  1. I just bought an Academy PBY-5A, so I'm in for one or two!
  2. If you come out with the Cousteau version, count me for one in each scale. I'm longing forward to seeing it.
  3. Compared to TH-55, the 300c has slightly longer tailboom and different lower tail fin too IIRC.
  4. Very good news, and I hope a civilian Schweizer 300C will follow too. It's very similar so not too diffiicult to obtain from the TH-55 mould.
  5. I like it! Can you post any WIP photos? Is the checkered underwing and tail a decal? Daniele
  6. I hope we can see your pictures soon. All your contribution to any discussion about Hornet is always precious. Daniele
  7. David, I've just seen your post, but I can't see your pictures, only an image wiith: Please update your account to enable 3rd party hosting. Is it my fault? Thanks Daniele
  8. Just published on IPMS Germany: http://www.ipmsdeutschland.de/Ausstellungen/Nuernberg2017/Nuernberg_2017.html
  9. I'm very excited. I'm looking forward to seeing it.
  10. From what I could find in Italian modellling forums some time ago, Hasegawa fuselage is 2.5-3 mm too short near the tail compared to the plans in Ali d'Italia (considered as the most precise and reliable plans published). In addition, the fairing aft of the head rest lacks 1 mm in height, so the the whole canopy results reduced in height. Also the cross section of the fuselage where it meets the wing root it's not correct: the wing to fuselage fairings should be more rounded resulting in a thicker wing roots near the fuelage. Here: http://www.stormomagazine.com/ModelArticles/MC205/RiccardoTrotta/MC205_1a.html you can find a description of the works involved in correcting the Tauro Model macchi. Other modellers chose to try and correct the Hasegawa kit cutting the fuselage near the tail and inserting a 3 mm shim to get the right lenght and reducing the height of the cockpit side walls to hide the fairing height problem. No one, seems to have tackled the wing root problem. Daniele
  11. I followed the whole WIP day by day and it was amazing to see what you were doing. Now I can't find other words than stunning for your complete model.
