  1. Who says dirt is bad? Good looking worked over CF-18 you have. Great photography as well.
  2. That strikes me too, but I think a wide angle lens setting was used? That aside, great looking Eurofighter you've complete. Very pleasing overall finish.
  3. www.scalemates.com is a very good resources for checking kits and accessories. Although it not not have EVERY thing that was ever made, it does a lot of them.
  4. I go along with the others, those Dayglo's are great looking. Excellent build.
  5. Nothing to say but good building and photos, I like it.
  6. Ok I'll let you guys figure it out.
  7. I am quite sure company funding has dried up.
  8. The author's first language is Japanese. Keeping in mind translation and this is only a blog on his part, taking %100 on everything he mentions may be a bit too hopeful. Like every company in today's environment, future plans can not be cast in stone. If each kit sells like crazy then it could be worth the while to invest in tooling etc..
  9. I do recall them stating on their pre-order page that no shipping would be charged, but I had always assumed that would only apply to their US based customers. Now I've gone to their new US website and it does say free shipping to continental US customers only.
  10. Keep in mind doing business in Japan is different than other parts of Asia. Prices of labour and production are vastly different. Over the last few years even Japanese owned businesses seek to have production done outside of Japan. So it all depends how you view it. Myself, I don't mind keeping the Tamiya monster fed, but I don't expect everyone to have the same views.
  11. I love the detail of the canopy and sills. The actual aircraft to me always seemed to have a closed in feel in that area and most kits did not really represent that to me.
  12. Sorry, I was referring to specifically the "S" model mentioned and shown in the blog. Yes I knew most were aware of the upcoming J release.
  13. Sounds like that will be the last they would do, and understandably, the biggest investment for retooling. But still think it will have no problem selling.
  14. I am a bit surprised nobody has mentioned anything about this yet. http://www.zoukeimura.co.jp/en/sentiment/oyajiblog_088.html Personally I am waiting for the 1/48 D but will have to see my bank balances at the time. The S was great with the start of the low viz markings era.
  15. I'm glad the Mad Riveter didn't find work at Tamiya, it looks great.
