    I have only contacted Revell once, it was some time ago but I didn't get my replacement part because I couldn't prove where I bought it. I had a similar experience with Italeri and didn't get the part because they said they were out of stock. On the few times I've had a problem with an Airfix kit they've always delivered - quickly.

    Thank you Jerzy!! My great-grandfather was Polish and I really like Polish aviation. About color formulation, I used this follow process: - Alclad base; - Pre-shadow on the lines with Natoblack; - Panels, I used this Tamiya formulation XF-52:4 + XF-3:2+ XF-51:1 + XF-2:1: - And Polish khaki, I used this Tamiya formulation XF-52:1 + XF64:1 + XF-2:1 This IBG kit is fantastic and I will definitely build others. Cheers!

    IIRC, the Do-17, Do-215, and Do-217 had ailerons that drooped slightly when the flaps were extended, soooo if Shelliecool can drop the flaps, he's good to go! Easier, though, as you have said, would be to deflect one aileron up and the other down. Mike

    Oh look, a Tempest

    Do they mean first flight in 2035 or operational?! Regardless, going by looks alone it will surely be obsolete by then.

    Wow! All are very, very nice builds, but the P-40E and F-84G are the class of the field, in my opinion! Mike
  13. Motorizing your kit really brings it to life! With an MP3 player, you could easily add sound, adding to your display!
  14. Great looking model Lloyd another one to go along with the theme, what will be up next, Regards Richard
  15. I think that maybe because the RNZAF roundels appear to have been painted in a lighter shade of blue than the RAF roundels, some decal makers have interpreted this as being a faded blue and produced their decals accordingly. I would think that having very faded national insignia would not be very wise in a combat area, and thus would tend to be repainted when necessary. I see a lot more photos of very faded and well-used RNZAF Corsairs with freshly painted roundels than vice versa. Good point, Alan! Mike

    Absolutely supurb, I especially like the Spit...
  17. Excellent little 504N, JW! I've always wanted to do a Greek one - I believe they were still in service at the beginning of the Second World War also. What some people may not know is that a few 504s were impressed into RAF service during the Second World War. Your 16th model?! I won't even say how many I've completed so far this year... Regards, Jason

    UK unveils new next generation fighter jet.

    The Su-57 are arriving

    This is a wrong opinion. I believe you are in the trap of stereotypes that the Russian Federation is a small Soviet Union where instead of the Communist party Soviet - United Russia party, which only thinks with the rest of the inhabitants, it would conquer the whole world. In fact, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the troubled wave of the 90s pushed many dealers to the surface who are not at all interested in the future of their state, and the main task of which is to steal as much money as possible, to flee to the west and there to make themselves an opossizer to the current regime. In many respects, the echoes of the 1990s led to similar consequences: https://bmpd.livejournal.com/3271027.html https://colonelcassad.livejournal.com/3706405.html e.t.c. Therefore, there are no significant ideological contradictions between the West and the Russian Federation in the form in which they existed between the USSR and the rest of the world. The situation now more corresponds to the period that was before the outbreak of World War I. Therefore, all the contradictions can be described by the phrase from the fable L. Krylov: "You are guilty only of that I want to eat". At the same time, there is one problem that does not allow us to conduct the Cold War-2 for 40 years as it was with the Cold War. It's problem - China who intends, according to their statements, to become a new world superpower by 20-30 years by pushing the United States. Such redistribution of world spheres of influence usually accompanies the world war. If I am right in my, unfortunately pessimistic forecasts, it is quite self explanatory for the low priority of the Su-57 program. It simply does not have time for it. Is it possible to repeat the situation with both I-185 and Su-6 during the war years! Good aircraft with very worthy characteristics, but to break the conveyor producing massively IL-2 and different Yak did not. So, if I'm unfortunately right, maybe there's just getting ready for a big war, in which it is better to have 500 Su-35, Su-30, Su-27SM against 200 F-35 or J-20, than 50 Su-57. However, there is not a frightening but more prosaic explanation. At the forum parralai in the branch on the Su-57 there is a stormy discussion of the current possibilities of artificial intelligence. As you may have guessed, opinions are divided into those who believe that it is necessary to build manned Su-57 and those who believe that the Su-57 is a useless waste of money and it is necessary to build an unmanned sixth-generation fighter at once. It is likely that similar discussions can be conducted in the Russian Ministry of Defense. And in that case, it is quite possible that the supporters of the sixth generation unmanned fighter simply won. In addition, if we talk specifically about the Su-57, then there is a certain difference in the priorities of the characteristics of the 5th generation fighter in the Russian Federation and in the West. First, the belief in the holy stealth-graal as in the Wunderwaffe is somewhat touching. When you look at how in field trials the F-35 with A-10 try to prove that the F-35 is better as a battlefield plane than the A-10, it's just a mime! The only problem is that the wide appearance on the battlefield of radar decimeter range, in combination with passive systems of detection of Kolchuga type can reduce all the achievements of stealth technologies to zero. But the belief that if in a combat aircraft there is no stealth technology, then this is not an airplane at all it's funny. Secondly, a dog fight in the West is buried long ago, as I remember from the time of the Vietnam War. However, the modern development of the means of electronic warfare may well make all these active radars, medium-range missiles a useless temple. Do not believe me? Ask about it from Army Gen. Tony Thomas: http://www.foxnews.com/world/2018/04/25/adversaries-jamming-air-force-gunships-in-syria-special-ops-general-says.html Thus, the advantages in stealth technologies and medium-range missiles (if any) can be simply useless. And here in the first place come out two pairs of pilot's eyes, an old good gun of a melee missile and .... and super maneuverability. B.R. Serge

    Nicely done. It looks as though you have both ailerons in a down position. They should be opposite each other. One up and one down. Chris

    Some fair points being raised here. I would say that in defence of the 'Retailer', perhaps they should inspect every Airfix kit prior to accepting any kit from the distributor. Going back one layer, perhaps the Distributor should inspect each kit prior to accepting them directly from Airfix? The images of Roman's B-26 are really unaccaptabale and I can imagine that not every 'Retailer' would be prepared to stock this companies products if the odds of finding defective parts is this high. I think I will ask to see what's inside the box before I buy another Airfix product from my LHS, however that's not exactly possible if a kit is ordered via mail. Cheers.. Dave.

    The only proof I've ever been asked for that I recall was with the current Sea fury - I was asked for the batch number. Revell have never asked me for any proof before supplying parts on the three (I think) occasions that I've had to request them. Cheers, Bill.

    Thinking of changing paint, need some advice please.

    Have to agree with others here. While the Tamiya Acrylic is no enamel, or Revell Aqua, it is one of the tougher acrylics I have used, especially after giving it a day or two to harden. Apart from that, as Graham says, buy a pot of of each paint you are thinking of and give them a shot.
