  1. As long as we’re posting our want lists, I’m hoping for a Quinta Studio set for the Trumpeter F-8E Crusader. Please! Bill M.
  2. Speaking of MER’s, I just ordered a couple of these off eBay. They look quite nice but l haven’t had a chance to really check them out. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-32-Multiple-Ejector-Rack-MER-Set-of-2-/403313436202?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m2548.l6249&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 And no, I have no interest in these except for being a potentially satisfied customer… Bill M.
  3. I ordered one for my F-105D kit. I didn’t like the $17 shipping cost, but then it is coming from Norway. Looking forward to it! Bill M.
  4. Surely would be nice if someone would reissue the Hasegawa 1/32 P-40K. It hasn’t seen the light of day for years…. Bill M.
  5. Looks like there are parts there to do a G-2. I’m looking forward to some tall tail 109’s and a run-of-the-mill G-6. I’m starting to get excited about this kit. Bill M.
  6. We live in northern New Mexico— Santa Fe to be exact. We also have a second home outside Pagosa Springs in southern Colorado. Both are in god’s country as far as I’m concerned. You’ll have a great time! Get some green chile, or red for that matter. New Mexico has some of the best anywhere. Try to get a good green chile cheeseburger— a New Mexico classic not to be missed! Bill M.
  7. I’ve been wondering the same thing, particularly with respect to an F-105D. Bill M.
  8. Looking forward to this! Just ordered a copy….. Bill M.
  9. Well, if Kotare decided to continue with the Spitfire lineage, I surely would love to see a Spitfire F. 22/24. Probably not likely, but as far as I’m concerned, it would make me quite happy! Bill M.
  10. Very exciting to see that work continues on the Kate! This, with the announced Val, will fill a long overlooked niche— that of the early Pacific War. I will be buying one of each for sure! Bill M.
  11. That is a beautiful Fw-190D-9! One question— where did you access the gun cover? I am not familiar with “Real Model 2020”. Bill M.
  12. As the war continues on, we are seeing the effect on our hobby. What can we expect? The first is the most obvious— we will largely lose access to Ukrainian-made products and manufacturers. I read in the news that Visa, Mastercard and PayPal are cutting off business with Russia. I suspect this will mean that we will also lose access to Russian-made products and manufacturers. If you are looking for Ukrainian and Russian modeling products, you might want to search among American, European and other non-Ukrainian and non-Russian retailers as I suspect the spigot is being cut off and they won’t be restocking. Just saying… I have my thoughts about the war, but will keep those to myself…. Bill M.
  13. Thanks Dennis and others. This is exactly the kind of information I was looking for. Most helpful! Bill M.
  14. Haha! Yes to that! I have no illusions about the Special Hobby Ki-27 being up to the quality of the GWH P-40. I just thought it would look good displayed alongside an AVG P-40. Bill M.
  15. Now that I have a Special Hobbies Ki-27 Nate on the way (to provide a worthy antagonist for my GWH AVG Tomahawk), I’m wondering what peoples’ experiences are with this kit. Any advice one way or another? There wasn’t a lot of solid information on the net. Seems a simple kit without an over abundance of resin and photo etch. Will probably build it as a 77th Sendai Nate as opposed the AVG in Burma in early 1942. Bill
  16. Wow! A Val and a Kate!! — will be getting both for sure! Bill M.
  17. If we’re doing wild a— guesses here, I would say a Spitfire F.22/24– last of the Spitfires. Why? It would appeal to a UK audience and modelers around the world. I have no information they are doing one— it is just my guess. But if they did, I would happily buy one…. Bill M.
  18. That’s great! Maybe a set of correct Y-rails too? Both will be most welcome! Bill M.
  19. And actually, the Trumpeter Y- launcher racks aren’t correct. They were asymmetrical, not symmetrical as Trumpeter provides. I have long desired to have an aftermarket correct set of y-launcher mounts and rails. Some have said they would consider some, but nothing has appeared on the market yet. Still hoping though! Bill M.
  20. I am excited to get one of these kits. But I won’t preorder one. I’ll just wait to when it appears on the market. That will be fast enough! Bill M.
  21. I agree. I don’t think $150 is bad at all, considering what comes on the kit. It would appear that this kit might be comparable or even superior to recent offerings by Tamiya and ZM. I have been wanting a good P-40 Tomahawk, so I’ll be purchasing one. By the way, I notice from the box art and the pictured decals, that Nationalist Chinese wing markings are not included. I suppose that is not surprising considering the Chinese origins of the kit and the present political climate. Bill M.
