  1. You could always swing by the shop. https://www.return2kitform.com/
  2. Good Evening Folks! We have opened our first pre order for John's kit from back in the day (I am not sure if this ever got a re release after 2007). 10 orders are needed to kick this off ( we have 4 so far) and the kit comes with water slide decals and colour instructions. If we get the number the kits should be ready in late September. Send me a PM (or just comment below) if you are interested Kit Price AUD$200 + Shipping Thanks to John Moscato for letting me use his images 😉 Cheers, Brett
  3. John I can send you anything you need as I have a bunch of YF-21/22 kits on the shelf any other bits you might need.
  4. Thanks for the comparison images @tekering! It looks like the Hasegawa is too small - much like the Bandai.
  5. @tekering congratulations on a great build and a well deserved win in the MHM competition. You really have made that kit shine andnitnis great to see one built! -BT
  6. My guess is that this has been in the works for a while has retains the early kit designation. Hasegawa only have a small staff and have been kept busy with the Delta kits, Mechatro, MaK and retro anime releases too. I'd hesitantly guess that for whatever reason the GPB made it to the top of the list. Hasegawa pay attention to toy releases so perhaps they were hoping to cash in on the hype around Bandai DX GBP release for those that aren't into toys or don't have the spare cash.
  7. Anyone here entering in MHM's inaugural competition?
  8. @peter There is sooo much 90's design in that runabout! @MechTech that's not rust. It is supposed to be grey paint chiiped and peeling to reveal the orange underneath. The slat was salvaged from VT-102 after it was recovered from the ruins of South Ataria island post fold incident. Great pliers by the way your engineering skills are awesome!
  9. Nice work @MechTech So much neat custom work. Well after nearly nine months this thing is nearing the end of it's time on the workbench: Looks like this will be the only build for this year!
  10. My CF VF-1A has a custom Tamiya mix of XF-66 Light Grey/XF-14 JA Grey/XF-26 Deep Green in a 2:1:1 ratio:
  11. Yeah it has been a while. I asked HLJ for an advance copy (or at least just the canopy) so that I could bring a canopy mask set to market early. The staff had to look up the kit as they had never heard of it!
  12. It would have been nice if they threw in the AAM-1s from the weapon set just for something different.
  13. Thanks @Bolt. We just listed our first batch of 1/72 valks. It will be interesting to see hownthings pan out. - Brett
  14. Well done mate! You know I never noticed thisebtwo blacknsteipes on the side of then pod before. I might have to add them to my build.
  15. Haha thanks mate. Yeah we threw that in as a bit if a joke. Like I said it is pretty rough at the moment but we will fix it up.as we go along. As for what is next? We llnwe have the Tomahawk and Phalanx kits coming and the VE/VT-1 canopy masks as well.
  16. G'day blokes, I just thought I would let you guys know that we have website now: https://www.return2kitform.com/ It is pretty basic for now but as we learn it will grow. Into what I don't know but for now it is hosting our ecommerce site. The shelves are a bit bare as we wait for our first shipment of kits from overseas but will expand over time. As always feedback is welcome! Cheers, Brett
  17. Pretty sure it is this months issue. I can't take credit for the photo as a mate of mine sent it when he saw the build. He's a member of MW but doesn't come here often.
  18. Looks more.likely than you think since your fantastic build ended up in FSM. Hiding light under a bushel Arbit? Congrats man! - Brett
  19. Is there much of a demand for aftermarket decals? The printing firm I use does a great job (Custom Hobby Decals out of Australia) but the print run would have to be at least 2) sheets to make it worth while. - Brett
  20. Considering how much after market decals cost you could always think of it that way. 1800JPY is about AUD$23 which is about right for a decal sheet. Then just get yourself a donor F-14 kit and you are good to go. -Brett
  21. Thanks Dobber. Finishing is a real time sink but it is worth it! -Brett
  22. Man there are so many good builds here. All I have is this poor half painted Norbert in 1/72 scale. I am a bit time poor these days but he is getting there. - Brett
  23. BTW these will be reissued soon. Limited to an20 kit run. The molds are almost ready and the decals arrived the other day. -Brett
