Re: 1/18 FW 190A - BACK OPEN

Glad to see that the FW 190 A has finally been produced. That took a long time, and was having serious doubts about whether it would ever get past the teaser stage. Not sure why they wouldn't release in the US, as easily the biggest market for 1/18. Does look pretty good, and much better than the so...

Re: Dragon Armor 1/35 Tiger Tank & Diorama Base

Think the Dragon 1/35 is an awesome line, but the scale is its demise. As has been argued in the past, between FoV 1/32, and Dragon 1/35, pluses, and minus's for both. Biggest problem for the Dragon 1/35 is it's scale. Simply doesn't realisticly display with the "standard" 1/32. Fortunately, not an ...

Re: Crazy prices

Those 1/18 prices are crazy :shock: But if you consider no one will be making these very large, and unique models anymore, can see the prices going up. Way up. We all know the models were under priced from the get go. By quite some bit. Don't agree with the prices listed in this thread, but supply a...

Re: Canadian Collection

That would be the one to get cnq. But HM has done quite a few Canadian Sabres, some with very attractive schemes.
I have both the Corgi and HM Golden Hawks Sabre, and the HM is quite a bit better, as the Corgi is an old mold.

Re: How big should 1/18 scale aircraft get?

Think the JSI 1/18 Tomcat is as large as you could resonably go. Most people just don't have the room for anything larger than that. Even the P-38 and Avenger are already pushing the limits, in my opinion. When you have a model that is 3 feet long/ wingspan, potential customers are far fewer than 1/...

Re: BBi F-16 Viper/Falcon Official Thread

Wow, this is an old thread, resurrected. :D

Always been a big fan of the BBI Vipers and Hornets, and although the F-16 is slightly oversized, you wouldn't notice unless you display it side by side with the Hornet.

I wonder if we will see another F-16, or F-18 from BBI ?

Re: BBI 1/18 Hartmann Bf109G on sale at the Mule!!

I know the dump/sale of the BBI models is due to BBI itself wanting to loose inventory. My local hobby store also has all the said BBI models in stock at the moment for comparatively low prices. I have to agree with dragon53 that I have no idea what this means and personally feel it does not bode w...

Re: 1/18 Stuart. If They Build It Will They Come ?

Not a big armour guy, and only have a Tiger in 1/18.

Stuart seems like an odd choice, but can see it for those that have the other more mainstream tanks.

Not really for me, but again, I am more of a 1/32, 1/35 armour guy.
