  1. Thank you for getting rid of the girder rivets on the back wall! They were hurting my eyes!
  2. When I was single, I bought my first house, one of the rooms was an engine building room, where I built engines for my hot rods. So, no shame in toolboxes in the house!

  4. The newer tool ones tend to be easier, I built some older 1/72 kits a few years ago, they were a nightmare. Newer kits are getting nicer. Maybe the Yak-3 or Tempest. You will most likely have to deal with some fit issues, fabrication, resin, and PE on most others.
  5. yes, i saw that too, awesome idea!
  6. 8! Yes, I got tired of filling and sanding, these hasegawa P-40's need a lot of work, plus I took on a gray matter conversion. I decided that I am going to get back on these, but I need to tackle paint two at a time. I cant handle painting them all at once. I also have 2x P-40B (not started yet). 2x P-40E 1x P-40F (started, but in the box) 2x P-40K 1x P-40L 2x P-40N (early and late)
  7. I have, its better than Sprue Brothers! The crazy thing is, he buys 3-4 of every new kit that comes out, with AM!
  8. You definitely win this game. But my friend Ron up in Minnesota is the King of SOD. He has probably 3000-4000 kits, and at least half had been started. He actually finished 2 models in the past 10 years.
  9. My SOD is the most literal definition...a shelf. Of course, this isn’t showing my Fokker D.VII, B-24, P-47, Zero, SD.KFZ 222, and Wessex. So I hang my head in shame at 15 models.
  10. Trumpeter kits may not be 100% perfect, but they build very easy, quick builds or good for beginners.
  11. That was a bad picture, this one is better. I was torn if I should have used my last set of Resin2detail radios, as they are no longer made. I decided to save them for either the B-17 or B-24 build. I added some scratch detail to the kit radios, pretty basic, but as they are buried below the camera, it would be hard to see them later. I also robbed the battery from my Trumpeter P-51B. It’s basic, but not terrible. I also made a fluid reservoir (not sure for what), and finally added lead wire to all the cockpit boxes, not visible here.
  12. I have a couple books too, if you need specific info, I can take a pic of a few of the pages
