  1. Max Factory 1/20(!) VF-1S/A Hikaru

    indeed... I'm hoping they release fighter-mode or at least a non-gerwalk Strike as stand-alone kits... if we're going to have to buy a $400 dollar kit and end up leaving large volumes of plastic in the box, no matter how we assemble it, this'll be a "wait 'till a great deal pops up" item for me...
  2. Bandai DX VF-31

    So it may really be that stock is slow/limited because Bandai may be encountering/dealing with the clear-coat [or some other] QC issue? Fascinating... the '31A canopies are clearer tint like the '31F, while the J and C are more opaque, are they not? I have a '31C, so I can vouch for it being foggy and wanting a canopy replacement... maybe the foggy canopies are also a clear-coating issue... Also: what Kind of pod comes with a '31A? same as the rest [drone charger thingy/mounting the big gun]? or is it different?
  3. What will Hasegawa do next?

    Ah well, we can't miss out on something that never existed I guess, eh?... best of both worlds if they release delta platoon in supers, and armours, then put out just the packs.
  4. What will Hasegawa do next?

    nah, I'll take some strike and armoured packs, then they can repop the '31A again. Besides, I'm collecting the Tenjin artbooks, so I'll get the boxart either way!lol
  5. Wave 1/72 VF-4 lightning

    Why would one necessarily lower the nose for a cat shot? plenty of evidence indicates that isn't the only way: the F-5 extends it's nosegear for takeoffs, leaving it nose-high when starting it's roll [I'm just learning her in DCS, I never knew the F-5 did that until last weekend...]. the Buccaneer gets launched nose-up, and so did the RN's Phantoms... for comparrison: I think she'll sit just fine for a cat-shot, if the above press-photo of the kit is accurate. [rear ventral fins are an obvious issue] EDIT: so I posted all that, then realised immediately: A) the Phantom didn't use a shuttle-cat B) that you'd compress the nose-gear with a US-style shuttle launcher for the strongest possible configuration during all that stress... but I stand by my "a nose-high attitude is fine" statement... lol the F-4 took off nose-high, so the VF-4 should too!
  6. What will Hasegawa do next?

    please release armoured and/or super packs as separate items in future Hasegawa, for me? While you're at it, how about some more Macross weapons and pylons in general! Take My Money!!! Or at least have the heart to include multiple head options in the Super/Armoured kits @KOG Water Dragon just mentioned? I'm not buying all of Delta platoon again just to get some superpacks... but if they released a Armoured/Super-31A...
  7. Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    "An F-22A Raptor belonging to Elmendorf Air Force Base's 3rd Wing was involved in a major mishap this weekend. Details remain sketchy and are likely to change, but a source told The War Zone that the jet may have retracted its gear too early during takeoff, with the aircraft slamming back down on the runway at relatively high speed and skidding its way to a stop. Thankfully the pilot was able to egress from the aircraft without major injuries." -- Link Well... that explains the crowd of people on the left of the pic who all look like they're enjoying the pilot's pain entirely too much... lol on a more serious note, I'm not sure how much that'll cost, but it's going to be a full replacement of all the underside doors... I hope he didn't bend the airframe... ...
  8. Whats next for Arcadia?

    I'm only buying the '29 if it's the "last battle" version with canards... I have plenty of mig-29's otherwise... .... but Shin's tomcat in 1/60... they'd get me with that one for sure!

    Semper Fi Gunny!
  10. [R.I.P] Milos Forman

    I doubt there will ever be a better [if historically inaccurate] movie about Mozart than Amadeus... Truly, a loss for cinema in general.
  11. That's what I mean: EDIT: what I think NZEOD meant was that the notch should be at 22.1mm I'll stop here though, as any further interpretation on my part would be purely that.
  12. I think he means that the line measuring 22.1mm should not proceed all the way to the end of the arm [where it does], but in the middle of the slot for the pin [ie: it should terminate at the same point you are referencing for your 40.4mm measurement] Like this I think:
  13. Wave 1/72 VF-4 lightning

    OH! She's Bronze... I feel foolish... but now I'm looking forward to painting it even more! Very pretty, well done Luftwaffe!
  14. Wave 1/72 VF-4 lightning

    my 4-ship is now in hand... these look to be impressive little kits... plans: Max, Milia, SVMF-214 “Black Sheep”, and SMVF(AW)-224 "Bengals" but with some direct inspiration from this Eurofighter...
