    Sword 1/72 F3H-2 Demon nose weight?

    If it has three gear legs it gets nose weight, period.

    F-111F USAF Painting in 1986: TIFU

    Hahahahahah!!! Welcome to the real world. The T.O. was a rough guide at best.

    I think it's diamond shaped

    Anyone else building the Roden 1/144 C-133?

    What was causing the gap? The way the parts are broken down, it should be pretty easy to get the mating surfaces to match up by filing/sanding them.

    Did you see this? To me it looks similar (though not as thick) to the saddle antenna seen on EC-135C/J/P. Not complicated.

    Don’t bet on finding one. That airplane has been an RC-135S since 1983, and it’s not like photos of her with the SATCOM hump are exactly thick on the ground.

    Airfix new tool MiG-17F

    I’ve come to the conclusion that Airfix is aiming at the casual builder and doesn’t give a rat’s a** about accuracy. As long as it’s vaguely shaped like what it says on the box, the details contained therein don’t matter.

    Best Il-28?

    LOL. Apparently progress is pretty slow at Trumpeter. They must have put this with the 1/32 TBD on the release list. Early bird. Worm. All that.
  10. When do you anticipate shipping your decals Diego?? I really need that Finnish bird! Now we just need somebody to do a target tug stinger pod for it!

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    I just don’t understand the ongoing desire by so many people to shoot themselves in the foot. Knowingly and willingly.
  12. So you would rather have a lot of mediocre to really lousy kits than a few really good ones? It’s your money.

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    176 pages of blathering about how wonderful the kit is going to be in spite of copious evidence to the contrary. I’m not surprised.

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    That it is. But guess what? There is nobody on earth who is going to pursue fraud perpetuated by a company in China against individual consumers scattered all over the world, for money in the double digits to the left of the decimal point. So they can get away with it free and clear.

    AJSH-37 Viggen Correct Color Scheme

    Based on looking at LOTS of Viggen photos, it’s very clear to me that the paints used for the splinter scheme are very prone to color shifting and fading. They’re all over the map.
