Thanks Patrick. I'm back home in Canada now, but my shipment is still on its way, so no word on what paints survived. There's been a lot more work than I thought, getting the house back in shape after 7 years of renters, but I'm one bathroom project away from finishing the most dire of repairs. I'm also building a 1:1 scale diorama of a modelling man-cave in the basement. I'm about 80% done framing in the walls... ;)

So sad, a 1:1 scale dio of a man-cave and no pics ;)
26. August, 22:18
JOHN THOMAS
Yes I agree, Greg you need to post some photos of your Man Cave

Thanks Tim and Bob, it's a nice little kit. I lose the build photos. The kit is from Dragon with some nice details in the cockpit and aft compartment.

Tom ...
Excellent build, John. It's loaded up to the gills!
10. February, 22:22
Greg Baker
Great work John, as always. It's funny, for the first time I understand why a lot of people ask about putting figures into my Tintin builds. It does seem like that would be a nice addition, even if it is a bit understandably hard to manage in this scale.
10. February, 22:28
JOHN THOMAS
Thanks Greg, I would have like to have added figures if I could fine some nice ones. All of the ones I have are just horrible. I liked the way the SAS Jeep turned out. It's the first time I used Pigments in a project and I may be doing more Armor in the future.

Looks great I like these Academy ground vehicles, not seen this particular one.

Thanks Tom, it's the standard Academy jeep kit that I modify a little

JOHN THOMAS
I needed to make some bases for a contest I was entering. I like to give some context to the models that I build, so I did a little demo on how I make simple wood bases.
30. March 2018, 12:51
Patrick Hagelstein
Wow! Those look really cool! And by the looks of it, they seem simple to produce. I like it!
30. March 2018, 12:54
JOHN THOMAS
Yes Patrick, the bases took less than a day to make and you can make as many as you like. The photo coping of the Verlinden's cards makes it a very simple way to make a base. I do think they also make them in 1:48 scale. I have not done any Snow, Dirt, sand or Mud but will add them whem I need them

Gursel Kona
Nice and simple. I like it.

I have added my SAS JEEP base to this album. This base is for Dirt and Sand. Just need to do some Snow and Mud.

Each time I see "No" for the scale of the various TRON kits I find myself wanting to do the math and calculate an actual scale, 1:100000000000000.....or something. :)
26. January, 15:22
JD
Here's a thought, I've used glow in the dark as well as neon fluorescent paint lit with a black light to great effect, sorry no pics to back it up 8)

Mike,JD, OK great

New photos up today. Started painted using my new H&S Infinity 2&1. I used the .2mm needle spraying Model Master Acrylic at 20psi

Nathan Dempsey
Nice progress John. Can't wait to see more.
23. December 2019, 13:10
JOHN THOMAS
New photos up today. I finished the main painting of the airframe and started detail painting and painting of the small bits
23. December 2019, 13:11
JOHN THOMAS
Roland, Thanks. The quality of the kit is OK. It's not as detailed as the Hasegawa's A-4 and it does take some care to get good results. So far the fit of the kit is fine. I am now just getting in to the small bits and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

Hey Christian, Thanks. Urban I am getting ready to brake in the Infinity. I am planing on using it on my A-4 projects. I will post a few photos soon.

Nice mate, will be nice to follow. Just ask if there's something that you wonder over!

Patrick, Thanks, so far so good. I have only used it for about 1 hour, so far and I really do like it.

I love the way Harder & Steenbeck designes and manufactures their airbrushes.
13. December 2019, 13:10

Patrick, I agree. I am using the .2mm needle and spraying Model Master Acrylic
Paint at 20psi with a drop of thinner

Hans Thanks, I do have the special hobby 1/48 TA-4 two seater in my stash but for now I want do the Combat A-4s first.
3. December 2019, 01:15
JOHN THOMAS
Sorry guys, not Special Hobby but Hasegawa does make a TA-4J two seater in 1/48 scale all so Classic Airframe made one . Some TA-4F/Js did do forward air control (FAC) in a combat rule so I will add this to the list and the over all project.

I have found an old Monogram OA-4M and Hasegawa TA-4J. New photos up today
7. December 2019, 15:36

Hans, Thanks. I am all ways on the hunt for A-4 Skyhawks
7. December 2019, 16:28
JOHN THOMAS
Hans Thanks, I am all ways on the hunt for A-4 Skyhawks. I like your A-4 build, nice camo work as well. My work on the A-4B project continues. New photos up today.
7. December 2019, 16:31
Patrick Hagelstein
Cool to see how much more of a combat plane the OA-4M is compared to the TA-4J when you compare the boxarts of the Monogram and Hasegawa kits.
7. December 2019, 17:02
Carlos Cisneros
Those are decent Scooter kits. They cover the single seat family pretty well. The cockpit needs help though...
7. December 2019, 17:16
JOHN THOMAS
Patrick and Carlos, Thanks Patrick the OA-4M was design as a pure combat aircraft, the TA-4F/J was mainly designed as a fleet trainner that could do some combat rolls like FAC. Carlos the kit cockpit is basic and not very accurate but when painted up and installed it does not look to bad
