  1. S&M Models currently have the Williams C-46 available in their range.
  2. Thanks for that info Mark, much appreciated. I know there's an Italeri AN2 in the vaults, just need to check out the markings.
  3. Mark Have the Estonian's done away with the tri-angular markings now. cheers Chris

    Su-27SM paints?

    I've had a quick look through the AKAN paint list I got from Coastal Craft at last years NATS and it lists a scheme for the Su-27SM in the Russian Air Force 100th Anniversary. The set is numbered 47332 and contains paints:- 73167,73168,73169,73058,73146 & 73060. hth chris
  5. Interesting thread this. Luckily not my area of interest per se but the membership seems to be getting somewhat aggressive, even dictatorial. CaracalModels must be looking forward in anticipation to the multi sheet orders heading his way. Just as well there's nothing else to occupy his time.
  6. Not actually over my house but at the home of British aviation down in the valley a flying display was taking place yesterday afternoon. An aerobatic team were displaying over the airfield complete with "Smoke On". Can only think it was 100th Anniversary related with the FAST museum.
  7. Right search continued: Superscale 72-460 is for Hinds including two A's where my Algerian option came from. Vietnamese markings appear on 72-102(Mig 17) & 72-473( Mig 21). I'm now going for a lay down to recover after checking through 17 lever arch files. Phew
  8. I had a further look through the decal bank and found some Vietnamese markings on Freedom Tigers II (72-050) from Aztec one of the captured F-5's. Chris
  9. Been through my Begemont,Authentic & Caracal sheets and nothing. Have done one in Algerian markings but I think I used the Zotz (Roundels of the World), and that stopped at the Middle East. Chris
  10. Having gone through my Modeldecal sheets and instructions gifted to me by Dick I think the first sheet that covers your required time frame is 49 with Sea Kings HAS1/2 OF 1978. Every thing prior to this covers an earlier time period. Sheet 50 carries a Jaguar from 1977(Silver Jubilee Review). Sheet 55 is the 1979 IAT AT Greenham. Sheet 56 carries 1978/9 Lynxs. Sheet 57 has a single Sea King HAR 3. Sheet 64 has Phantoms, Tornados & Hawks from 1981. Sheet 65 has Lightnings, Phantoms, & Sea Harriers from 1977-81. Sheet 67 has a Puma of 1980 vintage. Sheets from here on in tend to be Falkl
  11. Sorry Steve Ignore this post, I'm talking out of my not so pretty end. When I located this kit it's an AZ product I need to amend my kit list.
  12. Another vote for Special Hobby service. I picked the CASA 212 up at Telford to find the windscreen missing when I got home, following an e-mail the complete sprue arrived in the post. Top team.
  13. Re the other kits by Vista, I've got an Attacker FB2 in the stash by them.
  14. The saddest part of this, at least to myself is that the post office released a set of stamps today commemorating the 100th anniversary of the RAF. In addition to the six stamps in the presentation pack there are four further stamps also featuring the Red Arrows. Fate can be so unkind. Perhaps the post office will make a contribution to the RAF Benevolent fund if their not already doing so.
  15. David Sorry if I'm somewhat puzzled but I can't understand this type of thread. You obviously bought it for a good reason, do you think it's worth the cockpit set or are you throwing good money after bad?. If some of the panel lines are recessed then you won't have to rescribe those(bonus). At the end of the day it's your thoughts on the merits of the kit that count, as long as it's enjoyable. Best Chris
  16. Actually John I'm beginning to doubt myself now. Inluded in my box is the T17 conversion(DB61). The B2 conversion(DB63) only mentions the white metal front u/c & wheels. The resin main wheels only have 4 nut locations, nothing like the Aeroclub items. Strange. Just had a look at the S&M B2 and the wheels look like the DB offering!!
  17. I've got the original DB conversion for the B2 in the stash and that includes a full set of wheels. The Aeroclub B2 conversion I have doesn't. Just saying.
  18. Sorry to come back into this thread, having been warned off by the mods for fanning the flames, but the thread had nothing to do with comparing the Fujimi and Airfix offerings as I read it. It seemed to be a comparison of a photograph of the real thing with the nose shape of Fujimi's 30 year old offering, which in view of the information available then seems a very reasonable kit. I'd better shut up now before I earn a 60 day holiday.
  19. Got to agree, when I saw this thread last night I thought the rivet counters have emerged already, not enough in their lives to think about!!. Still on the bright side think of all those cheap Fujimi Phantoms coming out of stashes.
  20. I picked up Canberra's from Mel at Banstead and enquired about the Hastings. Apparently there is a problem with the canopy casting which needs resolving, so no fresh supplies at the moment. Chris
  21. Cheers Mark I meant to ask her when I saw her at the Nationals.
  22. My memories failing me but what happened to Jens Herc bits, she did engines to correct the Italeri c-130 to the J variant?.
  23. Very good rendition, just out of interest for future reference what paint colours have you used?. Chris
  24. Nothing about the Casa 101 they mentioned at the Nationals, and the Gloster F9/37 with the Taurus engines I wonder if they'll include the Peregrine engines as well or do a separate kit later "a la" Magna?
  25. Funnily enough I have a nose conversion done by Reyhex for this variant as a T19 of 85 Sqn at Binbrook circa 1968. Apparently tip tanks were not used on this version.
