    Bristol Freighter

    hi ALL , I received my OZMODS Bristol Freighter Mk.21 a coupla days ago . Comes in a sturdy Box , has nearly all the Parts as the previous Issue but this version don't have the transparent Fuselage Windows Part hhhhhhhhrrrrr ! the Modeller has to do with Transfers. There are (2) Windscreens supplied an I.M. and Vacform but there ain't no Resin Plug for extra Windscreens. The Deeecals are great ! There (3) RAAF Liveries and a SILVER CITY Military ? I am tempted to do a wiff Tassy Cray Supplier. cheery "Pre Christmas Modellin' " mumbas ! Geoff F.T.G. 3156

    P-51 landing gear

    hi ALL, A P-51's flaps always drop very soon after Shutdown and NOT to STOP Personnel walkin' on them of wot nobody should do anyway unless they want to end up sprawled on the Tarmac ! The Clam Shell inner Undercarriage Doors also drop very soon after Shutdown usually one after the other but close up very soon after Startup as this is their position when the Main Undercarriage is down until Gear Retraction is selected and completed in flight....all very neat eh ? The previous Mustang's to the P-51D's had a different Hydraulic System and none of all this applied. ......... can't remember why ! cheery " P-51 " mumbas ! Geoff F.T.G. 3156

    Best and Worst Model Kits You've Ever Made

    hi ALL , gunna write about Kits that have'nt bin produced. Has any one made a Conversion set for a 1/48 DH-9A ? The closest Kit I have come across is the RODEN 1:48 DH9C the Passenger/ Air Ambulance Aircraft I have'nt gorn into the Specs of a DH9C compared to a DH 9A ........ the Fuselage difference is obvious. And yes, I bought a WINGNUT NUTS DH9A ..... the Bees Knees ! cheery "modellin' " mumbas ! Geoff F.T.G. 3156

    Best and Worst Model Kits You've Ever Made

    hi ALL , if you really want to have a grizzle about an Aircraft Kit that cannot be fixed it's the GRAFIX Spitire (both 1/72 & 1/48 ) the Wings were made back to front it even shows the error on the Instructions, Anyway I built it as per Instructione' did really good paint work/custom Deeecal application I showed the completed model to an "Expert" on Aircraft.....he did'nt pick it ! .....went off in a huff when I explained , I bought (2) the 2nd I chopped up into a pretend local Fire Spotter Aircraft...even gave it a Victorian Aircraft Manufacturer Name....some believed me ! g.g.m.s. ! Has'nt hit the Comp Tables yet . cheery "modellin' " mumbas ! Geoff F.T.G. 3156

    Best and Worst Model Kits You've Ever Made

    hi ALL , if I read that Someone has moved House , I'll scream !...... we don't care ! A bad kit is only the Modellers inability to carry on reguardless ......it's only pretend ! How does the Modeller handle stuff in real life ?... . " take their Bat 'n' Ball ? " Geoff F.T.G. 3156
  14. hi Spookytooth , yes, I have heard that the Sunderlaland was called the "Porcupine " by the Germans as the AIRCRAFT was very hard to approach without bein' stung ! A Pig squeels when approached and bothered the Sunderland said nuthin' and keep its Enemies at bay. .......... sometimes for hours or until the Attackers were runin' outa Fuel and had to go Home . There were no 30 second engagements ! Geoff F.T.G. 3156
  15. hi ALL , the Sunderland has NEVER bin called "The Fyin' Pig " by the Crew, NEVER thought of their Aircraft as a "Pig " more of an Aircraft that they knew would get them through ALL the XXXX that wot was shot at them ........ and git Home .
