If I only had the ability for my wallet to be in pain. 




WOW that Scritti.  Wowzers!  And the IP line is very promising.  They look to be better than their already stellar resin offerings.  I hope that they do not suffer from their resin counterpart's 'thin armour' syndrome.  I must say that WSC is good at avoiding that fault.

rainguy, I'm quite sure that the pictures of the Scritti you posted is not the same kit as the Volks offering.

And damn, 6 more months before the summer WF...I hope the Scritti will be released sooner than that.

Nuh-uh.  I fully supported FSS in IP and well done.  I just said back then that it'd take many parts.  And many parts they are.

don't remember if you were one of the nay-sayers...but the detractors were basically saying it's not possible to reproduce fine details and the sort of 'curves' MH have in plastic form.

I need the Prominence! But the Vatshu comes first as Volks is taking preorder for it again on Feb. 27th. Not sure about the rest of you, but I'm still hesitance of spending $140 for a plastic kit...

True, but it's always better to have the kit than not. At least the plastic kits will require less masking, which is encouraging for a lazy ass like myself, lol.

It's not worth mentioning...I hope to have better luck with my Siren R.

aight..good luck!! hope to see some WIP pics. I picked up the same recast kit too...quite surprised at how partsy it is.

just saw on the toyspress page that there seem to be a re-release of the Tani 1/144 and 1/220 Jagd...dunno if it's news or not.
