  1. I believe Airfix had to make new transparencies for the 2006 re-release of the Britten-Norman Islander for similar reasons.
  2. Thank you. I had second thoughts about ruining the "quiz" part with that removed link. I also see it is already in your WIP thread. 😍 your symbol came through.
  3. I seem to remember a Pitts Special and I see a bottom fuselage / wing in the top photo and upper fuselage and upper wing in the second.
  4. A late side question: Has anyone seen the second edition of the Academy 1/72 T-50? ROKAF T-50B. #12555 Are "real" Black Eagles decals in this kit or stickers like the first edition?
  5. I believe the Belcherbits kit is 1/48 scale. Any previous 1/72 Tutor kits have been out of production for decades - Astra vacuform, Victoria Products vacuform (and a resin version) and the Hobbycraft injection kit. Looking forward to more information as it develops. 🇨🇦
  6. There are (were) two complimentary CF-100 sheets produced recently. Some info over at ARC MatNic Decals
  7. This question came up over at LargeScalePlanes last month. One of the posters did get in contact with Mr Roberts: "I talked to Jeff Roberts today. Jeff is recovering from a long illness. He said as soon as he is feeling better he will revive Combat Models and get the business going again." That's from May 18th.
  8. I received my Ebay pre-ordered 1/72 scale kit last week. While pondering how to tackle this new to me medium, I received a new nose section yesterday. The original upper and lower forward nose section has been re-designed into a single piece .... and shipped out free. Great customer service!
  9. I started one years ago using two Ventura kits. I have yet to find a decent plan, so the wing is still a mystery to me. The Air Britain Lockheed Twins book was my main reference. It's just another resident on the shelf of doom for now.
  10. I'm looking forward to this one. National Museum of the US Air Force recently moved the "real deal" to it's new display area. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCOhkp_nOvE The X-3 is at 54 seconds to 2 min 13 seconds if you're in a hurry.
  11. There was some discussion about this regarding the new Revell 1/32 Me-262B nightfighter here: Me-262 nightfighter and trainer
  12. Quite the journey from where you had to start. Magnificent result!!
  13. What an inspiring build of this fascinating subject! I first saw CF-BQM on the way to Quebec where it would get the Belvedere colors. I photographed it later in 1981 at Calgary before restoration. http://www.airliners.net/photo/Untitled/Barkley-Grow-T8P-1/2369585/L I look forward to the rest of your journey.
  14. Thank you, I will pass this on. I have not seen this particular set of drawings, but the other MAP airliners I have show at least a few those section drawings I mention above.
