    @71chally James I thought right, the last edition of the pilot's notes does have a cutaway drawing. I can scan it at the weekend if you want to see it? John
  4. Rushton Target Towing Winch

    In the back of my mind James I have a feeling I have one. They are/were an amazing bit of kit John

    I've found this one to start with, I will see if I have more at the weekend when I get a chance to get to my library. John
  6. RD.57D-C 1/48 CA B.57 kit bash

    No problem Rob good to have you along, you did miss it, I'm using the Classic Airframes B.57B as the base, it was a tough choice between that and the Airfix kit but the CA kit is better suited to what I need, the down side to that is if it goes wrong it's cost be about twice as much, no pressure John

    Thanks Roger, I really hope i can pull this off! John

    The first pass with the milliput, I think it's starting to look like a D now. John

    I know it's a tough one, in the first B&W photos it definitely looks a much lighter blue but in the other ones much darker and the colour photo mid way down looks very PRU blue, so if it was me I'd go with that. but the light blue looks nice! John

    I found this Roger, I don't know if it helps? It does look PRU blue to me but it's just my guess. http://www.vintagewings.ca/VintageNews/Stories/tabid/116/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/131/Supermarine-Superstar.aspx John
  11. Canberra TT18 question

    No problems Akira, we're glad to be of help! As for the Airfix kit, it sounds like you have the latest re-release of the kit, all the parts need should still be it the box for the B.2 as far as the difference between the B.2 and B.6/B.(I)6, in the kit there isn't too much, all you will need is the B.2 wheel and the engine compressor fan with the short bullet fairing. the rest of the kit will be the same. Again if you take a look at my B.2 build it highlights what you need to do to make it more accurate for a B.2. In reality the differences between the Two Mk's are quite a lot but that needn't concern you for this build. A B.2 for uncle Sam John

    G'day RAL If you take a look on my site I have some photos of the winch in this album http://ipmscanberrasig.webs.com/apps/photos/album?albumid=11149713&pagesize=60&page=1 but if you take a look in the TT.18 album there are more http://ipmscanberrasig.webs.com/apps/photos/album?albumid=12627333 I also have some drawings from AP's.

    Thanks Mario I'd love to do a 1/48 RB/WB.57F but that's a bit beyond my skill set, there was a 1/48 resin kit but at £200 it's a bit steep! I have built three of the Mack2 RB/WB.57F's. It's good to see the three NASA WB.57F's still doing good work. John
