  1. I had the same reaction! Very impressive kit 👍🏻👍🏻
  2. So my kit arrived tonight and I’ve been pouring over the sprues and instructions. This is my first ever ZM kit and I am really impressed with everything in the box. I like the history, notes, and F-4 facts sprinkled in throughout the instruction steps. I pulled out my Academy F-4C just to compare some of the refinement between the two kits. ZM wins hands down and the price reflects that I suppose. Anyways, well done Zoukei Mura! Steve
  3. Kursad, I received my Gunfighters Abroad decals today and - WOW! They are amazing! As a former TBolt flyer, I cannot tell you how much it means to me to have high quality decals for some of the jets I’ve flown (albeit without any cool nose art during the ‘11 and ‘13 deployments) and I had a bit of an emotional moment looking over the sheet (sounds silly, I know 😅). Thanks for capturing some history and making this very cool sheet! I am looking forward to building a bunch of F-15Es soon! Steve
  4. Good to know- thanks for the update Gordon. I plan on buying mine from you guys 👍🏻
  5. Quick question- Does anyone know if AMS Resin replenishes their inventory? I have been trying to locate a pair of their 1/48 F-111 seats and they are apparently sold out everywhere. I’m not sure if that was a limited run item or not 🤷‍♂️ Steve
  6. I can also confirm it’s the same plastic parts in the kit. The photoetch is updated/better in the Adlerangriff kit (not new parts, just better color printing) and you get Resin wheels. It’s a superb boxing! Steve
  7. Thank you. The men who flew these machines have my utmost respect! Thanks Rocat! It was a fun build to try new things ☺️
  8. Sprue Brothers 👍🏻👍🏻 https://store.spruebrothers.com/product_p/dxm81-7127.htm And I hear you on the markings...they are uninspired. Steve
  9. Hello Kurt, Yes, that’s exactly what I did except for the seat, which was painted and detailed separately to aid in attaching the seatbelts. It’s a bit of an awkward reach with the brush but I like to assemble and paint as many things in one shot as I can. You are right about the cool markings for this kit! It’s tough to just pick which ones to do. Steve
  10. I feel the same way. I’ll be picking up the DXM “Sea Camo” decals for sure. Steve
  11. I’m looking forward to seeing the vector engine built up!
  12. I am the worst at getting sidetracked on projects...but don’t worry, the F-111s aren’t totally shelved. Anywhoo- I started building the beautiful 1/48 Adlerangriff boxing of Eduard’s Bf 109E series. The kit lets you build one Bf 109E-1 and one Bf 109E-3/4. Most of the cool marking options are for the latter, so I picked up another Bf 109E-3 Profipack to do the marking schemes I want. And now, I have three 109s in progress 😂🤦🏼‍♂️🤷‍♂️ Pictures! The start - Interiors The included photoetch is more than adequate 👌🏻 The engi
