    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    I noticed you get two basic engines. Also, anyone know why the center Sparrow trough on the fuselage is a separate insert? Having the two forward Sparrow troughs molded like that could mean breakage when the kit is packaged. Hope they wrap them to protect from breakage. Sio says that these are still TEST SHOTS. Does this mean that production has not/will not start until the test shots are finished? If so, then will production start in September? Scott CNJC-IPMS

    1/48 XP-40

    Thank you all for your responses. I am only looking for info on the plane (XP-40) in the picture, not the other XP-40's. I'm still not sure what changes to make to the Airfix kit though. Perhaps I should kit-bash the Hobby Craft and Airfix kits? Scott CNJC-IPMS
  4. I need some help and advice on how to go about scratch-building a 1/48 throttle/mixture/prop control for the HB F4U-4 Corsair kit (Since the kit does not have one). I have never done this before so I would need some pointers. Any and all help/advice is appreciated. Scott CNJC-IPMS
  5. I would like to get some regular Mineral Spirits to thin my MM enamel paint. However, I can only find Oderless Mineral Spirits in the stores. What is the difference? Is one better than the other? I thought I read here not to use the Oderless MS in MM enamel paint? Is this true and why? Some have also said that getting Mineral Spirits is cheaper than the MM Enamel thinner? Scott CNJC-IPMS

    I'm curious... How long does it take to do a 10,000 kit production run? I would assume most of July? Then you have the boxes, decals, instructions Etc. If this is true, then the kit could, possibly, be released by the end of August? Scott CNJC-IPMS

  9. Does anyone know if there are any P/E sets for the 1/48 HB F4U-4 Corsair? I looked on the Eduard site but they did not show anything. I could use some P/E for the cockpit details that HB forgot. Scott CNJC-IPMS

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    It seems that there is a new box art with changes on FB. Could someone please post the pic here for those of us that don't do FB? Scott CNJC-IPMS
  11. Hopefully someone can help me out with this. I am in need of the white stencil decals from 1/48 CED48099 Skyraider Stencils decal sheet. This sheet is rare and hard to find, and I only need the white decals for a GSB plane and a copy of the instruction sheet. If anyone has this sheet and can help me out, please send me a PM. Thanks for your help. Scott CNJC-IPMS

    Aren't the exhaust petals supposed to be fully open in AB? Also, the main gear oleo's are not fully extended? Scott CNJC-IPMS
