    They are standard kits sold in hobby shops. They do have aftermarket decals which depict actual aircraft used in service.

    great touches added MarineDad,
    my nephew spends hours making the tiny war hammer models (and he does makes them well) that are only like 1" tall, I'm lucky to see the models let alone the fine detail changes & paint he puts on them without magnification.

    My brother and I used to do warhammer models ages ago. He was pretty darn good at it. I gave it up once a bunch of my over priced paints dried out....

    It does indeed take patience but I have found that modeling skills transfer over nicely to straight razor restoration.

    Good idea for a thread John !


    I think this thread is a great idea also!

    I like your burner and fletching. Here are some that I did. I bought the cutter but harvested the turkey. Not as hard as deer hunting but takes some skill for that also!

    Here is a group of arrows that demonstrates why I worry about fletching!

    This shows another skill. I have been struggling with target panic and am hoping to get these groups again.

    I like those arrows but are the dark arrow/feather combo easily lost ?

    So far I'm just happy if I hit the target rather than the brick wall behind it

    It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that ain't so..
