    Tamiya Pricing

    It's not a big deal as long as your cart is empty and it's easy to go look and delete. However, for me, it's a PITA because I usually add what I want to the cart (as I do with Scale Hobbyist and SB) and when I reach a certain level I pull the trigger. But when you add something from Tamiya to the cart and then you have to go "look for it", check out the price and delete, it's just a little inconvenient. That's all.

    It's been a while!

    When I was doing it it was just reviewing kits. But now that I'm retired I will try to include some builds as well.

    Ron sorry to hear about your condition. I've been dealing with pain every day for the last 6 or 7 years. I have uncontrolled diabetes (my sugar keeps going up and down no matter what I do). As a result I have really bad neuropathy. I also have very bad arthritis in my knees and hands. Not long ago I had a mini stroke that affected my mobility. Man, getting old sucks rotten eggs big time!

    Hello everyone. It's been a while since I've been here or even posted here. The reason for my absence....life! The last time I was here I've been having some health issues. Well the issues got worse and worse. It got so bad I could not even stand, much less walk, for periods of time. It affected both my personal and professional This year was the worse. The first three months of this year I spent more time @ home than at work. There were days I could not even get out of bed. I had to retire from work on disability 3 weeks ago. Since then, I'm happy to say, I'm feeling a lot better. I still have days I can barely move but the pain is manageable. So, I'm currently working on redoing my hobby room in my apartment and will be doing some new videos for my YouTube channel. I will start doing some build videos and get back into building again. Anyway, didn't mean to drag this so long but just wanted to get re acquainted with the Forum and the people in here. So I'll be seeing you all around.

    Make the others jealous

    Hi guys! It's been a while since I posted here last, been kind of busy with work, health and life issues in general. Anyways, I've had this kit for about a week now and finally found the time to post it. It came from Emodels.co.uk in the UK and took 3 days to get to me. Great service!

    Norbert, can you print stuff from a CAD file/files?

    Hong Kong Models 1/32 B-17E/F listed...

    Diff vendor.
  12. I don't know if this was announced here before. I just found out that Scale Hobbyist has the HKM 1/32 B-17E/F listed as "COMING SOON" at a price of $279.98. https://www.scalehobbyist.com/catagories/Model_Aircraft/b-17e-f-flying-fortress/HKM00001E06/product.php?s=0&t=0&pg=2&ppp=48&sb=stocknumber&so=a&e=0&era=0,6&sc=32

    Thunderbird and Blue Angel planes crash today

    The Thunderbird F-16 crash-landed sliding on its belly to a stop. The photos show it lost the nose and canopy but otherwise shows little damage. Of course the damage may be more extensive to those doing the inspection on site. I think it's probably cheaper to replace it with one from the Bone Yard in Arizona than to try to restore this aircraft.

    What are we actually missing in 1/32?

    I'm still hoping for a Curtiss JN-4 Jenny, a Grumman J2F Duck, a Sikorsky CH-54 Tarhe, Sikorsky S-38 and S-39.

    Kev, I honestly have no idea. All I know is that this special edition is the one with resin and (I think) PE parts. I got interested in this aircraft after reading an article on SAM magazine on this kit.
