    M1A2 Alternative

    Well maybe someone else is looking for one still. I'm sure if you ordered one or two anyway, it won't take long to sell them. I hope you understand. I didn't want to risk your supplier not having any and the one that Spitfire told me about was there in hand. So I jumped on it. I truly do...

    M1A2 Alternative

    I would love if you could help me out in obtaining the Dragon 3536 if it is readily available. I cannot seem to find it and it appears to be out of stock everywhere I look even at Elm City Hobbies. Perhaps you can hook me up? But let's say that the Dragon Abrams never even existed. What...

    M1A2 Alternative

    I have scoured the internet for weeks on end looking for a DML Dragon M1A2 Abrams SEP (3536) model. While I can find a M1A2 AIM (3535), what is the real difference in that kit and what non-dragon brand would be the closest quality kit available today? Tamyia? Italeri? I also want a kit...

    Aftermarket highly detailed Cockpit for Revel 1/48 F-14 Tomcat

    The kit I Have is for the 14A, but I am converting it to the D version. It is a VF-142 squadron which did fly the D model as well but I am going to make it a VF-31 squadron Like I posted above, I have found PE sets to convert it to a D version and resin seats, etc.

    Aftermarket highly detailed Cockpit for Revel 1/48 F-14 Tomcat

    After hours of searching etc the interwebs, I have found the Eduards detail kit for the revell 1/48 which includes a pretty decent photoetch for the cockpit. I also found the aires ejection seats for the revell 1/48. So I think at this point, it is going the most I can get for this kit. It...
