Re: Small Scale WW2 Fighters, Attackers, Floaters, etc.

Very nice collection as usual Epap, I do admire your painting skills as it elevates your models to a whole new level. I'm kinda the same as you as I would like an example of every warbird represented in my collection and it seems broadening the scales and not limiting yourself to 1/144-1/48 scale (d...

Re: New Hobby Master F-5E and Spitfire Mk.VIII

Re: What Might Have Been ....Will The A-10 Become A Reality

I'm one of those wishing for a 1/18 A-10 but call me naive, I was hoping for a price lower then that. At $500 unpainted kit (plus overseas shipping for me) you can't blame people (whatever painting skills or financial situation they are in) for taking a step back and wondering if you really could or...

Re: Witty Wings 1:72

I have a few models from Witty and so my opinions are limited to what I have, plus from what I have read from the diecast forums. The most important feature for me is that Witty models from the older releases all have fixed landing gear. I like having optional gear so I am quite pleased that the rec...

Re: 1/18 Huey B from JSI exclusive for Merit International

Besides the difference in price between JSI and 21st, another thing to consider is that JSI has no pilot figures, and these are hard to come by in the secondary market. So depends if anyone who's interested thinks that a pilot is absolutely necessary might still go for a 21st one though its priced h...

I have a Corgi 1:72 Swordfish as well (its in my blurry shelf picture on the top shelf, under the Corgi Lancaster). I lucked out and got the rare HMS Ark Royal version that participated in...

Re: Is there any demand for spare 1/18th parts?

I know you guys are mostly vehicle, or more specifically aircraft oriented, but I would love to get some extra stuff for my figures. I could really use extra arms, and more importantly, hands for my 1/18 scale soldiers from both 21st and Unimax brand figures. Part of the reason why I like to say th...
