    'Grille' Ausf.H - Change of plans: Tarp

    Re: 'Grille' Ausf.H I haven't done anything in a while because I'm in my last year of school and things are starting to get difficult. I haven't lost interest in the Grille but there are also other models I want to build. Seeing as I can't justify buying another model without finishing this one...

    'Grille' Ausf.H - Change of plans: Tarp

    Hey everybody! After a couple of months spent in the basement experimenting around with my airbrush, I'm finally starting on my next project: DML's 15cm sIG33/1 auf Fgst. Pz.Kpfw.38(t) 'Grille' Ausf.H Sd.Kfz.138/1. I have also started a new forum-based website where I will post all of my...

    The Xwing Fighter

    Great progress Scott and don't feel bad about not having finished in time for the show. Had you decided to make some cutbacks on quality you would have felt miserable from this point on, like you said, 5 months of work for that would have been a waste. As for being not so experienced with the...

    Tamiya Paint

    Hey everyone, Elend: The reason it's not working well is because Tamiya acrylics aren't designed to be applied with a brush, just AB. I would recommend Vallejo acrylics for brush painting. As for the ratio: I thin my Tamiya acrylics either 1 part paint to 4 parts lacquer thinner for a general...

    The Xwing Fighter

    Baron's question was one that I actually wanted to ask to for some time now. I thought you had a band or something after I saw the bass in the attic (Ep. 120C)... I play bass to! You rock! But seriously, stop posting here and get to work! ;)

    The Xwing Fighter

    Well Red 3 seems like so much work, I hope you can pull it off until Saturday but it'll be tough! I would have suggested building one of those cannons that took down Porkins but it's best to just concentrate on what you've started. Great video... the to-do-list kind of made me freeze for a...

    The Xwing Fighter

    The base looks really good. Honestly, when I first saw it I was a bit skeptical of the result but with the primer on it it's really cool! Can't wait to see more! Is the AB thing finally sorted out?

    Take a tip from Calvin

    Awesome tutorial. It takes a lot of skill which sadly can only be achieved with practice. :-\

    King Tiger group build?

    As far as I know it was no longer applied after September 1944 because it was too time consuming and there were rumors of Zimmerit's flammability going around (not true). It's also interesting to note that Zimmerit was used to prevent magnetic mines from adhering to the surface of a tank...

    Yup, that's why I don't go to theaters anymore either, yet I still saw the movie. ;D

    Scratchbulding a Banshee (Wing Commander IV)

    Yeah, I was referring to the 3 wings but now that you mention it, it takes even more patience having to do it even 6 times! Hats off!

    German Tank References

    Here's a great site for basic information on most German WWII tanks and their variants: http://www.achtungpanzer.com/ This one also features valuable information on German armor and planes, as well as those of other countries: http://www.wwiivehicles.com/germany/default.asp

    Scratchbulding a Banshee (Wing Commander IV)

    That is a lot of progress. You did excellent work on the grids and I can imagine having to go through the same arduous process 3 times takes quite a lot of passion. Excellent work! Are you building all of this just from pictures or do you have more references?

    a few more

    Very cool, great job! Could we perhaps get a few bigger pictures, maybe of the nose art? ;D

    ... I take it that at least some of us will have journeyed out of our mothers' houses for once, to partake in the viewing of the new Star Trek film? If this be the case, what did thee think of this new talking picture? I for one have seen all of the old Trek films and a couple episodes of all...
