Re: How to make sandbags?

I had good luck with milput putty on my Sherman project: http://www.warbird-photos.com/gpxd/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=13747&hilit=suzy+Q just made the basic shape, pressed it into some fabric to print on it some "fabric" texture, made a seam with a clay shaping tool, and baked.

Re: 1/18 Dauntless displayed at the Museum

Very nice display! ....and agree that the Merit Dauntless is the superior example in 1/18 prop driven, thus far.

Re: anyone ever removed the engine from a 21c Tiger?

Ok, I will try and fit the tiger engine into the Panther tonight...the panther is all apart and seems like a good project to try while I wait on some parts and Pickelhaube's skirts to arrive.

Re: New Merit 1/18 DAUNTLESS DISCUSSION

Quite a nice testimonial to Merit and their Midway Dauntless from Mr. John Mollison, who has an actual piece of airplane fabric from an SBD Dauntless dive bomber that is recorded to have been present at Pearl Harbor, the battle at Midway and later, a Naval training squadron at Lake Michigan. (2-B-2)...

Re: New Merit 1/18 DAUNTLESS DISCUSSION

"VB-6 gave up our old SBD-2s after returning from the Doolittle mission at the end of April, 1942. We received brand-new SBD-3s that were as close to “factory new” as could be (with having been shipped from California to Hawaii). They were the cleanest airplanes I ever saw in the Navy.” Richard H.

Re: New Merit 1/18 DAUNTLESS DISCUSSION

Has anyone else noticed that the clear plastic shipping tray for the Merit Dauntless has packaging blisters for the Westinghouse radar antennas under each wing? Is the S-3 version going to be a SBD-5? …Maybe VMSB-231 "Ace of Spades"? ….Jim? :shock:

Re: New Merit 1/18 DAUNTLESS DISCUSSION

Just received my Midway Dauntless from Aikens Airplanes, and concur with Tman, it is just as well executed in “fit and finish” as the Coral Sea version. This really is one great looking and historically significant aircraft Merit chose to produce…Great job Merit, another homerun!

Re: BIG NEWS! BBI will be issuing a repaint of the 1/32 F-4

I really was hoping for “SHOWTIME 100” but this livery is starting to grow on me. Will probably get it, I just dig Phantoms.

I feel for what you get quality and detail wise from BBI the price of $99.00 is right in the ball park...but, I hate to say this because I want to support BBI for their effort and really wanted to pick up a 1/32 Phantom... not in this livery…display space in my house is very limited and for me, any ...

Re: Tiger I "Hildegard"

Thanks all for the kind reviews
Here is one last shot…when I was trying to match the camo pattern from the picture of “Hildegard” I made a 1/16 scale cut out of one of the crew and used him to help match the pattern…goofy idea but it worked.
