  1. An H?? Why not a J? Seems more logical to me. Maybe the J coming later....?
  2. Ok...?? You guys could have been a little nicer.... It's only an airplane you know.... But thanks to Mstor! At least somebody loves me on this blog...LOL....
  3. LOL....It's Ok. I thought it was awesome...despite the clickbait. And for ya'lls info....I'm an AF veteran. Worked on BUFFS and KC-135's. I'm a bomber freak. So pardon my enthusiasm. Been in aviation a long time. Been in modeling all my life. Just wanted to share some cool stuff with you guys....clickbait and all... If I ever meet you guys...I'll buy you a beer....or whatever....
  4. Geez....you guys need to seriously lighten up. LOL.... Here....can I get you guys a beer or glass of wine...?? Its a badass warplane!
  5. LOL...you guys are unbelievable. Yeah....the website was crap...but ya gotta admit that pic was awesome. Never seen a pic like that of B-2 armament. Live a little. It was good fodder for thought and it was a warplane for crying out loud. What's not to like?
  6. Ok...I'm building the B-2A right now and ran across this thing today during research. Made me slobber. The B-2 is freakin unbelievable....the real one.... https://nationalinterest.org/blog/buzz/b-2-bomber-has-more-firepower-aircraft-carrier-85246
  7. I'm all over the C-130 if its a new tool
  8. I've always preferred firecrackers and/or bottle rockets....lolol....
  9. Great ideas guys! Thanks so much. Keep them coming if you think of any more.
  10. Guys, It just occurred to me that I need to show a picture of what I mean. It's not the standard C-130 black demarcation area for the radome. It's the Blue Angel yellow area unique to Fat Albert. I need to know how to mask off and paint these complex curved areas. See pic. I'm building the 72nd scale Blue Angels C-130 Fat Albert. I've got everything ready but I need some tips & tricks on how to mask off and paint the nose area. It's the area of the nose that's yellow with complex curves. Anybody know how to do this? I'm not really good (yet) with painting complex curves. Thanks!
  11. Hey guys...Looking for the Begemot 1/72 B-2A Decal Sheet. Number 72-017. Everywhere is sold out it seems. Anybody help? I live in Atlanta. Thanks, Paul
  12. Thanks for this info and reminder! But....I'm in love with a C-17 "what-if". Its in T-Birds livery. Any chance we could see a limited production of these? I'd pay handsomely.
  13. LOL!! Great....end of the year. Anybody confirm? Waiting with baited breath....
  14. Yes....we can only hope. Thanks
  15. Kinetic C-17 - Any word? I've looked all over the Web. Nothing. Anybody heard anything new?
  16. Holy cow dehowie….seems like you know your stuff well! Thanks for that. I've been a BUFF addict for eons.....worked on them in the USAF. But seeing the issues with these kits...I'm thinking it's really hard for manufacturers to get a BUFF just right. Knowing the secretive nature of the USAF...that doesn't surprise me. MC has been great to us. This is the main reason I will always buy their stuff. Yes...I wish all things were perfect...but we don't live in a perfect world. Hell...I'm happy with the AMT offering...even though it is a serious modeling PITA!!! Once you build it and make it look as right as possible...it looks great.
  17. Looks great Paul B!! Even though I can see the inaccuracies (I worked on the BUFF-G's & H's in the USAF) it's still a beautiful showpiece. Thanks for the pics. I look forward to the article.
  18. Yep....I'm with dehowie. It definitely is the best we've ever had.....but like Paul B. says...not particularly the "very best". Yes...there's issues with it. So what? That's true with even the best engineered kits. But the MC-H builds up to an amazing showpiece. Apparently creating a BUFF kit is a lot harder than it seems. I'm sticking up for MC because they've stuck up for us. Listened to us...changed things...offered fixes...even some free stuff. I'm willing to give them grace.They've got my business forever. (assuming things don't radically change). It's called Gratitude.
  19. I've got 2 of these things. (MC) I'm happy as a lark. Yeah there's errors and inaccuracies...but it's a beautiful showpiece once done. Frankly, I get tired of all the negative talk. Most people are not rivet counters. Its a fun hobby anyhow. Plus...MC has been fabulous in their response to us. Their next attempt at aircraft will be better no doubt. Same with the AMT offering. With some modeling skill it turns out amazing. I'm not unhappy with either offering...but then it'd be nice to see more accurate offerings in the future. And the correction kits released. Heck...I'm just glad to have any 72nd B-52 models.
  20. So what's the consensus? Kinetic or Hasagawa? I have a ton of Monovells…..love em. Basic yes...bet you can't beat the price. I want to move up though....
  21. Speaking of your decals....how's the new CD 72077 sheet coming?
