  1. revell Voodoo 1/72

    Interestingly, I have one of these about 60% complete, though it will be in ADC grey using a Caracal sheet. It's not a bad kit at all, though a bit over-engineered.
  2. Tupolev Tu-128 A-Model 1/72 scale

    The AModel Tu-128 always had lousy distribution in the US. I have no idea why. So I never bought one. Since Trumpeter announced a new 1:72 version, I'm probably lucky to have avoided the kit, though some of Trumpeter's 1:72 pricing decisions lately have been eye-watering.
  3. Loaded for Bear... or not?

    Since my interest is in the aircraft itself, I almost always build them clean. I'm not doing dioramas, which also explains why I do minimal weathering. Personally I think of them as fairly pristine museum examples. Ultimately, this is a decision for the individual modeller.
  4. I always enjoy kits of high winged sport and recon planes (L-4, Taylorcraft, Auster etc) but I think the one with the Olympic rings will be my choice.
  5. I've already got the Meng F-106A, so I'm really more interested in the F-106B. Any target date for that one?
  6. I agree that this is a nice announcement, but I have a tendency to like building in sets. Since I already have built an FJ-1 and FJ-4, I'll be happy to slip two of these between them.
  7. It is now in stock at Hannants, but the MSRP domestic is apparently 115 GBP.
  8. Soviet heavy bomber Kalinin K-7 1/72

    I'll be ready to catch one when it comes popping out of the chute! (Hmmm, not dissimilar to what I told my wife outside of the maternity ward...)
  9. This is an odd one. We were seeing test sprue shots 18 months ago. I'll still be interested in the safari markings when it comes out, but I wonder what the holdup has been.
  10. 72nd New Tool Vulccan - Airfix 2018?

    I've already built the elderly Airfix Vulcan, but would certainly be up for a new-tool version to place next to the Valiant (built) and Victor (in process). I mean, not that I wouldn't take a Beverley first, but who the heck am I kidding...
  11. Soviet heavy bomber Kalinin K-7 1/72

    Any update on this behemoth kit?
  12. And injection molded no less. I'm game!
  13. Italeri 1:72 Eurofighter (Red Arrows)

    Thanks for the comments, gents.
  14. Proving once again that I refuse to take anything, even a hobby, seriously, I present the latest what-if from the 72 Land production line. This is the Italeri Eurofighter 2-seater. Decals came from various Hawk sheets and the serial number was chosen pretty much at random. The biggest challenge was the white stripe swooping down the side; you can see where there has been some patching done. Unless the Royal Mail changes its policy about shipping enamel paints, this will likely be my last Red Arrows model, since I used up the last of my Xtracolour supply. This is completed aircraft #478 (11 aircraft, 2 ordnance, 11 vehicles for the year 2017), finished in July of 2017. As always, you can find further details and my ongoing paint and construction log in the 72 Land Blog as referenced in the sig line below.
  15. YO-3A Yoyo Unicraft 1/72

    The transition from photo #1 to photo #2 is likely more than I can accomplish without resorting to clouds of colorful language. A great job with a brick of a kit.
