Prowler review coming up

I've actually done up a Prowler review some time back, but as usual I forgot to post it. It was of the new Nitto boxing of the Prowler before I sold the kit. I just checked and saw that hey, I have for myself the old SF3D boxing of the Prowler for myself. So tell you what I am going to do, I am gonna get the pictures of the old SF3D boxing in, and THEN post both up as a complete and proper review...

Stay tuned! (And hopefully I wouldn't forget this time :) )

Fliege Review

I've done up the scans for this review for many months now, but forgot to put it up due to being too busy in my daily life. Well here it is. The Fliege. Its not one of my favourite suits, due to the retro-like window open for the pilot, but is a major favourite among Ma.K modellers (and frequent request for YAJ bids). The sprue details are the same as the Kauz, so I'll omit them from this review. It has a pilot (standing) figure as part of the kit, though, as usual Nitto figures quality goes, the details are a bit soft.

Scale: 1/20
Type of material : injection molded, multi-media, off white colored plastic
Number of parts: 100+ in 5 sprues
Decals: yes

Random Thoughts and Sales Analysis

Remember my previous blog post on selling my favourite kits?

Here's an update: I've sold off my Gans, Oskar and Krachenvogel...
Selling off the Oskar was particularly painful, as it was my most favourite kit, don't ask me why because I can't explain it...
I've just gotten another Krachenvogel in my latest model kit shipment, but I might just sell that away as I don't like it that much.
I will keep the Neuspotter kit as its missing the camo card and I've taken out Eddy Amsel to use...

Just briefly went thru my Ma.K sales and here's the top 5 kits in terms of number of kits sold:

The Gustav is the winner by a large margin, I think it not being released as a new release like the AFS and its the basis of many of the Strahl suits making it a favourite.
I didn't expect the Fliege to be so popular, as I personally don't like it... But it seems to be a hit with everyone else.

Well just some random thoughts from me today...
