Bart Goesaert Just an idea so far... so pls hold the horses ;)
17. July at 12:26:27
Maciej Bellos I bet Chuck is the only one that can open the kit, throw in the glue and some bottles of paint, close the box, shake it and get a top notch finished model that sweeps all the intergalactic competitions...
17. July at 13:24:52
Francky you mean he has to open the kit? He can't just scream the parts into the right position?
17. July at 13:37:50
Martin o He just roundhouse kicks the sealed box and a perfectly built and painted model flies out and lands on a top 1 spot in a competition.
17. July at 13:50:37
Maciej Bellos Well he can imagine how the model will come out of the box, but that's lazy, so he opens the box :D
17. July at 13:54:41
Kerry Cox As a model. I think that this is one of the most interesting one I have ever seen. :)
We have at our disposal, the most diverse and varied subject matter know to man that we can build. !
But to have one of the most devastating weapon system available today as a kit to build is just plain awesome. !
I will be mounting mine on a plinth that looks just like the mount it is on, on board the ship.
When I posted it on the Tamiya Magazine facebook page, it was less than 8 hours I had over 180 people either like or comment but most asked where can they get it.
I have never been asked that about any model I have built before, and I am sure that just about every modeller today will eventually get it.
17. July at 15:36:09
Kerry Cox Helmut. The 'Chuck Norris ' decal comes with the kit.
Also, a little birds beak with big round eyes decals, for those who like the minno character. :) :) :)
17. July at 15:38:58
Kerry Cox Enough thanks.

Kerry Cox Hans, a great solution for the static electricity discharge wicks for sure, as I used fishing line but it always had a curve to it. ;)
Thanks for all the comments and watching from the bleachers lads. It certainly helps. :)
BTW, the humbrol dark green colour I have used, (The required stipulated one) seems awfully dark and not as I remember seeing all the other.....
Maybe the sun had something to do with it. ? !
15. July at 02:06:14
Peter Hardy Kerry, some viagra rubbed into the fishing line stiffens it.
15. July at 02:37:22
Donald Dickson II OK, that went downhill fast. LMAO
15. July at 02:49:27
Kerry Cox I didn't know Viagra came in a 'rub it in' formula. ! hahahahahaha
15. July at 03:51:51
Tim Heimer I don't even want to ask how he knows this! LOL
15. July at 04:06:54
Slavo Hazucha Sounds like a solution, but you have to time it well, applying just before the jury comes to see your model :D
15. July at 05:04:28
Bart Goesaert All I heard is that you have to swallow them fast, ior you'll have a stiff neck...
15. July at 08:50:08

James C It was this build that convinced me to get the Hobby Boss 1/48 F-111 kit
27. June at 20:56:23
Kerry Cox I am pleased I did a fair job with it otherwise no one would have considered the Hobby Boss kit at all.
27. June at 21:06:29
Augie I love the hobby boss kit, Just not got to building yet.
27. June at 21:22:09
Kerry Cox Augie, you will be blown away when you see the most finite detail that all their kits come with, especially the rivets and surface details.
Have you bought any yet or have your eye on one. ? let me know.
27. June at 22:05:23
Slavo Hazucha Thanks for bringing this to my attention Kerry! The HB kit surely looks decent enough, details, lines & rivets a joy to work with... But it is the builder who has to show on no uncertain terms where the journey will go and you handled that business with flying colors! Will surely come back to you when I get to start building mine.
27. June at 22:09:40
Augie hey kezza, I have two and looking at another lol
27. June at 22:16:08
Clifford Keesler I will get one someday when I'm rich. LOL. Meanwhile I will keep grinding out the Acadmey monsters. Have 2 FB-111A's. I am going to do one in the "Dark Vark" scheme and the other in SEA camo.
28. June at 00:03:36
Kerry Cox The secret to the SEA cammo is blue tack putty. So good for compound curves.

