  1. You can order all 3 from HobbySearch. Excellent service ( and better price than Amazon). https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10051830 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10051829 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10037943
  2. This is an awesome gesture! Very heart-warming
  3. For those who missed out earlier: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10651052 Grab it while you can.
  4. Sorry for my ignorance, which is the correct wing tank mount (part no?) and from which kit? https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10573973 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10525291 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10482893 And what exactly was wrong with the early release? I too bought a few of the initial boxing. Thanks much
  5. Wow, you certainly nailed that blue! It looks perfect! I have this kit too and I hope mine turns out as good as yours.
  6. In those countries, if the pilots of those countries die because of their recklessness, their communist propaganda labels them as "heroes". Goes without saying that military pilots of communist regimes have been brainwashed since their childhood to think that it's ok to kill yourself for the motherland....as long as you take down as many of your (supposedly) 'enemies' with you. So I suspect one of the reasons why they do this is because of their indoctrination. If NATO pilots did the same reckless maneuvers ( or were caught doing this ) , they'd lose their wings.
  7. Hmm, from the photo, it seems they will also release a new 1/72 JASDF Weapons set as well as an Adversary Tomcat i 1/72. Woo Hoo!
  8. Give Durham's another try. This gentleman had very good results with his 1/72 Neptune canopy: (Post # 66)
  9. I'm really curious about his molding process. How was he able to make the resin fuselage as one piece when the cockpit and hollow engine exhaust area would have made it difficult to pull the resin fuselage out of the silicone molds?
  10. Best 1/48 F-5E is from AFV Club & best 1/48 Skyhawks are from Hasegawa. Mig-28: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10285490 Top Gun Skyhawk: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10242197 They do pop-up on E-Bay once in a while. And well done on your Tomcat
  11. Strange that they didn't release any Tokyo 2020 Olympics tie-ins like a Blue Impulse F-86 ( flown during the 1964 Olympics).
  12. That's the Holy Grail of Skyhawks. No idea how to make one because of that unique 2-seat configuration and that one-of-a-kind rear canopy.
