  1. Superb! And although it is still grey like 90% of all Eagles this livery looks amazing!
  2. That looks awesome! Love the already bulky looks of the Viggen, but combined with the Phantom like nose and in USAF colors it looks absolutely spectacular!
  3. Thanks guys, I just checked out the link you provided and it looks very promising. Plus 30 pounds for almost 700 images and 69 diagrams seems very reasonable. I think this will be my go-to lecture on this topic
  4. Hello everybody, so...I had the silly idea to do something new, outside my "comfort zone" if you will and after watching several episodes of "Uncle Night Shift" on Youtube I got myself a RyeField Models Tiger I with full interior detail. I didn't get very far and quickly noticed that this is way over my head. Not necessarily because of the kit itself, which initially managed to stagger me with the amount of parts that completely filled the enormous box, but rather the painting. The instruction is a bit vaque here and there, so I'd like to ask you if you have any recommendations - websites
  5. Thank you very much Unfortunately my English degraded a bit over the years, especially recently by lack of contact with English native speakers but I'm glad it's still comprehensible
  6. This thread is better than any book I read recently, seriously! I'm sitting in the office at work on this rather boring day and I read through all the pages and although I'm bit too young for the FROG era, I still have one particular memory of their kits. First and foremost I love the overly dramatic, but very inspiring box arts of yesteryear, some of which I remember - the Mustang Mk. II or the Shackleton for example. In the early 90's back in my small hometown in Poland, when I was little there was a...I think it was a pawn shop, which doesn't exist anymore and there you could buy lit
  7. Never heard of Minibase before but if they have a Su-30 with Canards in the making, I'll definitely give that a go because this kit looks stunning and very promising and if the fitment is a lot better than Kittyhawks - Happy days! Thanks for another great review Mike!
  8. Wow man! That looks great! Beautiful plane as well!
  9. This is beautiful! Love the idea and the execution
  10. Sounds like the kit is a PITA to build but the result is stunning!
  11. Brilliant build, especially those chrome parts look pristine! Also diggin' that removable roof, very cool idea for presentation, something a little bit different than the usual stuff. Love the whole subject, the Honda Jet is one of the coolest looking modern planes IMO
  12. That's rad! Love it! Also cool, they included a display stand. Makes sense with those massive rotors
  13. Absolute beast! Awesome finish. At the moment I'm kinda glad I didn't pick up this kit while searching for a nice MiG-31, it always was too rich for my blood and I'm very skeptical when it comes to hypes Also I wanted the MiG-31M badly so in the end it came down to the Hobby Boss kit, which was almost half the price of the AMK so even when it's flawed...so be it
  14. Damn! That's one great looking bird! Was thinking about getting one of these but 1/35th is a bit big for my flat But maybe Academy will scale it down one day.
  15. Damn! Your build almost makes the Javelin look good (Unpopular opinion probably but this is one of the ugliest planes ever made for me) Superb weathering and painting, love it!
  16. I'm blown away by this, especially the homemade canards and everything around them. Superb!
  17. Looks awesome! Great job on the weathering, too. Looks very convincing
  18. Oh wow, that weathering at the back looks spectacular! Awesome build overall.
