    Tamiya 23ml bottles

    It is like a lot of stuff made by Tamiya that does not come into the country i.e. Tamiya putty, Tamiya Polishing Compound. Why these are not allowed when more flammable stuff can is beyond me i.e. Lacquer based products. Also surely if they import larger bottles of paint, there is more space for labelling ? Regards Robert
  21. Guessed l hoped for too much. Regards Robert
  22. Hasegawa to announce what is coming in June and July on 07/04/2021 at 13.00 JST , http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp . Hopefully there will be something interesting to look forward to, fingers crossed. Regards Robert
  23. And what is in the kit for the RF-4EJ https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10729696 . Interesting that on the new sprue V it includes new instrument panels as well for this version, well done to Finemolds. My kit is on the way from Japan. Regards Robert
  24. The colour is never easy to identify see https://www.planespotters.net/photo/901782/13-8508-japan-air-self-defence-force-jasdf-mitsubishi-f-2a that is why l did it with and without a primer. I am going to wait until l do the darker blue to see the contrast between the two. I have never seen an actual F-2A/B so am only going on photos. Regards Robert
