  1. Agreed with you. Yet... sometimes we need to be reminded of the original purpose of a (our) hobby. It is to invest our time and money into something we do for sheer pleasure. For the 45 euro I paid for the KH Voodoo, I had months and months of pleasure correcting, building the kit and entertaining my friends at BM. A very cheap and profitable hobby indeed considering how many evenings at the pub 50 dollars can pay you.
  2. I don’t know about you but I’m getting older and I cannot afford to wait forever for a manufacturer to make the perfect Voodoo. I’d rather get what’s available however inaccurate it is and build it in my own lifetime.
  3. The glass nose on second photo doesn't look like nose on photo 3. So which one is A team and which one is B team? Or is it that we can't trust photographs any more?
  4. Great job on a reputedly unbuildable kit, Russ. All the more formidable that it’s brush-painted!
  5. Just caught this, friend Nikolay. Am following right behind Cheers, Quang
  6. I can picture Ol' Shep chuckling and nodding with approval from his big white cloud
  7. All one has to do is use the same raised lines as a template for add-on armor plates in plastic card. Where’s the problem?
  8. Nice tanks! You’re from ARC, aren’t you? What we’d like to see are your aircraft models.
  9. Thomas from ARC , what is the last kit you have finished? Can you show it to us?
  10. Next time I know, you’d hire someone to build a correct model for you. Where’s the modelling in it?
  11. Do you sincerely think that modellers cannot trust their own eyes and therefore need ’experts’ to show them the issue? There was a time when modellers would marvel at a new kit, buy it, go home and build it. Whatever the errors, we tried to correct them with the best of our abilities. I’m not sure that becoming dependant on aftermarket like we do nowadays make us better modellers.
  12. I have no problem with AMK. For the following reasons: 1. I always read comments about newly-born kits with a pinch of salt, especially when they’re based upon CAD renderings and quick photos of the test shots. 2. I don’t decide if a kit is good or not before I see the plastic. 3. Therefore I never pre-order a kit but rather wait for its general release. 4. I never buy more than one kit of a particular a/c at a time because it takes me a lot of time to research, build and correct a model. Having said that, I have no particular interest in AMK or F-14s. But when I saw the sprue shots of the AMK F-14D on the internet, I was impressed and decided to give their earlier Fouga Magister a go. I was not disappointed. It’s one of the most pleasurable builds I had in years.
