  1. It depends on which version you want to build. If you want to build an A6M5/A6M5A or A6M3 type 22 choose Tamiya. But for any of the other versions go with Hasegawa.
  2. This has some good information in it
  3. I would love to see a 1/48 C-46 kit. Not sure how well it would sell. But I would buy one for sure. I'd also like to see a 1/48 B-18 and B-23 as well.
  4. It is a concept that has spread pretty rapidly the past few years. I've seen them set up for clothing, makeup, sewing, meals, just about anything anymore. I think I would give it a try at probably $30 a month or so, depending on what was in it. I was a member of Lootcrate for some time and loved it. I like the idea of tweaking it for individual consumers. Say along the lines of scale and armor, ships, airplanes and whatnot . I know several of the nerd crates have done that and it seems to work very well.
  5. This. The only really finicky part I ever found was the placement of the rudder pedals. But that was mostly due to my own fat fingers
  6. Usually Amazon has fair prices for most of what I buy. Although I did buy a Revell USS America last week from a third party vendor. They cancelled my order yesterday due to it being out of stock but it shows back up today from the same seller for over 80 dollars. Basically twice the suggested price from Revell.
  7. I'm still getting over having the flu. Started getting it on Christmas Eve from a family member of my wife's. Began with the cold sweats and general achiness. That quickly turned into congestion and finally nausea. The virus decided to kick it up a notch last Friday when I threw up twice at work. Luckily I work at the same apartment complex I live at. So I came home and sleep for 16 hours straight and finally feel better. Still want to murder my wife's aunt for giving everybody the flu though. I'm just glad our newborn son didn't catch it from anybody.
  8. I'm almost positive that is just a reboxed Hasegawa kit with a few new bits added. The sprues look identical to my Hasegawa kit.
  9. Of course the second I start building my Hasegawa kit, this pops up Lol. I'll pick one up eventually.
  10. I like this one the best. But I might be biased since I'm from Oregon lol
  11. I'm a member of several of the model building groups on Facebook. I view them as no different than model building forum boards. I don't see how having multiple groups ruins the hobby at all.
  12. How did I miss this. Looks like you did an amazing job on the Trumpeter kit. To bad the Bronco kit sounds like a virtual copy of the Trumpeter bird. Just going to have to wait until the Airfix kit comes out
  13. Looks like a fun project. Luckily it isn't the vintage one from 1983. It's actually a Toy R Us exclusive from 2011. But it still uses the same molds as the original one.
