  1. I'm not trying accomplish anything just venting about the exhboritant prices of kits.
  2. I got my start in this hobby as a youngster. For my seventh birthday, my father and now stepmother purchased a bunch of model kits for me. When I got started in the early eighties yes I realize that things we're very different then what they are today. Everywhere I look, I see and hear that our hobby is dying. Yet we continue to allow these manufacturers to charge exorbitant prices for model kits and everything else. I routinely see model kits on eBay that are well over $100 that shouldn't be over $50. I wonder if there's even a solution anymore. If this trend continues our hobby will most cer
  3. You're one of the lucky ones. I placed an order and then I got nothing
  4. I was wondering the same thing. I'm wondering if they're going out of business. I purchased some tracky thingies not sure what's happening. I guess we'll find out
  5. Johnny, I wil have to say I hear you and I kinda agree with you, but how safe is rock climbing? How safe is paragliding? How safe is surfing? I get it, I do. I want them grounded for a different reason. I don't want anymore of these precious aircraft to be lost. Not just he people. But for preserving the history of it. ONE THE OTHER hand I LOVE Seeing them fly and if I had enough money to go up in one of them I'D JUMP at the opportunity.. Not that I'd fit in them.

  8. Anyone have a nose cone top for that model? I am missing mine. Its part numbers L1 and L12 respectively. PM if you do thanks.
  9. Chris is a great guy. THANKS BUD
  10. That may be fine but when gluing the two parts together one side will already have paint on it as there are double layers of the panels. And both are already painted.
  11. Those PE sets that are prepainted, I always thought you were supposed to clean off paint before you glue? What glue do you guys use for that and any other tips would be very helpful thanks.
  12. Tim with all due respects you might want to contact the manufacturer and see if they are willing to provide replacement parts. If it's only those two parts then they may provide them for you. I would try that before selling this to someone. That's just my two cents. Where did you purchase the kit from? I assume either ebay or an online retailer? One way or the other I assume they would be willing to work something out with you. I would try that first before the option you're going with. Just my two cents. GOOD LUCK one way or the other with your decision. Jim

  14. Hey Steve, can you make a link on the main forum page to go to the ARC Air page? Is that possible? Thanks.
  15. OH HEY I get it, TOTALLY I just wasn't aware that you knew. I don't have a family but you're right family is always first. And I totally get it. And being a teacher can't be easy. I get it I do.
  16. They/you should make a set for the Hasegawa as well as the Academy/Eduard kits as well. NO reason not too.
