  1. Hobby Easy, another Hong Kong based retailer, is also showing it as available. https://www.hobbyeasy.com/en/data/x346brvwjpsvpzhxwz71.html?t=1700852593
  2. Post pandemic, the shipping charges are so high now, I cant buy anything from HLJ, for example. Lucky model is the same.
  3. Lucky model showing it in stock. https://luckymodel.com/scale.aspx?item_no=TA 61125
  4. Sorry. I might sound stupid here. What if Hasegawa, a non US producer of kits, issue their Hornet with VFMA decals? Do they need to get a trademark permission at manufacturing or at the time of selling? You may just ignore my question as I m trying to figure out how Marines decals could be produced by other manufacturers if there are such copyright laws. For example, AOA decals has some Marines decals for Phantoms.
  5. Is US Marines still flying Harriers? I thought they have been retired.
  6. Knowing Tamiya, there may be no later boxing. 😄
  7. What an impressive kit! Its instructions look wonderful and the quality of plastic is amazing. My favorite version of F-35.
  8. That is a welcome news. I have liked B version more than A. The B version with all its doors and bays open looks like some character from Transformers movie. 🙂
  9. The F-4B kit has the clear parts for F-4C/D or F-4J, it seems. But you never know with Tamiya.
  10. Finished these two kits recently. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235127812-italeri-westland-wessex-hu5/#comment-4724189
  11. The USAF link I shared only mentions F-15 though. Not F-16.
  12. The US Air Force site states only F-15 can carry GBU-39B Small Diameter Bomb Weapon System. Has there been any update about which Air Force jets other than F-15 can carry this weapon? I have F-16 in store for future build carrying this weapon but I m not sure if this weapons load will be realistic. https://www.af.mil/About-Us/Fact-Sheets/Display/Article/104573/gbu-39b-small-diameter-bomb-weapon-system/#:~:text=Once the weapon is released,to the desired impact point.&text=The F-15E Strike Eagle,and F-35 Lightning II. Are there are any US Marines or Navy
  13. And i wonder if this loadout is even permissible launching from carrier deck! 😀 To me, Phantom looks awesome with this kind of loadout. This is Phantom in Beast Mode (taking the term from F-35). This is why I built it like this.
  14. Tamiya's superb F-4B kit. Fit, quality of packaging, surface detail and overall presentation is all what we have come to expect from Tamiya. I have used the following accessories Eduard Triple Ejection Rack 648232 Eduard Multiple Ejection Rack 648227 Hasegawa Weapons Set A for Mk 82 bombs Furball Aero 48-076 decals True Details helmets The model was painted with Gunze Mr Hobby H315 and H316.
