    etendard reacted to LSP_K2 in "Wish list" stats (just for fun)   
    OK, folks, just for giggles (and because I'm especially bored), I've finally done what I'd suggested I'd do for quite some time now, and have collated all of the more relevant data from this thread, mostly to satisfy my own curiosity. Unusual and totally bizarre requests for 1:32 C-5 Galaxies and the like, were summarily ignored as being quite useless for this assessment. Not very scientific I'll admit, nothing at all scientific about it in fact, but just done for fun.
     
    The results are really quite interesting, I think. Of the 196 basic types requested, 42 have been kitted in fairly recent years (the last five or so), and that equates to roughly 21% having come to fruition, or are at least currently in definite planning stages, from one manufacturer or another, sometimes multiple manufacturers. I have only included what we might refer to as more mainstream manufacturers, dismissing all resin kit types, as I believe they do not accurately reflect mainstream purchasing desires for the majority of us. (Note: Many of the kits requested on this list, are in all probability never going to see the light of day as mainstream injected kits (strictly my personal opinion), but some are included anyway, just out of consideration of variety. If it were up to me, I'd probably eliminate 70% of these entries from any reasonably serious contention as being entirely too frivolous. I have also, for the most part, eliminated sub, sub variants, as there is a diminishing likelihood of those specific variants being produced, though possible, I guess. Make no mistake, not every kit mentioned has made this list, as many of those were frequently so bizarre as to warrant exclusion. By and large, what remains are kits that were frequently or repeatedly asked for (not only in this thread, but similar threads that have appeared on LSP (and elsewhere) over the years, and continue to arise from time to time).
     
    It quickly becomes fairly evident that manufacturers do pay attention to the pleas from “our kindâ€;… I can conclude nothing else, as chalking these results up to pure coincidence, would also be purely ignoring the evidence.
     
    It's quite possible that I may have missed one (or more) manufactured kits from the list, as I'm not a walking encyclopedia of what has and what has not been produced, but I believe this list to be fairly complete and accurate. Interesting stuff.

    etendard reacted to daveoh in What's wrong with the Trumpeter Lightning?   
    Mozart I've build quite a few trumpeter lightnings since it was released and yes it is bad in places and over priced. BUT it does build into a lovely model if you are willing to spend a bit of time on it.
    Aries have brought out a lovely cockpit and wheel Wells that add detail too it but forget the reheat cans they just don't fit. I say go for it it will bring out the modeller in you.
    Happy modelling

    Why always rely on the AM guys? Looking at the pics of the real a/c, super-detailing the interior should be within the capabilities of the average modeller. Try it, you'd be amazed!

    Same thing for me.
    However, i vape, you know the electronic cig. And a few months ago i bought a full set with various pliers, cutters, templates to build the coils and so on. The price was about 40 or 50€ and i think it was expensive, but a friend told me it's really worth it. So i did buy it, and indeed it was a great purchase.
    So i think that if people have the money for the Iwata set, it may be a nice tool box, not indispensable, but helpful when you need it.
     
    My very own opinion is that the most useful thing for an airbrush is rather a cleaning set than a tool set.

    good point, there are several reasons for the relative low price, one of these (not the only)
    is that i thought of all those like me aren't able to paint figures (and i'm not interested to learn.....)
    and maybe they aren't happy to pay high price with poor results.
    In addition design and make these figures totally in 3D allows you to bring down the price of the master,
    i believe that the figures quoted before by Aviattic are hand-made by artists of the sculpture
    and i think have high production costs that affect obviously the street price.

    Wow, you didn't waste any time getting into it !  I recommend using the opaque vacform canopy supplied as a guide to getting the fit right and to act as a sort of mask for the coaming - but you'll work all that out.  I'll watch your progress with keen eyes !
