Thanks, Mike,  I'll dig a little deeper for them.  The places I buy from online (several) have never had any, so I figured there just aren't any out there.  I'd really like to have one, or two ...

You're right that you'll need to dig around, although they pop up from time to time on more mainstream places:  there's the D4Y3 version on Amazon right now for $35.89 with free shipping, and a variety of them are for sale now on Ebay.

 

Good luck!

The fine Molds judys are nice kits. I picked up a couple from hlj but have not started one yet. 

 

If if they are anything like the fine Molds ki-15 I’m finishing right now, then you are looking at a very good kit.

I would sell my manly two bits for a new tool C-135 family in 1/72. I have just about all of the amt kits. But they all require a good bit of work to get them looking respectable.

No, I have not seen this or even recognize this company. 

 

Edit:  I just found a review of this kit on Scalemates.com.  In essence, if the Google translate worked correctly, this is a refresh of the old Heller kit with some new parts introduced (mostly small items it appears) by this Ukrainian company.  So, not completely new mold, but updated.  Hope this helps.

 

I do both 72 and 48 scale.  Thanks for the information.

1/48 F-107A  -because its time

1/48 B-45A  -the unobtainable Collect Aire kit needs replaced

1/48 XB-51 - see above

1/350  Golf II K-129 sub   -I won't even ask for a Glomar Explorer

1/25 Allis Chalmers 7010/Oliver 1855/White 2-150/tractors  -because in the mid 70s Ertl abandoned us farm kids after the International 1466, John Deere 4440. and Massey Ferguson 1155 Blueprint kit series to go make cars instead; never to kit another agricultural subject.  And because the world doesn't need another Bf109.

In the early '80s, I was going out of Cape May NJ to the Discoverer Seven Seas, when it was drilling off the Atlantic in over 1 mile water depth.
