ive seen on theyre facebook page that they are releasing a 1/72 Top Gun set, with Maverick's F-14A and Jester/Viper's A-4 Skyhawk  :mellow:

... and young Kelly Mcgillis?

The line forms behind me, folks - in fact, nope - not sharing.  :wub:


Any chance I can get my hands on Mavericks Kawasaki GPz900R instead :wub:?

All yours, mate. Prefer the two-legged to the two-wheeled, myself.  :thumbsup:

Back then maybe --- nowadays ---- hmm!

True - but then we were talking about the younger version. Besides, I was a bit prettier in those days myself... for a given value of... ;D

I asked over at ARC - the site I trust for US-related subject advice - how accurate the decals look and the answers were not positive. Apparently other aftermarket sheets do it better.

You mean to say they don't take your breath away?

I find it very hard to believe Academy would make a mistake like that he said sarcastically...

Has a life outside of What-If & wishes it would stop interfering!

1/72 Junkers JU-86 E-1/E-2


Oh!  lovely memories

I built one of those as a Small Thing, I had lusted after it for months on the shelf of the local Toy Master store and lo! it appeared in my Christmas sack.

That along with the Airfix Bv 141 and Bf 109E ( a Boys' Brigade prize! ) constituted my Luftwaffe element.

The Portuguese scheme looks good.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Looks like a former Italian aircraft, due to the paint scheme and colors?
