Nice fix, man!! It's like it was meant to be; like loading a BB gun.  ;D


Sympathize on them left over parts. I do that, too. Makes for some strange methods of integrating them into the stuff that's more down the road to completion.

Cobras are apparently tail heavy. Good ol' lead shot to the rescue ! The wee gun turret was the perfect hiding spot for that as well.

Yep! so are Hueys (so I'm finding out). On my 'Whiskey Cobra' I used just under a 1/4oz block of lead which I slid under the front cockpit floor and as close to the turret as I could get it. There wasn't any room in the turret though.
If I'm not building models, I'm out riding my dirtbike

Made some good progress on the Cobras last night. One for the Royal Canadian Marines ? And two for the CDN Army. I also spent some time compiling old magazines to recycle, and getting the shelf sorted with things I'm done with and things I want to finish.

Thank you sir !

I posted this pic last year I think, but after digging through the 18 ( yes, that's correct, 18 Rubbermaid totes ) stored at the father-in-laws, I think I finally remembered where the Jag is !

This old Lindberg T-55 was half built when gifted to me in the early part of the century. I figure I'd give it a wee modernization just to get it finished and 'off the books' as they say.

By far. I enjoyed the early Clancy books but the latter one's not nearly as much and finally gave up with him
