  1. Best I could do are these
  2. Rest of the cockpit finished, there are still a few parts to go on the instrument hoods, and I still need to figure out how I’m going to weather everything, and to what extent.
  3. Having seen what GWH have done with Russian jets, I definitely will be getting the P-40, and no doubt on the SR-71. Razor crest is one I want, but it depends who is doing it.
  4. Today I started with the front pit, these are far easier than PE, all the levers, knobs, and handles are printed front and back, so the side stuck to the paper is also colored. One thing to note, these are really 3D printed vinyl parts, they are not decals. Yes they are printed on decal paper, which makes them easy to remove by the modeler after printing, the glue is very weak. I did a test and tried to stick one of the panels on with the decal adhesive on the back, however, it just does not stick well. I dipped them into water, set them on a paper towel, and slide them off to dry (t
  5. Step 1, shave the plastic. Because of the way Quinta is made and fits, I use an Xacto chisel blade to shave off the bumps, but you don’t have to sand it down flat. Some parts I sanded if the panels were a little too pronounced, but on this kit, it mostly just required switches and knobs shaved off. After that, I sprayed everything Dark Gull Gray, but hindsight, I think I should have tried dark Ghost Gray, might have matched slightly better.
  6. So I started a new project in the last few hours of 2020, it’s a commission build that I promised to have done by end of January 2021, so I better get my butt moving! The build is going to be box stock Tamiya F-14D with the Gunfighter 164 from VF-101 Grim Reapers 2004 scheme, the exception being the Quinta Studios 3D interior. Originally, my customer wanted the Grim Reaper scheme included with the AMK Tomcat, but neither of us wanted to invest in a whole kit just for the decals, so we are going with the Tamiya option, OK with me, the slightly more colorful scheme looks good too.
  7. This is getting funny, if not sad. When I was younger I see to laugh about how old people sit around and complaint about all their health ailments, now I’m one of them.
  8. I think some of this is due to just old age and abusing my body in my early years. And from my neurologist’s own words, sometime we just never know why someone develops neuropathy. Usually it’s blamed on Diabetes, but considering for me, it’s fairly recent diagnosis, it’s hard to pin it on that. Due to other conditions, I go to a doctor at least twice a year, so it’s not like diabetes was unchecked for a long time. I turned 51 yesterday, and it seems like I started going down hill at 49...the joys of getting older.
  9. May only be one, but it’s a stunner, I love this aircraft, it’s piękny!
  10. Yes, I have been collecting stuff for a few years, I can’t even remember what I bought, but I’m probably going to order more from the above company, I like their engine light kit as well as their cockpit with figures.
  11. Well this was an unusual year to say the least, I can’t even begin to go over all the weirdness, but at least I can show some of my completed kits. Not the best year for completions, but not the worst either. I ended up with 8 completed models, although I don’t have any photos of the Tamiya P-51D, it was a “good enough” finish, I slapped it together just to say it’s done, but many things went wrong during the painting stage, so rather than re-paint it, I left it alone, as I know what I did wrong and I have more in the stash, so I will address those issues on the next build.
  12. That is a great kit, the only reason I didn’t buy it was that I have a Deagostini Studio Scale Millennium Falcon in my stash. Be very careful with weathering and paint, these do not like enamel and oil washes or paints, a friend of mine found large cracks in his after he used a wash.
