  1. Hello, I have 2 kits, ref. 72118, condition is new. Feel free to message me if still interested. Cheers 😉
  2. The detailing and part finesse is absolutely amazing, moulding quality looks splendid ! This kit looks to be really something. Well done Aviation Art !!!
  3. In 1/144 scale, I have their Bombardier CRJ-200, Canadair Challenger and Bombardier CRJ-700. If I remember correctly, the CRJ-200 was their first venture in 1/144 scale. A nice little kit that felt a bit crude, think of short-run, low moulding definition on small parts but still very buildable. The Challenger was a MASSIVE improvement, especially in the small part moulding definition. The CRJ-700 again added a bit more finesse to the moulding quality, to the point I consider it as good as a Zvezda kit (so much better than Revell's stuff). Decals could be glossier, they are actually uniformly flat. This 757 kit should be quite something, and I too hope for early and late RR engines. Silver Seraph
  4. Hello, Big Plane Kits just announced a Boeing 757-200 kit in 1/144 : at long last a modern and accurate 757 kit in styrene. https://m.facebook.com/BigPlanesKits/photos/a.1510613519216386/2595147927429601/?type=3&theater These guys really rock !!!
  5. Hello, Big Plane Kits are to release a Boeing 777-300ER in 1/72 : http://bigplaneskits.com/blog/ 3D design hopefully completed this year 2020 so hopefully released in 2021. I cannot wait : I was about to order Modelsvit's 1/72 Il-86 for its detailing level but I will now patiently wait on this gigantic 777 kit. BPK's Boeing 737-200, Canadair Challenger CL-600 and Bombardier CRJ-700 are IMHO absolute stunning kits. The following Airbus A319, Boeing 737-800 and 777-300ER kits should be equally mouth-watering.

  6. You leave me with the feeling there is something personal between you and this Airfix designer. You made your point numerous times on many different forums, with sentences written in capital letters, bold letters, red letters, sometimes all 3 at the same time, that this kits was not at your taste. I will not go that far saying "no kit is perfect then it should be accepted as is" but... I am curious as to what you want to achieve by repeating the same things numerous times here in there ("they had access to the real MiG-17 but they flawed, why, Why, WHY, etc") ? I am genuinely curious.
  7. I just checked the pictures on FB, full definition, the detail treatment is amazing, perfectly defined and not too wide. I can spot an improvement with every new release from them. It is nice to get exotic subjects from these new brands, but at such overall quality level ? Well done Modelsvit !!!
  8. Sukhoï Su-57 😱🤤 ?!?!?! Lockheed C-130 😱🤤 ?!?!?! 1/144 stuff 😱🤤 ?!?!?! That is for sure one hell of a nice program 👍🏼 !
  9. I can see AMP or Mikro Mir doing a 1/144 B-52.
  10. Oh man, that looks STUPENDOUSLY nice on 1st sight !!! Thanks for the photos 👍 !
  11. IMHO, not picky. Just different people with different interests. And both (the ones ecstatic about this kit vs the ones expecting better) are probably right. I do not like what I see overall (and I am dead certain it is not an optical illusion or lighting/reflection stuff) but I will probably buy one kit just for the dirty wings and sell the remainder. I just hope the recessed details on the wings are not that far off Tamiya's recessed details finesse.
  12. Wow, I like this MSRP of USD 118 much better 🤤 !!!
  13. I think he edited the post, what I read wasn't this "prediction". Anyway I am happy if this new release from HKM turns out to be more accessible. With the todays increase in everythings cost and apparent great level of detail, one could not reasonably expect a new tech 1/48 B-17 priced under USD 100, but USD 280 felt like we really had to deserve it.
  14. I think I saw the MSRP circulating over Master194, USD 280.- ! I was expecting it to be priced a little under USD 200.-... to hell, if done correctly (the nose, please Please PLEASE get it right) I will certainly get one.
  15. I am almost sure they will not go bombastic this time. Like play it safe. Anyway still happy we now have even more choice when it comes to Starfighters. Despite it's few flaws, I loved Hasegawa's rendition. Kinetic's kit looks a tad better (I will get mine, JASDF, next week) and now AMK : please please get these panel lines a bit more realistic.
