Munkyslut I just found a period A4 sized Matchbox kit catalog from the late 70's in my stash room!
14. December 2019, 11:30
Derek Huggett Munkyslut - I think I've still got one of the first ones (somewhere)!!!
14. December 2019, 11:38
Munkyslut I'm a sucker for the old catalogues, it's like bible class!
I got all the diecast catalogues from early 60's to early 80's, Tamiya catalogues, Monogram catalogues,
Dangerous though........... often leads to an eBay frenzy ;)
14. December 2019, 11:56
Derek Huggett The catalogues contained the dreams and aspirations of many a young modeller/collector, myself included (in my day they were carved on tablets! :) ). And so many thrown away (usually at parents insistence to 'tidy up')....yikes, I feel a 'wibble-wobble' moment coming on.....
14. December 2019, 12:08
Robert Espenschied @Chaz, if you like to get rid off the Voodoo, I would happily provide a new home for it... :)

@All, I started in the 70's and so only kits I could lay my hands on were Revell, Airfix and some Heller stuff. And the quality was mostly bad. Matchbox improved the situation quite a bit in the "low price segment". But my stockist had a lousy quantity to choose from...
14. December 2019, 18:18
Chaz Gordon Thanks for the offer, but I'm looking forward to seeing what adult me can do to make a good looking model out of it
14. December 2019, 22:50
Munkyslut I just like revisiting the buzz I got as a nasty infant dreaming of the latest Monogram or Revell 1/24th custom/hotrod offering
14. December 2019, 23:56
Chaz Gordon I'm surprised those old catalogs aren't available scanned online (I've looked). The Tamiya catalogs in particular were great reference material, their online catalog is a poor substitute.

scalemates Nice nice! (Ps: this should be a seaking project linked to a collection: "aircrafts kf the uss forestal"
13. April 2019, 08:23
Robert Espenschied Thanks... (what is the album for? I got your point with the project & collection)
13. April 2019, 19:53
Steven Van Dyck Robert, I'll tell you about an error you made on the sea king because I made it too myself. If you looked closely, you noticed perhaps that the inner wheels on both front wheel carriages are not touching the ground surface. At first I thought this was a kit error, but then I realized (maybe by looking at reference pictures) that I had erroneously removed part of the sponson fixing struts to be able to glue the sponsons against the hull. In the real helicopter, they have about 10cm spacing between the hull and them. When you put them apart again and add about 2mm of strut between, the carriage will touch on all 4 wheels. You only need to repaint the part that was behind the sponson, which is not so conspicuous.

This is how I repaired it:

12. March 2019, 13:26
Nathan Dempsey Very nice display. I really like the Cutlass. I'm curious about the carrier deck as well.
12. March 2019, 13:32
Robert Espenschied to make a long story short it was a lot of work...
...the first idea was to paint it by hand on wood panels, which I dismissed pretty quickly...
...then I was looking for a hi quality photo of the deck, no luck either...
finally I scanned the deck of an old 1/600 scale Airfix kit. The to scans I put together with a paint program and started to colorizing it. Then it was plotted on plastic foil...
