  1. Same here! I remember a reply from mr Evans of the late Whirlybirds who stated that for a small company like Whirlybirds starting up the design of an AW139 kit was too risky when there's still a chance that the 139 would be realeased by a big manufacturer like Revell or Italeri. In the current modelling market I would guess that this risk is no longer there with Italeri nor Revell venturing into new helicopter kits. I would (love to) put my money on DreamModel, having released a very nice Dauphin and other helicopter kits, and planning to release the S-61N.

  3. Best results I had were with Experts-Choice Clear Decal Film. AMS in the Netherlands used to have these in stock until recently, and I cannot get a hold of them now unfortunately. Second best to me is Testors Decal Paper, which has also better availability here in the Netherlands. Too bad Testors comes in smaller page size, A5. After years of experimenting I still keep searching for the best results and you don't want to know the loads of failed attempts I had and which costed me loads of decal paper. It struck me more than once that print quality can differ considerably between two consecutive prints, while using the same paper and printer settings. This is what makes printing my own decals a sometimes rewarding but often frustrating (and expensive!) part of the hobby. Hope to find more advice here!
  4. My thoughts exactly. 1:35 is close to ridiculous. I'm in the Netherlands. If more than two people here would buy this kit, we would have to invade Belgium to find the space to display them.
  5. That was my first thought too when I read Zell!
  6. Nice, one more obstacle out of the way for DreamModel to release their S.61-N.
  7. Funny: this comes as no surprise. I have wondered for years how on earth Revell could maintain their low prices. Italeri prices went through the roof, and EE gets close to theft (I know: people still buy them...), so pricewise there still is no reason for me not to buy Revell kits. I am dissapointed though at the lack of Revell new releases.
  8. Hm. Still not tempted to buy anything from EE. Do hope though that Authentic Airliners will re-release their 188. Nowadays it will probably be the less expensive alternative!
  9. My thoughts exactly Jon! The release policy of some model manufacturers has an astonishing similarity to my style of modelling: I start a new kit almost every week but most of them still have to be finished... Gertjan
  10. Shoot! I pre ordered one at Aviation Megastore and just noticed that they expect the kit mid october...
  11. Exactly. One can also find a TopGun 1:48 Bell Long Ranger on Scalemates that never saw the light of day.
  12. Sorry for the late reply, but Braz also did a 1/144 ATL conversion for the Minicraft DC-4.
  13. Nice!!! I see some alterations compared to the earlier Attack Squadron version. I don't think we will ever see the release of a Bell 407, so this is as close as it will get. I experimented on the Attack Squadron kit; sprayed it red, brush painted the window surfaces (beautifully scribed on the kit!) black and when I look at it from some distance with squinted eyes, it's a civil 407 to me!
  14. Magnificent build! Especially on this kit, which imho is a pain to build. Mine didn't turn out half as nice. Congratulations!
  15. ...And a Robinson 22 to top it all off... Man I am already too shortsighted to spot a 1/72 Piper Cub!
