  1. Westland Whirlwind wing question.

    Why has no-one mentioned the DH Hornet?
  2. Best Spitfire Mk. Vb in 1/72

    Apart from the canopy, which does not look right, the Tamiya kit is my favourite. I've got the Falcon vac formed canopy set and intend to fit one of these to my next Tamiya. Still Graham's got a point: Why not try out another and see if that will be your next favourite.
  3. Very Interesting SAAF Mustang MkIII

    Hmm, link not available or expired? FB mentions that it may belong to a closed group. /Finn
  4. Getting decals to stick down?

    How long do you soak your transfers? If they are in the water for (too) long, then they loose some of the adhesive and you will have difficulty in getting a snug fit.
  5. Blenheim Nervous Breakdown

    Stamp collection isn't without its moments: You've just recieved the stamp that completes your collection and then you find out it has a flaw and that you have been s.....
  6. Vintage Airfix Kits

    Well, I would not be doing this, building a vintage Airfix model. As I remember, vintage Airfix kits has been surpassed a long time ago and trying to fight one into submission would be a worthless case. The only resonable excuse would be to build one to prove the point, namely that it's not worth the time and effort. Just my 5 cents.
  7. P-51 landing gear

    Going through a couple of Mustang books show a lot of different combinations of gear door droop, flaps up or mostly down. I can see no connection to the radiator position; mostly down but not always.
  8. P-51 landing gear

    Gear doors should be down as pressure bleeds off, however I believe that the flaps were deliberately lowered to prevent damage from people climbing that way up. That way I can argue that my Mustangs has the flap up, as that was what the pilot/crew selected.
  9. P51b Question

    Not a contender; If it weren't for the missing wing pylons, my recommendations would be the KP, and then still, if you could source them from another kit. Hasegawa has the best nose and canopy section, but is way off on the wing kink and the UC bay, but now it's getting complicated with kit bash and stuff.
  10. WW2 pilot figures

    Whatever pilot you choose, make sure that they have seat straps going over the shoulders; I've seen enough flying models with pilots sans straps.
  11. Want to give a AlcladII coated model a clear coat, recommendations?

    Thanks, wasn't aware of this place, but grateful for the help /Finn
  12. Having done the CA-15 Prototype in high gloss aluminium, I find that I'd like to give it a gloss coat to protect the Alclad paint, which I find to be not as durable as wished. /Finn
  13. Allison-Merlin Mustang wing position changes

    IMHO, disregard the Italeri, it's no good at all.
  14. Allison-Merlin Mustang wing position changes

    RE Colins drawings above: A spinner 25", B spinner 29" across, but fuselage depth aft of cockpit unchanged at 66". Interesting...
  15. Allison-Merlin Mustang wing position changes

    I rest my case Clearly there are a lot of knowledgeable members here to correct me when I'm guessing wrong, and thank you for that. What I could use now was a nice little drawing superimposing the Allison and Merlin highbacked fuselages... /Finn
