  1. Great Wall customer service link

    Have you checked with the local distributor? I managed to get the updated MiG-29 fuel tank and pylon sprues from the distributor when I found out that the original ones in the kit were undersized. I also managed to get the F-15 correction set this way but that was way back when the first announced that they retooled the nose area. Mark
  2. Ever consider a new F-22 sheet?

    Hope they include a full set of stencils. I snagged a Hasegawa Raptor in its Idolmaster guise and have been looking for stencils. Mark
  3. 1/48 - Sukhoi Su-35 "Flanker-E" by Great Wall Hobby

    Not exactly the best photo out there but you can see that these rivets may be overdone. Mark
  4. 1/48 - Sukhoi Su-35 "Flanker-E" by Great Wall Hobby

    I think the error with the MiG-29 was that they packed the large-spined 9-13 upper fuselages into the initial 9-12 kits. The one in which retooling was involved was the F-15. The nose and spine just aft of the canopy were wrongly shaped so they redid the entire nose section, canopy and spine area. In both cases, GWH made good and sent replacement parts to owners of the affected kits. Mark
  5. Best 1/48 F-16I Sufa kits out there?

    I built a Kinetic one years ago. Not a simple build. Mark
  6. F-16 with six missile rails

    If you’re talking about the pylons, they’re the same as those used on stations 2 & 8. Mark
  7. 1/48 - Sukhoi Su-35 "Flanker-E" by Great Wall Hobby

    The sheer amount of research that has gone into this project is nothing short of phenomenal. Mark
  8. 1/48 - Sukhoi Su-35 "Flanker-E" by Great Wall Hobby

    Doesn't Hasegawa have a Su-35 in 1/72? Granted it has only the top-mounted countermeasure dispensers but it still is a pretty decent kit right? Mark
  9. Best F-5E in 1/48

    No. Mark
  10. AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Lol. This AMK Tomcat is becoming like the Joint Strike Fighter programme of the modelling world. Hopefully it doesn’t cost modellers a bomb to acquire when they finally hit the streets. Mark
  11. Best F-5E in 1/48

    Agreed. Go with the AFV Club kit. It is probably the best kit of the F-5E/F on the market. I've built 2 of them and found both builds to be really enjoyable with good general fit and excellent detail. Mark
  12. Model Collect B-2

    Looks like they will soon be on the way to those who pre-ordered. Mark
  13. Tamiya Release Rumors?

    Wasn't the Tamiya re-box of the Italeri 1/32 F-35A announced at the All Japan Hobby Show back in Sep/Oct this year? Mark

    If there was, I'm sure someone would have broken it. Mark
