  1. Great build Don! I have a couple of the Monogram Skyhawks in the past and have several more in the stash. I rate it a good value, with very decent detail (as you point out) for the money (less then half the cost of a Hasegawa Skyhawk.) Bummer about the undershot plastic on the centerline tank and wheels. Hmm. Maybe the mold is showing it's age? Or more likely, that the molders are showing their age. The only major flaw with the kit is the lack of engine face, but I plan on re casting a KMC set for my own use. Keep up the great work!
  2. Not to mention those below or downwind of the debris field.
  3. According to Helis.com database, AB-212ASW variant users are/were: Italy (Navy), Spain, Turkey, Greece, Iran, Peru, & Venezuela. Sorry, no Chile. Even so, I am sure there are plenty of c/s available for Kursad to put on a 1/72 & 1/48 decal. I do know that Tauro did the MMI (Italy) decal, and LF did Spain. Not sure if any of the others were minted. I have the Fujimi kit in the stash. It comes with hi-vis (dark sea grey & red) Italian Navy markings. So yes, I welcome this planned decal. HTH
  4. Andy, When I was looking up my NH ANG birds, I found a list of aircraft serial numbers by type, and then looked up each model / serial number individually on Google. Found a couple of photos that way. HTH, R/ Dutch
  5. I am for Peru and Venezuela. Did Chile also fly AB-212ASWs?
  6. decals mailed last week. Money arrived. Thanks.
  7. Looking for: 1/72 IsraDecal #83 E-2C Hawkeye International decals for JASDF Hawkeye only. Any help greatly appreciated. R/ Dutch

  9. Dean, I have your decals ready and packaged up, just waiting for your address. R/ Dutch
  10. So I should pre-order and hope for the best? Are these only limited edition kits? Looks like production is at or below 100 kits.
  11. idea for a 72nd scale sheet

    Okay, a little reality check here! Last post was July 2016. Has anyone purchased this kit? Has anyone received this kit yet? I just checked the Modelcollect website and the B-52H (UA72200) is priced at $99.99 and availability is listed as: "Out of stock." The B-2 (UA72201) is priced at $149.99 with Qty: 56 in stock for "pre-order." The B-52G (UA72202) is priced at $119.99 with Qty 87 in stock for "pre-order." Shipping via China Air Mail to the USA is $27.99. When I last previously checked the Modelcollect website sometime in October, I thought I saw a sizeable discount for pre-order on the B-2 kit. Does Modelcollect not offer this anymore?
