More 1/72 Ebay items

I've officially moved onto 1/48, so all the 1/72 stuff I'd held onto for the last 20 years now will be going.

My Recent 1/48 Aircraft Completed

These are the most recent models I've managed to complete. I'm no master modeler, but with the durth of 1/18, I've taken it up again after 20 years. http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t223/chunks_album/IMG_0683.jpg http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t223/chunks_album/IMG_0681.jpg http://i161.photobu...

1/72 Ebay kits

My first foray into Ebay. Still learning to sell. It's time to pass on my 1/72 collection. At 15/week if they always sell, should only take 2 or 3 years!!

Thanks everyone, I do miss 1/18. Worry about it? I guess not too much. There's just too many options.

:lol: Granch sir, I'm always at home. During the holidays, I'm home even longer. My alarms are three very noisy and hostile domesticated mini-lions. NWarty, here's some more arty in 1/6 and 1/144.

Re: do you ever worry about your hobby?

1/18 was what got me back into these hobbies. It'll be back someday. Since the hobby got started again, I'd gone into 1/6, but it to has become lacking due to few original releases. I'm now collecting 1/48-50 until something new comes along. So far that's only been in 1/6 but still scarce. Some 1/48...

Wrong scale, but in case you haven't seen these. They were released by Armoury about 7-8 years ago.

Weird, they're offering some recently released 1/6 stuff just from a quick glance. Namely the Soldier Story Iwo marine and tank traps.

Doesn't make sense.

Owe, I'm sorry to hear that. Doesn't help, but take a look at the feedback he's left. Leaving negative feedback seems to be his specialty.

Does ebay have a way to report what seems to be just his way of doing business?

A little bit more on the fillet. According to this site, the fillet was added when the a/c was assigned to Captain Charles E. "Chuck" Weaver from Major Arval J. Roberson.

Sorry, just attempting to address some of the concerns about the fin fillet in the latest photos but not in the earlier ones.

Also here's the missing link.

IIRC the fin fillet was due to the a/c becoming unstable when in some configuration/airspeed conditions, this was true of most models. When a fix was found, it was incorporated into all new construction and kits supplied for field installation on airframes still in service. ""One report stated: “Unl...

OK, went to the way back machine and it looks like the rebranding was to be Museum Military Miniatures. Still too generic for Google.

I understand he was rebranding to "Modern Military Miniatures" or something like in order to get Toys out of the business name and concentrate on one-off high commission items. His stuff is real good, no doubt about it. To generic to Google, but I understand that MTS is/was (as of 6 months ago) one ...
