Take it easy on the greedometer matey not all of us are kid free and wallet full, you'll awake the green eyed monster
I thought that was the whole point of this thread.
Latest ones, Webby needs to stop selling kits I've been hunting for for ages at really good prices.
First one, the bandai 1/35 M61a5 tank. This thing is HUGE, I knew it was big but not quite this big, it makes the same scale abrams look like a light tank (this is probably half again bigger than an abrams). This sucker reminds me a lot of the mammoth tank from Command and Conquer (I did find a couple of builds where people had used it for a base to make a mammoth tank). Also got the Mig Antiskid paste for this and all my other tanks that don't have antiskid on them already.
Decals for my Su35 I got a little while back, it was only when it arrived that I found it had the original boxing's decals in it still for the eggplant scheme. So if anyone ever needs markings for a Su35 or any flanker really then let me know.
Got these to go with either of my 1/32 f16d/i's, will need two more seats at some point but got 2 sets of the static wicks for the wings and horizontal stabs.
Don't often post in this thread unless it's something I'm really enthused about, and I'm VERY enthused about this. Won't be able to touch it for a while because of the impending house-move, but when it does hit the bench, it will be alongside the Hasegawa B-26 Marauder - a double twins build !!
Trying to work more on completion over perfection.

First reaction.. any doubts they are the same basis as Tamiya acrylics are removed by the distinctive smell! That said they seem like they may adhere better.
Seem very densely pigmented, covered with a brush straight onto plastic, will do some airbrush tests later today.
Dunkelgrau is dark, kind of like the Tamiya german grey but without the blue cast, and dead matt.
I look forward to the test results, these have interested me since release but I have managed to resist as I have a lot of paint already and dont want to get dragged down the well of another range with Real Color, Mission, MRP, The different Hataka's etc etc it could get very expensive.
Stand aside caffine, this is a job for alcohol.

Will make a start on this once I have finished the Skyhawk. Waiting for the c/card to clear so I can order the Aires gear bay, Master Models static dischargers and possibly the Wheeliant weighted wheels set. Undecided whether I'll get an aftermarket ejection seat as I might put the pilot figure in the pit.
I just got a couple of sets of those static wicks for my f-16's also, the master model stuff is always absolutely superb. I didn't bother with the gear bays though, instead getting seats and have just ordered a set of bulged wheels for the IDF Sufa and some quickboost gun barrel ends (has 2 in the pack so one for each f-16). Have seen others do some amazing stuff with the aires bay and I can't wait to see what you do with it.
