  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
  14. Yes,mine is ordered. Told my Christmas elf that she has successfully got my Christmas gift handled

    I see Silverwings is releasing their Yak-9 kit. Does anyone know how much the kit is going to cost? Kind of interested in one. The color schemes look very nice.
  16. Does anyone make white number decals for WW II aircraft?
  17. Of course- I just completed the ID vacuform kit of this aircraft. That's one way to guarantee that one will be done by another better entity!!!
  18. I am looking for 1/32 decals to do an EP-1(P-35). I thought I saw some Swedish decals somewhere.
  19. I have acquired the new ICM kit; which, by the way, is very nice in my opinion. A number of years ago I built the CA 1/48 kit in the scheme that has a red cowl and a red flash along the fuselage, silver rudder, white 4 and blue bar also on the rudder. Other than the scheme CA had illustrated for the kit, I have not seen a picture of this aircraft. Can anyone refer me to a picture involving this aircraft?
  20. Nice job. I am working on one and this gives an idea of where it can end up. Steve Oakson
  21. Thanks. I just looked at the site- not on their offerings.
  22. Are they still in business? Looking for a Dewoitine D-520 detail set.
  23. just fishing in the dark..... Anybody planning on doing any 1/32nd decals for 354th FG or the 15thAF groups. there a number of good possibilities in the 354h-both with and without the filet. How about Freddie Ohrs's Marie of the 52nd FG?
