  1. Buying the plastic, PE, mask, resin and a set of decals comes in quite a bit cheaper than buying the full kit. Makes the price of the full kit appear interesting and going the individual parts route a better option, or are my calculations wrong?
  2. Lovely finish, looks great! I'd also like to know how easy the build was, things to watch out for etc?
  3. I always did like the look of the Vigilante and yours looks great, well done.
  4. Crikey, that's quite something. Stunning! I'm about 2 months into a single model and have only just started applying paint. What you've done would take me a year or two and not be remotely in the same ball park in terms of quality..
  5. The result makes your struggles worthwhile I reckon. Lovely job and SAAF too - what's not to like!
  6. Interesting back story, thanks. That's not one, but two things I've learned today - I'll call it a success
  7. Aaaaaaaaah.....!! I did wonder if that was the so called Mandela Effect in action. Berenstein, Berenstain, Martin, Martian.. Thanks for that - solved a year or two long minor mystery
  8. My experience is the complete opposite of yours. One of my biggest 'why didn't I try this earler ?!' moments in modelling was when I switched to acrylics. What I could do in 6hrs with enamels I could in one with acrylics. Drying time and clean up were the greatest improvements. No judgements, just interesting how we differ
  9. One of those schemes I feel I need to do one day to fully earn my modelling wings. You've done a very good job, looks great!
  10. Sorry about your fingers Lovely collection! Interesting size comparison.
  11. Actually, a braai usually goes on for hours and hours (weather works with is over there) , so if you drop in now, now-now, or just now, it probably won't make a difference!
  12. I'm originally South African. There are other South Africanisms that I brought over to the UK that I've had to abandon due to the frequency of blank stairs I received. A traffic light is a 'robot' in SA and a roundabout is simply called a 'circle'. There are also three versions of the word 'now'. They are: 'now' , 'now-now' and 'just now' , for each one you should add an increasing period of time to your expections of when the action will take place. 'Now' means within a few minutes, 'now-now' means anything up to 30 minutes or so and 'just now' could be an hour, could be a few hours. To mconfuse you even more, they're interchangeable, depending on who you speak to. If you've read all that, you'll now know what it means if a South African tells you to 'meet me now-now at the robot by the circle'. No thanks necessary!
  13. I've never completed any dual build I've started so congratulations on that alone! The results speak for themselves though - they both look superb. Well done!

    GWH Su-35

    Can anybody in the know tell me if the following 2 kits contain the same plastic? I have the one on the right but would prefer to build it as a Russian Air Force machine on the left. Scalemates mentions new parts for the red box and all I can see is the addition of a resin pilot and Chinese decals. If they're the same plastic then it's a case of new decals only but I'm not clued up on the Su-35 or these particular kits so could do with input by those who know. Thanks!

  16. Well worth the trouble! Great result!
  17. I do like a SAAF Mirage. Nice result!
  18. Just my approach, Dennis. Try to be fair, transparent and feel comfortable with any transaction. Don't let yourself be convinced to do something you're not happy with. Good luck!
  19. So sorry for your loss Eric.
  20. I'd agree. Big improvement. Interesting project and one I don't have the skills or patience for!
  21. I was wondering where this build had gone to Stunning result Markus! Really good!
