  1. Is there a lnk where I can see a complete list? The old tool Phantom is still rather good. If the price is right, I might order a few. Jay
  2. No mention of the new tool Alpha Jet in 1/72 - I hope that's still in the pipeline. Also Glow2be/ Heller, if you're listening: a return of the old SA.330 Puma kit would be most welcome! Jay
  3. If kits had movie posters to announce them, this quote would certainly not be on one! -but great quote all the same. Jay
  4. Got my first two in just now - I'm really impressed, starting with the packaging: a very sturdy box of adequate size for what's in it. Sprues are snugly wrapped in cellophane and parts are nicely protected. All this gives an impression to me of dependability - I like it a lot. The darkish grey plastic looks smooth and is flash-free; panel lines seem nicely crisp. What did surprise me negatively is that In both of my examples the left-hand fin (which is part of the fuselage) was quite noticeably warped. Nothing disastrous but still something that needs adjusting when I get to building it...
  5. Whoa, what are you showing us exactly - are they from FineMolds themselves? What about the RF-4 nose in the pic (Revell parts?)? edit: I didn't notice your earlier post - I get it now . Jay
  6. Mine works and this is what it makes of it: above is an announcement that the mirrors and formation lights are made of plastic instead of PE which means no more CA glue needed. The formation panel lights are ultra thin plastic. (This is in a nutshell; I left the 'now you can make your model more detailed!' parts out :) Jay
  7. The wing and fuselage look quite nice. Depending on the price I'll purchase at least a couple. Jay
  8. Just had a look on the Airfix site for some extra info or box art on the forthcoming S.2B release due "autumn 2020" - alas nothing. Wouldn't more specifics be known by now? Jay
  9. Having scanned it with the Translate app, apparently it's a warning against the use of Surfacer as delicate panel lines and rivets may lose their clarity. Jay
  10. Sorry - only the questions were mine, the answers were by him. Say that again! Interesting video though. Jay
  11. With NoahKras' permission, here's some of the questions & answers I sent in: - Why make the choice for a Phantom project? (e.g. purely a market opportunity or was it also driven by enthusiasm?) Finemold has released 1/72 F-14 in the past, both as magazine and as ordinary plastic model kit. They wanted a follow up to their "Jet" lineup, and the conclusion was made that F-4 Phantom would be the most suitable options especially for Japanese market. - How did they research the shape of the nose and canopy/ cockpit section? (e.g. did they get help or measured them
