  1. There are templates for fuselage part master (for vacu) and armored glass. I made the upper fuselage part from thin clear sheet using vacuum formihg process. Take in account that P-51B has different engine cowling profile. It rises slightly higher towards winshield in comparison with P-51D, so yo'll need some additional work to blend smoothly the new fuselage top and P-51D cowling.

  2. Hi Antonio, some years ago I started to convert Dragon's P-51D into B model. This work haven't finished yet, but I made some research and drew scale plans for some parts. Here is 1/32 P-51B cockpit. You need just download full size image and print in real size to get 1/32 paper drawing. P51B_cockpitarrangement1 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr
  3. This is lower cowling panel for D-5/D-10/ D-15 models. and this type was introduced on D-20 model. Tamiya's layout represents D-25 and D-30 panels and even such representation is just slightly similar to real thing, so you need to rescribe this section completely.
  4. There are two new versions of discontinued sets. RC4823 instead of RC4817 New PE set PE4820 Su27/30 louvres and meshes intended for these two types only. There will be separate sets for Su-33 and Su-35S versions.
  5. Just for Su-35 or Su-30MKI/SM. They will fit to Hobby Boss plastic with slight modification.
  6. New set of 1/48 vectoring thrust exhausts for Kitty Hawk Su-35 release.
  7. Exactly! BUT... You don't know true sizes of the model. If you take into consideration, that HB fuselage is shorter about 5-6mm at the wing trailing edge, than should be, so the overall proportions will be absolutely different. The HB model is made using 4+ drawing and absobed all the mistakes from it, but the overall shapes are very good, exept front canopy sides, shorter fuselage, more swept trailing edge of fixed wing section and some minor issues.
  8. Hobby boss 1/48 SU-17/22

    Not bad kit. In accuracy aspect - very good shapes generally. One bad thing, that it's made definitely using 4+ drawing, so collected all mistakes from it. They are: wrong windscreen sides shape, fuselage is 5mm shorter somwhere in the wing trailing edge area, wrong angle of the wing fixed section trailing edge (inner flaps sections), some minor surface details mistakes. Overall - much easier to build, then Kitty Hawk, with pretty decent level of details and accuracy model. I like it.
  9. The new product presents full-open nozzles, as we can see on real aircraft shut down engines. The nozzles have correct scale size and fit 1/48 Hobby Boss Su-27 family. There are molded parts as is. The same parts painted to accent details. Nozzle on 1/48 Hobby Boss Su-27. The set will be available in a week.
  10. I don't agree. Trump/boss Su-27 family in all scales has good dimensions, plan view and decent side view, but absolutely wrong fuselage cross sections and jet intakes shape, plus multiple mistakes in small details. It hardly meets "very good" standard.
  11. Looking at their 1/48 and 1/72 Su-27 family, I think you can start work on whole new model. Canopy shape will be odd too. The real thing is more taper at the front.
