  1. Rob You F4 is looking tremendous and what a smooth finish after wet sanding. I needed to rethink a bit and while I prefer to use my panel washes before I seal the decals, I do test them to be on the safe side that the PLW will not interact with the decal inks. You're so right in that all the clear layers can fill the panel lines and cause an issue. When I'm not sure what to do, I have no hesitations about using water based washes: Flory and UMP and no worries. Of course, another great reason for using masks. Keep 'em comin Peter
  2. I’m in the early stages of having my “cave” built as part of our renovation. I’m planning on building a few sets of wall mounted paint racks and I’ll post photos when done, but’s it’s still a ways away before I can occupy the my new model cave. Keep ‘em comin Peter
  3. For brush painting, Vallejo and Tamiya lacquers to be the two top contenders. Keep ‘em comin Peter
  4. Impressive work .... looking so good. Keep ‘em comin Peter
  5. John Drives me crazy all the time. I didn’t even know Floquil paints and thinners were still available. I use to use them all the time, especially when I was into model railroading many, many , many years ago and they were my number one paint. I’ll do some looking myself and see what I might be able to find. Keep ‘em comin Peter
  6. Rob Looking mighty sweet for sure. I’ve never experienced any residue from Tamiya tape, (sure hope my luck continues) even on Alclad and AK. Right now, I have the Tamiya tape on my Revell Mustang for a good month and I’m willing to be it will be a good month more before I can remove it, as that’s about when I’ll have my model room ready for use and the major heavy work of the Reno pretty much done. Fingers surely crossed🤞 My order of work: paint / clear gloss / decals / panel line wash / oils - filters / clear gloss / final clear finish. I don’t go over board on the clear gloss layers and if I’m worried on loosing panel line details, I’ll skip the first clear gloss and polish out the paint with Micro Mesh starting around 8000 and finishing up with 12,000 wet. What is needed for decaling is a smooth surface and polishing will always yield the smoothest surface by far. Decaling has to be done next so the effect of the panel line wash and filters is even across the surface and decals, what ever the degree of weathering. Keep ‘em comin Peter
  7. Kev The P&W R2800 Looks mighty good. not sure which B-26 I’ll be building later this year, plenty of time to thing and drive myself nuts🙃 Keep ‘em comin Peter
  8. Ryan Nice work on cleaning up the seams ... what would aircraft modeling be without filler and sanding? Keep 'em comin Peter
  9. Nice progress on your F4 - looking mighty good Keep 'em comin Peter
  10. Mike Very nice work on the figures - looking so good Keep 'em comin Peter
  11. Thanks Jeroen for the info. Have to agree with Martin, the 'fake button' with the printing looks so much more aeronautical. Keep 'em comin Peter
  12. John Nice work on the front office - looking mighty good. Just love the gray color. it's an eye catcher for sure. Keep 'em comin Peter
  13. MISSING: The SB F4 kit Video, it's not there! Anyone know if this means the kit has been cancelled? Keep 'em comin Peter
  14. Rob Gloss Black - Perfectly done. Keep 'em comin Peter
  15. Kev Nice start on the ICM B-26 -- interior work looks mighty good and I'll be following all the way. A kit that is going to be added to my stash and then onto the bench this year for sure. Keep 'em comin Peter
  16. Thanks Phil Going to have to give them a try. Keep 'em comin Peter
  17. Carl Nice progress on the Hurricane. The inserts for the gun ports are as good or better then those on a lot of newer kits, including the Revell P-51. Just never understood why this is such a difficult part to mold correctly and fit. Keep 'em comin Peter
  18. John My money is riding on you for another 'winner' Keep 'em comin Peter
  19. Rob Nice work on all the front office corrections and canopy masking - so glad you have nerves of steel. One detail part that doesn't work well with the Quinta Detail Set is the ejection pull-rings for the top of the seats; they won't hold shape and no matter what I did, just go back to the original flat shape. What I think I'm going to try when I can get back to modeling again is to try and glue a small piece of bent wire under the pull rings to hold the desired shape. Always seems to be something Keep 'em comin Peter
  20. Phil Nice to see you underway. Keep us posted on the glues as some are new to me. Keep 'em comin Peter
  21. Marco Right with the guys and add to the list some very nicely done realistic weathering Keep 'em comin Peter
