Has anyone attempted to build a civilian OV-10 Bronco? CalFire out here flies them and I have found a set of decals, and I have a Trumpeter kit. The only difficult part will be removing the weapons station that is under the main fuselage. Any suggestions?

Steve Hays Ready for sanding and paint and details. After a bit of cutting, super glue and clamping, it turned out okay.

Daniel Looking good! I'm sitting
31. March at 14:32:02
Daniel Pukin' Dogs, yeah love the shading on that rhino! What I noticed - the parts you painted silver on the JDAMs should be the same grey as the AA-Stuff
6. April at 18:38:16
Steve Hays Daniel, I was looking for info on the JDAM, and replicated a steel one. Unfortunately, when I hit it with the matte, it got darker.

Steve Hays This kit has a ton of flash. It reminds me of building kits as a kid in the 80's...
10. April at 15:18:59
Soeren . It is a short run kit from a small company - what did you expect?!
10. April at 15:24:48
Steve Hays Don't know. Never built one of their kits before.
10. April at 15:58:33
Steve Hays Soren, I can't make this up. Look how warped these pieces are. Wow... Time to figure out how to send that back to where it belongs.
11. April at 00:05:24
Steve Hays Look how warped these pieces are... Oof.
11. April at 00:49:51
Steve Hays I found a website that talks about how to straighten warps with got water... Woo Hoo! Wish me luck!

Does anyone else have experience dealing with kitlinx.com? I have ordered from them twice and have had to send them an email asking them to ship my order. They seem to be very slow in processing orders and getting them shipped. I'm interested in this. To the moderators, I think it would be helpful if we could leave reviews of the different online retailers here to help others with their purchasing decisions.
28. March at 17:36:49 Share
Steve Hays A follow up on Kitlinx. Both orders I've placed with them, they have listed a product as "in stock" but then have to order it from the supplier. Then, I wait to get the part reshipped to me. I'll be doing a better job searching around for a better supplier next time I need detail kits. I'll be avoiding Kitlinx as much as possible.

Hello everyone. I found this adhesive suggested as an idea for times that you would need to use superglue with an accelerant. I bought mine at Home Depot (a hardware store in America) for $11. It's fantastic! It's the same technology that orthodontists use to adhere braces to their patient's teeth. I can not recommend this enough. The brand I bought was called FiberFix.

Łukasz Gliński Agree, following
8. February at 11:37:54
Steve Hays Well, I completely screwed this model up. I put a wash of turpentine and oil paint to draw out the lines. It crazed and ate the Future floor wax. I need to be using something tougher to protect against the turpentine, or using something less aggressive.
18. February at 23:52:20
Łukasz Gliński Sad news, are you going to start another one?
19. February at 08:19:41
Steve Hays Yeah, I'll be putting up the next one. 1/48 F/A-18E Super Hornet. I'm making it for my boss who was an engineer that worked on this aircraft during the upgrades. He specifically was responsible for the new intakes and the larger vertical stabilizers.

Steve Hays I use flat black auto primer for all of my painting to add shadows and begin to get panel lines showing. I found a good online walk around for this aircraft at this website www.cybermodeler.com/aircraft/do335/do335_walk.shtml

Bought this in a local hobby store on a whim. I like the easy fuselage and wing pieces! The lines are crisp and look accurate. It's been a great start so far.

I was looking for a decal set for a specific Douglas Invader that was used as a fire retardant tanker. Found a company that will print decals and already had a set, exactly what i was looking for. Www.shopdrawdecal.com

I'll keep everyone up to date as to how the quality is.
