  1. A good question. French machines were not delivered to the France mainland and they were in storage for some time in Martinique (a French territory in Caribbean) then scrapped . In 1942 one US Marines flight (VFM 151) was equipped with this kind of airplane in Samoa island. Some five ex-French were delivered to UK but never use operational. A full story is in Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curtiss_SBC_Helldiver Cheers J-W
  2. My collection

    Interesting duo! Can you post some day-light photo as well? Cheers J-W
  3. Do you mind to see also that one agaiin to, by the occasion of conversion to Flickr? J-W
  4. I came to almost end of rescueing my threads from bucket crisis - currently it is from A to end of P. The PZL 43 is announced now by IBG (1/72) to be available in some future...In 1/48 it is available from couple of years by Mirage. Cheers J-W
  5. DH9A.....

    Interesting project. What scale it is? I am going to do reverse - from 9A to 9 in 1/72... Cheers J-W
  6. Hi I just converted this thread to Flickr. It is a 4 pages thread with really many photos... It took me only 2 hours! I hope that some people would like to look at this doing own model of Polikarpov R-Z or R-5, so this time was not lost... Cheers J-W
  7. 1/72 Revell B-17 F

    Very nice result indeed! The photos are a bit heavy, takes time to open... I like your Olive Drab - what exactly it is? Regards J-W
  8. Gents, many thanks for your comments. John, I like that biplane, it is a very nice kit. I have this one on my shelvs done some 37-39 years ago, but without riging ... I am planning to made small adment to it, especially add riging....Then I hope to post it also. Cheers J-W
  9. Many thanks - after years. I rescued it now from a bucket crisis.... Regards J-W
  10. Gents, many thanks for your comments Regards J-W
  11. I made first look at Delta 2 kit of SM 55X against some drawings (also for Sm 55X). Well - what to say? - I've seen before some kits which fit to drawings in a better way... The floats are about 3-4 mm to shalow (low). The boms have therefore a bit wrong angle...And some surface is sunk... This is for first look at. There will be more fun! Regards J-W
  12. I hope at least some new memebers will not blame me for returning this thread to RFI as a by effect of rescueing old threads...(...bucket to flickr) Regards J-W
  13. Very nice result indeed! By the way - it is sometimes interesting to notice that those evenets happend only some 20 years after end of WWII, so very similar time difference like the time like end of XX century from now.... Invader look a bit obsolate in mid sixties - so in Vietnam war along F 105 and F4, whereas the same F 16 and B1B were flying in 1995 and now. Not telling a word about B-52... - which are more than 50 years old....Does it means that we are in very peaceful times since progress in weapons is very slow? Cheers J-W
