  1. When I acquired my kit, I also acquired several sets of decals. Most are for Canadian aircraft. Decisions, decisions,…
  2. Th Möbius 1/48 Aries is on preorder now. https://www.culttvmanshop.com/2001-Aries-1B--148-scale-from-Moebius-Models--21499--PREORDER-RESERVATION-Early-bird-price_p_5046.html
  3. You’re welcome. I need a new work space. I’d love to have the new clipper, the 1/350 Discovery and the new 1/48 Aires 1B moon shuttle. I do have the moon bus to build and that will be it for 2001 kits. I can hope for a 1/72 Aires 1B!?
  4. I believe it is a new kit. At 1/72 scale, it should be quite large compared to the existing one, about 29” overall. But it does come with cockpit and cabin details…NO Pan Am decals. It’s up for preorder now, @$160 from https://www.culttvmanshop.com/2001-Space-Clipper--large-kit-172-scale--from-Moebius-Models--15999--PREORDER-RESERVATION-_p_6868.html I’ve done the existing one (1/160th ish) but I don’t have room for the new one! Here is mine The Pan Am decals are second sourced.
  5. Looks great! I have not had any issues with AK extreme metal paints curing (just finishing the Roden B-36B). I have had issues with tamiya tape on the dark aluminum and AK primer. I find that I have to mask (detack the tape by applying it to the inside of my wrist a couple of times first). Then paint immediately. The only real problem I’ve had with AK is the filler/primer. That stuff never seemed to cure. I stayed tacky for weeks. I ended up wiping it off with solvent and using mr surfacer.
  6. It’s popular, because the kit part isn’t even close to fitting. It’s so narrow…QC missed this one!
  7. Star fighter decals offer resin sets for the cockpit and engine.
  8. They are after market. I got them from Culttvman website. Manufactured by JTgraphics. The kit decals were difficult at best. They were thick and difficult to get to conform to curves, etc.
  9. Two more off of the shelf. Last of last years. Moebious Orion 3 Space clipper Acedemy 1/144 B-1B
  10. precisely…the writing was the key. That was true on many programs from back then (for those in the US…”Northern Exposure!). then fill it out with many seasoned actors and you’ve got greatness.
  11. I finally got some wings on. Seam needs some minor work. I’ve got to start thinking of where I’m going to display it.
  12. The Fujimis are sweet kits. I wish I had picked up a few more before they really become “rare”. Hasegawas offerings aren’t bad either. I haven’t seen the new airfix offerings yet. There is something about the “scooter “ that just looks fun.
