Re: SSHQ 1/18 Photo Data Base?

Hey Grunt, I am the guy who talked to you about maybe giving me access to simply update some photos and add maybe some stuff you didn't have. It's been so long now, I can't remember what was missing, but I have a massive collection and have at least a few that you don't have (like the P51 with the n...

Re: What does the wife really think about 18th ?

Lol, these stories are hilarious, so I will share mine.

Re: Tempest Project 1/18

Excellent as a "future" idea, BUT ONLY AFTER YOU BUILD a P-39 Airacobra, Yak-9, and or Ilyushin Il-2!!!

Those are such hugely produced WWII planes, and would offer some great German opposition planes!!!

ME-163 would be cool to have in production again...

After that, produce the obscure Tempest?

Re: What Is the Most Wanted Aircraft Project ?

Re: 1/18 Scale M-4A3E8 The Easy 8 Info Needed On Tracks

Matthew, How do these install? Do they have any strength when installed (had a few tanks show up who's tracks were completely EXPLODED in shipping...one was ridiculously hard to get glued back together, but I got it done, and the other one I returned). But the one I fixed was fragile due to the tens...

P-39 Aircobra

I could have sworn a good 3-5 years back now there was someone in the 1:18 scale forum making a P-39 Aircobra? I might have mixed up another plane someone made. If anyone knows if this was made, and who made it, please chime in.

Thanks!

Re: EDUARD COCKPIT PHOTOETCH FOR JSI 1/18 F-14A/B TOMCAT

Probably stupid, but I have no idea what a place "card" is? Are you referring to custom stands for the F14s or something else?

What is the difference between the A and the B versions? I guess the generic as well.

Interesting endeavor. I could possibly be tempted. I have all the f18s minus the blue angels which has got to be the ugliest color blue they could have ever chosen. It was a paint over something else that sort of echo'd through, muddying the whole look and I just couldn't stand to look at it. I coul...

My eye likes the look of the before, but the after is definitely more accurate looking I would say.

How much longer on this one before you start pouring and selling?

I completely agree with you about the Blue Angels junker plane. I own every 1:18, and even had that one through a purchase, but gad, it was so dang ugly and poorly done, I dumped it. I would rather not look at it. I considered a repaint to fix it, but passed. Something seemed wrong, like it was lack...

I am specifically looking for someone selling the 1:18 Panzer marked #634...anyone have that one and interested in selling it?

However, I am also looking for Panzer #122, and one other random panzer for a decent price for a conversion I would like to do.

Thank you for the help
