  1. Oh man, I have some bad news for you about literally every other kit they've released.
  2. I don't know what your build rate is, but if it's anything like mine these days, you could try buying one nice kit instead of three dodgy used ones, and it would come out roughly the same.
  3. It looks so, so good. Wish my builds came out this well.
  4. I recall it being so basic that there was little fight involved, up until the landing gear had to go on. Possibly also the quarterlights.
  5. I've built that! It's a very different kit, much more rudimentary, from an earlier era of limited run kit design.
  6. I feel we're experiencing the painful birth of a new era, as happened in the 1970s or indeed many times in the past. Something I often think of is something James Stockdale said: “You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end—which you can never afford to lose—with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.” Note, that if you oppose any of my beliefs, this does not hold. Give up now.
  7. The high points of cinema, if not human achievement.
  8. Oh man, I was pretty worried when I saw those first images. I generally use tape and begging to get what I want, from decals and in life.
  9. The same grit and determination that have made the Dutch the tallest people in Europe, no doubt. He's an extrovert, such threats hold no terror for him.
  10. See, you made me nervous, and subsequent investigation seems to suggest it is I who am the idiot, and that the seats were normally silver. The P-40E from 260 Squadron that was found in the desert...goodness me, was it ten years ago now? could have had, from the not good photo, either a faded painted seat or a weathered metal seat: https://warbirdsnews.com/warbirds-news/desert-war-kittyhawk-unveiled-in-egypt.html I'm going to assume that they painted the seats for the desert, since the alternative is the hot sun beating down on shiny metal and frying your butt.
  11. He has carried a torch for a little girl who moved away during the pandemic, but informs me he wants to move somewhere that he can marry multiple girls. Could be some trouble in his future. Just say the pilot was fidgety and scuffed it all off.
