  1. Is anyone working on or anyone have available any corrections for the first kit?
  2. What you need to look at is the sold prices, as they may be asking these prices but these things just go round and round usually and are never sold. I have seen some kits up for sale for 4-5 yrs and not selling at the stupid prices asked, but sometimes someone may pay it.
  3. The HB hawk is oversize over the wing span approx 10mm and gives the appearane of being generally biggger than 1/48, and the Sea Vixen has a lot of silly problems, and the Tornado has a number of faults. Stick with Airfix or Italeri for the Hawk and Revell for the Tornado, not an easy build.
  4. There is a first issue Lindburg on Ebay at the moment from the US on bid. Revell also issued an F-8 in 1955 but it was box scale approx 1/67, I had one in about 1958, actually I still have it in a sorry state, all done with the hairy stick and Humbrol tar paint and fictitious markings.
  5. Crikey, that will make everyone rush!!
  6. Comes complete with the "revelling" stand as I remember it!! I had a B-52 at the time.
  7. Tamiya No. 14009 1:12 Suzuki RGB 500 Team Gallina is probably the best starting point as it has the 5 spoke wheels and the nearly correct faring, but the seat faring needs some adjusting in the area of the exhaust pipes and the pipes require shortening, also the faring requires the winglets making and decals finding. Also the kits on Ebay are not cheap the cheapest being I can see is £50. This boxing also has the Heron Suzuki on the side of the box.
  8. I have studied that photo and others on the net and if you look closely at the 2 thicker "wires" they appear to be bar which is threaded at the ends and are rolled into an aerofoil shape in between the threaded ends. Also some of the other "wires" appear to be bar.
  9. I bought some recently, it is in tall flatish bottles of 1ltr similar to flash cleaner and is as per the photo earlier in this thread is with other cleaning products. It is also on their website
  10. It seems to have been desgined by a committee of whom either did not meet or talk to each other! To get it to fit there is alot of trimming and adjustment of plastic to get it together. (Hacking about). Tamiya it is not, but it could have been so much better given some recent Revell releases. I have one part built on the shelf of doom at the moment most of building done. The above was my response to the F/A-18E review on here last year. The fusalage body does not fit in th location slot without trimming the thickness down alot, the outer wing will not fit due to the joiner being
  11. Kent Models have it available on Ebay for £118 + shipping. 3 available
  12. Scrap it, as it will be rusty in other places and welding will only be welding on rust . Replacement tank would be the cheapest the option

    PayPal Scam

    All the time from them, Visa and Paypal, closing your account, having £600 taken from your visa account and money begin taken from our Amazon account. Both phone calls and emails. The phone slammed down and all the emails deleted and poeple who are live on the phone are asked if they should get a real job instead of trying to scam people. Don't give them half a chance. ,
  14. As above, it seems to have been desgined by a committee of whom either did not meet or talk to each other!

  15. I have just bought one from Kent Models for £75 + £5.50 shipping. A bargain, I don't know if they still have them.
