Quote from: strobez on September 29, 2016, 07:52:53 AMThis is my first real post here, but I was quite happy to see people working on models that are strictly taken from real life. I'm working on a project based on the the Area 88 manga from Kaoru Shintani, but with a twist. Not only am I planning to build out the numerous planes featured in the story, I'm also doing a WWII "reimagined" concept. So each of the planes will be decked out using the Area 88 colours markings.A couple of examples I'm currently working on... Shin Kazama's F-8E Crusader (complete with flaming unicorn crest) side-by-side a F4U-1 Corsair with the same colouring/markings. I chose the Corsair as a "direct ancestor" of the Crusader, seeing as how they're both built by Vaught. I'm also doing a Gary MacBurn Mig-21 PFM (yellow/red) as a MiG-3. I'm having a lot of fun coming up with direct and/or spiritually connected planes for each of the projects. I've got a couple albums going at stalemates, but I'll post pics here if anyone's interested.

Academy (obviously), Hasegawa and Tamiya are particularly well represented here in Seoul. Trumpeter/Hobby Boss are pretty good - even though I had to resort to eBay from Beijing for both my Trumpeter F-105D Thunderchief and Hobby Boss MiG-3 kits. Anything non-Asian in origin (Italeri/Zevzda/Airfix/Revell/etc.) is nothing to write home about.
