  2. What exactly is the High Density Foam you're using? It looks like it is carve-able? Nice work! M

    Which 1/48 Kit for an Su-27?

    The HB kit builds very well, bu as pointed out there are issues. Some of the panel detail is fictional at best, and the burners are pretty poor representations. If GWH do a -27 in the same vein as the -35, it will be fantastic. The KH -35 is pretty good, but really pales in comparison to the GWH. I expect the same will be the case with their respective -27 kits. M

    Speaking of ridiculous Hasegawa prices. Add the 4th TA-4 Skyhawk to the list! Stupid asking prices!

    F/A-18A Tail Angle

    BTW. Dave made a jig for the 48th scale Hasegawa Hornets to set their incidence correctly. If you asked him nicely, he may do one for 32nd scale! M

    1/48 Su-30MKM Flanker-H (Hobby Boss Su-30MKK Conversion)

    So I inquired with Mr Naza bout buying one of his sets. $26US for the set, fine. $12 postage, okay, $6 Paypal fee OUCH!!! For a total of US$44. Haven't decided if I need it "that" badly. Just an FYI. M

    Could you finish the second LANTIRN from the Tamiya D kit with the head rotated so that the glass is covered? M

    Su-35 colours (in Syria)

    The Akan paints seem pretty consistent between the lacquer and acrylic range, color match wise. I used the lacquer version for my -35, simply because I prefer that type of paint.

    Su-35 colours (in Syria)

    The MRP Su-35 colors are wy off compared to photographs. The AKAN versions (in m case the lacquers) were MUCH closer. M

    Kitty Hawk 1/48 Su-17 / 22

    I built the review model for FSM when i first came out. The model has been sitting on my shelf ever since, and shows no issues with the undercarriage. FWIW. M

    F-14D ejection seat harness and belt color

    Part of the problem is that there are a number of options. No 2 seats are "exactly" the same! Especially considering wear and tear and the age of the seat. Hardest thing to pin down is the belt colour, as there isn't one that I have found that looks right. The belts have a metallic appearance to them that is not available without mixing. FWIW. M
