  1. Saw that the MDF Scaledown volume on the Eurofighter Typhoon is out. I know the earlier Typhoon book by Andy Evans is considered one of the better refs on the subject. Does this new book build off the earlier one? Is this one a good one-stop reference on the Eurofighter? Thanks!
  2. Hobby Search shows the Doyusha boxing now in stock... https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10598016 Mike
  3. Roy, Many thanks for the reply. Glad your project met your goals for it! I will patiently wait and see what ArmyCast does. Mike
  4. Just saw on the ArmyCast FB page that they are looking to do a resin upgrade set in 1/72, but might only fit it for the upcoming HobbyBoss kit. They said they might fit it for the Fujimi kit as well. They also have decals for the Ahit... Mike
  5. Roy, Any plans to re-cast some? Just curious, as you and Eagle Designs were the only ones I know of that ever did the extended exhausts in 1/72. Several have been and still are available in the larger scales. Like the Fujimi kits, Israeli A-4 decals are pretty rare these days in 1/72 as well, but I can fix that. Just don't know how to master and cast resin, and scratch-building is a bit intimidating for my marginal skills. Mike
  6. Probably the same place you could find extended pipes.... Contacted Eagle Designs, who also once made them, but he responded that production has halted indefinitely...
  7. Were these extended exhausts ever released? Are there any other sources for extended pipes for 1/72 A-4s?
  8. Just to provide an update, I contacted Airfix around the 1st or 2nd of March, and within a day or two they had the replacement clear sprue in the mail. Arrived today here in the U.S. Have to be impressed with that level of customer service. I had originally reached out to Hornby USA the first week of December, and after multiple messages (email and phone), I have yet to hear anything from them.... At least the Mothership is responsive to the customer. Mike
  9. I contacted the UK site, and received a request for some additional information this morning. Fingers crossed I am making some progress. Thanks again for the help Mike
  10. Many thanks for the help Gents! Mike
  11. Many thanks for the replies!
  12. Do you guys have a contact email for Airfix? Purchased the 1/72 Harrier GR7/9 kit here in the US back in November and opened it to find the clear sprue missing. Tried going through Hornby America, but have gotten no response. Thanks, Mike
  13. I purchased the Airfix 1/72 Harrier GR7A/GR9A kit (4050) back in November here in the US. When I opened it, the entire clear parts sprue was missing. I've reached out to Hornby America, but have never heard back from them. Has anyone had any luck getting replacement Airfix parts from Hornby? Should I try Airfix in the UK instead? Thanks
  14. From what I can find, it looks like the small stabs are only included in the following Revell releases: F-16 MLU - 4612 F-16A - 4363/64363 F-16C Block 50/52 - 4633 Monogram F-16C - 5309 Am I missing any others? Thanks
  15. Andre, Many thanks for the info. Are the small stabs also included in the -C model boxings? Thanks, Mike
