  1. Gaz Sure wish I was back in my 50's Peter

  3. Harv Nice going and and some super progress. Just keep taking your time and don't rush it. Looking mighty good Keep 'em comin Peter
  4. Martin I'm just blown away - amazing work - simply amazing Keep 'em comin Peter
  5. Ernie The "extra" set of controls look mighty good. Of course, back in the day, most mechanics surely knew how to 'wing it' Keep 'em comin Peter
  6. MIke Brilliant ... looking simply stellar: NMF! Keep 'em comin Peter
  7. Geez, what memories .. I mean the movie - I'm old but NOT that old! Peter
  8. Tony Looking mighty sweet and I'm more in tune with Ernie that the judges might notice the seam on the boot and not know it really represents an actual seam. Martin's suggestion an adding a bit of stitching is a great idea. Keep 'em comin Peter
  9. Frank Awesome progress on the detailing and cammo/weathering. Looking mighty good and the weathering is spot on. Keep 'em comin Peter
  10. John Great idea and I'm strapped in for the journey. Keep 'em comin Peter
  11. Thanks Guys Wumm, just good to be back and building again. Right now, we are having some pretty powerful Thunder Boomers and I've been so busy at the bench, I just noticed. Thanks Bill; The Tiffy is making steady progress and the front office is almost to the point of the required update... News at 11! Ernie, thanks for checking in a and it's great to know we've all been in the same boat at one time or another. MY Tiffy and your Lanc, two Big Bursars for sure but it looks like they did the trick Peter
  12. Congrats Carl ..A true modeler in the works! Peter
  13. Ernie Just finished catching up and as always am thoroughly enjoying each update, all the posts and comments from the gang. Following and learning from your progress is a treat but your build threads go way beyond ‘what I’ve done’, as the work progresses it becomes an adventure we all are sharing together. Fantastic work my friend, just stellar. The discussion of traffic was kicked around and I couldn’t agree more. Afterall, I live on long Island (New York) and our traffic is world famous. Cram as many millions of people onto the island, plunked adjacent to the east side of NYC and we’re talking traffic! Oh what a joy going anywhere at the speed of a snail, which becomes going no where fast! Keep ‘em comin Peter
  14. Yup, I’m right in line with Hubert and the guys, as I’ve long run out superlatives and just stare in amazement at every photograph, coupled with your narration on how the work was done. Surely I’m in the Modeling Twilight Zone as I enter each update Keep ‘em comin Peter
  15. Hi John Great to see the preliminary air brush work underway and the P-39 is moving down the line Keep ‘em comin Peter
  16. Rob Glad you're strapped in and along r the journey. I bought the Montex mask set knowing zippo about how to use them while I was ordering the HGW seatbelt set (trying to save a bit on shipping). I'm hoping they work the same as the Maketar masks as I'm sure they aren't Kabuki style. I'll do some testing when they arrive and see how it goes. Of course, my biggest concern is using the the correct paint colors. Peter
  17. Thanks Phil and great to have turned the corner and back in the saddle with all my friends on LSM. I have the Tiffy underway and even a started a build thread. My plan is to work no more then three bench sessions a week, helping to keep the fires stoked and keep the juices up and running. Peter
  18. jeff Happy Birthday to your dad and what a gift turning 97! My parents and almost all my uncles and aunts are gone as well. Way more important to be with your parents and modelling just has to wait. Peter
  19. Hav Hang in there Buddy, with all with you and here for you. Peter
  20. Gaz Will be following all the way and of course, The Blue max is also one of my favorite movies. But for me, Twelve O'clock High is number one followed by Patton and then Dive Bombers. BTW, super work on the three WNW aircraft. Keep 'em comin Peter
  21. Mike Brilliant work - I'm just blown away. Keep 'em comin Peter
  22. WOW! Awesome Tiffy! Great advice and I've been super carefully cleaning up every part and triple checking the fit as I go. Is there a link to your build as I'm sure there are gems of tips and techniques to follow and learn. Peter
