    Giving up 1/48.

    Thanks for the advice and the kind comments from @exdraken! I would like to build a wide variety of subjects and am hoping to be able to improve my 1/72 kits to the standard that I build 1/48 to. Given the availability of aftermarket and improved moulding I'm sure that is possible. I have a Fujimi Phantom FG.1 to trial, as they are effectivly a scaled down Hasegawa FG.1 it will be interesting to see how it pans out.

    Thanks for the replies. I'll bear them all in mind. I figured the Fujimi Phantom kits would still cut the mustard, after all they are almost as detailed as the 1/48 Hasegawa kits I have built for so long! Good to hear the Italeri reboxing is the same kit too.

    I know, but mostly British jets or British built. The joy of 1/72 is I can fit more stuff in my cabinets, and I can also build an entire Ark Royal air wing with Gannet, Buccaneer, Wessex, Sea King, Phantom without going into vac form or resin. Tornado variants can be explored and US stuff like the F-111 are far more manageable.
  4. Having done a survey of the stash, and then looked at my house I have decided to thin out my collection and am looking to abandon 1/48 jets. The main period I build is Nato Cold War, so my question is what do you think the best kits are to look for in 1/72? British Phantom: Hasegawa/Revell in 1/48 replaced with Airfix or Fujimi? Tornado: Revell in 1/48 replaced with Hasegawa or Revell? Harrier: Kinetic in 1/48 replaced with Airfix? Any other gems in 1/72 from this period appreciated. Thanks.
  5. I have some cars in my stash... Count me in!
  6. Fantastic! Hands up who will build theirs whilst listening to 'The Shepherd'.
  7. I'm in for a couple, a representative trainer and a Berlin spy plane me thinks.
  8. I'll take a couple for sure, one to build and one to stash.
  9. Defiantly in! I am going to build the Halifax my Grandfather flew as Nav on with 433 Squadron, 6 group, from Skipton-on-Swale. He was a Brit, married to a Yank living on Rhode Island, they split up in early 1940 and he went North to join the RCAF. Ended up being a Nav on Halifaxs. Funnily enough at the end of the war he had to de-mob in Canada, then pay his own ticket back to England. Rules is Rules! So Halifax Mk.III BM-J of 433 from the Revell kit in 1/72 scale is my entry.
  10. Yup. I'm in with something from the bottom of a dusty box.
  11. I'm in. Probably something with black paint on the bottom and turrets. Fighters get boring after a while.
  12. Hope we get a Xenu livery for the Scientologists! "...Xenu was about to be deposed from power, so he devised a plot to eliminate the excess population from his dominions. With the assistance of psychiatrists, he gathered billions of his citizens under the pretence of income tax inspections, then paralyzed them and froze them in a mixture of alcohol and glycol to capture their souls. The kidnapped populace was loaded into spacecraft for transport to the site of extermination, the planet of Teegeeack (Earth). The appearance of these spacecraft would later be subconsciously expre
  13. I have the Eduard Tiffie 1/48 Typhoon, which was a candidate for the ANZAC group build, but if I can't wait it can go here being a Car-Door Typhoon which was an Interceptor originally!
