  1. Glad caught, but Yes a real annoyance which I got double trouble as they hit both of mine. Would possibly go unnoticed to many as the charges were around $8 to $30 at a time and posted as "Amazon prime" which I do not have an account with. Replacement card sent, then it showed up on other acct. Same type charges but more $$. Only place I could figure both accounts shared is Paypal, but unknown what else was done about it by the banks besides the card replacements. Remember to give new card numbers to any auto pay or direct deposit.
  2. Would be good to go for the years to follow if they would properly modify their P-51D into a B/C...to include the Malcolm hood of course
  3. Thanks for the weak gear warning Kev, mines the Fisher conv. so surely adding some weight. For the measurement issue, even a quick sketch of fixer plug would sure help, showing where best done.
  4. In our scale, it is what pins are actually phor!
  5. Thank you for the updates, very excited these are getting done - Great additions to 1/32!
  6. Thx LSP Ron, did enjoy the tour. Chuffed that Humbrol is still at it, distant rumors here had them going away-some of my best builds have Humbrol finishes. Hope for the Metalcote gunmetal, it is the BEST phor Phantom pheathers...cheers
  7. Hello Jeff, If the application got botched like it wrinkled, folded, etc. when you get your replacement sheet from the kind member THX6576 and when applying long thin strips, best to use the backing paper to your advantage by keeping the wet decal on the paper and laying paper/decal combo onto kit, gently slide aft tip of decal off of paper onto kit, place wet finger onto end of decal now on the model (to hold it's position) then slide paper away all the while allowing the decal to be supported by the paper. Asian kit decals tend to have a thicker carrier film so benefit from any decal softener like Micro sol to conform to surface.
  8. Bravo! Great to see a condemned kit made so fantastic. Excellent work! The boxing with british mkgs. has my initials - a Must build of course.
  9. Funny irony Scott (well, I think) ALMOST my first car was a '67 Mustang fastback in same colors. Back early 80's (we all recall right?) before cell phones,my Dad saw it parked on the corner where he van pooled daily. He got the phone number off the sign, got me and we drove back to use the pay phone at corner market, and the kind lady told me the buyer was right there signing the title.........
  10. Stoked this kit is now available - thanks for the word, and thanks Revell (Monogram). Agree as said above, reissuing the IROC would be super. It would help to get a refreshed set of clear parts, and HOPE they are clear and not tinted, as well as possibly printing the decals in blue...dream emoji here. Continuing to update - modernize my '70 Chevelle orig. 396 (402) SS with it's 502 by going single TStorm charger and FItech boost ref. TBI setup. Got the charger with all accessories like Sanden A/C, mod. power steering pump to also run hydroboost for Wilwoods. High output alternator, all serpentine. Car already has Art Carr 200-4r, 3.70 Eaton posi 12 bolt and full Hotchkis suspension with 17's. With it's Demon 850 i've been able to get 19 mpg. but no tire torture involved. I dislike the ridiculous value personally as I will never sell it, it makes insurance difficult and me nervous when parked out of sight!
  11. If you have them, be sure to hang on to the unslotted stabs from the RF-4 kit as they are most accurate size out there.
  12. Nice choice to help distract the eye and hide the shape issues. The Tamiya EJ has a good JSDF stencil sheet, but for the grey so unsure if wrong colors. Post some finished shots in the Ready for inspection section for us...
  13. Just got my third large order and their as mentioned M117's are THE BEST! In fact, only ones to have the thicker mid strake facet added. All else i've tried have a flat fin. The MB4 Coleman as recently reviewed here by Thierry is well done (used to use them on F-4's) as well as their towbar. I just used Paypal, easy ordering.
  14. Super update Iain, glad you kept at it and you have a partner assisting in this one - great work both of you. You may have said, but once prototype is finalized will each set be printed out, or cast from a master? And this is what LSP is about, smart solutions to the occasional kit issues found in this great scale.
  15. Once I saw that Thierry submitted a review, went to website and they were OOS. So either they have yet to fill stock, or there's some rapid fast buyers!
  16. For sale? Tough crowd! At my chastising they were handing them out free Agree, Revell Tiffie good as a gear up canopy closed ceiling hanger unless you can land MDC bits to bring her 'round.
  17. Short answer is No from the two I have, but it is a small no as it is only due to a sprue gate change for sprue A which has slightly different ailerons and control stick. Looks to me if you were to add the horn fairings (check the instructions for the Richthofen kit #32601) and a small round part at end of stick, could pass. Otherwise, all plastic is identical between kit 32047 D.Va and kit 32601 D.V that I can see. HTH
  18. Hello Maurizio, Checking latest status of this years MB4 Coleman tractor project? So super for 1/32, and hope for 1/48 as well. Also seeing if you will consider the smaller ground support equipment and weapons trailer tug Jeep? Try this google link for decent photos for a look; https://www.easternsurplus.net/GalleryDetails/652/1985-AMC-CJ10A-4x2-Tow-Tug-Tractor-Jeep Cheers.
  19. Would also like to see the Bobtail jeep AGE and weapons tow in any scale. The one with headlights in the fenders. 80's - 90's USAF
  20. I used to drive these 1987-90 at George towing F-4E and G (and raced roommate from washrack once..) semigloss dark green.
  21. One serious LSP, hope it is okay; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYScakP1yqo No politics, just news
  22. All the best to you both, Thanks for supplying your conversions and improvement parts that greatly help the older kits - cheers!
  23. Although toylike, my two 21st Century 1/18 F-104's (George AFB - Canada Tiger Meet) as ceiling hangers along with F-86 and Mig-15 do the job just fine. Along with F-5, a T-38, F-16, or A-7 should also cost reasonably. I would pay more for an F-4, or finish me off with a correct A-10!
