  1. Interesting, I too ordered some Begemot decals from a Russian seller a couple years ago. They made it as far as the main distribution center here in Houston before vanishing from the face of the earth.
  2. I had a similar experience with some Quinta Studio items I ordered in mid-April. They cleared customs within days, sat for a couple months and then showed up on my doorstep last week.
  3. I'm guessing it's some combination of cost and working with what they know.
  4. 1/5th scale Yak-1b to be used for filming take-offs and crash landings.
  5. Indeed. No wings, no engines = no interest as far as I'm concerned.
  6. Pretty much anything, so long as it has a propeller.
  7. http://flightdecs.ca/ I sent an email a while back and have yet to receive a reply. Does anybody have info on their status?
  8. Bottom line: in the near future I'll be able to build the WNW Fokker (or a reasonable facsimile). Cool.
  9. My latest Goodwill find. The kit came with only one of three white metal props, but casting a couple of replacements shouldn't be a problem.
  10. I ordered several sets of these from Quinta Studios (Ebay) on April 17th. According to the tracking info they cleared customs on April 25th...and have apparently not moved so much as an inch since then. I understand that we're living in unusual times, and I also understand that the seller is in no way responsible for this situation. Suggestions?
  11. Fyi - both videos were done by cgi artist Masaru Tochibayashi, aka "Tochy" or "Tochy Suppon". I suspect he works with a tiny fraction of the budget of the Hollywood folks, but his flight model physics and attention to detail are second to one.
