  1. Way ahead of ya bud! I found my MRP flanker colors, the dark blue and grey are a pretty close match to the decals which is good to know if I need to do paint touch-up. As for the medium UAF Flanker blue… well, here’s how it looks on plastic
  2. I haven’t decided yet if I’ll use the DXM decal sheet for the digital camo Blue 58, or if I’ll use the Cutting Edge decal sheet for the 1996 scheme in splinter camo worn at Fairfield. Either way, the build is a GWH Su-27 single seater using a Quinta cockpit and Reskit paint masks. The Reskit masks cover a few panels to speed up painting, such as the grey tail leading edge panels, and also provide two differently sized canopy masks (plus interior canopy mask) to allow the painting of the canopy seal around the glass. Life is hectic right now so who knows how fast I will be able to build, but I’m pleased to participate either way. Stay tuned for photos, I’m starting to cut parts off sprues now! -Mike
  3. Anyone have one that they’d sell me? I have the decal sheet already and am liking this weird guppy-looking variant more and more. Thanks, Mike - mikeswinburne@gmail.com
  4. I have the new AIMS one I could part with. The set doesn’t come with decals but I should have some unused from my mostly-built Alley Cat set
  5. Subject says it all, I’m looking to buy a Kitty Hawk Su-34 (not interested in the Hobby Boss kit), and also a Dream Model J-15 conversion for the 1/48 Su-33. Please shoot me an email if you can help - mikeswinburne@gmail.com Thanks! Mike
  6. Ok I finally got the stash somewhat sorted. Add to the donation pile please a 1/32 Trumpeter P-40E, P-40M, or P-40N (winner’s choice of one of these three). If I come across any aftermarket for the kit in the next few days I’ll include in the box, not sure if I bought any yet.
  7. Bravo Herbert! The photon was my first resin printer and it's a brilliant machine.
  8. Please count me in, thanks Ernie. If I find something suitable in my stash I'll add it later - still haven't got to the point of unpacking and organizing all of that yet and I don't know what's what.
  9. Isn’t any move a big move when you have a model stash? 😎
  10. It’s something I want to do! We’re moving this weekend though so it’s a little hard to do anything hobby related just yet.
  11. Fusion did do a conversion but only in 1/48. It’s a very nice set if you can find one, I build one of them eons ago. I got a chuckle at the timing of this post, as I was just thinking about making one of these in 32nd scale last week
  12. My word, that seaplane tender it gorgeous!
  13. Glad you made it there and I hope you have a great time. Which mike? Speaking from experience, about every 3rd person at the show is probably named Mike 😛
  14. Nothing exists yet unfortunately, with the exception of the old Paragon conversion set
  15. Hey Harv, there’s a guy on Facebook looking for an albatros, he’s been messaging me today. Will connect you with him
  16. Please drop me a line if you have one you'd part with, US only for postage costs please. Thanks! Mike mikeswinburne@gmail.com
  17. You’re going to need to make significant changes to the wings and tailplane… the cowling as well depending which production batch you’re modeling. You can’t just stick floats on a Roden Albatros and call it a W4 unfortunately
  18. I have the 1/24 here - it’s the nicest and best detailed kit I’ve ever seen that wingnut developed, of all kits that have been released. And the wings are dead flat in it too, no curving to fix
  19. Since Floyd isn't a member on LSM, I offered to share his news from his Facebook post. "Sneak Peak: HH-60J/MH-60T Conversion for the Kitty Hawk HH-60H. CAD done by Mike Swinburne and decals done by the faithful Mason Doupnik. Hopefully coming to the IPMS/USA National Convention. A lot of things have to align to make this happen. Fingers crossed" I'm really excited for this one! Floyd got me roped in to do the CAD designs for the new parts; someone else had already designed the radome and short fuel tank. Some parts are not shown in the attachments including a fully new control panel for the -T, parts to add to the existing kit panel for the -J, the older style flir dome and SX16 searchlight. Maybe additional items if needed too.
  20. Very nice!!!!!!!! If I wasn't building an unarmed assembly ship, I'd be dropping money on these like they were going out of style.
  21. I don’t think it would sadly… Think you’d be doing a total or near-total scratchbuild
  22. Thanks for posting the close-ups, Cees. I'm very excited for the kit despite knowing next to nothing about the airplane. Looking at the surface details on the wings, to my untrained eye they look ...off. Were the fuel tanks (?) outboard of the nacelles really raised up above the main wing surface like that and with such pronounced external ribbing?
