  1. Pretty rough bill to pay here, chaps: Randomly reading Business Insider, I never thought I would come up with this story. Here's light Sunday reading: http://www.businessinsider.com/boeing-737-fuselages-fell-into-a-montana-river-2014-7
  2. Yep Eric! We are talking in the same trend. Communicating trough a screen is always a tweak to insure we pass the correct message. To sum up, I completely agree with MoFo in and this sums up well the whole situation: "And yet nobody along the line batted an eye, or thought that maybe they should give it a second look. The parts were printed, examined, okayed, cast in resin, test prints examined and okayed, put into full production, several hundred sets poured, bagged, boxed up and shipped out and at no point along that chain did anyone think "hmmm, I wonder if our customers will be mad that
  3. Sorry to all, but I could only return now to this topic. You see Eric, please allow me to disagree. Let's say "1/48" does not mean seeing something seen 48 meters away. An object 96mm high and 48 mm wide in your left hand can be represented in your right hand in 1/48 scale by having 2mm high and 1mm wide. And they are both at close contact. I am very tolerant, specially to newcomers that have a will to do something new and gladly this is the case. In the case of the Alphajet everything really seems to be the best possibly available. Kinetic kit is frankly fantastic, Kabuki markings too, deca
  4. I don't usually do this, but today I was with some great old chaps that are pure Aircraft modelers, and showed them this miniature. They were so amazed, I really felt I had to share it with the great guys I know here. Friends are for life, so is this kit! Appreciate it well folks. Sculture by Seung-Yeop Lee and painting by Sang-Eon Lee. Coming soon to a model shop near you :) And here's a page of references to bookmark :) http://www.themodellingnews.com/2014/01/go-on-you-think-of-better-title-than.html#more Cheers! And happy Sunday to all!
  5. Well, I don't know where to start. First, I red reviews highly praising the resin parts of Wingman Kfirs. Then, reading this topic, the parts are everything but great. I would like to add something, now about the Alpha Jet. First, Andreas, allow me to congratulate you for the initiative of releasing the kit of the Portuguese Alpha's. Also, allow me to add that the decals are greatly produced and the Kinetic model is, frankly awesome. I don't know why the Kinetic Alpha Jet is not subject of many topics a bit all around, perhaps because the subject itself is not so "popular", but it is a
  6. Janne outstanding reply! :)/> thanks a lot! Just forgive me the delay, my week was a complete mess! But here's the weekend! :)/> All the best to the next steps! You have two winners coming up! Keep the excellent work!
  7. Janne you're really helping so many of us! I don't know how many modellers will follow this topic in the years to come, but sincerely it will become an one stop reference regarding what Kfir to buy! Marvellous work! Please, if I can ask: In the images it is visible some indents and some thin putty lines around the bottom nose of the AMK Kfir. The Kinetic kit seems much cleaner. If I can ask, and speaking about your own experience, how would you compare the fit of both models? Thanks! And is it me or are the trailing edge movable surfaces dimensionally slightly different? At least the AMK
  8. Hey Janne! This is public service at it's very best! Many thanks for this sharing and for all your altruism. I was really divided reflecting about which one to buy, this topic really helps immensely! Keep this energy until the end! Tack så mycket :D
  9. I rarely do this, however, for future memory take a look at these two. I really lack adjectives to properly qualify this: http://cgi.ebay.com/Jagdwaffe-Colours-Battle-Britain-Phase-Four-/250849854336?pt=Non_Fiction&hash=item3a67d10380#ht_913wt_654 http://cgi.ebay.com/130549496168?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fshop.ebay.com%3A80%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dp5197.m570.l1313%26_nkw%3D130549496168%26_sacat%3DSee-All-Categories%26_fvi%3D1&_rdc=1#ht_500wt_901
  10. How about this great way to start 2011: http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/item.php?product-id=60321 Let it roll! (and better start save some pennies right now! :-) )
  11. I don't know if these shots can be helpful to you. I made these images some time ago, in a step by step f-16AM and especially to show that even with the kit plastic parts you can achieve fine results. If someone would ask me if there is some kind of "secret", I would reply: Only one – pin a large size photo of the real turbine near your airbrush. The rest is easy Colors are Alclad Jet Exhaust, Burnt Metal and Dark Aluminium applied until I can match the photo in front of me. In these shots the ceramic white interior of the turbine and the blue ring don't appear yet. If you need mo
  12. One more help please guys, regarding the F-14D NE-100 from VF-2 during operation Iraqui Freedom: This well known veteran as displayed here, in this supperb painting by Mike Postlelthwaite: What seats this aircraft had? On page 57 of the previous book there is an image of it with the canopy opened and they look SJU-17's with the spike canopy breakers installed, but due to similarities with the SJU-5 would like more opinions. Second, any of you already attempted to use the Bomb rails of Tamiya 1/32 Tomcat (only in the Black knights edition) in the belly of the Trumpeter F-14D? Would love to
  13. What a great reading too FalkeEins! Thanks for sharing it! :wacko:
  14. Guys, let me just say that I also thought alone about the under wing twin Mg-151 20mm gun pods. They are available at least in this Dragon kit: The parts are included in sprue "E" They looked like this in the real aircraft: To my knowledge the 20mm gun pods are not available in the Tamiya, Eduard and Hasegawa proposals but frankly I don’t know all boxes released, specially Hasegawa, because as we know, releases permanently re-boxes of existing tooling with different markings and contents. So I would like to hear if you know alternative Wurger boxes with the Wb-151 gondolas. The ot
  15. Thanks guys! I liked the article a lot too! Hope many more in the near future! Matt, the underwing 20mm gun pods, to my knowledge, are not present neither in Eduard, Hasegawa or Tamiya kits. But I don't know all boxes, so I hope I am not beeing incorrect. You can find very nice images of these gondolas in the first of four Kagero Monographs about the FW-190. Go to page 29, and then just read along! :) Regarding your excellent description about your experiences in flight sim's. Those experiences brought to my mind the excellent Osprey Aviation Elite book "Sturmgruppen": The book has in
