    1/48 - Sukhoi Su-35 "Flanker-E" by Great Wall Hobby

    Got my kit today. No tinted canopy as advertised. Easy enough with some Future and Tamiya yellow.

    Minicraft 1/144 KC-135 series

    Really nice build. I'm discovering some of the nice detailing decals available for 1/144 airliners.

    Minicraft 1/144 KC-135 series

    Thanks, folks.

    Minicraft 1/144 KC-135 series

    I've read the Minicraft civilian 707 series has a bad nose shape. Is that true of the KC-135 series? I read an IPMS review of the KC-135E that said the nose was fixed. Wonder if that's true of all the military 707 kits from Minicraft? Anyone know?

    Looks like we are getting a 32nd B-24

    Outnumbering the unbuilt 1/96 Revell Cutty Sark kits sitting around.

    Finish for Bare Metal Foil?

    Thanks. I applied it over the existing glossy finish and it laid down great, and I've sealed it with Future. I'll mask off the foil with sticky notes to apply a final flat finish.

    What's up with Academy and Hasegawa?

    Wow. Very thorough. Thanks.

    Anybody make correction stabs for the X-15 kit?

    What's up with Academy and Hasegawa?

    Nobody knows how to take some dissolved putty or primer/filler and go over the wings? It's a lot easier than getting a resin cockpit/gear well to fit.

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Looks great to me! Can't wait! Tomcat - down and dirty - wings spread -ready to leap off the deck and pounce on the bad guys. Tamiya- great museum display. AMK - great live action diorama bird. Love'em all. Buy'em all. Release the decal stash!

    Finish for Bare Metal Foil?

    I'm going to be applying adhesive backed foil to a painted surface. Would it matter whether it was applied to a glossy finish or a flat finish if it's rubbed down anyway?

    Proving the old adage, there's never enough time to do it right but always enough time to do it over. Glad you talked to a rep but they could well afford to offer the parts for the cost of shipping. But it's irrelevant as long as they put out good products in the future. I'll be looking for reviews before I buy products sight unseen. Proving the other adage, caveat emptor.

    And, magically, a couple of correction sets appeared on ebay for $37 shipped. Lesson: Always wait for the review. There is no customer service.

    Lucky Model responded and asked for my order number. I replied that it was a couple of years ago and I couldn't be sure it was Lucky. Lucky replied that "Unfortunately, we have no more of this part for the moment." So unless Lion Roar responds, I'll be building the model as-is.

    Thanks. I contacted SB and someone responded within minutes. They referred me to Lion Roar. I've emailed them. I suspect I'll be sent to a US distributor, but anyway, the process is started. Thanks much.
