  1. OMG, that instruction booklet has more steps in it than does my 1/16 Trumpeter Panther kit! I bet it'll cost a small fortune to acquire the kit. It is impressive though. Don't care much for the subject...it's Russian and what's worse, it's Russian Navy....blech. If it has to be a Russian aircraft, it's gotta be a Mig-25 or Mig-31 to get my attention...now THOSE are some large Russian aircraft... LOL reminded me of an old Wendy's commercial....
  2. The last time I looked, which was admittedly several years ago, these kits were a dime-a-dozen. Now i can't find one anywhere. I'm not looking to buy one, I actually won one in a raffle not too long ago and was wondering what the status of these kits was. The kit is fully shrink wrapped but the box top is somewhat concave due to the shrink wrap "shrinking" a little too much (that's just my opinion). I checked the sold items on Ebay and there were a few that have been sold in the recent past. The selling prices weren't too out of line (between $25-$40) so this isn't going to be a collector kit, so I just may keep it for while. Just curious about the availability in general...I know it's a Hasegawa mold but other than that, I don't know much about it.
  3. They indicated some time in 2022. Not sure where I read that but I think it’s somewhere in the 30 pages of this thread.
  4. I just requested and received a password reset email. I changed my password via the link. My password is unique to this site so that if the hacker is able to view the password reset information, he/she will only be able to get here. I get spam emails in quantity too. My email address has been on the dark web (as told to me by Experian) for years now. I just check the spam folder every day for valid emails then delete the entire folder. I don't get hundreds daily but I do get about 50-60. Thanks for the heads-up on the hack.
  5. You may have a difficult time sourcing the Hasegawa Bf109F-2 or the untrop Bf109F-4 kits. Both kits have been extinct for many years now and while you can convert the 109F-4 Trop into a regular F-4 or F-2, it will take a little aftermarket to do it.
  6. There was this one that a quick google search turned up Hawk Bf109G . It’s labeled as a G but the markings are what I think should be an F-2, pilot Hans “Assi” Hans. It doesn’t quite match your description but that’s the only 1/72 Hawk 109 I could find.
  7. Nice! Your throttle linkage came out way better than mine did. On the upside though, it's very hard to see once all the details are in the engine compartment.
  8. Oh boy...that's a real case of bad news. I too am wishing them a safe and full recovery absent the "long-haulers" syndrome.
  9. Very nice! I'm loving the worn look of a combat veteran. Excellent weathering!
  10. Ya know, I honestly didn't even think to check the walkaround section. Thanks for the leads. This will help a lot!
  11. Hey, thanks for the source....Volume 1 is ok and while $40 is at the upper limit of what I wanted to spend, I'm sure it'll be worth it. IF it's actually in stock. Have you dealt with Hobbylinc before because I haven't? UPDATE: I tried to add the book to my cart and got the unfortunate message that the item has been discontinued and cannot be ordered. So much for being in stock.
  12. Yep, just as I feared, the Valiant Wings books are out of publication, and the Typhoon and Tempest Story book is way too expensive for my needs. The Typhoon and Tempest Aces of WWII is not what I'm looking for and the only one available is the Hawker Typhoon Portfolio which is the only book that I can get but not sure what's inside at $15 off Amazon. I guess I'll just have to build the kit (1/48) with what I have available.
  13. Looking for a decent reference (print) for the Hawker Typhoon. All I have is the Squadron/Signal “In Action”. I’m probably only ever going to build one or two models of the Tiffie (unless they release a good 1/32 plastic kit) so I’m not after an expensive, treatment but a reference sufficient to allow me to include a decent level of detail in places such as wheel wells, cockpit and some walk around photos. If anyone knows of such a reference, please post the title and author.
  14. Great news and glad to hear I'm mistaken. I was not aware that the AIM-9E was longer than the others so today is NOT a wasted day (I learned something). By the way, I love those ECM antenna's you built. Seeing these built is inspirational. Thanks for posting!
  15. Sorry, was just thinking out loud about those winders. it hit me like a bolt of lightning when I saw the length of the noses. I believe they're supposed to resemble AIM-9B's or C's, or quite possibly E's. They're definitely not AIM-9M's or P's and they certainly aren't AIM-9X's as the front fins are not shaped for these versions of the AIM-9.
