  1. Of all the weathering shots, the most exotic and unique are those of an F-22. The colors fade and the jet weathers like it has whole color palette to itself! Most unique metallic, translucent and grey shades.
  2. Any idea when will this set be released?
  3. This is a beautiful kit with unbelievable details not seen before. I m thinking of selling my Kinetic kit now.
  4. Gone! Really?? https://www.testors.com/product-catalog/testors-brands/model-master/metalizer-lacquer-paint/bottles https://www.testors.com/help-and-support/store-locator/
  5. This is spectacular. How manufacturing aircraft for was was transformed by America. It would have been a gigantic task to stream in supplies, set up manufacturing processes and keep the quality in check. Some 8600 B-24s were built here. The whole film is worth watching.
  6. Looking at those old pictures of missiles in 1980s, the color looks more like white but with gray undertone. I think Gunze H316 captures that color very well. Its neither totally white nor gray.
  7. With so many manufacturers coming from China recently, the world order in scale modeling is certainly changing. I find Meng, Bronco, GWH, Dragon to be producing some high quality kits. They are offering varied subjects with great detail and engineering at a very high frequency. My recent 5 purchases have all been from these manufacturers and I m quite fascinated by what comes in the box. All very good quality kits. Tamiya and Hasegawa, the more traditional manufacturers have been left quite far behind.
  8. Yes. Mr. Airbrush 770 is the one I m targeting for my Christmas shopping. It has great review both in terms of build quality and performance. Its half the price of Iwata and is equally. good.
  9. I use Iwata Revolution for all my work. Its a 0.5 mm nozzle. Recently I found out that for fine work like mottle on Luftwaffe aircraft, I need a fine airbrush. I did some shopping around and Iwata for super fine work are out of budget. However, Mr. Hobby has a 0.18mm air brush and it has great reviews. So I m looking to buy it soon. http://www.mr-hobby.com/en/itemDetail.php?iId=16
  10. And what if we dont find it there? That means this AMK kit is no good!! Another reason to trash this kit and do 250 more pages 🙂
  11. Let Grumman build the real F-14 in 1/48 only then we will be satisfied 🙂 🙂
  12. I found Monogram RF-101B kit after a lot of effort. The reason I went to look for it is because KH kit has some fundamental mistakes that to me at least are hard to fix. Like its cockpit, the filler plate underneath that replaces the weapons bay for RF-101B is missing. I had Monogram F-101B in Revell boxing and comparing the KH with Monogram, I felt keeping aside the raised panel lines, the Monogram kit is much better. The raised lines can be rescribed and you wont need to rescribe each and every line. For Monogram kit, the cockpit out of the box is so much nicer you will not need an aftermarket. There are some improvements needed of course but wont be so hard in the realm of modern day kit building.
  13. If that is the price for a 1/48, then thank you very much for your effort. I cant buy it.
  14. If the fit is as good as the build thread shows, this is a better kit than Tamiya. Lot more options. Lot more details.
  15. I think time to stop criticizing and start building the kit. It looks awesome on the build thread at Britmodeller.
