Did you think they would come in at the old price points? That was never going to happen.

Re: 1:18 Panzer I Ausf. F project

I have to unfortunately say that is not the actual Ausführung you are looking to make here, as it is not an F. I happen to be building the Hobby Boss kit right now and this is what it looks like: https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/firearmcentral/images/6/6f/Panzerkampfwagen_I_Ausf_F.jpg/revision/la...

Re: MIDWAY movie

I actually watched it last night myself, because 1917 wasn't available. I felt it was a little rushed myself by having to include PH and the raid. There were a lot of little scenes that seemed to be stuck in there just to act as transitions but needed a bit more fleshing out. Some were so short I do...

Re: 1:18 VW

That's a nice 1952 sedan.

Fill in that 5-sided flap in front of the doors and you'll time travel back to the 1940's.

It's not on your end. Something is going on as I can access from my phone but it is no longer keeping me logged in when I use my PC at home. It won't recognize the cookie I enable to stay logged.

Well, the molds probably got dispersed amongst the creditors owed money when 21st collapsed and who knows what might have happened to some of them. China doesn't have the best record with things like that when it comes to who owns what copyright or property. Since this is the first time I've seen th...

Re: How To Make Easy Realistic Looking Tracks

It's a common mistake but once you submit to the internet and ask why those Panthers have 3 pipes on one side it is very clear. And in fact you can see the actual thing on the few running Panthers with that arrangement. The early Panthers had an issue with unburnt fuel buildup under the engine and i...

Re: How To Make Easy Realistic Looking Tracks

Now you know real track doesn't get anywhere near that rusty on a working vehicle, right?

Also, those two smaller pipes on either side of the left-hand exhaust pipe aren't exhausts. They are cool air intakes and they do not get heat oxidation like an exhaust pipe does. They keep their paint.

Re: Star Wars Combat Assault Tank

Funny how it says "theirs $49.99". That "theirs" is likely Toys'r'Us as Ollies mentioned buying out the leftovers from a recently bankrupt retail toy corporation. And from what I know about that bankruptcy is that even at 70% off retail the Star Wars toys were not moving, so Ollies got a TON of that...

Re: 1/18 Tiger II And Jagdtiger Building Instructions

The radio man's port should be skewed at an angle. It should also be in the spot shown on the model kit and not right in front of the hatch.

For an example: Wizards of the Coast, owned by Hasbro, is the company that gave us Magic the Gathering.

Re: MIDWAY movie

The movie industry courts China not because of cheap labor but for the number of potential tickets sales that huge population represents. Involving Tencent is a way of finding access to those sales but it also involves having them guide scripts away from stepping over the party line. Star Wars and o...

Re: 21st Century 1/32 plane defects

Well, you can't really compare 21st to Corgi and the like, as like you said 21st were toy-like...because they WERE toys first and foremost. The other were geared more to the collector crowd with BBI being the low-end of that spectrum.

Re: MIDWAY movie

I think the goal is to lock us into streaming so they retain control over the media and charge for every viewing. Disney has gone so far as to announce they are locking the Marvel movies behind their own service so you can't watch them anywhere else like Hulu or Netflix.

Re: MIDWAY movie

Reviews are starting to eat it up. Apparently with all the attention to detail on costumes and CGI vehicles, they forgot to write authentic 1940's dialog. One review said it would be better watched at home with the volume off.

Lot of money for a panzer not to be the proper shade of gray. Has to be much darker than that.
