    I'd really be very interested to know how well all of those 'classic' kits are selling and to whom. I built pretty much all of them in my youth as did any of my friends who are into modelling and none of us have any interest in revisiting them now, either out of nostalgia or for any other reason. Life's simply too short at this stage (we've all seen our 60th birthdays come and go) and there are far too many more recent kits out there still to be built to waste time re-doing all of the old stuff.


    Genuinely puzzled as to what market they're aimed at.....


    Monogram represents the best quality vs cost that ever existed in this hobby. At 55 years old I absolutely love building some of their kits. And while I’ve built a lot of their kits I still haven’t built them all. Sad that they haven’t rebounded the way airfix has

    Thanks Laz, this and a few others are on hold for now until I have a sizeable backlog of builds for Airfix Model World completed.

    Hopefully I'll be restarting it fully in the near future (should be picking up a set of Equipage wheels for it soon which will enhance the model greatly).

    Any updates?  I'm thinking of getting this kit and found your build.  Seems that you're pretty close to getting it done if you haven't already

  3. I’ve been searching for pictures or information regarding the inner flap color for the green and grey era C-130’s. My best guess so far is silver or possibly white but not sure....so I thought i’d throw it out to you guys Thanks for your time

    :blink: Whoa!




    It's gonna be necessary to devise some kinda intake trunkin' at the end of 'em resin replacement splitters, as both 'em nose landin' gear bay 'n' cockpit tub will be seen when peepin' 'em nose head-on, methinks... :hmmm:'N' whut with 'em suck-in doors on "they're" side of 'em nose? Those will be seen as well if open 'n' not taken care of.

    111 more posts 'n' me will become demonic!

    Shouldn't you have a hook for a hand?

  5. No. The Foxbats are what I'm waiting for, and a Tomcat A possibly.

    My own beliefs are that 1/48 is for what's too big in 1/32. The SuE needs to be done in 1/32.


    Absolutely this. If you upscale to 1/32 you own the market. Stay at 1/48 and you have a small piece. The French aircraft are relatively small and need to go to 1/32. I'll buy one for sure in the larger scale.

  6. I used the D mold parts and the Alley Cat ones when I built the Nimrod. There was also a weapons bay resin part as well...not sure if it was Alley Cat or not. Anyway the parts were difficult to make work together; part of that was the design of the wing, which is very flimsy, and part was the nature of all that resin. I like the final result, but it was a major pain in the butt. After getting it done I remember telling a friend that I would never build another. Not trying to talk you out of it, just know it is a lot of work, but can be done.

    I have not flat coated the paint yet so the windows are not unmasked, which makes it difficult to see how the new window looks. I will try and get a few pictures and post them so you can see the results.
