  1. There was already a build proposal for aircraft, vehicles, and spacecraft from movies and television, and I am strongly in favor of seeing that take place. It just fell a little short the first time it was proposed. This is kind of the opposite of a "what if" because you are building off a preexisting design, just one based on fiction.

    F/A-18A Tail Angle

    It does. I checked with multiple pictures and some of the better line drawings, and they all have angles of 19°, not 12°. That's not total proof (line drawings are sometimes mistaken, angles are not always preserved depending on the focal length of photographs), but they are consistent with each other. That's what I used on my F-18 models.
  3. More than a place, it has tradition. There have already been "What if" group builds here. But we haven't seen one in a while, so it would be good to have one again.
  4. Very finely done. Excellent painting and the antenna work and brakelines really push the level of the model higher. I can't find anything wrong with it.
  5. I was into the Eagle Dynamics stuff a long time ago, and it's hard to call it a game. It's more like work. You literally have to "go to school" before you even start. I already have a work-like hobby. It's called modelling.

    KA-6 Tanker 1/72 Scale

    Thanks for sharing, and thanks for giving us access to high resolution pictures. It's very rare to see builds of this aircraft variant, and as I'm building one too I like looking to see what other people do. Could you tell us which kit you used, and where you got the extra fuel tanks from? Details about your work (especially third-party details or decals, and any extra work you did) is always helpful to other builders.

    Slovenian Nationals 2018

    Thank you for sharing these, and for your excellent photography skills. Some of them were really jaw-dropping.

    I love the work you did on the accessories and giving the metal a scale thickness. The figures are all fantastic. It looks like it's been diving around for a hundred years.

    AFV F-5E/F (MIG-28) 1/48

    This looks great so far.

    Black Tiger

    That really does look great, and the added details are not only well done, but fitting to the classic design.

    Any good "clear skin" models?

    Tamiya actually did a clear-decked ship. Their 1/700 kit of the Japanese SDF amphibious transport ship Shimokita allowed you to see into the interior hold and well deck, and gave you a bunch of tanks and trucks and a couple non-operating LCAC to fill it. I don't know how easy it would be find now.

    Mk 82 and Snakeye colors in Vietnam

    In this case the inner front position would be empty. In fact, you might see a MER with three bombs (outer front, center front, inner rear).

    Any good "clear skin" models?

    Zoukei-Mura also did a 1/48 version of the Horton 229, and will soon release a 1/72 kit, all with clear outer skins. A 1/144 version will be included with the 1/72 kit, but I guess a clear skin is asking too much of that scale.

    AFV F-5E/F (MIG-28) 1/48

    It is a lighter gray than the actual aircraft, but it's not uncommon to see modellers use a lighter grey in cockpits because it doesn't get much light in there and a lighter paint increases contrast and makes it fit closer to viewer's expectations. I would leave the paint as is, and do a light wash to sharpen up the edges.
  15. Thanks for the comments. One of the few benefits of being extremely nearsighted.
