  1. Hello. The best, and only one for an argentine A-4P for the Malvinas War period is Hasegawa´s one. But, you´ll need some aftermarket antennas for it, as the one in the kit are wrong for an argentine plane. As decals concern, you may search for the Aztec ones, Condor Decals and FCM. Happy modelling
  2. Thank you very much seawinder..... Best regards, Juan
  3. Hello to all: I´veread somewhere that some of the old Tamiya 1%58 kits were in reality 1/50 kits. If that is the case, may someone, please, tell me wich ones were underscaled?. Thank you very much in advance. My best regards, Juan
  4. Hello: I usethe ones from AMMO MiG Gimenez. But, in order to obtain a gloss finish, you must apply 2 or 3 thin layers. Another brand I use is K-4, a chilean one, and the best for me, Sicko, wich is a local brand here (Argentina). Happy Modeling!
  5. Thank you very much for your answer!. Regards, Juan
  6. Thank you all for your kind responses. Best regards, Juan

    BAE Hawk

    Dear fellow modellers: I´ve been wondering wich kit would be the best BAE Hawk in 1-48 scale, specifically for an armed version, not the pure trainer. I know there are kits from Airfix, Italeri (reboxed by Tamiya) and Hobbby Boss....so wich one deserves my money?. Best regards and thanks in advance, Juan
  9. Hello there from the far cone of the Earth!. Thanks a lot for your kind help regarding the Modelsvit YaK-9DD kit. I only could find that boxing, but the decals are very interesting. I found some aftermarket ones for the more colorful T, K and M. So, I was planning to change decals. Have you got the piece numbers I would need for the T or M?. or must I use the ones not for use on the DD?.

    Thanks again for your help.

    If you need info about latinoamerican, and argentine aircraft in specific, give me a call.

    Best regards,


  10. Thank you very much, Iván and John Thompson for your kind help. My best regards. Juan
  11. Dear fellow modelers: My question is, would it be possible to build a YaK-9M or YaK-9T with this kit?. I know the T has a different cannon, so one modification would be that, but my concern is about the canopy position. Was the DD canopy in the same place than the T , M or D?. Thanks in advance. Juan
  12. Yes, I´ve checked better and it has a 4 machne guns turret, I made a mistake, because I was confused by the fact that later in their production run, they incorporeted a 4 gun turret with a shape similar to that of the B-50. My mistake. thank you all for your kind feedback Best regards, Juan
  13. Dear Felow modellers: I´d like to know if the Tamiya´s Tomcat has movable wings. I mean, can you swing the wings once they´re build up, like the Monogram kit?, or must you choose one configuration before assembly, like the Hasegawa´s one?. Regards, Juan
  14. Well, at first the plane only has 2 machine guns in its frontal upper turret, later on, it had 4 machine guns in a modified turret, also seen on the B-50. tha Monogram kit has the original 2 gun turret.
  15. Hello dear collegues: I´m just wondering if someone produce the 4 machine gun turret for the monogram 1/48 B-29 . I know that some had it instead of the more common 2 machine guns. I also know Eduard has an interior photo etched set...is there something more I should consider?. Thanks in advance Juan
  16. Thank you very much Kurt H.. The funny thing is that I´ve serched in their website (in fact I´ve bought one decal sheet from them) and didn´t find those decals, maybe I´m getting on a bit.. Regards, Juan
  17. Well my fellow modelers, title says it all. Does any manufacturer has decals in 1/48 scale for the F-4B Stencils?. Best regrds, Juan
  18. Hi Plastic Weapns: I can see the stiffeners that were removed and that you made again but cannot see the detail of the shouds, may you mark them in a red circle, please?...I cannot tell the difference..maybe I need more powerful glasses. Best regards, Juan
  19. Thank you very much Robert. So, for example, the boxing from Revell Germany, that is, the Black Tomcat boxing, isn´t an A variant anyway, cause of the engine shroud I guess... Best regards, Juan
  20. Does the newer boxings of the Monogram F-14A Tomcat in 1/48 scale has the old style gun gas vents, or only the NACA type ones?. Best regards, Juan
  21. Welcome back to the hobby JerseeJerry 55. The old Monogram kit is avery nice and easy one. Just, as Kurt said, take your time in the wings to fuselage joint and the underside of the cowling. It´s a fun to build. As far as paints, you have now 2 (3 here) acrylics brands now, AMMO and AK- Interactive. Both are water soluble, oudorless and a pleasure to work with. I´ve sold out all my old Humbrol enamels ones and changed to these kind of paints. Best regards, Juan
