  1. Didn't say there are not 'enough' Mustang kits on the market / coming. But on these volume kits I like choice. Without going too much off topic here, the Revell in 1/48 would be my preferred one atm. Airfix offering is also very promising (soon we'll see), but a later one. Eduard, Meng do love them their holes in the skin a little too much for me. So, I still see room in this market.
  2. And I hope Revell will consider scaling this seemingly very nice kit down to 1/48! They unfortunately have not done this quite often in the past...
  3. I made a habit to visit https://www.eduard.com/info-eduard/ once a month. Like their Overtrees too 😎 Alternatively there is a thread here for the Info Eduard which you can subscribe to, and don't miss it anymore.
  4. Spot on. I misunderstood. Sorry.
  5. Vast majority for those skin thicknesses would even be 5/32 and 3/16. Yea, thing is, it's en vogue currently, so we have to deal with it.
  6. I always passed on the CA one... maybe finally... ☺ Seems to be good times for fans of British WWII a/c currently!
  7. 1/72 - CASA C-212 Aviocar - by Special Hobby

    sigh... for someone who is 'fixed' on 1/48 for smaller subjects, and 1/144 for the large ones, gems like this seems to be one pose a bad temptation... Congrats to Special Hobby... 😎
  8. Nice! This will then be complementing my AMK kit. Two is better than one ;-)
  9. AIRFIX 1/48 Supermarine Walrus Mk.I Released

    Pricing wise I must say I can accept to pay more for a niche product than a mainstream one. Even from a 'mainstream' manufacturer. If they elect not to do a mixed calculation and this might allow them to experiment a little more with less mass compatible subjects, I'm all in.
  10. AIRFIX 1/48 Supermarine Walrus Mk.I Released

    I know my post sounds quite harsh and unfair considering the mould quality and finesse of the surface details. Thing is I dislike all the holes which are meant to be flush rivets. This I'd need to rectify on my build. Doable, as said, but there's to much interesting competition on my stash for that. I know very well the modeling community is rather torn on this subject. I totally don't like them, but I can see them becoming a valuable addition in some cases*. My take is: It's much easier to add them as a modeller than to remove them. *: And I can as well se why many like them in general. I hope this clarifies my above post (and doesn't start a discussion on the rivets as I think that topic is exhaustively discussed ;-) )
  11. AIRFIX 1/48 Supermarine Walrus Mk.I Released

    I doubt it's that limited 😁
  12. AIRFIX 1/48 Supermarine Walrus Mk.I Released

    I'm out. Too bad. The surface 'detail' is not mine. Yes, it's all doable but the question is if it is worth the effort for me. So far I don't see it. :-(
  13. Sigh... too bad... ok, I'm in for a new La7 as well...
  14. Is something wrong with Gavia's offer? @topic: I'd be in for a decent Mig 23 as well!
  15. The sprues picture didn't load when I made my comment. You were spot on! This one will definitely be bought... and some Eduard 109 will leave my stash / donate parts for conversions...
