This is very exciting and a proud moment for Son and Dad!  It's great to know that the younger generation still has interest in things modelingwise.  And, the apple never falls far from the tree, they say  ;)

Best regards,

Very nice, CH, love every part about it, especially that great paintwork.  And . . . . the extended wings look exceptionally well done  :thumbsup:

Best regards,

Great concept and build, it really looks the part.  I'm glad for the forces involved at the time that this DIDN'T happen :thumbsup:

Best regards,

I see Amodel do both versions of the Il-40

Having thoughts about picking out one of my Amodel kits and building it just to see what all the hype is about......   seems like everyone says they're crap so I want to see for myself.

Absolutely the way to do it  :thumbsup: Make your own mind up. I've been warned off a couple of manufacturers in the past (or specific kits) and yet when I've attempted them I've found myself enjoying them. The trick is to not let them wind you up. When, and if, they start to get  :banghead: put them down for a bit

There for awhile I had convinced myself to stop reading up on kit reviews and stuff ....  "gathering intel" as I call it because it was getting frustrating always canceling things.  I think I'll try this some more and go into a few builds "blind" and do my own reckoning.  ;) :mellow:

I like the look of the Yak.
Definitely appears to be one of A Model's better kits.

Glad your back is feeling better.  Mines decided to come out in sympathy and has been giving me gyp all day.  I think it's due to twisting and lunging across the counter at work to read the post code on a customers parcel.  I'm carefull when I lift and bend but can catch myself out with things like this.  It's not bad enough to lay me up but is annoying and I am applying heat packs and looking forward to bedtime.


Funny how it works, right? You'd think something like picking up a big bag of dog food or carrying bricks around would be the source of such a thing when asking someone how they threw their back out and how they got so crippled up for 3 days. "Man you must have been lifting some big heavy stuff."  But no... it can be something like leaning over or stepping wrong. It's the sudden shift.... or whatever. I can lift a bag of grass and toss it in the dumpster if I'm careful about it... but if I brush up against a cobweb it's game over.  ;D

Rest up!! I always recommend it. It's always a great excuse to goof off, too. "Was going to clean the such and such but I'll just work on me builds instead. "  :wacko: :wacko:

That's great, thanks for the tip! I'll remember that next go round. At some points I just sort of balance it on my fingers where the main gear go but that's not very "scientific." I'm always worried that I didn't put quite enough weight inside. Ironically, this probably leads me to wasting weight by adding in more than I need.  ;D ;D

Neat, but it could take some Hinomaru? The Heller kit, I assume?

Minimalism!

I did toy with the idea of some decals but felt like being perverse ;)

And yep, the Heller kit.  :thumbsup:
