  1. Thanks guys! @peter - I think wheels up was about the same on either, easier on the 1/48 because the wheel well door pieces are bigger. I had to file the edges down a little so they would fit but not a big deal. After that I just stuffed the wheel wells full of Plastic-Weld epoxy putty and put the doors right on top. It's not the cleanest, I had to re-do some panel lines and one of the doors on the front gear had popped out a little while the epoxy was hardening so it's totally uneven. Btw, your 1/72's in formation are really nice.
  2. I finally completed it. I didn't want to paint this one up in the traditional hero colors so I made this as a tribute to another hero of mine... my father. The squadron decals are of VF-124 "Gunfighters", the first one he was assigned to when he got stationed at Miramar back in the good ol' days. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics. Hope you like it, constructive criticism welcome.
  3. Great job on the landing gear doors!
  4. Great job on those fins!! Brings back memories of when I worked on mine.... and I remember it SUCKED!!
  5. Awesome so far. What shade of brown is that or did you follow the painting guide in the instructions?
  6. I've never had an issue with them. My only complaint (and I'm totally nit-picking here) is that shipping is on the pricey side.
  7. I think you got it - "capillary action".
  8. I use the Mr. Surfacer 1200 in a spray can, and just spray it like I would any other kind of primer. I'd use it all the time if it wasn't so expensive .
  9. Totally agree. There are a lot of pissed off people in that DX thread. Makes me happy to be a model builder and not a toy collector... makes my wallet happy too.
  10. Gotta love all those tiny NO STEP decals
  11. I don't think there's another aircraft (real world) past or present that I love more than the Tomcat!
  12. There was a petition for these a few years back but it looks like we didn't get the numbers Jasmine had wanted to start a run. I wonder why Jasmine stopped producing their VF-1 PE sets, IMO I think they look better than the one Hasegawa puts out, maybe they got in trouble
  13. That's pretty cool MT. Merry Christmas to you and to the whole MW community!
  14. I hope you're able find the time to do some building PeterB... chime in every now and then.
