  1. Interesting that no numbers are given, although I do understand that need for keeping it under wraps. That said, this is available on Wiki; "The AIM-120C deliveries began in 1996. The C-variant has been steadily upgraded since it was introduced. The AIM-120C-6 contained an improved fuze (Target Detection Device) compared to its predecessor. The AIM-120C-7 development began in 1998 and included improvements in homing and greater range (actual amount of improvement unspecified). It was successfully tested in 2003 and is currently being produced for both domestic and foreign customers.
  2. Furball Aero-Design made some a couple of years back for the F-105 and A-7, might have made it for the F-4 too.
  3. decals to represent the yellow border seen on Phantoms and F-105's between the cockpit clear parts and frame.
  4. Nice! My brother gave me this for Xmas when I was ~12ish years old, in the old boxing showing the B-16B RNLAF markings on the boxtop. My first of many F-16's and a love afair with the aircraft that still linger on
  5. Nice! Any news of a potential MiG-23UB conversion set - with resin clear parts (Hate vacuum forms!)? We surely miss a good 23UB model in 1/48, but a conversion for the Hobby Boss kit would be nice I know there was a conversion set some time ago, but it is OOP
  6. Not everyone is up to scratchbuilding
  7. I know the "reshaped" nose is still off, but yet it's better than the original. Honestly I have sorta given up on Kinetic's F-16's, but still keep hoping
  8. Another thing Arnobiz, Would you know if this release has the corrected nose shape?
  9. May be, this is however the instructions from the 2009 boxing; C:\Users\Mara\Desktop\slozka\navody\f-16\f-16full (scalemates.com) and this is the likely weapons included - GBU-15 confirmed; https://www.luckymodel.com/scale.aspx?item_no=SW-48001 Personaly I hope they include the Spice as it is more representative of weapons carried by Israeli jets recently
  10. You are forgetting that COVID reduces sales in many cases and it doesn't necessarily allow for employing additional staff. Add to that most are ordered to work from home and you get the drift. It can also be difficult to check if an item is 100% even in a blister pack, and no, I don't expect the staff to have intimate knowledge of all the parts in each item they are selling, and wether they are OK or not. Just check how many items Hannants have in stock and you will understand why. But it is entirly up to you. As I said I would contact Quickboost in parallell and highlight t
  11. Checked the instructions from the 2009 release, and the decal options is the same. Wonder if this is merely a re-release although with a new kit number? Will be interesting to see when the instructions become available via Scalemates
  12. That's a bit harsh to be honest. Firstly, postage these days takes forever, so setting a 2 week deadline will for sure give you dissappointment. Secondly, have you tried to contact the manufacturer and present the problem to them? Even if the goods where purchased through Hannants it is after all the manufacturer who screwed up, not Hannants. So try that path in parallell, and you may get a better response. Remember, between Brexit and Covid, UK companies has more than their share of issues to deal with, so you should cut them some slack. Edit: Here is Q
