  1. I would concur, but the KW's sets are a fair bit cheaper than either Quinta or Red Fox. For my money, I think the Kits World are a great improvement over most kits' cockpits, but some will prefer the greater detail of the more expensive items. Chris.
  2. Sounds like a supremely worthwhile time to me.... Enjoy it. Chris.
  3. What's the difference between a happy, well-fulfilled modeller and a unicorn? There's isn't one.... 'cos neither creature actually exists. Chris.
  4. Why did Tamiya start producing 1/35th kits? Was it just to follow a different path than all the American and European manufacturers? Or was it to make their products more appealing to the Japanese consumer? Chris.
  5. I've been wondering how noticeable the size difference between the 1/32nd and 1/35th versions will be? Would you only really notice if you have them alongside each other? Or really obvious? Chris.
  6. Thanks for the clarification, Thierry. Chris.
  7. On the subject of back-up camera batteries, a Chinese company called DTSE make very good (but cheap) batteries. I am basing this on the Sony HDV video-camera batteries of theirs I've bought recently. About 80% of the (very expensive) Sony original's capacity / running-time and about a third of the price. What's not to like? Chris.
  8. Hi, raphaelMD. I'm not too sure what you're telling us in your original post. Are you saying that you have received the wrong clear parts in your kit? Or are the clear parts actually missing from the box? Cheers. Chris.
  9. I've seen some Squad. Sig. Walk Arounds going for silly money on E-Bay. They're good books, but they really ain't $150 of good... Other users mileage may differ. Cheers. Chris.
  10. As you might be aware, Hobbyboss have produced a 1/16th Tiger 1. A lot of people have slagged it off, but - personally - I think it's a cracking kit (with ENORMOUS upgrade potential). For the price, it's a genuine bargain. Cheers. Chris.
  11. Hi, Out2gtcha. Thanks for the reply. I have been told that one regular at my LMS has built it and said it has no major fit issues. From examining in the box, it looks like ICM have done a great job. At last, I can sell my two Revell versions off. I'm looking forward to some very cool aftermarket decals coming out ("Squatter Swatter" would be a very popular one, I'm sure). Cheers. Chris.
  12. Looking for any remarks or potential naughtiness to be found in the kit... I've read that the two part rotor-blades are a bit thicker than reality would dictate. Not the end of the world, I'm sure. Thanks. Chris.
  13. I believe that there was a binding-issue with the first print-run of the A400 book and HMH ordered a full reprint. How long will that take? I have no idea, unfortunately... Chris.
  14. Folks need to be aware that there will be no Kitswap this year. I'm sure that there will be a number of people turning up with a car-full of kits and then getting pretty angry that they will be unable to sell them. Having said all that, they will not find the Kitswap list on the IPMS website, so that should tell them what's going on. Chris.
  15. The very best of luck to you, Bert. I hope you make a speedy and complete recovery. Chris.
