    My main interest is in Post 1945 but I build most eras and types. Fully converted to 1/32 and 1/24 scales in aircraft and 1/16 for armour.
    I also enjoy ship models in 1/200 but boy that's really big stuff!! I also build anything large in it's scale!

  1. Without casting any disrespect to fellow builders I would define these limited kits as being ideal for modellers rather than kit builders. I know several keen kit builders who have no desire to 'model' something that requires a little extra work. Therefore, when asked I always say to them 'this is not the kit for you' or 'yes I think this kit will be ideal for your interests'. I would sooner do that than see them abandon their kits due to frustration. Perhaps we should tailor reviews in future with that in mind. Iain crafted his review perfectly in my opinion for this type of kit. Great review.
  2. Great review and I hope that they follow up with a nice two seater at some point!
  3. 1/18 scale kits can do with some more help as well. Airscales Fw190 set is superb! I hope the 1/24 sets also continue as well as the scale is often ignored by many AM businesses. Well done Airscale!!
  4. Maybe if you planted a listening device in their offices we could find out?
  5. Hope it's a 1/16 softskin like a 6x6 or something like that if it's non aviation. If not anything in 1/32 is always appreciated here!
  6. Why have all European Navy subjects been avoided when it comes to mainstream IM kits in the larger scales? Royal Navy aircraft in particular need some attention here. I've been waiting for a Seahawk for years and years in 1/32 scale. A Scimitar would be most welcome indeed!! Please everyone write to Infinity Models to hasten up their Westland Wyvern as I really want this one too!!!!
  7. I would like to support everyone else here with their recommendations You can buy with confidence!
  8. Perhaps it's time for Academy to consider producing this version in it's entirety rather than others doing half a job modifying it. Probably quite a decent market for it out there. I do wish this company would produce more 1/32 scale jets. Their Hornet is stellar and I have plenty in the stash!! One day maybe?
  9. A Halo would indeed be quite a super size model! I wonder if ICM would be interested in doing it now?
  10. Back in the day when a couple of bombs dropped on some restless tribesmen was the answer to the problem! I wonder if we've moved on that much from that position even now?
  11. I thought he was just doing 3D printed stuff now? I must say it's top quality and I hope he continues doing that into the future.
  12. The only thing I would add to the other very good comments is that we all enjoy building the models and having that experience. After the completions maybe we just store them away after displaying them for a while before moving on to the next one anyway. Some people advertise them on e-bay. I guess you make the call and move on if you do give them away. Get some good pictures first though!
  13. You can't go wrong with the Videoaviation figures. I have a bunch of them and the quality and price is good too! Check them out, it's worth it.
  14. Non U.S Navy aircraft of any description are the poor relations in our scale and it is indeed a mystery why they don't do them? I think a 1/32 scale Hawker Seahawk would sell well....... but then, what do I know?
