  1. 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.
  2. What's up with Academy and Hasegawa?

    Wow. Very thorough. Thanks.
  3. What's up with Academy and Hasegawa?

    Anybody make correction stabs for the X-15 kit?
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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?
  7. Great Wall customer service link

    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.
  8. Great Wall customer service link

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

    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.
  10. Great Wall customer service link

    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.
  11. Great Wall customer service link

    Man, I'd appreciate it if you could find it. Is it the GW link or a link specifically for replacement parts?
  12. Great Wall customer service link

    Is there a customer service link for Great Wall? I'd like to get their update parts for the F-15 B/D that were wrong in the early issue kits.
  13. Kitty Hawk 1:48 Su-34

    It's been on Freetime for the better part of a year.
  14. Aftermarket 1/48 F-4 Phantom Fuel Dump Post?

    I'd be surprised if it wasn't one of your best sellers. I'm surprised Master or someone doesn't offer steel dump vents.
  15. Searching for a paint brand

    That's great! Thanks, folks!
