  1. Another thumbs up from me. just one comment not enough photos of 38 Sqn Shackletons 😉
  2. In Warpaint no. 4 Lindsay Peacock also mentions a F-100E model, that was unbuilt, "The F-100E was to be a single seat aircraft derived from the F-100D, but was shelved at a very early stage". Other proposed, but unbuilt variants mentioned are: F-100J - All weather interceptor for the JASDF to replace the F-86D F-100K and F-100L - J57-P-55 powered variants of the F-100F and F-100D respectively. F-100N - Simplified version of the F-100D for NATO forces, reduced electronic equipment F-100S - Spey turbofan powerplant in a F-100F airframe, proposed to France, who, if it had gone ahead, were to produce it under license. Could the F-100E be a stepping stone to either the F-100J or F-100L? Better electronics and/or better engine?
  3. Especially as Hannants have a wishlist function built in
  4. Hi Colin, I should have at least two unused sets of the Revell decals, maybe a couple of the older Airfix ones. Drop me a PM if you are interested in them. James
  5. I have order a few time from Air Graphics and although the process could have been smoother, I have always received my items.
  6. Just a shout out to Phoenix team for some good customer service. Last Sunday ordered the February issue online, as I had not been able to locate a copy in store. After about 3 hours got a phone to ask if I had meant to order the Feb issue as the March issue was now available and they wanted to make sure I had selected the correct issue. Thumbs for being proactive. Have received my copy last week and so far so good. james
  7. The Airwaves HC.4 conversation had earlier version in white metal. The Airwaves etch set for the Revel Sea King has the later version in.
  8. Hope your refund comes through - they did again to refund my subscription, as after 4 months I had not received a single copy. After 4 weeks of chasing the refund, I went through PayPal and after suppling a copy of the email chain, PayPal issued the refund.
  9. Hi Martin, You have made great work so far! Looking forward to seeing the finished model.
  10. Still no December issue of SAMI for me, I renewed my subscription in November and seeing that the publication date has now moved to the end of the month, from the beginning of the month I suspect that I will now only revived 5 issue in my subscription and not the 6 I was expecting. Should have l learnt from the problems last Marche when the March/April issue was combined and my subscription expired in March - did not get the combined issue as my subscription had expired before the publication date! I will until the 7th Feb to see if any is received and if not will ask for a full refund and open a case with Paypal.
  11. Thanks all for the responses @scotthldr those photos are really useful! - Might just go with your suggestion of Dark compass grey @Red Dot, thanks for the suggestion, will join that site. Cheers all James
  12. Hi All, Just about about to start the Italeri AS.532 Cougar in 1/72. Looking at doing the Singapore option, as something a bit different. The colour schemes in the instructions are not the clearest. Looking at images on the net, I believe I am sorted for the upper surfaces and sides. The confusion is the underside colour - Italeri appear to have this as a tan colour, but the only picture I can find that shows any of the underside colour, it appears to be a grey - green colour - https://www.airliners.net/photo/Singapore-Air-Force/Aerospatiale-AS-332M1-Super-Puma/1197162/L?qsp=eJxtjjEOwjAMRe/iuQNRCYhsdGGkAxewHAORQhs5Hqiq3p00RUxs3%2B/bT56BxkH5rbcpMTjIjEJPaCCh4CuDmwGDkOBdO8yBtrX9sW1%2B/MIDy98GnDF2m2MYVr3dWXsq9jyKdlMBHpXPRJyU/ZdfxbOsFWeqjzzKpSmBpa8Z2kPhPuQUsTpYMURYlg%2BR8ELa Anyone have an image of the underside of a Singaporean Cougar or know what the underside colour should be? Thanks James
  13. Do we know what markings are going to be included yet? I am hoping for an 80 sqn F.3
  14. It would be good to see a Mosquito flying the UK again. I was fortunate enough to live not too far away from where RR299 was based, at BAe at Hawarden when I was at school. We often saw it fly back or even practising displays. James
