  1. Hi Berkut! I'll be needing some pictures of the nose and main gear bay and their struts to get an idea of what color to use for painting; but if you know d answer to it, maybe you'd like to share it to me. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi everyone! Just want to verify this especially with the experts. Is neutral Gray like Gunze 13 or Tamiya XF-53, as suggested by one of the kit manufacturers, correct for the wheel wells of Su-35/S, or any better or correct advice or suggestion would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  3. Yeah I think it would be a better idea to produce decals specific for the RAMs rather than putting all the masks on the entire plane and leaving behind a very small percentage to be painted on...just my personal opinion anyway...
  4. Hobbyeasy is located in Hong Kong, not Taiwan.
  5. Are there any reviews on the RoG/ICM MIG-25#3931 yet? Any links please?
  6. Which hobby shops, especially for Su-35? I checked on luckymodel and hobbyeasy but saw nothing.
  7. Any reputable on-line shops that carry those decals that you could recommend?
  8. Where is it????
  9. It's really not there.....
  10. Thanks for the quick response. Hope you'd also consider doing a dedicated "C" sheet sooner than later.
  11. Great! I'd get a couple for my B. Could any of the two be used on the C?
  12. Just counted...I've got 127 1/48 kits still in my stash, so I'm in no hurry to pre-order one right now. I guess by the time I'm on my 127th the regular run of AMK F-14 will be released the following month....
  13. Where did this kit go??? Isn't this supposed to come first before Su-35??
  14. I guess by this time, many modellers especially the expert ones have either reviewed or built the Hobby Boss or the AMK kits, could you guys please share which one between the two is a better kit, when all the pros and cons of both kits have been considered. Thanks in advance!
  15. I really don't think it's a good practice to be "telling" customers to pre-order then we will just doesn't sound right.....
  16. Many thanks Helmsman for the tip!
  17. Dark eggplant gray, what would be the closest FS or Gunze lacquer paint to use?
  18. If FS 36170 is the recommended color for the airframe and FS 36231 for the RAM panels, what would it be for the radome, if we're going to base on the picture posted by Crazy Snap Captain?
  19. Oh that one. I've seen it several times already but didn't bother to click on it coz I think it's a completely different webpage. Thanks for the info!
  20. Could you provide the link to this please. All I could find are 48005 for T-38A Talon & 48006 for Polikarpov I-16. Hope they would also make one for F-35C.
  21. The box says "accurate exterior" & "lots of surface details". The questions now are:: 1. Have they toned down the surface details and brought them closer to the real thing as compared to the Hasegawa F-22's "exaggerated" panels? 2. Have they come up with a new or better idea of highlighting the RAM panels in different hue vis-a-vis the airframe background?
  22. Hi everyone! I need to know if there is any brand/brands in the market that has an ENAMEL (not lacquer nor acrylic) burnt iron shade. if none, what enamel paint could I use to make the closest resemblance of it? Please advise. Thanks in advice!
  23. Geez, what negative? I was simply trying to tell Vark who tried to help that MM 1424 is not enamel but lacquer and I showed Vark who tried to help proof. Geez.....
  24. Any indicator on the box that it has indeed been corrected without checking the sprues?
  25. It's not enamel. It's lacquer-based. It's right there on the label - Model Master Metalizer Lacquer.
