    phantom reacted to Bill M. in Infinity Models SB2C-4 Helldiver update   
    I just received my kit, with all the upgrades. Came quickly from Hannant’s to me in the USA— at least I thought it was quick. 
    As to all this talk of “disappointment” and “bang for the buck”, the kit is and was exactly what I expected and paid for. This is likely my only option for an SB2C in 1/32 scale. Yes, it is not Tamiya quality, but I seriously doubt that Tamiya, or any of the major manufacturers will be doing another SB2C. Still, you should be able to build a very nice and credible model of the Helldiver. For a first injection molded effort, I think that Infinity has done a fine job. I look forward to their kit of the Val too— for all the same reasons.

    I got my notice from Hannants yesterday - just waiting to ship out... I did not get any of the upgrade sets - but total cost with shipping to Central Florida was only around $93... I'm really looking forward to seeing this beast in person...

    Glad to be back home, especially after the wife and I lost a beloved furry family member a couple hours before we were supposed to leave. It put a different spin on things, but sometimes things have to happen for a reason.
     
    Thanks for stopping in on me, and Ill see if I can put up a RFI post on the F.1 I completed right before I left.
     
    Cheers!

    I received the kit last week, and straight out of the box it will make a fantastic model, superb surface detail, clear parts like crystal, photo etch parts, fabric seat belts, and a great subject.

    Mine arrived today. Lots of parts, especially for the cockpit.  Fine surface detail, but limited run assembly with just small nubs to attach the tail planes instead of the conventional tab, no locator pins, and the wings butt up against the fuselage with just a spar for alignment.  Just a heads up, if you’re used to Tamiya kits, this one will take some work to get together as it’s kind of old school short run.
     
     
     
    Now just need to wait for the detail sets to come in.

    Got my hotel reservations at the Rio last year and planning to enjoy this trip. So disappointed though that a show featuring the Thunderbirds is too far for me to bring my collection    my wife and I plan to do some shows if things are open, otherwise it’ll just be a relaxing stay at the hotel...and i can bore her to death telling her about every model on the table and what I remember about their build log on LSP!! Hoping to meet more of you guys this trip

    Just wondering who might be going if it's still on.. I will be going,supposed to get the jab next week.
    But I imagine we'll still be masked there.which is not a bad idea,keeps the drool off the models.

    I’ll be in Vegas this year as well.  Hope we can all meet up.  I haven’t met any of you as yet but looking forward to it. My first COVID vaccine shot is scheduled this Sunday and I’ll be fully inoculated by the time the nats come around.  
     
    I’ll only be bringing one entry, the 1/16 Panther G I’m building right now in the non LSP forum.  I’ve got just under 150 days to get it done.  I think I can fit it as carry-on luggage on the flights.  
     
    Glad I won’t be competing against any of your LSP entries....I wouldn’t stand a chance.

    I booked my hotel room in Las Vegas but I have not booked the flights yet. All depends on the vaccination but if things continue to move they way they are in Ireland, it looks like I may be vaccinated after August. 
    I really miss the model shows. I used to attend a few every year.
