    New, clean topic: HB B-24 Test Shot Photos

    I am not into huge planes like this (where to put it in my apartment :)) but I have to say Golden Times for those who have dreamt of this. I like the mentioning of canvas because it leaves room to improve and develop scratch building skills (even the best kits can be improved). Mitchell, Black Widow, B-17, Lancaster, Liberator, Mossie, Spits, Mustangs, Corsairs, ZM range expanding...crazy really, so seize the moment and enjoy the availability...I just want the F-16A/B (MLU) and D version and a new Tamiya Tomcat haha, now back to building!

    The next WNW kit..? 3 wishes...

    WWI always will have the preference but at some point they will run out of subjects to issue...If this Lancaster becomes a success, and it probably will, why not venture / expand the WNW range and set up a WWII line. There are enough planes that can receive the same treatment as the stellar WWI kits. How about a Hurricane, Bristol Beaufighter, Lysander, etc.?

    Tamiya F-16C Block 32 available again?

    Well, the US site shows it, but has a disclaimer below: https://www.tamiya.com/english/products/list/32plane/kit60301.htm *Please note that some of these items may no longer be available. For prices and availability, contact one of our local agents. Interestingly, the F-16C seems to be the last jet they issued in 1/32 scale (or was it the F-4EJ?)...so, that is longggggg ago....

    Tamiya F-16C Block 32 available again?

    It is one of the most discussed topics: why has Tamiya not pushed further expanding this series into a two-seater and the earlier A/B (MLU) models. It is a bit mind-boggling...

    Zoukei Mura in 2018 - Ki-45 / Hs -129 NEWS

    Why not a cool jet in 1/32 scale....a Phantom perhaps or something else... A proper P-40 for the AVG builders would be cool too...and a P-38..ah, yes, that one...or the Brit Beaufighter ...first the Ki45 and Henschel

    F-11F Tiger 1/32 revival!!!

    while I agree with Tigger that Vacuform is a good alternative it does require a lot more skill and time from a modeler to build an accurate replica from Vacform. Also the tools you need to produce realistic parts can scare off the majority of modelers. I have tried it but I rather prefer a more complete resin / plastic kit as a basis. However, I do not rule out future vacform kits (such as the Streak / Flash which have been in the pipeline of KH forever). Anyway, crowdfunding could work. HpH is doing that with their B-52 in 1:48 which will still set you back for a whopping 775 euro (887 USD)....

    Kitty Hawk 1/32 F-5F

    wow! No, I meant that Kittyhawk could now tackle the F-5A/B series and the T-38 since we all know that Tan model will not be able to get that done...unless we are surprised/
