    Hello from Eastern Iowa

    Welcome Aboard!
  4. Hey Gang, Dusted off my work area and am about done with two (very late) review kits. Looking for a project to work on next. I found a few images online of tropical Fw190's which have gotten my wheels turning on one of those. I see that Hasegawa made two kits with resin trop filters in 1/48: 09818 A-4 "Graf" 09976 A-5 "Graf Special" I believe these resin parts are the same in both kits, so I was wondering if anyone has built either of these and didn't use the filter parts. *I know these full kits are available on eBay and I also know that there is a Quickboost cowl with the trop filters for the older Eduard kit. I have a few Hasegawa kits I would like to build rather than buy something new. I also know Eduard is reissuing their 190 line, so I am sure they will be coming out with one soon. Thanks for your time. Tim

    Is IPMS Vagabonds still active?

    Yes - what Ron said. Shoot Scott an email and I am sure he can help.
  6. Does anyone have an old Eduard PE set 48-021 1/48 Piper Cub that they no longer need? It's for the Hobbycraft kit. Thanks for your time. Tim

    Hasegawa 1/48 "Eien No Zero" A6M2b Zero Combo

    Cool - if the retail is what is shown @ $40 and this really is two new tool 1/48 kits this is a great chance for folks to stock up. I'm still waiting for the movie to be released in a format I can watch here in the USA!

    USAF CV-22 egg

    Cool - thanks for posting The last one of these I went into with a "I need something to slap together" attitude, and I think I spent more time on it than a regular kit. They are great conversation kits in the case!

    Special Hobby He-115B

    Nice work Dick - Thanks for posting. I have always liked the look of the 115 (but not brave enough to pick up this kit!)

    IPMS/USA Website Issues

    Not really an "issue" but I first had trouble finding the link to the forums - not a huge deal as I have it bookmarked now (new computer & I haven't been here in a while) Everything seems to take a bit to load - but again I haven't been here in a while... By "everything" I mean clicking between topics, and posting replies - I get the spinning circle. (but that could be on my end) Thanks for all of your work with this!

    Best Zero Kit

    The new Tamiya kits are very nice, but I have yet to build one. I have built several of the Hasegawa kits, and they are, in my mind - still very worth buying. As was posted above - they also have the "full range" of Zero kits available. If you're looking for an A6M5 or A6M3 - you can't lose with Hasegawa or Tamiya. If you're looking for any of the other variebts - go with the Hasegawa kit. Regards, Tim
