About Jim Starkweather (staff_Jim)

I started building models in 1971 when I was 6. My first model was a 1/32 P-40 Warhawk. Revell I believe. From there I moved onto the standard cars, Apollo spacecraft, and other kid orientated kits.

First thing that comes to my mind is why they are not making add-ons for the Trumpie 1/200th scale models? They would look better than the "flat" PE sets and I would guess they would be easier to handle and fix too. In any case this verges on sheer magic creating such detail in 1/700th scale. Bet the price is equally impressive Cheers, Julian

HLJ has them for about $10 + shipping. LINK And DragonUSA's store has them for about $13 + shipping LINK So not very much considering. There are quite a few other sets available as well. They do have some 1/350 Nano Dread sets also. Cheers, Jim

Sounds like it should be enough. And they're nice and cheap on HLJ at the moment. I might have to pick a set or two up for a couple of projects. Thanks
