Took a punt on one of these kits a few weeks back. An aftermarket cockpit and wheels look to be in order some time in the future. Beautiful decal sheet but not the options I want to put on it. It certainly occupies a fair chunk of real estate.
Steve that's going to be a 'vast' build, good luck sir.
Been chatting with a modelling buddy from Brazil recently and discussing potential Luftwaffe builds. I was very impressed with an 1:48 ICM Hs126 he recently finished and seriously considered investing in one... in the end and after a shed-load of reading reviews and watching YT builds, I decided to buy this instead:
Kit schemes are all 70/71/65 with variations in yellow theatre marks, I also have a Kagero sheet with a beautiful North Africa scheme so as yet... undecided. There's so much quality in the (sturdy) ICM box that the only AM needed is a set of belts and masks which I've bought. This'll be my BIG Spring project like the BAC Lightning was last year.
Cheers Corran and Ian. I have to agree that ICM are turning out some really nice kits these days and I've purchased accordingly. I have the Mig-25 RBT in 1-72 and 1-48 scales and they look good. Have still to acquire any of their Ju88 kits but will look forward to your build Ian.
Can't remember who it was that posted these cutting guides but they looked interesting so I thought I'd get some, along with yet another book on modelling and some sanding pads.
The sanding pads are by the same company that makes the cutting guides and I have some of their other pads which I just love to use.
The book is good, not quite what I thought it would be as it deals primarly with building the miniart buildings, it is still a good reference guide which I'm sure I'll be using at some point as I have a number of these buildings in the stash.
