  1. hi ALL , I too have extracted a vintage 1/32 REVELL Kit from My Wardrobe after (40 ) years in Storage The Kit is the Gumman WILDCAT . I was rilly surprised at the quality of detail , I have added an RB Productions Seat Belts ( managed to lose a fittin' the 1st 30 secs of openin' the packet g.g.m.s. ! Also added the "LIVERIES UNLIMITED " P&W Engine Logo Deeecal (AGAX-001 ) and built up the Undercarriage Bay with Engine Support Struts , and Oil Tank scribed the Wings and 'bout to do the Fuselage Made it difficult for myself when I do the Scribin' as I did'nt want to remove the raised detail, but I think I have worked out a way ........ use those useless Etch Strut Sets to place over the Scribed/unscribed raised Pane lines to sand down. OR did the WILDCAT' HELLCAT etc. have Flush Rivetin' ? b.t.w. : I was unwrappin'a new SWAN MORTON Scalpel Blade the other day and there is a L/Brown Paper Packin' piece with Foil backing I thinks....... SEATS BELT Material ! ......and yes they DO stay in place cheery "modellin' " mumbas ! Geoff F.T.G. 3156
  2. hi ALL , When I saw the beautifully restored P&W WILDCAT Engine it reminded me that I recently ordered a Set of LIVERIES UNLIMITED Multi Scale Engine Decals # AGAX-001 from AIRLINE HOBBY SUPPLY (U.S. ) @ $7.50 USD + p+p cheery "Modellin'" mumbas ! Geoff
  3. hi ALL , have one of these new vintage Chopper A/C Kits wingin' it's way to me currently. Any time I need to source more detail I can motor over to Moorabbin Air Museum and check their Aircraft out on display It was a bit tatty when I saw it last (years ago ) but there's an example on display at lest. btw: when I attended a Model Club years age one the Fellas "scratchbuilt" a model of a RAAF Sycamore Whirlybird big deal some may think ...... but,but it was the size of an actual Dragonfly ! DC brought the Model in a Matchbox . cheery "modellin' " mumbas ! Geoff F.T.G. 3156

  6. hi Nick , thanks for the headsup on the Harrier L/E's Tape.

  7. hi ALL . I've built both the 1/144 Kits in the PLATZ Twin Set Amasin' Mini Kits , but I is puzzled by............. wot are the "Reflective Strips "? on the F.A.A.

A hinged Headrest/Storage Locker is provided above the Rear Seat. .....could'nt find the Mini Bar and Ashtrays........ Oh yes , the Dash is Black with a colour coded 6" strip runnin' around the lwr edge of the Dash ....... dunnoo where the Compass is . cheery "2019" mumbas ! Geoff F.T.G. 3156

  12. hi ALL , I recently built (2) ea of the PLATZ 1/144 F-106A Delta Dart and AV8A Harrier II Kits .......... absolutely perfect mouldin'. The Fin and Wing Tips on the Dart were so fine that they warped while handlin' hhhhhhhrrrrr ! and snapped one of the Outrigger Legs on the Harrier. One of the Engineerin' efforts I really liked on these Kits was that there are Tabs on the Canopies that hold the Part in place....no glooin',no mess, no cutting the part to display the Cockpit GO FIGURE Geoff F.T.G. 3156
