  1. Here she is the gun blanking panel is quite visible: http://www.916-starfighter.de/Large/bb386.htm The F-104F should also have F-104A/C-style wheels. The cockpit differs as well from the TF-104G, enough to be noticable in 1/32nd. Cheers, Andre
  2. Oooh, tasty. I have already asked my LHS when they'll have this in stock! Cheers, Andre

    Su-33 Flanker

    Nice progress! I have one in the stash, but have just returned to airbrushing after not using one for more than a decade. I'll practice some more on older kits first before tackling the Sea Flanker. Cheers, Andre

    Best ju87

    Special Hobby does a pretty nifty Ju 87A Anton in a few different boxings (Luftwaffe, Condor Legion and export): https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234923469-special-hobby-ju-87a-172/ https://modelingmadness.com/scott/axis/previews/splhobby/72136.htm The Airfix is excellent all around, and certainly easier to get than the Fujimi versions. The Italeri kit (also reboxed by RoG) is no slouch, but a bit softer in detail all around (especially the cockpit and canopy sufffer when compared to Airfix's). Acadamy do both the G-1 and G-2: https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/kits/aca/kit_aca_1641.shtml http://www.ipmsusa.org/reviews/Archive/Kits/Aircraft/Academy_72_JU-87G-2/Academy_72_JU-87G-2.htm In their early days they did a rather ghastly B-2 as well that's better avoided like the plague: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/107472-academy-72001-ju-87b-2-stuka One thing to look out for in Academy's Ju-87 G-1/2 kits is that the left wing has a gap in the wing root fairing above the left MLG strut, just inboard of the gun fairing, while the corresponding right side fairing is uninterrupted, as it was on the real thing. This should be filled. Possibly Academy went by a preserved example with an access cover missing. Cheers, Andre

    The Su-57 are arriving

    The ability to supercruise is also one, and a very underestimated one at that. Cheers, Andre

    1/72 Cold War Soviet Mud-Mover

    The Trumpeter Su-24M has different racks - MBD3-U6-68's instead of MBD3-U2T-1's. And I though US designations were confusing.! Cheers, Andre

    Cold War US Navy/Marine Corps jets. What Am I missing?

    I have only ever seen one in the fles.. er, styrene. Needless to say, I picked it right up. However, Scalemates shows a few for trade: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/147677-yumo-a-001-g-4-super-galeb Cheers, Andre

    Marketing 'headology' is there a way to defeat it?

    Everybody knows all you'll ever need is a vintage Fender Telecaster. *doning asbestos suit and dives under desk* 8) Cheers, Andre
