  1. Official! HK 1/32 British Phantoms!!

    Did this ever get released?
  2. Thanks fellas, I was not aware of some of the other offerings. I agree that its such an important aircraft that it really does deserve some new tooling.
  3. Fellas, its been years since I followed the 48th Aircraft release scene. I've seen new Viggens and Jags, but did someone do a new A-10 along the way that I missed? Or has one been announced? The only ones I'm aware of are Mongram one and the early HB one. Cheers! Graeme
  4. Official! HK 1/32 British Phantoms!!

    Ohh.. the weathering potential on those utterly filthy RAF birds...
  5. 1/48 RCAF SAR DHC-3 Otter

    Man, this is looking good! Love that scheme on the Otter!
  6. Army helicopter crews

    my mind is blown! This is a paradigm change for the hobby.
  7. Academy MH 60 S Helicopter 1/35 scale/

    Brilliant scratchbuilding!
  8. AVGP Late Grizzly and ASLAV-PC Phase 3?

    Good news! Shoot me an email when they are in stock and I'll pick up a couple. Cheers! Graeme
  9. really nice! I'm digging the prop tip chipping
  10. Is IPMS still relevant?

    Like Riderfan, I let my IPMS Canada membership lapse around '97 or so. I just renewed it in 2011. I think the main reason was the quality of R/T...there were so many well written, well researched, quality articles that appealed to me, it just made sense to join again. R/T is also the only magazine I currently subscribe to. I was a member of IPMS Edmonton for a few years, and thoroughly enjoyed all the meets we had; the regular monthly ones and the impromptu morning coffees. I believe I've made some lasting friendships that transcend modelling as a result of that club. When I moved to Ottawa, I tried the local IPMS chapter, but for a few reasons (ie distance, meeting date) it just didn't work out. Also, the local IPMS chapter seems weighted towards aircraft. I'm mostly into AFV's, and there's a local AMPS chapter that I belong to get that fix. I find the interaction of the local club great as there are people skilled in a variety of aspects of the hobby, and there's nothing like speaking with them face to face to learn a new technique. I'm not sure if the local clubs would be as succesful with or without a national level parent organization? I suspect they'd survive, but there's little chance of a magazine like R/T being generated without some collaborative oversight from something like IPMS Canada.
  11. AVGP Late Grizzly and ASLAV-PC Phase 3?

    Denis - the Late Grizzly is already out..who would have thought we'd see one of these in styrene?!? BTW - I am ex-AD as well. 119 AD Bty / 4 AD Regt / 18 AD Regt, from 93-2003
  12. AVGP Late Grizzly and ASLAV-PC Phase 3?

    Yes & no. The ASLAV-PC is more akin to the Canadian Bison. Yes, its an 8x8 LAV, but it does not have a turret, and the upper rear hull is a continuous steep angle from the beltline.
  13. Hiya, when do you expect to have these in stock?
  14. Guess they got delayed. No worries, I'll keep checking.
