    Hobby Boss 1/32 B-24J - Initial Observations

    Well, I have no interest in the kit with no intention of buying (mostly do to the size and subject matter), but I do believe the turret issues are a significant issue to this release. Mark Proulx

    Yes...I find the forum here to be quite slow and has been for some time. No other forum I am on is consistantly as sluggish this one... Mark Proulx

    1/24th Scale

    So, considering the Telford announcement of a 1/24th scale Hellcat... For years, large scale modelers had to languish through a few poorly researched kits and limited selections overall in 1/32nd scale. I think we can all agree that eventually we observed a significant increase in popularity of 32nd scale models. So, the question is, is 1/24th scale the new 1/32nd scale? Are we going to see an increase of new releases in 1/24th scale? Discuss... Mark Proulx

    361st FG P-51D Colour Confirmation!!

    I agree with Radu. This proves nothing. Just because it was written on a set of drawings from the 80's, doesn't make it fact. Mark Proulx

    HKM Lancaster Dambusters conversion kit

    Though I am not a player in either kit, I would worry that if the price of the conversion added to the cost of the HK kit comes near to the WNW release, then many will likely opt for the later. Add to this the possibility of two separate shipping charges. However, the "stressed skin" effect from WNW will make the two kits appear quite different. If that attempt not popular with the builder, then a dambuster conversion for the HK kit would be welcomed, I believe. HTH Mark Proulx

    Aires Skyhawk Resin Detail Set

    Thanks for your input guys.... Mark Proulx
  10. I am well aware of "issues" that can arise using Aires detail sets. Has anyone tried the Aires Cockpit/Wheel Well set in 32nd scale for the A-4F? If so, any major issues in their application? I would like to know before shelling out hard earned cash for something that is more of a PITA than its worth... Mark Proulx

    The turret seam issue plagued the 48th scale Monogram B-24 J too. Koster subsequently released vacuform replacements. Mark Proulx

    As always with the B-24 J, the book Consolidated Mess really is the bible on the type. It was a real education for me to read about the numerous turret/window/nose configurations that the "J" went through. It is one of the issues that will become apparent when aftermarket decal companies consider a release (if concerned about accuracy) for any B-24 J/H kit. Mark Proulx

    Lancaster purchase

    I would love to have a 1/32nd scale Lancaster, particularly a Dambuster. However, it is too large a kit and I can't justify the price to my wife, or myself.... Same goes for the B-17 and B-24. Mark Proulx
