Pity it's the wrong scale.  Still waiting on an accurate 1/72 one.  :(


True! A pity, really, as I would like to try my hand at one of these (found by "dy031101"):







Cheers,
Moritz

One of those fuselages would look good with F-16XL wings.....

Be better off using the wings from a YF-22 or F-22, I'd reckon.

Something that will make some folks more excited than others is the announcement from AFV Club for the Norwegian Army NM-116 version of the M24 Chaffee (kit number AF35S82)

another part of Hobby Fan / AFV Club.  They have announced two Yugoslav tanks - M3 Stuart mounting a German quad-flak & same mounting the Pak-40.  Also a truck with two Drilling (triple MG) mounts.  All plastic by the looks.

Looking forward to the 6 pounder.
Not looking forward to the gazillion parts it will come with.
Somehow the 9 part Tamiya jobbie sometimes does not look that bad.

Loving the Matador, Something to pull my newly acquired Accurate Armour 5.5inch gun... so you folks can have an injection version.
