  1. No idea, I never was interested in these.
  2. I couldn't find any on few walkarounds seen. IDF has these numbers on all F-15s, both gray(F-15A-D) and camouflaged(F-15I).
  3. Well, good luck finding 1/32 Mig-29C for ~$66 shipped and big Tamiya F-16 for ~$87 in US. Maybe 5-7 years ago for the latter, but doubt it.
  4. $97 shipped if ordered until 6/30. $109.99, 20% off + $10 ground shipping.
  5. Cheapest would be $97 oh Luckymodel, for patient only
  6. It never took more than 2 months of actual shipping time so far. And I think $150 difference is worth the wait.
  7. Luckymodel with their current sale of 20% off everything, 25% off $240 and $10 shipping beats SB with one hand down. Just for comparison, my last order with LM is $250 (after all discounts) for 4 kits (2 x 1/32 and 2 x 1/48) and couple of small AM items. Same kits from SB will be close to $400 (they don't have 1/48 Il-28 in stock, other 3 run for $343 after discount) so with all due respect to Mr. Kwan, I'll pass.
  8.

  9. I will be there for the first couple of days.
  10. No need to know Chinese. http://www.trumpeter-china.com/index.php?g=home&m=article&a=show&id=150 Bummer.
  11. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Isra-Cast-Israel-AF-F-16C-Block-40-Conversion-Kit-for-Tamiya-F-16CJ/264200327568?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  12. They still list 2013 catalog on their home page so I think the site is dead.
  13. Strange, but I do remember my first kit. It was Russian made Mi-2 helicopter, probably by Krugozor factory. Don't remember much about it, I was just 7 or 8 and my dad did most of the work. He never built plastic models but got me deep into it. I switched to flying models (F2B and F1A) soon after and continued till high school graduation. Apparently no pictures of that Mi-2 left as nobody cared to take one. As for latest one, here it is, 1/48 KH Su-34:
