RIP Lenny

On Saturday my wife and I made the painful decision to put Lenny, our beloved 13 year old male Tonkinese, to sleep. Lenny had been in rapid decline for 2 days before we were able to get him into the vet. Tests revealed his kidney's were failing. We had known in 2015 that his kidney's were borderline...

Re: Spindrift from Land of the Giants by Polar Lights

The Spindrift is a terribly unrealistic aircraft. There is no way passengers would be given that much arm and leg room. My thought exactly! The seats are way oversized, the passengers are swallowed up in them. They actually seem to be slumping down so far they could just slide ride off onto the flo...

Re: Spindrift from Land of the Giants by Polar Lights

Is there some "secret sauce" on how to paint something so small/get tiny details? A glass of wine doesn't hurt. Seriously, the basic ingredients are a steady hand, a fine (like 20/0) tipped brush, and a sharp pointed tool like a toothpick or a dental tool. Also fine needle files and sandi...

Re: Spindrift from Land of the Giants by Polar Lights

Greeting fellow LOTG enthusiasts! Time for a post-holiday :( update I think... Glued the aft cockpit wall in place. Ended up having to shave off the top and file a slot to allow the roof to sit level though: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4629/24751890857_021358aab0_b.jpg Aft Cockpit Bulkhead Instal...

Re: Romulan Vengeance from NorthTrek Creations

On second thought, yeah, go ahead and dunk it in Dawn dishwater overnight. So you recommend soaking resin kits overnight? Is that standard for mold release removal? In the past I've just soaked them for about 10 minutes or so in hot warm water and dishwashing liquid before scrubbing with a bristle ...
