  1. If they did the A’s and other non late blocks plus a 2 seater they would sell a pile. Big money though...
  2. What price inside the EU? Only stuff i have seen on Ebay is near 40€. Im waiting to see it shipped from Korea who do good shipping rates and grab several.. Great looking chopper, plenty of weathering opportunities. And its coming soon in DCS as well!
  3. Be aware Academy are repopping the 58 in March fir 1/3 of the Revell price... https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10026635 be even cheaper direct from Korea..
  4. To give you some idea of what 1% of Smug Mug is capable of in under an hours work.. Shameless sharing! https://www.vortexaviationphotography.com PS im a big believer of taking ownership of your photos to guarantee changes in terms etc wont remove very valuable info from still being shared years later.
  5. Smugmug, i have been with them over 10 years. I run a photography website off them and astonishing functionality that i use only a fraction of. Cant recommend them highly enough.
  6. Maybe they corrected it after the D/G release...?
  7. I have not assembled it but the detail etc is simply fantastic. The seat alone is stellar. After buying 1 i bought another 2...
  8. Love to see a Viggen in 32! Just love the splinter schemes...
  9. Same here. Ive had more bad Ebay purchases from the USA from careless sellers. The big Chineses dealers package fantastically and ship quickly.
  10. Hopefully they scale them up! I have the 48th ones and they are a nice selection..
  11. Love to see Eagle editions do a sheet or two. The kit comes with early and late exhausts which is nice.. So decals please!
  12. Did Trumpeter come into posession of the molds from 21sr Century at some point?
  13. Why on earth would Hobbyboss/Trumpeter rehash the 21st Century kit when they have the CADS of a very nice 262 in their library already released in 48th and 32nd? If its simply the 32nd kit blown up it will be a great start point for a collection center piece.
  14. If your getting serious about F-4’s id highly recommend these drawings as a great place to start. Particularly the poorly represented front end. http://soyuyo.main.jp/f4/f4e-1.html PS that was an awesome find on FB of 680 taxiing in after Bolo. Only photo of the aircraft showing the front other than those i was told where taken by Olds crew chief with his camera on the pre flight. Seems Robin Olds memory is to be trusted unlike what a thousand voices saying it wasnt. I guess having photos of the aircraft you flew standing by its nose helped his memory..lol.
  15. Hi Barry PM me your email and ill forward you the image with info. cheers Darren PS just notced somene posted them. They where sent to me via Gen Olds daughter and an artist andcwhere taken by his crew chief with his ever present camera you see in many videos. The images where of the Bolo pre flight around his aircraft.
  16. And dont forget to leave off the IR sensor..it was a dorkless F-4C...as where several of the Bolo aircraft a great topic in its own right. The image shot by his crew chief with Gen Olds camera post walkaround prior to the mission shows exactly what he had told Keith Ferris prior to him painting his great artwork. 680 was quite heavily paint chipped being a early camo bird many air raft had poor paint application. The images from before and post mission show quite a bit of paint scuffing on the splitters etc. https://static.thisdayinaviation.com/wp-content/uploads/tdia//2013
  17. Couple of aggressors in 32nd and a few standards in 48th..okay about 5..lol. Your stencils look amazing..so couldnt hold back..lol. Great work..worth every cent.. An early F-4EJ set now please..lol... Thanks awesome product!
  18. The Spad reboxes are already out in Japan. Hs129 on the 23rd Nov.. Did they actually sell any 129’sat Telford?
  19. Perfectly happy to see WNW stay with WW1. Beautiful kits of great subjects on an era that was effectively dead to 98% of the modelling community brought to life. If Roden had half a brain then a retool of the Spads to a higher quality would see the expanded WW1 market generate sales they have never seen. They just have to be good ie like the CSM Nieuport, and if they did they could of sold a boat load.
  20. Hard to believe that Revell can release two such contrasting kits in the 262 and the F-18E. One very well engineered and researched that fits beautifully in the 262. The other probably the most horrendous fitting kit ever inflicted on the modelling public. Hard to believe they are from the same manufacturer but glad a great team was looking after the 262.
  21. Well it gets you a significant discount if you can afford Eduards insane shipping prices. P-40E is widely available for not much ie 3200¥ so it better not be to mch. Love those Bunny markings!
  22. Excellent news. Be grabbing a pair of each. f further consideration if you think JASDF 104’s sell the F-4EJ and Kai have some brilliant schemes as well. Other than gunnery meet aircraft done by Platz with a variety of sharkteeth again poorly served for a huge array of schemes in 48 and 32... Particularly given Tamiya has a dedicated F-4EJ in 32nd screaming for decal variety. http://nabe3saviation.web.fc2.com/aF42j.html
