  1. Would love to see Hobby Boss tackle something like a Pe-2, Do-17, or B-26 in 1/32. Although, they of course have to do a good job of it. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA

    HB B24 discussion: AM and fixes.

    Ordered and received a set of the True Details uncovered wheels... don't bother. Save your money. They resemble vehicle tires similar to the ones on my Toyota Tacoma... very square. The distance between the brake drum and the wheel is quite large, also. You could fit your hand vertical between the two. Additionally, the hub on the nose wheel is not see thru... the center is solid, which I'm thinking isn't correct for a light-weight nose wheel without a brake mechanism. Back to the drawing board for wheels. Hoping Resin2Detail comes through with their proposed different sets for the B-24 in 1/32, or Eduard comes to the rescue with some nice Brassin ones. - Dennis S.

    AIMS 1/32 Bf 110 G canopy in clear resin

    No sweat John! You tried, and clear resin isn't easy at all. Your set is still absolutely stunning, and an incredible value for whats provided. Thanks for all you do! Looking forward to future projects. Speaking of, have anything new and exciting on the horizon? - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  5. I could easily see Draw Decals jumping all over this one for some of those schemes. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if Roden boxes a Super Stearman in the near future. Have to believe this will sell very, very well. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA

    Eduard Bunny Fighter Club kit in 1/32 - P-40E

    BFC refers to Eduard's "Bunny Fighter Club". FCB I believe refers to Facebook. Since Flipper is from Slovakia, I believe he is "speaking" his native tongue referring to things related to Eduard. English probably isn't his first language, even if it were convenient :-) - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  7. Found these as well, might be worth a look: https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/PSL32012 - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  8. If you can find them, the Kagero Topcolors P-38 books (P-38 Lightning At War Pt. I, P-38 Lightning At War Pt. II, and Pacific Lightnings) all have some early P-38 options in 1/32. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA

    Hobby Boss 1/32 B-24J - Initial Observations

    Resin2Detail is planning on scaling up their 3 different 1/72 B-24 wheel sets to 1/32 for this kit, at least according to their website. Haven't seen them yet though, in any scale for that matter. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA

    Hobby Boss 1/32 B-24J - Initial Observations

    There are a few going, both here in the multi-engined group build forum and over at large scale modeller. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA

    Hobby Boss 1/32 B-24J - Initial Observations

    The ball turret seems similar to the one HK provided in their B-17 series. It does have a few more bells and whistles inside that HK did not have (like the ammo boxes), but it appears to be fairly accurate. Always room for improvement (i.e., has no small armor plate, or a butt pad, hand or foot controls, or shell ejection channels). I don't think the kit has any provisions to have the turret extended; only retracted. Would be easy enough to make it extended though. Size looks comparable to the HK one, and it certainly looks like a Sperry ball turret. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA

    Crew for Avenger/Dauntless

    Not specifically, but Master Details recently released several Navy crew members in 1/32. Might accomplish what you're looking for: https://www.ultracast.ca/product-p/md32058.htm https://www.ultracast.ca/product-p/md32056.htm https://www.ultracast.ca/product-p/md32039.htm https://www.ultracast.ca/product-p/md32013.htm - Dennis S.

    HK Models B-17G Take 2

    Erik, once the images are uploaded into Flickr, you click on each photo, then go to the little arrow towards the bottom right to "share". From there, go under the BBCode, copy the link, and paste it into your text here. Should work like a charm. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA

    1/32 Aftermarket Turret Market?

    Oh yeah, most definitely more to it. But my understanding is that companies like Tamiya start with the scan, and essentially work backwards within those boundaries to make a kit that builds together inside those confines. It's a good start I suppose :-) - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
