    As long as it flies...
  1. Mike, Try contacting Glen, he's (I believe) a top guy with Kitty Hawk, I think his username is Kagnew or something like this. I had the same issue with numerous short-shot parts and those silly folded sprues that deforms certain parts (which will break when straightened up), all in the same kit. I believe the only way to awaken them is to make it public on Facebook or contact Glen here. Regards
  2. Hi JP, I have one for sale if you're interested, never started, MIB, pm me if interested. Regards, Steven
  3. I'll check with David if something can be done about that.
  4. Then there's the fuselage cross section which is said to be too rounded. The detailing overall, however, looks to be absolutely superb. Looking forward to reading a detailed review when the kit's available. In the meantime, I'll get the Airfix kit, looks like an "again" improvement over previous kits, in terms of recessed details, etc.
  5. But wasn't the Nimrod tooled before Hornby stepped in in Airfix ?
  6. Do you need Fine Molds's too ? I can measure it Sunday.
  7. I remember the AMK fuselage was said to have less area rule than the Kinetic fuselage, however I don't know which one is right.
  8. Only 55$?!?!?! For such a large/detailed/accurate kit, I'd say it's the bargain of the year. It's even cheaper than KH's MiG-25 which can't compete in terms of... everything.
  9. A face only a mother could love... Terrible looking front section, and probably all the rest.
  10. The recessed details look just fine, IMHO perfect balance between too subtle (I'm currently working on Tamiya's 1/48 Zero and wished some of the rivets were a tad more visible) and too heavy (Revell 1/32 new Spitfire anyone?), well done ! I believe AMK could easily rename to MustHave!, their attention to intelligent breakdown/detail/customer input mean that if they tooled a 1/381.62 Trabant, it would be a must have to me ;-) ! I only wish they get enough sales to continue developing great subjects. No matter what they release, I will buy it just for the sheer pleasure of the building experie
  11. New photos visible here : http://hobbyterra.com/product/ilyushin-il-86-aeroflot-airliner-huge-model-kit-in-1-72-scale-modelsvit-7205.html It looks like a beautifully detailed kit, and I like the possibility of having clear and realistic pax windows "à la Big Planes Kit", I just hope they include the masks for the windows coz they are not yet visible. Photos are not HD so difficult to say but the wheels look simplistic.
  12. Funny, I had the opposite feeling, this MiG-31's recessed details appeared to me much better and finer than on their Kfir. It's often said pictures tend to exaggerate recessed or raised details and even if, in this case, they appear a very sliiightly tad too heavy to me, I think they'll look just good IRL, but of course that's just my thought.
