Fairey firefly

I ordered this model plane on the understanding it was assembled and painted - it was not and instead of paying $185 plus shipping this type of product should only cost $15 - 20. I have asked for a refund but have not heard anything

Great gift idea

Got this for my partner for his bday who is a plane enthusiast, he was impressed with it, though the glue included did not have pointy end which is necessary when building it, still was happy with it.

Initially boticed two plastic parts that would spring open once attached together but can be solved with glue.

Had issues when I ordered it, had to chase them as it was "waiting to be sent" for days. But it was sent after I sent an email so all good

Very fine details, and details are seemingly rather correct compared to pictures of the real thing. Notice that the main parts in this detailing set is ment to be positioned before cementing the cockpit together.

First Rate Decals For An Unusual Marking Scheme

The decals arrived and were applied to both Revell 1/32 and Academy Minicraft 1/48 Piper Super Cub models. They were all in register with good color and were admirably thin if a little fussy to position properly due to their thinness. Certainly care must be taken during application. They responded well to decal setting solutions and snuggled right down to the model's details. Highly recommended.

Product rated : Consolidated B-24 Liberator propeller with tool (designed to be assembled with model kits from Asademy and Eduard)

Look carefully and be ready for a long wait

This kit shows four blades per propeller but in fact is only for three. Hub has only three stations. Maker claims they give you four extra blades! We wanted this for 1/72 scale Boeing 377 with four blades and had to end up making the hubs from scratch. So these are only three bladed props. Order wait time was a month, thats right a month. So be ready.

Very good.

I was reluctant to purchase from this site, because in a previous transaction, the shop took two weeks before shipping the item. This time, they were the only vendor that carried the decals I wanted, so I ordered them. I was very surprised and pleased to see how quickly they were shipped this time. Thank you.

Wrong decals sent to me

I ordered two separate occasions from this company. The first order never showed up. The second order for the same 1/48 scale decals I paid a 20.00 extra fee to expedite my order. Still it took 3 weeks to receive my decals and wouldn’t you know instead of 1/48 scale I got 1/72 scale. Amazing it only took 1.50 to send the all the way back to Paris wouldn’t do business with them again

Tacit Blue Czech Failure

Third time trying... Have been cut off twice now. Worst plastic model ever. Just removing parts from plastic stems sometimes needed small saw leaving connecting parts not fixable with out sanding and scraping. Have constructed many aircraft and ship models this is the worst. Having waited for weeks for delivery what a disappointmenr. The Testors polystyrene ABS cement i usually use will not hold. I would trash the thing but I have a history with the aircraft having been with it since inception. Is there a cement that would work better. I would like very much to save this project.

Solid period model w/some flash and seam line issues

I built one for a diorama w/Tamiya Spitfire. Well detailed truck model with a very nice undercarriage but with some manufacturing issues mostly due to seams on smaller parts being off by a mm or so. Also some of the smaller parts broke easily. That looks great when weathered and in a diorama...I know this is a niche product but props to Airfix for making one.

Rare paint has been found!

Living in a small town in the US, the internet is the way to go. I looked all over for this product and only found it here. Eco shipping took a little time but the wait was worth it all (shipped from U.K.). I reached out to the staff and they were willing to replace if it took to long/seemed lost. Right when I was going to reach out for a replacement the item arrived. Again worth the wait and great staff to help. Thank you 1001 for your service. I will def recommend to anyone in need.

The undercarriage set works perfectly on the 1/48 scale Hasegawa P-40E, the 1/48 scale Airfix P-40B, the 1/48 scale Academy P-36A Hawk and the1/48 scale Hobby Craft P-36A/C. The wheel compartment fits perfectly in the wings and makes a definite improvement. The parts from 1001 Model Kits arrived quickly and the packaging was very good.

Product rated : F-84G Thunderjet Thunderbird 1953 show season

Another Jewel from HM

This is an outstanding model of an interesting and perhaps little-known type. In true HM style, the seams, overall details and markings are excellent, including the auxiliary intake doors, intake splitter and pitot tube, in-wing refueling system and reinforced canopy which were unique to the F-84G model. You can't beat their quality, even in this older Skymax offering.

The 1953 Thunderbirds markings are correct, with the added bonus of representing the aircraft flown by then-CAPT Jack Broughton, who would command the Thunderbirds and later an F-106 squadron in North Dakota, as well as serve as Vice Commander of the famous 355th FW in Thailand during the Vietnam War. Broughton's experiences were made famous in his book Thud Ridge. I'm a very satisfied customer.

I was happy to find this PE set, as it is now out of production. The price with shipping was good. However, it arrived damaged. It was poorly packed, having been placed in a letter envelope with no cardboard to stiffen and protect the PE sheet. It is now creased thru the middle, damaging the flaps, plus some other pieces needed for the cockpit. trying to find a way to directly contact the company was fruitless, with any link saying customer service taking me back to the listing.... so, I will keep the set, salvage what I can, but I will never buy from this company again.
