  1. Trumpeter Tu-95

    Try here: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10061679 My go-to site for instructions, especially those from East Asia. http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/plamo/
  2. T-28 Trojan

    That looks very nice, Meindert.
  3. visual differences betweeen A-7A/B/C & E?

    Yes, all on the same side.
  4. Best BP Defiant in 1:72?

    Make sure you aren't getting the old Airfix kit! That one originated around 1960.
  5. F-5 freedom fighter wing tanks

    You'll spend a lot more than a pound for those wingtip tanks. If you really want a good 1/72 F-5A/B check out the ESCI kit (I don't know if it's been released by Italeri or not), it's definitely the nicest F-5A/B in 1/72 scale. For the F-5E/F look for the Italeri (also marketed by Testors) kits.
  6. RNZAF Meteor T.7 Cyprus 1952-55

    And now for something completely different… That sure is an oddball, I'd be interested to see how this came about, too. The squadron color maybe?
  7. F-11 Fuel/ Indication 100

    F11 sounds like the NATO designation for a particular variety of Jet Fuel. Not sure about 100, Octane maybe, if it's at a field that services piston-engine aircraft.
  8. 1/48 Airfix Lightning. Resin F6 cockpit in an F1

    As long as you're happy with the substitution I say go for it. There's not a lot of people out there who would know the difference. You wouldn't get dinged at a (properly run) contest either.
  9. Options for a FJ-4 in 1/72

    IMO, the Emhar kit looked a lot like a Matchbox kit. The moldings definitely had that look to them, even the sprue attachment points and the spring frames themselves. The Emhar kit did have (quite prominent) raised panel lines, unlike those made by the Matchbox "trench digger" to whom much criticism was directed.
  10. S-58/UH-34 question

    The Israelis didn't use the S-58s with the turbo-shaft engines. Just the piston-engine variant.
  11. A First from Me (I know, late to the party, as ever)

    Looks very sharp and clean to me, nicely done.
  12. Revell 2018

    Is the Camel the old Monogram, nee Aurora kit? Eduard? New mold?
  13. AEROPOXY 1:48 Folland Gnat F.1 / HAL Ajeet

    Airfix has given us a very ice Gnat Trainer, would that they'd do the single-seater as well, with parts for the Ajeet, too, of course…
  14. 1/48 Chinook Engine Filters

    Cobra Company molds and masters now belong to Mike West of Lonestar Models. http://www.lonestarmodels.com/index.html He's releasing sets as he gets to them.
  15. Best Aerospatiale Gazelle in 48 sc is...?

    I see the Fujimi kit pop up on eBay more often than I see the Heller kit.
