Looking forward to the mold, but I really have to hold out for Thach's Midway scheme. Hope that one comes next...

Re: Ultimate Soldier 1/48 database?

Resurrecting my old thread, but did they ever make Don Gentile's P-51B Shangri La in 1/48?

Edit: I see they made a similar one, Boise Bee?

Re: Museum Display with 1/48 aircraft

If you go back and take more pics, adjust the white balance on your camera to compensate for the sodium lights. There may even be a setting for that type of light, and you'll see a huge improvement...

Re: 1970's Plastic B-29 Bomber Toy

Have you tried searching through Woolworth catalog scans? Maybe you might get lucky and see a page with it on there if you can narrow it down to a few years.

1/32 Me-109E-4 GALLAND

I've got an Ultimate Soldier 32X Me-109 for sale. It is the yellow-nosed Adolf Galland paint scheme, like its larger 1/18 brother. It has politically incorrect decals applied to the tail, and is one of the rarer paint schemes in this scale (and I don't like to use rare lightly, but it took me awhile...

Has any one got any responses or actual product from this Bad Cat sale? I went ahead and ordered something from the website, but haven't received an email receipt or response, and of course they're not answering their phone.

BBI F-4 Phantom wings - are they removeable?

Has anyone taken apart their Phantom and found an easy way to take the wings off? It feels a bit snug when I try to remove them, and of course I don't want to break them in the process. This always seems to happen with the planes that came disassembled in the box (I had this problem with the 1/18 St...

Re: P-47 pilot accessories

Yeah, this was a Donnie Boy razorback in an original issue 21C box, but I have only found the stand for the figure so far, and can't seem to find any other accessories, which should have been with the rest of my surviving 21C stuff. The fact that navy pilots, nor the P-40 pilot, never had parachutes...

Can anyone remember if the P-47 pilots came with all of the accessories that the carded P-38 pilot figure had? I'm talking about the parachute, oxygen mask, knife, and holster. I'm putting together all the parts to my 1/18 razorback to go on sale, and I usually have been pretty good about keeping ev...

Re: 1/48 Hobby Master WWII plane opinions?

Thanks for those thorough answers! I think I may just get a Mustang as a sampler, as I'm also disappointed in the Corsair as I wanted the Bunker HIll scheme, but it doesn't even have the rockets. I also kind of wish there were more paint schemes for the spitfire, especially BOB era. I'll keep my eye...

1/48 Hobby Master WWII plane opinions?

For people that own some of these, what are your opinions on the 1/48 offerings? I have the 1/32 Dauntless, and do enjoy the crisp details, and I'm thinking of getting a 1/48 Mustang or Corsair. Just wondering if you think they're worth the premium price, and what you like/dislike about some of the ...

Hey Epap, sorry to deviate about the Flying TIgers P-40E, but are there any pictures out there showing them in Chinese markings? I'd like to make or get a P-40E that looks like the old 1/32 Revell box art, but have never seen proof of that combination of E model and FT markings. I know a lot of toys...

That is so disappointing. I was waiting for a better paint scheme, but at this point I think I'm shifting over to 1/48 scale so I am going to hold off.
