  1. SWORD releasing 1/73 FJ Furys

    Here are the instruction. FJ-3 http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10483319 FJ-3M http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10483321 Robert
  2. More details here with instructions FJ-3 http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10483319 FJ-3M http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10483321 Shame the red stripes do not come with the 3M and has to be masked and painted. Robert
  3. A-4B skyhawk

    Book coming out in the future about the Scooter ?
  4. North American FJ-2 Fury

    Another great set of photos . Strange that they did not have the barrier things on the slats. Hopefully a decal manufacturer is taking notes. Robert
  5. From Tamiya new lacquer paints in 10ml bottles https://tamiyablog.com/2017/10/the-long-awaited-new-product-tamiya-color-lacquer-paint-in-bottles-appears/ and from Mr Paint a new range of water based acrylics http://mrpaint.sk/farby/Aqua colors . The Mr Paint ones look interesting for me as they are not smelly like lacquer based paints. Robert
  6. A-4B skyhawk

    It is from VA-72 Blue Hawks. It seems that some `Hawks' were of a light blue and some of a darker one. Have a look here http://a4skyhawk.info/article-unit/va72 . The stripe along side the fuselage appears to be of a darker blue. Hope that helps. Regards Robert
  7. 72nd scale VIGGEN

    That looks very promising. I see there is the 2 seat version, will there also be a recce version coming as well ? Robert
  8. North American FJ-2 Fury

    It looks like to me that the wing insignia is smaller so that it does not overlap onto the slats. Robert
  9. That has come out very nice.
  10. Airfix 2018

    If Airfix decide to go for something smaller and 1/72 l would like to see the Meteor night fighter series to finally put the Matchbox one to bed. I am hoping that the announcement is 1/72 post war jet either a fighter or bomber. Robert
  11. Airfix 2018

    It seems to suggest on their Facebook page that the MiG-15 was there whilst they were doing other stuff. Robert
  12. Looking at Thunder and Lightning http://www.thunder-and-lightnings.co.uk/phantom/history.php was there any talk of any other front line Royal Navy Phantom squadrons apart from 892 ? TIA Robert
