Andy: Thanks and it's been 21 years. Good grief we've been through it ALL.............literally. Sometimes I wonder how we've pulled it off. I used to wonder what married couples who have been together 20+ years were talking about when they said that. Now...................I know. lol

Jack: I'm assuming you'll be going with a 1/72 build?

MM, that's good to know about the 109 AZ kits - just might add one to the stash. 

As far as Revell's G-10 in 72nd is concerned, I've read a few things are off on that one:

- landing gear stance is a bit wide

- prop too small, spinner too big

regards,

Jack

 

 

Cheers for that info jack, i'll keep that in mind. Quickboost does a spinner for that kit, and the landing gear should be an easy fix.

Congrats Joe and PJ...that's awesome. Good to see marriages standing the test of time. Especially for someone like me and my wife who will be celebrating only our 4th anniversary this May.

Got a little bit of work done on the 190. Not much progress as this one has been sharing the bench with my first tank buildIndifferent Anyway I've got it all primed and was able to spray the RLM02 (Tamiya) and the RLM04 (MM Enamel). Here are a couple of pics...

Thanks for looking!

Time to do a little catching up. I have fallen behind a bit but have been able to do quite a bit the last couple of days.

On the resin pit for the Dragon kit, there some nice moulded detail on the side walls which i much prefer to the usual PE levers and such. I have had to thin the fuselage sides to fit the rear and front cockpit bulkheads.

Then with the wheel well fitted it was closed up. Still got a little cleaning up to do and then going to prep and paint the undercarrage doors and wheel bays before fitting wings and tail.

Hopefuly won't be so long until next time.

Man you guys are killin it with the 162's. Great work Matt, PJ and Bish!!!

Jack: Man it sounds like the 1/72nd Revell 109's have the same issues as the Hasegawa 1/48 one's do with the spinner too large and the prop too small.

Just joining the site. Since I'm currently in SW Asia, this is one of a couple of projects my wife sent out. Also, it will be an interesting build since I'm sort of 'limited" on the tools and accessories in my current location. :') I also have this one listed with the multi-engine GB, is this a conflict of interest...hmmmmm.

Here is a link to a picture hosting thread that does go into some detail on the process. 

http://cs.finescale.com/fsm/general_discussion/f/50/t/173733.aspx

Basically you have to copy a [IMG] link from where you host your photos and paste it into the reply here.  I use Photobucket, but it is getting harder and harder to use and is very buggy.  The thread above discusses many different sites as well.

Hope this helps.  Welcome to the site.

Dude that's some killer progress on that 162 Matt. I've seen alot of Lufwaffe patterns and schemes but I haven't seen this "git up" yet. I'm really liking this one that's for sure.

 Thanks for hookin' mawright up with the picture posting procedure. Yes

Thanks Matt. I'm working on adding some pics of the ME410 cockpit. What is photobucket, etc, and how do you access that? Tnx, Mike

Photobucket is a picture hosting site. There are others such as Flickr, image shack and so on. Unfortunatly you have to register on one of these, load your pics and then you can liunk them on here. Most modelling forums work this way. Its a bit of a hassle, but once you get used to it, its pretty easy.

Mike. Photobucket, Flickr etc....are photo hosting sites. You have to download pics from your camera/phone to these sites then upload them to the FSM site. Some of them are free to use others have a fee

Okay Guys,  I'm making my 1st attempt to add pics to my work, ME 410. Please adives any ideas/feedback you may have. My first time using an AB on a full build, just picked up an Iwata Neo. Any suggestions on a thorough cleaning method for such?

Mike

Mike. Cockpit looks great. You didn't mention if using enamels or acrylics. Enamels I use Home Depot bought lacquer thinner. Acrylics I use windex. Thorough cleaning unscrew the tip clean out inside. Take needle off and gently wipe down whole thing. Tip of needle is extremely fragile. I have the NEO too.

Tempesrjohnny, Thanks. I'm using MM and vallejo acrylics, only stuff my wife was able to send me. I've been having some issues I think with paint buildup within the AB, will work on getting more into the NEO and look for some Windex. Appreciate the note.
