    Lockheed F-117-A 'Nighthawk', 1:33 scale, from Halinski

    Hi Dave,

    Actually, I got a mail from Ralf Schnurbusch at Lighthouse today saying that "Unfortenatly is the item Nighthawk from Halinski not on the market anymore, although the website indicate a stock, but this was an error."
    So, back to square one, I guess . . .

    Best,
    Bengt:cry:

    Lockheed F-117-A 'Nighthawk', 1:33 scale, from Halinski or GPM

    Hi again, Dave,

    Well, I had a look at cardmodelshop.com but I couldn´t find the 'Nighthawk' there either - neither Halinski nor GPM responded to my search.
    It seems this card model has vanished into thin air...

    Hi friends,

    I took a look at moduni homepage in germany !!

    There was the note "as long as stock lasts".
    So I ordered 3 !! If you want, I will send the kits to you. The price was 16,50 € plus 3,90 shipping.
    I don`t want to have a profit I will grant you with the kits at cost .

    Now I`ll start for hilodays, I`ll be back at the 22.4. if you want a kit tell me !!

    best FLU

    Bengt Fredén,
    That's interesting. I just checked my pending order and it listed as the F-117 from Halinski. It said it had a few left. I probaly got the last one. Rick I did not know it would come from New Jersey. I thought this was a polish site. Show's what I know some days. FLU should I get the same message that it's out of stock I will let you know. I would like to have this bad boy. Now I just have to build it. Okay Rick. I got an e-mail from Robert Marek. I did not know that was his site. I guess I need to check it out a little better. Well I had better get back to work before my empolyee's find me slacking off. It's been a quite day.

    Nighthawk - A True 'Stealth' Publication . . .

    Hi FLU,

    Thanks - that´s a very kind offer! If you get the models and are willing to share one with me, I´m interested. Just drop me a message when you get back from your holiday and we´ll arrange something.

    Thanks again for your consideration!
    Have a good holiday!

    best regards,

    I'm Polish but live in NJ for the last 13 years, so the website is made in U.S.

    Lockheed F-117 'Nighthawk' from Halinski - Back on Track!

    Hi popala,

    Thanks for the tip - you were absolutely right. They had the Nighhawk from Halinski in stock (at least so it seems at the moment...),
    so I ordered one copy.

    Keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best . . .

    Bengt :-D

    Hey Guys,

    I just got one off ebay. So you might want to keep tabs there for models that are no longer in-stock or available from the fine internet sellers/shops we have.

    Nighthawk in Short Supply?

    Hi all,

    I just got a friendly mail from Mr. Schnurbusch at Lighthouse Model Art in Canada. He was interested to know where I had obtained my copy of the Halinski 'Nighthawk' card model.
    So I referred him to the Card Model Shop, which seems to be well stacked up with all kinds of publishers and card models, and also to our Forum, so that he will see the urgent need for this particular model.
    Let´s hope he joins us in our discussions!

    John,
    You´re absolutely right about that - sometimes there are some really good finds and treats to be found on the Web!

    Keeping all channels open from now on,
    Bengt:cool:

    Waiting for the Nighthawk to come. . .

    Hi fluthecrank and all other F-117 builders,

    Well, it´s been over two weeks now, and I´m eagerly awaiting the Halinski model from Paper Model Store. But I guess it´s going to take a while, from the US to Sweden (by surface mail).

    While I´m waiting, here´s another 'stealth' project, that might be a fine card model build, too, although it has many rounded areas and details.
    Has anyone tried building the B-2 'Spirit' / 'Sabre Penetrator' strategic long-range bomber?

    I´ve tried to find a 'ready-made' card model, but I haven´t found one so far.
    Here´s a very informative page on this boomerang-looking stealth airplane:

    Bengt,

    Shay has been selling the IAF magazine B-2 bomber. I believe his username is shay.c4. I got mine this week, and it looks quite good. It will be a scan/recolor job, (I think it is to blue as printed). I would have no problem
    buying from him again. You might try pm'ing him to see if he can find you one.

    B-2 'Spirit' Bomber

    Howdy, Texman!

    Mighty thankful for that tip, Ray! She´s a purdy bird, ain´t she?
    I´ll try to PM Shay and see if he has one more copy. I´d love to build a card model of this one . . .

    best,

    B-2 Bomber (And Nighthawks for Comparison)

    Hi all,

    Yes, Shay (shay.c4) has got the B-2 bomber in stock, and a list of other interesting planes, from the Israeli Air Force magazine, as well.
    The B-2 is $6 + $4 for shipping (PayPal) - a very fair price.

    Just look at this 'bird' - could be right out of "Star Trek" or "Star Wars", wouldn´t you agree? And the size of the thing - here in comparison with two escorting Lockheed F-117A 'Nighthawks', to 'steer' us back to fluthecrank´s thread again . . :

    I would just like to say the pictures really show the detail of the model, and the ability of the builder. I wish half my projects turned out as nice.

    The Halinski models have had English instruction for a while, and they can really be a help at times.

    Lockheed F-117A 'Nighthawk'

    Hi Jason,

    I just looked at your site. Do you have both the Halinski and the GPM Lockheed F-117A 'Nighthawk' in stock, for delivery?
