  1. I am DYING to snag the Yale... all Canadian too!! Having built the RS Models Magister.. i can say that, if the Yale is of the same quality, these are going to be great little kits if only short run - the build for the Magister was fairly straightforward and, surprisingly, a lot easier than some Special Hobby kits that I have come across in my time. So looking forward to this!! Cheers, Dave

    Stocky Edwards' FW190

    I hadn't realized Stocky had an FW-190 F8 with his markings on it. Well now, here I thought I was "finished" garnering all the kits that I could have garnered that had been flown by RCAF pilots and then THIS thing shows up... *LOL* Thanks for posting Grizly! Cheers, Dave

    Hudson I question

    I recall attempting the MPM Mk I when it was released - and I would concur with Ben's conclusion - it's a pain in the b-o-t-tom to get fit and alignment well. I also have the Italeri kit which I'm holding off on until I have mastered the Zen art of patience......
  4. Excellent... I often wonder about some of their "earlier" work (while this isn't "earlier" per se.. it's now about 10 years old so.... just curious) Thanks for the input Graham.. I always loved the look of the Boston/Havoc so perhaps it should be a "next up" on my workbench. Cheers, Dave
  5. I see a lot of "In The Box" reviews from folks on Scalemates (IPMS Deutschland etc. ) but I don't know if anyone's done a "build review" of the MPM Kit. I have one of these in my stash (the MPM RAF/SAAF Mk III to build for the RCAF) but I'm curious if these are going to have the "usual" MPM fit issues that some of their kits have. Cheers, Dave
  6. Yep.. I just checked the site today before coming here - and this would suggest to me that he's shipping these conversion kits now. Cheers, Dave
  7. I sent Mr Belcher an email regarding the Northstar conversion - the link on his site to the instructions points toward the "Minuteman III" kit of his so I'm curious if these have even started shipping as of yet. According to the auto reply I received it appears that all orders from him are currently delayed and will begin again on October 25. Once I hear back and get more information I'll post here. Cheers, Dave
  8. Thanks Nick... I was wondering about that... they (Airfix) provided a lot of ordnance but you're right... only one of the 250kg bombs Dave
  9. Mike, Thanks for that input - it actually has helped... I found this info on the site: This seems to help a bit Cheers, Dave
  10. I'm hoping someone can provide the answer as I'm at the stage where the camo is going to go on (one way or the other) *LOL* Cheers, Dave
  11. Hi all, Just a curiosity as I'm almost complete the Airfix 1/72 B5N2 Kate and I've chosen to do it straight OOB and I'm having difficulty deciding how best to portray the camouflage/paint scheme that is shown for Shigekazu Shimazaki's aircraft (EI-311) on Airfix's instructions: What I'm curious about is the following: Was this camo applied in the field with a brush? I'm trying to figure out if this is how it should be "painted" - I've seen others spray paint this type of hap hazard camo but I'm unsure if the edges should be so soft (or for that matter so hard as they are if you brush painted it). Any insight or help is greatly appreciated. Cheers, Dave
  12. Whoa..... I keep missing these announcements and while it's not my scale... I do want this!!! Cheers Dave
  13. Thanks guys This is one of my fave builds Always wanted to do this and finally when Airfix released the new tool version I was so happy Cheers, Dave
  14. Hi guys, Just getting a chance to revisit this today - I've been swamped with a new dog, work, wife, etc. *LOL* - so I haven't had enough time to continue to do research or to read all the posts (and to respond to messages!!) - Because I build in 1/72 - and because the "D" is lacking.. I think the only kit that may be reasonable would be the Italeri B25-B/C that was produced some time back, I opted, instead, for a Hasegawa B-25J (glass nose) and will go from there. Scooby, thanks for the offer - if I was building in 1/48, I'd be all over those decals!! And what awesome photos!! So.. with the "City Of Saskatoon" ruled out of the question... I'm going to hunt down what B25-J's I could tackle... Cheers, Dave
  15. Ahhhhh.. Nice catch Tony.. I missed that. Ok.. so this looks to be a II vs a III based on that item... Cheers, Dave
