  1. Looks very nice. This is such neat kit. Built one some time ago.
  2. In all honesty, I don't mind the cost. and work to get the old bird built. Many of us have been waiting- how many decades -for a new issue by someone- but that ain't happening. Besides the cost would probably be 200-300 dollars in cost. I'll do it this way. Thanks Model Monkey.
  3. Hey folks, if you look at the Vendors site near the bottom of the site, Model Monkey has just released a front cockpit 3D print set. I am going to be ordering it soon. Also, weren't there two different types of the dihedral tailplanes- for the VI and X??
  4. I just started on an old Lodela kit. Trying to get an interior going on this is daunting. Just have a floor and spars in place, but I will HAPPILY wait on one of your interiors. PLEASE do the observers area also. The Beau in this scale has been sadly underserved. Still debating between a night fighter or TF X.
  5. Well done. Wings had to be difficult to get correct.
  6. Thanks for the correction- I kind didn't use all my fingers too count all the parts Just perused the sprues too quickly. Ok I hope we are all straight on this everyone-my bad
  7. Paul, I haven't put my 2 cents in until now. I know things have been difficult to deal with. I just want to say thank you for all your efforts in the past. I hope the future will be sunny. After personally talking to you over some years, you were immeasurable help to me. Good luck on the future. My Skyray and Wyvern thank you.
  8. Simply awestruck I thought this would be a good kit from them, but I was absolutely impressed after opening the box yesterday. I think I will dismantle the vacuform kit I built to use the interior in it to make an inflight bird from the clear parts included. I have been proud of the build I did on the ID kit, but the ZM kit supercedes all my efforts on it. There are 4 engines in the kit, with nacelles- so that wont present a problem coming up with extras. If someone does some landing gear, making one setting on tires could potentially be done from the extra parts. I would have liked a few more decal options, but maybe someone will work on that. My initial impression of this kit is very positive. I am sure you will need to be very careful about test fitting all the sub assemblies before the final assembly of parts. I don't anticipate problems, but there are A LOT of parts to go together. THANK YOU, Zoukei-Mura. This has been on my wish list since I was a kid and a neighbor had one of the old WW II black ID models.
  9. Did the Beaufighter use the same tires and wheels as the Mosquito? Building a Revell Beaufighter and noticed on some pictures, that later Beaufighters appeared to have similar-if not the same- wheels as Mosquitos. Seeking verification either yes or no.
  10. Really looking forward to more of this build. The instruction booklet that is online looks very complex. I have one on order and want to do this kit up right.
  11. Have one on order!! Built the vacuform many moons ago, and I am really looking forward to this kit to see how bad I did. This aircraft has such great lines. May not have been the best but one of the most attractive IMHO.
  12. I was wondering if there is any news at all about the Special Hobby kit? I haven't seen anything on this for some time. Just curious
  13. Paul,so glad to hear your wife, the pets, and you are safe. Godspeed. Steve Oakson
