Very nice buff. I would have thought it deserved better than a "copper" (bronze?) but, then again, I don't know what the competition looked like.

Hi Yu Lin,

A beautiful BUFF! I concur that the bronze seems light for your excellent work.

I have this kit and most of the Tamiya ( and others' ) 1/100 kits. I am stoked to start it now.

Tamiya had a substantial line of 1/100 modern jets and helicopters, the 1/100 Scale Mini-Jet Series of the early 1970''s. These are delightful little kits with recessed panel lines. I have yet to build a new 1/144 aeroplane so I cannot compare them, but these are as nice or better than many pre-CAD 1/72 kits.

Most 1/100th scale aircraft are great lil' gems of a model. I have most of these and intend to present these little known and underappreciated kits as I build them. Others are:

1. Tamiya 1/100 BAC Lightning F.Mk.6

2. Tamiya 1/100 Boeing B-52D Stratofortress

3. Tamiya 1/100 McDonnell-Douglas F-4E Phantom II

4. Tamiya 1/100 McDonnell Douglas F-4K / M

5. Tamiya 1/100 Lockheed F-104J/G

6. Tamiya 1/100 Me 163 & Me 262 Set

7. Tamiya 1/100 MiG 19 Farmer

8. Tamiya 1/100 Republic F-105D

9. Tamiya 1/100 Saab Draken

10. Tamiya 1/100 Saab AJ 37 Viggen

11. Tamiya 1/100 Sikorsky CH-54A Skycrane

Other 1/100 Aircraft:

1. F4B-4 Boeing 99 by AHM

2. Grumman F3F-3 by AHM

3. F-4E Phantom II by AHM

4. Focke-Wulf 190 A-5 by Doyusha

5. Fi 156 Storch by Faller

6. V1 & V2 & Trailer set by Faller

7. F-4F Phantom II by Roskopf

When able, I will post the A-4 Skyhawk, A-7 Corsair II, A-6 Intruder, F-8 Crusader, F-14 Tomcat, F-15 Eagle, F-100 Super Sabre, F-101 Voodoo, Kfir, Mirage III, MiG-21, UH-1 Huey, AH-1 Cobra, H-3 Sea King, C-47, and any others I can find!

Model railroaders and war gamers of OO [1/76] through TT [1/120] (including E and QO SCALE [1/96], OOC SCALE [1/100], 3mm SCALE and TM SCALE {a version of TT}[1/101.6]) desiring aircraft had, and still suffer, a relatively small field to choose from. Accurate Miniatures, AHM, Doyusha, Faller, Revell, Roskopf, Takara, Tamiya and others fill the void with a good selection of common and popular aircraft c.1930 - present.

Enjoy!

Thanks your praise, actually the position is not very for me important, can complete the model which one like is most important. Is anticipating your work

Excellent model and a well deserved medal.
I cant help thinking that Toronto is a long way to travel from Gansu China for a model show

Excellent BUFF! Well deserved medal although it could have gotten more precious metal in mu opinion.

Thanks for sharing

Hello Yu Lin!
I am very interested in the Tamiya 1/100 B-52D (#60025). Unfortunately the photos in your post were not available.
Could you send me copies and your opinion of the kit?
I know it was over a year ago, but would really appreciate any advice you could provide!
Thank you, and Cheers!
