  1. 1/48 - Sukhoi Su-35 "Flanker-E" by Great Wall Hobby

    Seriously dude.. Are you okay? Even if you want, you cannot get a GWH Su-35 without tinted canopy right now. It is clear that 1st batch of the production has both tinted and clear ones. 1 year from now you may need to think about it but if buy now it is all good. Also, frankly I agree with Gabor. if you are dropping a model because of canopy color which model can you buy?

    It looks very attractive :)Will buy one. When they bring up one with the Chinese decals, I will buy that one too. Cannot wait.
  3. The Last Jedi (Spoilers)

    Well, Leia using the force is smt I wanted to see but the execution was extremely poor. She looked like a Marvel superhero so yeah, not a star wars moment. Also, from a technical point of view I think the scene was really bad. It looked like she was moved by ropes from one side to another hahaha.
  4. The Last Jedi (Spoilers)

    I saw the movie for a second time, now, I officially hate it! SPOILERRRRRs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 1) I think Disney really ruined Luke's character. Luke showed nothing but perseverance and determination during everything we have seen until this movie. He was a "true" Jedi refusing to fight to his father and Emperor and by doing so turning his father back to light. This is the essence of him. He would never for a second would even think to kill his nephew. Simply NO WAY. 2) Lets assume for some reason Luke is done with "Jedi". I actually found this interesting. What I cannot understand is him giving up the "force". Force is the nature, it is what makes "you" and the whole universe. Luke was trying to understand more of the philosophy/the universe not turn his back to it. 3) I think writers for this movie was not able think something "clever" to bring back Luke from the "broken" self. What made him start to come back was the Princess Leia's message to Obiwan from R2. It was a simple trick which can affect the audience but an extremely weak one when you look at the big picture. It felt like R2 was wiser than Luke!!! Puked there. If you have to go with this idea, Luke's comeback should be when his dearest friend Han died. This way Han's dead would have meant something too. HUGE mistake. 4) Luke died alone for almost nothing. It broke my heart. Can you believe this is the end for Luke. I am extremely sad about this :( Side note, battle meditation was very common in extended universe. It was awesome to watch Luke doing it. In extended universe, I do not remember anyone dying because of exhaustion like Luke did. Also I fail to see what his death brought to story. 5) Whole Boyega story to Las Vegas was terrible. For the first time I got bored during a Star Wars movie.. I like the fact that some weapon sellers designed both First order tie fighters and x-wings though. That was nice. 6) Po is the a HUUUUGE failure, reason for many deaths and still chosen as a leader??? WTF? 7) For a jedi or sith training is everything. IF Rey has no prior training, it is a travesty that she is a master level light saber user ! puke to that too. 8) Missed opportunity: If Rey joined Kylo after he killed Snook and they were challenged by Luke in next movie that would have been PERFECTION! Alas morons @ Lucas/Disney missed it. Somethings I liked, Rey and Kylo fighting together was great. I love the scene where Rey throw the light saber which was caught by Kylo and instantly turned on to kill the guard by an "eye-shut". hahahaha that was satisfying. P.s. I still think Rey's parent will be *special*. I think Kylo was lying.
  5. The Last Jedi (Spoilers)

    I've just watched the movie... Very mixed feelings. I have not guessed 95% of things. It is full of surprises. I have seen it in 2D and may see it in an IMAX theater later. A little bit too much action and comedy. I was expecting a much darker/tragic movie frankly. It has some moments where I was very satisfied but it had stuff which was boring and unnecessary too. Worth watching. Better than Force Awakens.
  6. AMK 1/48 Kfir New Tool

    How did it work on other missiles then? Like R-33 ??
  7. Kinetic 1/48 J-15 kit

    Cockpit is the Su-33 cockpit. However, that is not a big deal for me. I am planning to have canopy closed. Number of missiles and especially pylons are bigger deal. Still a very very beautiful kit but could have been better. As shown before it comes with towing tractor which is a nice addition but I do not do dioramas so probably not going to use it.. It also has pilot figures but again I never use pilots in my builds. I guess many people will appreciate these additions.
  8. Never mind

    That is more of a facebook problem. I think it is their default setting..
  9. Kinetic 1/48 J-15 kit

    I got the kit. Unfortunately, as I suspected, the kit does not come with Chinese pylons apart from the wingtip ones. The instructions tell to use Russian APU-470s for PL-12s and APU-73s for PL-8s.. Bummer...
  10. AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    I want to have a couple. Like you still did not build one in 1/48 either. You should do your builds together and compare them for us ;)
  11. 1/48 - Sukhoi Su-35 "Flanker-E" by Great Wall Hobby

    It seems it will have both open and closed exhaust options, like that a lot. I guess no a2g weapons? Maybe a weapon set in the future? :)
  12. AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    As Keynes said.."in the long run we are all dead" that is why long term sucks. hahaha
  13. Kinetic 1/48 J-15 kit

    Mine is on its way! I will give an update here once I receive it.
  14. Kinetic 1/48 J-15 kit

    yeah... I was hoping to have this:
