  1. Yesterday
  2. Brilliant thanks, that’s about the same size as the European tram they do.
  3. According to IPMS Germany it is 9.8 metres long or in 1/35th, 280mm. ( 11 inches )
  4. I'm with Julien on that one. Once a hornet - the insect that is - that flew past me and it sounded like a very angry Lancaster on speed. I didnt hang about - discretion being the better part of valour and all that.
  5. ...or rather he didn't. He didn't take pictures of the rear of the machine for fear of being stung by the nasty waspies I've ordered him to go back and finish the job, and to get some pics of the cockpit too
  6. When I built my first of this kit I had the issue with the cowlings and filed down the cylinder blocks as you describe. However, when building my second one I followed a tip which someone had posted on Britmodeller (I'm afraid I forget who it was) who suggested rather than doing surgery on the engines just attach the cowling sections as in the instructions but leave the ensuing gap between the two parts which include the exhaust egress. Once set the exhaust pipe covers the gap nicely and the exhaust collecter ring fits perfectly.
  7. I'm afraid I gave it away, so I can't measure it Have a look on MiniArt's site, as they might have the dimensions of the finished item there
  8. I received my copy of the Su30SM today and I am happy to report that Kitty Hawk seems to have resolved the missing axles and main landing gear bay issues!
  9. Last week
  10. If you are wondering why there are no rearviews in the walkaround, that's because Julien almost stood on a hornet's nest in the long grass.
  11. @Mike just out of internet what’s the length of this one? As I’m thinking of getting one for a project.
  12. Hawk 100 Series Upgrade Set (for Airfix kit) 1:72 Eduard The new Hawks fro Airfix are good little kits, now Eduard are along with an update set for the kit. Update Set (73726) This set comprises two sheets of PE, one of which is nickel-plated and painted, the other bare brass. The first items are some new instrument panels, and side consoles for both cockpits.. The seats get a make over with new pads, belts, head box parts and firing handles. For the rest of the cockpit there is a new front coaming and the large one between the two cockpits. The
  13. F-15D Eagle Interior 3D Decal (QD48041 - For GWH Kit) 1:48 Quinta Studio When Quinta’s innovative products first came to our attention a few months ago they caused quite a stir, as well they should. The replacement Instrument Panels and internal details are mind-boggling to look at, because we’re used to seeing simplified styrene instrument panels, or Photo-Etch Brass panels with either two layers of etch, or laminated parts that can be tricky to glue together, even though they are pre-painted for your ease. But decals? These aren’t your run-of-the-mill decals
  14. Be interesting to do this as AX-04 ( A-509 ) in its torpedo test aircraft configuration.
  15. I'm now building this, which you can drop in on here.
  16. M12 Gun Motor Carriage 1:35 Airfix A1372 The M12 was born out of the need for mobile artillery for WWII. The design was originally rejected by the Army but 100 were built after the Artillery board supported the Ordnance department. The M12 was based on the M3 Lee chassis. However the engine had to be moved to mid chassis to accommodate the 155mm gun. The armoured front was kept which enclosed the driver and commander, however the rest of the crew had to ride on the open back or on support vehicles. Due to the size of the vehicle only 10 rounds of ammuni
  17. Oh, that looks nice... But Kinetic really need to ditch that Banda duplicator that they do their instruction sheets on.
  18. FMA IA 58 Pucará (K48078) 1:48 Kinetic Model via LuckyModel Originally named the Delfin in prototype stage, the Pucará is a indigenous ground-attack and COunter-INsurgency (COIN) aircraft developed by the Fábrica Militar de Aviones, Argentina’s main aircraft manufacturers. It was designed to operate from rough fields if necessary, and was powered by two turboprop engines in nacelles in the wings. That, coupled with the long landing gear legs gave it adequate ground clearance when armed, even on the aforementioned rough fields. If first flew at the end of the 60
  19. You're dead right John. I checked back on my references, and it clearly states V8, so I guess we'll have to blame my fingers? I've updated the review, as we don't want to mislead people
  20. Nice review, One minor observation is that the Indy was V8 powered, not V6 as you state (doesn't affect the kit either way). At least the quality of the body moulding is better than the Airfix E-type.
  21. Like the Airfix 1/72 re-release for the movie, why? Probably because it was the cheapest. We don't need kits like this on the shelves anymore. For nostalgia fans it's easy enough to get hold off without them being rereleased every few years.
