  1. F-4K (FG.1) on Ark Royal lift

    Excellent Jun, Just what I was looking for. Many thanks.
  2. F-4K (FG.1) on Ark Royal lift

    Hello With the forthcoming Airfix kit, I thought it might be fun to pose one with everything folded on Ark's lift, just as it was coming up to deck level. The only problem is I can't find a picture anywhere to work from. Can anybody point me in the right direction? Thanks
  3. Alpha jet Dorsal fin extension

    Here is a Toglolese one with a fin extension made by Meindert on his website.
  4. Airfix 1/72 Phantom FG1

    Well gentlemen, fascinating though this debate is, I have ordered 6 of the kits and I will give my comments once I have actually built one.
  5. P51b Question

    Didn't Airfix do one as well? I don't know enough about the P-51 to rate it.
  6. C-160 Transall Revell 1:220

    If that is the ex-Heller 1:220 Transall then that is a very fine build.
  7. Phantom FGR2

    Did UK F-4s have strengthening strips on the stabilators? I don't recall seeing them, but it might be my faulty memory. I do remember plates fitted to USAF F-4 stabilators.
  8. Detailing a 1:72nd RAF Phantom FG.1

    Make a Fujimi Phantom, then an Airfix Phantom, then lots more Fujimi & Airfix Phantoms - you can never have too many British Phantoms!
  9. To stencil, or not to stencil? - Two NMF Spits

    That's me, and it is!
  10. F-16AM and BM Romanian Air Force

    I never did understand the roundel on the fin, even on MiG 21s. They always looked like a model a kid had made and got the transfers wrong. But to each their own.
  11. What Stashed Aircraft Should I Work On?

  12. Tamiya 1/72 SU-34 OOTB build

    I'm sorry I missed this thread earlier. The Italeri kit (for that is what this Tamiya kit is) can be easily fixed as shown here by Ken Duffey. I am just finishing one and I also encountered the nozzle problem. I overcame it by clamping the rear fuselage onto the nozzle's flange, cementing it and leaving it overnight which solved the problem. The obvious things wrong with this kit are the tail boom is too long (by 6mm) and the tailfins are too tall (they should be the same size as a single seater). Fortunately both easily remedied.
  13. Sukhoi S-27UB

    Hook is correct. I was referring to the medium blue/dark blue scheme found on some Su-27SMs. Certainly not the aubergine scheme,
  14. Sukhoi S-27UB

    Two questions. 1. Does the Russian Air Force still opertae the Su-27UB twin seater? 2. If the answer to 1 is yes, does the Russian Air Force operate any of them in that interesting 2 blues camouflage that some of the Su-27SMs are finished in? Thanks for looking.
  15. Begemot Decals

    Seconded - they are very good and considering the number of options on each sheet, good value for money.
