  1. Whatever you decide, I would recommend against investing in Model Master enamels. I like them, and I have a bunch, but their military color line is discontinued and many colors are becoming harder and harder to find.
  2. Many years ago, I got a ride in a TA-4J; I sat in the back.
  3. The first digit being 1 indicates a gloss finish. I don't know how you'll accomplish what you want using Tamiya's XF series.
  4. I, for one, don't think the price unreasonable at all. When I think back to the time it took to scratch my Beaufighter cockpit...
  5. Hobbycraft's remaining stock was picked up by Hobby Wholesale in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada). They don't even have a listing any longer for the A-36; evilbay is probably your only option.
  6. It sounds to me like you've got a sluggish regulator. I'd work it fully closed to fully open a number of times to see if functionality returns.
  7. Chickamauga Battlefield is a mere 20 minutes from Chattanooga. Well worth the visit.
  8. I use ammonia straight out of the bottle. Five seconds, and the future is gone. Ammonia is equally effective at stripping Tamiya acrylics, too.
  9. Old scale divided by new scale. 72/32 equals 2.25, as Tim said.
  10. If you're missing any parts for the 219, Z-M is very good about supplying spare sprues (for a price, of course).
  11. This might interest you, too. https://www.eduard.com/Eduard/Photo-etched-parts/Template-Access-STEEL.html?cur=2
  12. I thought it a fair and balanced review. Thanks, EagleDriver. I hadn't noticed the lack of color callouts in the manual; the fact that it's in black and white doesn't bother me at all. Assuming I can get a good fit of the wing tips, I applaud HK's use of slide molding on the wings. It's nice to see someone push the envelope!

    My advice: don't give up on the kit decals! I was lazy on the side consoles and tried to apply the decals as a single piece. I thought for a while about how I was going to do the instrument panel. I cut sections out and applied them individually. The result is much better.
