I tend to stick to the Tamiya and Hasegawa kits too. I still haven't built a Trumpeter kit, although there are plenty of their's that I would like to build. I usually read through the reviews too, to find out what is best avoided. I don't mind having to do a bit of work fixing crappers up, but at the end of the day it's the painting and weathering that I look forward to the most and would rather spend my time on that part than the building.

So what was the fit like? is it superior ive now heard good and average things i.e. the price does not indicate better fit/quality.

And how about Meng? there are a few Meng aircraft out there....i also like the word Meng,...Meng...

see i found the liquid putty i have (ok its tamyia and not mr surfacer) laughs at my attempts to remove it with Iso, even only after 20 minutes... thats why i was intrigued to learn about the lacquer thinner,

Have not build a Meng aircraft kit but have 1 in the stash and it looks to be as nice as their armour kits.
As nice as "Meh ng" is nice to say apparently as they are a Chinese company it is pronounced Mung "Muh ng"

Was really happy with it, the UH-1Y had a small gap to fill but a lot of wide fuselage helicopters have the same issue, sometimes I think the interior is just a little bit too big, but if fit isn't a perfect fit then you get a gap
Would definitely buy again though

I decided towards the end of last year that I'm going to give myself a break and only build 'Japanese' manufactured kits in 2016 for the most part. I'm sure other stuff will crop up but I boxed all my older Airfix and Heller stuff up to prevent temptation.

I like the oldies but I also like straightforward builds.

Cheers
John

DML armour usually requires no filler, but my scratch building sure does.
