Re: What Is Your Favorite Twin Engine Aircraft ?

YF-23. So sleek, so sinister, so right.

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: Any Scoop on the new 1/18th Scale Harrier...?

I just picked mine up today. I totally forgot about requesting this from my local hobby store many moons ago. No pictures yet, but I'm very happy today!

Re: 1/18 F-14 Tomcat?

I would not mind getting another, especially if it were a Tomcat. I like mine, but the Bombcat just isn't the same.

Re: What Happened To

No prototype was ever made of the B-25 or the Mig-21. The only prototypes I saw were a F-4 Phantom and a A-1 Skyraider by Admiral. JSI had a proto F-15 Eagle and a Su-27. Maybe we will see those in the future. Those in the know aren't saying. Oh, I would love to see a good manufactured MiG-21 PFM! ...

Re: Any Scoop on the new 1/18th Scale Harrier...?

$240? I've spent more for diecast 1:18 cars. I'm in for at least one, maybe more. I hope they give us a heads up as the release date nears.

Re: Who Would Want an F-117 ?

I'm planning to build one next, after I finish building a few MiG-21s. Same reasoning as you stated, all facets. Right now the plan is to use a paper model and rescale it. Talking with a co-worker, we may use carbon fiber panels, really. We've been talking about laying up two to four plys flat on th...

Re: Is Kickstarter a Means of Getting Our A-10 ?

My F-14 was $300. So for a model of the A-10 I would be real happy under that price with retracting gear, opening canopy, and something to hang off the wing stations. Is it too early to ask about paint schemes?

Re: What is in the future of our Beloved 1/8th Scale

I have no intention of switching scales. It seems that die cast cars in 1:18 are doing just fine, I wish that armor and aircraft were like they were in the '90s, but I guess that means that I have to start scratch building those items I want. Besides, one of the reasons I collect 1:18 is that it is ...

Re: 1/18 scale Predator ( Plane Not Alien ) do we need it ?

I have been planning to scale up a paper model Predator from Paper-replika to get a 1:18 version.
