Gertjan Zwart Comparing the Fujimi Seaking to the Revell kit, I would say the Revell kit definitely is the best. It has more detail overall. The Fujimi though has the older type main rotor, whereas the Revell needs some surgery if you want an older machine. Also the Revell kit has the Westland feature of the oil cooler fairing (?) on the transmission housing (below the rotor head) you need to sand this away if you want a Sikorsky Sea King.
Main problem imho on the Fujimi kit is the shape of the nose and the cockpit glazing. If I place the kit over a 1:72 side drawing, the Fujimi nose turns out too short and not `pointy´ enough. The shape of the three frontal windows, above the nose area appears to be too flat. Just my 2 cts.
scalemates you already have this one in your stash, and now you add it to your wishlist?

Malte D Yea, I need another one for a Kitbash with an Revell HH-3, as you can trow the rotors etc from it directly from the box into the trash bin.

scalemates hehe I'm working on a big change that will allow you to link specific products to specific "projects", it will allow you to add multiple products to your stash/wishlist, now it is limited to 1...you'll also be able to link one product to multiple "projects" => Example a decalsheet linked to 2 different projects

Malte D That sounds like a great idea. maybe you could implement a possibility to post a link to the picture of the "actual example" of the project. So you can say "look on this picture (link), I want to build exactly this one" Uploading a picture would an option, too but that would take a lot of space and might also bring copyright problems.
Whatever, great site and still great ideas to improve it!

Tim Vereecke yes, that will be an option as well... when I have the first draft version of the "project feature" I can send a preview link? you can then give some feedback before I release it to everybody?.... ps: if you now post a url of an external image in a comment it already creates a thumbnail....
