  1. -FINISHED- WTB 1972 Revell 1/32 F-4J Phantom

    I've laid my grubby hands on one now, thanks for the offers!
  2. As title, looking for this exact boxing:
  3. White Landing gear and wheel bays.....Ugh!

    I use Vallejo Model Air White, straight from the bottle as it's pre thinned for airbrush and apply two, sometimes three thin coats. It dries almost instantly when hitting the surface so the coats are done almost immediately and it won't run anywhere. I've usually primed with Mr Surfacer 1000 or 1200 before, but any light grey would do.
  4. 1/35 MBT T-72

    No problem, happy to help :)
  5. 1/35 MBT T-72

    It's supposed to be "Soviet" The kit is so old that it's made with no real references available. The Zvezda is the Dragon molds, so not the same and probably better. Personally I'd go with Trumpeter or the new Meng, if I'd be building the ESCI/ERTL/AMT one I'd just not care what it is trying to be and build it generic soviet, just not worth the headache to go accurate with it. Here's a thread that mentions the kits, the thread predates the Trumpeter and Meng offerings http://cs.finescale.com/fsm/modeling_subjects/f/3/t/139343.aspx and here's a buildup! http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234960821-t-72-135-esci/

    Oh bad wording on me I just noticed, with the "all" part I meant the other makes he mentioned (all the same kit). Zvezda is apparently the Dragon kit even though Scalemates doesn't say so, and the same for the Italeri offering.

    All but the Tamiya T-72 was designed before the Soviet Union collapsed and are really full of errors. Personally I'd wait for the Meng T-72 or grab the Tamiya one which is apparently accurate for a specific East German version. http://www.meng-model.com/new.php?id=580 http://armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=167913&page=1
  8. Deceptive Site

    I'd like to see some real analytics instead of people commenting about user visits and retention without a real clue on the matter, I'd bet it wouldn't be pretty. https://gyazo.com/5b661444e073415a5389fad2620d1fda https://www.similarweb.com/website/arcforums.com
  9. ARC - browser warning of suspected Phishing

    Well you dumped that pesky Avast that is doing its job and bought McAfee, which is not showing you the warnings that it should? Great buy! :monkeydance:/>
  10. Deceptive Site

    Avast is now actively blocking the site citing HTML:Script-inf and URL:Mal2 coming to a total of 51 blocks.

    This is Google's Safe Browsing initiative, it's used by their own Chrome browser as well as Firefox. There's no question about if it is, they literally tell you when using their transparency report site. It's the www.arcforums.com domain, the main site is not affected.
  12. Deceptive Site

    It's Googles Safe Browsing that's flagging it https://www.google.com/transparencyreport/safebrowsing/diagnostic/#url=http://www.arcforums.com I bet it's the malware redirect that never got fixed
  13. Tanks with working suspension

    You need to look up reviews on the specific kits to be sure though. I'm building the new Takom T-55 AMV at the moment and had to do surgery to pose the suspension.
  14. Trumpeter question

    The bad rap is usually on the accuracy part, their kits that I've come across are all an excellent fit and build. I've hence refrained from recommending several nice kits since they're bogged down with accuracy issues. If only they'd get their research right like they seem to do more often than not with their armor kits... One comment on the intruder for the record, the cockpit is wrong in that the seats are not offset properly. They are not GRU-5 seats and the angles of the instrument panels are wrong as well, with the prominent cockpit area of the 1/32nd that's a large annoyance for me. I've been thinking about making a correction set but I'm always sidetracked with distractions.
