  1. Is this the latest trend or am I having troubles with my eyes? Shouldn't it be painted dark green instead of olive drab? Otherwise it's a lovely tribute to P. Clostermann.
  2. If you can and still have the will to do so, please make a bigger surface for both models. Let them breathe. As a diorama this just isn't it. At least for my eyes. Way too crowded.
  3. I have Tamiya kit and I plan to stick with it, but I strongly dislike rockets. Would it be OK to use the very detailed ones from the new Eduard Tempest kit?
  4. Your model turned out great, but as for me, paying 60e for this kit is just too much for me right now.
  5. Thank you for the tip about the canopy. If I ever get one I'll test fit the windshield before glueing. Otherwise it looks the part!
  6. On the close inspection there is a big gap between the fuselage and the windshield that really spoils the whole picture. Was the fit so bad?
  7. Because it is a Beaufighter that was released in 1990s and the only other modern kit of a Beaufighter is the Airfix one from a 2020. We would and should expect a huge leap in quality from AIRFIX by now, but somehow we didn't get it. Their main advantage over Hasegawa is that their kit is widely available.
  8. The fact that Hasegawa hasn't issued as many British aircraft as Airfix had has nothing to do with the high quality plastic, sharp moulding and superior panel lines.
  9. Now that's what I've been telling people all the time. Hasegawa models from the 1990s are sharper and better looking than the new Airfix ones. Great job!
  10. Hello old friend! My first kit! Ofc. I was waaay to young for you;-}
  11. Actually that wasn't a bad thing. Very early single seaters, that were only introduced in the service in spring 1941, had metal fuselages. The trouble is in details. They had armoured glass behind the pilot and slightly different cockpit hoods that Zvezda provides. Zvezda should do the metal fuselage and we could fill panel lines or not, according to our preferences. Just like the wings on Eduard Mustang.
  12. IL-2s with metal fuselage were very rare. The first 300 or so single seaters and some post war/veteran late two seater were built/had the fuselage replaced with metal ones. The latter mainly in Yugoslavia.
