I figured people could say what they have bought recently.....


Today I got myself an italeri Lockheed Hudson 1:72 with 2 RAAF options

The Interior detail is fantastic and the panel line are recessed......


Im not sure if its a reboxed job or no tooling, whatever its aces.

Secondly I bought a ICM MkVIII spitfire in 1:48 scale...


For something different it comes with US markings as a nice surprise I found it has cannons than can be revealed and a complete merline with framework for display...

I'll be quiet now:lol:

Please post away anything you have recently got kit or model wise......
 
work,work Heinz. :lol: I'll be waiting for pics of your effords.
I've seen the Hudson model, it is realy good quality model.As far as ICM Spit model is concerned you will have to work on it very hard.Putty,putty and once again putty.Besides as memory serves ,the fuselage is about 2mm longer than it should be,The wings have improper trailing edge in a shape, the engine cowling at the top of fuselage is too flat.Let's me see ,there are all main problems probably you will come across.

My recent purchases: Westland Whirlwind 1:72 scale BILEK model,FW 190 D9 also the same firm and in the same scale and SU-22M4 BILEK/Italeri 1:72 scale model.And in the end, BF 109F-4 ICM 1:48 scale model.

Unfortunately, yes.I don't know how the main parts and details of your model look like but early kits had many collapsed areas on all of them.I've heard that ICM used a new plastic to make them and as a result the holes have become smaller and less viisible.If your model is a later kit it can be better quality.If not,the putty is needed to make the surfaces of the model smooth.Mostly you will have to use this at the top of wings on both upper and lower surfaces, the lower surface of the fuselage especially at the area where the wing is connected with the fuselage and at the upper area of wing-fuselage transition .Please also, pay your attention to the shape of an air intake to an engine carburettor,it is much more fitted to MKV than to the MK IX.So the new tube of Tamiya putty can come in handy.:lol:

Also please excuse my typos in the first post.... discraceful.......:oops:

Don't worry about these.The English is not my native language so I have to make many mistakes and I reflect on this if my English is understandable for all mates there.
 
Question.

Whats the best online model supplier in America I guess (cause of the shipping) The nearest quality hobby shop to me is in Corvallis Or (Trumps Hobbies) which is about 100 miles away.

I get most of my models, paints, and other modeling supplies from Tower Hobbies (http://www2.towerhobbies.com/listings/cat-s.html). The selection is good and the shipping costs are reasonable and predictable. The shipping cost also includes tracking, which I find rather enjoyable.

I use Tower Hobbies also. great selection. especially for RC stuff. I am working on a 36" RC boat off and on. I have all I need to get it into the water and run it. Its a scale 1950/60s Coast Guard Utility that I am converting to a commercial crab boat and will also fit out as a Salmon trawler. Its kinda neat, because there are quite a few of these hull conversions in the Newport OR. fishing fleet. I just haven't made up my mind which boat to emulate.
