  1. Yeah, watched it, got quite interested in maybe getting one, saw the price, lost interest!!! £32 Jeff
  2. Well said Homebee!! This is getting boring now..."I want Airfix to do this, I want Airfix to do that....".
  3. ?? But as I have pointed out and Ian Turbofan mentioned, decals have been made for a CAT Convair 880 and Minicraft offered CAT decals with their DC-6 kit. Sooo...the answer is yes, at least two companies have made them. You said "any, all" when asked for which aircraft. So a DC-6 and CV880 isn't what you want. Could you be a bit more specific about which aircraft, which scale, which era of CAT you're after? Jeff
  4. http://vintageflyerdecals.com/cat.html Sadly not a C-46 but a Convair 880. If you do find a source for the C-46 be sure to post it here, I too would like one!! Jeff
  5. Oh good luck. I have/ had both kits plus the Welsh Models kit. Below shows the F-rsin kit sitting comfortably inside the Oz Mods fuselage half And pointing skywards both sitting on their tails. I found both kits quite frustrating - F-rsin was typical F-rsin (!) and the Oz Mods kit wasn't much better. Plus, as I remember it, the wing carry-through on the F-rsin kit isn't correct as it seems sunken below the upper fuselage surface. I'll happily follow along and perhaps summon enough confidence to re-attempt the Oz kit (F-rsin crashed and burned...) Jeff
  6. Hi, According to the instructions on my Drawdecal Delta B717 sheet, Model Master Blue Angel blue or Tamiya X-4 are very close matches. HTH Jeff
  7. Gulp, the pressure!! I'll have a good read of the liked article Dave and take on-board any suggestions - I was looking at the Molotow website a few days ago a saw some likely contenders for the green. It's still a few weeks away from finishing as I've got 9 other models in the final stages of completion. Jeff
  8. Hi Al, Thanks for providing reassurance that I wasn't being clumsy with the flight deck cap! My NEO will hopefully wear the garish green of S7 Airlines. I'm currently trying to decide on the correct shades of green. Jeff
  9. Beautiful NEO and an eye catching colour scheme too. My A321NEO has stalled a bit due to the less than wonderful fit of the clear flight deck cap - mine seemed to be too narrow at the edges so I've had to build up the sides with filler and that has sapped my enthusiasm a bit. Other than that, it is a pretty decent kit. I like the colour scheme. How well did it fit aroud the back end? Jeff
  10. To report back about the BPK 737 gravel kit, the T-43 variant has the forward nosewheel gravel deflector included. My other boxes aren't readily at hand but I'm sure the Canadian Northern release has the kit too. Jeff
  11. If you hunt down the BPK 737 model, the gravel kit is included with that one. If you'd like I'll check if it's in all releases or in the Canadian North release so you know which one to look for. Jeff
  12. Great work so farJohn. I like the grey underside colour, it looks like you've nailed the "British airliner grey" colour well - not quite as cold as Boeing grey it has a slight yellow tone to it. Good stuff! Jeff
  13. Ha Ha!! It must have been desperation!! If the 757 is of the same quality as their CRJ series (and there's no reason to believe it won't be) sign me up for a dozen to begin with. I've got decals for Britannia, BA, Delta, American, FAT and want Air 2000, TUI, Airtours. Brilliant news. I may even have a 72nd one too. Jeff
  14. ^ not for me, I'll happily take a 1/144 757 over a larger scale one any day. A huge thanks to BPK!!! Jeff
  15. Looking forward to seeing those big engines in 72 scale. Jeff
  16. Ha! I remember M&S having large posters hanging from the ceiling declaring "Don't forget Easter is 14 April" - this was the middle of January and you'd have to be a boffoon to forget it with such a constant early reminder. No wonder we all feel the pace of life is increasing with Christmas being shoved down our throats just after summer, Easter being forced on us just after christmas and summer holidays being offered now. Just remembered seeing TUI offering holidays for 2021 a few weeks ago... Hurry up!! Hurry up!! Jeff
  17. Buy any kit as they all contain the main details sprue containing u/c, prop spinners, footsteps and 3 types of nose including the standard nose. Jeff
  18. Based on the article and some of the rare photos I've found too, the standard "manned" version of the kit will be ok to make ZA180 as the bulged windshield is included in the box. Jeff
  19. I didn't know the crabs had bought some so I had a Google and found some discussion and pictures from over a decade ago. Looking at the picture below, the very recently released kit (Da-42 MNG) can be made as this aircraft. On the very busy sprue shown above, there are three types of EO/IR camera bodies. The one in the picture below with the long projection is included in the kit, along with two types of windshield. https://www.airteamimages.com/diamond-da-42-twin-star_G-DOSC_united-kingdom---royal-air-force_146103.html Jeff
  20. I received my Da-42 a couple of days ago. It's a nice little model that comes with a few unused options (some used on the unmanned Dominator release) This new kit looks good too so I'll be looking to add this to my stash. Jeff
  21. They are made by BPK and the 737 was released 7 years ago. I've got a few but haven't completed any of them. Very decent kit but display space or lack of, stops me pushing on with it. There's loads of potential super detailing that can be done - just have a look at the main u/c bay and you easily spend weeks adding all the pipes, hoses, aircraft structure etc!! When it was released, there were a couple of aftermarket resin pieces available from Authentic Airliners for it but they were no better than the kit parts and I only bought one set and regretted it. As for the CRJ, I've got one in the post!. BPK also offer 1/144 CRJ kits which are cracking little models - my CRJ900 is almost finished and I've thoroughly enjoyed every second of its build. They do have plans for more airliners but I think it's a pretty small company so each kit may take a bit of time to be produced. Jeff
  22. Slightly off topic, will you be offering them with alternate decals? Please say "Yes"!!! Jeff
