  1. Yes to a F-106 in 1/32!!!!!!!!!!!
  2. Hi Thx for the suggestion. You may see this from ZM in. bit,........be patient.
  3. Not that I am aware of. I have not looked at the 1/48 nose, did they screw that up too??
  4. I will be there all week. I have tables reserved if the gang want to use them as a netting point or need to drop off purchases. Looking forward t seeing everyone. Not selling much this year so will have time to finally experience the eventsctivities.
  5. Hi, I just got mine and echo Everyone’s positive posts. A real step up from the Wisky kit and on par with the MH-53 kits.
  6. Forgot to mention that the Eduard set comes with very nice two part intake fans and a detailed tail hook.
  7. You need to take a look at the Wolfpack set. They are very nice and have the only correct afterburner of any company, Our GT includes the fuel dump at the bottom of the flame holder. Expensive though at $50 a set. you are correct,our nozzles were mastered by joe, but we updated tke burnet tube and rear fan a few years back. Ours have the fuel dump i mentioned and we chose to make the flame holder part of the rear fan casting. It saved cost so the price is lower ( around $31 I believe) and when you look into the engine get the right visual afffect. It is a compromise that gives one the look and the savings in one set. Adding another part like WPack did is more correct but reflected in the high WP price. The Eduard used PE for the flame holder, it lacks being 3D but what is nice in the set is the hook guide and lock parts you get For the tail hook up lock. These really dress up the are. We introduced a new nozzle this winter and included them in the F-4G Super Set. If feedback is good we will offer them as a separate engine set. You can see these on the F-4G Tamiya item page at Sprue Brothers. it really comes down to what you prefer and at what price. Enjoy, and I really need to get a hosting site soon. Gary ps. If you would like a set of the new ones let me know and I will send you a set to try. Just PM me your info.
  8. you are correct Dave, old Super Bug stuff.
  9. What do you know......Jennings is wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!! first time for everything I guess. Heads must be exploding all over the world! http://www.zoukeimura.co.jp/en/sentiment/oyajiblog_102.html
  10. I thought B/C Mustang would be a logical 1/32 offering as would some F-16's, but no dice and these would be hone run as sales go.
  11. As much as it disappoints many, including myself I have been told on good authority that Tamiya is done with 1/32 jets. YOU would think that a revised Tomcat and a family model F-16 would be no brainers, but that is the word. After the nightmare that Chuck went through with his Trumpy P-38, I would hope that maybe that is a possibility but with Tamiya it is anyones guess. Just my 2 cents
  12. Should have these ready to ship to SB in 4-5 weeks. Will keep everyone posted.
  13. Yes, they are in stock at SB. http://store.spruebrothers.com/product_p/gtr32054.htm There are other items as well including intakes, exhausts, belly straps, pods, and accurately detailed outer wings.
  14. Luca, I could not disagree with you more. Prices are not honest or dishonest, people are and then only in regard to a agreed upon moral code. Dishonest selling is raising the price of items many times over their normal price of essential services or goods in an emergency situation like a pending hurricane or earthquake, etc thereby taking advantage of others forcing purchase at inflated prices under duress. That is what is dishonest and in the US and in most countries there are laws to prevent the practice as it is an awful thing to do. So you are right to be upset over dishonest pricing. That however is not the case here. Selling a non-essential item involving willing participants is normal business and normal human nature. How else does business exist without profit? It doesn’t. Whatever a person is willing to pay in a free exchange is not dishonest at all but completely fair and proper. If in that process prices take some buyers out of the market, so be it. Those buyers may be mad, but nether the seller or the buyer is dishonest. Sometimes sellers loose money on items too, and those loses have to be covered by profits on other items or the business fails. Meaning no disrespect for this simplified explaination, but this is how human commerce works. PS added the next day: There is nothing wrong with not being able to afford everything that one wants, be it by choice or economic circumstance. There is no shame in not being able to afford expensive things or in choosing not to buy based on the price. Very, Very few people in the world can buy anything one wants while the rest of us have to consider the price.
