  1. Barkhorn’s Bf-109G-6

    They are excellent kits, and I predict you will enjoy it thouroughly.
  2. Barkhorn’s Bf-109G-6

    I think it hasn't been necessarily proven either way, whether it was yellow or white. I think most people accepted it as white. That doesn't mean that yellow is wrong. Build it how you want it to be!
  3. Bummer. Still, the decals and resin. There's a chance the kits could turn out decent.
  4. I would argue *most* of Eduard's new releases are their own toolings. They do quite a few limited editions based on other manufacturer's kits, but still many of their limited editions are their own toolings. Hoping they're not the Trumpeter kits. But even if they are, the resin goodies and excellent decals will make them better options than the vanilla Trumpeter MiGs.
  5. 1:48 T-38

    Excellent. Thanks!
  6. 1:48 T-38

    What's the best kit in 1:48 for a T-38? No specific markings or version in mind. Just getting a feel for what's out there. Thanks!
  7. Question on hasegawa 1:48 F-16C

    It could probably also be built as a block 32.
  8. Mig-29 9.12 Slovak AF Digital Camouflage

    Weren't there decals for this scheme? Sorry, I don't know the correct colors.
  9. MiG-29 9.12

    Great info. Thank you everyone. I didn't anticipate Russian colors being such a hurdle. I'll start with the FS numbers recommended by GWH. Model Master is easiest for me to obtain. If it doesn't turn out, I'll go for Mr Color. Thanks!
  10. MiG-29 9.12

    Next build is GWH 1:48 MiG-29 Early version. It has color callouts in Mr. Color, and shows some FS equivalents. I'm not convinced the FS numbers would be good matches. C308/FS 36375 (Light Ghost Gray) C320+C325/FS 34227 (Pale Green) I don't think FS 34227 would be a good color to use. Is there an Akan or other specific color to early MiG-29s I could use? Looking for some direction here. Thanks!
  11. New Tool Bf 109G-6 from Tamiya

    Swing and a miss.
  12. New Tool Bf 109G-6 from Tamiya

    Don't need one? We didn't *need* a new 1:48 P-47 in 2002. Enter Tamiya. Homerun. We didn't *need* a new 1:48 F-16. Enter Tamiya. Homerun. We didnt *need* a new 1:48 F-14. Enter Tamiya. Homerun. See a pattern? Need it? Probably not. But it will be awesome and it will make BANK for Tamiya. Like the others have and will. Complain when a Bf 109 is announced, worship when an F-14 is announced. I'll continue to enjoy the progression and *amazing* kits Tamiya puts out.
  13. Tamiya Release Rumors?

    Absolutely not sarcasm. The Tamiya P-47s and F-16s are head and shoulders above the competition. Despite the market being flooded with options, Tamiya came out with a far superior kit in both cases. Same with the F-14. Plenty of quality kits, but Tamiya set a new standard. Bf 109 will be no different. Tamiya will knock it out of the park, and we will be begging for more versions until blue in the face.
  14. Tamiya Release Rumors?

    Tamiya's F-16s, P-47s, and now F-14 have outclassed any competition. So yeah, we really need new ones.
  15. AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Back on track: Why has AMK been so silent?
