  1. Are you looking for the pic for reference, or to validate your choice to show the plane in a situation that is, at the least, very rare? I'm sure you can find plenty of pics of one undergoing maintenance, and you seem certain you have seen them being worked on while armed, so whats the need for the pics?
  2. Just wanted to comment on the box art. Very nice. Looks like the green-gray of the zero is a bit dark,but still impressive.
  3. Should be easy enough to make some intakes using thin rolled plastic sheet. Considering I was able to make very convincing intakes in a Revell 1/32 F-15 using this method, the Mirage should be easy peazy
  4. I have an item sitting at the PO right now that got there yesterday , and won't be delivered here until tomorrow...maybe. The tracking shows that it arrived at the PO yesterday, very early AM, somehow wasn't scanned until today, was "transferred" to the PO 9 hours after it was scanned...by the PO, and is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow. Oh well, its not anything important, just damned frustrating. About as frustrating as tracking a UPS package as it goes right through the town where I live, to the distribution center 2 states over (Oregon), then one state up (Washington), then back across Washington to (I guess) the local distribution place, then into Idaho, where its delivered to the town it passed through 3-4 days prior...
  5. As long as it not UPS Surepost. Once UPS drops it at the PO, it sits...and sits... almost like they are competitors or something! Its always fun reading about the suspense and expectation of getting the new, must have kit first, realizing that it will more than likely just be added to the pile!
  6. Just my 2 cents, but a large, single color, glider looking aircraft that carried no weapons and was only used by the US doesn't strike me as a real popular subject. Yes the SR-71 fits the same bill in many ways, but its absolutely bad a$$ and looks like a space ship. Its the same reason in many respects that German armor and figures are more popular than allies. They are more colorful, have many more interesting schemes, and seem more menacing. The U2 seems anything but menacing. The SR-71 on the other hand...
  7. Just the silly things I do sometimes. Its very likely that I won't even put in a claim with Paypal. I'll put a $20 in the bell ringers pot the next time I go to the store as recompense...
  8. I actually went ahead and ordered one from this link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kitty-Hawk-KH32020-Mirage-2000C-Model-Kits-New/153749886832?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 I figured its $19 bucks and I have been very successful getting refunds from Paypal, so it's a bit of entertainment more than anything. I spent more than that at the local KFC the other day, and at least this one isn't likely to cause me the intestinal distress THAT $20 investment got me... Amazingly, they have actually sent me something (according to the tracking) so I can't wait to see what actually arrives. My bet is empty box...
  9. No love for the Mig-19? Always thought it was one of their better efforts
  10. They went to a pay to play subscription to do direct linking/sharing on other sites. On their site they have different prices for different storage levels, at a monthly fee. If you don't pay, your images get watermarked and their resolution lowered to near uselessness. I thought someone had come up with a work around, maybe they caught on or it was only for images that had already been uploaded prior to their subscription service kicking in. Anyhow, IMGUR is much better. https://support.photobucket.com/hc/en-us/articles/360022822393-New-Hosting-Limits?hotlinkfix=1569724114197
  11. The pictures on the e-bay auction show it compared to the kit engine and it looks about the same size, so it appears to be scaled correctly. The 1/28th scaled engine wouldn't be close.
  12. I keep hearing (as always) "if and when Tamiya" whenever it comes to any kit wish list. Has no one read some of the blogs from Tamiya and his/their view of the plastic model market in general? Basically he stated that they realize that most modelers are 50 years old or older, the market in most of the world for plastic models (that aren't RC 4 wheel cars, etc) is shrinking and in many cases, its not cost effective and they are no able to recoup investment.

  13. https://forum.ww1aircraftmodels.com/index.php?topic=8274.0 I think its a good start if you want to go to town. I know the Revell 1/28th kit is very basic,even for a WWI aircraft. I'm thinking of getting one myself. But if you are looking for a bigger WnW kits, its not that.
  14. Hmm, for all the hubbub, I'm wondering if (when its available) you put one of these down next to a well built Encore Dr.I, if anyone would be able to tell one from the other. It should be...interesting!
