    Aztec Models D48-048 decal sheet issues?

    Hi there, lads and lasses Last Wednesday I’ve been intending to buy Aztec Models D48-048 "War for the Malvinas/Falklands Part 1" sheet, which as you all know, it’s long out of production now. I remember having e-mailed Aztec early this year in order to see whether they would reprint this sheet (sheet availability show it as out of stock in the page), and had an e-mail reply from them saying that they would probably reprint this sheet in view of the number of new-tool kits released, which participated in that conflict (mind you, there’re still subjects coming out next year, such as the Kinetic 1/48 IA-58 Pucará kit and perhaps a Harrier GR.3 as well). I know a couple local modellers who still had these sheets intact; one of them had it available for selling. It was when I called this modeller on the phone that I learnt from him that the sheet he’s got suffered from decal shattering which, unfortunately for me, prompted him to remove it from publication on a local page. Then again, it was from this very same modeller that I learnt that there have been some other complaints regarding the decal shattering on this same sheet. This bloke said to me that he had purchased five of these sheets back in the day, and that it had only been this last sheet on which he had noticed the decals shattering, mostly the larger roundels - both Argentine and British - but also on the stencils warning of air suction on the A-4P intakes and some lettering, for instance. Here you’ve got some piccies he provided me with to show the shattering: For those of you who have these sheets still unused, could you please check whether or not your samples suffer from shattering as well? Incidentally; and, if you wanted to sell yours, here you've got a safe buyer. Thank you in advance. Cheers, Unc2

    1/48 Hasegawa Skyhawks - what parts are in what boxes?

    Indeed, Antoine! You've got the guitar solo (and the SuE), on that video, which is lost in the promo video of the band, strangely. People on Youtube wondered what the band was on this video. Not my all-fave Gothic Metal band, but this one is good. Besides, Sharon Den Adel is cute, and from the Neerlands Cheers, Unc2

    1/48 Hasegawa Skyhawks - what parts are in what boxes?

    Got them decals today...!!! Wow, finally! Customs notification occurred in October the 28th, and the mail dropped them just today. What's worse; shipping date on the envelope stamp reads August the 18th!, which means the Argie Customs + our postal system is even slower than a poor handicapped, blind snail! Jesus! Couldn't it have been slower? @RMP2, you're welcome to my A-10C decals if you ever need them. I'm just using the A-10A ones, as I don't like the LASTE birds. Cheers, Unc2

    1/48 AMK Kfir C2

    Yeh, Ian, YEH! Me's following. Thought the AMK kit had the machined brass pitot and AOA, like the Kinetic/Wingman Model kits? Cheers, Unc2

    Airfix 1/48th Hawker Hunter F6

    Lucky Melchett...!!! Awesome build, General. The new Airfix Hunter kit looks spot on. The nose, the base of the windshield, the aft canopy fuselage, wing and tail tips, wheels (how about the placement of the main landing gear wheel bays which they said was wrong on the Academy kit?). Still wondering what to do with my two remaining Academy kits (an F.6 and an FGA.9); need to get the new Arfix kit right away. Dying to see whether or not the Heritage T.7 conversion set fits this new kit. Cheers Andy! Unc2 PS: Sis Astrid says hi. She asks me whether you could post piccies of YOU instead. I told her that she should be careful about Mrs Melchett because she was a loose-head prop back in the day!
  7. John! Just wanted to tell you that ever since I got a sample of your 1/48 Vulcan B.2 kit, I've built an altar in your honour, to which I bow down to every morning. Respects, my mate! Unc2
  8. Noooiiiceee fingernails, Gabor...!!! Such delicate hands you've got.

    I'm afraid you'd need to order the whole Aconcagua Resin Model set + a good set of decals provided you ever wanted a decent kit in Argie Air Force/Navy service to turn out of that limited edition boxing. The resin shape is totally inaccurate for the ADF radome - think not even the VOR antennas are right, and the anchors for the naval A-4Q COAN are a just laughing joke. Had better stay out of it, unless you want a Scooter in any other service than the Argie armed forces. Cheers, Unc2
  10. Uh-huh... Matt, you'd get total psycho if you ever came down here to taste our grilled chorizos And that's not to speak about trying our grilled bife de chorizo And what to say about the delicious grilled bife de lomo Just one bit and you'd be around the bend, I think... Basket case! Cheers, Unc2
  11. ¡Hola, Luis! Indeed; or those of Grupo de Aviación Nº 9, with their desert camo. You dig? I'd like to build a two-seat in that scheme. Hi, Enzo! Yeh, it's a matter of taste, I guess. By small scale do you mean smaller than 1/48th scale? I couldn't ever build kits in 1/72nd scale. The ugliest ever aircraft there is out there - and which kit I built - the Hobby Boss 1/48 A-10 NA/W, is quite beautiful when built clean, even with dropped flaps and all. Sometimes I've found the ugliest aircraft to be a real beauty when built clean, including the F-4, which I find lovely. But for instance, the Mirage III/5 family of deltas become ugly as soon as you start hanging those bulky 1300/1700-litre tanks and MERs full of bombs on them. The cleanest they are, the sleekest and sexy. And the more weathered, chipped and faded the finish, the more it makes any 1/48th scale kit look nothing like a toy-like thing. Cheers, Unc2
  12. The clean F.6 ought to be the most beautiful aircraft in the whole world... Now, if only this Xtradecal sheet existed in 1/48th scale That Hunter in Chilean service is what I'd be after. Cheers, Unc2
  13. Yeh, granted, but your asking GWH for some replacement fuselage halves for their 1/48 Su-35 kit would be as easy as if I asked Aconcagua Resin Models, AeroCalcas Argentinas or Condor Decals to hand me a free sample for you. What's your pick? Cheers, Unc2
