  1. Hasegawa Spitfire 1/48

    Fuselage is short, don't remember the exact length but recall somewhere around 5mm. 2mm I front of the cockpit and the rest in they rear fuselage (two places iirc). There are (were?) replacement fuselages available to rectify this issue
  2. Yet to be announced.....

    No, I would rather have a Tempest.
  3. Is this Typhoon scheme legit?

    Don't know if this helps No sky spinner though https://www.facebook.com/worldwarincolor/photos/a.393169424146189.1073741828.393166910813107/1348886321907823/?type=3&theater

  6. Airfix 1/48 Junkers Ju87B-1 Stuka - the new one

    I don't mind the rivets but that apparent sink mark at the base of the rudder with the rivets running through will be very difficult to rectify and keep the rivet detail. Oh well resin replacement will solve that but should not of happened in the first place. And this is one of the moulded in the UK kits is it not?
  7. More on Airfix 2017

    Maybe it will shrink in the wash before release

  9. Revell Two-Seat 262 1/32

    Found this RAF Museum Hendon, seems like some sort of strengthening strip applied to hold door to support. Now whether that is during restoration or OEM fit is another question http://www.wildaviation.com/gallery3/index.php/Military-Museums/British-Museums/RAF-Hendon/2013/RAF-Museum-Hendon-2013-Me-262-CP5O5336
  10. Revell Two-Seat 262 1/32

    Unfortunately the extent Me262B-1 located in South Africa is missing the main wheel doors so I cannot confirm the accuracy of Revell's depiction Herewith a link to my walk around of the South African 262 http://www.wildaviation.com/gallery3/index.php/Walkarounds/wwii/Me262-Nightfighter
  11. 1970's - Kits that came with a picture frame???

    If my non existent memory is correct it may of been Frog that did them.

  15. THIS is how it started, 1957

    Oh how I wanted one of those as a young modeller back in the early '70's. My local hobby shop just never seemed to get them in stock, or if they did they never stayed on the shelves long enough to be seen. Then one day I managed to get one only to find that there was no canopy in the kit. No, I did not return it or even send off to Airfix for a replacement as how could I get IRC's to do so? Maybe I should find one for nostalgic reasons. Hmm, Airfix kits have changed a bit since then.
