Not until November. I'm leaving town in October for several weeks and will lose a month of build time on my travels. Once I get back, I'll start my projects. The six month time span applies to me too.

Outstanding work, Stik!! So, with that Second Place Master Division trophy, does the family now call you "Master Stik"?

Thank you CB. I really like the Korean War aircraft. A mix of the old and new.

Once a year I think. But nothing else anymore. The hobby is dying in this state. There are others here, but they seem to be scattered. Oh, unless you're into trains! They still have clubs!

No kit collector shows or model swap meets up there? Or perhaps IPMS meetings? Those are always good sources down here for secondhand old kits.

I'm sure I'll find one eventually. I haven't used eBay in years but I'll probably set it back up eventually.

Until then, the continuous hunt around the south western half of Washington has turned up some fascinating results lol.

I'm really enjoying the thrill of the hunt lol!

Thanks Mike. Those Monogram MiG-15's are all over eBay. I'm surprised that Revell has not re issued it in many years. 

I still need to pose the Sabre with my other two Monogram Korean War birds, the F-80 and F9F.

Well today I paired up my recent F-86 build with a couple other R/M Korean War contemporaries, theIR same vintage MiG-15, and their more recent F-84E

Great looking p40! Definitely not too many pictures! No idea about new thread never heard a response to that question

 

Maybe once I get my PB stuff recovered... I only have about 11-12 years worth of photos to retrieve.... Too much on my plate to do it all at once.

in the meantime, let's just keep on keeping on here.

Be sure and signal when you start a new thread. I don't wanna get lost and hafta find my way back home!

Michael's had some great coupons this weekend, so we bought two P-47N kits. With some juggling the cost came out to be essentially two-for-one. One Jug will be P.R. ANG the other will probably be Hawaii ANG. I like discounts...

Thank you very much! No I haven't heard an answer to that yet either. Replacing all of those pictures in this thread is going to take a lot of time. Archiving this post and starting a new one wasn't a bad idea.

Very nicely done P-40 you have there - I like how you did the canopy and fuel caps.  

 

Thanks! That was the second one I built because the first one got stepped on lol.

Well if you ever want any help with figures I seem to be the guy to ask lol.

The last time I painted the pilot for that kit he turned out like this;

Just give me a PM and I will do what I can to help.  :)

 

 

 

 

Wow - that's a sharp looking pilot!  You are definitely the guy to consult on the subject - I may have to give painting figures another shot...

 

Figures can add an amazing sense of life and scale to any build. I will help as much as I can. :)

Yeah, speaking of that SBD, I mean A-24, I'm doing something I have never ever done. The cockpit on that old kit is less than sparse, I mean just an empty tub, that's all. Well, I'm actually painting the figures that will occupy the cockpit and fill up the empty tub. they won't look like Brindo's but after the canopy is glued on no one will really notice.

 

I've got the same kit in the stash too. I'm going to fix it up a bit, but I don't know how detailed I might get with it. I will probably include the figures as well.

When the time comes, Frank, I will not mind giving you some help as well. I've got all sorts of tricks and some great YouTube links to share. :)

All anyone has got to do is ask and I'll do my best to help out.  :D
