  1. Looks like a really nice kit, but $85.00 is a bit steep for me. Looking forward to seeing builds posted. I'll be keeping an eye out on the second-hand market, though… I live in hope…
  2. Oh, boy! I guess it's time to get rid of my Modelcraft kit. I've got Modelsvit's XP-55 and I'm pretty impressed.
  3. That's an interesting detail.
  4. I've read that FS 36176 is a good match. In the Modelmaster line this is quite a bit darker than their FS 36270 "Neutral Gray."
  5. Looking forward to this one. I never did get around to picking up the earlier incarnations of the P-51H in 1/48, I am kind of surprised that it took this long to have a good one come along.

    I think that aircraft would be as much (or more) dangerous to its pilot as would the opposition… 🤨
  7. Don't forget that the non-modeler won't see many of the things we tend to be bothered about.They're just happy that you built a model of their aircraft. As long as there aren't really big errors (choose your own definition for that term) I'd let it go. As long as the paint and decal work looks good, they'll definitely be thankful for what you've done for them.
  8. This guy posts a lot over on HyperScale. He's got a lot of interesting detail and conversion items in his eBay store. IIRC he goes by hofnerbassman over on HS.
  9. Wow, that box art is really something. I'd love to have a Hi-Res version. That would make a great desktop background. That's a really good price for a kit of this complexity and size.
  10. It's very cool to see your whole process for creating this. Thanks for taking us along for the ride. 🙂
  11. On a test shot, I don't expect them to look crystal clear. I'm sure before production begins they'll get the final polish on the molds done.
  12. I suspect it may be a little too late for that. We'll have to deal (or not) with them ourselves. I'm up for one, need to start saving my pocket change to afford it. 🤪
  13. Do you paint that on or dip the part in it (ala Future)?
