Re: Crazy prices

Those prices are insane but it doesn't surprise me. About a month ago, I sold a displayed Century Wings 1/72 F-8 Crusader (USMC Shamrocks), had the box, certificate, everything. It has been out of the box for nearly 9 years and got dusty in the Iraq desert too. Detailed description and really nice p...

Re: 1/18 FW-190A?

Less Filling? Tastes Great? Jesus age Christ. It's a pre-built model made by teenagers in China. If it comes with a Black Ice Tree Air Freshner over the Revi16B gunsight, I'd be just fine and happy. For once the dang thing is coming to fruition. This isn't the joke that was the SpotCat. This is catt...

Re: Opinions on value

The Eagleston P-47 is probably worth the most of that bunch. The Sabre is the less desirable of the two color schemes (The Huff commands a higher price). I'll disagree with Jnewboy on the values. I think the Sabre and P-47, definitely. The Mig can be had for less but is the desirable color, the P-38...

Re: 1/6 U-2 "Clint Eastwood" pilot

In all actuality, not a bad price considering the previous U-2 figure is going through the stratosphere (pun intended) in terms of price/value. I was extremely lucky to have bought my F-4 Phantom pilot two years ago at its original price from a local comic shop. That figure alone will fetch north of...

Re: Admiral Prototypes

21C trying to steal Admiral's thunder with that ridiculous 1/32 Tamiya photo was just laughable and downright embarrassing.

I REALLY had wished Admiral had gone ahead with the A-1. What a gorgeous aircraft and the prototype absolutely nailed the look of it.
