So with Tamiya supposedly releasing a two-seater IL-2 soon, it would be a hoot to build one up in USAF SEA colors.
Stiff upper lip when verbally talking about the kit to another modeller:  Yep it's the Tamiya kit.  Then watch the eyes of the listener closely as either a spark of humor or shock of waste sets in.

But thanks to Jeffry via Alvis, a beautiful single seat IL-2 resides already in Ye Proper Stasche.

Perhaps a "warbird" IL-2 with an Allison engine the same as some of those 'new build" Yaks out there?

Definitely a nice surprise and about damned time too.  Prior to this there was a vacuum-formed plastic kit and a couple of resin kits in 1:35th scale.

Would be nice to see an electronics shelter for that Gama Goat so you can model the various support vehicles.

Wish they'd sell the ALE-50 decoys from their F-16C/D kits a la carte... or put 'em in the next Weapons Set if there ever IS another.

The Gama Goat is a lot cheaper than I'd expected - about $30 with shipping from Lucky Model: http://www.luckymodel.com/scale.aspx?item_no=TA%2035330

It doesn't look like the driver is wearing any ear protection, though...

I didn't think Tamiya did 1/72 planes anymore (not counting the Italeri re-pops), but here is this:

"Once upon a time", some 50 years ago, Tamiya did a number of basic 1/72 aircraft.  I've got a couple of their J7W1 kits (both domestic and export boxings - same art work but a distinct difference in choice of background colors).  For a long time, 'til Hasegawa did modern ones, theses were the only 1/72 J7W1 kits available.

I wish Tamiya'd stop trying to #@&%ing motorize everything! :icon_twisted:

Every time they do that they screw with the dimensions of the subject & the fit of the parts & they leave those bloody annoying voids under & around the track guards (often so that the electric motors get airflow to cool them.

Annoying! >:D

Tamiya 1/32 De Havilland Mosquito FB Mk. VI pre-orders being taken by HLJ, and others:
http://www.hlj.com/product/TAM60326/Air

Based on info from folk in the know this kit will blow the new HK out of the water, especially
as the HK evidently has a number of serious errors.
