Re: FoV Chinooks

I’ve had one for a few months. I’m not an expert on the CH-47, but I really like the detail of this model. For the price, I thought it would look more like a toy.

Re: New Air Force One 747-8

Re: 1/200 Martin 404 Southern Airways

Could WM UK be reworking the mold? Especially the tail? I have the Eastern 404 on order. Hope they get it sorted out.

I have both the Pan American and Buffalo versions. I had to box up the Pan American recently. It’s a shame it looked great when it was new. Now, it has a lot of corrosion or rot.

It's a great looking mold. It will be nice to see some other paint schemes on this aircraft. The only problem I see, is the three oversized antennas, they are a bit distracting.
