  1. That may be my fault Emptied the 'bay of those in the last two weeks
  2. Only the Fujimi ones in 1/72 probably. btw, the XIVs with the Occupation Forces you would have to be careful with. Some pictures were taken while offboarding the Spits from the transport ships where the tips were removed to save space.
  3. If anything, it might even be easier If he's using a filament printer that means it's built up out of tiny strands of plastic. Bigger scales generally mean larger curves and less 'steps' - akin to the higher level of detail in injection moulding in 1/48 or 1/32 compared to 1/72.
  4. Just need them waving their canes and it's perfect
  5. My main issue with that article is that it assumes those are the only ingredients (the warning concerns 'active' ingredients) and no results are shown. Would have been a direct way to alleviate doubt Yes, it will dissolve decals. One touch only. Another 'trick' for stubborn decals that ignore regular decal solutions is Tamiya X20A. Again, one touch only. A second brush will also remove the ink Ask me how I know.
  6. A fair bit of "What a mistake-a to make-a!" might have been heard in the mess room while drowning their sorrows in Chianti.

    B26 question

    It is (barely) visible on this picture.. just above the bar. But the NMF finish and the lack of forward nose gun make this a later version. Or this one (inside the 'R') There's also a walkaround of Kermit Week's B-26 here which doesn't have the port on the hatch. http://cyberplasticmodeler.blogspot.com/2016/08/aircraft-walkaround-vol69-martin-b26.html Neither does this early B-26 (no gun packs or mountings, red dotted star underwing) It probably means check the production numbers & serials for versions. http://www.joebaugher.com/usaf_bombers/b26.html
  8. If we're talking about the pink cap Tamiya A/B cleaner, that's pretty aggressive stuff indeed and even carries a warning it will attack plastic (and not all A/B seals like the stuff) The thing is though, that you would have to get the ratios just right to prevent the chemicals in the cleaner that melt the plastic from lasting too long and keep eating at the plastic. You risk the chance that seam you just welded shut will keep melting and become a trench
  9. mmm.... I don't think it's overproduction - rather smart salesmanship. They know they have a good kit, and the boxed versions ship with multiple options in decals (especially the Expert sets) So they can still sell their runs, but don't need to do 100% of the boxes, manuals & stuff ánd have happy customers at the same time!
  10. Ah. There's a difference, Arma's P&P costs are very much within reason* and pretty standard. Eduard's P&P however increases with every item added even if it is transfers or PE. And listed ex VAT. *they also package rather cleverly - if you look closely at the sprues themselves you'll see they are rather compact but also stackable. So they can put the extra sprue set in the same box which is already half the size of an Eduard box. Smart.

    Spitfire FR18

    Incidentally, note those radiator flaps are fully open on the ground (for the most part) - and judging from what everyone is wearing in the public this isn't a hot summer day.
