    WW 2 aircraft, Russian jets and Viet Nam era American jets. All 1/48.
  1. Sprue Brothers has the set from SAC in stock, for that specific kit. I built the Hasegawa offering of that aircraft a few years ago, and the landing gear leaves much to be desired strength wise.
  2. Warpath Across the Pacific was one that I had a hard time putting down Another is High Noon over Haseluenne.
  3. Title pretty much says it all. Any opinions on this kit, please?
  4. I have been going through my books for an upcoming Flanker project, and the more I read, the more confused I get, sort of. It appears to me that twin seat Flankers and single seaters have different vertical fins. The tops are different, and sometimes rudder length is different. Add canards and TVC and it really gets confusing, to me anyways. Most of my books just eat with the Su-27 and barely touch on the later versions. Can someone please shed some light on this for me?
  5. You might want to go over to swannysmodles.com. He has an article there on the 1/48 B-17. Should have everything you want to know and then some.
  6. I'm going to have to look at mine to see if I can replace the kit parts. Mine is almost ready for paint.
  7. I disagree on the A-6. I have two of them, one part ways done, and I think that the way the nose is supposed to attach to the fuselage leaves a lot to be desired.Just not too well thought out. The belly area around the engines is another area where HB really dropped the ball. And I was so looking forward to that kit too.
  8. sitting in Grade Five, wishing I was some where else. My life long love affair with flight and airplanes was just starting due to re-runs of Twelve O-Clock High.
  9. I have two of those sets, and its not you. The instructions are terrible, the resin is worse. On top of that, there are fit issues with a lot of the parts. Pure garbage!!
  10. I think I said that I was in. If I can't find something in the stash, I'll get something.
  11. What ever happened to that Night Fighter Group Build? Hope I didn't miss out on it.
  12. Sweet!! I'll be getting one for myself at some point!!
  13. The belly of the HB A-6 is painfully over engineered. Don't ask me how I know.
