  1. I do, and yes it is off as stated. and the split turrets will be alot harder to fix than even the Minicraft ones were. very thick with connect pin tunnels IN the clear area as well.
  2. I didnt say there wasnt an issue with it, but to make the statement that its the most distinctive part of the plane is just obviously being over dramatic ..noone hears 'B24" and instantly thinks of its wing roots.
  3. having just read through this entire thread..I cant believe someone actually said the wing root is the most distinctive part of this plane. Thats like checking out a girl and commenting on her elbows. The B24 ,with its big fat nose ,twin tails and long wings has been my favorite WWII bomber , and I didnt notice the wing root until pointed out... but the first thing I did look for were the turrets construction (built enough Minicraft kits) ,and to me they failed on this kit. I doubt any AM companies except perhaps in vac form will tackle the clear parts , and so far ,those have sucked when it comes to turrets and complex canopies. They just never fit right (because theyre always formed 'over' the original part)
  4. The US distributor (MMD) imposed a strict MAP pricing of the MSRP on this kit. Noone is allowed to sell below it ..else they will not be able to buy from them anymore.
  5. I already cant figure out where id put the 1/72 model if I built it...much less space for this beast,...but I will have to say..I paid $1200 for the 42" Rebel Blockade runner, and this B36 looks to be of better quality than the BR was...id say its a great price for a limited run kit . Though I thought I read its made of fiber glass ,not resin.
  6. Id go Acad too, Ive built that one and enjoyed it without much fuss, if any at all.
  7. thanks Kev for that .. I wonder, watching the Flory video, he mentions that AK had sent out a bad batch of some of their products, and I think he was refering to this stuff..is it possible you received the bad batch since you got them when they first came out? also, just to mention, I was going to buy some now ,and try them out, which I ran across this ebay listing (hope its ok to link) but they were so cheap I couldnt resist..$10 for 5 of them! http://www.ebay.com/itm/AK-Interactive-Xtreme-Metal-5-Brand-New-Bottles-/182682116256?hash=item2a88b3e0a0:g:7FEAAOSwWxNYqcTL
  8. I did have a reaction one time ,I like to use the Alclad dull coat ,cause it gives that perfect dull look without having to use the rattle can MM dull. I dont remember what it was I applied it over, but it made it sticky.
  9. Ive been using Alclad, but since its not good to apply laquer over enamel..(or is it vice versa) then I saw these and they did appear to be more durable. I appreciate your comment on them , and with your results, think I'll give em a try
  10. lol, are you kidding? tried it and it pushed my patience and temper...and besides... no where was my question about other techniques anyway.
  11. that is a gorgeous photo! My wife mentioned just a few nights ago she'd like to be able and take some photos of the stars... any recommendations on how to do it? she does have a good Nikon , cant remember the model at the moment, but has all the manual settings
  12. Just finished watching the Flory models review of the AK Interactive Xtreme metals paint , and it looks very promising. Ive been using the Alclad II paints myself, but Im wondering if anyones used both and could say which you like better? should I invest in getting the AK paints?
  13. they scratched the kit release and decided just to offer the flowers in 1/32 scale...
  14. I call it evilbay because of the companies 'buyer protection' policies which have become a well known source for thieves to take advantage of. Its getting to easy for buyers to make false claims in order to get the items for free...ripping of the honest sellers...yup..there were some bad sellers for a number of years, now its flipped ,and theres just too many scamming buyers, cause they know the buyer will win the case and get it for free!
