  1. Two more goodies for the Airfix 1/24 Hellcat: Aerocraft brass undercarriage set and resin tyres.
  2. Horrible news. One has to wonder if the practice of selling rides on warbirds might be coming to an end.
  3. In that case, and given the "neither fish nor fowl" nature of the kit, I think your best course of action would be to simply build it out of the box.
  4. It's not a bad kit, but imo it's best use is as an update set for the venerable Swallow/Tomy/Doyusha A6M2.
  5. If you can't contact CR, you might consider this: https://www.lfmodels.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_75_85&products_id=2284 I know it says 1/28, but iirc there was a discussion here a while back where someone was saying that LF's 1/32 Fokker prop appeared to be a bit overscale. If so the 1/28 stuff might work for you.
  6. *sigh* I can only assume the cgi people knew this was wrong, only to have the director say something like "You know what would look good here? A couple of bombs hanging from the wings!". Most of the rest of the effects are the same sort of hyped up rubbish, but there is one small thing for which I have to give them credit: This is one of the few depictions of "the fatal five minutes" that correctly shows Akagi with only a single shotai of fighters on deck. So, bully for that, I guess.
  7. Hi. These items are listed as OOS at SB. Any chance they will be available again? AMS32018 1:32 AMS Resin F-86 Sabre 120-Gallon Combat Tanks #32018 AMS32026 1:32 AMS Resin F-86 Sabre Corrected Nose Ring & Gun Panels (KIN kit) #32026
  8. Is anybody here sufficiently knowledgeable about WWII footlockers to know if this is legit? https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Item/74775903
  9. This is the only 1/24 seated USN pilot I am aware of: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-print-models/miniatures/figurines/us-navy-pilot

  11. Allow me to sing the praises of your 1/24 USN WWII pilot figure, it's absolutely incredible. Just the thing for anyone building the new Airfix Hellcat.
  12. Merit produced several 1/24 WWI kits a few years back. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/merit-international-62403-fokker-dri--966630 https://www.scalemates.com/kits/merit-international-62401-spad-sxiii--1005613 https://www.scalemates.com/kits/merit-international-62402-raf-se5a--969374
  13. So, this arrived yesterday...
  14. Popular subject, tremendous variety of colorful schemes to choose from, and virtually no rigging? Count me in.
  15. As am I, but I must admit they look great in the photos.
