These are the parts for the optional steps: wish i cut slot for drop tank. Afraid i'll mess up the wing tip up option. With all this small parts

i may do wheels up.

These photo were taken with my Canon PowerShot A590

Question: How do I set up my Canon PowerShot A590 to take close up of pilots and better photos?

I found my camera and the memory card. it is much easier that waiting for Icloud to sync my photos from my iphoto or plug in my phone and wait...

I borrowed Migrant photo booth, need to get a sheet of paper any suggestion? Heard a fold able laundry bin will do for a photo booth? Any suggest

for a cheap photo booth and need more lighting....

Hello UMAF,

I have a Porter Cable compressor from my mobile bike shop days.... Any idea what fitting/adapter and or hose need to run a air brush?

As i kid it remember having a Testors's Atezk airbrush on canned air. I do not think i develop skill or talent with it. I hand brush everything expect

when i have one solid colour i get a rattle can of tamiya spray paint. My welcome thread has some photos of my recent (it just stated up again a few

months ago) builds and the paint and supplies i have collected so far. Some with the help of my friend Migrant. Very good mentor to have. He build in

competition winning category! As a young boy/teenage I would build Revell kits and use Testor paints. That all my small town of Peace River, Alberta

had! Migrant gave me a Airfix Spitfire and other kits and got a NASCAR car of kijiji free and I was hooked again....

Look forward to seeing some of your model pictures....

I add some glue, paint and nail set/sanding boards. Also found a good pair of reading glass +1.50 at value village (better than dollor store ones)

Also add two kits to my stash:
