After the Corsair, I wanted a straightforward, not too involved build to end the year. I was really enjoying 1/32 props, and was looking for a low parts count and something that would fit well. Hasegawa’s Kurfurst fit the bill on that point. Overall though, this was a “were they even trying?”.
Tamiya’s big Corsair has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the best, if not the best, plastic model kits ever created. There’s little point in me doing a review of the sprues or construction, so I’m just going to walk you through my approach to painting it.
Back when I first opened the box and wrote that nice, optimistic review of the sprues, I was concerned that some of Tarangus’ design choices could prove problematic.
The Viggen was an absolute pain of a build, and every problem could and should have been fixed before they even cut the moulds.
Since the announcement that Wingnut Wings’ first effort outside of their typical First World War subject matter will be a 1/32 scale Lancaster, I’ve heard a lot of people get very excited about it. I’ve also heard a few ask whether this move makes sense for the company and whether we can expect to see any further kits from later eras.
In this article, I’m going to show why this makes business sense, and what this might mean for the future.
It’s time to rethink my opinion of Trumpeter. This little frigate is a really nice build.
Back around the turn of the millennium, I loved the PC flight sim Comanche 3. This took you into the world of a helicopter that blended stealth and firepower, having to figure out the best way to approach various mission profiles. It was great fun, and it made me really like the RAH-66 Comanche.
