  1. Lack of response from Tamiya.

    Tamiya USA probably has little to no say in the distribution or publishing of the magazine. Best course of action is to be patient or switch to digital. Sprue Brothers received the NOV issue of SAMs on 2DEC. I would pick them up at Barnes and Noble and it was always a crap shoot so I switched to digital on an 10.5 ipad pro.
  2. Black Friday Disappointment

    Truth be told, of the times I took advantage of their BF sales...I haven’t built one of the kits yet😂
  3. Black Friday Sales

    Squadron is doing 40% off $400 which would be great if they had kits in stock....
  4. Black Friday Sales

    Is squadron doing anything? That 40-50% off was fun.
  5. I’m selling or trading the Golden Dragons boxing of Hasegawa’s 1/48 F/A-18C. The extras include....Flying Leathernecks tail jig, Steel Beach FOD covers, Eduard Mask, and 3rd Wire Wing Folds. -The left wing missile tip launcher broke off and is in a bag with the photo etc. You can either re-glue it or use the included the the 3rd Wire Wing Folds. -The canopy came loose from the sprue so I opened it and re-bagged the loose part. -The box that holds the photoetch and metal landing gear is MIA...but the parts are still included. -Everything else is sealed. Only trades I’m looking for are the Hobby Boss 1/48 YF-23 or Tamiya Betty with figures (Yamamoto) $50 Shipping included within the US.
  6. That decal sheet looks nice! Is that usual Hasegawa fare or is it one of those kits with cartograph stickers?
  7. That ship set sail, sunk somewhere in the mid Atlantic, and no one is looking for it.
  8. There is/was talk and some were made in the current ASU set up....looked nice but these look better and add functionality.
  9. We're missing a duty uniform and this is the one that junior soldiers and senior leaders have told our SMA and CoS we want. It's that one rare time all the stars and planets seem to align. The current leadership has been hitting grand slams connecting with troops and giving them a voice on the little stuff. Black socks, new PT uniform, updated fitness test, rolled sleeves, and now this throw back uniform from the greatest generation....good times.
  10. The Last Jedi (Spoilers)

    The Star Wars video games and cartoon are better than the movies and I still enjoy them all. I also buy the ban dai and lego kits...because it's fun. My boys and I enjoy it and unlike other fantasy and super hero flicks/worlds which have catered to an adult crowd we can watch this as a family.
  11. Are wish lists still allowed?-in 1/48

    A 1/48 PB4Y-2 or Pave Low would be nice
  12. Is the Tamiya 1/48 G4M1 Betty the Yamamoto Transport (TM61110) with figures?
