  1. They issued the Italeri/Testors F-4E/F/G too: https://www.scalemates.com/nl/kits/revell-04307-mcdonnell-douglas-f-4f-phantom-ii--144889 Mind you, Scalemates is hardly up to scratch concerning the Italeri - (as opposed to) Esci F-4 lineage (between which there is no connection except Italeri's recent reboxing of the Esci kit).
  2. I thought Lucas, the Prince of Darkness, only did car electrics?
  3. Well, "egg laying wool milk sow" sounded pretty multirole to me. (I suppose 'Wolle' was what was meant) The German Alpha Jets replaced the Fiat G.91 for light attack too, didn't they?
  4. I hope they do a good job on this one... I've been waiting ages for a modern mould, which was announced by Heller years ago! I will need.... several...
  5. Still looks like an A-109 on steroids to me... not that that's a bad thing!
  6. Yes, the Revell 1/72 P-47 is quite good, just a little shortlegged (literally). A Tamiya rebox (does that ever happen?) would be nice, but they only do a P-47D.
  7. Indeed, I remembered the Dutch ones just now, but you beat me to it. The 1/72 Revell F-16A provides both the 'Belgian' and the 'Dutch' tail base extension.
  8. Quite correct. The Norwegian ones, OTOH, used this kind of housing for a brake 'chute.
  9. About time they finally rereleased the Esci F-5A, it was announced quite a while ago. OTOH, I don't think even a super decal sheet can compensate for the obsolescence of the RF-84F...
  10. F-5A is the Esci mould by definition as Italeri only ever kitted the F-5E/F themselves. Funny thing about the C-47 boxings is that both the Italeri ('Skytrain') and Esci (Dakota Mk.III with a very nice decal sheet) moulds are on the same page of the catalog...
  11. That Phantom could also be Italeri's own mould, with raised panel lines.
  12. ... also provided in later boxings of the 1/72 Airfix Mosquito (be it for an NFXIX without the two stage Merlins): https://www.scalemates.com/nl/kits/airfix-03062-dh-mosquito-nfxix-j30--145454
  13. It will probably be the R.V. Aircraft kit, which has already been reboxed by (new) KP: https://www.scalemates.com/nl/kits/rvaircraft-72004-nord-nc701-martinet--160968
