    Yahu IP's are the same as Eduard P/E you have to remove the moulded on detail of the kit IP and glue it to the kit IP.

    DONG reacted to ade rowlands in I have a confession to make.   
    Well ladies and gents over the past 2 years or so I’ve started many 1/24 and 1/32 projects and completed a grand total of nil, zero, zilch, nada. I don’t think I’m alone in this. So recently whilst moving the modest stash of 30 or so kits around whilst decorating the room they are kept in I had an honest talk with myself. Why was I starting loads but finishing nothing? Honestly I thought to myself was it at one particular stage they stalled out? Was it because I make them at a spare worktop in the kitchen and do occasionally have to pack them up when that space is required for other things? I didn’t come to a clear conclusion on that but I did realise I was repeatedly getting bogged down with detail. Adding this set or that set from Aires, Eduard and the like or adding scratch detail to things instead of just getting on with it. Most of my stalled kits were at some stage of detailing where I must have thought bugger it I’ll start something else instead. Sooooo what have I done? Well my reasoning is 1/48 stuff has come on leaps and bounds since I stopped building and buying it several years ago to go large scale only. I actually built a 1/48 scale kit straight from the box the other week and damn it felt good to go from start to end in a little over a week and just use the box stuff. So several 1/48 kits were ordered, a mini stash was in the building and another honest talk with myself when working nights last week has seen me box up my unstarted 1/32 kits and agree to send them off to a shop that auctions people’s collections off. I know, sacrilegious, burn him at the stake! I have kept my Tamiya Spitfire Mk.IX and VIII and my Tamiya Mosquito ( I couldn’t bear to part with this as it’s my favourite all time aircraft). If in the future Tamiya release an upscaled version of their stunning new tool MK.1 I will be all for it like a rat up a drain pipe. Or if Airfix do one to their new 1/24 standards I’ll have that. I’ve not written large scale off completely you see. I am merely on hiatus from it. I shall still be on this forum several times a day, contributing little of worth as I have done since my first day here. This place has become home, other forums have been joined and let go to the wayside over the years but not this place. Like my Mosquito I just can’t let this place go as it’s a favourite of mine. So keep a look out for more slapdash builds in the small scale section of the site. Well, provided I’m not sent to the gallows for treason.

    DONG got a reaction from Menelaos in What will be Airfix's next 1:24?   
    More than likely a P-51D, F4U-1D or Spitfire XIV because thats what sells. We can all wish for what we want but Airfix has the final word and I doubt a Beaufighter or P-38 is on their list right now. But you never know we did just get a Tamiya 1/48 P-38 so who knows.
     
    How well did the Mossie sell ? I know over here I've seen one built at a show since it came out and I can still go into a hobby shop and find the 1/32 Tamiya Mossie here.  We probably have a better chance of Revell bumping up thier 1/48 kit which wouldn't be bad.

    If your still wanting to do VMFA-531 your only choice is a B or N they didn't fly the S. I have GT Resins B/N conversion for the Tamiya kit and it's totally worth the cost.
     
    I'm building mine with CAM decals  with NK tail codes and all over light gull grey.

    DONG got a reaction from timvkampen in How about: a 1/32 Tamiya P-38 Lightning?   
    Maybe Mike but if Tamiya really wanted to do an F-16D what would it really take 1 new sprue. I think Tamiya uses their resources for R/C mostly then other types off kits look at their armour cataloge for one plus all the 1/700 ships. Look at 1/32 they could have also done a late F-4E with one extra sprue or really updated the F-14 kit.

    Wheels - GT Resin
    Seat - Quickboost ( my opinion) and I've used them on the F-15 and other kits.

    It's a nicely detailed kit for it's age and builds up nice. You will find the gun cover panels will take some work to fit but the rest of the kit fits good. I have the J/G kit and there is some Eduard P/E sets plus CMK Resin sets for it as well. Your best bet is to check out Hannant's site to see what's available.

    I live in a city of 400,000 people and we have 4 shops that cover everything from trains, kits and R/C but no aftermarket. I support 3 of them for paint, glue and kits, only buy aftermarket from Hannant's . We also have a big IPMS club here 50 members (me included) who also support the local shops.