Augie I'm in, been looking for excuse to get fb-111 on
4. July at 12:14:54
Slavo Hazucha Looks like we are going to build a significant portion of the RAAF´s former complement! :)

Welcome aboard, did not even take so much work to convince you to join this in the end :) I will sort the PE order today, no worries! If you need some more exotic tuning gear, check also Nathan´s posts up here, he seems to be very much up to speed with what´s available.
4. July at 12:22:48
Nathan Dempsey I just have a huge cheat sheet in my Academy EF-111A and F-111F kits with research I did years ago. Oh another thing on the HB kit. I dont know if they corrected it, but the exhaust nozzles have the wrong number of support "bumps". That kit has 5 and it should be 6. Both Academy and HB kits have flaws, but both can make decent kits. I've heard of people combining them...
4. July at 13:43:21
Palo M Thanks Nathan! I don't think I'll get both to build one correctly but thanks for the hint with the nozzles. Any other useful info is welcome!
4. July at 17:51:41
Kerry Cox It's just a model in a box. Lots of fun and simple.
4. July at 21:00:47
Slavo Hazucha Model in a box is on it´s way to my desk... I´ll open it, count the rivets twice and we´ll take it from there - questions will be asked afterwards ;)
5. July at 08:41:46
Kerry Cox The glaring thing about this kit is the fuel dump nozzle. Totally wrong, but the Boneyard images have that covered. ;)
5. July at 09:29:13
Nathan Dempsey Can't wait to see the build Slavo.

Another good thing Kerry's images show is the exhausts when parked. Note how one is open and one is closed much like on the F-14.

Christian W This is great! I'll Keep it in mind. Got that stuff from a freind but never used it.
28. June at 09:21:46
Derek Huggett Finally succumbed myself Kerry - easy to find on evilBay among all the other surgical supplies. Saw some rubber tubing also advertised, which bought back all the old nightmares....AAARRGGHH, Nurse...Not the rubber tubing again...pleeeze!!! :)
28. June at 10:13:24
Kerry Cox To think that Parrafilm started off being used in the horticultural business, being a wrapper for cuttings when spliced into other plants. ! Then pathology grabbed it for use in labs to seal glass tubes and the like, but now, more modellers use it than any one else. !!!! FACT. :)
28. June at 10:56:37
Derek Huggett Likewise, a certain floor shine liquid that is now 'the modellers friend' (Klear)! What an inventive/innovative bunch we are! 8)
28. June at 12:21:48
Spanjaard Well, we gad yo do wit what was at hand, Boeing that floor polish, foid wrapping, electrical cables.....
28. June at 19:07:19
Christian W The modellers are quite good inventors :D Or are they just practical? Creative. They are creative.
28. June at 19:51:26
Kerry Cox All of the above me thinks. :) Adaptation of so many things that really had no basis in modelling, like the simple little piece of plastic that goes on the bread wrapper/bag. ! How many times has that humble little square helped me out of a jam. :) :) :)

12. August 2018 at 04:37:53
Kerry Cox Duo Finito. !
14. August 2018 at 21:54:09
Peter Hardy Too much time in Latin classes Kez. Nice job on the duo though. Love the body paint!
14. August 2018 at 22:03:22
Spanjaard both fantastic Kerry
14. August 2018 at 22:31:13
Michael Hickey WoW, you've done a superb job on both these Stallions, you should be very pleased to have these in your collection and I am sure their going to turn heads at the QMHE.
14. August 2018 at 23:38:46
Kerry Cox Gents. :) Thank you so much for your wonderful comments and hopes for the comp. I am happy, though I can still see faults with some aspects. But that's our nature yeah. ? :)
15. August 2018 at 01:24:46
Christian W Great built! The Dashboard Looks good with the "glas" on it. I used to use "weißleim" (PVA glue?). It dries clear but the survace is concave.
28. June at 09:24:32
Kerry Cox The 'clear' is also called 'clear fix', made by humbrol, but dries badly, loosing that nice smooth surface. But thank you for the . :)

Every model I have ordered from them arrives well packed and in the factory cladding. But make sure you get it by paying for 'tracking'. Good souls mate. :)
25. June at 13:01:40 Share
Holger Kranich Very good to hear that, Kezza! I´m curious how Long it will take till i hold it in my Hands. :) And it is a bargain! Just 27€ plus shipping. Way cool, thanks for the hint Buddy! 8)
25. June at 13:11:42
Kerry Cox Remember this and your understanding of why it will take as long as it takes to get to you is because, the Hong Kong international airport handles more than you can imagine, and all done with 'bar code'. and.................. Youtube Video

25. June at 13:30:37
Holger Kranich Oh my gosh, what a big terminal! LOL :D
25. June at 13:50:43
Kerry Cox After all Holger. China is one of the biggest manufacturing economies in the world. In fact, all kits we buy, Tamiya and most others are made in China under licence.

