  2. Hi guys, which is the cost of the book, and where I can buy this book? I'm interesting in this book, I live near Trieste,(60m km.) this a history. Cheers Linus
  3. Hi Stalker6Recon, sorry for a really big retard I reply, about the glue for the decals, I had use glue "Gomma Arabica" a common glue for paper that children use at school, but can also go very well with the vinyl glue diluted with a little water (I recommend the vinyl) the first can make yellowing being of amber color! Good work and sorry again for delay! Cheers Linus
  4. Compliments Alistair, it is very nice clean and beautiful, and no damage is seen!!! Cheers Linus
  5. Hi Stalker6Recon, I also had a problem similar to yours with a KP kit, very old, the decals were brownish not yellow!!! I solved this: put a saucepan with water on the stove until it started to boil, turned off and inserted the decal in the hot water for a moment, when it moved from the detached support placed on a plane and with the help of a brush , with the water from the pan removed all the old yellowed glue, taking the vinyl glue and applying the old decals. Sorry for my mistake english, I hope you can understand. P.S. first make a test if the decals keep the temperature with on

  8. Hi David, TSR2 ia a great model, my compliments, it is very nice!!! Linus
  9. Unfortunately, we often have a bad habit, that of buying a model and we put it in the room, and we also start years later when it is out of production, and then it may happen that they do not have the required parts available, better open and start immediately work if you buy a new kit or at least check if the parts are all there !!! Linus
  10. Yes, I think it's both a studied move, even two of my friends found 2 in a single box at the cost of the single. Linus

    The best 1/48 F-14

    I fully agree with exdraken, so much so that yesterday I bought through a friend in base, a F-14D 1/48 for only $ 18.00, Revell kit, it is the old monogram with new parts (seats, engine exhaust, sensors under the nose) much simple, but in effect when finished, I will change the main wheels ....certainly I'm not going to spend about $ 99.00 or more for a model (already done once) . What matters is having fun and spending some time in carefree !!! Linus

    The best 1/48 F-14

    Good morning guys, I say mine, the Tamiya is in my opinion the best, both as a simplicity of construction and as forms, on the other hand, the very high price. Sure if I had to choose between Hasegawa and Tamiya, there is no doubt Tamiya !!! But if one is satisfied with the Academy, even if with some faults, it is a very valid alternative, quality / price. Once assembled well with well-painted invisible plastering, with a nice weathering and beautiful after market decals, all the defects will go into the background. I own both Tamiya and Academy, I also had a Hasegawa, which I sold as soon as
  21. guys thanks for your help, as I had guessed something about the prototypes, but not having publications that would give me confirmation I preferred to ask on the forum, before making a mistake, thank you gingerbob, and John R your contribution has been crucial. Now I'm very glad, because it is also interesting to know the history of the models that are built. Linus
  22. Hello guys, recently a friend told me that the wings of Attacker's first specimens were devoid of the folding mechanism, in order to create less space on board the aircraft carriers. I would like to know if this is true, and if yes, I would like to know which series were subject to this lack (certainly only Attacker F1) or maybe it was typical only of the prototypes? Thanks in advance to all those who will answer Cheers Linus
