  1. So we've got all of the SA365F trees, PLUS 3 additional sprues from the previous IHZ kits and some extra PE? I'd love to see photos of those additional sprues to see if they provide anything that would help me get to an accurate HH-65C. Thanks Dustin! Cameron
  2. I just caught a video review of this kit on youtube and saw that it includes markings for an HH-65C out of Port Angeles. Ultimately I'm trying to build a USCG HH-65C, but I don't want to drop another $50 for something that isn't any closer than the older SA365N kit I already have. I'm trying to figure out the differences between this new release and the earlier KH80108 SA.365F kit that I already own. While it looks like much of the kit is the same...there do appear to be a few differences but it's hard to ID them all in the quick review. I do know there are at least some new etched instrument panels..and maybe a new sprue. Anyone picked this up yet who can comment? TIA Cameron
  3. Better yet, when are you going to downscale this to work with my 1/48 Italeri Kiowa? Come on, I can dream can't I?
  4. Just one I put together from a number of reference sources on notable F-105s I might want to model. Probably the single best reference is "Roll Call: Thud" from Schiffer. As much interest as there is in the earlier "Project Lookalike" F-105s in the silver lacquer...they didn't see a lot of combat before they were repainted in the SEA camouflaged schemes and Operation Rolling Thunder ended and the bombing halt began before much of the fleet began to receive the two letter tail codes. So unfortunately most of the aircraft during the F-105s most notable operations over North Vietnam were relatively anonymous looking. Cameron

  6. Having a hard time finding anything definitive. When the aircraft is parked, cold and dark...what is the exhaust nozzle position? Most photos look like they're closed, but there are also a few that don't. TIA Cameron
  7. I've been looking high and low for a set of seamless resin intakes for the Hasegawa 1/48 legacy Hornet kits without any success. All the sets from the usual suspects appear to be out of production. If anyone has an extra set of intakes that they'd be willing to part with, I would be in your debt. Thanks for the look! Cameron
  8. Yes. The only differences in the kit were the rear deck piece and the canopy.
  9. Is there any chance this kit will include parts for the original "non-turned" exhausts? Or am I going to have to scab on the back end of my old Cobra Company resin update for the Italeri kit? Cameron
  10. I received an email from Mission Models this afternoon. Here is the email in total"Hi Cameron Ploy is a temperature sensitive product. When it ships from our warehouse it is in perfect shape. It can not be allowed to freeze or be exposed to high heat. We also do not know how retailers handle the product once received. There is nothing wrong with the product but some chemicals in the hobby or in industrial applications are temp sensitive like that of super glue and other resins. Sincerely Mission models "So basically they're saying that at some point between their warehouse and when I purchased it at the LHS it probably froze, and I'm out of luck.
  11. So a couple of months ago I purchased a bottle of Mission Models Polyeurethane Intermix after watching a couple of videos on youtube. I opened the bottle and used a little with a small project. Last week I went to use it again, but the whole bottle had turned into a congealed white sludge. It looks kind of like milk that has gone off, but with the texture of drywall patch putty. I'm a little annoyed that I bought a bottle of this stuff and got one use before it went bad. I sent a message to Mission Models, but never got a reply. Anyone else have this happen with their bottle of Mission Models Poly, or is this just a bad one? Cameron
  12. Why don't you just get a Blackdog resin one? I'm pretty sure it will be cheaper than printing one, much less the time investment involved. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/BDOA72003
  13. I'm hoping I can find somebody who has the new Eduard Tempest Series 1 kit that isn't planning on using the markings for R-B JN751 that came with the kit. Thanks in advance! Cameron
  14. I've updated my for sale list. I've removed items that have sold and added a few new items. A few kits of special interest include a Hasegawa 1/48 F-16D, a Flightpath (PP Aeroparts) Firefly with a shed load of photoetch and white metal, 2 Hasegawa 1/48 Spitfire IXc's that each include the rare oop injection molded plastic Aeroclub fuselage correction. Many of the kits include extra bonus aftermarket bits. They will be in the description and are included in the price. The kits are complete and unbuilt, but perhaps have been opened, fondled. A few have a couple of parts off the sprues. Prices are pretty firm but reasonable. I might be open to a little haggling, especially if you buy multiple items. Shipping will be based on ACTUAL shipping costs. I’m not making money off of shipping, but I’m not going to take a bath. I will go onto USPS.com and use the actual dimensions and weight of the package and your address to figure out what the shipping cost will be. I will combine shipping on multiple items and its a good way to save some cash. I’m cautiously amenable to international shipping, but you will pay the shipping costs. There are a handful of countries with bad reputations that I will refuse to ship to. You know who you are. Sold items will be noted. First come first served. I take paypal. Leave a reply or PM me and I'll get back to you asap. Plastic Kits Item Manufacturer Scale Asking Contents 1959 Aston Martin DBR1 LeMans Starter 1/43 $30 1972 Ferrari 312PB Targa Florio S.R.C.
