  1. A few will sit on the shelf in the cupboard alongside my two HPH La-7s and the just ordered Lemkits La-9
  2. A set up to the standard of the Tamiya kit would be very welcome.
  3. A long project for sure, it has been six years already. I hope were don't have to wait too much longer. Keep up the good work.
  4. Not too sure about the butt joints for wings and tailplanes, I think I would be more comfortable adding a decent spar to help keep things in place and aligned. But I love it anyway.
  5. A big model which will keep you occupied big time, while she is out buying shoes.
  6. I think I see the problem here...........
  7. it seems Lucky Model and Hobbylink Japan are not stocking, so eBay Japan might be the go-to Greg
  8. TBH Darren and Jennings, I am not overly fussed that windows might be in the wrong place, or turrets are frosted and unusable maybe due to a join line. I will happily cut new windows etc. But if I was doing Dragon and His Tail I would not just plonk them onto the kit if it is not correct in that area. Of course I could, and many will, but I think many of us here are trying to achieve a somewhat higher standard. I am somewhat bemused that many here fret about Me 109 spinners and blades being a tad off and spend $20 on replacements, but seem not concerned that the B-24 sort of has a B-17 wing on it. If that is not a serious mistake then I don't know what is. Maybe it is fixable, maybe not. But for many that issue seems to have become "nothing to see here, move along"
  9. I expect this will be a long thread.......
  10. I'll stick with the Hasegawa and convert when I need an F.
  11. Another bet I lose with myself, I was thinking a Yak 9 would be on the 2019 listing from ICM. Now to build the Silver Wings Gladiator before the ICM kit hits the shelves.
  12. Anxiously waiting for some retailers to start listing it so I can decide where to buy, either locally or overseas. A wonderful release for sure.
  13. Probably way easier to do the oil canning using the method as here, where the solid inners are covered in etched metal skinning, rather than trying it in CAD. I read that doing so for the Lancaster totally maxed out HKM's computer capacity. Really so glad that this will now be IM, as resin is way to $$$y, and I have my fear that it will not be too happy with global warming. 'Tis already about 40degrees C here.
  14. At the very least, they could have just copied the Hasegawa (or even Academy) 1/72 scale kits and had a better result. As I stated before, the 1/32 Liberator does not figure in my purchase plans anymore. Life is too short to attempt a kit where the most salient feature is totally cocked up.
