    Trimaster/DML Vs. old Eduard Fw-190A

    Wow, I’m surprised. I have to say that the original Eduard A kits have been a joy to build. Detail is excellent and pieces fit like a glove. Only filler was on trailing edge of wing to fuse for (by the flaps because the gap was too large). The tail is too think where it meets the spine but other than that they are gorgeous kits. And for the price the detail is unbeatable. Alignment can be tricky but you know how the saying goes: if you take your time it’s a real gem. I know nothing about the Dragon/Trimaster kit but detail looks decent. I highly recommend the Eduard A kits (and all the other Fw 190s they make).

    Appreciated, thanks! I’ll check out the Airfix B and Hasegawa E.

    Best 1:48 P-40?

    Educate me on the P-40. What’s the best 1:48 kit out there? I know of Monogram B, Academy C, Hasegawa E and N, and Mauve M/N (which Eduard reboxed).

    Revell 1:48 Tornados?

    Thanks guys for the replies. I thought it over and decided to purchase the Eduard limited edition “Goodbye Tornado” F.3 ADV. Its the Revell kit with some extra goodies and a very nice decal sheet. Thanks again for your opinions and information.

    Revell 1:48 Tornados?

    How are the Tornado kits from Revell? Detail? Fit? Engineering? Decals? Shape? I know nothing about the Tornado but looking at the F.3 ADV. Cool looking, would like to buy one! Not considering Hobby Boss; Revell only.

    I also had to publicly call him out here. It took a long, long time but he eventually met his end of the deal.
  8. Normal wear and tear, but in my experience tougher than paint (won’t chip or peel), and it’s designed to be walked on (for floor application). It may not be designed for model making or airbrushing but if you can pin down the variables (pressure, thin coats, etc) it sure works rather nicely. The hard part can be getting consistent results. But it works and sprays beautifully. Seeing as most military aircraft don’t have a high gloss finish, it’s unlikely that Future is your final coat of paint anyway. Edit: Not to mention that Future is “self leveling.” That’s due to the electronegativity of the ammonia I believe.
  9. Curious to know, chemically, how Future would oxidize. Can you explain? I’m going way back here to my college days, but I don’t think anything in Future would react to exchange electrons (either giving away exothermically or accepting from another element) and go through any oxidization or redox reaction.

  11. Same “ingredients” in the same order as my bottle of Pledge Floor Care Finish. The bottle of Pledge Floor Care Finish matched precisely my previous bottle of Future.

    F-15C/E exhausts 1/48 by KA models

    Just bought a set on eBay. $23.00, free shipping. No Augmenter lining, just the nozzles. Going to try them on the 1:48 Academy kit.

    Kinetic 1:48 F/A-18s

    So the C/D comes with the correct cockpit but the uncorrected vertical stabilizers?
