  1. Yellow 12 of JG 300 - Nov. 1944 JG300 is known to be the gaggle of FW 190's that Chuck Yeager tangled with in Nov. 1944. Going to have to build that one to display next to my 1/32 P-51D Glamorous Glenn III.
  2. LOL, So we put Christmas Trump and Hannibal together for a diorama, ingenious
  3. Even the Aires resin tub just doesn't look right, IP seems just to far forward when compared to reference photos, kind of like the pilot has to look down a tunnel to view the IP. The Eagle Edition set appears to have it right and does not have that tunnel effect when viewing the IP. KJ
  4. We really do need a new tool Fw 190 D series in 1/32. The Hasegawa kit is a good kit, but it has really been left behind in comparison to the new 1/32 kits. Most kit manufacturers produce what sells, and as many yawn when a new 109, Spitfire, Mustang, etc., is released, they do sell. I always thought Tamiya might be tempted to produce a 190D-9, but nothing yet, so just have to spend the money to buy the extra stuff for the Hasegawa kit. KJ
  5. Some progress, decided to use the Eagle Editions cockpit which of course requires lots of cutting, scraping, sanding to make the kit fit the tub. I kicked around the idea of just doing some detailing to the kit cockpit, also did some dry-fits of the AIres resin offering for the D-9, and in the end, the Eagle set was just so far superior in terms of detail and scale that it's going in. And of course, adding more rivets KJ
  6. And just like that, a 1/32 3-D printed EZ 42 gun sight.
  7. I am kind of thinking something German for the Big T's next release, they have not done a 109, 190 or 262 in the new 1/32 line yet.
  8. Isn't about that time that Tamiya hits the market with their next 1/32 Aircraft release?
  9. I agree, I have not built a 1/35 armor kit in years, but I did have to breakdown and order the Rye Field Panther G from Sprue Brothers. Just to nice of a kit to pass up on even if it does sit on my kit shelves. Box art is excellent to! KJ
  10. Does anyone on the forum know if the late war German Revi EZ 42 Gyro gun sight has been produced by one of the kit manufactures or resin aftermarket producers in 1/32 scale? Looking for one for my next Fw 190D-9 project, but I may have to end up scratch building one. Thanks, KJ
  11. The 1/32 Hasegawa or Revell kits are both good and still hold their own up against the kits produced with today's technology. My only gripe is that surface rivets are not present on these kits, in 1/32 scale that really should have been there. Kirk
