Re: 1/32 Hong Kong Model B-17G (Any update on release date)

They are in my local store now- £230 so about $370 It's a huge box and the model is big - approx 3 foot wingspan and over 2 feet of fuselage. I can't work out how best to display it though, it would be a shame to hide all the detail in the fuselage, but is it an option to cut sections out of such an...

Tiger II were not fitted with night fighting equipment nor were there ever any tank versions armed with anything other than the 88mm.

Re: A HS-126 Redo

I asked if you knew what it was like, because if you were expecting something better, then the 'yellow peril' arrived, I can imagine it would have been a bit of a shocker, but at least you knew what to expect!! Not allowing for the scale effect can spoil a model - I like 1/350 Warships, and one colo...

Re: A HS-126 Redo

Well that made a difference...Another good job!

Did you know the model had the colour issues before you got it?

Also - and I'm sorry if you've been asked before - What do you use to seal the decals and paintwork?

Re: Choice your most wanted plane and helicopter for 1:18 **

I would still go with the Phantom as my first choice of aircraft, but if it had to be a prop job, then I'd currently go for another Japanese fighter - either Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate or Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien would be good here... Although my interest is with fixed-wing types, I'd agree with the Hind as a...
