  1. Amazon claims to have three of these kits https://www.amazon.com/Academy-Model-Kit-Rokaf-Plane/dp/B00JF2PSQA/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3U9QJ5RYW2SBW&dchild=1&keywords=1%2F48+academy+f-4d&qid=1607817588&refinements=p_85%3A2470955011&rnid=2470954011&rps=1&sprefix=academy+f-4d%2Caps%2C188&sr=8-1 available to be delivered on December 15. Scalemates claims this kit was released with "new parts", so I don't know if this ROKAF release is suitable to build a USAF F-4D(obviously at least, USAF decals would need to be procured). A quick comparison
  2. A great recommendation! Especially since, it is, more likely than not, it should be still available at a local Hobby Lobby. Where, you could use their daily coupon code for 40% off the retail price!
  3. CurtB trying to save you the search time: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/268241-great-wall-hobby-148-f-15 ....truly a trip down memory lane...... but wait.....there's more: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/273138-announcement-from-great-wall-hobby-on-their-148-f-15bd-kit/
  4. What a shame. They "market" a good number of unique products, and I know I would order ~$100.00 worth of parts if they would be available.
  5. On top of the sage advice from the above folks, I use the following: 1: https://www.midwestairbrush.com/paintmixer.html This paint mixer really has saved my wrists from all the bottle shaking I used to do. 2.a https://www.iwata-airbrush.com/pistol-grip-moisture-filter.html and 2.b https://www.iwata-airbrush.com/moisture-filter-with-regulator-and-gauge.html or similar (less expensive alternatives are available) After trying to spray on a hot humid day here in PA a few years back, and experiencing paint splatter I went with two moisture traps
  6. I have had the best luck contacting them via email.
  7. I fear you are right. I seem to have restarted the hobby a year too late, a few years back, to purchase anything from them. Too bad no one has purchased their molds for their f-16 bang seats. they seemed to be the best on the market. PLUS they were planning on a A-10C cockpit for the monogram kit, just one example of some of their tasty bits that I would purchase now. Does anyone know why they have faded away?
  8. Just wondering if anyone has any info if they are still in business or not. I emailed them months back and have not received a response, plus their website hasn't been updated in a few years (seemingly). Thanks!
  9. Check this link out. http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/303049-obsession-with-fs-36170-who-got-it-right/
  10. Perhaps this comparison can be helpful: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/182077-the-sufa-showdown-hasegawa-vs-kinetic-148-f-16i/
  11. I know the discount was applicable ibetween 2013-2016. Thathow I got mine for40% off. Though I thought the sticker price was higher, near 180:
  12. I am sure hobby lobby was told by iwata to not allow the 40%. Can’t blame iwata on desiring to maintain their floor pricing. It was a nice loophole while it lasted.
  13. sprue brothers sell eduards "overtrees" essentially, ONLY the kits sprues, no boxart, decals, instructions. they do have this one in stock: https://store.spruebrothers.com/product_p/edu08221x.htm
