This is a classic subject of our childhood John. Love it.
1950's Classic Rocketship "LUNA". The kit has only 9 parts, two of them clear for the two portholes. the fit was real nice and tight. It went together in only 10 minutes. The seam haves were so nice no putty was needed, just a small amount of very light sanding was done. I will give it a good wash and ready for paint.
Thanks Dieter, I am a big fan too.
I have completed the Moon base and now starting on painting the rocket. More photos soon
I have completed this Project. I had fun doing this rocketship. the silver paint is acrylic paint with 20% Future mixed in. There is a larger rocketship at 1:144 scale which I mite do later But for now project done
Thanks, Choppa Nutta
Nice little build, well done 👍

they always go for the landmarks
Mona & John G, Thanks. Space Aliens they are out there. The U.S. Navy has seen them.
I do believe that ( saw the footage made public ).I have a vintage X-Files tee shirt ,The Truth is Out there
Mona, Yes it is.
Great collection of airbrushes. I have collected quite a few recently and my current favorite are the Mr. Hobby Procon Boy Platinum 0.3 & 0.2. My airbrushing skills however, are still a work in progress.
Thanks, John. No new Airbrushes to report this pass year. I too am still trying to improve my skills, I guest we all are.
My local hobby shop sells the Grex line of airbrushes. Is the TG3 a double action brush? If so, how do you control the air and paint flow?
John, yes the Grex TG3 is a double action. The TG3 has a 0.3mm needle. You pull back a little at first for air, then more for paint. It's really simple to use and made in America.
Thanks for the information 👍

New Project up today. This is the old Monogram kit of the P-36A dating back to 1967. The kit is over 50 years old. It's an nice old kit. When you look at the parts they look silver but the plastic is not silver, there is a silver coating over the plastic. Glue and sanding will remove the silver coating. Also the plastic is very brittle. The kit decals still look good but I will have to test them first. I will be adding some details to the kit as it is very basic. Just getting started more photos up soon.
New photos up today. Airframe complete, starting prep work for paint. Will do a NMF on this project.
Looking great. Bringing back memories. That was the first kit I ever built.
JW, Thanks. It's a nice little kit.

So sad, a 1:1 scale dio of a man-cave and no pics😉
Yes I agree, Greg you need to post some photos of your Man Cave
Hey Greg, nice stud work. I hope you will have good ventilation for our airbrushing and lots of lighting.
hmm - nice drill
