Was taken just after takeoff on cleanup, you can see the gear doors closing, they kept it on the deck until the end of the runway then went up apparently.

Just ordered a bottle of this Tamiya Lacq thinner. I love using their standard lacquer thinner and am looking forward to trying this Retarder type for applying gloss coats. Can't go wrong for $11.99 from Toyco

Will do. Some people have been saying it's similar to the Mr Levelling Thinners. Here's hoping!

Slower drying and reduces blushing in humid conditions. Modelair also have it, but $18.

If it ends up being the same as Mr Levelling thinners will be good, cause that stuff ain't cheap! To be fair I got a 400ml bottle from modelair for $35 but a cheaper option is always better. Toyco's is good for some bargains cause they always have 20% off sales.

One of the guys at my work gave me some moolah for my birthday so decided to get a kit I've been wanting for ages but Mightyape has always been sold out of.

Unsure whether I will build it as is or get a lighting kit for it but will deal with it later. Might get the pegasus at some point to to have one with all the armour plating intact.

Looks like now of the ships I'm only missing Colonial one and the Pegasus (I've got the Raptor, Viper MK2 and MK7 and the Cylon Raider).
G1, is it the newer Revell release of the Galactica? If so it is the same kit reboxed.

Yes it is and I thought it might be. You have the same collection as I do, you left out the Cylon though oh and the redone Cylon from the old series.

That is true. Apparently the Revell rebox kits have better decals than the Moebius ones, I might find something aftermarket anyway.

Don’t look at my one, it may put you off the build. Kit needs help.

Just bought this. For NZ$40 including shipping, couldn’t pass it up.

Still undecided whether to stick with the OA-4M, or go down the Kiwi Skyhawk route with this.

Funny thing is, a friend gave me mine and it had been under conversion to a TA-4K so I had to “unconvert” it back to an OA-4M. Not a bad kit, and the white metal and etch are nice, just showing it’s age.

“Old” parts are all raised panel lines and basic detail. “New” parts are recessed with nicer detail.

surprised how the twin seater "looks" a lot bigger than the single in plastic, even though the actual difference isn't that great

If you want the other 3 pylons, you’ll need to steal them from the single seater, which is where I got mine.

There is not really much aftermarket. The Aires wheel wells are nice but they are designed for the Trumpeter kit and show up the size and shape issues with the Hasegawa wells.

Hasegawa photo etch instrument panels are correct for OA-4M but not TA-4K.

Yes, couldn't find anything AM really out there OA-4M specific online. The kit decals are marginal I fear, a bit yellowed. That Avionix TA-4 cockpit would help things :) Something quite cool about these USMC M Scooters though, in the low-viz colours.

Craig, where on earth did you get the Meng F35 for $40? I would love to get one at that price if they are still available.

I succumbed and also have a Meng F-35 on it's way from the same person Craig got his from, price had gone up slightly but $48 delivered is still miles cheaper than anyone else.

I also got this from Hobbycity, I have been wanting a JASDF sea blue phantom for years.

Oohh nice Gaz. I was eyeing that up today to.

Ive been on a bit of hasegawa kit binge lately.

Picked up the Apache today from Hobby City.


Scored this Holbein airbrush off a colleague at work. He was originally going to throw it away! Haven't tested it yet, bit looks to be in pretty good Nick. Just needs a clean


The P-40 (Thanks G2!) and the p-47 I picked up a couple of weeks ago. I really love the hasegawa 32nd kits, would love to get all of there newer realeses added to the collection.

Some more goodies have turned up.





The star destroyer and death star are neat little kits, had them built in about 40min for the SD and an hour for the DS. Will paint them up and do a light wash and call them done.



With the typhoon, I can now do the Jaguar, Harrier, Tornado and Typhoon all in 41TES scheme with the white tail and red double cross.
