  1. Hi, Bryan. It helps a lot, thanks.
  2. Hmm... I ended up buying Eduard's 49076 set (in grey). The store has more types in stock (also in green) so I'll take a look, but I think I've seen an F-4S seat with grey belts, but it could be another version.
  3. Hi Larry, I'm still thinking if I should get it or not. Not because I don't think it will look better, but because I'm not sure if I want to saw a kit that costs almost 100 dollars (95 Euros here in Spain). That's a lot of money for me and I already feel a bit guilty about having bought the kit instead of saving the money 😑 Since the only people that will see the finished kit, apart from me, won't even know the name of the airplane, much less that it has a fuselage error, I think I can live in silence, knowing deep inside me that it's not accurate. Regarding the seat belts, I have just realised what Mingwin said. The HGW and Eduard sets are alike, but the Eduard ones are pre-painted.
  4. Cool. I didn't know this brand until now.
  5. HGW? I'm not sure which brand is that. Could you send a link to the product?
  6. Since the Zoukei Mura F-4S doesn't come with seatbelts, I was looking at the Eduard range, but I'm not sure if they are usable in the ZM kit, since they're made for the Academy kit (but I'm guessing they should, as it's just seat belts). Should I get the green or grey ones? I've seen photos with both. Best regards, Ricardo
  7. Hi guys, Is the GWH F-15C Oregon ANG a pre-MSIP II Eagle? Can I build an 80s jet OOB (with different decals, of course)? Thanks in advance, Ricardo

    1/48 Su-34 Kihbiny ECM pods

    Awesome! I have just ordered mine too.
  9. Hi all, before spending my money on the Hobby Boss A-10 in 1/48th, I was wondering if it's possible to backdate it to a pre-LASTE Warthog (circa 1985-86) and if there's an online list of changes/cuts/adds I'd have to do. Thanks in advance, Ricardo
  10. Thank you very much, Nikolay! Regarding the accuracy, I can't comment much other than the typical "it looks like a Tu-128", as I'm not an expert on this subject.

    A-10 Thunderbolt II in 1/48 scale: What Brand?

    Not to hijack the thread, but can the HB kit be backdated to a pre-LASTE Warthog?

    MiG-29 rudder backdate

    Yeah, you're right. I'll keep trying to find more photos of that particular aircraft. If I come up with nothing, I'll just have to take some "artistic liberty" and build it with the rudders as they are 😄

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    True, but at this rate, it's more likely we'll see my dog producing an accurate F-14 made of clay than AMK releasing its F-14 (accurate).

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Maybe AMK should just release a "Tamiya F-14 update" with only the parts for the moveable flaps, slats, bats, rats, maps, etc.

    MiG-29 rudder backdate

    Weren't the rudders updated in all aircraft in 1987?
