:XD: I think every modeler goes through this. My problem is I have spare time, I just find it hard to choose what I wanna do since I have inbuilt kits all over the spectrum from aircraft to semi-trucks.

Which comes to the other problem.. room for it all. Cars and smaller fighter planes don't take up much room but.. some of these planes are HUGE.. like 2ft by 3ft (1:48 scale) so I dunno where I'll ever put those.. so they just sit there gathering dust cuz I hate to part with them (especially the Catalina) :XD:

Same problems here. I'm working on a smaller scale (1/72), but the basic problems remain the same. Which models? What next? And where to put it all? What to do with that third Constellation and that second DC-6B? Is there room for a 30th Spitfire? (not kidding ya)

I found it in a local model shop around here, in Antwerp, back in 2002. If I recall correctly, they had three of them at the time. Maybe they've still got some left, so I'll be sure to check the next time I'm there.

I'm so sorry, I've finished the Me-262 last January and largely assembled the Me-321 "Gigant".

But I'll try too look out for one.

Yeah, I know... It's probably the most common complaint among modellers! ;p

I've been trying to reduce my stash lately, though, but right now it doesn't really look like I'm having much success. (something like 10 made - 20 bought since New Year's Day... ^^; )

Plenty of case studies around, I guess... Even with my current, rather modest stash (in comparison with others I know), I guess it'd take me at least five years to build it all... if I don't buy anything new, that is! ^^;

What are you waiting for? Start building! :D You have more aircraft than my stash. Dang that's an EF-2000. Cool!

I saw a Verlinden detail set. For what kit? :D
Reply
:iconkanyiko:
kanyiko Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The Verlinden kit's for a Panavia Tornado, though probably more useful on an F.3 instead of the GR.1A I'm intending to make.

But rest assured, I am building, really I am. Right now, I'm doing finishing touches on an RF-84F Thunderstreak, an Alouette III and a Tiger II tank, while having a half-finished Jaguar GR.4, Harrier GR.7, Fiat G.50 bis, Fokker F.27, Douglas TBD-1 Devastator and Messerschmitt Me 262B-1a/U-1 un the shelve...

shonenred Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2006
Cool. I also have a Verlinden detail set for the F-16 before - too bad, I have the "C" type and not the "A" type as written in the Verlinden detail box. Oh well.

BTW, how good is that 1/72 Tornado? I have an old Hasegawa one I bought just this week. It went fine, but the decals started to yellow :crying:

kanyiko Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I still remember buying the Tornado, and opening the box. I didn't really know what to expect at the time (and was half 'n half expecting a variant of either the Italeri or even Matchbox Tornado), and it really blew me away for a second...

In short: 5 grey and 2 transparent sprues, with 193 grey and 14 transparent parts (of which 7 grey and 2 transparent aren't used for this version). It's a nicely engraved, nicely detailled kit, panel lines aren't too harsh or over-exaggerated. A 24-page plan is included, giving a 65-step construction diagram (61 steps for the actual build, 4 steps for decal application)

Two versions can be made with the kit: one for a 9 Squadron RAF Tornado, based at Brüggen, Germany in 1998, and one for a 17 Squadron RAF Tornado, also based at Brüggen in 1998. The 9 Sqdn Tornado has a dark green/dark grey wrap-around camouflage scheme, while the 17 Sqdn one has a two-tone grey scheme.

Armament included in the kit is quite extensive, with AIM-9M missiles; Sky Shadow and BOZ 101 pods for both versions, and an alternative choice of 2250 liter tanks and ALARM anti-radar missiles for the 9 squadron Tornado, and either 2250 liter tanks and laser-guided 1000 lbs Paveways; or 1500 liter and 1000 lbs dumb bombs for the 17 squadron Tornado.

The decal sheet is a quite extensive one (over 600 individual decals!!), and of a very fine quality.

Mould date is given as being 1998, decals as 2000. I know the mould has also been used for Revell's Tornado IDS and ECR versions, but not for its F.3 ADV version (which I think is the old Matchbox set...)

Looks like a nice buy, then ofcourse, I'll be having 2 Tornados with just a single decal sheet. Thanks for the info!

:iconkanyiko:
kanyiko Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, I see what you mean...

...

Then of course, if you'd buy the Revell kit, and would find its decal sheet to be 'faulty', you could always write them for a replacement, right...? ;D
