  1. I had a closer relationship with Revell Germany some years ago. Maybe due to the ownership changes some of the information mentioned below is obsolete but AFAIK Revell (Germany) HQ in Bünde only houses: administration distribution and warehouse product development (catalogue wise) and marketing department packaging mould archive one last injection moulding machine for testshots Actual plastic production is located as you say in Poland, whereas original Revell USA moulds are (AFAIK) mainly located or shipped to China and produced over there. Reboxes o
  2. That’s a very inspiring build! Which nozzles did you use in the end? Pavla‘s for Airfix or Esci?
  3. Great builds, for me personally one of the most interesting modeling topics!
  4. That’s a great Lightning, now I‘m a bit feared takin‘ hands on my Sword kits
  5. That’s a very nice result then! Can please you elaborate on your impression that this is „a really bad kit“. I have some of them in my stash, single seaters as well as twins. Sure, it’s short run and I see some missing location points and the need for strengthen the aileron attachment points but what was bad with yours?
  6. Jur, very sorry about your decal problems. But you are not the first who tells that about Print&Scale. If you want to stick with an orange HT-8 trainer, maybe somebody could share with you the decal sheet of Italeri‘s current Seabat issue: https://www.italeri.com/en/product/2695/2/7 I have two kits of them but I will again have access to them maybe in a couple of weeks.
  7. There are actually some good floats available from DF Helo Stuff https://www.sparks-scalemodelshop.de/p/bell-47-schwimmer-kraftstofftanks-floats-fueltanks-1-72
  8. Looks good! just to be precise, the decals included on the Print Scale sheet are for a HT-8 aircraft (helicopter training squadron) and not for an antarctic development squadron (VXE-6) Seabat. The orange could be FS 12197 „ordinary“ gloss orange
  9. For any reason, this combo-kit can’t be shipped to Germany (says the shop)
  10. Maybe this helps? Seat is from a German 53G https://www.ebay.de/itm/Sikorsky-CH-53-Bundeswehr-Luftwaffe-Heeresflieger-Hubschrauber-Co-Pilotensitz/362914993681?hash=item547f6b5611:g:unwAAOSwKFNeRsuY
  11. Yep - no re-release of the crappy Revell Choctaw/Seabat
  12. Apart from injected rotor blades: Isn‘t that the Extratech kit as with their VS-300?
  13. Plastic of AJ Model provenance, unfortunately nothing new
  14. Experience tells me: Be patient - maybe until next year or some time later...
