No probs, click on User CP, then select Send New Message from the menu, set the Recipient name to Nord and fire away :)

Try squadron.com and internethobbies.com

They both have a lot of stuff to choose from, although it's not the same as going to the neighborhood hobby store.

If you are interested in ship models, contact The Scale Shipyard (William L. Upshaw). They make fiberglass hulls, some turrets with barrels, some superstructure shells (Iowa Class in particular), resin castings of lifeboats, doors, etc. and photo-etched brass of life rails, accomodation ladders, radar antennas, etc.

That is if you like large models. He has two sizes of Iowa hulls. The most popular one for R/C modellers is 1:96 and over 9-feet long. And you need a large model building area to build on his Nimitz hull.

I'm not trying to commercialize for Lee, but his hulls not only meet the demands of the serious R/C modeller but have been bought by the US Navy and even some foreign museums.

And it saves you about a year or two of work building the hull and STILL can be considered "Scratch Built" at most model shows.

Thanks again guys for all the help and information.

I currently am looking for Ships, Armored Vehicles, Aircraft.... anything you can name off that involves the military.

I'm just starting back up, so Dale gave me a wonderful site, but any site with these types of models I would greatly appreciate.

The 3 models I have completed before I kind of lost time was an F-14 Tomcat, F-117, and a T-55 tank.
