  1. The base adds a very believable sense of speed. And the model is great too!

    F-15E Loadouts

    What a shame that F-15E site has gone down.

    Kinetic CF188 1/48

    Very interesting stuff. The intakes are the only thing I didn't particularly like about this kit. I might have another go and try this.

    Tamiya New Tool 1/48 Spitfire I?

    I think it would have been nice to have the choice for an open engine bay. This still looks like a great model though, I'll definitely be picking one up in the new year.

    What makes a good/bad fitting model?

    Do you mean the excuse of 'poor fit' possibly relating to modeler's skill? I'm referring only to objectively poor fitting, as in badly designed.
  6. Hi all, I was sat thinking about the fit of a few of the models in my stash and it led me to a question: What leads to a good/bad fit between parts? How do some companies get fit so wrong, and what processes are there to make sure everything aligns perfectly *cough* TAMIYA *cough* in the final product?
  7. Check out the F/a-18 too...

    odd question- dark paint visibility study

    Radio Control gliders typically use thick stripes of black and a fluorescent colour like orange or pink, to increase visibility at range,

    RAF Gr.1 vs. Gr.4 question

    You can pick up Post RAF lettering decals in lots of sizes, and modern GR4s just have a tail code, some roundels and not much else!

    ready made cockpits

    Is it so hard for you to believe that other people enjoy different aspects of this hobby to yourself?

    Revell YouTube Video

    SMA Is a brilliant Youtube channel by the way, I have a feeling Dusan is also a member on this forum!

    Crazy prices on Kittyhawk kits,ebay.

    Very difficult to get scammed on eBay using Paypal, they usually side with the buyer not the seller. Worth a go I'd say!

    GWH Jumping on the 1/48 Tomcat Bandwagon?

    We need to forget about F-14s, we're dying for another BF-109 in 1/48 !
