For those modellers who need more AV-8A Harriers in "Aficionado scale", the awesome ex-ESCI AV-8A is being re-released.













Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

The new tool Airfix GR1 is a better option though

Ah, but you have to replace the vertical tail to model late Spanish aircraft or the Thai aircraft.  Italieri appears to give both those options.

Evan, you are correct in that Italeri provides both types of vertical tails.

Dear Friends, we are proud to show you the test and assembly pictures of our new incoming 1:72 scale model kit dedicated to the STOVL fighter F-35B Lightning II. The new scale model kit will be characterised by the highest level of quality and details (100% new moulds) and it will be released in the next weeks.

Note: the RAM panels appear to be way too thick.

Yes, way too thick.  You really don't want those edge effects that thickness would produce on a real aircraft.

I sent Italeri an email saying they would have a winner if they lose all those raised RAM lines. I attached a couple of photos of the one I took pictures of down in Yuma which show the aircraft is as smooth as smooth.

Their F-35A is also covered in these raised line too, I started sanding them off but gave up after a while. Going to use it as a donor on another F-35 project I'm working on.

The Phantom is apparently the Fujimi kit re-boxed (or so it's being said on other forums)

Not surprised. We don't need another FG.1 mold.
