  1. All the B-25B/C/D questions you wanted to ask

    Can you build a RAF Mitchell III from the box contents without surgery/modifications? I hope to pick up my Airfix kit soon and have a soft spot for the Invasion Stripes as seen on RAF Mitchells. I'm aware there will be a RAF boxing from Airfix - later this year - but just can't wait and have decals already.
  2. 1/72 Valom - North American B-45A

    Looks a bit like a 'plump duck' due to it's shapes, but you made a really nice model, Patrick!
  3. Another amazing model kit from your dad's factory. I really like the colorful tailband!
  4. 1/48 Airfix P-51D Diablo

    Very inspiring build, top-notch paint job, and super attractive markings!
  5. LF Thoughts on Sword 1/72 Fiat G.55 Centauro 2 in 1 release

    Here's my build review of the Sword Fiat G.55.
  6. LF Thoughts on Sword 1/72 Fiat G.55 Centauro 2 in 1 release

    An aftermarket resin set as well as a vacu canopy had been sold on Sword's stand @ Modelbrno 2017, when the kit was presented. This was from another (cottage industry) manufacturer though, not from Sword themselves. It contains air intake, seat and wheels. The quality of the vacu was rather poor with ill-defined outlines, and it took me three attempts (and canopies) to produce a single piece I could use. I am currently abroads and far away from my workbench, but will happily give you more details about the manufacturer and his name and website once I'm back home - which will be in 3 weeks, so please bear with me. (I used the resin pieces and canopy on my 2017 build of this kit which you can find in my "2017 Yearbook" gallery - if that is of any help.)
  7. No they did not plate them over - that what makes the new Airfix kit the best rendition in 72 scale (in my humble opinion). (Look out for a detailled build review in the upcoming March edition of SAMI.) Roman

    Special Hobby that is, Graham. However it does not appear on their 'news' list.

    All good now, January SAMI was in my postbox on Tuesday evening.
  14. B-17F in 1/72 - options?

    I can recommend the new Revell 1/72 B-17F, it's a wonderful model kit and goes together without issues: With kind regards from Vienna Roman

    Oh, well ... I signed up for subscription @ PlasticWinter Bratislava last November. December edition was delivered on time. The January edition (scheduled for release December 27th) never arrived. Wrote to the publishing house (about 10 days ago) and received this answer: "Recently we changed consolidators who ship the mail due to the 40% rise in Royal mail postage. Unfortuantely in order NOT to pass on a very high rise in price to customers, it does take a bit longer to get to you. Please allow a few more days, especially with the Christmas post to get to you and let me now. "
