  1. I agree Collin, the AFV F-5 is a nice kit though it has some issues. For instance, while looking at the previous page photos and my kit I noticed that the AFV F-5 has probably in some areas more rivets applied (if you have the kit check the wings' riveting and the one from Chuck's build), with some being misaligned (on the middle of the fuselage) and a line on the upper surfaces of the wings that it shouldn't be there. Cheers Bill
  2. Hi Chuck, Many thanks for your reply. I have recently bought the AFV Club F-5E and it would be interesting to compare it to your build in order to see if it has any areas that need to be fixed (you know panels, panel lines, rivets, etc). Keep up the good work!!! Bill
  3. Hi Chuck, Very nice work so far. BTW, I would like to ask you; do you think that the Kitty Hawk F-5E is more accurate than the AFV Club kit (different scales/companies but nonetheless both recent kits)?

    "Ethiopian"?? Man! And I thought that I was picking up difficult subjects to model!!! (US Navy Adversaries units, including NFWS - all of them!!!) Good luck with your search Matt. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  5. Hello everyone, As the title says, I'm looking for the Paragon Designs F-4S Phantom Inboard Extended Slats and Corrected Outboard Slats in 1/72 #72058. I can afford up to $25 (including shipping with tracking). Thank you for your time guys.

    Hi Derek, If you have the Fujimi kit, go for it!!! If not, then the downside is that this kit is quite expensive. You might find one with a decent price on Ebay but, the shipping cost can prohibit you from buying it, at least this is what has happened to me in more than two occasions๐Ÿ˜ก Ofcourse, taking the Fujimi air intake and placing it on the Hobbyboss kit is not an easy task because you also have to count the front wheel well in the whole "equation"!!! This is the reason why I'm looking for the RVHP set. By the way, I did find one recently on Ebay (for the 1/48 Hasegawa kit) but again, the shipping cost was high. As the seller told me it has to do with the fact that the whole airframe is cast in resin thus, increasing the weight of the kit's packaging. Anyhow, if you decide to go for it with the Fujimi kit then good luck!! By the way, have you thought about taking the air intake from another kit? There are plenty out there.... Matchbox, Heller, Airfix, Italeri....
  7. The "crispness" of this build is amazing!!! Great job Markus!!!๐Ÿค™

    ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฏ The only reason for which I'm looking like crazy for the RVHP resin set!!!

    1/48 Hobbyboss F-14D VF-101

    Great paint/weathering on the cockpit!!!
  10. The kit is excellent though mind the recessed panel lines. At some points of the airframe they tend to disappear very quickly after a pass or two with a sand paper!
  11. Many thanks for your quick response Raymond! I'll keep an eye on your website!
  12. Hello, I was wondering if anyone has bought an aftermarket set recently from Modern Hobbies LLC (modern-hobbies.com). Many thanks Sernak
  13. Hi Raymond, What about Fightertown Decals? I'm interested for a specific decals' sheet (FTD-48077V2) but for the past month all I see is that the item is marked as "future release".
  14. Hi All, 8 days ago I bought from Steve Corvi (scorvi) a kit and an aftermarket resin set. The kits were packed very carefully and USPS has proved for one more time to be a trustworthy service. Definitely recommended as a seller. ๐Ÿ‘

    FS: 1/72 and BOOKS

    Steve is an excellent seller. I have bought the Hasegawa 1/72 TF-104G with the Verlinden set. We had a constant communication, covering every detail of this transaction. Moreover, Steve did an excellent job to secure that both items would arrive safely and USPS has proved that it is still a trustworthy service. Definitely recommended! ๐Ÿ‘
