  1. This is great news indeed. 1/48 for me as well. And Swedish markings provided as well.
  2. Any ideas on where one could buy this when it's available? I haven't found this kit listed anywhere yet. And wolfpack kits in general seems to be very hard to get hold off.
  3. Looks really nice. But I'm hoping that someone will make the D.H.90 in 1/48. The way overlooked little sister of the D.H.89
  4. So, to do a slatted narrow chord wing F-86E-5 from Airfix kit, do you need to changed anything else besides the wing?
  5. I believe that the B-26K also had different type of main wheels (due to the heavier load?) But I don't know what differed and if those modelled are the correct type.
  6. They where quite outdated and did not stand much of a chance against the japs.
  7. See here. Page only in Swedish though. https://lae.blogg.se/2011/march/svenska-jaktplan-pa-filippinerna.html https://lae.blogg.se/2015/march/svenska-jaktplan-pa-filippinerna-2.html EDIT There is also this journal film in color showing the unpacking and assembly of the first P-35A's https://www.criticalpast.com/video/65675060825_United-States-airmen_Far-East-Army-Air-Force-Seversky-P-35_Headquarters-17th-Pursuit-Squadron
  8. Well, you could make one with a mix of Swedish and American markings as they where when first unpacked and used in the Philippines. That certainly would be a bit different and eye catching.
  9. Let's hope it's not an April fools prank.
  10. Hi This round outlet/intake is on the Swedish Hawker Hunter F.50 / J 34 at the air force museum. The F.50 is basically the export version of the F.4. Looking at period photos of F.4 airframes this vent is hard to tell if it's there or not, in some pictures you can see it, but in others it's quite clear it's not there. Did this vent exist on all F.4 airframes or was it a retrofit of some sort? The Aerocraft Models conversion part for the 1/48 Airfix kit does not include this vent. Also, I have not seen any drawings where this vent exists.
  11. Very cool, love it. But, it looks like the Star Destroyer is exploding? Not something I remember happening in that scene.
  12. Just to clarify The float version is named S 17BS and nothing else. So the name Tarangus have is wrong. But I'm delighted to see these sets come out.
  13. Not sure if there are any such plans. But I know that HAD Models have ideas about doing a injected molded Ju-86. I have provided him with a lot of info and references on the preserved Ju-86 we have here in Sweden. Not sure if that will bear any fruit or not, but I would certainly love to see that happen.
