Has a couple of minor issues such as 1. broken tail tab, 2. broken vertical tail from being glued, 3. some glue spots from shop owner glui...

Merti at Comic Con 2019.

Heard from a friend that Merit has a booth at this year's San Diego Comic Con. Wondering if anyone can confirm and if there's anything 1/18 scale.

Looking to trade for Pacific TBF Avenger

Hi members,

I have a 1/18 scale Bbi Lieutenant JG Alexander Vraciu F6F Hellcat that is brand new in box (never opened) that I'd like to trade for a Pacific Theater TBF Avenger. I'm hoping someone on the board is interested.

Please pm me if you fit the bill!

Thank you!!

Re: Good Trader Report - PART 2 - Post good Trade stories he

Wanted to say how impressed I am with Bob (blitteer) on a deal for the Bbi F-16. He offered a great deal, did a fantastic job of packaging and shipping, and most importantly was very honest in the description/condition of the plane. Very stand up guy and honest dealer! Thanks again Bob!

Re: JSI Spot Cat redone

That LOOKS Great! I still need to do my spot cat. What paint did you use and did you apply all by hand? I spent about 4 hrs total masking the markings and applying paint using makeup sponges. I used Testors Light Ghost Gray which matched exactly with the original color. I forgot the paint sku numbe...

JSI Spot Cat redone

This is my Special Edition electronic Spot Cat which I repainted using makeup sponges. It turned out pretty decent for minimal effort (about 4 hrs total masking and painting). http://i868.photobucket.com/albums/ab244/trex0770/JSI%20Tomcat/0106002222.jpg http://i868.photobucket.com/albums/ab244/trex0...

WTB complete front landing gear/wheels for F-14

Hi,

This is a long shot but I have a project 1/18 F-14 that I'm working on and was wondering if anyone has salvage 1/18 F-14 front landing gear and wheels. Also could use the main landing wheels too! Thanks!! - tl

Matthew, Those are awesome.....I know because I have the kits you sent me way back when. Your kits and customs are second to none! Anyone wanting the Blackhawk couldn't do better than your upgrades and the prices are worth it, especially when you consider what the original Bbi Blackhawks have been f...

Re: Salvage Yard

Hi fellas,

If anyone could help me to find a replacement windshield and canopy for the Merit Int'l. AV8B Harrier I would be forever appreciative! My Harrier's glass could not survive the curiosity of a 6 yr.

Thank you so much!

Re: REVIEW OF THE 1/18 scale Harrier AV-8B

I also just fixed the gap issue. My plane had globs of glue that had dried and were impeding the wing root from snapping all the way down. I pried the wing root up, scraped the glue, applied new glue and now it sits flush...looks 100x better too!

Here's some updated photos of my Harrier with a spare Litening pod and GBU-16 (from the JSI/Merit F-14) as well as a reference photo. Btw, the predrilled holes in the GBU-16 lined up perfectly with the Harrier's tabs, they just needed to be enlarged ever so slightly. Still need to do some modificati...

Re: REVIEW OF THE 1/18 scale Harrier AV-8B

Been a long time since I posted anything. Anyway, I picked up the Harrier yesterday w/out really reading any of the reviews b/c I didn't want to be persuaded into or out of buying it. I figured I would buy it, warts and all, because I like the plane. I also wanted to support Merit b/c they really tr...
