  1. For your research purposes, Cheetos are here. As noted above, orange fingers are a key part of the Cheetos experience.
  2. It's the Accurate Miniatures kit. Excellent basis, but not without well documented issues. There's also substantial AM if you partake. It is also released by Academy (they mark it as an AccMin kit).
  3. The document linked up there claims they're going to rerelease their 1/72 Gato!
  4. Paul, sadly, that's my experience too. But he did, finally, deliver after my sharply worded email. BTW, if anybody wants the Coors Light decal sheet, send me a PM with your address and I'll mail it to you.
  5. Very nice work! There's a good reason that era was called the Golden Age of Aviation.
  6. Outstanding work Old hacksaw blades are also an excellent source for making molding cutters. File the shape just as you did with the single-edge blade.
  7. I'm ready. I've got the GWH 1/144 Vulcan B.2 and fundekals markings.
  8. I'll join! Likely candidates from the previous millennium include 1/48 F9F-5P, various AT-6 boxings, C-47, F-105D, TBF, 1/110 Mercury Capsule & Atlas Booster, and 1/72 PT-109 (for which I have some cool shark mouth markings).
  9. Truly outstanding work! Those are animations. Open the image in a new tab and they shown fine!
  10. Nice work! I see that it actually has cockpit detail! Certainly a big step up from those Hawk 1/48 racers, which provide no cockpit detail beyond an amorphous pilot blob.
  11. Ooh, that Heavylift Guppy looks tasty! Dang!
  12. Hang on, I thought I read you lot owe cricket to an alien visit?
  13. Your outstanding result is all the more of an accomplishment, then!
  14. I don't rely on ratios, I rely on thickness, like 1% milk or a little thinner. For Mr Color Gloss (C46), I thin with Mr Leveling Thinner, spray at 15 PSI (1 atm), 0.5mm nozzle, 5-15cm, temp no lower than 18c. Being in Southern CA, humidity is generally low unless its actually raining or the marine layer is overhead (I live near the coast). For flat and satin, Microscale Industries Micro Flat or Micro Satin, thinned with water as above. Spraying as above. All three dry quite quickly. I'll usually only apply multiple coats for gloss. As always, coverage first then a final gloss coat. HTH -- dnl
  15. Glad to see this coming along! I've got one in the stash and I hope to eventually follow in your footsteps!
