1/18th Fw-190 from HobbyBoss

Recommended Posts

I am oddly interested in this kit. I hope the shapes are good. As far as the dauntless....i wish there was a little after market support. PE panel, brass gun barrels, wheels, belt buckles and masks/decals....

Seems like a lot of people assume that everything served on the plate MUST be consumed right there, right then. Portions are what the individual makes of them.

...

All the wacky size comments read just like the same type of comments made about 1/32 by smaller scale snobs.

Whoah! Steady there! We're neither "wacky" nor "snobs".

Just well adjusted folks with a sense of humour who don't want to leave the wings on the side of the worktop or put the propeller in a doggy bag.

110+ parts for an 1/18 kit, seems to be pretty basic.

Looks like sprue shots are up on the HB page. Doesn't look very impressive as far as detail goes, especially the faint detail on the IP.

Also in stock at Squadron.

Seems like it's pretty overpriced for what you get in the box IMHO.

Like I said back in the beginning of July, it's basically a toy like the stuff 21st Century Toys put out years ago.

Yep, as predicted, it is essentially a toy. I'd love it if I were 11 yrs old. Hope it sells to aunties and uncles and encourages their nephews and nieces into the hobby
