    Zukei Mura: a jet in 1/32???

    It seems there are more prop-fans than jet fans on LSP, or is it just me? I see the appeal of WWII subjects, but the Cold War and more modern conflicts have plenty to offer...

    yes, I know. And you may be right...but never say never. Hope springs eternal they say

    Zukei Mura: a jet in 1/32???

    I love the prop kits they issue (I have the wonderful Skyraider and the Ho-229 jet) but when is ZM going to enter the modern jet market? There are enough subjects to choose from. Which would you like to see? - F-4B/N - C/D/J/E etc. - F-14 - Grumman Tiger - Skyray - F-16A/B/C/D/E/F/V...

    Cutting Edge F-4B/N conversion sets

    they complement each other nicely: CE and GT

    Wrong colour on Dutch Decal F-4E sheet

    I had the discussion with Luuk Boerman of Dutch Decal and also pointed this out. He is of the opinion the colour is correct as it "shows" on the pictures. I beg to differ and the faded white is more a result of weathering. It would have been better to have the white version and then weather accordingly (or not as this is a personal choice I think). Photos of that time are not always super HD quality...oh well, happy modelling nontheless

    Kitty Hawk 1/32 Mirage 2000-5F !!!

    It is a very nice subject to finally have available in 1/32!! The Rafale is another of course... But after all these: 1/32 Thunderstreak and Thunderflash please!!!!!!!

    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...
