  1. I'd suggest shooting them an email to ask. We can only speculate. http://www.modelcollect.com/contactus
  2. I'm trying so hard not to build 1/48, but damn it's getting hard! Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  3. When I’m considering a kit that I know has errors, I like to look at photos of the model built without correction to see how bad it looks and then consider whether I can live with the errors. Here are a few builds of the Su-24 that may help you evaluate it. Britmodeller FineScale Modeler ModellVersium Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  4. That would make for a great boxed diorama! Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  5. Check out the Container Store if there's one near you. I really like their Stockholm line of storage boxes, but similar boxes should suffice. Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  6. I use Tamiya XF-2 white with maybe one part of the grey of my choice (such as XF-66) for every 10 parts white. The grey gives it just a little bit more opacity. dnl42 is correct, that multiple thin coats is the answer. Remember, just because the landing gear bays are white doesn't mean they have to be pure white. Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  7. Just this morning I wrote on the 72nd Scale Aircraft forum that Kursad seems to be consistently giving attention to 1/72 scale modelers whenever he can. I go to sleep tonight with great hope in my tiny heart.
  8. I've used them once and had the same experiences. Next time I use them I'm going to shoot a coat of Future over the decal sheet to see if that makes them somewhat easier to handle. Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  9. With the Hasegawa F-22 as good as it is, and with so many other aircraft in need of new-tool attention, a manufacturer would be foolish to invest in a new kit. IMHO. Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  10. I posted a (reasonable) list back in September. At least one of the aircraft (a 1/72 B-2) has been announced. Link Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  11. I'm still waiting on mine, too.
  12. I've been very happy with my iPhone. Never had a problem. Whatever phone you eventually choose, don't let yourself become addicted to it. Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  13. Motion thirded.
  14. If you want to do an F-15E but you're in no huge rush, I'd suggest waiting a bit. GWH has been aggressive in re-tooling several variants already, so it's not hard to imagine them doing an E within the next year or two. Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  15. It depends on how familiar the viewer is with the size of a P-51, the size of a Ford Mustang, and whether or not he's ever seen the two together. I'd guess that 95 percent of viewers wouldn't be able to tell there was a mismatch in scale. Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
