Re: How does your collection grow?

I definitely passed on some good aircraft I wish I would have bought at really low prices. Recently paid just a little more than usual for a Merit Midway SBD that I was missing. Prices have jumped considerably since then. Maybe because of the upcoming Midway movie. There's a picture of an SBD on the...

My bad.

I seem to remember each alien having a different look with each plane that had one.

That one's got a red bathrobe.

It's been lowered to 50% off. Completed auction for this model highest is $299 plus ship. I usually see these as the Flight 19 leader, and not the others (how many 5 total?) with the alien crew member . Kinda funny twist they did. That's one I have.

Re: Merti at Comic Con 2019.

It would be nice to see them offer another 1:18 or other scale pre-built and painted aircraft. Would be nice but I wouldn't hold my breath. The most logical would be an A-8 Focke Wulf 190 as a follow up to the A-5 like the Hobby Boss kit. I agree. Thought the Graf scheme was a little over the top, ...

Re: No more 1/18 Planes?

Always thought 1:32 is the perfect scale for prebuilt large aircraft where the possibility of having a four engine bomber is not beyond the realm as 1:18 is. A relatively new thing now is you can buy model kits of four engine bombers as well as twins that are available in 1:32 is proof the scale is ...

Weren't there 4 formerly 21st Century Toys P-51D's released not too long ago? One was American Beauty along with the three others. I do think some 1:18 like the FW-190 need to be run again, particularly since the Graf paint scheme was probably not as appealing as possible others. The Merit SBD is an...

Re: How does your collection grow?

It's been a while since I bought anything 1:18. Most of what I have is from years ago when prices were a lot lower. 90% aircraft.

Still missing a few planes I don't have, but what I want will probably have to be traded for.

Need to make an inventory.

Except for the Pre-War or occasional Joe Foss version I have never seen any Carousel 1 Wildcats go below $100, especially the Butch O' Hare so this is welcome.

Already have the Bunker Hill Avenger so I'm good there. Always wanted a Midway Avenger though. The light blue looks a little more like a baby blue than the actual color used.

The all silver version would be easier to make a code 3 of, particularly if you were making another US Navy version like ...
