If anyone cares for my

If anyone cares for my opinion, I'm OK with such a review once in a while. It shows a fine, really nice looking model. And as Josh mentioned, it's a japanese model kit. CDX accepts model kits, as Gundams and SRW show. Hell, we even accept Lego and Mega Bloks, which also produce a variety of "real-themed" items. Just because you don't see them that much around doesn't mean they would be banned, because, let's face it, they are still toys, and as far as I can tell, CDX IS about toys :)

While model classic planes

While model classic planes aren't my cup of tea, I think they're very much in the "spirit" of Collection DX. I however admit that the review should probably just focus on the model itself and a little less on the history of the aircraft and those who flew it.

[enthusiast pantomimes shooting himself in the head] Good review, Leo. I like learning new things, and the model's a beaut.

You should see my uncle,

You should see my uncle, he's making such things (and cars, tanks, etc) from PAPER. And you can't even tell without touching it :D I need to convince him to give me some for gallery purpose :)

paper Models

My friend at work loves paper models, and every week he's always showing me some great Gundam, Miyazaki or Sci-Fi paper models. I agree... amazing stuff!!!

Guns, guns, guns...

Just a touch of pedantry, the guns aren't "50mm" or "30mm" but ".30 calibre" or ".50 calibre". .30 calibre is a World war II rifle bullet, 50mm would be about an early war tank gun! (later in the war, some aircraft did use guns of that size, mostly in the anti-tank or anti-bomber role).

Definitely an interesting

Definitely an interesting review Mod! I can really tell you have a passion for this stuff and it's fascinating to read. I've always wanted to get into military model kits but I just don't have the patience or the still to pretty them up very well. I'll just have to stick with model kits it seems...

And I for one am all for reviews that are out of the flow of what's reviewed on this site. It's still a toy, and it's clear that there's the same amount of passion in the subject that let's say I have for anything that's from Super Robot Wars.

is this a comment record,
I got like 2 last thing i did...even bad comments are better than nothing...guess I have to do a model...maybe the Japanese Yamato model by aoshima...also Like Nekro dave's idea. when we write something, we tell Josh it is ready and he posts at set intervals. Would not bother me to have an article wait to be posted and would be cool to not see it on page 2 a day later...
