  1. Absolutely, Unequivocally, Yes!

  2. It's definitely "definitive." Go look at my "weathered Solomons F4U-1" to get an idea what I will be doing.

  3. Would be, but too rich for my blood. Can't afford any of the Tamiya super kits, or to spend that much on any one kit. I do think it is great that they push the envelope though.

  4. Hell yeah! Even if I have to make a late car payment. 😉

  5. nah...they should have released a 1A rob said way overpriced...not excited
