  1. The empire is hard at work below decks preparing for December 7th. This is my first attempt at painting my own insignias, but I guess there's nothing easier than Japanese roundels.
  2. The detail on Hasegawa's D3A1 is already quite good, I just added a few copper wires and photo etch.
  3. For the 80th anniversary of Pearl Harbor coming up in a month, my next build will be one of the perpetrators of that attack. I hope to release the Let's Build video and the showcase photos on December 7th. Stay tuned.
  4. Death has come to your little networking hub. You can either ignore it, or you can give my latest build a like.

  6. I've begun painting this past week, The Shape is taking form.
  7. Thanks for the info everyone. I guess I'll try the glass dropper bottles and experiment with just one paint first to be safe.
  8. Hola comrades, I just had a cunning plan but I wanted to see if anyone else has ever tried this themselves. I have decided to switch from Vallejo to Tamiya for Airbrush painting but Tamiya's jars are so inconvenient to me compared to Vallejo's dropper bottles. So i'm curious, has anyone here ever tried transferring their Tamiya paints to dropper bottles (either plastic or glass)? I'd like to know if it would work or just instantly dry up due to a adverse reaction.
  9. I think it's the same kit, this one has a lighting setup for the jack o lantern.
  10. Contact me for your own Michael Myers Chia Pet lol.
  11. For my annual october horror figure build, I will release this mold from 15 years of captivity so that he may stare menacingly at me from my shelf. I will begin work on Moebius' 1/8 scale Michael Myers and I will try to do John Carpenter justice.
  12. Hola comrades. I'm building a subject that I don't quite want to reveal yet, all I can say is that it's a japanese second world war dive bomber built by Aichi. I got some eduard photo etch seatbelts for it but the instructions only mention belts for Mitsubishi, Nakajima & Kawanishi. Would anyone here know which belts Aichi aircraft used?
  13. Thanks, I found the kit okay for Eduard standards. It had some flash but the detail was pretty good.
  14. My latest subject complete is my personal favorite aircraft of all time, Manfred Von Richthofen's Fokker Dr.I. And I know you're all well informed enthusiasts but please, I already know that he didn't like the Dr.I and that he only got a few kills flying it. Anyway this was my first World War 1 subject in quite a long time and the process was way different than what i've grown used to so please let me know how it looks. If you want a closer step by step look you can check out my Let's Craft video on Youtube @Of Models & Monsters.
  15. I thought it was excellent, the only minor flaw I can think of was sink marks on the exhaust pipes but regardless I highly recommend it.
  16. I may be wrong but I thought that RAF pilots were told to keep all control surfaces level for inspection.
  17. The Spitfire is finished and you can see the final result here.
  18. My Eduard Spitfire is complete. Being one of my favorite planes, I always try my best with Spitfires and this may be my best work yet. If you're interested you can check out my entire building process on Youtube at Of Models & Monsters.
  19. Just tried Eduard's new "peel away film" decals on the build, not sure what everyone's complaining about with these. I find these to be quite good, yes I did have some areas that peeled parts of the decal off, but about 95% of them peeled great. I think just as long as you use the proper solvents and make sure there are no air bubbles, these are fantastic. The build is almost done, just panel wash, matt coat and a few parts yet to be glued on remain.
  20. The main airframe is built minus the prop and wheels, now it's ready for priming and painting.
  21. After getting a new airbrush and resuming my duties, all the interior parts are painted and waiting for their clear coat, panel wash and matt coat.
  22. As fate would have it; after years of carefully handling airbrushes with no major issues, today was the day I decided to clumsily drop mine and bend the inner tubing rendering it useless. So now while I try to negotiate a replacement, my spitfire build will be delayed indefinitely.
  23. A casting call of all the loose parts that will be airbrushed before full assembly of the interior.
