Re: 1/18 A4E Skyhawk 2019

Like the idea that this will be fibreglass, a bit more stable than resin and a lot more lighter. This has piqued my interest in the Skyhawk. Personally keeping it simple without a deluge of moving parts is probably the way to go. If the F-4 turns out to be fibreglass too then again would be interest...

1/18 Harrier kit- Trumpeter - merit mold Jan 18

Looks like the Harrier will be released as a kit in Jan by Hobbyboss/Trumpeter. Box art shows a gun pack and a few additional pods.

Maybe Trump/HB could release the F-14 as a kit....

Re: Where is everyone?

Still here but don't visit as often since the demise of 21st Century and the lack of new releases. I really had my hopes pinned on an 1/18th F-4 whether from Admiral or 21st. Also the Skyraider...what a missed opportunity but understand why it never came to fruition. I still have a sizeable collecti...

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

I had heard several years ago from a reliable source that a harrier was coming out but given the time that has passed I never believed it.

Here's a thought what happened to all the Phoenix missiles they must have had in inventory once the Tomcat was decommissioned? At a $1m price tag each, as I'm led to believe....quite expensive to just scrap...or did they just have a free for all shoot out against F-4 drones by the end?

Fightertown decals are very high quality with a tight film backing, I use them on smaller scales without silvering if you have a good glosscoat- they look painted on.

Likelihood is that the paint used on the plane will be acrylic based- any acid will eat through and ruin the finish further. I'm not sure how this aircraft has been finished- however the shade looks like US modern light gull gray. Testors, xtracolour, lifecolor, vellajo all do a version that can be ...
