  1. Hi Rob, what are you building at present?   Oz

      Hi Oz,

      not much benching time due to other things that keep my mind occupied.
      Actually my last build was a wooden shelf for a round little room in our house :-)
      It is a present for my wive.

      Cheers Rob

    Hi Mac , nice subject choice, I've one in the stash as well, so I'm interested in watching you start yours. Might mount mine on a stand wheels up in flight, we'll see when it makes it to the bench. These days I draw straws about which kit emerges from the stash as a build, after my P40 warhawk is finished (soon) it will be time to re-draw. cheers Oz

    One in all in !
  4. Soo.... What did you just get???

    Hi Rob, no WIP on this one, might post a photo later, will start on rivets tomorrow before I pre shade panel lines. Photo bucket a pain in butt but will sort something. I've finally landed a D-9 wulf from Hasegawa, just waiting for resin parts to turn up, so the P40 is on the workbench currently. I like this kit, the undercarriage looks great, primed wheels etc and ready to go. I like the decals that you've got for yours, the skull looks really mean and the white spinner looks the part too! Is that what your building? Cheers Oz

  6. Soo.... What did you just get???

    Hi doc, got mine built up to external paint, can u enlighten me with some reference material to help me with the rivet process that I want to achieve. I'm doing version 'C' as I've always wanted to do an earlier version of the warhawk. I'll be watching your WIP . Cheers oz
  7. Soo.... What did you just get???

    Hi doc, I got one too, just finished the build, external paint to follow. I'm building the version on paint scheme 'C', I've always wanted to build this version. Got any plans for the riveting? I need a reference, any advice appreciated? Cheers Oz

    Many thanks! Oz
  9. P-47 Thunderbolt " Dottie Mae"

    Hi frank, nice subject choice. I'm glad to see that your tackling the pop rivet issue, I've got a 'Dottie' as well, and I was wondering about how to rivet the beast. I've got a trumpeter P47 that won't make it to the hall of fame, but left in the box as a kit o shame, but at least it's a visual reference to rivet. What is the reference that your looking at? I can't ever find these things on the web, can you enlighten me please? Keep up the good work! Cheers. Oz

    I will certainly keep an eye on this, the stern of the sub looks awesome! Thanks for renewing my enthusiasm..cheers Oz

    Nice subject choice, will watch this one progress. Looking cool so far! Cheers Oz
  13. Soo.... What did you just get???

    I think I paid $65-75 for the 109G and $85 for the wulf, that's why I'm hurting. The 190 is the better kit, especially the instructions!
  14. Soo.... What did you just get???

    Both kits are crap, I think u got ripped off paying 9$ each
  15. Hasegawa J2M3 Raiden - In Between Build

    I always use tamiya enamel, never fails, easy to get the right consistency, only found one problem, the paint will turn to poop if you mix general purpose with enamel thinners, the paint goes really thick and generally turns out kaput, strait in the trash it goes. You've put me onto another good thing, these make tar masks, I want to try them as montex leaves a glue on the clear pieces that near impossible to remove and makes your canopies look fugly. Keep up the good work mate! Cheers. Oz
