Be still my beating heart! The aviation world's dullest paint scheme in a bigger scale. it will also probably cost as much as a real one.

The aviation world's dullest paint scheme

HOW can you say that??? It's anything but dull, with that beautiful sheen, all those contrasting panels.... It'll look fantastic in 1/32. Just as I'd decided to downsize to 1/48, of course....!

Hope it fits better than the YF-22.

Somehow, this just does not turn me on. I don't mind the paint scheme, but the scale results in a model that you can't conveniently display...and everybody and his kid brother is making an A or B. The C model would be of more interest, as the Orange Hobby kit has a nasty mould line on the inside of the canopy.

Hmmm. I probably wait for Tamiya... Starf was inaccurate... And Mirage III ? I don't know. Is Mirage OK ?

The mirage is accurate , but a little crude in places, and the fit isn't exceptional , but its highly buildable -

the F-35 is a very nice surprise , and i'll be getting it as Soon as its available , for me its really good news, especially as the aviation mags have been all over the F-35 in the last few months after the Marine corps IOC of the type ,

This is a very good day, - would be a lot better is someone would do a 32nd F-22 to go with it tho!

Was the 104 inaccurate? My understanding was that some details were while the shape was fine. Mould quality is another story, pretty bad.

I would consider the choice of variant good for this F-35, the A us after all the variant that will be used in largest numbers by the vast majority of users.. Not least Italeri's home market

Have you been sniffing too much Tamiya extra thin? :mental: Whatever floats your boat I suppose, but not for me.

Maybe we will see some colour on the jet once it's been in service for a bit.

Brilliant! Look forward to this one, hope they do the STOL B though....that's the one I want, a conversion will be a pain..

Have you seen the first US Navy squadron? A lot more colourful than anything else they've got at the moment.

Still, your opinion is valuable, thank you. <_<

OK, this is good think... Mirage IIICJ is my favorite delta :)

I read a bad reviews for Starf... Inaccurate cockpit etc....

Tamiya release a last jet in 1/32 a twelve years ago... Maybe is time for another - and F-35 may be bought a Japanese Airforce.... I think he is a high probability a next jet from Tamiya in big scale may be F-35....

But better Italeri in pocket....as Tamiya on the roof. :D:)

I'm a die-hard 1/32 guy but this one has to appeal a great deal post-review - but no hesitations raising a glass of delight to Italeri's TF-104G and Mirage IIIE/R. Thanks Italeri; :Great Job:

Not to mention the fact that it's also - by the proverbial country mile - the aviation world's ugliest ever aeroplane.....

OK, I can't disagree with that; however, something that's half as ugly as an F-32 is still REALLY ugly!

Military aeroplane that is, please don't leave that over-sized bucket of junk, the A380 out of a statement like this!

 

The world needs a return to real jets! Bring us back the Tomcats, Phantoms, Bucc's ;)

Oh good: another kit of this ghastly contraption that I won't want to buy, so I can spend my money on Airfix Victors and Shackletons (amongst others).
