  1. Wildcat/Martlet 1/48 windscreen needed

    Hello Fernando, thanks a lot for your reply. Yes I saw that Rob Taurus are very nice and I were following one on ebay. This very morning a modeller friend at work gave me a vac one !

  2. Wildcat/Martlet 1/48 windscreen needed

    Hello, I am building a long conversion to realize a Mk I early Martlet/G36A starting from an Hobby Boss early Wildcat in 48 scale. I have already modified the wings, all the upper and lower panelling, the gun openings, the engine, its cowl, the front fuselage and other details. Now I noticed that the windscreen got a front hole for the tube gunsight and also the two side frames. I wonder if anyone has a spare windscreen coming from the subsequent boxes with - at least - an holeless front glass. TIA all the best Maurizio

I have found some reproduction online and google isn't my friend this time.... I would like to know if a wartime or a genuine relic/pictures exist just to know the colours and material used.

  5. Hurricane Mk I 5 spoke wheels needed 1/32 scale

    Hello and thank you so much for your kind replies. I digged in my spare box and found both Tamiya spitfire hubs and two 5 spoke wheels a bit larger than the spit ones. At this point what was the measurement for overall diameter and width of the wheel please ? Maybe the ones I've found are ok !
  6. Hello, I am near completion of my Fly 1/32 Mk I Hurricane painted in finnish markings. The problem is that my example -along others- was equipped with 5 spoke wheels and the kit provides only 3 spoke ones. Where I can find decent resin/plastic wheels ? What brand makes them in 32 scale with a good detail ? TIA Ciao Maurizio

  10. B.P. Defiant L7006 PS-X wheel bay colour

    Hello and thanks a lot for your kind replies. I have already painted my model kit but I still have the opportunity to change wheel bay colour. My further question is about the gear legs. In some pics they appear with a black main leg and silver fork...in others they seems to be overall silver. Airfix suggests a black main leg and retraction rods with a silver fork and wheel hubs. Is it right ? Tia Maurizio
  11. B.P. Defiant L7006 PS-X wheel bay colour

    Hello I am building the Airfix 1/48 Defiant in PS-X markings in the battle of France period. I assume that at that time her undersurfaces were white/black with undersurfaces of engine and tail boom in silver. I would like to ask if in this scheme the ailerons were reverted colours or not. And wheels bay ? Which colour was ? Half b/w ? Silver ? TIA Ciao Maurizio

  14. Hello Maurizio,

    Do you have any of the 1/144 Royal Italian Navy Submarine Alagi resin kits available. If you do, what is the price of the kit and approximate cost, for sending to my address, here in the United Kingdom.


    Many thanks,

    Michael M

  15. Hello I come across a particular picture included in the book Me109G-6 Suomen Ilmavoimien Historia 6 by Stenman/Keskinen showing one of the finnish Me109 G-6 with an unusual additional lower instrument panel, fitted between the two lower side "horns". The caption says it was fitted with the FuG16 device and also the breaker panel on the right hand side of the cockpit seems to be more busy than usual. I recognize a compass in the middle and perhaps a turn/slip indicator on the left, but what about the dual gauge instrument on the right ? And what was present at the extreme left ? My attention was also captured by a strange gauge on top of the engine cannon cover...what is this ? Are there any other pics of such equipped Me 109 ? TIA Ciao Maurizio