Kerry Cox This post was the response to Holgers question to me of my dealings with any model supply companies in China and why it may take a bit longer than usual to receive anything you may purchase from there. A general knowledge thing I guess. :) :)

24. June at 19:01:56
Munkyslut Kerry good choice mate, luv a boxer twin, I got an 09 HP2Sport & a couple of S1000RR's to abuse Britain on :)
24. June at 19:29:23
Kim Branders Nice details Kerry.
24. June at 19:32:22
Kerry Cox Primate troll ( ;) ) I am giving it away now, as it is too big and I am 73 and find it hard to man handle it around the city, and that is why I love touring, dodging the roos, camels, stray cattle and goats. hahahahahaha
24. June at 19:51:52
Kerry Cox Your all so kind and supportive. Thank to all for your support. It makes it so worthwhile.
24. June at 19:52:56
Slavo Hazucha I've been watching this for some time but kept my mouth shut/keyboard locked, because I seriously lack in the "knowing anything about bikes" department... The amount of details to look at is just staggering, I particularly (but not exclusively) admire the transparent hoses...
24. June at 20:27:27
Daniel Klink This Bike is so damn cool... 250cc on 6 cyl...
Must be a joyride on this indeed
It is a real shame that my uncle did not keep his '70 Trident T150 :(
24. June at 20:43:13
Kerry Cox Daniel, there are two bikes that give me goose bumps when I hear them. Those being the Triumph and BSA triples of the 70/80's and of course, the six cylinder Rc-166.

Kerry Cox Munkeymoll, from what I can gather from a "Google" search, this is one of the very first of, and many others like it, that Bandai put out for 'Entex', a yank company in California in the mid 70's. !
And as Packard only stopped making the actual car in 1962, it is still quite a popular car for those who collect the real thing. :)
I will post close up images of the parts when I crack the sealed bags it comes in, as I don't want to do that until the actual build takes place.
So until then, I will be pouring over the instructions and bag contents getting a good idea and plan of attack.
There are heaps of images of the real beast on 'Images'. so reference imagery is readily available.

Augie, I will look for a set of the handles you describe. :) But don't worry, I am a most cautious and considerate driver. ;)

And Mr Greathouse, I am pleased your along for the ride too. :)
21. May at 00:11:34
Thomas Bischoff this will be fun to watch and I think there's still a seat left? After all it's a big car :)
21. May at 19:02:22
Kerry Cox A 'joy ride' like no other you have had Thomas. ;) hehehehehe
21. May at 21:21:56
Munkyslut Remember the Ant Hill Mob from the Whacky Races???
21. May at 21:32:05
Kerry Cox The animated ones. ?
22. May at 03:16:26
Munkyslut Yeah that's the one! This Packard reminds me of their huge black gangster ride
22. May at 03:58:25

I have just deleted the P-51D album, as it was totally destroyed by my knocking over an open container of Acetone all over the parts I had on my table ready for final assembly, totally wrecking all surfaces, all unrecoverable.
No lessons learned here. Just stupidity.
Cheers. :(

