  1. Very nice! I particularly like the way the panel lines came out on the top side. Visible, but not too visible. What colours did you use for the camouflage?
  2. The new one? The one that was also based on a laser scan? 😮 What's wrong with it?
  3. Stunning F-2! 😍 Jolly nice work on the model and the in-flight display!
  4. Quite impressive! Really looks the part.
  5. Way cool! Great that the left-overs will also yield a full model.
  6. Quoted for truth! Also one of my favourite builds.
  7. ... and also do a twin-seater eventually. 😉 I'm sure Zvezda could easily sell Revell a sizeable number of the 9.12s. NVA-LSK camouflage of greens and browns, re-unified Luftwaffe in greys, the overall black-red-yellow special, the grey one with the wings half in German/EU colours, half in US stars'n'stripes.... Could be good for three boxings. Might get Zvezda's investment back before they've even sold a single one in Russia themselves.
  8. Is the 1/72 C-130 going to be a rebox (Italeri) or a new tool? Really hoping for a new tool here! Also hoping there will be a bit more in 1/72. Would love to see them do a Mi-28 and some Hips to their recent standard. Good news for the 1/48 crowd.
  9. Just.... no. I don't have a horse in this race. 1/48 isn't my scale. If anything, want this Tomcat kit to sell by the hundreds. I hope AMK will be around for a long time. I hope they'll scale down that lovely Foxhound of theirs. You didn't hear that thing about wall thickness from me. Does this happen to all models at one point or another? The parts break-down and the mould design was supposed to make things easier. Well, it doesn't make it easier if it requires fixing. In case of the Tomcat here, it's probably not that hard to fix (a fix it shouldn't need). In case of some of the bombs in the 1/72 Kfir kit, they're beyond economical repair.
  10. I am serious. Your Surfacer dries and sands in 15 seconds? Also, basic modelling skills and all that.... It's not that I can't fix it. I just don't want to. I don't want to have to fix something that shouldn't need fixing in the first place. EDIT: For the record: I don't have an axe to grind with AMK. I'm a happy customer of theirs. Got their 1/72 L-29 Delfin and half a dozen 1/72 IAI Kfirs. My only gripe with the Kfirs is that some of the bombs are useless - because of mould alignment issues!
  11. Once you have to bring Surfacer into play, the 15 seconds thing is well and truly busted! To fix something that shouldnt even need fixing. To fix something that was even touted as a fix to potential problems introduced by the modeller during construction. This misalignment might even be one of the more manageable instances. When bomb moulds are misaligned, the resulting plastic parts are close to useless. Again: intended to make the modeller's life easier by taking away the need to carefully align bomb halves. Fine in theory.....
  12. Weren't these very intricate slide moulds supposed to make life easier by avoiding the very problem of misaligned panel lines? If the solution to the problem requires more effort than avoiding the problem in the first place (careful dry-fitting and alignment of parts), how much of an advantage is it really? Personally, I'd much rather spend half a minute more carefully aligning the parts than having to fill, sand and rescribe.
