  1. Doesn't look as if they addressed the 'step' just in front of the windshield (the part just behind the first masking tape on the nose).
  2. WOW! Your Hasegawa Raptor looks awesome! If it weren't for the stand and the background, I would have thought it was the real thing!
  3. Here's a Hasegawa 'D' for sale : https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10124029 an 'E': https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10045633 And a 'F': https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10043410
  4. Your website is very interesting to read. I enjoyed your comments on the reviews of kits, especially on the boxarts of the IJN Judy & the Mi-6P Hook. https://adamrehorn.wordpress.com/model-kits/out-of-box-reviews/ls-models-1-75-yokosuka-d4y2-suisei-judy-oob/ https://adamrehorn.wordpress.com/175-kvz-mi-6p-hook-oob/ Also, your 'Gold Rush' van is fantastic!
  5. In case no one gets back to you: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10220553 from: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10220553
  6. Yup: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/0f/P-8A_of_VP-5_and_Japanese_Kawasaki_P-1_at_NAF_Atsugi_in_2014.JPG/1024px-P-8A_of_VP-5_and_Japanese_Kawasaki_P-1_at_NAF_Atsugi_in_2014.JPG Dang, those Foxone kits look so good, esp the 1/72 one with the flaps & slats lowered....like it means business. But at that price......I think I'll wait for Aoshima or someone else to make an injected molded one.
  7. Thanks Gene Most informative. I didn't know the Vietnam era helmets had the visor-cover made of plastic. I had always assumed it was some sort of metal. Great to learn something new. This forum needs a 'Like' button. 😀
  8. The Vietnam bird's boxart looks cool but I'm not sure if the pilots of those era wore that type of helmet. https://scontent.fsin5-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/133248035_3576153692498942_2765536230929525075_o.jpg?_nc_cat=105&ccb=2&_nc_sid=730e14&_nc_ohc=ejkO5aKeHSUAX9jkHgF&_nc_ht=scontent.fsin5-1.fna&oh=43ad4c4c37d4a344e9deedaa8979562e&oe=600DC265 Gene, your opinion?
  9. Have you been watching Marie Kondo? 🤣 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9AvWs2X-bEA Did throwing away those models "spark joy"?
  10. You might be able to use Caracal Early Tomcats decals if you are making the Phoenix Missile System bird: http://www.caracalmodels.com/products/images/cd48168.jpg http://www.caracalmodels.com/cd48168.html or download and print the large marking from here: http://www.hyperscale.com/2019/galleries/f111b72bg_1.htm
  11. Get him to watch "The Final Countdown". Then buy him the Tamiya F-14A with the Jolly Rogers scheme: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10411171
  12. I agree. Trumpeter is best avoided. I quite like the Italeri, ESCI, Revell, AMT F-100D and F kits. ESCI especially were way ahead of their time when it came to the panel lines. Very nice panel details.
  13. That looks great! I love the subtle weathering effect
  14. Thanks for the link. Good read and nice pictures
