Re: Who wants a " Natter " ? Book Wanted !!

I could go with any paint scheme on my full build Natter. If I had to pick I would go with an experimental winter scheme.

Re: HUEY-Battle Damage??

Yes mine is just like the unboxed one! This confirms that it is supposed to look that way. Actually, I believe the "paint chip" weathering effect is supposed to be standard... Take a look at the photos of the actual unboxed product from TheFlyingMule: http://www.flyingmule.com/products/JS-60007 I wi...

With a weathered chipped paint effect.

Mine has quite a lot of paint chipping (silver showing through) and the Ace white background is also signifi...

Re: JSI Black Knights vs. Spot Cat.

I love my F-14 but I agree that it is on the edge of being too fiddley/twiddley to display. I have mine hanging also. Looks great but one good bump and the various twiddley parts will come raining down :(

Oh man!!!! More beautiful than I would have ever imagined!

How are you shipping them? Will we get a tracking #?

I am a complete klutz. How hard to attach the little fiddly parts?

Can't wait to see your masterpiece in person!
