  2. I've got to believe it's the same molds as the still available Minicraft kit. Even in 1/200, the beast is huge...
  3. Nice scheme on that Goose! It will look excellent on your Seabee!
  4. FWIW, it's available at my LHS (Brookhurst Hobbies).
  5. 1/72 profiles of the A through G as well as top and bottoms views of the D and F are available in Republic F-105 Thunderchief bu Jarosław Dobrzyński. This is an outstanding reference and I highly recommend it, even if you do find those rather large 1/48 plans.
  6. I'm going to build L.E. Curdes' Bad Angel. Let's start with a contemporaneous photo. Notice the kill markings? German, Italian, Japanese, and, um, American! Wikipedia has this to say: And here's a photo of Curdes and his bride, Svetlana Valeria Shostakovich Brownell. How many husbands can claim they shot their future bride out of the sky? I'll be using the Airfix A05106 North American F-51D Mustang boxing and CAM 48-115 Mustang Thoroughbreds
  7. Wow, that's truly outstanding work. So well done, that it's actually quite chilling...
  8. Coming along nicely! Is the other color gray or aluminized paint? If not gray, be careful if you're going to try Alclad atop the yellow as the base color will show through.
  9. 1/32 is 1.5 times the size of 1/48--50% larger. Assuming Master have done their job correctly, this photo, this photo, and this photo suggest it would be noticeable. Whether you're able to live with this or your viewers are knowledgeable enough to recognize it is a different story. Are you converting a kit or is the kit set that bad? You could try scratch building this. Albion tubing would go a long way in either event.
  10. I truly understand your position--I was in exactly the same spot. But, they did come through in the end. I don't believe this person is being malicious or deceitful, but is very disorganized and not at all diligent in running a business. Having written that, do continue your diligence until you have product in hand. IMHO, the best course for the owner is to focus on building masters while finding somebody else to run the business, including model production.
  11. Please add me as I will always join any Grumman-focused GB.
  12. I have two possibilities. First is NAA;s NA-73X from AM's 1/48 Mk1A Mustang kit plus resin bits to back-date it. Also Grumman's G-98, (a.k.a., XF9F-9, the F11F prototype) from Lindberg's 1/48 F11F kit, which mostly just needs a cockpit.
  13. I use a Vanda Lay Hold It Plus for the little of that work that I do. I was able to form a 1/48 LCM water barrel And modifying a spinner for a 1/48 Lysander
