  1. The HobbyBoss 1:48 Mig-31 also come with an incorrect nose profile, which can be corrected by getting the nose from Amigo models / Advanced modelling. I have both the HobbyBoss 1:48 Mig-31 B/BM and AMK Mig-31 B/BS ( with the sold out Mig-31 detail set from AMK.). Comparing the two kits, I dare to say the HobbyBoss is the better kit ( correct gun pod size, better surface details, correct welding panel lines on the side slab of the main fuselage )....though the Internet does sway people's judgement on what kit is better (if you listen to the marketing people). It is a pity the HobbyBoss kit ha
  2. Hi there, Can someone confirm the dimensions of the Trumpeter 1:72 Tu-128 are too large (more like 1:65)? I don't have the Amodel for comparison, but from the web, I learn that those ejection seats from the kit are too large. So, I picked up the Neomega 1:72 KT-1M seats, and the cockpit tub literally swallow the KT-1M seats, which is not high enough to reach the side canopy window, nor wide enough to meet the cockpit side panels. It seems the fuselage length of the kit is also incorrect (real: 27.43m = 38.1 cm in 1:72 versus. kit fuselage length: 43.9 cm). Thanks,
  3. The best 1:48 f-15c shapewise is Hasegawa, if you don't mind the wrong panel lines. The canopy of the GWH f-15c is too large, there is a resin canopy to correct it:
  4. The 1:48 ICM MiG-25 is the prefer kit, but I think it has a few short comings such as the rear landing gear is too weak, and the ending has a cone shape which made the wheels end up with a negative camber as in most builts you saw online (it's a simple fix with Tamiya polyester putty to make it a cylindrical end). I already have the UpWind 1:48 landing gear to replace the kit ones, but will keep an eye on the bronze landing gear made by Aerocraft to see how those two compare. Also, the spine of the ICM kit is too "squared", as covered by others in this forum. Lastly, I think no-one notice i
  5. Well, looks like Mr. Liang kept his promise after all....
  6. Looks like people who received the kit got AMK'ed.
  7. Base on the footage, looks like Tom Cruise is flying in the backseat of a F/A-18F, lolz...😎😎
  8. I saw 3 boxes of the 1:48 Revell GR.4 last week when I visited the local store of Sincere Hobby. For some reason, it is currently listed out of stock in their website. Maybe you can email them to order one.
  9. Hey, just try not to be off topic, but how's accurate is the 1:72 Hasegawa Eurofighter compared to the one from Revell? To me, the canopy of the Hasegawa Eurofighter looks a bit too large.
  10. Hi all, From Air Forces Monthly magazine (June issue), there is a small section which talks about the MiG-31 squadron in Yelizovo air base, Kamchatka peninsula. It mentioned the MiG-31 there carries the R-40TD1 missiles, and the badge looks quiet interesting. I just wonder if there is any decal manufacturer who will consider this squadron for their release. Here are some photos from the magazine: From Google, I also found gallery of the above squadron (but without the badge): https://eng.mil.ru/
  11. May I ask the moderator to close this thread? I created it by accident and can't find the button to delete this thread. Thank you.
  12. I Just got my 1:48 exhaust for the Hasegawa f-16... They look really good. Unfortunately, on the bottom of the nozzle (closed), there are some surface imperfections. Maybe it happens only to the one I received. Understandably, it is pushing the limits of 3D printing. Overall, I am still satisfied with the product given you have two options (the open nozzle has no problem). I still want to use the close nozzle, so the surface imperfections will face down, if I can't fix it with mr. surfacer:
  13. I think we really need a set of landing gears for the ICM 1:48 mig-25. The current one is too weak, makes the model sit too high, and it has a conical shape at the end that makes it hard to attach the wheels without rework.
  14. Does anyone know if there will be aftermarket landing gears for the ICM 1:48 Mig-25 rbt? From the built up photos that I found in the web, the "stance" of the aircraft was not really right, looks like the aircraft sits a bit too tall and floating on three wheels. (not sure how to describe it). I think the aircraft should be more lower to the ground and at a very shallow upward angle (from tail to nose). Of course I understand this can depend on how much fuel it carries.
  15. While I may not able to touch or see the aircraft up close, I did feel the noise and exhaust heat from the Su-27 and Mig-29 on a few occassions. Here are some photos taken by me in the Zhuhai Air Show 2016: I will visit the Zhuhai Air Show in 2018.
