  1. You know how to use "Flight Archives", right? https://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1933/1933 - 0747.html https://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1934/1934 - 0640.html https://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1934/1934 - 0653.html https://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1935/1935 - 0570.html https://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1933/1933 - 0837.html
  2. In Poch we trust! Then it became clear what WHL demolition is imminent I bought a ticket and saw one if the last games there. Back to the topic - is anyone aware if Sanger repack any different I'm kind of itching to buy Perth for myself but not sure if I should put my hand on Sanger or it's better to find original Contrail kit
  3. Have you seen this? http://modelism.airforce.ru/reviews/ru/il-4/index.htm You can read the language, I assume. Some inaccuracies of Revell (Plasticart) kit are mentioned so may be useful (unless it's too late)
  4. C'mon - Contrail Vacforms are fun! Believe me - struts and rigging is just a tiny fraction of efforts. Mostly it is about dry fitting, sanding, puttying and sanding again
  5. Dude, you are a brave man!
  6. Vickers Vimy - accuracy of Frog kit

    I have done a homework - compared it with WindSock drawings. FROG's Vimy represents Alcock and Brown's machine that was modified for the Atlantic flight, it requires some surgery to reduce the length of a hump on the spine and reposition tail gunner windows and opening that are way too aft: Navigator/bomb aiming window is also missing I fixed that with a plasticard and pieces of old "hump": Wingspan is fine, One would also need to fight "starwing cow" and add missing leading edge ribs and missing hatches, panels, tank plugs etc. Engine nacelles also need correction to fill in niches. Interiour is non-existent, I used Alley Cat kit as a reference Of course, you would need to add a lot of smaller details as the kit is quite primitive but it may be a good starting point. Eventually you can get something like this: More pics and WiP were: I seems like the pictures have gone but most of them are still visible in this WiP (in Russian) http://scalemodels.ru/modules/forum/viewtopic.php?t=41384 I also wrote an arcticle (in Russian) with a gist of building process with all modifications explained: http://scalemodels.ru/articles/6966-Novo-Frog-1-72-Vickers-Vimy---sovsem-ne-strashnyjj.html
  7. Hm, cockpit/cabin windows too? I haven't seen twosix making photodecals
  8. What decals did you use? What paints? How would you rate the kit in general?
  9. It is based on Otaki kit, so better than Airfix/Revell, worse (but much cheaper) than Authentic Airliners
  10. Tony, I want to congratulate you with outstanding debut in GB host role - well done! I would also like to congratulate all the participants - that was fun, and although I haven't finished (well, just started) my Valkyrie
  11. Of course, I'm ready to contribute P.S. This was an answer to a legitimate (I.M.O.) question if I'm ready to pay for additional storage.
  12. This raises the old question - why can't we host the photos ourselves as most of modelling resources do? AWS storage is cheap, Invision has all the means of uploading/managing photos, maybe it's time to reconsider old policies?
  13. Newly scribed panel lines
