Leady Ready says the same thing in "Avanti: Mussolini and the Wars of Italy 1919-1945". Unfortunately for Mussolini the country was near bankrupt at the beginning of the war, it's why...

Re: Retired In Kalifornia's Aircraft Model Builds In Progress Photos

Wow what a lineup, those are awesome pics. The P.108B was a large plane but the Trasporto makes it look relatively small in comparison from the top view.

Re: Retired In Kalifornia's Aircraft Model Builds In Progress Photos

A setting solution pushes water out and reduces silvering (apply just before you lay down the decals) - there's none of that on this model but you do get it in others. What I do is spray a gloss to the whole model or to areas you plan to decal, this smoothens the surface and reduces areas where wate...

Re: Retired In Kalifornia's Aircraft Model Builds In Progress Photos

The detail of the gun turrets and mgs (gun barrel perforations) are amazing, hard to imagine its only 1/72. Cockpit detail looks good.

Re: Trump gets ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

What angers me is the speed witch this witch hunt against Trump is proceeding. But that succumb of Clinton seems to be going scot-free. I am 84 years old and I have never seen a more despicable person in all my life. She is on a par with Hitler and Starlin. Anyone that would vote for her is brain d...

Great job but didn't someone recently raise issues about this planes camo and the factory the plane was manufactured from?
