  1. I have no problems with chrome parts, it's the gold ones that are pissing me off, same thing for Toyota GT One I sprayed with Red Tamiya Acrylic can nearly 20 years ago and the paint doesn't want to go off Luigi
  2. I have turned my terrace on a open top chemical lab as I unsuccessfully tried to strip Tamiya Acrylic spray paint, some other HW Store acrylic paint both with isopropyl alcohol, then with a bath of caustic soda then I also used the strongest de-greaser made before the EU laws started to care about this planet and its people health yet that dang paint is still winning...now I have another problem as Fujimi and Aoshima from time to time decide to plate parts with a gold tint aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand caustic soda isn't doing the job, it barely scratched Fujimi gold paint and didn't do a single dent on Aoshima one. What's the trick to get rid of it considering the fact that the mixture I made is so strong that melts silver plating in a matter of seconds? Luigi
  3. I remember seeing pics of parked Migs and probably other aircrafts maybe a Tornado with drums and tires stacked a little behind their center of gravity, who knows maybe Airfix accidentally scanned a fuel drum thinking it was part of the plane and included it, would be fun it that thing turns to be more accurate than their entire model 😄 Luigi
  4. If you are looking for one off schemes F-16 FSD one was painted in a compass-ghost~camouflage while a two seater and another single seater were painted in a better Hill scheme that was never applied F-4D Coonass Militia one had an F-15ish inspired scheme other two or three were randomly painted F-4C/D ROKAF I don't know how many of them served with that camouflage, Cutting Edge had one decal set with that F-4EJ Kai I think it was applied after they parted ways with the grey/white scheme F-104G/S AMI Reparto Sperimentale 37-23 camouflage was similar to JDASF F-104J 635 655 706 etc scheme A-7D possibly? A-10 maybe ab FSD with experimental scheme? Luigi
  5. You can't slap Su-33 pieces onto Su-30SM kit, the nose section of the T-10M was fatter and longer so getting an Su-35 or a Su-37 is a no go Trumpeter Mig-31 boxes do not contain one of the three MLG doors Hasegawa fuselage is a bit skinny and it's also missing the double S profile present on Zvezda kit, also vertical stab needs to be rescribed as they got a couple of panels off Luigi
  6. and that's why I'll never buy any Porsche past 993 GT2 😛 Luigi
  7. Neffan nailed it, I just hope that Modelsvit will somehow also take int consideration prototype Mig-29 versions because I would kill for a 1/72 Mig-29 9.15, it will be easier to make a 9.18 out of a 9.12 by using either 9.13 or 9.19 parts, there is the whole range or ship-borne Mig-29, plus the newer Mig-35, the freaking two-seater and so on Back to Flankers still we lacking standard Su-27B or P variants, there is no Su-35E but Hasegawa and its mistakes, I don't know if Trumpeter Su-34 only requires a newer nose or something worse, I just hope they boxing comes with all the parts on it cause they missed some on their Mig-31 and Su-24 boxes. Zvezda Su-47 might need an update since the resin nose correction it's OOP and it also needs newer vertical stabs as they got those wrong I doubt Zvezda will ever consider export Su-30 variants still they might think about it If Eduard is accusing people of not buying their 35230'923423942394'123419'03912'312 reboxes and not planning to ever release anything past the PFM then there is a need of a definitive Mig-21Bis and SMT with a fuselage which is not an MF one with a Bis bump and stab slammed on top of it Su-25 and it's major variants both from Afghan War to modern ones need some love, I know about Art Model but it seems they messed something up Finally as I have already said Mig-17 and Mig-19 (and also Mig-15 as Eduard is the export variant not russian built one) need some love Luigi
  8. To Zvezda news, there is nothing in 1/72 but tanks and a freaking propelled chunk of plastic, no 9-12, no new Flankers, no updated Hokum or Havoc tooling, not even a newer Maybe 17 or 19 tooling as Airifix will be pushing their Caricature 17 no matter what and it will end like that thing which was named after the Mig-15 but didn't share any traits of it Luigi
  9. Probably, as the pegs are missing from the sprue Luigi
  10. I owned Italeri boxes and they all had the intake cover plus the nose landing gear well which was completely amiss on Esci boxes Luigi
  11. they should just stop pulling "instant Hasegawa'ed" for any given newer tool they release cause that way of doing it's what is making people like me lose interest. I have no interests on buying their FW-190A if the A5 through A9/F9 lineup is incomplete, I would rather go after Hasegawa or Kora kits A newer and complete Mig-21 family in 1/72 was needed, but I don't freaking need 23i9034902342390834901233901238029381209312 MF boxes Luigi
  12. Danny can I ask you if 1/72 F-16AM decal sets for Belgian AF are still bundled with resin humps and lumps? Greetings Luigi
