    Not necessarily. most of the detail in the area of the windows is recessed, which means any marring can be much easier to rectify. We are modelers. It's a challenge that can be overcome. EDIT: I just noticed on the box art that this kit is part of the "Lancaster Series". Okay...

    Zoukei Mura in 2018

    I guessed: 1. Fw190D-9; 2. Ju.88G-1 (get more usage from those BMW 801 radials in the 190A kits); 3. Lockheed P-38 Lightning

    There will always be that group. There is no pleasing that crowd and and no point in trying. This looks beautiful in those pictures.

    Trumpeter Liberators on facebook

    My crystal ball says: the "B" or "C" teams are working on it. It's going to be a hollowed out husk with no inner detail. Hope my crystal ball is "on the fritz".

    The so called "b" or "c" design team(s) must be working on it.

    Judging from the test shots of the sprues, this kit will be every bit as good as the offerings from Wingnuts and in some respects, the detailing is much better. Maybe Copper State Models will be that able competition needed in any industry to force all concerned to "up their game".

    Tamiya's release schedule next 5 years (suggestion)

    That 1/48 scale 109 G-6 kit already looks like a 1/32 scale kit, with the level of detail it has.

    Trumpeter P-40F

    I think it's supposed to represent a P-40 taking off. I believe that the landing gear in the P-40 had a staggered retraction with one gear going up into the wheel bay slightly ahead of the other.

    Well, there is box art; and isn't that some awful looking box art to be sure...

    I-153 color scheme question

    The aircraft you speak of is on the cover of the old squadron data file on the I-153

    I think so. It is the big problem for me. Grey plastic seems to be a more forgiving and less brittle plastic. I also understand that the ZM clear stuff is made hazy so that seeing through it is somewhat problematic. I don't know what effect adding "Future" to these parts clears them up. In either event the clear stuff is not favored by many (if not everyone) at least on this website.

    Maybe the clear parts are some kind of big deal in Japan. In either event, why not just make a kit with clear outer skin and then one without the stuff. That way they get both markets. For many modelers it is a deal killer to make a model with clear outer surfaces only.

    Agree. Not a fan of the clear styrene parts for outer surface of aircraft.
