  1. Meng 1/48 F-35A

    Hi VP, I'll go with the masks. I'm far too good at ruining decals... S.
  2. Revell 1/48 Tornado ADV

    I hope Revell provides accurate Sidewinder missiles in the kit. That was standard loadout... Cheers, S.
  3. Early bath for a Buccaneer ;)

    Hi Chris, The hot water dunk isn't necessary. Start glueing the fuselage parts at a trailing side, then work your way around the fuselage by glueing inch by inch and letting the glue cure every time. You should be alright in the end. Cheers, S.
  4. Revell 1/48 Tornado ADV

    Absolutely none.
  5. Well, a lot, but probably less than KH's offering with all the AM correction sets, so...
  6. Kitty Hawk Su-34 1/48 - render - March

    If I understand correctly our slightly unevenly-keeled policeman, I'd say KittyHawk is Šulc-ing... S.
  7. B-52D windows question

    These are exactly the windows I was talking about, thanks! So I'll have to do something looking like the rest area... Cheers, S.
  8. B-52D windows question

    Hi, There are two windows (one on each side) on the B-52D fuselage, just rearward of the in-flight refuelling installation. AFAIK, there's no window in the EWO positin, so can anybody tell me what's beneath those windows? I can't find any picture or plan explaining that. TIA, Sébastien
  9. Meng Missiles & Bombs 1/48

    I want British ordnance!
  10. I don't but I'd start growing an extra kidney, if I were you.
  11. Just like I did. I ordered two, they arrived in the same box. No question asked. S.
  12. Hi Tom, Here you go.. Engine nacelles: Fin, tanks, rear end (bobbitized or not) and various lumps and bumps: Specific metal bits: Please take the plunge! S.
  13. And now for something entirely... big. The ruler above the parts is 50 cm long (20 inches for you who are metrically challenged). The fuselage is (big) in 4 main (big) parts: The first sheet has the wheel well roofs (rooves?) as well as the cockpit floor, while the second has the bomb bay roof, the main wheel doors and some bulkheads. The fin is (guess what) big, and the fuel tanks are quite impressive in their own right, thank you very much. There's a radome for some version of the B-52 I still have to identify (it's pretty well described in the instructions), and we get the fuselage tip where the .50 barrels will go: Tailplanes and everything engine nacelle related: The lower wings and the wheels: The upper wings and some more bulkheads: Transparencies (there are some air bubbles in the cockpit transparencies, I think I'll redo them): And all the (heavy) metal bits: The four bits in the upper right corner are the .50 cals. I think I'll replace them. I intend to replace the engine turbine faces (is there somewhere a nice J57 turbine face I could duplicate in resin?). I'm not much of a fan of the seats either, and I'll have to scratchbuild them. Don't laugh at me, that's the bit that worries me most, I can't figure out why. I don't think my pa beat me up with an aircraft seat when I was a kid, so if anybody got an explanation... So what can I say? It's bloody big. The fuselage needs rescribing, as do the wings (thoug to a lesser extent) when the tailplanes and the rudder are alright. Go figure. There will be quite a lot of work involved (well, it's a shortr-run vac, so no surprise there), but I think this is one of Gerald's finest efforts and should become one hell of a head turner on any show table. When I have a moment, I'll open my B-52H box and check for the differences. Cheers, S.
  14. Well, a couple of B-52s just landed here. I just have to find a table big enough to take pics and you'll have a review. Cheers, S.
