Re: Finally got an Arrow!

Nice addition Aferg, and almost a must have for any Canadian collector. I picked up the day glo orange one myself, which was the first release, back when they were first available. Like the looks better than the all white, and went through the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum to purchase online. Fi...

JJ stuff is very nice, but don't have any myself. Looks like they are worth the price, but not for the "average" collector.

Went for $10,600.

So Metfish must be somewhat happy. A nice chunk of cash, plus he will have two rooms in his house back. :lol:

And so he should have been. Good riddance.

Glad that he was held accountable for his comments, which I am sure were an embarressment to the USAF.

Haven't done the math, but seems somewhat reasonable, given what you are getting. Especially as you don't have to pay for USPS shipping. Can you imagine what almost 100 1/18 models would cost to ship. :shock: Going to be a tough sell to do in one lot, but the U Haul shipping makes it quite attractiv...

Re: Yat Ming 1/72 X-32 JSF

Ghastly looking X plane, and an embarrassment for Boeing, I would think.

For a cheap, and unusual model, it doesn't look too bad though.

Those interested in X planes might be keen on this one.

Re: 1/18 Custom Midway Avenger

Excellent weathered and damaged Avenger, Jnewboy. A great buy for the price. 8)

And the cockpit detail is quite amazing.

The seller put a lot of time and effort into this model, and you reaped the benefits.

Very good and informative post, Tman. Pretty much agree with all of your points, but everyone has their own opinion. In regards to the Avenger. I love both of mine, and to solve the wing sag, I use part of a toothpick wedged in the gap on the underside of the wing. A little trial and error, and pres...

That is quite a story, Tman. :shock:

To actually email, and berate one of their long term customers, is totally unacceptable, and sounds like desperation.

Again, sad to see them go from one of the best online retailers, to hearing about acts like this.

Monogram aren't bad, but certainly not up to Tamiya or Hasegawa in quality, or price for that matter.

Looks better than the Corgi diecast version, but it is a plastic kit, and not diecast model, so it should be.

Re: Is Bad Cat about to give up the ghost...?

Think it is sad to see, as they really did a lot for 1/18.

But Bad Cat Rob really got a lot of people angry, and am sure that also probably affected his business a bit.

End of an era, at least in 1/18.
