  1. T-28 Trojan

    Hi, in most cases indeed white moving surfaces but I have also seen greys and even greens on some T-28. Best to search photos of your desired T-28 scheme. Don't know I you already made big progress on your T-28 model, but some ideas and suggestions may be seen at my webpages here: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/t28-32/t28-32-1.htm and for 1/72 kits also check out https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/fennec/fennec.htm Currently working on a couple of 1/72 Sword kits, details will be published within a few weeks. Happy modelling! Meindert

  3. Best 1/32 (Eurofighter) Typhoon?

    I would prefer Revell. Some hints for improving this 1/32 Eurofighter kit can be found on my modelling page here: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/eurofighter/eurofighter-1.htm
  4. Shackleton

    Hi made a comparison of 3 kits January 2016, see my pages here: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/shackleton/shackleton-1.htm Depending on what you want in a kit, pick your kit.

  7. ITALERI 1/32 F-35

    First impressions of the new Italeri F-35A in 1/32 scale can be seen at my webpages here: https://designer.hom...32/f35-32-1.htm I also checked with photos the shapes and looks of the kit and I am impressed. So nothing to stop building this model! (The UK version F-35B with SVTOL would require a new lower and upper fuselage part behind canopy on this Italeri 1/32 kit with some new parts for the rear such as "tilted" engine exhaust) Enjoy Modelling!

  8. Backdating Tamiya 1/72 F-16

    Hi I also am looking at "back dating" the Tamiya F-16 block 50 to an earlier one. Main topics are cockpit interior and HUD, landing gear with thin/thick wheels and bulged doors or not, thoick base tail or not and the various tail fairings. Also, small or big mouth intake. But what I really have to look into yet are the differences in panels and panellines. These vary between blocks and it would be a little wast of effort to change engraved panels on such a good kit. But, still investigation work in progress.... Dozens of the various F-16 models and blocks can be seen at my 1/72 F-16 pages. Here the Tamiya kit page... https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/f16/f16-6.htm Meindert
  9. Academy or Tamiya 1/32 F-16

    Hi made all 1/32 F-16 kits, check out my findings at: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/F16-32/f16-32.htm What you would possible need depends on subject and your wallet! Meindert
  10. Hi Gaz (kiwitrogg) , that's really nice that you actually worked there in that hangar! The "world in internet" is small
  11. Hi for all that want to know more about this question..... the discussion is seen in this thread.. See posts dated around December 29, 2016 Thanks for all info supplied, and indeed the Airfix kit scheme looks correct as the XL512 was also modified to B2.R standard and even later on into a K2 tanker!
  12. An extensive review of the new Airfix HP Victior B.2(BS) has been published on the IPMS Nederland website. Check out our English language report at: http://www.ipms.nl/artikelen/recensies/vliegtuigen-militair/2474-airfix-hp-victor-engels.html We have also made a comparison with that good old Matchbox kit. Merry Christmas from IPMS Nederland! Meindert de Vreeze
  13. Regarding Dutch and Belgian F-16

    As noted above by Hook / Andre at first delivery the Dutch F-16A/B had no extended parachute base fairings (as thus is early Hasegawa kit). Later a modication program had the Dutch F-16 fleet get the long parachute housing (as thus in the later Revell kits). You may check out my various 1/72 F-16 models made at: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/f16/f16-1.htm
