  1. Bummer, no RPL-541/542 tanks, only the RPL-501/502. I'll have to wait and hope the 2000B/D/N comes following fast and comes with them.
  2. Mistercraft (which is a Polish company , not Czech btw) is regarded as an "entry level" kit provider i.e. mostly older forms of french ir polish origin which had outlived their glory days. They have some nice decals though and are fairly cheap.
  3. The Fujimi Skyhawks are being currently re-released by Hobby 2000, so bagging a few of those might be a good idea. Hobby 2000 also promised to re-release the Hasegawa F-111D/F this year.
  4. I would also mention the Heller Mirage 2000N kit as this is currently the only one kit on the market with ans ASMP (original version - not ASMP-A, but it is a fairlz easy conversion) and the 2000l drop tanks. I also would like to point out the Modelsvit kits (don't know about their availability in your country though) particularly their Mirage 4000 (with weapons) kit, which contains 2 Martel Missiles, two LGBs (BGL-400?) as well as a FLIR and laser targeting pod and the ubiquitus Magic missiles. They also released the Mirage IIIE (which has an AN-52 nuclear bomb included) and a Mir
  5. Good to see a F-111 in this GB. I intend to join in with one as well, either with the F-111G with a maritime strike loadout (would four Harpoons be accurate?) or an RF-111C (could someone comment on the quality of Hasegawas Recon 'pod' and if these aircraft were fitted with more than two drop tanks?).
  6. Added! I recently saw a paper kit of the CGN Belknap. I might go down this route for this GB.
  7. One cannot blame Hasegawa on focusing on their home turf . This is what others are doing as well: - Italeri is releasing predomiantly south European hardware - Revell of Germany is focusing on Germany and the Benelux - Airfix is making mostly british eqipment. - Heller used to release nainly french stuff. - Zvezda is almost exclusively focusing on Russian/Soviet hardware. Even Trumpeter and Hobby Boss are shifting towards domestic hardware. We can be only thankfull companies like Hobby 2000 fill the niche. In fact the biggest surprise to me is,
  8. A World War II pilot is reminiscing before school children about his days in the air force. "In 1942," he says, "the situation was really tough. The Germans had a very strong air force. I remember, " he continues, "one day I was protecting the bombers and suddenly, out of the clouds, these fokkers appeared. I looked up, and right above me was one of them. I aimed at him and shot him down. They were swarming. I immediately realized that there was another fokker behind me." At this instant the girls in the auditorium start to giggle and boys start to laugh. The teacher stands up a
  9. HMS Trebuchet? But a trebuchet launching a nuclear grenade would surely be some kind of a model
  10. Welcome bianfuxia ans exdraken. Love to see some naval dubjects in this GB, and a Blue Steel is always a nice eyecatcher in any collection!
  11. Great choices Dansk! Just remember to build them pointy, or else! The F(B)-111 seems to be on a lot of people's mind (including my own) when it comes to this GB.
  12. Unfortunately Canuck decals went out of business, as I would have loved to build the Bruce the Moose CF-5. Though I suppose I cam always fit in a CF-188 somwhere.
  13. Welcome Chris, Ernie and Adam I look foward to the builds!
  14. Due to my fascination with the "Atomic era" I'd like to propose the following topic: Anything powered by nuclear reactors or carrying nuclear payloads over air, land, sea and space. What-ifs and fictional projects (i.e. Ford Nucleon, Sci-Fi) are welcome. The List: 01. @Chrisj2003 02. @Ernie 03. @Adam Poultney 04. @Dansk 05. @desert falcon 06. @zebra 07. @bianfuxia 08. @exdraken 09. @Marlin 10. @At Sea 11. @dogsbody 12. @ArnoldAmbrose 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18
  15. Count me in. The F-16 stack needs some thinning.
