    My main interest is in Post 1945 but I build most eras and types. Used to build 1/48 but now fully converted to 1/32 and 1/24 scales in aircraft and 1/35 and 1/16+ for armour.
    I also enjoy ship models in 1/350 scale, 1/200 is great but boy that's really big stuff!!

  1. Looks fantastic Dave! Well done to get it in such a prominent position which is so well deserved! I look forward to seeing it when I visit this year.
  2. I wonder how sales of the other 1/32 WWII fighters in their range are selling for Tamiya? If the numbers aren't that good from their expectations then they'll simply rely on re-issues of the others for their profits in the future. Rumours are that they're giving up on 1/32 scale aircraft? What chances of new aircraft stuff coming at all? No 1/32 jets from them for years now, and how much would they be in comparison with others? Not everyone can afford the higher prices of these super kits. Perhaps the super detailed large aircraft kits that cost so much to tool are at an end from them? Incidentally, I would love to know the sales figures of the 1/32 scale Mosquito since it came onto the market! Happy days anyway, we've never had it so good regardless!!!
  3. I must say the model looks stunning to me! I've bought some more figures to go with it too, can't wait for it's release now. Well done KH and team!
  4. Oh shame! I'll have to put it back on my wishlist again. Never mind there's always hope I guess!
  5. Just seen on their news announcements! Now hoping for the -25 to go with it. Happy days!! http://www.trumpeter-china.com/index.php?g=home&m=article&a=show&id=151&l=en
  6. I think Kittyhawk deliver some of the most colourful markings from any of the manufacturers. I didn't like the idea of the 'narrow joined' decals in the F-86D kits though, they just didn't work! The newer ones are much better by far. I agree, some really 'blingy' jets would be great!
  7. FWIW I'm still waiting for their F5-F to arrive in the U.K let alone the Mirage 2000!! When they both eventually appear someone can have my money for them. Fortunately I still have over three hundred kits to choose from until then!!!!
  8. Perhaps the question might be what 'large' model will HB produce next? HB has broken any perceived size barriers that I thought they might have in 1/32 scale, although the P-61 is certainly no tiddler! The Liberator like Revell's He111 has definitely made a statement in my book, dare we look forward to other four engine projects in the future? I have to say a Halifax in 1/32 scale in both major marks would certainly 'float my boat' plus some Russian aircraft too!
  9. Great news and not before time! I can see some coming into my stash at some point.
  10. When I spoke to Neil of HK Models at Telford last year he seemed pretty upbeat that the Phantom would be released in 2019. Let's be patient and wait for the update to arrive. I'm sure the wait will be well worth it in the end!
  11. In the circle of my modelling friends, we are continually updating, or as we call it, re-imagining, some of our kits! It's great fun and truly amazing the difference in appearances of those models over the years of owning them. Great example from Kevin here, I'd encourage more people to do it rather then consigning them to the storage areas or even the bin! Good luck with the F-14!!
  12. I'm not holding my breath atm! Rumour control some time back said it was cancelled? I'm afraid I don't know anymore on the real facts with the model's progress, but if it isn't, I'm also hoping for some up to date weaponry from it at some point? I'm also hoping they might consider doing the F3 version as well.
  13. If you can send him a picture of the door I'm sure he'd add it on. Cheers.
  14. A rep from Revell who I spoke too at Telford suggested at least two years before another version might become available? Another rep was also concerned about the undercart over complexities. I guess all will be revealed in due course!
  15. Really cool, going on my next list!
