  1. There are more units now. VFA-147 VFA-97 VFA-86 VMFA-314 VMFA-311 Unfortunately, there is still the Kitty Hawk kit, which is OOP. C'mon Tamiya.
  2. Thank you again. That helps! I was hoping I would be able to print the carrier part 2 product for a reasonable price, but I guess it's kind of complicated.
  3. Thank you for the advice! Is there a type of printer that I need to use to ensure quality?
  4. I have very little knowledge of 3D printers or this product. https://www.remj.co.uk/ They have an extensive product catalog. I assume this is a new concept - selling 3D files so you can print your own parts. I'd have to purchase a 3D printer. Anyone have any thoughts? How easy is it to print? Could there be quality/accuracy issues? Thanks!
  5. Yuck. I love the F-35 but hate hump on the back of the B. I'd rather have the C.
  6. Thanks Andy! I ended up using a little less than 1/2 teaspoon.
  7. I was going to mix the whole bottle for 36170 as I would like it to be consistent. I think it's a 5:1 ration for LP15/LP59. I thinks that 20%? The bottle is 10 ml. So would I add 2 ml of LP59?
  8. What's the best way to determine the mixing ratios that Tamiya provides in their assembly guide? I am building an F-35A. Thanks!
  9. Thank you for confirming. Mr. Leveling thinner is great!
  10. I am going to try Tamiya's laquer paint. I was wondering if I can use Mr. Leveling Thinner as I have a lot of it. Or do I need to purchase Tamiya's Laquer thinner?
  11. I was in high school in 1983 and my skills were very basic. I picked one up and built it. At the time I thought it was the best kit ever made.
  12. I masked a Kittyhawk F-35C and it was a time consuming process. The easiest is to go with a late F-35A, unless you like the look of the RAM being a different color.
  13. Thanks for the info! I was under the impression that the Litening TGPs were primarily used by the ANG. I thought the Sniper was the more advanced but I see that the Litening has been updated.
