  1. 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!
  2. 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.....
  3. Any indicator on the box that it has indeed been corrected without checking the sprues?
  4. It's not enamel. It's lacquer-based. It's right there on the label - Model Master Metalizer Lacquer.
  5. Which one has a better track record, in terms of accuracy and detail, from the kits they have produced so far?
  6. I'm confused, who is really giving us the F-CK-1, Freedom or AFV??

  8. Hi everyone! Lately I noticed some brown marks or discolorations on some of my flat-finishes jets, some are rounded and some are more dispersed and irregular in shape, found on different areas of the jet. I have tried to remove them by gently brushing it with brushes dipped in tap water, and also by gently scrubbing them with wet rags but to no avail. What exactly are those? How do I get it of it completely? Thanks in advance! I tried to attach pictures here but i just couldn't get it done.
  9. Just a little thought from the back of my mind, AMK mentioned that they will be releasing three versions of the MiG-25 during 2017 (straight from their Facebook last Oct. 6, 2016); I was deeply wondering how could this come into fruition when we’re already done with the first quarter of the year and the shadow of their physical Tomcats is still nowhere to be found.
  10. 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!
  11. Hi! I'd like to know if the nose and main gear bay doors of the F/A-18B Top Gun also have red edges. Can't find any pictures of the real jet's gear bays on the net. Any pictures of the areas on the real plane will also be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  12. Yup I know inert ordnances are painted blue.
  13. Thank you Joe for identifying the bomb!
  14. What were those blue-front bombs hanging on the underwing pylons?
  15. Thank you Adamitri and Phantom for your inputs as well!
  16. A very solid proof! Thank you very much John for your response and picture!
  17. Thank you foxmulder_ms for you help!
  18. Hi! Does anybody know exactly if the underside of the Su-30MK is painted white or very light gray? Thanks in advance!
  19. I also want it on the boxart!
  20. Will there be a single-seater of this in the future?
  21. Hi everyone! I'm planning to build the Ghost Viggen using the Aviation Workshop decal #48169, I'm wondering if I could just use the Tarangus SAAB JA37 Viggen kit #4803 OOB, since the Aviation specified that the Ghost Viggen belongs to the AJS-37 and not the JA37 from the kit? Thanks in advance!
