  1. 1:32 CR.42LW with German Pilots ICM Catalogue # 32022 The Fiat CR.42 Falco (Falcon) is a single seat sesquiplane fighter developed and produced by Italian aircraft manufacturer Fiat Aviazione. It served primarily in Italy's Regia Aeronautica both before and during the Second World War. The CR.42 was an evolutionary design of Fiat’s earlier CR.32 fighter, featuring a more powerful supercharged Fiat A.74R1C.38 air-cooled radial engine and aerodynamic improvements to its relatively clean exterior surfaces. The aircraft proved to be relatively agile in flight, a factor that h
  2. It's actually now allowed in the regular LSM build areas as it's a LARGE model, irrespective of scale!
  3. 1:32 DH.82a Tiger Moth ICM Catalogue # 32035 The de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth is a 1930s British biplane designed by Geoffrey de Havilland and built by the de Havilland Aircraft Company. It was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and many other operators as a primary trainer aircraft. In addition to the type's principal use for ab-initio training, the Second World War saw RAF Tiger Moths operating in other capacities, including maritime surveillance and defensive anti-invasion preparations; some aircraft were even outfitted to function as armed light bombers.

  4. 1:48 Cessna O-2A US Navy Service ICM Catalogue # 48291 The Cessna O-2 Skymaster (nicknamed "Oscar Deuce") is a military version of the Cessna 337 Super Skymaster, used for forward air control (FAC) and psychological operations (PSYOPS) by the US military between 1967 and 2010. In 1966 the United States Air Force (USAF) commissioned Cessna to build a military variant of the Skymaster to replace the O-1 Bird Dog. As with the civilian version, the Skymaster was a low-cost twin-engine piston-powered aircraft, with one engine in the nose of the aircraft and a second engine in
  5. Artscale have asked me to mention that they are wanting a US distributor. There has been talk with UMM and Sprue Brothers, but nothing has come from this, which is a real shame.
  6. I'll put the He 162 back in the attic then
  7. ASK Razor Saw holders (straight and asymmetric) Artscale See article for codes, links and prices I’m a sucker for nice tools, and one that is used most frequently in my arsenal is my trusty razor saw. I use this for all sorts of materials, including plastic, resin and now also wood. You sort of instinctively know when you need to get it from the tool rack, for those jobs where a knife would be too challenging, or cutters would be too destructive. They are great for making fine and precise cuts that remove an absolute bare minimum of material, unlike a regular saw.
  8. That looks a very cool kit. Weathering it will be fun
  9. Absolutely outstanding! Loving the finish on the black surfaces. How did you paint those?
  10. I'd rather live a quiet life than in a bitch-fest like a certain site seems to often descend into.
  11. I've never had anything borked in a WNW kit apart from some duff cabane struts on a D.VII. Those were so fragile. I must've reviewed dozens of different WNW and not seen anything like on this Mengnut kit.
  12. Glad I steered clear of this. Banana wings, bent undercarriage and wing struts and bent Spandau. Thick decals. Some of the stuff I've heard about this kit.
  13. It does, but that was more to bring reviews to the site and generate some traffic. We run on a dedicated server which uses SSD drives, plus we have software/renewal, theme and theme renewal costs, domains with privacy additions (GDPR put the price up for us with our domain host). Our little chunk of this with hosting comes out to around $300/yr. Since 2013, I've been pretty much paying the costs myself with the exception of HobbyZone who made a one-off donation to help out. Many thanks to those who have contributed. Everybody is free to use LSM without any donation, but ma
  14. If anything will tempt me to do a little plastic again, it'll be this. I've arranged for LSM to review this as soon as possible.
