Default Ukrainian_Falcons Arrival Pics

This just in from HK. A nice little model, looks abit better in person then in pre/final production pics.

Slowly building up an Arab nations theme, anticipating the Egyptian Fishbed but what I'd like to see are some more diverse Arab aircraft like Floggers and Foxbats etc, maybe next year ?

That is why I always use The Flying Mule for final photos as they are more professional and helpful when making that final decision to buy or not.

This nice little model just arrived from the UK. Originally not fan of Dauntless models for being abit "rivety" around the engine and cockpit and all those tail panel lines, my USN WWII theme was lacking an SBD (as well as a few others) so I decided I'd go cheap with my first SBD.

I was concerned about the colour and lack of "step" stripe but the colour is actually decent, it is by no means Blue Grey but more a tone typically seen on battle hardened and sun bleached SBD's (minus the damage)

It also doesn't look too out of place with other early war aircraft. This particular model was flown by Lt Richard Best during the Battle of Midway and is made by Corgi as part of their Predators range and can still be bought very cheaply off ebay.

Two more Dauntless's incoming in the next few weeks

I also had a rather nice Dragon Wings F4F Wildcat arrive but in very poor shape, packaging was very good but so many broken plastic parts, my only guess given the age of the model and maybe poor storage resulted in the plastic becoming brittle.

Anyway, maybe an aircraft Skymax or Hobby Master can try. More mid war schemes would be nice.

PS: Marston matting base used temporarily, I have a very nice USN carrier deck base coming in for future reviews / displaying.

There are also two more SBD's Corgi came out with, a tri tone USMC and another generic USN copy BUT with the step stripe, I personally preferred Lt Best's mount and the uniqueness of lack of stripe, which was not common to see without on most USN aircraft.

DHL delivered this today

The Catalina is a very nice aircraft and model. I was a big fan of Corgi many years ago, then I noticed a dive in QC around the time I stopped collecting WWII on a regular basis, sadly Corgi now suffers from HM lack of pride, quality and care.

Overall model is ok, stand is complete junk though, I have a few large Corgi models on stands and this one is extremely loose.

Not going to sugar coat it, defo buy in person if you can. Think Corgi should have spent more time on the models QC rather then making a fancy looking box that now goes in the cupboard

Now time for pics

Busy day for the postmen today

2 more Hobby Master SBD's and a US carrier deck display base.

First HA0112, classic HM, epic model, flawless, nice weathering, packaging was top notch with tie downs and plastic wrap to protect the wings rather then tabs.

Truely the glory days of HM, supurb model.







Then we enter 2012, when the HM complacency rot began. HA0170, possibly one of the nicest tri tone SBD's, maybe even nicest tri tone model full stop but I'm ashamed to say.... HM stood down.... it terms of paint QC, a model that could have been a perfect 10 is just a mediocre 7.







And much like these schemes are early and mid war, so is HM's QC, awesome early and mediocre mid releases.

I haven't purchased anything in the last few weeks - I did get the Catalina but, like you, I wasn't impressed and so returned it. January could be a very busy month for me: quite a few Corgi releases here in the UK - assuming they don't delay them AGAIN - and also a few HM models I'm after should be arriving here in the UK end of the month. The only other model I will probably get before the end of the year is the latest Chinook.

You're in HK, aren't you? So your busy December probably coincides with my busy January!

No no lol I'm based in Australia but I did get the Catalina from the UK, was much cheaper then from HK actually, glad I saved at least $40, nice model just ruined but sloppy QC.

Yeah I'm done for this year, been mostly hunting down older releases, finished that quest now, looking forward to what's coming out next year. Hoping HM come out with some exciting new stuff rather then mediocre dups

I see there is a lot of difference in paint jobs on those two SBD releases but apart from not getting any weathering on the newer one, what is wrong with the paint as I don't see any chips of or other damage done during manufacturing?

Well there are several tiny things wrong with HM's paint QC on HA0170 but they are not obvious in photos but in person when inspecting the model.

For example, the white undersides are pretty average, not much care was taken, then there are is tiny scratch on the wing and some really tiny flecks of white paint that had spilt on the blue. Finally the packaging was crap, there is a part of the model under the nose that HM allowed to rub and bump up against the clam shell, no idea why HM saw fit to have that section of shell so close to the model, it didn't support it, it damaged it.

That last part is what ruined it for me, I could see past all the other tiny &@$# ups but not one where I have to repair to model, that is not acceptable.

This is a great comparison of what were HM's standards and what they are now and it's not looking good.

For me, painting quality is even more important then accuracy as the scheme is why we buy particular models, it's pretty much 80% of whether a model is a successful good quality product or not, there should be NO EXCUSES for careless paint quality, tones and poor handling of the model once completed.

There should be no excuses for careless paint quality OR poor accuracy unless that poor accuracy is a consequence of a limitation imposed by the manufacturing process.

