    Modelcollect B-52H

    Yes...it struck me as an OOOPPS! moment for Model Collect also. If it's not....then I cannot fathom who in the he- - thought that a flying pose would market well with modelers. Especially after the AMT debacle several years ago. Infuriating. I hate to disagree but BUFF wings droop naturally with no fuel or weapons. They're designed that way. It's just that the wingtip gear do not touch when not fully loaded. I worked on B-52G's and B-52H's in the USAF. KC-135's also. Sheet metal. The wings droop naturally for better stability and greater payloads. Same with the C-5...C-141...C-17....An-124...and other heavy lift military aircraft.

    Modelcollect B-52H

    I heard from MC on Facebook. They said they are fixing the flying wing problem. They said the wings were not originally designed in CAD to be in flight mode. Good to know....keeping my fingers crossed...

    Modelcollect B-52H

    You would think that with all of the frustration over the AMT offering and the "flying pose" wings...that ModelCollect would not even THINK about offering wings in the flying pose. If they don't offer an alternative wing assembly or something.....I'm out. I refuse to pay over $100.00 for such poor workmanship and marketing. Not to mention the nose and antennas......

    1/48 Revell HH-53C Jolly Green Giant

    Looks great! Dito on the sanding marks. I have one that took me 5 years to finish...LOL!.....among 10 other projects. I'll post pics sometime. Really....not a bad model at all. LOVE Revell stuff....
  6. Looked at the B-36. VERY Impressive. But even if I was independently wealthy I wouldn't spend $600.00 on a plastic model. In fact....that's why I've stayed out of RC. One crash and there goes a serious car load of $$$$. Plus...where would I put it? I'm MORE than fine for paying a $100.00 + for a well engineered 72nd BUFF. In fact....I just started on the Monovell BUFF D. It ain't that bad! Building it now.
  7. Hey....I'm good with the 72nd offerings from AMT, Italeri or Model Collect. In fact....I'm waiting oooo so patiently for the Model Collect BUFF H.
  8. Great! Let me know.....even if it's been started. Thanks!
  9. Any of you guys out there have a 1/72 Monovell B-52 you'd be willing to part with? I'm building this beast and have screwed it up royally. I'd like to have another one or 2 on hand for spare parts and to build another one. Thanks! Paul

    Kenetic C-17 - Any word?

    For an accurate C-17 with good detail....I'll pay. But please don't out price the market like Roden did. Their C-5 is a great model....but I refuse to pay $164.00 for a 1/144 kit with minimal detail. I'm looking forward to your C-17 though!!

    Kenetic C-17 - Any word?

    Holy crappp!!! Just looked at the CAD's in the Kinetic 2018 Catalog. No wonder you guys are taking so long and having weight issues!! lol.... That thing is detailed out of this world. Details add a lot of weight. I get it now! Raymond...I'm just thinking out loud here. A basic but interesting interior with a decent and interesting cockpit is wayyyyyy Ok with me. And I think I might speak for most of us big scale modelers. Case in point....Revell's 1/72 A400M. (Sorry....just an example). A good representation of the basics is very OK with me. Maybe others too. Just so the outside looks good with the overall shape....engines....fans...panel lines....lumps, bumps and antenna...and landing gear. For me.....the outside is the most important. Thanks for your efforts! It looks amazing....but possibly toned down a little (details) so we can get out to market.

    Modelcollect B-52H

    I'm just hoping and praying that it's not "vaporware". Same with the Kinetic 72nd C-17. Modelcollect's models ROCK. And....I think they are legit and intentional. I think they'll come through. Gut feeling. But only time will tell. I tend to be positive though....
