  1. As a teenager I was a fanatic scale modeller, but when I bought my first PC in the mid-'90s my scale modelling was pushed to the background as I focused more on my illustrator ambitions. I always intended to return to scale modelling and last year I made some initial steps by illustrating a couple of box tops for Tan Model (1/48 RF-84F re-release and 1/72 T-33A Limited Edition kits). Currently I'm taking it one step further as I'm in the process of designing an actual scale model conversion kit. It's a commission by Spitfire display pilot Espen Tjetland from Norway, who is a great fan of the Buchons in the "Battle of Britain" movie. This kit will allow conversion of a 1/32 Hasegawa Messerschmitt Bf 109 G kit into an accurate Buchon. Both "Battle of Britain" movie star and Spanish Air Force variants are planned, as well as other models and other scales in the long run. 3D photo scanning, measurements of actual aircraft and Me 109 engineering plans are used to ensure absolute accuracy and to capture the Buchon's iconic grin (love it or hate it!). Work-in-progress on the 3D design: Pre-prototype 3D prints of the first major parts for test-fitting against the donor kit. The final printing quality will be of higher quality. Prints and photos by SBS Model from Hungary. More to come! Cheers, Ronnie Olsthoorn
  2. Hello! Here in Sweden we do have (currently just one) a flying Spitfire, owned by cheap autopart chain store Biltema. Old news probably, but it's very nice to have it buzzing around in the sky here One thing that I cannot shake from my mind, is why the cannon fairings are placed the way they are. Picture by my coworker Erik Norberg, used with permission: Supermarine Spitfire Mk XVI by ednorberg, on Flickr Since RW386 ist stated to be a LF Mk XVIe , that would mean a .50-cal in the inner cannon position, but they never had a fairing except for the small stub, right? So why the semi-long fairing then? //Christer
