    Wow, talk about getting bent over the barrel - here in Europe the B-24 kit is selling for €134,95 (equal to $155 USD).... Good luck with that... Cheers Alan

    Hi Iain et al., my supplier (shop) told me that the European importer has confirmed that the skinny legs will be cast in hard metal like the other Trumpeter big jet kits so that the styrene plastic legs (oleos) can be glued over them. So I’m pretty sure those metal inserts will carry the weight of the bird!! Cheers Alan can we merge this thread please - too many and it’s starting to get confusing... also seems to be a thread initiated to start a bittchiing session.... please bury it in the main B-24 thread!!

    Scratch 1 billion dollars worth of F22

    Updated link: http://airforcemag.com/DRArchive/Pages/2018/October 2018/October 15 2018/Hurricane-Michael-Damages-F-22s-Left-at-Tyndall-New-Special-Warfare-Training-Wing-Activated-SOUTHCOM-US-Forces-Korea-Nomine.aspx begs the question: what kind of stupidity is at the helm of the AirForce to leave expensive assets in the path of a destructive storm? Such a decision defies any sense of logic...
  11. Outstanding build! I love the finish!! Cheers Alan
