Re: Any decent Pearl Harbor pre built Zeroes? 1/72

Most of the Witty Zeroes have permanent wheels down, however three to four of the last releases in the "brown box" have u/c gear up or down. Usually you can spot them at retail in the $39 range and the old ones lower priced. There is one grey Pearl Harbor A6M3 in there and one grey A6M2, but the lat...

Re: First pics of AF1 B-25 appear

I'm pretty much the same. Have the second release Corgi Doolittle Raider so pass for me. Does have possibilities though. About the price of a Hobby Master 1:72 twin. I'm hoping they make an all tan MTO version or something else I don't already have. Got the B-17 on pre-order...crossing my fingers.

Re: 1/144 P-36 UPDATE Sunday 11-8-15

I like the Micro Krystal Klear solution for the windows JR, never heard of it till now, looks like it works well. So… Taylor drove an orange Buick to the airfield during the attack. I wonder if the Japanese pilots had any difficulty spotting that car from the air. :shock: Projects are coming along n...

Re: 1/144 P-36 UPDATE 10-26-15

That's kool you can have different versions of the Mowhawk for Pearl. Like that Rasmussen P-36. Yeah something like that diorama, though now it would probably be more of an authentic location huh. I read Taylor's squadron plane was 316, but that was destroyed at Wheeler and he flew 155 of another sq...

Re: Anyone closed the divebrakes on the HM Dauntless?

It's not like HM couldn't make them with dive brakes closed. They made five closed and nine open, but they are not in sequence and random, unlike the Helldiver with only the first couple closed. I have four of the closed SBD's if you count the Banshee and the last offering with them opened. Probably...

Yeah, folks were pretty brutal on this including me, but it's like they didn't even try to make it right. Something got lost in translation at AF1. It doesn't bode well for the upcoming 1:72 WWII birds if this is the attention given to the B-29. Who did they think would buy this? It's a kid's toy at...

I think with the earlier Butcher Bird, if the 1:32 version was any indicator, it would have been far better detailed. I woul...

When I can get them from the same squadron and the same time frame yeah. Closest I've gotten is the 610 Squadron Spitfire set of three from Corgi, after tracking them down individually. There's an HM 610 Beaufighter so that might work too. You can find some from the same squadron sometimes, but like...

Anyone can make a biased film and bend some facts. It's true, dannyc. Anyone can make a documentary just like anyone can edit Wikipedia.

Danny, don't know what you are watching, there's a lot of rewriting of history or bending the truth out there. Especially by people who have some political gain, but the facts are history.

What he fails to mention (because it's Fox News) is the Iraqi government we helped set up had an option to keep us there, but they threw us out and wanted a complete withdrawal.

agreed. The obvious bias on other diecast forums really gets tiresome. I'm certain some of the posters are getting perks from HM (or Corgi) or perhaps even work for them. Instantaneous bashing of competing products is the clue in. Most collectors should be delighted AF1 is on the scene and be suppo...

I understand being tired of the same planes and especially the same paint schemes. I have been buggy the powers to be to make a F4 Wildcat with plug in wheels and price it under $95. and make 4 color schemes at the same time. I think it would bring excitement and the price point would be a winner. ...

Ok, got one thanks guys. Very colorful looking. There aren't any pics out there except for the stock photo so can't exactly see what's painted on the sides but looks interesting. The whole plane looks like it's got a lot going on with the paint. 8)
