  1. Blimey... that's a big one!
  2. That looks rather nice. Painting should be a breeze too: Black. Fairly easy to accomplish

    Dude... you'd need a roller to paint that thing without an airbrush. Thanks for the review... this looks quite cool. I have a definite itch for the Jug and this could happily scratch it

    I have to say... that configuration for the main wheels looks really weird

    they say memory is the first to go as one gets older... :D :D
  6. That's very cool and very well done too. By the way, have you heard the commentary with the original voice? It's way more James Earl Jones than the fairly high-pitched one you are probably familiar with. Turns out the recorder from the guy was turning slow.

    you could switch to the Chinese calendar... that gives you till Feb. 8
  8. if you want to get rid of that MDF fuzz you could paint the sides with some water-diluted white glue (wood glue). The sides really act like a sponge. With the glue in, and a nice sanding session, those side should look very smooth

    So it's a balance thing? Like what they do with your car tires when they attach those small bits of lead?

    That red mark on the wheel... is that to indicate how much the tires spin around the hub when landing? (if so, why is this important?) Or is it to indicate how to re-allign them when they need to separate (when putting in new tires perhaps)?

    There may be some weird parallax effect going on here, but that MiG-29 looks absolutely tiny compared to the -31. Some amazing pictures in that link

    Did you make engine noises when you ran around the living room with this?

    Thank you! I had not noticed that this is a snap-kit. That is indeed a difference (that makes it even more appealing to my nephew). I was more referring to the look though. These look a bit caricature-ish, which the Egg-planes definitely are.
