  1. Hello from Oklahoma, via Detroit, which is like saying Windsor.... Double Sargent Sacko Salute to all you Canadian modeling fans (including myself!) Greg in OK
  2. OK!!! Back on track. Big delays due to my activities but I am building again. Photos soon..(this weekend likely) Greg in OK
  3. Totally different matt levels...terribly obvious on the plane, not obvious on the sheet. I just missed it. Greg in OK
  4. Oh I have to finish it, I was just disappointed I ran out of time on the clock. I will post it and keep everyone informed. Greg in OK
  5. Pens Down....I did not finish. In addition to the England trip (see my post on Big Typhoon Coming) I was also slowed by concurrently building two Hase Hurricanes. As of this morning this how far I got... Of all the things to stump me the decals screwed me up big time. I may strip them and go with a different all black Hurri. Greg in OK
  6. Pens up! Well, I consider it a valent try but I did not get the Typhoon done. Here is where I am as of this morning... two or three things slowed my down, the first being the number of times I had to find/sand/fill/sand...….. Some areas were very poor and I just got to the point where it doesn't look to bad yesterday. AND...I took 2 1/2 weeks off in England, great trip and saw a few air museums. Just Boscombe, Tangmere, Shuttleworth (opening day). Duxford (1/2 hour tailwheel instruction in a Moth), Midland Air Museum, and FAA Museum. Also Bath, Stonehenge, Old Sarum, Isle of Wight and 4 nights on a narrow boat rental. So....no building time, just inspiration time. Greg in OK
  7. Great looking decals but they seem to have gone under....I will look around on Evil-Bay. Greg in OK
  8. He's right. It can... Looking for Washington markings myself, but hard to find on this side of the pond. Do you know the proper roundel sizes? Greg in OK
  9. Does anyone know what amount of nose weight I will need to stop the Academy B-24 from being a tail sitter? I was surprised there was no suggestion on the instructions. Greg in OK
  10. Does anyone know what amount of nose weight I will need to stop the Academy B-24 from being a tail sitter? I was surprised there was no suggestion on the instructions. Greg in OK
  11. Superb build! It is close to time for me to start mine. I did learn one important thing from the stripes you did. I will choose a scheme without stripes. Greg in OK
  12. Wow, great stuff. Thanks for info. In searching the net myself I found a commentary that the two Hurricanes of the 64th Sentai had their tails "painted white" after a friendly fire incident, JUST a narration, no pictures, and who knows what THEY meant by their "tails". Thanks again. GREAT photos. Greg in OK (but headed to England in a couple weeks)
  13. OPINION TIME!! Yes, this is the time where I ask experts and novices alike what their opinion of the options I should choose. As a reminder I am building two Hasegawa 1/72 Hurricanes, the kit has few options but I would like your opinion on which I should pick. I will describe the part options as best as I can and ask you for TWO DIFFERENT BUILDS which may very on their options. Here we go...first question Exhaust stacks... 6 hole per side or 3 hole per side "kidney" stacks...(the kidney stacks are stock Hasegawa plastic parts, the 6 hole stacks are white metal) For (first plane) Hurricane MkIA (Z2899) in VVS/Russian service. Served as night fighter. I THINK it has the 3 hole kidney stacks, not sure.... Same plane, the TAILWHEEL. the stock molded on Hasegawa tailwheel or the one that looks beefier and comes as a optional part on the sprue (you have to cut of the molded on one.) Second question. Hurricane CAPTURED by the Japanese in Malaya, flown by 64th Sentai. Same two questions...exhaust 3 or 6 and tailwheel, molded on or separate part? Thanks for any input, no matter how expert or how misguided.. Greg in OK
  14. I will be building a PBJ (Patrol Bomber North American) Mitchell for the GB. If I can fine enough markings to replicate them, I will build a Mitchell from VMB-614, my Father-in-Laws group. Although they were the last unit PBJ transfer to theater in WWII, he did spend his entire flying career in the Mitchell as a radio operator/gunner. VMB-614 spent a large amount of it's time stateside working out kinks for the units already transferred to the front. As such he flew in the PBJ with all the different radar positions (4 different spots, I believe), working out the Tiny Tim delivery system and any other "odds and mods" support they needed. A link to their unit history can me found here http://vmb614.com/index.html Greg in OK
