  1. I know it was less capable but I always liked the look of the Havoc more than the Mitchell or Marauder. Excellent job on an old goldie!
  2. If you were to do it your best bet would probably be to impress another corrugated surface (wing, aileron) on a "lasagna" of fresh Milliput. But yeah, this is clearly easier to do.
  3. Aargh, 1/18 is even better than I hoped! Thanks, much appreciated. The hunt begins...
  4. Hi all, I reckon the Revell 1/24 London Taxi depicts a version of the ubiquitous black cabs that has been put out to pasture. Does anyone make a London cab of the type most commonly seen in the noughties - present day? Thanks in advance, Bone
  5. Ages ago there were resin figures sold on eBay but I don't remember the manufacturer. Some obscure garage company/one man band business. Searching now returned Dust Models figures. Looks like they're aimed at wargaming so the proportions and accuracy are to be taken with a grain of salt. www.dust-models.com
  6. Already they're about as prolific as a same-sex couple of pandas, give them the time to catch up on their unfinished projects first! I've been waiting for the SB for YEARS...
  7. Anyone else ever wasted their time with the RPM 1/72 example? Makes you appreciate this one even more. Gotta be mine. Mine. Mine.
  8. Supermodel did the Alcione both in single- and twin fin version (Monoderiva and bideriva, respectively): https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/1/5/1/137151-11185-pristine.jpg https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/3/8/3/141383-11185-pristine.jpg The latter has been reissued by Italeri. It is possible to convert the SM.79 into its less successful successor, the SM.84. The main differences are the lack of the "hunched back" and the twin fins. There are also limited edition kits of this airplane, tho. VEB made a very nice and detailed kit of the Junkers G.24 in land- and seaplane version. Reissued by Revell as well. Seaplanes other than the CANT are the S.66 (the Delta 2 kit is as rare as rocking horse poo though!), Do.24 and Bv.138 "Flying Clog".
  9. Hi Jure, thanks for the info, it suits my purpose as all kits I've seen so far have the 'stirrup' arrangement (if there is a technical term I'll be glad to learn it!). There's also a very well preserved Weihe wreck at the bottom of a lake and it has the single leg, too.
  10. Hi all, I was looking at an Fw.58 walkaround and it seems that there were two different undercarriages: a "standard" one, with a single leg holding the wheel on one side) and another one with a "stirrup" holding the wheel. Does anyone know which version carried which type? I'm especially interested in the Austrian and Brazilian exported aircrafts.
  11. I never had this particular kit but as vacform/short run kits go... It would be logical to think that the two halves marked 1 go together to form Number 1 engine but do dry tests before you commit to glue. Regarding fettling, I suggest that you tape sandpaper to the wing surface and run the nacelles against it, this way you should obtain a matching cutout easily. Keep up the good work!
  12. Nicely done! You can always say it's an aircraft fresh out of factory and still waiting for its markings to be applied. You say the wings required sanding... Did you build the wings separately, or attach each upper wing half to the respective half fuselage? The latter method is less likely to result in gaps, or at least the gaps will be on the leading edge and underside.
  13. There is a resemblance with the Schneider Sch-10M, isn't it? Corrugated surfaces, twin tail, fixed undercarriage with huge 'spats'... http://www.airwar.ru/enc/aww1/schneider10m.html
  14. Has anyone mentioned the Corsair yet? Stubby brother of the Crusader. Last examples fought in the Gulf IIRC. Then there's the Savage, currently only available as a Mach 2 rough and expensive kit.
  15. Hello, I just came across this build. Hard to tell it's not the Revell kit. Excellent paintjob. Congratulations!
