    Modeling, obviously. Any and all German WWII vehicles that saw production beyond the prototype stage (with a couple of exceptions); WWII aircraft of all nations; some Sci-Fi. Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Horror genre book collector for over 40 years. Air-cooled Volkswagen enthusiast. Cat person. Role-player/card-flopper and PC gamer. Former college radio disc jockey specializing in American 80's Punk and underground metal with a ridiculously large music collection I will not live to listen to in totality.

  1. I worked on two kits most of the day.
  2. What I often find on the other site is that when people do build armor, they act like it is the most daunting challenge in the world and they are so stunning and brave for attempting it.
  3. I guess it would depend on how well it adheres to plastic and whether or not you can thin it down enough to spray good and provide coverage without drowning detail. I know people use those cheap craft acrylics you buy for kids projects with no problems.
  4. Hoping to have these two finished by next weekend. I knew about the Stuka's issues going in and felt my OOB/just build for fun attitude would see me through, but the kit almost got punched a couple of times.
  5. I've seen the one at the Udvar-Hazy Center outside Washington, DC. It is ugly.
  6. Still working, and when I get home I still have all my chores to do because my wife and kids aren't able to do some of them during the day. This whole thing has been no different from any other day except many of the places I normally go are closed and some people wear masks.
  7. 1. The estimate is 70-88, varying by sources used and if you count the prototypes and the last few built after VE day. 2. The first Jagdtiger I built was the Porsche variant. That was the Dragon kit from 1995. No zimmerit on their kits yet so I built mine as chassis 305012, which was the only Porsche without it as the Germans terminated application of that crap with 305011. The Henschels had none applied. Dragon later released a zimmerit version that had Magic Tracks but since Takom and Meng started pumping out big cats I decided to wait to update for a contemporary kit. The fact the Takom is cheaper than the Dragon is a huge plus. 3. Yes, all but the last Porsche and none of the Henschels. Bonus fact 4. The last Porsche was left overall Dunkelgelb, which made it easy to come up with a camo scheme when I finished assembly.
  8. With the pre-order at 40 Euros, anybody have a guess as to the regular price? Just wondering if I should get one now or just wait if the difference is small.
  9. Your clone army is ready for delivery, Emperor.
  10. I did not dispute anything you said. Look who I was quoting. I was stating that Greg couldn't sell an Infinity kit months before it was released. Serious lack of reading comprehension.
  11. I know this might sound weird, but having grown up in Pensacola from 1964-1987 I actually got bored of seeing the Angels all the time when they would practice. My grandmother's house was on the opposite side of Bayou Grande from PNAS in Warrington. Ten minute ride to the front gate. I do miss the Lexington, though.
  12. I know that, and quite some time before you did apparently. Greg has been selling Hph for many years (I bought an Me 410 from him) but even he is unable to sell a kit several months ago that has just now hit the sellers. At any rate, Infinity isn't exactly Hph; Hph is the parent company of Infinity. Hph still maintains its resin studio for its custom models used in museums and advertising that don't need to be mass produced. Infinity is the smart move (with the help of Fly, I believe) to make the higher demand kits easier to mass produce and generate more revenue.
  13. You might find that time consuming, but let me tell you how lucky you are Takom provides a track guide for assembly. My Dragon build did not include a guide nor Magic Tracks; not even DS. It was the old school 'every single piece needs clipping and cleaning' kind.
