Re: 1/32 Forces of Valor.Where are they? *UPDATE 3-11-2014*

It's Sunday morning For anyone who remembers the "All in The Family" theme song, here's a little take on it going out to all of us. Oh for (most) of the models from 21st and FOV we gladly payed. Armor and aircraft that (mostly) made our hit parade. Plastic and diecast nuts like us we had it made, th...

Re: what's the appeal of 1/72 tanks?

I really don't collect collect 1:72 armor anymore, I have a select "essential" FoV and Dragon pieces left, but I do actively collect 1:72 aircraft and it is the same deal. I'd say it has to do as much with space as how much detail tradeoff a collector is willing to accept. I am willing to sacrifice ...

Re: 1/32 Forces of Valor..Where are they?...I have answers

I agree with Snake. Less detail all around plus the die cast content decreasing while the prices increase just doesn't work for me. I have a lot of fine looking FOV vehicles from back when "Enthusiast Edition" actually meant something. Now "Factory Fresh Edition" would be more fitting.

Re: New Oxford 1:72nd Scale Releases Announced

You would be surprised how many more planes you can fit on a shelf having both ways. Yes I do this with Easy Model planes. The permanently extended gear on those doesn't annoy me, maybe because they are so cheap. :lol: I also display one on the shelf underneath another one that's on the stand, so y...

Hey Rows, on a side note, I decided to check out the Corgi Recon Spitfire PR XIX after seeing yours, and it's not at all like most of the Corgi Spits. Really crisp lines for a Corgi and very nice details like three clear camera ports, propellor markings etc. You barely blow on the five bladed prop ...

Yeah, installing the gear doors and ordinance is a snap. You just snap the tabs into the slots and they snap right back out on their own five seconds later. Then you throw them at the wall. :roll: The white glue is a great idea Dauntless, I used to use that trick for canopy's on 1:48 aircraft kits. ...

Good review, Rows. I have the Corgi Bong P-38, and my Witty are limited to a couple of jets. Does sound like a bit of a PITA to get ready for display, and know a few companies are guilty of this. Overall, it does sound pretty good, once you have it "assembled", but like you, why do I need glue? Exa...

Well I finally had time to put it together. The Good Over all a great looking P-38. The polished aluminum finish is really nice and the painting and printing is crisp and well done. The nose art of Marge on the nose looks great. Lots of detail in both the die-cast and plastic portions of the model. ...

Pre-painted 1:72 WWII Carrier Flight Deck Crew Figures?

I plan on replacing my Easy Model 1:72 Hellcat and Corsair with Diecast as I am now addicted and I prefer my aircraft wheels up.

Re: Corgi Is Doing A Survey

Take a long hard look at the SkyMax Bearcat before buying one. This model has been severely criticized for its lack of wing dihedral, giving it an almost droopy look. If that doesn't bother you, than no problem. Thanks for the warning. Looking closely at some pictures I can see the problem. Having ...

Re: Forces of Valor maybe pricing themselves out of the mark

I haven't picked up any FoV armour for a few years now. Although, I haven't picked up any other armour models, either. Although I agree that their prices do seem to be increasing, with a reduction in quality, and weathering, so it seems you are paying more for less. Not something you want to see. S...
