Re: ~1/72 Last Jedi Tie Silencer from Hasbro

I think you have the Revell kit Tman? I posted about the Hasbro version which only needs to have the wings snapped on and as far as I know, has no light/sound features. Both are virtually the same size though, afik. The Revell kit looks good; I may pick it up instead of the Hasbro one.

~1/72 Last Jedi Tie Silencer from Hasbro

Hasbro is releasing a 10 inch long Tie Silencer toy/model. The 'real' thing is around 57 feet and change long so toy works out to be 1/70 scale. For $13 doesn't look too bad. Not sure i'm sold on the design, but I guess it could be viewed as an evolution of the tie interceptor...only larger. I am su...

Re: where to put swastikas on go-229

is it certain that the NASM 229 hasn't had the swastikas added after the war? They look much fresher and less worn than the rest of the paint job. Is there an actual wartime photo of either of the completed 229s with swastikas on them? Here are a couple of wartime photos of other Horton designs with...

where to put swastikas on go-229

i'm going to be making a kit of one of these soon and have been pondering the paint scheme. The most usual place I see for the swastikas is right at the pointy rear of the wing, side by side. However, I think that looks dumb plus, it would be nice to put stripes in that area, like this: https://c1.s...

Question for experienced modellers re: resin kits

I have a reasonable amount of experience building plastic model kits in my life, but virtually none building resin kits. I am seriously considering getting the Anigrand 1/72 C-5 Galaxy kit. So, my question is, given my experience, do you think I would be able to complete the kit? I usually use super...

Re: A 1:72nd Scale Chinese TU-16 Arrives

thanks for the review, Epap. Looks to be a decent effort, though the price is somewhat stiff (about $250US shipped). The K version of the H-6 was one developed specifically by the Chinese, with most notably, modifications to the nose and tail gunner areas. I''m not sure there is a direct Soviet/Russ...

Re: Luft X 1/72 German Haunebu I Display Model

I was just looking at the Mule link and I think this offering by Luft-X is going to be a built up model kit, which is good. It will most likely be the Wave Haunebu which is also 8 x 8 inches (it's the smaller of the two model kits available...the other is quite a bit larger even though they are both...

Re: Luft X 1/72 German Haunebu I Display Model

there are currently two 1/72 model kits of the Haunebu available and now the Luft X prebuilt is coming. I'm hoping Luft X is offering a built up version of one of the existing plastic kits, as it will probably be better quality than anything Luft X create on their own.

From Kinetic models. 1/72 C-17. Injection molded kit with decals and injection molded clear parts. No vacuform. No idea on price. Due for release sometime this year. Pretty cool.

thanks HW.....I see there are a few different star destroyers available....I gather the 8 inch one is the Imperial Class and that's the one that's in the original trilogy movies?

I have a Samantha Peyton P-38 I've been selling for parts. I gather the part you need is the clear flip up roof for the middle section?

Re: Wings of the Great War 1/72 planes

this series is continuing to pump out new models, so they must be selling well, despite their drawbacks. I've been tempted many times but so far have just bought one, the W29, which has no rigging. I may get another and see how hard it is to remove the rigging. It would be a fairly simple matter to ...

Suggestions for cargo load in A400M

i'm about to build the Revell A400m and was wondering what would be a good cargo for it. I haven't decided on livery yet, so could be French, german or British.

I was thinking maybe a helicopter or perhaps an APC of some type.

Suggestions?
