  1. Its maybe sacrilegious to admit and it won't happen, and people will get red in the face for me even mentioning it, but I'd love to see some armor in 32. Decent kits too, not rubberband tracked snap-togethers. If Tamiya—or anyone else for that fact—did this I'd buy whatever they'd be willing to press out. At the least, I'd like to see the Hind-D in 32. Actually any of the giant or killer choppers for that fact.
  2. Wow, thanks for quick reply and the photos. I can hardly believe those engines on the Blériot Bl-75 are even real. Maybe it's the props, but they look like some kind of placeholder, but on the other hand, given that most engines (in that era) looked like an industrial appliance, they're still really cool.
  3. I was wondering if anyone could identify the two large planes at the bottom of this image? Just in case the above image link is borked, here it is on Pinterest :: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/11610911514405603/ Thanks much.
  4. Just added a new item to the list on page 1; Master Details new nose defroster assembly.
  5. Yuppers! Cycling is like a cocaine habit, just a lot more expensive. My skinny bike is a mid-range frame and though $tupid expensive still nowhere near the price for some of the bikes that show up at local group rides. Anyhow, my stash and guilt is growing at an unreasonable rate but I'm still stoked a Gotha landed in my collection. Especially before the remaining Earth's inventory retreats into that heart-wrenching area of the Amazon titled, "Available from these sellers".
  6. Just added Master Details new Control Columns to the item list on the first page (response #13) of this thread.
  7. Oh wow, so since this is the case there appears to be a choice for builders of the HKM B-17G kits to keep them 'as-is' out of the box. I've been debating on whether or not to stagger these waist gunners. Thanks!
  8. I've always heard and seen the waist gunner positions on the B-17 being staggered, but this picture appears to show otherwise :: http://media.defense...F-1234S-003.JPG Here's the article where the photo resides. It's 10th pic in the gallery :: http://www.nationalm...g-fortress.aspx Understandably there are ton of variants but could this pic be from a different kind of bomber altogether? The belly gunner makes me believe it's still a 17 but I'm no expert. Were there any other bombers that had a belly turret like this? If it is a 17, why aren't waist gunners staggered? ~Chaz
  9. I'm not trying to be rude or funny, but Milk run? Blocks?? I imagine blocks would be a reference to a series of planes built in a certain time period, so they would share common traits ... is that right? Milk run is something I've never heard of. So please, do tell!
  10. Looking great. Consider this a polite bump ~Chaz
  11. Thanks Thierry. Your input is well-received since I found an variety of different type of scrapers and was wondering which would work best. On a similar vein I ran across these seam scrapers as well. Given that they can second as a radius gauge, they will probably end up on my workbench :: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Military-model-s-optimal-velocity-U-Star-special-clamping-wire-scraper-UA-0019/32580052871.html?spm=2114.01010208.3.323.Dqun1F&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_2,searchweb201603_1&btsid=1443e61d-3eac-4105-8c29-b0de29dc3fd8 https://www.aliexpress.com/item/U-Star-up-to-model-special-clamping-wire-scraper-UA-0020/32580923913.html?spm=2114.01010208.3.152.Dqun1F&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_2,searchweb201603_1&btsid=1443e61d-3eac-4105-8c29-b0de29dc3fd8 Here's a review of these by Flory Models :: ~Chaz
  12. Would the scraper heads on these be curved and/or perpendicular to the handle, so they're drawn like a rake to remove material?
  13. Interesting, especially since I would never have noticed. Would you mind sharing what's wrong with them?
  14. Master Details just sent me an email with some new 1:32 scale .50 cal ammo chutes. Only $5.95 USD, so I'll probably pick them up to check them out :: http://masterdetails.com/web-store/pilots-figures-details/kit-number/50-caliber-ammo-chutes-detail?utm_source=Master+Details+Newsletter&utm_campaign=ff8537456f-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2016_10_27&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_0014908117-ff8537456f-161340570
  15. Holy Bombers Batman! That's amazing. Nice work Scott, but I have to hate you—just a little—for raising the bar so friggin' high
  16. NP, but the credit actually belongs to Thierry. Without his initial input I would've never found links for all these gems. ~Chaz
  17. Thank you mates! Y'all have given me much to think about. BTW I don't plan on doing any contests so I'll be good for über-fragile-detailing. I took Thierry's list, with a few other gleaned items and attached links and respective MSRP (localized) as a benchmark for pricing. No doubt some deals are to be had, but at least a comparison to the original prices can be done. I didn't find any Oxygen Hoses from MDC (at least not specifically for 1:32 scale) so the info there is missing. Anyway, hopefully this helps anyone else wanting to find these parts. +++++ The list has been moved to the opening entry of this thread, so ya need to back it up +++++
  18. Thanks Kevin. My searches were only netting TV's, washing machines and various other consumer products
  19. Just wondering what this LG Set is? I looked online but 'LG' is a popular Korean megacorp so ...
  20. Thanks for the heads up. My head is still spinning but you're helping slow it down by quite a bit. Admittedly I purchased two G's in case I totally borked the first attempt. If I get through the first without destroying it, then maybe the second will become a torn down, gutted version so that all these details can be displayed properly. Personally speaking it's easy for me to want something in overkill-mode, it's another to actually build it. History will be my judge. Oh, I read somewhere that the nose-cone on the G kit was incorrect ... is there a correction kit for this if that's the case? Many thanks.
  21. Many, many thanks Thierry! I wasn't aware some of these even existed. BTW, I also ran across some engine kits from Brassin and Big Sin. Not sure how much overlap they might have or which is better, but the prices of all these extras are making me think I should consider a cheaper hobby, like a cocaine habit. Seriously though, fantastic insight. Thanks again.
  22. I recently purchased a few kits; the HKM B-17G being my most eagerly anticipated build. Planning has unearthed quite a few detailing kits, so I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on the [detail] kits they've used for this particular kit. Is there a lot of cross-over with the different manufacturers? In particular are Eduard Big Ed 3332 & Mk1's listed on Amazon? Any other suggestions are welcome.
