  1. Chieftian in 1/72?

    And that's the thing. I looked on Scalemates, but I'm convinced I saw a 1/72 Chieftian being discussed for future release, but I can't recall where. It might just be a rumor, but since I can't find that post/thread/discussion again, I might just be losing my mind. Thanks for confirming guys!
  2. Chieftian in 1/72?

    So I'm guessing this is an oft-discussed topic, but I couldn't find a thread using the search (somebody smack me if I did it wrong), but other than Cromwell, does anyone do a 1/72 Chieftian? I could have sworn I heard a rumour that ModelCollect was on to it. I'm surprised there isn't a modern kit of it out there.
  3. Hobby/Model shops in China

    Hi Rene, thanks. I will have to check it out!
  4. Hobby/Model shops in China

    It's been two years since anyone posted to this, but has anyone been to Guangzhou lately? I'm staying at the Marriott/China Hotel on the corner of Liuhia and Jiefang Road and I was hoping to find a hobby shop or toy shop that sold models. Hoping to snag the new Trumpeter J-31 kits while I'm out here.
  5. 1/72nd Nanchang Q-5 from Trumpeter

    Luckymodel. They say they're out of stock though, I'm not sure if they're backordered or if they haven't gotten them yet.
  6. 1/72nd Nanchang Q-5 from Trumpeter

    Well, I've got them ordered. I'll put up some sprue pics when they show up at my door.
  7. 1/72nd Nanchang Q-5 from Trumpeter

    I can't wait. I may wind up getting three just to do all three schemes!
  8. Chinese aviation buff scratchbuilds 1:1 J-20 replica
  9. Finally! I've been hoping for an injection molded rendition of this kit.
  10. New tool F-15E/K by Academy in 1/72

    Wait, so when's the -15K variant coming out?
  11. Malaysian Hawk 208

    Cantik Aidy, syabas!
  12. Ooooh a Slam Eagle... :\
  13. Matchbox Victor K2 intakes - question

    Ah, thanks Rick. On the pic where you had already filled the intake floor, did you cut away the top intake guide vane? It certainly looked like it.
  14. Unicraft...how bad are they really?

    Unicraft's casting are traditional pour, and the guy who does them isn't very good at keeping air bubbles to a minimum, so you'll have a fair number of bubbles to fill at best, and at worst, you may need to build some missing tips or edges up. Detail isn't fantastic, but does the job. Granted any kit can be made really nicely, given enough planning, patience and skill, and I've seen some really nice Unicraft builds. Go for it, I know you'll pull it off!
  15. Magna 1/72 VC-10 instructions needed

    Magna did a VC-10 in 1/72? Wow, I wish I'd known that. I hope you'll post up the in-progress pics, and hurry up so that Airfix will announce one in styrene!
