I love WWII history.  Another story I didn’t know.  Also, I have a kit of this aircraft.

Look at what we have here.  The biggest question this raises is how did Border Models get the molds?  Inquiring minds want to know.

This is the kit that Mike mentioned on the episode of The Scale Model Podcast that he and I were recently on.  I agree with Mike, this is a must have.

Don’t buy Armory Tu-128 resin wheels

I’ve been spoiled. Most resin wheels I use are Barracudacals resin wheels. They are great. However, they weren’t an option for the Tu-128. So I opted for the only game in town, Armory.

Sadly, Armory isn’t Barracudacals. Not by a long shot. While more detailed that the kit wheels, it isn’t by much and certainly not worth the expense. The detail is soft. Also much of the additional detail will be wiped out drilling out the axle hole.

In short, save your money and use the kit wheels.
