  1. AMG 1/72 Bf.109B kit - thoughts, impressions?

    I merely bring the option to the table. The model I saw about ten years back looked okay from what I remember. I'm no accuracy fanatic, especially when it come to the Luftwaffe...
  2. AMG 1/72 Bf.109B kit - thoughts, impressions?

    No, there was definitely another early 109 kit from one of the east European manufacturers, possibly Polish - a friend picked one up in Italy about ten years ago and the resulting model looked better than the Heller kit. For some reason the name Aeroplast keeps coming up in me head. Yep. Definitely Aeroplast and they're still available. A quick search on ebay found these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MESSERSCHMITT-Bf-109-B-SPANISH-AF-LUFTWAFFE-MKGS-1-72-AEROPLAST-/381942062583?hash=item58ed855df7:g:hBAAAMXQVT9S0oWM http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MESSERSCHMITT-Bf-109-C-SPANISH-LUFTWAFFE-MARKINGS-264-1-72-AEROPLAST-/381697317591?hash=item58deeedad7:g:qVEAAMXQydtTN9Q2 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MESSERSCHMITT-Bf-109-D-LEGION-CONDOR-LUFTWAFFE-MARK-1-72-AEROPLAST-RARITAT-/361573244947?hash=item542f71e013:g:1~EAAOSw1vlUtYps And they do a T as well, although I suspect that's the old Face kit. I had the Sword 109D but the rear fuselage looked very small.
  3. AMG 1/72 Bf.109B kit - thoughts, impressions?

    A mate of mine nearly fell over when he heard the price. He's sticking to the old Heller kit and the Avis/Amodel ones. Didn't someone else do a series of early 109s about 15 years ago? One of the small eastern European manufacturers?
  4. What Color are Luftwaffe Cockpits?

    The basic rule of thumb is aircraft produced up to and including a large part of 1940 - RLM02 and then RLM66 afterwards.
  5. Maintrack Project X

    Maintrack's stuff largely went to Martin Blundell at Aardvark/Heritage but he then sold it on to Roger Evans, who set up Whirlybird.
  6. Let's be honest - it's a goldfish bowl canopy Cranberry - it'll sell, irrespective of markings. Looking forward to it.
  7. I have to get one of those! Would look nice in RAF communications colours.
  8. Modelcollect E-75 Walker Panzer

    I just want to know when the Ratte is coming out!
  9. Was in me mate's model shop this morning and he said he'd heard whisper on a few t'interweb forums (Facebook) of a new Vulcan from Airfix next year. Anyone else heard anything?
  10. 105 Sq Mosquito IVs in Day Fighter Scheme ?

    I've a fair reference library on the Mosquito and I can't recall seeing a photo of a B.IV with the sky band, spinners and yellow wing leading edge.
  11. Airfix Henschel Hs 123, 1/72 scale

    Very nice. I've a soft spot for this aircraft and the Airfix kit in particular.
  12. 1/72 Eduard Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IX, VIII and XVI

    Ouch! I'll give that a miss, for now anyway - I can get the "Royal Combo" for less than that!
  13. More on Airfix 2017

    The two closest to me are Team Valley - an absolute pain to get to without a car - and Silverlink, which means a long bus journey through the delights of Wallsend. Personally, I'd rather take a bus through the ruins of Aleppo...
  14. 1/72 Eduard Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IX, VIII and XVI

    I couldn't find it but I'm sure more will be along soon.
  15. Hawker Tempest Mk.V - 1:72 MisterCraft

    You have my condolences - it's a vile build, largely due to the resin wheel bay insert which has a MASSIVE pouring lug which needs excessive sanding to remove and then doesn't fit. I had to sand mine so thin that it was translucent, sand the inside of the wing AND the lower mating surfaces of the wheel bay and it STILL didn't fit. It's rotting in a box somewhere and the two others are waiting to be disposed of.
