  1. Hannants has them listed at 107.5 pounds and presale at 96.75 pounds $ 186.99 CDN YIKES!!! https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/RV3850 Ken
  2. Well I don't think Rustoleum's the reason for the decline as they bought Testors back in 1984. The problem as I see it is that the hobby has shifted from a general one to a more specialized one, you see that guy's like AK, Mig and Vallejo are putting out stuff left, right, and centre, Testors hasn't kept up. As far as making money well if your'e selling something for $3.00 you have to sell A LOT !!!!! and I've seen certain colours sit on hobby shop racks for years. One last thing is that the Hobby in North America is an older crowd compared to Europe so more expansion across the pond. Sad to see them go but sometimes that's how it goes. Ken

    Addicted HAH ! I've built 4 Tamiya razorbacks have two on the workbench 3 bubble tops and six in the stash never mind my 4 Hasegawa Jugs I need help I'm hooked
  4. The problem with "factory sealed " kits is that you don't know whether everything is in the box there have been cases in the past where stuff is missing or damaged, so it doesn't add value in my opinion actually might detract. Ken
  5. Flight footage here public flying taxi lets be honest 1% of public
  6. Well i would imagine that cutting the moulds in China would cut costs by a big margin, if you look at Trumpeters catalogue the have over 1500 kits, granted there are a lot variants but still a massive list. Their costs have to be dirt cheap. Ken
  7. Glad it worked out at least it's on an easy to do over part

  13. I know this is more of a jet place but this is the iconic WW1 airplane I'm sure a lot of us will be interested supposed to be WNW molds as Meng did the tooling https://www.themodellingnews.com/2020/06/preview-meng-takes-mantle-with-new.html#more Ken
  14. I thought I'd post some info things look a little troubling. I've been following the opening up of places and see Hays county where San Marcos is has had 540 new cases in the past week, 666 current active cases 400 in San Marcos. I would keep an eyeball on this only 6 weeks away to the Nats. By comparison my city Winnipeg has 4 active cases and more than ten times the population.
