  1. Yes they do. Link— https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?sid=rustusmanov&isRefine=true&_pgn=1
  2. I’ve ordered three of these sets in the past—two variants of the G-5/6 and the G-10 “Erla”. They were each exceptional. You will not be disappointed. I ordered off eBay and it was no problem at all. Really good stuff! Bill M.
  3. This looks great! I’ll get a set for sure. Will it also work for a G-14/AS? Bill M.
  4. Well, that’s a bit disappointing that it is 1/48. Sure hope they also do it in 1/32. Any idea which model of P-38 they are doing? Bill M.
  5. True that— I don’t recall that you specifically said that a Kittyhawk TBD Devastator was coming. But there were a couple of dropped hints that there might be a TBD coming— then nothing. As for “Trump-y-boss”, I think most of us have long given up on them doing a TBD. And to tell the truth, I would rather see it come from Kitty Hawk. Bill M.
  6. Good to hear from Kittyhawk! The F-84’s will be great, but I would still love to see that TBD Devastator that was hinted at years ago. Kittyhawk may be our only hope! Bill M.
  7. Congrats! That is a beautiful area. I’ve done a lot of hiking and climbing there in my earlier days. You picked a great area to tie the knot! Bill M.
  8. Where were you at 11,000 feet?
  9. I think there is merit in what you are saying. First, I don’t think it is 1/72. More likely 1/48 or 1/32. As to the measurements of the sprue and part number, I wouldn’t be surprised to learn those were added to throw us off. Remember, having this screen shot on open display was deliberate— this could not have been an accident. Kind of Tamiya’s way of announcing a new kit for the Shizuoka show where they had no formal LSP announcement. And as has been stated, I am sure the Tamiya folks are finding amusement in our reactions to their planted hint. So does this indicate something is coming? My guess is yes, a P-38 is coming from Tamiya. Will it be 1/72, 1/48 or 1/32 scale? I don’t think it’s 1/72 because of its level of detail. The sprue information means nothing. That is likely an bogus add-on to throw us off. Is it 1/48 or 1/32? Maybe it’s wishful thinking on my part, but I would go with 1/32 scale. I’m just thinking that there have been good 1/48 P-38’s, but a good P-38 in 1/32 scale is sorely needed. Those are my thoughts on this... Bill M.
  10. I see reports on someone’s Facebook page that a computer screen with a cad drawing, clearly showing a P-38 nose along with the accompanying sprue was seen and photographed on a Tamiya factory tour. The photograph was part of the post. If true, was it 1/48 or 1/32 scale. Of course, now I can’t find it. Will keep looking. Is anyone else aware of this? Bill M. EDIT: I see this is already being discussed! Don’t know how I could have missed this! Sorry about the duplicitous post!
  11. Yes, he is a good guy. In years past, I had sold him a few odds and ends and it was a pleasure dealing with him. Bill M.
  12. Working with “The Dude” to hopefully sell him the whole lot. Thanks! Bill M.
  13. More info on the collection— I’m at work now, but I would guess that each box is at least 48” x 24” x 24” ; there are three of these boxes, and each are packed full. There are many larger kits, including original boxings of Monogram B-17G, B-24J, B-29, A-26C and B-36. Also old, maybe original boxing of Tamiya 1/25 Tiger I tank. Other old Monogram kits too. LSP’s include old or original boxing’s of Hasegawa F6F Hellcat, F-86 Sabre, (2) P-51D Mustangs, Tamiya F-14A Tomcat, Revell F-15E. Numerous smaller scale planes like early boxing of Hasegawa B-47E, Testors F-4G, Entex 1/100 L-1011 and Concorde. Those are just the ones I remember offhand. I appreciate everyone’s help. Bill Moyers
  14. Yes, I’ll try contacting the guy in Texas to see if he is interested. I may call any hobby shops in the area too. My plan at this point is to try selling the collection as a whole, cheaply. I just want to get rid of them. If that doesn’t work out, I’ll try listing some of the more desirable kits on EBay and some of the LSP’s here. Those that don’t sell and still remain, I may donate them to a local boys and girls club or to a local modeling club. At least that is the plan now. Thanks all! Bill Moyers Santa Fe, NM
