    1/48 Revell B1 bomber new kit

    I built those Verlinden exhausts back in the early 90'S. They were my very first project using photoetch and were a complete pain in the a$$. I was grateful for Hasegawa issuing Kit P-21 (F-15E) with their rendition of the cans. Then all I had to do was scratch build the tangential pylons for the CFT's. We are truly in the golden days of our hobby my friends.

    I would venture that it is the resin pit causing that. The GWH kit is finicky to begin with the proper alignment of the forward fuselage when you glue. I hosed my F-15D kit because I rushed and didn't take the proper precautions before the glue set. I will dry fit the hell out of the Aires cockpit and if it is not going to fit, I wont use it. What would really be helpful is hearing from Aires if they actually re-engineered the Revell pit so it is different in design and will actually fit the GWH kit. Anything less is not good business (false advertising?) in my opinion. Keep at it Aigore, I want to see a success.

    How about some more builds

    I dont know where you heard a lot of complaints about the Su-34. It has it's troubles but is by far the better 1/48 scale Su-34 on the market and can build up into a nice aircraft model. The Voodoo is another story. It was critiqued heavily.

    Revell 1/48 Tornado GR.4

    I'm sure they'll re-release it again in the future. I have one in the stash to build and with the retirement there will be retirement paint schemes etc. I bet within the next year or 2 you'll see it again. Speaking of the Gr.4 does anyone have any photos or information on the Gr.4's that were used on the Syria raid last spring? I am interested in doing a Tornado that participated in the mission with the Storm Shadows. - Update: It was number IX (B) Squadron. Now if I could locate any photos from that time period I would be set.

    It can be a mixed bag with any Aires resin as well. I bought the cockpit for the GWH kit but when comparing it to the earlier release, they didn't seem to change anything from the cockpit for the Revell F-15E kit. I want to see someone else's work with it (your kit will do) so I don't make a $90 mistake.

    Doh! I saw it just after I posted. I'm debating if I should risk it.

    Thanks. I have the one for the GWH sample and the Revell sample. They look identical and I hope I dont ruin the GWH kit installing the Aires pit. Let me know how your pit fits.

    Is that AIres cockpit the new one released for the GWH F-15E?
