    MiG-21F-13 Modelsvit 72nd scale

    They have always showed some innovative molding. Some of the detail on their earlier MiG-21 kits was very nice especially around the exhaust nozzle.Looking forward t this kit even though I am a later MiG-21 fan.

    Mission Models Polyeurethane Intermix gone bad?

    They have some great tutorials on You Tube and on their website has some tips on as well. Trick is to use their thinner and it's going to look a lot thicker than what you are used to. I usually go with 10 drops of paint, 2-4 drops of thinner and say 4 drops of poly. I spray at 10-15 psi usually around 12.

    The poly additive is not mandatory.

    F-15SA unique features

    I'm sure y'all already know this but the original F-15A had provisions for the outer wing pylons. They were to be used for ECM pods, that's why you see the very early F-15 kits with those pods and outer wing pylons. however it was determined that they could put the same ECM gear inside the aircraft and not have to use the pod. So it seems like the wing always had the structural provisions for the pods and now these later versions have the wiring to hang missiles on them.

    Mission Models Polyeurethane Intermix gone bad?

    I have heard it reacts badly to cold storage. I have had some for over a year and it stays in my basement and i have not had a problem.

    F-35 news roundup

    Same way in the AF, Had to keep the numbers up, especially fun at the end of the fiscal year when you had no money to order parts (we did, but we couldn't spend it yet) and we had to take a tire off of a jet that was down for extended maintenance and put it on a flier. Of course the next day when it was a "new" year we had to change that tire on the broke jet! Some times we wanted to kill the pro sup!😀

    UPWiND - new metal landing gear sets

    I think Pewter is a lot more stiff than the crap that SAC uses. I think that's just pot metal with a lot of lead in it.But I am no metallurgist!

    F/A-18C's without wing insignia?

    It happens more than you think, depot forgets to paint it on. Heck our unit had one with the National insignia painted on backwards!

    UPWiND - new metal landing gear sets

    It looks similar to the metal that AMK used on their deluxe MiG-31 kit and standalone Landing gear kit. If so Great!! that was nice stuff, good details and strength.
  14. Why are you letting this bother you?? It is a marketeers job to hype it's companies product. it is your job as a consumer to see through the hype and make a well informed choice on how to spend your money.
