  1. From a marketing and sales stand point, I think it makes sense. Release the less popular version first to get as many sales as you can from it, then release the popular version. If the J/L was released first, I bet fewer F/Gs would have sold. Rodney
  2. Yeah, I did the same. Definitely, want to build one if not two of this version. Rodney
  3. With everything going on, I was looking for a quick build. The Trumpeter JF-17 seemed like a good kit and got it down. For some reason, the I find the shape of this aircraft interesting. Also, I got inspiration from Aigore in this thread http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/254336-jf-17-thunder/ The kit is ok. You have to test fit most pieces and do clean up on the parts. My intent was to do a closed canopy but it'd did fit well enough to go that route. So, last minute change. I used Caracal decals. Thanks, Rodney
  4. Sure. Will do. They were nice decals went down great! Part of the reason I built this kit. Rodney
  5. It is. Maybe more air forces will purchase it and it'll get more visibility.
  6. Overall, it's a good kit. There are a few places that could be improved or I need to be better at.... The exhaust are fitted prior to glueing the fuselage halves together. On the next one I build, I'll try to modify the exhaust to be painted and glued on at the end. The split flaps were a pain to glue on. I saw a suggestion where to glue the top flap to the top half of the wing and bottom flap to the bottom prior to glueing the wings together. Eduard supplies a photo-etch piece that simulates the spring that holds the canopy in the open position. The part was either way too short or I had it too far open. I'm not sure if any of this changed on when Eduard re-engineered the kit. Thanks, Rodney
  7. Will it be sold by the normal retailers or how do we order one? Thanks, Rodney

  9. Just finished the Eduard Bf 109G-6 in 1/48. This was from the original release that was slightly sized wrong. Most of the marking are painted on using masks I made with the Cameo. The decals for the eyes gave me some trouble and I ended up painting the red around the edge. Weathering was done with oils and pigments. I still need to practice with both. I struggled with some of the photo-etch. Not completely happy with this build but happy to be done! Feedback welcome. Thanks.
  10. That is awesome. Great build and painting.
  11. Collin, That came out great! I like that green over the original scheme. Looks like your paint skills were up to the task. I just got this kit, what are the areas to watch out for that you mention? Thanks, Rodney
