  1. Franz von Werra was a Luftwaffe officer that escaped after being taken POW!
  2. Yeah sure, if you want to be fleeced! A readiness to pay through your nose makes every model available! Even if it hasn't been modelled before, you can by paying somebody enough have a model made of it!
  3. Could you tell me where I could find an A-4 in 1/72? Can't find one on Hannant's neither on Aviationmegastore. If you want one you have to buy the Italeri Top Gun set in which you get the F-14 Tomcat as a sort of bonus.
  4. Actually no wonder, when you take into account how rare the A-4 is in 1/72!
  5. Photos of airplanes with visible rivets are taken from very close! For me, visible rivets would make the model look unrealistic in 1/72.

    Pilot Figures 144th Scale

    Fox one has a set of modern seated jet pilots in 1/144.

    Revell: 50th anniversary Moon landing re-issues

    I was also up watching the First Steps in real time. That was an awesome time to live!
  8. What about the engine nacelles? Are they the same as in the 1/72 kit?
  9. Italeri is releasing the F-14 A and A-4 from the movie "Top Gun" both in the same box. Scale is 1/72 https://www.italeri.com/scheda.asp?idProdotto=2763

    F-16 to F-2

    When the YF-16 was turned over to the Air Force Configuration Control Committee it became longer, the size of its wings increased, got a couple of tons of electronics, more hard-points and was in many ways quite a different beast. From a pure day fighter it was turned into a very successful multi-role combat aircraft.

    Skunkworks (was Kinetic) F-16xl 1/48

    The F-16XL is a beautiful aircraft. I will probably one two-seater. And for other aficionados here is something you can feast on, nearly 500 pages of feasting: https://www.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/atoms/files/elegance_in_flight.pdf
  12. Judging from the picture they have located every single panel line and rivet and reproduced them faithfully.

    Dassault Mirage

    To be able to see the rivets on a real plane you would have to have extremely acute eyesight or stand very close to the aircraft. Even panel lines can be hard to see.
  14. Available at Hannant's today: https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/AAM7204
  15. Hopefully the Monogram cars like the Duesenberg, Cord, Bugatti, Rolls Royce etc. are among the moulds. Does anybody know what happened to the moulds of Jo-Han car models?
