  1. I really like the full top and full bottom approach to the Lancaster fuselage. With just the actual sidewall missing. I could build my Lanc like that and be happy. As for the Dr. 1, I always said they would, now I just have to wait a little longer.
  2. I haven’t dealt with the Aires pit myself, but you don’t often read the words Aires and better fit in the same sentence.
  3. This is kit is often overlooked or forgotten about, however it is truly an outstanding model
  4. Should your other offer for help not come through, I have what you need.
  5. I try to stay out of these types of threads, but. Basically every car company makes SUV’s, do we really need another one? Clearly the market answer is yes we do and every company wants their own piece of the pie. Why? Because they are what is selling these days, they weren’t 40 years ago, and may not be 40 years from now. At this moment they are the big sellers. Notice they all come in same colours too, from brand to brand you can get a silver SUV from almost every manufacturer. Not so with minivans anymore, only a handful still making them, who knows how well they sell. But I can sure make an educated estimate of the ratio of SUV’s to minivans I see rolling around the streets near me. Let’s see Jaguar, Ferrari, or even Ford’s reply to a request for a minivan in my favourite shade of purple. I’d also like it in stock at least three local dealerships, and I ‘need’ it for less $20000 with 0% financing. Modellers seem to think the industry is a collective where we make kits that don’t compete against each other. If I was starting a modelling company today, I’d choose a F-14, Me-109, P-51, or F-16 as my first release. Otherwise there won’t be a second release. There is a very good reason why we are not up to our knees in Judy’s, Val’s, and P-36’s, because if anyone did tool one the warehouse people would be buried in unsold kits, and the manufacturer up to their eyeballs in debt.
  6. Wheels and Wings had the Eduard boxing of the P-40N. Saw it there yesterday. Never looked at the price.
  7. Interesting to see what kits are discounted, and which ones are not. Also the depth of discounts on some of these kits is a pretty good indicator of what is selling well, and what the slow movers are. I noticed there was $10 off the camel but $100 of the felixstowe.
  8. Ah the internet, the place where someone will argue for days about why his ‘86 Hyundai is twice the car that your 2019 Lexus ever could be.
  9. I seem to recall dear Edgar, God rest his soul, stating that the Mk. Vb and Vc landing gear also had a rake angle difference of 5 degrees. Can’t remember which one was which or why it was even different.
  10. Try wheels and wings in Toronto. I don’t know if they have any, but it is the last place I remember seeing them.
  11. A back yard DYI restoration of a kittyhawk to flight condition from scraps.. 5 minute video. https://www.cbc.ca/cbcdocspov/features/mechanic-genius-restores-a-vintage-kittyhawk-plane-in-his-backyard
  12. Nope, not everyone produces outstanding decal guides and research notes like.... What’s that company called again? Fundekals.
  13. I have the above referenced decals, and I know very little about F-15’s. What year or years do these decals depict? The paint is mod C, and they are pre MSIP. But what approximate calendar years should these be depicting? Here is the link, http://www.dacoproducts.com/KAst01.php. These are for my Tamiya 1:32 F-15C. Thanks
