    Very nice. I have that Iwata. I use it alongside my Custom Micron. Nice choice Ade. Iwata has a special tool for removing the cap. Before I knew about it I had broken my tip. Using the tool I have not had a problem. 
     
    These just arrived.

    It has be pointed out to me that a "Must Have" in terms of AM for jets is seamless intakes where you can get 'em ... most of which are corrected if there are dimensional or shape issues ... so I grabbed this GT Resin gear in the order ... for the 3 "Legacy Hornets" and the F and G kits in my possession.

    Some of the reasons for my Jet questions of late. Taken delivery of these this morning. For once my plan to have parcels arrive when I’m at home on my day off came good so I won’t be spending my time chasing them around various courier depots and post offices. 


     


     
    The Dornier was a pain to track down. I know I’m late to the party for this variant and I think it was a fairly limited release as it is. I found 3 or 4 stores that claimed stock and let me order it only to get an email 2 or 3 days later to say they didn’t. That’s one of my major bug bears. If you don’t have something in stock, don’t list it! I know a lot don’t hold physical stock, you order it then they order from their suppliers but it’s just frustrating. I eventually tracked one down from a Spanish web store who actually had it, seemingly their last one so it’s all good. Shipping was very reasonable for its size too, unlike some who wanted €50/60 for shipping alone (whether they actually had the kit or not is another thing).

    Meh, I'll do what I did with their B-24: buy it, build it, and enjoy it as it's the only 1/32 option in town.  Sure, I'd love for it to be more accurate, but it's not going to deter me from buying it.
