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.

Modelsvit Mirage III CJ

When I got back into modeling in the early 1980s, one of the first models I built was a Matchbox Mirage as an Israeli Mirage IIICJ.  As you can imagine, it was a rough kit.  We’ve really needed a new IIICJ.  Modelsvit has come thru for us and I must say I want one, or two.

On the Plastic Model Mojo podcast a few months ago I was talking with Mike about the abundance of new 72nd scale aircraft kits that have been released in the last few years. I talked about how few mainstream subjects were left that needed updating. One aircraft I did mention is the C-46. Well, it turns out Valom must have heard me. (ha). They have announced a new C-46, in several different boxings.
