  1. I've been requesting a new tool 1/48 F-111 ever since I got back into the hobby about 20 years ago. Words can't describe how underwhelming the Hobbyboss kit was when it first came out. I've actually resigned to the fact it probably won't happen anytime soon either. I would actually think a new A-10 would pop up long before an F-111 ever does. Purely because they are still in service. Still I hope to be proven wrong but probably not. Sigh...
  2. Ditto! Its been a very long time coming. I've seen many much more obscure and less iconic aircraft been given a better representation in 1/48 scale. How much longer do we have to wait? Hasegawa, GWH, Kinetic ? anyone??
  3. 1/48 F-111 GWH, Hasegawa by anyone whose willing to do their homework! 1/72 B-1B Hasegawa level of detail 1/48 A-10C 1/200 747-800F by Hasegawa 1/48 F-16B/D
  4. Wouldn't visibility be an issue on the deck of an aircraft carrier with the longer nose of the E version? I am thinking this because of how they shortened the nose on the ill fated F-111B.
  5. Nice work! Its good to see someone putting the extra effort into getting this kit to be a more accurate example of the F-111. Ive seen plenty do it with the Academy kit but not so much with this one. Though It still really highlights the gap in the market for a better kit of this iconic aircraft.
  6. Lovely work. I remember building this kit when I was a kid.
  7. Im loving all the attention you 're giving the F-111. Now all we need is a better kit..
  8. Personally I don't like the idea. If anything i would just prefer some rereleases of older hard to come by sheets to be resized like the VF-2 sheet you guys did. Also I would like to request some F-14Ds from the mid 90s like the yellow tail VF-31 CAG and red tail VF-11 CAG from their Carl Vinson cruise. Also some 1976 VF-1 F-14As would be nice so we won't need to backdate the Tamiya kit.
  9. Yep I've been patiently waiting for someone who cares about producing accurate models to do one for a very long time now. HBs half baked effort was a real slap in the face when that came out in 2010.
  10. I've built several Hasegawa Tomcats over the years and I still have one left. I also have a partially built Tamiya one that I'll get back to when the Tomcat bug eventually bites again . But given the amount of effort required to make the Hasegawa Tomcat look half decent coupled with the release of the Tamiya kit and the pending release of the AMK one I honestly don't think I'll get around to it. I just don't have enough free time these days to tackle that kit.
  11. Man thats frustrating since I bought these decals as soon as they became available. Yet another Twobobs sheet that I bought thats never going to get used.
  12. Ditto on the F-111. I feels like I've been waiting for an eternity for a good 1/48 kit to be tooled.
  13. This one is an excellent resource for the RAF Harrier 1. https://www.amazon.com/British-Harriers-Germany-Deutschland-Aircraft/dp/3935687141
  14. Nice work mate. It looks exactly the way I remember them before they changed over to the ghost grey paint. I grew up not far from RAAF Edinburgh and can remember hearing the drone of those Allison turbo props from my house almost daily.