Greg Baker I dunno... I think you should've just said it was a "Salvador Dali surrealist impression of a P-51D" and elevated all of us with a little bit more culture and class through art... I would've believed you. :D
2. May at 05:29:40
Kerry Cox I think I take things a little less seriously as Salvadore, though I do like his works. ! :-O
But right now, I am in a good place, having some older kits I can go looking for spares in.
2. May at 05:42:37
Matthew A I had a similar experience involving an open shed door, a cat, Acetone, and an Airfix Super Mystere that I had spent days on fixing the length (it's missing a bit right thru the tail /bum, plus a little near the nose). I did learn a lesson and bought a new/old Super Mystere plus one of these
2. May at 10:13:53
Michael Hickey @Matthew, ROTFLMAO. :D
2. May at 12:03:20
2. May at 12:37:05
Kerry Cox :) :) :) :) That makes me feel a whole lot better Mathew.
Cheers my friend. hahahahahahahahahaha
2. May at 15:21:04
Matthew A I must point out I butchered the kit not the cat. And I know it's a powerful water pistol but don't Persians already have flat faces?
2. May at 16:25:15
Kerry Cox Persian cats have flat faces that get flatter every day because they never learn to slow down when coming through the 'cat doors' at full pace. :)

Hey Kerry, where do you purchase this MEK product? I'm currently using Tamiya Liquid Cement and am looking for a cheaper alternative. I also use something like Holly use's to apply it with, I use a thin glass pipette with a rubber squeezy thing to suck the liquid up and to release the cement. Like a child's medicine applicator.

Cheers, Mike.

14. April at 14:56:28
Nathan Dempsey I only wanted to show folks I actually learned something from watching the Simpsons. This particular lesson came in handy while in the fire prevention industry.
14. April at 15:31:03
15. April at 00:38:25
Michael Hickey I used this MEK stuff this morning to glue the pylons/engine pods onto my B-58 and it works just like Kerry says. Some of it run across the underwing to the next pylon because I had put a tad to much on, so I thought I'd lightly touch it to see the result and it was already dry. It didn't leave any finger prints on the surface what so ever, I have now found my new liquid glue. And another thing Kerry was right about it does smell quite a lot so I'm glad I'm working right in front of my open window. :D :D :D
15. April at 02:19:06
Donald Dickson II Then I will likely not mess with it as I am in the basement. Not a ton of ventilation there.
15. April at 03:02:44
Kerry Cox Michael. What I just read gave me goose bumps. ! hehehehe :)
If any 'surface damage' happens from any over flow like what happened Mike, the mark left behind can easily be removed with either a sharp scalpel or the finest of sand paper, and there is no penetration like there is with the Tamiya glue, making MEK the easiest of glues to use.
Donald, I would would be worried if there was an open container in a tin can without a lid in your basement, but using it from an old Tamiya liquid glue bottle would pose no heath hazard what so ever.
I am pleased your liking what you got Michael. ;)
15. April at 05:19:29
Holger Kranich Cool that you like it, Mike! Ok it smells not as good as TTC but it works mighty fine! :)
15. April at 06:42:27
Michael Hickey Yes the smell was strong, but then again I was working from the original bottle. I'm sure when I decant some into a smaller bottle it won't smell as strong. :)

2. April at 06:13:36

2. April at 08:28:27
Holger Kranich The burnt tail looks astonishing! I personally had added more blue but the reference shows that you did it right!
2. April at 09:13:20
Kerry Cox Holger, your words are a comfort to me mate. Having had some doubts after the second attempt at getting something I was content with. ;)
That is the beauty of acrylics. Being able to remove the paint with a wipe of a spirits ladened cloth and try again.
It was a process of building up layer on layer at a low air pressure setting and really diluted paint that was able to dry almost instantaneously and no 'pooling'.
With the AB tip no more that a couple of MM away from the surface.
So much fun and satisfaction when things 'go right'. hehehehehe

