    How many kits of one subject equals an obsession?

    And I feel already bad because I have two F-4, F-16 and Eurofighter in the same scale... Alex

    Rafale B query

    Nah, both used, and the small tanks were already donated! Could well be, as the range constraint is maybe smaller than flying from Corsica to Libya. Alex

    Rafale B query

    Just did some reseach when I built the Rafale B myself (Libya ops, however). I think they didn't carry the pod on the twin. One reason could be that the two seater has less internal fuel than the single seater, so they didn't want to add even more additional drag. So, if flying in pairs, one had the additional crew member, and the other the illuminating pod. Alex Here is a thread where some items were discussed, hope that helps!

    1/48 Revell Rafale M

    Nice kit, looks really mean with the load! As you wrote, it's correct, Rafale M use only one scalp on the centerline, to avoid load imbalance in case one doesn't launch. But it looks better this way! Alex

    F-16CJ (Tamiya, 1/72)

    Those wishing to see the pictures again, they are now on scalemates: https://www.scalemates.com/profiles/mate.php?id=11437&p=albums&album=40254 Sorry, I deleted the folder after the photobucket-"upgrade"-opportunity Alex

    1/72 Fujimi A-6A

    Nice one. Did I see right that you removed the wing root antennas and rebuilt the stall lips? (I'm building the KA-6D right now, which should be the same kit plus the tanker parts) Alex

    Looking for opinions on 1/72 Mirage 2000 kits

    Well, from what I heard and read, the heller may be more accurate. Italeri/Revell is more based on the prototype, and has some issues with the dimensions. As there is no really good option on the market, I wait until someone develops a new & nice M2000. Alex

    Elon Musk For President Of The World!

    For sure, he showed us how to push the limits a bit further... Alex
  9. One of the first lessons in marketing. Don't charge for the effort you had, charge what the customer is willing to pay! BTT, I must have missed that the sea king is a new tool, looks intersting as well because of the foldable rotor. Takes little shelf space, which is nice! Alex
  10. Whatever it will be - 90% will be disappointed! Alex
  11. Very nice! Agree on the railing, they look far too big for this scale. Subtle weathering too, I like it. Alex

    Revell 2018

    Any ideas about the F-117 and the OV-10A in 1/72? Old repops, I suppose? Alex

    Swiss Centurion Bunker Builder

    Interesting, I did know we had Centurion turret bunkers, I never saw one being built. And I like Image nr. 40 in your link, it's the most represetative one in the gallery! Alex
  14. Hentai? Wait, that's not a model brand, isn't it?! looks great, like a tomcat on steroids! Alex
  15. Just continued a bit on the Scorpion. Can it be that Revell has got the tiptanks upside down on their drawing? I think that the large square panels should be on top, and not on the bottom side. Anyone here who can confirm or deny it? Alex
