Only a couple of months late for my B-25 gunship build. LOL I had to scratch 'em using rubber bands and PE for the nose guns. Wish I'd had these then!


Be careful of the toes that you step on today for they may be connected to the ass you have to kiss tomorrow.

Hi John,

Sorry for the delay but from conception to castings can be a bit of a pain, the problem with this was the material I had to use for the flex not to soft but still has lots of flex.

Dang, the day I seal up the fuselage of my B-25 is the day I find out about this. I wonder if there would be some way to wiggle them in later on through the windows. They look way better than the kit ones, plus with MDC's track record of high quality stuff.

 


Any word on pricing?

Well that does it!  I had put a B-17 of Waffling Hold with the local drug dealer.  After seeing the prototype of the ammo belts and chutes I'll be informing Bead Boy that I will take one.

 

That Bicentennial F-4 will never be finished now.
