  1. I've heaard that is why we can't get the figures in Canada, copyright infringement. It's gone pretty quiet on a lot of boards lately! I think it's because those of us who are rabid SW fans want ships from the old movies and Bandai has to make the ships with the greatest sales potential but so few of us are impressed by any of the "new" designs. I too, have a list of ships and such that I would like to see, but how many others want a probe droid or a 1/12 escape pod to put 3po and r2 in? In regards to that tiny falcon, I would love that one too ( it will go great as scale comparison with my 350th Enterprise) but sadly I cant get those teeney kits here either and will have to order from abroad.
  2. Such a shame! My Bandai "love affair" started so strong! Great kits at great prices! and then came the Falcon! way too much for a 72nd scale Falcon (to me) and this new release is too much for a small kit with no decals, photo etch AND blue engine lenses! I might pay that kind of money for a 48th scale or even twice the money for an even larger scale, BUT a 72nd scale?...seriously?
  3. After seeing any of the "new" designs, I am hoping more and more for a B-wing, Probe droid, gunship, at-te or anything really from ANY of the first 6 movies! Keeping my fingers crossed!
  4. Star Wars Films

    All in the original chronological order from episode 1 (Darth Maul lightsaber scenes are THE best!) to episode iv. Add Rogue 1 in before a new hope and pretend the current drivel never existed. OR conversly, watch all the ones you like and the rest!
  5. New Star Wars trailer

    Still not inspired
  6. Revell type 7c to 7b conversion

    Still nothing
  7. Revell type 7c to 7b conversion

    I have gone there time and again for all kinds of information and yet it never occured to me to go to the forum
  8. Revell type 7c to 7b conversion

    I thought I might try here for an expert on German WWII subs. I have scoured the internet and have several German books with construction drawings BUT I just can't figure out U-99's sail configuration. U-99 was a type viib and I have read ( and in fact my blueprints bear this out) that type viib's had the ugly external air intakes on the tower as compared to the more hidden ones inside the tower of viic's. So I started building these ducts but then found several pictures purporting to be U-99 ( at least two of which came from someone who knew and extensivly interviewed Otto Kretschmer) and they do not show this feature. The boats in the pictures all have the horseshoe on the tower but there were of course others using this symbol. Does anyone know for sure (yeah I kmow it's not possible) if U-99 had the external ductwork or some other configuration? Thank you in advance Thomas
  9. I have used Facebook to post my pictures to! SO much easier than pb!
  10. As someone on the RPF board put it, "due to eye problems, I won't be buying this kit!" I just "can't see" spending this kind of money for a kit
  11. I'll pass on this one too! just can't justify spending 500CAD on a model kit!
  12. 1/18 Spitfire Mk. XIVe - Race #80

    THAT explains it! Real aircraft door photographed next to a modelled giant pin to give the impression that the door is 18th scale! VERY clever! The aircraft was real all along BUT all the "to show scale props" were the actual models

    LMAO! "a nice little diversion" for you,.........a holy grail for me! FANTASTIC work! Thank you for sharing!
  14. I can't see the pics either! and get too many pop ups and redirects on photobucket
