    HK Models 1/32 Lancaster Hints, Tweaks and Tips,

    Get into the groove, boy, you're gonna show your tip to me, yeah. Posting your little video, yeah, you made in your studio, is a great help to me.

    T30/34 (U.S. Heavy Tank) 1:35 TAKOM

    I like your table cloth. Do you like the link'n'length tracks or would you have preferred all individual links? They certainly save time and aren't as tedious but for German tanks you lose the ability to set your own sag -- and all I build is German. I've only built Takom's 12.8cm twin flak gun, which was an early kit with some fit issues but I have a couple of tanks in the stash that are more recent. How is this kit comparing to other brands you may have built if you are able to rate it yet?

    I must be crazy, B-24J on the bench.

    But dude, you're Bomber_County! Surely you have more than one in you.

    1:32 Kawasaki Ki-45 Kai Tei Type 2 "Toryu"

    I heard they wait until a kit is generally available before putting individual sprues on sale.

    Hey Armor fans!

    I live in the U.S. and order mostly from overseas.
  6. Stopped at an antique mall in Lavonia, GA, on my way to NYC last week and found this on a shelf of military-themed books: Anyone here familiar with this book? A quick search doesn't turn up a second volume, although from perusing this volume I am not sure what is left to cover. This book is full to the brim with awesome, and nearly makes up for the hellacious four days of driving I did over the weekend which was full of the worst traffic I have seen in years. Only had time to visit the Strand in Manhattan as far as books go, but I never find anything good there.

    Brummbär! I beg your pardon! 27/Dec/18

    The rust on mufflers isn't from water/rain; it is primarily heat cooking off the paint and oxidising the metal.

    Soo.... What did you just get???

    A Liberator and a half-dozen Dragon armor kits, plus some large jars of pigments. Also going shoe shopping during the after-Christmas sales to get a pair of Doc Martens.

    Only one finished build in 2018 :(

    Well, what I do in quantity you make up for in quality. This looks to just the way I would expect it to; I can picture it sitting on the tarmac at Pensacola NAS which was on the other side of Pensacola Bay from me during my childhood years.

    So, could the mistakes be the fault of the Chinese government's restriction on internet access and HB's ability to research it properly?

    I am suspecting the wing issue might be a CAD error in translating the shape. It happens quite a bit. Revell He 219 cowlings, for example.

    HK Models 1:32 Lancaster accesories

    I don't know if I can say I've ever seen one of those in real life. Good thing about VWs -- like model kits, there is a huge aftermarket and I wasted no time getting an improved sway bar for the front end.

    Never had that issue in my bus. However, crosswinds made highways fun.

    So, what did you pay for gas ?
