  1. Hobby/Model shops in China

    Hi Rene, thanks. I will have to check it out!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 1/72nd Nanchang Q-5 from Trumpeter

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

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

    Cantik Aidy, syabas!
  10. Ooooh a Slam Eagle... :\
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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!
  14. So while I wait for my local shop to carry the new Airfix Victor, I'm going to start on the Matchbox K.2. I built this kit, years ago, when I didn't know any better and now that I'm much more experienced and patient, I'd like to have a proper go at the venerable kit. I'm terrible with using aftermarket, and the Flightpath set is about the cost of a new Airfix Victor (therefore negating money I need to purchase said Airfix kit), so I'm going out of the box, with as many corrections as possible. I'll rescribe and shorten the stabilizers 3mm, maybe even add a little scratchbuilt detail, but what about the intakes? I've seen descriptions of people making their own corrections, but I can't visualize what was done. Would someone provide me with a little guidance on how to do this? Thanks!
  15. Looking brilliant, Bill. I've been holding off on building mine just wondering how to add a little more detail to the PR.9, and you've done a bang-up job.
