my new model suggestions please
« on: February 24, 2007, 05:38:31 PM »
Hi there boys!! (and girls if any)

I have just bought a new model, a Su-27 in 1/72 scale. It is from revell and costed 50 dollars, quite a lot, so I expect to be restricted to this model only :( at least for 6 months... ;D

I wanted to know if you have tips for me, of any kind, painting and putting it toghether. I will try to upload the photos when finished so that you can see it.

Ok, looking forward to your anwers!!

You could buy a kit...  ;) or decal it with the airbrush.  :P Why do your models cost so much, Globetrotter?  ???

I don't know... these things cost much more in places like south america. Fortunately, a friend suggested buying from www.luckymodel.com, which is much cheaper, even including the sending costs.

sorry Niels, forgot about the other thread :/
