    Worst model quality?

    for years i thought the AMT DH4 was the absolute rock bottom in mainstream kits;then i discovered the 2 glencoe 48 albatros(???)kits.different size fuselage halves,mismoulded parts,its only resemblance to an albatros was that it included 2 wings

    Why does Hasegawa not include weapons for most of their modern kits?

    simple answer;buy a hobbyboss or trumpeter kit,youll get a decent load for the kit,and enough spares for a second.bought the hboss a7;fitted it out,and had enough left over to arm a hasegawa weaponless kit

    mirror models diamond t wrecker

    finally plucked up the courage to have a go at this.so far the main bugbear has been the heavy sprue gates,but the strange plastic and lack of colour details have also been problems.according to the paint instructions,the chassis,transmissionengine,are all olive drab;is this correct?

    Old moulds for kits

    i think the main problem is the canopies.they wash away at the edges and become undersize;being clear,you cant restore them with filler

    spanish civil war me109 grey

    which,by consensus among S.C.W. modellers,is an appropriate grey?even the eduard instructions are vague,quoting rlm02 or rlm 63.rlm o2 certainly looks too dark to me

    Aircraft of the British Pacific Fleet in 1/48th

    revell/special hobby seafire xv
  11. i think the mac 34 was basically the infantry chatelerault mod 24 with a side mounted drum replacing the vertical box magazine,and the butt removed.don't know if anyone makes 48 french infantry weapons,aeroclub made a 72 ac 34 so might be worth checking to see if they made a 48 version

    ICM/Revell 1/72 Do17Z-10

    I think revell have upped their decals considerably(possibly cartograf?)but i have the icm do215,and the decals look better quality than their older releaSES
