  1. Not a plane. Something a bit different...
  2. Finished this up last week. Kitty Hawk SU-35 in 1/48. The kit itself is fantastic. No fit issues. As a matter of fact, the intakes were a dream! And I HATE intakes. This is well engineered kit, with excellent quality. The exhausts are fantastic BUT they only give you the option of having them straight back, as in flight or powered up. There is no drooped option. I had to get a resin set to be able to do that. Regardless, for the plastic, an A. The directions. Graphically, excellent. Instructional wise, they suck. Even with careful examination I had to take apart a few
  3. The review HomeBe posted is informative. I will have to check these out.
  4. I know there have been a few sets done. I know Hasegawa also had a boxing of this as well. I did notice some things that were not totally accurate with Revells decals, but they are fairly close. I was happy with them.
  5. The decals are thick. Which I liked in this case. You have to do a lot of fiddling around with the large ones to get them in place. If they were overly thin, they would not have stood up to the handling. Use Solvaset. Micro set is NOT going to be strong enough. I applied the Solvaset, let it sit for a few minutes and wiped it of. Next day the decals were settled down well.
  6. Got mine yesterday. Looks like a good kit. Clearly not from a large company. The instructions and decals were packed in a page protector for note books. LOL The decals in it dont look bad at all, but I will likely get the Caracal set also.
  7. I happen to have one of these in the stash. Will have to work on getting another it seems. 🙂
  8. Interesting article! A Huskie that went on a diet. LOL
  9. I thought there were a number of them in civilian hands still flying. Could easily be wrong on that.
  10. So, I did not detail the interior like Ernest did. I like my results none the less. 🙂 I made the cargo net in the rear out of lead strips.
  11. Oh, I know they are functional. I just went with putting in a ceiling and closing all the gaps with plasticard. I've never done that type of detailing. One of these days I will give it a go.
  12. I believe he is still making them. I bought mine a year ago or so. He makes them as ordered so it takes like 6 weeks to be made. https://www.lonestarmodels.com/store
  13. As mentioned, virtually as soon as engines are shut down FOD covers go in/on. So it's not like it would be something you wouldnt see on a flight line. I have a bunch with and a bunch without. Just depends on my mood at the time.
