All great scores guys! I'm glad you had such a great Christmas.

None of my Christmas stuff has arrived yet and probably won't until next week (or later). I did go by the local Hobby Shop yesterday and ended up buying a kit I wanted but would have passed on if I couldn't have inspected it.



The review on it was horrible, but fortunately it looks like the reviewer either had one that was a test shot or had warped in transit. This one the parts look quit good, especially the fuselage which the reviewer had a really tough time with.

I also finally received the 3 magazines from Valiant Publishing. Mark with Valiant Wings Publishing resent them early in December as they had apparently been lost. I received them just before Christmas so it was nice and timely. Thanks again to Mark Peacock with Valiant Wings Publishing.





Happy New Years to everyone! May 2018 be a wonderful year for you!

A look see into the Roden kit will be nice and useful for those that read the review with bad conclusions.

Nice hauls folks! Paul, I'll have to pick up a copy of the Bv 141 book!

I bought these for myself,

I had read that a lot of reviewers were putting down this Walrus kit but it looks beautiful! certainly more detailed and easier to assemble than the CA kit.

I will try and do something with that here soon Saul. Will probably take the fuselage halves and wing parts clip them and fit them together as well. Always helps to "just see it". Have always liked the plane so it would have been real hard to resist anyway.

Nice score Paul! I'll be watching the O-2 with interest.

Sharkman, nice scores too. I should pick up a Walrus to go with my Stranraer that I built some years ago.

First, a closer look at the items I posted before from Blue Steel Resin. It turns out that they are extremely short run with only 10 copies made. Glad I got them from Juno Models.

No idea of the kit number on this one...


Best references to use are these from the Blue Steel Publications:


Soldering paste, I hope this works as it was delivered during a very cold spell:


Full interior kit which even includes the rounds stowed on the engine mount (yes, it is true) but strangely leaves out the transmission and squirrel cage fan!


Come to think of it, I don't have a modern German tank but I plan them for another country's crew...


Shermans with faces! I will ignore painting the red and use black instead on the Rice's Red Devils markings:


This is an excellent issue of SAFO with one of the best articles on the Super Entendard operations during the Falkands War:

Some interesting stuff you have there Saul.

Cold shouldn't bother the flux. We used to use solder paste (a mix of flux and micro solder pellets) When not in use it was recommended it be refrigerated. The stuff would age and eventually the solder would oxidize and no longer work. Your flux should be fine.

You get the paste from Digikey?
I told you photobucket sucks...

Some bits to support Sherman Campaign builds.



Read on a blog of a gentleman using Wisp brushes to apply streaking, so I picked up a couple while poking around a hobby store. They come in multiple sizes and styles, these were the only two they had left.

AOA Decals has announced a set of 1/32 O-2 decals for the kit. AOA Decals for more info.
