  1. Tamiya now that they are releasing an A in 1/48. Just announced today.
  2. I suspect that may be a preorder price. Expected release date in October, so I kinda wonder if Meng started on this project at about the same time as ZM?
  3. Just read on facebook via their page and Boneyard Safari that Special Kay, the only flight worthy B-26K, has suffered a collapsed gear upon landing. Major damage to the left engine nacelle and main gear. No other info at this time.
  4. I had this exact same thing happen to me with the same paints. I ended up stripping off the paint from the affected areas, then sanding with 4000 grit sanding sponge to feather back the edges. Reapplied gloss black base in several coats to build it back up past the ridges. Polishing out the black base coat to get it super smooth, then reapplying the NMF. This time, I applied Tamiya x-22 in light coats to seal in the NMF paint. I didn't have a problem with tape residue after that. Of course, I would test it out first on a test mule or something like that.
  5. I know this isn't really appropriate for a model forum. But my cat, my child, really, was killed this morning. To say it's been a very rough day so far is a bit of an understatement. Fare well my friend. I'll see you again someday.
  6. https://www.amazon.com/BB-01-Airplane-Building-Berth-Graving/dp/B086QRJ297/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?crid=24R68B4TXY8JA&keywords=model+aircraft+building+stand&qid=1653894629&sprefix=model+aircraft+building%2Caps%2C125&sr=8-3 Assembly required, but I find this useful for smaller planes.
  7. I really want to see a new tool 1/48 B-26 Marauder. After that, new tool B-25B through J models, also in 1/48. ICM did a fantastic job with the Invader kits, so I know they would be the best choice to produce them. Also, they are about the same size as the Invader, so it would make sense for them to produce the Marauder and B-25's.
  8. Proxxon variable speed rotary tool along with the converter it needs. Also get a set of diamond grinding bits. The diamond bits can be found on amazon for around $10 or so.
  9. I use this. It's pretty much the same and you can find it on amazon. But, it's a little pricy as most of them are. Also, the DAP rapid fuse ca glue he mentions can be found on amazon as well, I believe.
  10. https://lm.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.usatoday.com%2Fstory%2Fnews%2Fworld%2F2022%2F04%2F04%2Fworlds-largest-aircraft-ukraine-wreckage%2F7270638001%2F&h=AT1iC33Mm44rIDuSlsNJ5lx90WgPqEBfatqfy_-a2W_JNPDJl6MufxHNrYiDZweA2106YtsqNLvX8NvR3OcKYaJ3MSkA3opF7hgxrAACZo-kb-DPIiY6JsxYz4QfrOrZL8G7 Such a sad sight.
  11. I have one, but it is too small to fit the lid in it.
  12. There comes a time when tools you have had for years need to be replaced. It served me well over the years, but the lid has fused itself to the jar. And no amount of pressure, cleaning, or heat would make it budge. Here's to another ten years, hopefully!
  13. From what I have been reading about the second aircraft, the wings and tail assembly have already been built for it. They just need to be assembled on the fuselage. Then again, I may be wrong on that. If correct, it would make a lot of sense to recover everything they can from the original and transfer it to the second plane. Thoughts on this idea? But, with everything going on in Ukraine, this is the least of their worries, right now. I really hope the brave people of Ukraine can pull through this senseless war.
