Re: Leo Models Diecast Aircraft

No, not up for sale. Another that they aren't reissuing along with the CR-42. :?

Looked it up, sleek looking for a WWI biplane.

Hopefully if the line is popular enough we might see it and others that are missing from the lineup.

Re: Leo Models Diecast Aircraft

The Ansaldo is the RO-37? (it doesn't say)

Goes nicely with the CR-32. 8)

Both it says saw some service in WWII.

Re: Obama threatened to down Israeli jets

Though you're probably a little too young to vote Dannyc, give it till 2016 and things can take a complete 180 turn around. Once again the propaganda machine is stirring up trouble to that end. It will happen when (if) the opposition takes power by the other side, though maybe a little less vitrioli...

Re: Leo Models Diecast Aircraft

So they are nicely done then. The prices are the same as the Amercom models. From what I can see the detail seems to be better than the Amercom's. The WWI biplanes look to be worth having as well. Been putting off getting any WWI, but there are enough out there in 1:72 scale to start collecting them...

Re: Leo Models Diecast Aircraft

Thanks, may as well wait as it takes a while from Poland anyways. It looks good though. I see the Savoi Marchette SM-81 that was so hard for me to get. Along with the SM-55X which I never got yet, and the Flying Boxcar Fairchild too. Where's the Falco though? The CR-42 is missing from the line-up. :(

Re: New toys

Re: New toys

I got one of these FOV B-25's a while back. The QC was so bad I sent it back. It had glue finger prints all over one of the top wings. Really showed up on the silver finish. Was offered another but decided the FOV olive drab version I have of the same squadron was good enough. Not a bad deal for the...

Re: 1/144 aircraft pre-builts????

I recommend both the die cast and plastic models. There is some assembly required for the F-Toys Cafereo etc. lines. Though they are painted and some but not all the insignia are painted on. You have to apply some decals though. The reason why as Epap said they may be flimsy is they are mostly snap ...

Re: Ixo Daunltess Opinions

That's interesting, explains why the Enterprise aircraft were painted with larger insignia, on the other hand doing that caused maybe large enough red areas to confuse it with a meatball. :shock:

Guess the Lexington didn't get to it before she went down with many, but not all of her planes.

Re: Ixo Daunltess Opinions

I find it odd that some Navy aircraft early 1942 had a large star on the fuselage nearer the rear cockpit, while others had it near the tail. All the Lexington aircraft, Devastators, Dauntless, and Wildcat I do believe were with the little tail insignia. I think the pic shows where they overpainted ...

Re: USAF smear campaign against A-10

They can't just give them to the Army because of a stupid rule made after WWII separating the forces.
They are ones who really need them and could loose lives when they are gone.
Remember the USAAF? :?

The Air Force can stick to their Nintendo warfare.

Re: Current 1/32 kit builds

That's good to know, thanks. Would work on not only camouflage patterns but the uneven pattern between the grey undersides and OD topsides of particularly WWII transport aircraft that has the series of soft peaks and valleys the length of the aircraft. Also a softer edge between colors if sprayed on.

Interesting. I just saw a BBC segment on how Dr. Mengle liked to experiment on twins and some of the survivors stories.

Re: Current 1/32 kit builds

Nice work on the armor and Hurricane. I especially like the grey Panzer and Tiger. 8) On the Hurricane you are using modeling clay to separate the colors prior to painting the next. It's been a while since I built any model, but this is a novel thing and solves a lot of tedious masking it would seem...

And it's the early model B-25B and the Doolittle plane. I have the Corgi "Ruptured Duck" Tokyo Raider but if this a better example than a Corgi I'll get it. The B-25 is one of Corgi's better efforts yet it's an older tooling so it suffers from a few of their flaws. Wonder if it will be better than a...

Too bad. There was some but they never really got heavily into the diecast scene after the fall of 21stC. They were the place to get exclusive 1:18 aircraft. They turned out quite a few.

Always liked the Dinah. Closest to a pre-built I have is the tiny F-Toys 1:144.

Sure would like one in 1:72 diecast, but it's not likely.

Curious, both FOV and 21st Century Toys made the 75mm M4 and both made the British Firefly, but neither has made the Easy 8, or M4A3E8.
