  1. Yeah Ernie But all of that isn't as bad as 18,000 a day of illegal immigrants coming into your state Ron G
  2. Hey all I'm back! Yupp I'm back on the ol Hellcat. I have accumulated some more aftermarket stuff for this build. No pictures yet I still going over my previous work to see if I need to make any corrections, none so far. I'm also doing another one of these in FAA colors. It will be aircrft jv131 EL from 800 squadron on the HMS Emperor during "D" day, so it will be extra dark sea grey/ slate grey over sky with invasion stripes and red cowl, ought to look pretty cool in those colors. If anyone knows of anybody that make 1/24 scale decals of this plane I would be very grateful. See you soon Ron G
  3. Hey Harv Any progress on this? I've been using this to do my FW190-A5 build, so don't stop know, I'll be stuck...lol Great build so far. Ron G
  4. Hey John Another superbly done bent wing bird! I sure hope I can come close to your Corsair master peices on my Tamiya F4u-1A. John, I have a question for you. Do you think it would be possible to fit the Aires gun bay for the Trumpeter 1D into the Tamiya 1A? Or are they to different? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Ron G
  5. SO you do know how to build something other than a Corsair...lol. Great looking Spit. John. I'm working on a Tamiya Mk. IXc in the same paint scheme, but British, I hope it turns out as nice. RonG
  6. Great looking bent wing Frank! I hope my F4U-1A turns out as nice. RonG
  7. Hey K5ikl Actually the Vallejo metal colors work fairly well for brush painting, small items that is, bigger ones I would use my airbrush. Ron G
  8. Hey Gaz How did you get your Synthetic Ordinance Works landing gear? There's no way of getting ahold of them on there web site. I'm looking for there set for Hasagawa's FW190A-5/8 there #MLGS 1005 and the set for Trumpeters P-38J/L there #MLGS 1013. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Ron G
  9. Great build John Keep up the usual great work. Ron G
  10. Hey Scott I use two acrylic/plastic nail polish racks they hold about 65 of the Vallejo bottles each, are easy to hang and only cost about $14.00 dollars each. WAY! Less work then building wooden shelves. Ron G
  11. Yupp, I have two, one will be converted to a F6F-3 the other will be british. Ron G
  12. Thanks Scott Yeah when I was a kid (back in the stone age...lol) me and my brothers would campass the whole neighborhood on or bikes and fill up bags (the big briwn paper ones) three or four times with candy. We were sick for days...lol. It's not to bad, I'm already used to it, now it's time for all those extras...lol😎 Ron G
  13. Thanks everyone Actually my birthday is the 31st, but early presents are always cool...lol🎃 Ron G
  14. Hey Harv To bad we don't live closer, I'm in Michigan, we could go for a ride Ron G
  15. Hey all Thought I'd celebrate my 71st Birthday with a new 2021 Harley Davidson Tri-glide Ultra in vivid black. It's been about 7 years since I rode and the test ride was really different, you don't lean in the corners like a regular bike. It's definitely a different kinda animal...lol. because of my old weak knees and bum hip I can't ride a regular bike, but this rides like a dream. I pick it up tomorrow. Here's a picture of it. Ron g
