  1. What have you purchased / been gifted

    A half tank of domestic gas that I’m hoping will be delivered before I freeze to death.
  2. Altered Carbon on your telly!

    Looking forward to this. I read the book years ago. Hope the TV series lives up to it.
  3. Jadlam Racing advertising kits they dont have!

    Had the said same problem with them before Christmas with the Airfix Phantom. I complained to eBay and received a refund. Aside from not making it blindingly clear on the advertising page that it was a pre-order they also apparently broke eBay rules which allow a maximum of four weeks for a pre-order. Needless to say I won’t be buying from Jadlam again.
  4. Revell 1/48 F-15E with bombs

    Really good stuff! I have one of these in the stash so I will be watching this for tips. Always been a little puzzled by the added distinction of the "...with bombs" on the kit box. Were they thinking of issuing another kit "...without bombs"?
  5. New Space 1999 kits on the way

    Correct. In fact I think its 3D printed in FUD and then primed. Same material I used to develop my custom Eagle.
  6. What have you purchased 9

    I paid $50 less than the MC list price but it's still quite pricey. Here's a picture of the main sprues out of the box along with the main parts within. I like the way they have used foam inserts to store and protect the main body parts. Overall the quality is head over heals beyond that provided in the Testors/Italeri kit. The main body parts alone are quite thick and very sturdy leaving out the need (IMO) for any structural inserts. I still think the whole kit would still benefit from some AMS (resin and PE). I'm also pleased with the size choice for the box also. It's only slightly bigger than the box for the SWS Phantom.
  7. New Space 1999 kits on the way

    Agreed. I'm normally a 1/48th person but for me the two ships have always worked best in 1/72. I can seriously see myself buying 10 of each.
  8. What have you purchased 9

    These two just arrived...
  9. For those of us who have been hoping for new 1/72 Space 1999 kits it looks as if our hopes are being answered by Round 2. New tool 1/72 Hawk and Eagle in the works http://www.collectormodel.com/
  10. What have you purchased 9

    And now this...
  11. What have you purchased 9

    This also arrived...
  12. The other point of interest is that the FM and PG kits represent two different versions of the Falcon. The FM kit is of the Empire Strikes Back version, with the five sets of landing gear, while the PG kit is of A New Hope, with the three landing gear.
  13. LOL! That's my new policy - 1 in for 1 out and avoid multiples to try and stop me from being buried in kit boxes. I think the worst thing is that the PG Falcon is likely to end up gathering dust with the rest of my stash until my retirement given my build rate. In fact I'll probably find that just as I'm gearing up to build it someone will probably announce an even better one in 1/48 or something causing me to do another swapsies.
  14. Here's a shot of the box contents. I also tried to take a shot of some of the detail but my camera just won't go for it so I've added a link to a page which has some good pictures of the detail to help give an idea. To be honest though even these don't do it justice. It really is ont of those that you have to take a look at up close to really believe. https://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=279210&page=8
  15. It was expensive but only marginally more than I had to pay for the FM Falcon plus accessories when it was re-released a few years back and this kit includes its own PE and LED lighting kit. I'll try and upload some images of the parts though I'm struggling to get my camera phone to do them any justice. The detail on the parts is absolute bonkers. It is off the charts. It's resin quality and my camera is struggling to capture the sharpness. It beats the FM Falcon hands down and is a larger kit too in much the same way that the other Ban Dai 1/72 Star Wars kits were noticeably larger than their FM counterparts. I think I'll have to study necromancy in order to ressurect Da Vinci in order to any justice to this kit when it comes to the paint.
