  1. I'll echo Radub's recommendation. I visited the downtown museum decades ago (and the intriguing Garber storage facility). This year I went to both. The Udvar Hazy has many more aircraft on display. While the original has many iconic and historic a/c, it's a bit cramped and some rooms are very dark. If you are doing photography, no tripods or mono-pods are allowed in either museum. https://www.airhistory.net/photo/99522/153369
  2. Just read my last e-mail of the day announcing a 10th anniversary sale at Wing Nut Wings, so head's up! https://shop.wingnutwings.com/
  3. That's an interesting program if you're familiar with commercial flying. You should be able to watch the original training video here: Children of the Magenta Line
  4. There has been a review posted on this kit. It's in Portuguese, but there is a translate button at the top right of the page. Even though it looks a bit rough, I am interested to see if anyone has been successful ordering (and getting) the kit. https://www.spruemaster.com/2019/02/review-1-32-a-29b-super-tucano-cacciari-models/
  5. The IPMS Seattle Spring Show is the the same location again this year. Always a great show. IPMS Seattle 2019 Spring Show
  6. Trumpeter did a few 1/48 scale kits before the Mig-15/Mig-17/Mig-17PF/JJ-5 releases in1/32. The Mig-15 appears to be a copy if the 1/48 Tamiya kit. These models brought me to the original LargescalePlanes. I was searching for opinions on the new models and there weren't any .... no one had heard of them.
  7. Could you please enter me as a recipient and I would like to donate 2 books as separate prizes. Gloster Meteor - Macdonald Aircraft Monograph North American X-15 Owner's Workshop Manual Thanks to all who makes this a great place to visit
  8. Head's up after the hubbub when Photobucket changed their free account. Flickr is planning a (less abrupt) change with theirs. Still generous, but a 1,000 photo limit is coming next year. Full announcement here: http://blog.flickr.net/en/2018/11/01/changing-flickr-free-accounts-1000-photos/
  9. You're bringing back memories of book stores on Tottenham Court Road. I never missed a chance to pick up a book or three. It seems to be a policy with some publishers to clear out a title are a year or two. Rare is a book that gets multiple printings. Remaindered books
  10. This question is asked periodically. It's a one man operation and perseverance is an asset. It takes less patience than ordering 1/72 scale items from jbot decals, though; (also worth the wait). https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/hyperscale/flightdecs-and-joe-t246255.html
  11. You can see some info one their re-vamped website. BTW They are only selling to dealers only now. http://www.pacmodels.com/about.htm
  12. My Akihabara visits were done one afternoon at a time and I never made it to the Yodobashi roof; but you made me look. https://www.google.ca/maps/@35.6992998,139.7744583,789m/data=!3m1!1e3 The do have double decker driving ranges to compliment the golf store and some batting cages to boot. I have stopped being jealous (mostly) and now worry how you are going to carry everything all back.
  13. Hi James, Check out this guide as a starting point. http://tokyo-hobby-shops.geraet040.net/ My personal experience is out of date as I haven't been there for over 7 years If you have limited time, I'd concentrate on the Akihabara area and don't forget Yodobashi Camera on the other side of the train station. They have a concentrated newer kits selection (at a small discount) and a modeling tool area to boot. You will have a great time Gary you may also want to try the gyoza here: https://www.ohsho.co.jp/english/
  14. Hang in there. Mine arrived today; posted November 26th.
  15. I assumed Revell was re-releasing their old Mirage kit in the new year. Not so; it will be the Italeri molding released under co-operation. Now I'm looking forward to a (hopefully) more affordable big Mirage along with the Super Hornet. http://www.ipmsdeutschland.de/FirstLook/Hersteller_News/Revell_News_2018.html
