  1. Thanks to all. I don't find the Squadron thing that mystifying as we all tend to be the "hardcore" modelers who look around and know more details. Squadron caters to the ones less knowing and more into quick purchases, etc. which make up the majority of the modelers. (People that build a kit when they feel like it or are interested) And yes- its stupid to sell one but I assume it was done due to cost attracting people Dave
  2. Is it this one? https://www.squadron.com/Martin-Baker-Mk-H-7-Ejection-Seat-p/tdp32902.htm I did notice when they have multiples, they say "seats" and single "seat". They are nice but pricey as people said Then again, what kits and things aren't anymore Dave Dave
  3. Sprue Brothers have them: https://store.spruebrothers.com/product_p/aca12118-os.htm Not cheap but they do list as in stock Lucky Model appears to OOS Dave
  4. Completely correct. In my case, could care less about accuracy so bring it on. Looks like the plane so I am good. Got over my AMS years ago Dave
  5. That's the way all lawsuits work. Sue the company, one person gets rich and the company recoups the money from their customers/employees. Every time. Dave
  6. One comment about prethinned paints. I wholeheartedly agree they are easy but one reason it is done is it is more profitable. The cheapest part of a paint is the thinner so by pre-thinning, they are adding the cheapest ingredient (plus it is easier to use). One of the largest paint companies I used to work for had a standard rule. Once the paint was done being checked for quality, thin it to just above the bottom of specification - it increases the amount you can sell by adding water or solvent Dave
  7. So, is this stuff even safe considering there is no info as to what's in it Dave
  8. Or 15 minutes of sanding. Pass on the Revell kit. Trumpeter is just fine Dave
  9. Amen to anything Tom Cleaver related. No respect for him at all Dave
  10. Two reasons. First, while this group of people worldwide is devout 1/32 fans, many don't do them because they are either simply too large to display or too expensive to buy. Second, when Academy made their lovely 1/32 F-18, the tooling costs alone exceeded $1MM and with a limited market and reissues, that is a lot of money to get back especially with resellers, etc. Dave
  11. Or a B-26. Lancaster is cool but too much dollars for minimal interest (to me) Dave
  12. That looks like a lot of fun and you can paint it up any way you want Nice Dave
  13. I'll stick with the Trumpeter. Better kit to me as far as fit. Rivets...simply don't care Dave
