  1. Sopwith Camel 1/16 by Mike Dowling

    Why? Are you entering it for awards? Make that thing pop!
  2. Future floor polish (the acrylic kind) is the best. Can be brushed or airbrushed. It levels very well and provides an excellent base and reduces silvering. Also a great setter, too. Once is dry, it can take any covering.
  3. Sopwith Camel 1/16 by Mike Dowling

    Great job! I thought about this kit, too. However, that engine and all the other white-metal pieces looks almost toy-like and having no life. Even if you are going for an unpainted look, every metal used wasn't the same exact color all the way through - the gun metal most certainly wasn't the same as used in engine as used in cowlings, etc. Paint/wash/drybrush/etc to bring things to life. I mean, why paint the engine mount (looks to be almost a WWII era interior green color - was that how the originals were painted or just something different?) and not the guns, engine, struts, etc.? Would really bring things to life and make it look like a real plane but without its skin. Great job on all accounts! I love it and don't mean to sound harsh...

    Built the same ship and put it asea on a base with water made out of paper mache, paint, and future. That is, I had one until the ex-wife dropped it and destroyed it.
  5. Word Recognition game

    Here is another game besides the song title and keep a word games we play on a slow day at work. Ok, so here's how this works: I'll start it off with a word, say "Tacoma", and you then say the first word that comes to mind, like "Truck", and the cycle continues forever. So here we go, I'll start... Mustang Edit: Please keep the response to ONE word.
  6. Song Title Game

    The movie game got me to thinking of another game that may be fun - song titles. Just something we do in the office to pass the time... Here's the rules: We start with a song title. Then the next post has to have a word in it from that song title. If i put Flight of the Bumblee by Korsakov, then the next post could be Flight of Icarus ~ Iron Maiden. ALSO NO ONE NAME SONGS So here we go........ It's Five O' Clock Somewhere - Allan Jackson
