  1. I vote Yes. I've always had fun with these in the past.
  2. This is the set you will want to track down https://www.eduard.com/store/Eduard/TBM-3-1-48-1-1.html?cur=2&listtype=search&searchparam=tbm
  3. Tamiya's new 1/48 Ki-61 has a clear fuselage side. They also released their Mig 15 and Me 262 the same way in the past. Hasegawa has also released a 1/48 Ki-84 and 1/48 A6M5 Zero with a clear side that also included a photoetch "skeleton and additional white metal parts.
  4. They just repopped the Accurate Miniatures 1/48 SB2U Vindicator and 1/48 Amtech Ta 183 a few months back as well.
  5. I would love to see more 1/48 Japanese bombers. Things like the Sally and Nell. Also would love to see a 1/48 B-18 and B-23 bomber
  6. Guess it is time for me to pick up a few kits, just have to wait until payday. Been wanting another B-17 and B-25 anyways.
  7. I just snagged one this morning. Not a bad deal for 20 bucks
  8. I see that Hannants has them in stock now https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/RV3944?&currency_id=2
  9. That's all I would really do. Most of the engine won't be visible with the tight fitting cowl and spinner.
  10. He was also born on the anniversary of Galileo's death.
  11. Somebody asked that same question on the RV Petrel's Facebook page. They said that they would love to go search for the Hornet and the Wasp. But said that the Kongo was probably a no go due to it being very close to Chinese territorial waters.
  12. Trumpeter does a 1/32 F4F-3. I have one in my stash and it looks pretty nice
  13. That would be awesome. Where did you hear they were going to do the decals?
  14. The only time I shop at Squadron anymore is when they have their books on sale for dirt cheap. But that is only about 3 times a year.
  15. Hey I had to work three whole days. Ok maybe two and a half lol
  16. I watched it last night. It was just ok. I felt like the acting was a bit wooden.I won't be buying into the online streaming service though. I will end up finding it free on a website that I use from time to time. I can't get another streaming service when I already have Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and HBO.
  17. I live in Portland Oregon so I just watched it from my yard. That is the Erickson Air Collection in Madras. It is a very nice museum, most everything they have flies as well. The B-17 is currently out touring at the moment though.
  18. Shows tend to be a good place to check. Picked one up last year for 15 bucks at a show.
  19. I've been seeing lots of evidence that points to that photo not having anything to do with her at all. From what I have read, the picture isn't newly "discovered". It has been known about for a few years. Also if they were taken prisoner, why aren't there any Japanese soldiers in the photo at all. Also the females hair appears to be longer then other pictures of her taken during her flight. The male that is supposed to be her navigator has the same complexion as the islanders in the picture. It also looks like he has his hair parted on the opposite side that Fred Noonan did. Lots of little thi
  20. Of course Hasegawa is still very relevant. If you build 1/48 Japanese planes, Hasegawa is one of the few manufactures of them besides Tamiya and Fine Molds. Do I get tired of the same repops with new decals. Very much so. But I also tend to wait until Tower Hobbies has them on sale and pick them up for next to nothing.
  21. I would be all over a nice 1/48 Ki-67 as well as a Ki-21

    1/48 C-46

    Don't worry about him. That is just Gaston Marty for you. He has been booted from just about every forum I've been on. He tends to always use a different name on each one for some reason.
  23. I tend to try and not read his reviews. Funny thing is I just googled him and he did a bunch of writing for softcore porn tv movies. So you know what kind of guy he is lol.
  24. Is he the guy that writes those long winded reviews on Modelingmadness?
  25. Oh it was an amazing experience. Used to see lots of Bald Eagles as well. The best one was the time we had a baby elk that had wandered away from its mother come within 20 feet of us. He stood there for about 5 minutes trying to figure out what we were.