Bart Goesaert it's the same story everywhere. Here we have a very talented club, and some members place the club-logo on their models. In my opinion, these should be banned because they are influencing the judges... willing or not...and yeah, sometimes not the best model wins... a friend of mine took part in a modelcontest with the masters an didn't get a medal in his category... so ok nothing happened, next competition, the same club gives him a special award and comes by to ask him wether he wants to compete with his model on their show... some duhhh-moment...
29. June 2015 at 09:48:09
Kerry Cox For years, it was the same guys winning with crap and the effect was that the comp table thinned out to just two or three clubs.
Now there is change and a different selection system, the numbers have improved.
29. June 2015 at 09:56:15
Tim Heimer I love your work on these mate! Just need a few more pilots to finish it up.
18. March 2017 at 14:12:37
Kerry Cox Timothy, Thanks for your looking in on "Blondie" mate. :)
I have got these in my display case with the pilot and his parachute hanging off his arse and he really looks a treat. .
These were my first and only effort with the bare metal foil, as it drove me nutts with all the curves I had to work out without taring great holes in the work. :(
The judging when I placed these was all club based and outsiders didn't get a look in, but that's all finished now with the new and fairer selection of judges. :)
Cheers Timothy and thanks again. :)
18. March 2017 at 14:34:20
Tim Heimer Funny I was thinking ..what a pain it had to be foiling that! But it looks good!! As well as the other birds. Keep up the good work mate, Cheers from up north! LOL
19. March 2017 at 01:50:08
Kerry Cox Timothy. :)
"Up north" eh.? lol
I attempted a 1/32 Hasegawa 'Starfighter' F-104 with the foil, but even though it had cleaner lines, it was more difficult as there were so few single panels to deal with. So it's now keeping the silverfish company in my stash recess. :-/
Right now I am in the processes of screwing up a Dragon Sd.Kfz.251 C, turning it into an "A" but I should have looked before I leaped into all the dramas. :(
But I do persist. :)

19. March 2017 at 03:35:37
Katya Hodgson That's just stunning... I could never manage anything like this...
15. February at 21:13:45

8. February at 15:03:12
Kerry Cox Lads and Lassies. I guess that this is all part of the joy of why we do and what we do. Fumbles and masterpieces. :) But, there is always the one yet to be built that will have all the right things in all the right places. hehehehe :) Meanwhile, I grin and bare it.
Augie, all that PE was half the reason I went for the water line, as I have always wanted to try my hand at 'makin' water'. ;)

Kerry Cox MM. I am lead to believe that the different colors used on the turret tops was for identification when in battle group configuration/formation. Also, as an indication to all pilots that they were 'friendlies'. :) https://forum.worldofwarship..ret-colors-arent-historical/

Kerry Cox Lode. Your a most kind man with your compliments and praise. :)
I feel quite humbled that you hold me in such good standing. :)
It must be the engineer in me that is always looking for the easiest way to solve problems, and with plastic kits, it's not an exact science, but it certainly keeps my grey matter busy.
15. January at 10:53:54
Lode Schildermans That's engineering, Kerry. As an engineer, I think the same way
15. January at 14:22:02
Kerry Cox Lode. That is so true. :)
I have always had this thing where, if I can fix something...............anything, my day is complete. :) hahahaha
15. January at 19:21:53
Es-haq Khosravi Great job Kerry! I'm watching!
15. January at 20:37:29
Miro Herold Good sanding work
18. January at 10:31:29
Kerry Cox I am just hope full that the chrome BMF will stay in place. :)
18. January at 11:24:18
Bryn Crandell Watching this one. Seems as if this kit needs some surgery to get it to fit right. Your challenges are felt amoungst us all. Looks like its coming together though.
18. January at 16:32:27
Kerry Cox Academy do make good models, but EVERY one I have done has had major fit issues, especially the F-4 Phantom. Grrrrrrr
The bulk of the Academy molds seem to be old Revel pressings.
Just like Italeri using old Tamiya molds.

I am taking an overdue break from Scalemates and modelling in general for a while, as all I seem to have been doing lately is nothing but be a scale modeller and very little else.
I am sure all of you will understand.
Kerry. aka, Red Roo.

