    Nicely done!

    TH-55 Osage Inbound

    Ooooo... I just might be able to turn that guy into a 269C or C-1 with some work. I can definitely turn it into a 269B without modifying much. This ought to be a good kit.

    By to the A380

    Nope, I mean the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. https://www.boeing.com/commercial/787/#/by-design Image belongs to Boeing and is used under the fair use clause of US Copyright law.

    By to the A380

    Now what about the Boeing 787? Did Boeing kill that project or is it still going? I haven't heard much on it one way or the other but thought it was supposed to be a direct competitor for the A380.

    Hobbyboss B-24: no turret fix in sight

    You design "real airplane parts"...Well good for you..."A man's got to do something for a living...." "Dyin ain't much of a livin boy." Sorry, I digress...got The Outlaw Josey Wales on the brain. There are a lot of us in this community (me included) that are now or have been directly involved in the design, manufacture, operation and maintenance of REAL aircraft so your chest-beating statement doesn't carry much weight around here (at least as far as I'm concerned it's just chutzpah). On the contrary, it gives me the impression that you think you're better than we...which I assure you, you are not.... However, I will give you the benefit of the doubt as written text is at best, hard to determine inflection and meaning. Having said that: You cherry-picked one topic but totally missed the main point of Thierry's post as I understand it, so let me attempt to clarify: MANY of us, for whatever reasons, cannot do what you did, nor have the time to do what you did since our "modelmaking" time may in fact be more limited than yours. I didn't think I needed to say this but: Skill, while learned, is grounded in a basic talent which is NOT equally distributed among humans. Therefore, those that do NOT possess the innate abilities or learned skills to create such things rely on others that do or go without. Those people so able and skilled may also see an opportunity to create a little revenue for themselves in the process.... That's what's called, in plain English, entrepreneurial spirit. I wouldn't expect a "real aircraft design" person to understand that though so suffice to say, peeps like makin money.

    ZM Ki-45 arrival

    What I wrote may be incorrect but I got the information from here:

    what block does the Hobbyboss B-24J represent?

    Indeed.... Every retailer I've checked so far that advertises the kit (as well as Ebay retailers) all have stock of this kit [Hannants alone is listing more than 10 in stock] excepting Squadron which may never have gotten the kit from rumblings I've heard/read across the internet at a previous date and Lucky Model. IF it were selling well, you'd think that at least some of the retailers would be OOS? To add to Jennings point, you'd also have to know how many are/were made to draw that conclusion. IF HB popped out 5,000 and they've only sold 500, I wouldn't call that selling well; but as Jennings said, you'd have to get that information from Hobby Boss who probably aren't going to release those statistics to the public.

    Ki-45 question

    Thanks for the update on the possibilities Dave. I haven't much reference material on the Nick but some of the material I do have may show some of these other options.... If that proves true, I may be able to make some "one-off" decals for markings that aren't available (yet). I do like the night fighter versions though as well as the body ramming version (Japanese term eludes me at the moment). Like many of us, I like marking options and while the two included in the kit are nice, I'd prefer something a little more "off-the-beaten-trail".

    ZM Ki-45 arrival

    Let's also remember what was said in another thread about buying extra sprues from ZM (I wish I could find that thread).... ZM apparently will not sell additional sprues (like Tamiya does) from their kits because of the simple fact that they need to break open a kit to do that which results in an unsellable kit for them. I'm not sure how they handle missing parts replacement but I'm sure there's someone here that knows.
  11. I'm most likely missing it but I was attempting to delete a post I thought better of and discovered there's no "Delete" button on the post box any longer (at least it's gone on my display). So I just deleted the content and added "Deleted" in the text field. If this has changed, where is the button/control/procedure for deleting a post?

    1/32 Tamiya P-51D Mustang "Old Crow"

    Hey Tolga, that's some nice work there. One note. The "curvy" pieces behind the seat armor are air ducts and were black plastic (if memory serves). I don't have any photos of that area available to me at the moment but I'll see what I can find. It nay be too late to correct it but in case it's not, I thought I'd call your attention to it.

    P-47 D25-D28 Engines

    If you used this type of engine... for your bubbletop jug, you've installed the wrong engine. Below is a representation (if not the actual engine) of the correct engine for the P-47D-25 through P-47D-40
