  1. I have built a couple of the 48th Eagles and can heartily recommend them, at around £130 each they are not cheap but 48th resin kits used to sell to close to £1000 so i suppose they are good value for money, alot of sanding on the spine parts to remove the seams needed is the only build concern .
  2. The great thing with Zvezda is who would have predicted a 72nd C-130 from them and it's high quality, so what in 2021?, who the hell knows but whatever it is it will be great and affordable, best model company out there at the moment if you ask me .
  3. there's the fuselage cross section, it is not flat but has a radius to it .
  4. You can buy dolls house wallpapers from ebay, they are scaled at 1/24th but will look okay in 35th, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dolls-House-Wallpaper-1-24th-scale-244-Quality-Duck-egg-Floral-A4-Paper/383768783224?hash=item595a66e978:g:l64AAOSwJyhfirRf and their ebay store with floor covering and many different wallpapers https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/miniaturecorner/m.html?item=313073423360&hash=item48e4a15400%3Ag%3A3iwAAOSwZxZesUFF&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562
  5. Today i got the ex halcyon kit from ebay for just £29.99, a bargin in my eye.
  6. probably the most enduring image of her ...
  7. Here she is on the way to Alang, a sad end for a proud ship
  8. Just learned how to do this and tried, it works now, thank you .
  9. i have not been able to access the modeling madness website for a couple of years, it always comes back as server not found .
  10. 70 euro's for the B-52, thats quite a price rise since the last issue of this kit a few years ago, it's like they have matched the price of the model collect kits .
  11. New acrylic paint from roots, i have no affiliation to roots model paint this is a just a write up of my finding in using them, available of ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/15ml-Humbrol-Matched-Acrylic-Matt-Colours-130-variants-Roots-Model-Paint/164259306379?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=463882005345&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 They make 130+ matt and 40+ gloss colours which covers a lot of colours that humbrol have dropped from the range and are hard to find, satin colours are in the matt range and are matt, the paint is supplied in a 15ml dropper bottle and feels
  12. It really doesn't matter to most buyer about revell quality, it will be their massive distribution network that will guarantee that they will sell more kits than a limited producer, how many 72nd messerschmitt 109 g-6 has revell sold compared to the better AZ version but i believe there is a market for a mass produced and a limited run kit to appeal to more discerning modellers as eduard compete with themselves on this with weekend and profi kits .
