    You're right about colors: in the P-40N construction report from Konradus, someone commented on the poor print and color quality, and the author responded that his copy does not have any visible coloring problems... :cry: On the other hand here is this TS-11 Iskra construction report and the model looks very, very good. I take back whatever opinion I had and I'm taking a position of not having an opinion until I have the model in my hands.

    Hey guys,

    just thought I would fill you in.

    Krys over at has the Sparviero, and I just bought a copy

    for 16.50 bucks, looks like a steal to me

    Looking forward to the start of next weeks "build write-up" on this beauty...;-)

    Who.... what...huh?

    Peter, for shame, you know that everyone has to finish the models they are working on currently.

    I'll give an impression, but the build will have to wait

    Golden Bear, I think that you should not build the P40 from Orlik.
    You can see here in kartonbau forum that the model isnt good.
    You can translate it with google.
    The designer of the model is Tadeusz Grzelczak. It seems that tthis designer is capable of the best and worst.

    Hey all,

    I got my order from Krys today.

    and flipping through the kit, the first image strikes me as interesting

    it is a picture of the Water Bomber mentioned on a another thread.
    the CL 215

    Goldenbear... for me the Orlik mis-registered model would be a pain in the butt initially but like my purchased hardcopy models. I always scan them at 300DPI and print them on the nearest type cardstock (well so far my KV2 which remains uncut but uneditted in rastor form).

    With the models in digital form I can either add detail or fix mistakes in the model which is why I like my purchased/freebee online models which are already in digital format.

    If I ever get ahold of this kit on Ebay... I'll let you know and send you the digital fixes seeing that you did buy a kit that unfortunately cannot work with. A good example of fixing poor or damaged kits in the old PT-76 from MalyModelarz... I know why it was auctioned cheap =\. Anyhow ... the paper's nap was so beaten that it was damn close to irish linen :lol: I just scanned and instead of photoshopping it ... traced over it in vectors and made it crisper and cleaner. Then with the help of the net searched for some details to add which were missing on the mode thereby making it better in quality than the original ever was (my opinion). Now that I am a bit more savvy in the 2D department... I will go back and improve on it.

    So if your avoiding a model because of misregistration don't toss it. There is bound to be someone hopefully anal as myself who scans and corrects existing models.

    I want to build that P40 someday so your not totally out of luck on that purchase.
