  1. Now that is a color scheme you don't see very often. Very well done. Outstanding. Cheers, Jerry
  2. This is pretty much the same system that ARC went to. I noticed on there and on here too that when you are in the unread content section and click on a thread, read it, and then click back to the rest of the unread section the the thread that you just read is gone. No longer in the unread content. Is that because the thread has been read and is no longer considered as "unread"? Just curious. Would rather it stay after being read so it can be referred back to while still being in the unread section. Cheers, Jerry
  3. Brave Man is right. I am currently working on the Revell Bf-110C-4. Good old nostalgia build. Built one back in the late '70s but it got destroyed when I moved from NM to Texas. Good luck Mikester. Cheers, Jerry
  4. Usually have 2 or 3 going at the same time. Have a F-18C and F-18D going right now with a 32nd F-15E being a shelf queen at the moment. Have been doing a 1 to 1 project of redoing my kitchen since Oct. so models have taken a backseat at the present. Thanks for the kind replies all. Jerry

  6. Not very productive this year. The older I get the slower I get.

  7. My year ending (2015) build was the Hobby Boss 1/32 F-84E Thunderjet which I started back in the spring. I get slower with age. I used the AMS resin seat with bits & pieces from the Eduard PE interior set to enhance the cockpit a bit. Replaced the nasty rubber tires with a real nice set of resin wheels from Fisher Models. Painted with 3 shades of Alcald II. This is my first HB kit and I was amazed at how well it went together with very little putty used. A lot of the parts just more or less snapped into place needing just a touch of glue to secure them. The front wind screen just snapped down right into place and needed no glue at all. Cheers, Jerry
  8. Outstanding. Love it. And on the tarmac in a Nebraska cornfield, no less.... Cheers, Jerry
  9. Great job and I am glad you mentioned the difference in the MM RLM 79 between the enamal and acrylic. Got a couple of those desert schemes I want to do and I like the way yours looks. Cheers, Jerry
  10. Micro Superfilm is one of the products made by MicroScale along with their decal solvent and set. The super film is clear and is used to help save old decals or in my case ones that were cracking when coming off the sheet. Brushing the film over the decal in effect puts a new clear film over the decal. Dries in minutes. Once dry, cut the decal very close to its original clear film and apply as usual. This stuff has saved many a decal for me. I swear by it. Cheers, Jerry
  11. That looks really great Greg. You guys that can brave vac kits and WW I kits with all their rigging have my utmost admiration. You did an outstanding job. Cheers, Jerry
  12. Finished this Hasegawa 1/32 F-104S of 23 Gruppo, 5 Stormo Italian AF a few days after I finished the P-39D. Replaced the seat with a resin seat from CMK and decals are from Zotz which did not perform well. First decal off the sheet started breaking apart while moving it into position. Had to end up using MicroFilm for all the rest of them and even then a few still broke apart under the film. Cheers, Jerry
  13. Thanks Jeroen. Was about ready to PM you about it, then it took okay. Cheers, Jerry
  14. Been away for awhile. Here is my most recent completion, the Revell/Special Hobby 1/32 P-39D Airacobra "Airacutie" of the 36th FS, 8th FG at Milne Bay, New Guinea, Pacific 1943. Totally OOB and a real PITA to build. Or for me it was, anyway. Cheers, Jerry
  15. Was having trouble changing my email address, but got it to work okay. Cheers, Jerry
