  1. Hi Raptor01! Did you modify its nose cone and how did you do it or you didn't because it looks fine for you? I also have that kit but has been sitting in my stash collecting dust because the nose cone just looks off to me.
  2. Obsession with FS 36170: Who Got It Right?

    That is true. I once tried spraying Gunze lacquer against Model Master enamel of the same FS# and they just don't look the same, I wondered how the hell could this happen!!
  3. 1/48 F-105D

    Hi! Does anyone know where I could still find decal sheet for the 1/48 F-105D specific for bare-metal versions? Thanks in advance!
  4. 1/48 F-105D

    Hi Ben! Thanks for responding. Bare metal or painted silver is no big deal for me. What I meant by bare metal was not the SEA camouflage. Thanks also for providing the links and explaining which is which, that certainly added to my knowledge. But what I was asking was where to buy. I had searched all the on-line shops that I know of but the decals were all gone.
  5. Great Wall customer service link

    Thanks for sharing!

    How do you get to the website of Lion Roar or what's their email address if I may know, in case I'll be needing replacement parts also in the future?
  7. This kit is really fine kit, but I hoped to get something noticeably better then Kinetic Su-33 or GWH MiG-29 SMT. I'm just wondering why the all-praise GWH MiG-29 could not be repeated or even improved further..........
  8. Okay. Thanks for the tip!
  9. Are the color callouts for this kit reliable & 100% correct, I'm referring to the Mr. Color paints, or do we still have to go out of our way to do our own research?
  10. some more F-35A help Please

    Beautiful jets!! Surely the RAM panels are there, but the height of the edges should really be almost non-prominent compared to its adjacent areas.
  11. Su-25 Frogfoot

    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!
  12. Word. Panel lines should also be part of quality control or checking....
  13. This one looks definitely a lot better, unless they are fictitious or made for pre-production batch; but even it's a pre-production run, it's still fine because KH kits are meant for pre-production or prototype Su-35s as some experts claimed.
  14. Rafale M Intake Trunking

    Thank you scotthldr for you input! It make my job easier now that there will be no more masking to be done.
  15. Rafale M Intake Trunking

    Hi! Does anyone have an idea if the intake trunking for the Rafale particularly the M version is painted in white or it has the same color as the airframe all the way in? The pictures I've seen on the net seem to have the same shade but it could just be the lighting effect from the sorroundings. Thanks in advance!
  16. Rafale M Intake Trunking

    I haven't seen this picture before and I'd say it's a very good one! The light reflection was just the right amount so that the true color around the demarcation line could still be seen clearly.. Thanks Jari!
  17. Rafale M Intake Trunking

    That's exactly one of the pictures I was looking at.
  18. 1/48 Hasegawa F-16 intakes and exhausts

    Yes Hasegawa please!
  19. 1/48 Hasegawa F-2A with ASM-3 & AAM-5

    Wow I'm definitely going to get this kit just to kitbash those missiles to dress my F-2A kit up!
  20. I wonder where those indistinct rivets/panel lines are going to? They just seem to disappear into the thin air.....
  21. Scale Model Shops

    Hi! Are there any Taiwanese modeler member on this forum who could recommend one or two largest hobby shops in Taipei. I'll be there in a few months time and will be doing some shopping for some model kits and paints.
  22. Trumpeter and Hobbyboss 2018 catalog

    I just hope that their J-15 will be a complete package with all the parts specific for a J-15 in it and not just most......
  23. YF-23 Black Widow

    Hi! I'd just like to ask if the right color to use for the USAF YF-23 Black Widow ( not the two-shade gray scheme) is really black or is it on the darker gray tone just like one of the manufacturers suggested FS36118? Please advise. Thanks in advance!
  24. F-35B Tail Markings

    Maybe they also wanted to make the identifications as stealthy as possible.....
