  1. Kudos to the pilot of that drone. Note there are very few editing gaps. I assume the first part of video which is going backwards the video was reversed. But to fly continuously like that never hover and not hit anything is impressive. Excellent pilot. Can’t see that having been a preplotted flight. Paul C
  2. Good catch. Went back to o the finished pictures and the windows seem aligned on finished out model. There was some upturn of superstructure towards the bow. Paul C
  3. That is a bit alarming. Trumpeter has had issues with portholes on curved surfaces, example Bismark scuttles. But this looks like a Moulding error and not an easy fix. I believe you are the first person to report this. Paul C
  4. I preordered from Freetime months ago. Called them midday today and was told they had not received their shipment yet. The guy I spoke to said they still planned on shipping them out Monday. 24th. Seems they took the Titanic update off they home page late this afternoon so anyone’s guess as to status. Not sure what real status is but would hate to miss out on first round of this kit as next round may take a while due to current issues in China. it’s out of stock at other locations now. I will wait till Monday and see what happens. Hopefully Squadron keeps them in stock a few more days. Paul C
  5. Spruebrothers and Scalehobbyist both have it in stock. Spruebrothers is a bit high. Still hoping the Freetime orders ship out this week. I’ve been in preorder with them a while now. Paul C
  6. Yes, thanks for the updates. Paul C
  7. Love Pontos. Live their customer support. But for the cost I agree they could spend more time in creating instructions. Many time they jump over steps and then show completed pictures and you have to guess where something goes. I realize there is a language barrier but they could improve a lot by using more steps and pics. I have noticed that on many of their older sets they have redone the instructions with corrections but they are only available on the web. Paul C
  8. Titanic was supposed to be shipping in Late Jan. Have not seen anything on it yet. The 1/200 Scharnhorst is impressive. Announced two years ago but first time I have seen it. Wonder when it will ship. On the list Can’t imagine the 3rd party update sets for Titanic I am sure there will be a ton of them. Paul C
  9. LSP has been a wonderful resource for me. The members are knowledgeable and have no problem sharing. I agree finding other similar sites is not easy. Someday it it would be great to see LAP do a spin off site for the smaller scales. Paul C
  10. I missed the part of shipping for 5.5K, Still amazing eBay would allow such a listing. Paul C
  11. While looking for one of these, I found this on ebay, https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-32-Focke-Wolf-Ta152H-1-SWS-modeling-village/254171907746?hash=item3b2dd386a2:g:BNoAAOSwCINckx4n 5.5K for a 1/32 Ta-152. Wow. Paul C
  12. ZM sometimes will put out just a upgrade set, like what they did on the Horten 2 seat option. I wonder if they will just release a MK103 upgrade, i.e. sprue S, or I guess it's possible they just won't release it all, however the brass barrel set including the MK103 makes me think something is coming in 2020. It would be nice to know this in advance, but I guess it's like many thinks out there now, why show a future plan which would possibly slow sales of the current kit on the shelves, i.e. folks passing to wait on the MK103 version. Paul C
  13. Thanks Dave, I am curious also. Not being that familiar with the Hs-129, I always thought the MK103 was the more supplied cannon. It seems the first release is more oriented to the African Campaign, where the 101 was in use. I believe the 75mm and MK103 were more common in Russian combat. I wonder if the "B3" version will have the MK103 and 75mm. The 75mm is a kit in itself. Paul C
  14. Surprising ZM left out the 103. As pointed out above their original literature claimed both would be available. Guess they will telease 3 sep boxing? As the 75mm version was always a sep kit. Paul C
  15. Jennings, thanks very much for the wings. RBrown, thanks for the painting tips. One question, you mentioned RLM Grey 04, did you mean RLM 02? Paul C
