  1. When was Sparrow de-commissioned or is it still being used on other fighter jets? Sorry if its an off topic question.
  2. Tamiya Release Rumors?

    May be a new armor kit in 1/48. Frankly for me at least, 1/48 is a not a scale for armor.
  3. SyAAF Su-22M4 dark brown color?

    In the picture at least, the color shade looks very similar to Gunze Brown Violet H-421. Try changing a shade by mixing khaki, buff or deck tan. http://www.hyperscale.com/galleries/2001/bf109g14cw_3.htm See the link for color shade reference.
  4. Today I present to you my recently finished Revell Eurofighter Typhoon in 1/48. Revell kit builds into a fantastic scale replica but its not without its challenges. To build this kit, I have used the following detail sets. · AIM-120 from Hasegawa Weapons Set E X48-17 · Eduard EF2000 Single Seater Detail Set 49367 · Two Bobs RAF 90th Anniversary , RAF Coningsby 29th Squadron June 2008. I have used Gunze Acrylics, my preferred brand of colours, to paint the aircraft. I have used Gunze H334 Barley Grey H332 Light Aircraft Grey, H57 Aircraft Grey and also some black and H53 Neutral Gray to do some pre and post shading. Some panels on Eurofighter tend to fade and give the impression of bluish color. For that I have used mix of H67 RLM Light Blue and H418 RLM78 Light Blue. The weathering is slight and I have tried to replicate the weathering effect after viewing several photographs of RAF Typhoons on the internet.
  5. A Su-33 typical loadout?

    Details on AM weapons look very sharp. Thanks for sharing.
  6. A Su-33 typical loadout?

    It seems Kinetic kit does not have bombs included in it. Do any manufacturer builds Russian weapons?
  7. A Su-33 typical loadout?

    Thanks but which weapons are these and does the Kinetic kit has the pylons/hardware to carry these weapons?
  8. A Su-33 typical loadout?

    Which ground attack weapons can Su-33 carry and at which hard points? I My question is specific to my intention to build an aircraft from Syria campaign.
  9. Kinetic Su-33 on-line manual

    I second you on - Sukhoi Su-25 Frogfoot - Mi-28 Havoc Helicopter I m not a great fan of Russian aviation but I would still like accurate kits that fit well too.
  10. Kinetic Su-33 on-line manual

    With your attention to detail and your commendable willingness to listen to your consumer, I can only wish if you can give us an accurate model of Su-22 single and two seat versions.
  11. Kinetic Su-33 on-line manual

    If kit is ordered today, will we get the new instructions in the box? Or will have to download it from Kinetic website?
  12. New Tool Bf 109G-6 from Tamiya

    No more 109 kits you said? Even in the video, the fitting is looking so crisp and the level of detail is so sharp. I bet when you have this kit in your hands you will say 'Tamiya! where have you been?'
  13. New Tool Bf 109G-6 from Tamiya

    This means that 1/32 version of Bf109 will be coming soon! Wish fulfilled.
  14. Testors products being discontinued?

    Ever since I used Tamiya and Gunze paints, I have felt Testors colors belonged to an era long gone by. So I m not sad at them going. However, if it was MM Metalizer they were discontinuing, that would have been very sad.
  15. AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Totally wrong marketing strategy. Their target customer is confused and frustrated. No matter how good their product will be, its this experience that will leave a bad taste.
