I opened up the decals to look through them and I'm really impressed with the detail/history/goodies that come with these.  I've never heard of these before - hope they work as well as they are packaged.  Thought I'd share - 

 

And this is the icing :)

Thanks,

John

I forgot I ordered these - I like pilots in my planes, especially the ones in flight :)

Nice detail - this is the modern US Navy pilot

Thanks,

John

Cool looking figures Kdog. I stink at figures so I steer away from 'em.

Bish, how did I miss your score mate! I'm keen on all of them.

Here is what I got the past few days.

A late arriving Christmas gift from a friend.

One of favorite biplanes. Seems like the only manufacturer of it 1/72. Starfighter makes American decals, resin engine, cowl and interior for it.

And here it is.. The Bruno arrived!

I got this the other day.

I normally don't buy "fake" paper panzers (the kind that are just dreamed up for video games and such), but this one caught my fancy.  It is supposedly based off the E60 series of tanks.  I had read about the E10, E25, E50, E75, and E100 as actual planned vehicles, but never the E60.  Nevertheless, it looks really cool to my eyes, with its low silhouette and enormous hull.

The kit, by Model Collect, looks to be pretty decently molded with only a bit of flash here and there.  But the real proof is in the pudding, so after a closer look, it was noticed that the kit is kind of a generic mish-mash, designed to accomodate other tank kits - Model Collect makes a bunch.  A lot of the OVM tools and fittings are not used on this kit, which is surprising.  BUT, since they are on the sprues, I will add as many as possible to my model.

But the real question is - why is most of the text on the box in Japanese?  I am aware that Japanese kanji is based on Chinese, but there is Japanese katakana (phonetic alphabet versus idiogram) as well.

Oh, and this came in as well:

Super thrilled that we finally have a high quality injection molded kit of this (kinda) sleek aircraft.

“Ya ya ya, unicorn papoi!”
