  1. I really like all the V-bombers, so its always fun to see one go together. It seems like your work is really working out to make a great model out of this old kit.

    Best F-35A kits?

    That's really a shame. I was planning to buy the Academy kit purely on the basis that they provide the option for an open weapons bay and the Hasegawa kit does not. I'm probably still going to go with the Academy kit because the weapons bay is more important to me than the ram tape, but its too bad we have to give up one or the other.
  3. I was curious, would it be likely to see the F-35 carrying external ordnance (aka "beast mode") if the internal weapons bay was not already full?
  4. Thanks! You may have just changed my plans from doing a US Phantom to doing a British version instead. I love that dark paint scheme.
  5. That's a beautiful looking model, and I love the display base you built for it!
  6. Just opened my box last night for the first time, to tuck the PE I just recieved away before I lose it! The kit looks great and your finished model is fantastic! I can't wait to get started on my own.
  7. Thanks for the review! I just recieved my kit yesterday (after cancelling my Airfix USA preorder and buying one from overseas ).
  8. Hmm... If I had to pick, I really like that camo over black version!
  9. I believe a company named Kiwi Resin Models made or plans to make a kit to convert the 1/48 scale Italieri SR-71 into an A-12. Not sure if its currently available though (the only on line source I found lists it as not available).
  10. I admit I'm no expert on the Tornado. I've seen Revell kits marked as "IDS" and the cover art shows them with air to ground ordnance and "ADV" with air to air ordnance in the cover art. Do these represent actual different models, or is the mission ordnance the only difference?
  11. I've been thinking of adding a Tornado to my stash, and had a question. Doing a web search, the predominant recommendation seems to be the Revell model. In my searing though, the model that has caught my eye is the Testor/Italieri MRCA Tornado in German markings: I really like the paint job on this and the four Kormoran(?) missiles it is carrying. Revell does not seem to offer an "MRCA" version of the Hurricane, or a model that includes this weapons load out. So, how is the Testors kit? I have not been able to find much info on the model and I'm not sure how it compares to the Revell Huricanes? If the Testors kit is really inferior, is there a version of the Revell kit that could be converted into this German MRCA version? Thanks!
  12. I'm late to the party, but the Meng F-102 is on my shopping list, so I'm enjoying that build immensely. I have no immediate plans for the Hasegawa F-16, but that's proving to be interesting, too.
  13. Beautiful job on that aircraft! That paint job is really eye catching. I have to admit, the Russians have some really colorful camo patterns on some of their aircraft, compared to the rather monotonous grey-on-grey the US currently uses.
  14. Thanks everyone for the input! I may just model my eventual F-8 from another carrier, then, unless maybe I can find a markings for aircraft from the USS Oriskany!
