  1. Roden must have scaled up their screwed up 1/48 Bird Dog engine to their 1/32 kit. After fighting with it for a few days, I gave up and put the parts back in the kit box, and the kit box on the Shelf Of Doom. Maybe I will return to it when I feel like beating y head against the wall, but that'll probably be in a number of years. Larry
  2. Hi Gingerbob, That's what I was afraid of. I guess I will have to cut strips of Tamiya tape to fit. I think it will be easier for me to apply the tape pieces to the canopy parts before I glue them to the fuselage. Larry
  3. Rather than start a whole new thread, I thought I'd try here. Did anybody ever do canopy masks for the Classic Airframes 1/48 Bristol Blenheim Mk.IV kit? I don't know if the masks for the CA Blenheim Mk.I would work or not. Larry
  4. Eduard recommends Gunze Aqueous H26, which is supposed to be close to FS14066. Larry
  5. Just as long as I don't need Hindenburger tanks! Larry
  6. Hi Armando, Yes, I definitely need a kit that has the Misawa tanks, as that is the tanks used by the Royal Thai AF. Larry
  7. Thanks for that info. I just didn't see any differences on the instructions or sprue shots. Larry
  8. I just got a set of 1/72 F-86F-40 decals for the Royal Thai Air Force. Looking at the Fujimi kits listed in Scalemates, I can't tell if they ever made an actual F-86F-40 variant, or just changed the markings. Does anybody know if they did an actual 1/72 F-86F-40 Sabre with the extended wingtips & 6-3 leading edge, and if so which boxing would it be? Larry
  9. Some more info on the Border kit. According to Sprue Brothers, there are not any metal parts in the kit, as shown on the instructions. They state: "NOTE - According to Border Models, the manual says in Chinese that "only the first batch of products will have metal parts" and that they are "sorry this not marked in English ". So please be aware that this kit does NOT include the metal parts as suggested by the instruction manual."
  10. Unfortunately, I don't have any Hasegawa 1/48 Spitfires, but I do have a few Airfix PRXIX kits, as well as a few each of ICM, Ocidental & Eduard Spitfire kits. Larry (ADDED) One of my Ocidental Spitfire Mk.IXe kits has the Airwaves Spirfire PR Mk.XI conversions (SC48051), which is designed for the Ocidental Spitfire Mk.IX kits. Plus, I have two each of the Quickboost sets.
  11. Which kit would you recommend for the nose, and would you still need to use the resin nose part for the enlarged oil tank? Larry
  12. Fascinating build. I plan to do one someday, and have most of the Quickboost sets you used. Interesting to see what was needed to make the cowling fit. I don't know if I will use one of my ICM kits, or try an Eduard kit. I don't have any Hasegawa 1/48 Spitfires, only their 1/32 Mk.Vb, which I will convert to a SAAF recce bird (Someday). Larry
  13. Phil, Thanks, looking forward to that. Best Regards, Larry
  14. Thanks for that info. I don't know if they are available in aftermarket, but I would prefer to use kit missiles.
