    Very nice! Perhaps a gentle and constructive criticism would be to put a flat coat on your tires? :toothy5: By the way I have been watching closely your builds as you too seem to enjoy my favorite scale. :cool:

    Yeah I put a flat coat on my latest model. I like 1:72. I will be building most planes of that scale.

    Thanks everyone! I like 1:72's because I can fit more of them on my shelves plus they are cheaper and you don't use as many materials to build them.

    Have you guys built 1:72 Hobby Boss kits yet? They are made very well. I was surprised how thick and detailed the plastic was. Everything fits tight and secure too. $10.00 kit and worth every penny. I just wish the company made more of a variety of planes.

    Me too.

    I like Hobbyboss kits. They're not the end all to end all, but they are very nice little kits for the money....

    Never made any, but they do look nice nice in the box. Quality seems to be on par with new tool Revell and Hasegawa kits.
