    PE for Aoshima 1/700 HMS Illustrious

    Best thing to do is check the box art, if you have it, or the picture on the instructions. If it matches the pic in my first link, it's the old one, but if it matches that in the second, it's the new one. As an extra here are the box arts for the OLD and NEW versions of the Victorious model, just in case it's that one and not the Illustrious. Mike.

    PE for Aoshima 1/700 HMS Illustrious

    If Exkiwiforces has the old-tool Illustrious I'd agree but if it's the new one it should be worth the effort to upgrade. It's a better starting point anyway whilst we're still waiting for Flyhawk to release the one they announced a few years back. Mike.

    Tamiya 1/16 Sengoku Period Samurai Warrior

    If you want to grab a few references I'd recommend anything by Stephen Turnbull - he's very much the "go-to" man that Osprey Publishing use for their Samurai books. By the looks of it the Mon or badge on the back of his Jinbaori seems to be that of the Tokugawa Clan, although the shape seems a bit off. Mike.

    PzKpfw V Panther (Meng Toon)

    Bonkers, but cool! Mike.
  7. Agreed, but with the proviso that the AMK kit isn't easy to get at the moment (I'm wondering if they only did a single production run, it's that scarce!) and the possibility that when it does re-appear the price will probably increase. Mike,
  8. Very nice indeed! Mike.
