  1. I saw a few other FAQ books from the series and was impressed with them. So it was easy to allocate the funds. lol
  2. looking very nice. thinking in the '5 color' mindset helps me , that is every color is 5 colors - the base color and then 2 shades darker and 2 shades lighter = 5 colors
  3. So I sucked it up and had a perusal of the book. Close to $300.00 CDN. to my door. Literally. Packaging almost compromised the book , a double wrap of small bubble wrap and a cardboard book mailer in a plastic envelope. The 2 very small blunted lower corners of the book are of no concern to me. Easily the most thorough subject matter book in my collection. Large , heavy gloss , high color on every page , really really nice. Close to or over 500 pages. And because it is from MiG , I thought it may be a sales vehicle , but their supplies are in with all the others, no 'favouritism' . I look forward to reading it. Maybe improve my fig work.
  4. My example has arrived, however I,m too weak to carry it . The postmaster will deliver it on her lunch break. Just in time for an extended reading/recovery.
  5. The auction reached $450.00 American. Not enough to reach the reserve , but enough to help with gauging a value of the kit.
  6. thanks jeff not too bad my pelvis is cracked in 2 places , small cracks but broken bones hurt... not too mobile yet , only been 3 days. tripping over a pitchfork left on the ground almost levered my left leg outta the socket.
  7. Thank you Jeff. In my experience those opportunity's for display usually have a number prior entrants. We can dream though eh? Anyway a mishap has stopped me almost dead in my tracks. I hope some time at the work station will become available as A Gotha is nearing critical mass.
  8. gotta like the custom work stand!
  9. Put in an auction to gauge interest: Scale Model Graveyard (Trade/Sale/Auction Group) | Facebook
  10. There is a custom paint trick I have used for deep black. Mix the last coats with gloss clear 50/50 and watch that black get a mile deep.
  11. I agree with Hubert. Sold me on the book , I ordered right away. That ,and this dismal last attempt at a fig , convinced me the 40 books I already have on fig work are not enough:
  12. Not much iron on her , but you are right the iron is plated over the boiler area.
  13. lol jus' got shippy with the rest o' the boys Ernie! Its either the David or a 1/350 Tribal class destroyer for some CDN content. I have a resin Haida.
  14. lol After A Gotha; Already fully stoked. Another arguable failure that influenced warships and warfare at sea from that time on. Def on the cutaway: And the figs , allways the figs: And a fully detailed , fantastic story.
  15. Good on ya! However it may come to pass that the substance you put all that time into getting to work , may just be discontinued because you were the only one who got it to work! Then you will be re-applying your skills to the next substance all at your own cost! You will agree that the computer has enhanced out lives. You may not agree that the computer has degraded the way we treat each other.
  16. lol mighty fine photoshoppin! The model is nice too.
  17. Hub; Have you no knowledge of how teh computor industry works? lol They put the stuff out and wait for you to fix it. Pretty much since day one. The diff between odd Corels and even Corel numbers tells the story!
