The F-105G Wild Weasel is a must have for me as well as one of the MiG 29's. A good month indeed!

Glad you got your wish, BB!

I'll definitely get the GAF Fulcrum. A pity that the Polish one is the 100th Anniversary special paint (I only collect standard c/s), but I'm sure others will like it.

Release Review:

Overall , a quiet month.

- WW: ah, the famous "War of Vietnam." Probably a buy.

- F-35C Jolly Rogers pole "aircraft" = what a cash grab. But, then again, if people will buy it, why not. And, let's be honest with ourselves - EVERYTHING here is a cash grab. We don't "honor veterans" by buying this stuff. If you like it, buy it.

- Polish MiG-29. I think HM got some bad advice here. Probably somebody told them to make this instead of the ones with the circular insignia on the spine because JC Wings already did the circular insignia ones. However, JC's look like crap but those are the insignia that I think far more people saw at RIAT and elsewhere. So, I'd suggest to HM that they change this to bort 40 with grey circle logo and urbanowicz on the tail. Still, if they stick with this one it wont be terrible.

- I can't imagine why HM is bothering with Pakistan Air Force F-16 except to further (correctly, in this case) humiliate india for their lying press and social media machine claiming a few months ago that they shot down a PAF F-16.

- Aussies continue to get GREAT liveries that Growler will be beautiful.

HOBBYMASTER!

Please make this F-35B:


Decals Available:
FURBALL AERO-DESIGN 1/72 DECAL F-35B ANTHOLOGY JOINT STRIKE FIGHTERS PT 3 72-008

The way I see it, this is probably the only chance to have an F-35C with the Jolly Rogers scheme....yes it's a testbed, yes it's a mockup etc...but it's representation is based on 1:1.

Back when suggested, I could not find a delivery schedule that showed VFA-103 getting any F-35C's anytime soon, if ever. But hey if it does ever go to VFA-103 .... William knows it's another JR release with a F-35C VFA-103 operational scheme.......and if it never makes it to VFA-103...at least with this release, a collector will have an F-35C with them bones . The Jolly Rogers logo sells on just about anything..... Arrrr

Btw....it's not the first time a testbed aircraft has been produced in 1/72 diecast.

The Polish MiG-29 is definitely tempting to get but i'll rather wait for either the Iraqi or Syrian Fulcrum versions...

So, I pre-ordered the F-105G. Fingers crossed that HM will do this one right in something resembling the relatively nicer finishes of their earlier vietnam camouflage aircraft and not the horrible crap that was some of the later ones. I decided to get this one because after some consideration of the various G liveries out there, I decided that this was the one to get - it is the livery from the USAF museum, has the WW tail code, has the 3 'kill' stars, etc. Probably the only similarly popular livery for this will be one with the (boar's) teeth on the front, but I prefer this one without.

Now, what can HM make this aircraft as great as it can be? The usual things:

1. paint. Please please please take the time to make the camo on this one look decent.
2. stencils. less fussed about this, since i figure i'll have to add them myself, but the real Gs had a ton of stencils. Hopefully HM can come close to this.

should be a very nice model if those are done.

All these wishes and suggestions can only work if they are accompanied by sentence like: I have already sent an email about this to William.

No asks, no gets.

Apart from the Weasel, there's nothing on there that I could possibly want. & even then it depends on whether they get everything right on the Weasel.

I don't understand the allure of the "pole test" scheme. Are they going to make it out of wood?

what's there to understand?

some people like JR because it looks cool. the pole scheme may be as real as a macross JR bird, but people like them because to them, they look cool.

again, we need to be very careful and realistic with what our hobby is and what it is not. while buying these models may make you think about history or technology or active servicepeople or whatever, that is ultimately a secondary effect. we do not in any real way honor history or servicepeople or whatever by buying the models - we honor them by thinking about them. buying the models is an act into of itself that is ultimately a business transaction where you give money to a chinese company for something you like. nothing more, nothing less. and my view is that if somebody likes a pole sitting f35 and that helps the chinese company stay in business to make models that i like, then i'm all for it.

Yes, this release really has love-hate potential. I personally don´t understand this release too, but honestly I don´t understand the whole HM´s F-35 warty thing as well. But I predict it can finally sell well, as all HM F-35s surprisingly do.

I would buy it only upon two "what-if" conditions:
- HM F-35 would be completely without current warty surfaces
- it will sell including (shortened) pole test display stand:

Yeah, for it to be accurate, they’d have to ditch all panel lines and paint the canopy. As it is, I suppose it’s just a fantasy livery. It may as well be a JR Concorde. Haha!

It is true...a Fantasy Livery is accurate....and with that there is a certain amount of artistic license to sell the idea.

It is my understanding that this model will have a standard display stand, landing gear, pilot, and load out as like with other HM F-35 models.

Although HM lists it as a Pole Test ( https://www.hobbymastercollector.com/HA6203.html ) .......the actual description and it purpose for existing is it's true goal and that is Antenna Testing. Below is how The Flying Mule correctly describes it.......notice "Pole Testing" is not worded in it.

HM  December 2019 Poster-image.jpeg

So, as mentioned those who like/love the Jolly Rogers will probably buy it regardless whether it's a Fantasy model and you use pole test or antenna test to describe it.

Btw Thursday, September 19 is International Talk Like A Pirate Day .... International Talk Like a Pirate Day is a parodic holiday created in 1995 by John Baur and Mark Summers, of Albany, Oregon, U.S., who proclaimed September 19 each year as the day when everyone in the world should talk like a pirate.

Arrrrrrrrr!!!

Managed to screen capture this before "popups" stopped me from accessing more info. This bird doesn't appear to be in a 2019 lineup as far as 2019 HM posters go... Or did I miss it?

HA6008

Perhaps an exclusive buyer contract?
