    Mirage F.1 EQ/ED - 1:72 Special Hobby

    I've had a test fit of all the major components and I think Special Hobby may have tweaked the wing moulds. The under wing inserts are still a little thick but they appear to be much better than what was reported in the initial boxings. Mike.
  6. Well, the box art is not untypical for Aoshima! Their initial releases of the USS Wasp, HMS Ark Royal, HMS Hermes, the Balao class submarine and the special edition Hayasui were in similar style. In my own view it isn't any different from the box art of, say, a Spitfire or P-51 having a Bf 109, Fw 190 or Zero going down in flames behind it! There's a New Ship Related Releases thread in the Maritime modelling section that has many forthcoming kit and aftermarket releases listed. Mike.
  7. The most likely candidate will be Starling Models though it's too soon for them to have any stock yet. I have one on the way courtesy of HobbySearch though HobbyLink Japan have them in stock as well. Mike.
  8. I'll agree with that! It's a very nice kit to put together and you don't need to use all that much in the way of filler, either. Just a tad around the tailplanes and fin though if you take some more care than I did test fitting you shouldn't need any. The only thing to watch out for would be the wing trailing edges. They're a bit thick but some careful sanding will take car of that little foible! Mike.

    Now that does look good! Mike.
  10. Good, good, good! That's another Special Hobby kit to be added to the stash, though I'll be holding off for the IDF/AF version. Mike.
