Re: Who would want a 1/16 He-219? (pics fixed)

A month or so ago there was a post on here with the title a "nice model". It showed an eBay listing of a 1/16th he-219 owl that someone had built and was selling for pickup only out of Canton Ohio. I purchased it and then slowly talked the seller who had no idea what they had into shipping it to me....

How many of you can/will build a 1/18 resin model?

I worry that this scale is dying off and as much as I would like to I dont have time to make full builds and if I start doing them in the future they will be much much more expensive as my time is so limited now. I am excited that I have an incredible partner now and will be offering these kits but ...

Jnewboy Customs and Pickelhaube Customs

This past 2 years have been hard, not only because of work but because a lack of time to do anything else but work, including modeling. I have though continued to work with HydroSpan and after around $3k in supplies used in trial and error I have perfected my technique. Right now I have the bottom o...

It will not be like this forever though, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Don’...

Re: Jnewboy Customs New Update 9/17/16

Both sides need to be hollowed out and when fit is perfect recast for the final casting. Ill do the side pylons as one solid piece.

The side pylons and the main pylon will look great!

Re: selling off the last of my collection

People should not lose hope, maybe in Merit but not all hope. 1/18 armor has a rough road as 1/16 is so much more common and is RC which allows people to interact with eachother and their hobby. 1/18 Aircraft are awesome! A bit large for 4 engine aircraft but the bulk of aircraft are amazing in 1/18...

A Zero for Fathers Day

A week ago I stopped all other projects and pulled out an old Green BBi Zero and went to work on it for my dad to give him for fathers day. It is actually very easy, first paint a grey net like camo over the top then go back over it with Tamiya IJN dark green on the spots so it appears that the Gree...

Its not as hard as you may think, I have the Skyworks kit, its really good and can be cast and poured much cheaper than a 3d model, you dont need a new tail, just take a razor saw and slice off the extension part in the D9 tail. The prop and the glass are all thats left. The glass can be done by vac...

The skyworks kit is very good, so good it gives credibility to the theory that Jack was using a 3d printer, which is fine, but he al...
