  1. Liking some bits, but not digging others, like the exhausts and the lack of any camera windows.
  2. The Quinta set looks a lot better, but if you can’t wait, hopefully it will do.
  3. Is October over yet? Still 2 1/2 weeks left where I live.
  4. It would make little sense for a company to prioritize eBay orders that have to be individually boxed up, addressed, postage applied, and sent, over an order from a vendor for thousands of dollars worth of sets that all get sent to one place in one package. Also, some companies pay for air shipping, which is a lot faster than the typical economy shipping used for eBay orders.
  5. Based on an email from Hobbynut Models that I got today, it sounds like they are having problems keeping up with demand. I currently have four orders pending with Quinta, several hundred items, that are delayed due to demand and production speed limitations at Quinta. Quinta does not stock their products, instead prints them to order. My oldest order is a few weeks overdue. Quinta has promised to ship my largest order this week. Normally, It takes 5-7 days for it to arrive to me as I pay for priority air shipping from Russia. I continue place a new order every Monday, in the past i
  6. You can look at the instructions, which include the sprue layouts, for all three kits here. https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/search?typ1_c=102&cat=&state=&sold=0&sortid=0&searchkey=1%2f48+ah-64e I believe that, except for the addition of the V sprue, which has the upturned exhausts, the rest of the plastic is the same.
  7. I think the old Hasegawa 1/48 F-16C Night Falcon kit included both LANTIRN pods. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/hasegawa-06108-f-16c-night-falcon--163724
  8. I’d recommend waiting a bit for Quinta to release their set. Quinta just released a set for the Trumpeter E, and a set for the F can’t be far behind. The Quinta sets contain sidewalls and seat belts, neither of which are included with the Red Fox sets. Also think the detail on the Quinta sets is a little better.
  9. Except the old 1/48 Sanger vacuform B-47 kit. https://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/Gal7/6301-6400/gal6380-B-47-Aibara/00.shtm
  10. I was wondering that myself, but the parts count of 380 parts seems pretty high for any of the other kits, and seems high in general for a 1/48 Raptor.
  11. I believe the C model FAST packs had two individual pylons at the same place where the Sparrow launchers were on the bottom corners of the intake. Basically they were used to retain the AIM-7 capability with the CFTs attached. The E model CFT has a long bottom pylon with 3 stores stations, in addition to the 3 individual pylons on the side.
  12. Mk82 with BSU-49 tail assembly. Usually called Mk82 AIR (Air Inflatable Retarder).
  13. Place Japan is fine. I’ve order from their site before, so no worries there. But as stated above, shipping options are now more limited and more expensive.
  14. It’s the standard A model for anyone interested.
  15. I think what people want is a decent one. That’s not really a Dragon kit, which actually isn’t their own kit. It’s a rebox of a kit made by Panda.
