  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. Yup I know inert ordnances are painted blue.
  4. Thank you Joe for identifying the bomb!
  5. What were those blue-front bombs hanging on the underwing pylons?
  6. Thank you Adamitri and Phantom for your inputs as well!
  7. A very solid proof! Thank you very much John for your response and picture!
  8. Thank you foxmulder_ms for you help!
  9. Hi! Does anybody know exactly if the underside of the Su-30MK is painted white or very light gray? Thanks in advance!
  10. I also want it on the boxart!
  11. Will there be a single-seater of this in the future?
  12. 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!
  13. I'll watch out for the strake and thank you for the additional info esp. on the cockpit!
  14. Thank you guys for your inputs!
  15. Hi everyone! What is best kit now in the market for the Su-25 in 1/48, in terms of detail and accuracy, aside from Eduard version which is already out of sight? I read about the review on the Revell #5857 and it says that the kit is at the prototype level and not the operational category. Thanks in advance!
  16. Okay. Thank you very much for your inputs! :)
  17. Is the Must Have 1/48 Rafale C any good? Never heard nor tried their kits before. How was it compared to the ROG Rafale #4610/4517? http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10424261/20/1
  18. Whoa that's definitely crashed minus burning situation right there. I think sellers should start taking into consideration the integrity of the kits' boxes for shipment and not making excuses all the time that it's the fault of the post offices or couriers, because the money we paid includes the integrity not only of the contents therein but also the outer shell which is the box itself.
  19. Thanks Ken for your response!
  20. Hi Ken! May I know what color did you use for the Platan? Or what is the correct color for it?
  21. Hi! Could anybody gimme the right or closest color to use for the intake truncking (inner portion) and the wheel wells for Su-34 Fullback please. I am aware that they don't have standard colors or FS or anything like that, but even looking at the net pictures, I still could not get a solid decision for it. Does this platan - http://defence.pk/threads/su-34-fullback-russias-hottest-bomber.399742/page-3 look painted or is it metallic? The shades of those two look complete different. What color is that? Thanks in advance!
  22. Could you share the kit/box numbers of those italeri & Testors kits?
  23. Are there kits any good? Never heard of the manufacturer.
  24. Many thanks for the insights, Jeffrey.
