  1. New 1/72 Saab Viggen in the horizon

    So looking forward to these. Gonna need a dozen! The one thing I don't like is that it seems there are no weapons in the kit itself. Sidewinders I've got plenty of, but it would have been nice to see some of the specifically Swedish stuff, like the Rb 04 and 05 or the humongous Bofors 135mm rocket pods. Sure, they're all avilable in resin, but I fear the Viggen itself is gonna be expensive enough. Not really complaining though, just would have been nice. New Viggen, baby! And not just one version, but all of them!
  2. Tamiya Release Rumors?

    Because of two things. 1. They're Tamiya. The market is ALWAYS dying for a new Tamiya kit. 2. It's a 109. The market is ALWAYS dying for a new 109. I mean, when have you last seen a thread speculating what kit Trumpeter will release this week? Then once in a blue moon a new Tamiya kit is announced and people go crazy. There's even threads speculating what venue Tamiya will announce their next release at. And 109s just plain sell. There always seems to be a market for new 109s.
  3. Trumpeter 1/48 mig-19s

    Very nice work! Good to see the MiG-19/J-6 getting some love. Such a cool aircraft.
  4. Su-33 Flanker D // Zvezda // 1:72

    Hot damn, but that's nice! Absolutely marvellous work!
  5. 1/48 GWH Mig-29 9.12

    Simply superb!
  6. 1/72 F-16F from Hasegawa F-16I?

    Good question, habu. Is it perhaps linked to the small optical turret in front of the canopy?
  7. 1/72 F-16F from Hasegawa F-16I?

    Is it? It's a special pod, so far only used by the UAE's Vipers. It's called AN/AAQ-32 Internal FLIR Targeting System (IFTS).
  8. 1/72 F-16F from Hasegawa F-16I?

    I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think so. There are slight differences on the spine that Hasegawa created separate parts on separate little sprues for, but I don't think they're included in every "spined F-16" boxing. It might be an idea to look up the instructions for the F-16F and F-16I over on Hobby Search/1999.co.jp/eng/ and compare the parts lists and the relevant sections of the assembly steps.
  9. 1/72 AH-64 APACHE

  11. Shelf Queens Pt. II GB

    Got loads of shelf queens. Some even from previous GBs on this here site. And my modelling mojo could use a kick-start.
  12. A-7E Corsair II

    <....>just going to do a TPS scheme <...> Dude! You could've painted a desert scheme! And you go for a grey scheme? Are you sure you didn't hurt more than just your knee? That said, you absolutely nailed the worn look! Hope your knees are better, too.
