  1. I think it's Iwata's the local shop carries! I'll ask if they've got any HP-Cs. And yeah I should also look at building a vent hood, although I was thinking mostly doing it either in my garage or even outdoors.
  2. I'll look into it! Any way I can tell from the box if it's the new tool? I have no idea how fresh or new the inventory is at the local hobby shop, unless you suggest I just order online.
  3. The Millennium Falcon itself is subtly shifting size on-screen so not even the source material itself knows how genuinely big it is, so the quotes seem appropriate 🙂
  4. Take it from someone who up until now has hand-painted models exclusively - get an airbrush! Especially if you want that fresh "from the factory" look. And you'll want to test on something else first - could be as simple as a sheet of scratch paper. BTW those are some amazing skills you've got in that resto!
  5. Ummm...what the title says. I forgot what brand my local hobby store has but I know they carry just one, it's not Aztec.
  6. Thanks everyone! I was tempted to order online but I ended up just going to the local hobby store (HobbyTown USA) and picked up what they had - an Airfix 1/72 Spitfire, a Revell 1/48 P-40 and P-51 and the infamous 1/48 P-61 (the last two are particularly for nostalgia) along with the Revell 1/144 Saturn V (can't wait to see how it compares to the LEGO version!) They did indeed have a wide selection of Tamiya kits but they were priced something like twice as much as the Airfix and Revell offerings. Maybe next time.
  7. Whew, quite a title I know. But I think that pretty much gets everything. Subject isn't really all that much of a concern other than I feel like a classic prop whether it be a Messer, Mustang, Spitfire whatever. 1/72 preferred just because of space concerns. Along those lines I feel like a single-prop too. Other than that, umm, whatev I guess. I'm thinking probably an Airfix, Italeri or Mono/Revell kit is going to fit the bill but that still leaves a lot open for suggestion, especially for any of you who has a preference for a particular kit you think will fit the bill.
  8. Great Googly Moogly, Other Ray, this thing must be huge!
  9. I'm not married to any particular scale, I just put 1/48 as an upper limit, as a matter of fact if anything I prefer 1/72 just for space concerns. But then again of course I wouldn't mind you posting and sharing too 🙂
  10. Any scale is fine as long as it's 1/48 or below, and I'm referring to the "autocannon delete" modification that most Skyhawks flying for "air forces" have nowadays. The article that inspired this, because it does actually look really cool when loaded to the hilt with every upgrade: https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/40404/top-aces-aggressor-a-4s-are-now-the-worlds-most-advanced-skyhawks but notice it's cannons are long gone.
  11. Ideally the most advanced representation of the Skyhawk that is represented in OOB kit form!