19. November 2018 at 20:32:15
Lode Schildermans Strenght, mate. As I think I may say, the whole bunch is supporting you
19. November 2018 at 22:42:46
Kerry Cox I am most grateful for all the support my friends. :)

@Kezza, take good care of yourself mate. i do actually have a collection of stuff from old electronics too :D

Wim van der Luijt I use a slightly different method of extracting the parts, it's called "brute force" and involves repeated blows with a hammer :D

Daniel Klink Hope you wear glasses when you do this Wim ;)
9. December 2018 at 11:31:52
Lode Schildermans I find this a very good way to recover model build material, but my neighbours are complaining now that they can't listen to CD's anymore
9. December 2018 at 20:06:29
Martin Oostrom Your neighbours needed your cd-player to listen to cd's? You really are a generous person ;)

Kerry, glad to see you're still cruising along

Martin Oostrom@Kerry Cox
Kerry, master of all things plastic. Once more I have a question for thee.
I’ve got a Toyota rally car in white plastic. It will be done in a white with red/green decals version. The plastic is perfectly white, no flow marks etc. Do I need to paint it, or can I get away with a thorough polishing and a varnish when done? Or do I need to paint it white to avoid yellowing of the plastic after a few years?
6. October 2018 at 13:20:29 Share
Wim van der Luijt Since this is an public message I'll put my two cents in too. IMHO you need to protect the plastic from the influence of UV light. Paint is in order.......
6. October 2018 at 13:23:53
Martin Oostrom This is exactly why I made a public post 8)
Thanks for your reply Wim, much appreciated.
6. October 2018 at 14:37:43
Kerry Cox Good morning, how are you mate. ?
I hope I can answer your question on the white bare plastic.
It is possible to polish up any plastic to a sheen that is equal to what a top paint job looks like, but as to the uv effects, Peter and I suggest the you keep it in q dark room. :)
Other than that cryptic comment, I would follow Wim's lead and give it a lick of paint. ;)
6. October 2018 at 20:42:37
Martin Oostrom So, no cutting corners with painting then. Thanks guys.
Feeling very tired at the moment due to some family affairs. I will keep you posted, but via pm ;)

Rene Scheiblich Sooo... You basically rent a car paintshop to paint those monsters? :D
29. August 2018 at 18:28:15
Spanjaard it is good that those beauties take a while to be built.... takes a bit longer to run out of space!
29. August 2018 at 20:10:39
Lode Schildermans Not to mention the HMS Hood after the Rodney. A monster of 132 cm :)
29. August 2018 at 21:31:50
Spanjaard holy m.... :)
29. August 2018 at 22:09:02
Lode Schildermans Yep, Rodney was a gift from Mrs Schildermans and also my Nemesis
29. August 2018 at 22:15:38
Donald Dickson II OK, there were some SERIOUS injustices perpetrated on some folks there. I am surprised some judges werent strung up. I find it absolutely insane that anything like club affiliation is shown. That is not the appearance of bias, it 100% IS bias. I have plenty of issues with judges here at IPMS shows, but they seem like a right bunch of fair guys compared to what I am seeing there.
29. August 2018 at 22:31:30
Kerry Cox Yes Donald, it was a bit distressing for some and much was said at the awards by those who stayed to watch them handed out.
29. August 2018 at 22:39:31
Miro Herold The drowned Reisen is the best present for me. Very good at all.

30. August 2018 at 20:44:18
Peter Hardy Did you say something Kez? Sorry Mate, I was just engrossed in what you would post this morning on your Arizona thread.
30. August 2018 at 20:55:52
Kerry Cox My post seems to have been hi jacked. !:-/

Peter Hardy Take your point Kerry. Too uniform? They look VERY closely replicated!

20. August 2018 at 02:46:40
Peter Hardy But that's just me.
20. August 2018 at 02:59:44
Kerry Cox But what won was just a pile of junk with no story at all to be seen. But hey. That's just me too. ;)
20. August 2018 at 05:25:08
Bart Goesaert nice project as always, just stumbled over it... a bit harsh to cover the vehicle with the hay, but as you stated, it tells a story... and that you don't see that often...
20. August 2018 at 10:38:23
Kerry Cox Bart, that was exactly my thinking at the time. And when I came across the image of all the officers sitting around a vehicle with sheaves of wheat all over it, my imagination went wild, thinking of how I could replicate that story, having never seen anything about that aspect of the push onto the Russian Steeps, but I did get a lot of comments about the dio, mainly about, "I didn't know the Germans did THAT." type of thing. :)
