    Primarily 1/48th scale from between-the-wars to now. Also dabble in 1/35th armor, 1/24 & 1/25th autos and the occasional 1/700 or 1/350 ship.

    Being a retired P-3 aircrewman, MPA is also a major interest.

  1. I'm guessing it's capabilities are probably classified at a level where no one wants to talk about it.
  2. The people that make these decisions on rereleasing a kit, more than likely would know the difference between a MiG-29 and an A-6 Intruder. Some bright spark is looking through some paperwork and notes that the MiG-29 hasn't been rereleased in some time, he makes a couple of phone calls, and there we go, getting this long outdated kit...
  3. Looks very nice! Those vertical tail units look impossibly small for an aircraft of that size.
  4. This link may work better:
  5. I would certainly want to be under $50.00. Maybe an unreasonable price expectation, but it's what I feel I could afford.
  6. The Albemarle is sure an odd looking aircraft. Kind of cool, but odd...
  7. 1/48 Span 46.25in/1175mm Length 39.83in/1012mm
  8. Looking forward to seeing your photos, Armando.
  9. That would be huge! Span: 46.25in/1175mm Length: 39.83in/1011mm Would be a good size for a new coffee table!
  10. This would seem to be a natural for the new Airfix to do in 1/48.
  11. Partially because an Airfix kit will (in general) make no money for Eduard (yes I know about the PE and Resin sales, but I'm talking specifically of the kit itself here).
  12. I keep wnating to get a YF-23, but have yet to find one at a price I'm wiling to pay.
  13. I would love to see a state-of-the-art SMB.2 in 1/48. Are you working on the venerable (but still very nice, IMO) Airfix kit?
  14. Thanks for the info, and glad to see that you're keeping your hand in.I've always like your products and look forward to seeing more.
  15. I don't remember the details, but apparently Amazon uses some sort of pricing algorithm for their pricing. Supposedly it will let you set a price, then when it sees pricing of similar items, it will raise the price to compete with those. Then the other guys' pricing will rise to compete, etc, etc, etc... A never-ending spiral. Of course some guys are greedy bastidges or have no clue how much their kit is really worth, but I think the algorithm thing is responsible for a lot of that outrageous pricing.
