  1. I understand and appreciate all the deficiencies in the Hobby Boss f-111 kits. That's why I haven't ever bought one. I was just struck that Reskit put in the time and effort to produce a cockpit set for a version of the F-111 that Hobby Boss never appeared to have released. I was planning on waiting for their cockpits for the Academy kits...for which I already have the full meal deal. Dmold TP II intakes, Reskit Exhausts, Scaledown wings and mainwheel well. I've got the old Verlinden update (yes I know), the Flightpath Pave Tack pod and picked up a lovely Eduard Brassin Pave Ta
  2. Did Hobby Boss actually produce a 1/48 F-111F kit? I've looked all over the webs and found no evidence of one. I've seen the F-111A, FB-111, F-111C and F-111D/E, but no F-111F or EF-111A? Just making sure I didn't miss something. Keenly waiting for Reskit to release cockpits for the Academy kits I've collected all the fixings for. Cameron
  3. I know that I'm tilting at windmills here, but I'd love to see reprints of the 1/144 C-5 Galaxy sheets and the 1/144 C-133 Cargomaster sheet. I've had an alert on ebay for them for almost two years (maybe a little longer) and have NEVER seen one come up. Even the really obscure retailers don't have any. They are unobtanium. Keep up the great work. Cameron PS any word on that 1/144 B-58 Hustler sheet?
  4. I need to update this. Matt Bole did in fact send a refund last week when he said that he had. Unfortunately he sent it to an incorrect email address. So some other guy on gmail has spent the last week wondering why in the hell he just got $31.50 from Hobbyworld USA. After trading a couple of messages last night...Matt sent me a full refund for the balance of my order this morning via Paypal. So we're good at this point.
  5. Many of you saw, read or commented on my post last Tuesday, May 24th regarding Matt Bole and Hobbyworld USA. I’m not interested in re-hashing that whole thing. But I am going to provide an update. First of all, there were some who doubted the veracity of my story…attached is a scan of the original invoice that came in the box with my order. For those not familiar, Matt highlights the items on the invoice that are on backorder. I didn’t do that. I did however write Matt’s phone number on the bottom of the invoice so that it was easier when I tried to contact him later to inquire about the
  6. FYI, Matt Bole posted on FB that a "refund is on the way" a couple of hours ago. I'd like to give him the benefit of the doubt, and when I receive that refund I'll consider the matter closed.
  7. You must not have been paying attention to the world in the last 30 months. Getting stuff from one side of the blue marble to another right now has been harder, slower and more expensive than you can believe. So you order something that is from Europe and the UK... in the middle of COVID, in the middle of Brexit. The guy says he's getting a shipment in a few weeks. You say ok. Weeks turn into a couple of months... It doesn't take all that long to hit your Paypal 90 day window. Unless of course you are an a**hole.
  8. June 27, 2021 I placed an order (#026737) with you for a number of items, mostly MRP paints. I paid for the complete order using Paypal. You shipped the bulk of them, but three bottles of MRP (MRP032, 197 and 198) were put on backorder...along with a bottle of Zero Paints Vintage Jaguar Opalescent Light Maroon. The total for the three MRP paints and the Zero Paint was $31.50 I called and spoke with you a couple of times last fall...where you said you were variously either just about to place an order or an order was expected shortly from either/both MRP and Zero Paints. I was p
  9. Looks lovely. All she could use is some help in the cockpit. Cameron
  10. If anyone has this piece left over from their build, or doesn't plan on using it for a future build. I'd love to track one down. Thanks in advance. Cameron
  11. Look great! I'd be in for a set. Throw up a link when they become available.
  12. Anybody ever do a set of rivet decals for the new 1/48 Hind kits? Seems like a must have.
  13. Probably one of the most spectacular sheets I've seen in awhile. Even if you don't love the Peacemaker...this is a must have sheet.
  14. In their reply to my message THEY ACKNOWLEDGED that it hadn't shipped and indicated it would go out "soon" in another container. All of the defense of Luckymodel is charming...but I think Raymond is capable of defending himself if he ever bothers to respond.
  15. You all are completely missing the point. I am aware of the shipping delays associated with surface shipping. That isn't the problem. The problem is that it seems that Luckymodel took my order and my money three months ago...and NEVER SHIPPED the order. Furthermore they never noticed that they hadn't shipped the order until I asked them about it. And after they figured it out...they seem to think that I'm ok with them just putting the order on another container at some undefined point in the future so I can start the surface mail shipping clock again, rather than prioritizing my order and
  16. First I want to say that I've used Luckymodel for four previous orders since 2015 with satisfactory results, but I wanted to share my most recent experience. And for what it's worth, I have already contacted Luckymodel through their messaging system and I've also sent Raymond Chung a private message through ARC (without a response yet). On October 16 of last year I ordered a GWH 1/48 Su-27 and a Meng 1/24 GT40 Mark II from Luckymodel. They were both listed as In Stock on the website and I selected surface mail, knowing that it would probably take a couple of months for them to ar
  17. Benchworks also did some 1/48 resin P&W R-2800 engines...which at the time were among the more accurate available and included different ignition/magneto/prop governor arrangements depending upon the version of the engine. Cameron
  18. Why don't you actually be responsive to the OP's question? He didn't ask about Kirrey, or RESKIT or Aires or Eduard. He must have a specific reason for asking about Benchworks. Benchworks was run by Kevin "Suds" Suddharth from Colorado Springs. He passed away in 2015. I used to have some of his stuff. He did do some intakes and exhausts for Hasegawa 1/48 Phantoms. He also did nifty little inserts for the engine accessory doors that are open on the belly so that it looked like there were actual engines in there...the only other people to do that were Aires. Unfortunately I do
  19. Sorry it took me a few days to reply. The high visibility markings on Kee Bird were Insignia Red.
  20. Would you be interested in scaling that beauty up to 1/48 for my HpH B-36 kit? No? Ok, how about 1/72 for all of us Peacemaker fans who have a Monogram kit in the stash?
  21. Well. Can probably help you with that. Happy to loan references to you understanding I get them back in same condition. There is quite a bit of stuff produced over the years on the Vietnam Air War in the 70s and 80s.
  22. With the release of the spectacular Fine Molds kits (F-4C, F-4D, F-4E, F-4J, F-4EJ/kai)...I've been looking for some 1/72 SEA decals. The only set to show up on E*** in the last 3 months was a set of Cutting Edge decals with some markings for Steve Ritchie that sold last night for 51GBP! For us yanks...that is $70...plus shipping. https://www.ebay.com/itm/203612324203 I know that 1/72 is a little out of your wheelhouse, but some nice 1/72 sheets for the Fine Molds Phantoms...particularly some SEA schemes would probably be a strong seller. I know I'd be a purchaser.

  24. You still working on/planning to release your 1/48 FJ-3 updates? Just managed to add one to the stash. Cameron