Christmas is coming early this year

Skymax TBD-1 Devastator flown by George Gay at the Battle of Midway.

A suburb model, Skymax is quiet possibly THE best manu to have ever existed. Model, parts, packaging, all top notch A1 quality. The stand is nice, allowing for the torpedo to be displayed inflight but it is a heavy model and the stand small and abit weak.









Sadly, once HM had a firm grip on Skymax, you could notice HM rot creep in, less printing, cheaper paints, less detailed and unpainted parts (in the case of TBD's, the bomb sight) if you can, hunt down the vintage Skymax stuff, you won't regret it.

Hobby Master SB2C-4 Helldiver VB-3 "Black Panthers" USS Yorktown

Along with the TBD-1, this model was the first of its type to enter my collection. It is indeed a very nice model and I look forward to tracking down more if I can. My only issue with the model is the again careless application of white paint under the model, if HM would sort this QC out for its USN props, this would have been even better.

This model has a nice presence on the ground but the stand allows for diving display so naturally I chose that.

Hobby Master TBM-3 Avenger USS Essex, Yamato Sinking

Another great model, this time the white undersides were much better. The use of tabs is once again abit of an issue however. Had HM adopted Skymax's style on clam shell packaging, I think that would have saved a lot of models and heart arch. This one is fine but only just.

Finally, here is the HM base compared to a brand called Coastal Kits, which btw make extremely nice bases.



And a group shot, this shall look even better once I merge the rest of my WWII USN theme together.

Nice to see your collection

My Catalina arrived last week but I only got around to opening it yesterday & was pleased with it. I suspect we used the same UK retailer, it was actually a great deal for a Corgi 'heavy' & a bit cheaper than Hong Kong as you said.

I like the box but I swear it is 25% bigger than it needs to be....

Thanks Major

The Catalina is decent, maybe I was expecting more from Corgi. I reckon so, mine was shipped express for $180, while it would have cost $225 from HK via regular air mail.

I did notice some differences to Corgi's oringal pre pro, no hoop radar and main gears are silver rather then white on the final.

Haha it'll do for now, till it crashes or I find something better

The models quality can't be faulted, I thought things were looking up for HM when I saw they could still make good models like this Viking and Prowler but then ST112 happened

Only other Viking I could see worth getting would be Red Griffins rainbow tail scheme (no I'm not gay lol) but if it to have yellow wings, which it both did and didn't have AT SOME POINT, I'd stick with the Topcats. But would like to add Harpoon missiles to it.

Well, I don't think there's anything wrong with the decision to getting the Topcats. It's a nice enough scheme.

If I may ask, what did you find wrong with ST112? Is it accuracy, QC issue or perhaps both?

ST112 was just a very average product, panel lines covered over in a lot of places, sloppy painting, I've seen it on all examples of this model, could be a bad batch or plainly lower standards at HM.

Now if HM could make more Camo floggers and not screw up the egg blue undersides, that would be great. The guy in charge of HM's paint department is obviously colour blind

That SBD-2 does look very nice. Unfortunately pre-war places outside my theme limits so I shall just have to admire it from afar!

Any preference between the Syrian and EgyptIan Fishbeds now you have them both?

I'm hoping for a soviet Camo Flogger but Iraqi would also be welcome, I'd get a Syrian but HM need to mix it up abit.

I was the same, never thought I'd get anything pre war but it was cheap so I added it. Will track down a TBD to pair up with. Only other pre war AC would be a Wildcat but not a fan of the Easy Model version.

I would say I prefer the Syrian Fishbed, something just doesn't feel right about the Egyptian version, the light green looks off and HM still persist in going full retard when it comes to colours. As you can see from the first Egyptian Fishbed which has the correct egg blue undersides, HM then decided to do it wrong every other Camo release. Even Easy Model got it correct on the Hind D.

If they continue with this, it's going to cost them a few Flogger releases I won't get because of this, it's cute to get it wrong on a $80 model, not on a $120 model.

Funnily enough I had planned on getting the Egyptian based solely on the artwork, but seeing yours I had swung more to getting the Syrian. I also felt something was a bit off with the green on the Egyptian. Hmm.......may come down to what I can get cheapest!

Although I'm expecting Calibre to release a Syrian Fencer so that may mean I pick up the Egyptian Fishbed for varieties sake. Decisions, decisions........

That's another possibility. Maybe we'll even see a Sudanese Su 24!? Their contribution to the 'lets all bomb Yemen' Arabic Coalition.

First arrival for 2017

SM2005 Skymax La-5, Soviet Air Force 254th GIAP, Konstantin Nazimov, Poland, Summer 1944

A very nice model, fairly small but well executed, I should have gotten this one much early but glad I could still find it for a good price.

Damn those Dragon diorama bases are good!

And they were cheap as chips for a long time too - the Jug looks great in that setting
