  1. I sent that picture to HPH and they promptly sent the correct wing. I was very happy with how they handled the problem. I am worried though that someone has a kit with 2 right wings!
  2. In reality the amount of ballast would be located approximately the same distance behind the center of lift as the engine assembly is forward of the center of lift. no?. Or to put it better, more ballast weight the closer to the center of lift and less the further aft you put it. It seem correct to me but then again I am a shade tree mechanic. Dale
  3. You get extra credit for the Joe Cocker reference! Looking forward to your experience with the B-36. This was what I found upon inventorying the parts on mine.

    Eduard 1/48 Tempest

    Perfect! Now remove that bar going across the cockpit opening. You cannot fit that part over the head rest with that bar in place. I believe it is for seat height adjustment . Anyways it can be replaced later, if you want, with a piece of plastic rod. my credentials..........
  5. Very nice work and excellent photography! I did not know what a Bristol Sycamore was until your post. It really does look like a graceful Dragonfly. Can't wait to see more of it.
  6. I have one of those on my shelf of doom, so I can appreciate the fine work you've done. Looks wonderful!
  7. Looking great so far! This is gonna be good! I had trouble with the right wing twisting to a different angle than the other side. I ended up splittting it apart and re gluing to get it right. Could have been my methods got the the best of me, just wanted to give you a heads up.
  8. found this on ebay. Same incident? Most likely not. But it did get me thinking. https://picclick.co.uk/WW2-Navy-aircraft-Carrier-HMS-Emperor-Grumman-Hellcat-333153048386.html
  9. I wonder if it is the remains of the belly fuel tank we are seeing after striking the ramp.
  10. Too bad, I would spring for the Royal class kit if it include either a Mk.II or a Mk. VI. Looks like the enticement is the inclusion of the Target Tug . Not quite enough for me to get one as I already have two Mk. V Tempests.
  11. Did they happen to mention if it will include parts for a Mk. II or Mk.VI ?
  12. Loren, I have been following this build thread for a while and appreciate what you have been through so far! We seem to share the same taste in kit as I have several HPH kit including the XB-70 and B-36, the B-52H has been on order since last year. Please keep up the inspirational work! The B-70 looks mighty impressive! Am I reading your posts correctly? Are you offering copies of your photo etch exhaust work for sale? If you are please let me know.
  13. Finally Decals! Almost done with them except for the fastener marks, they are decal #S47 for those with the kit. There are lots of them. The landing gear, hood, exhaust, and spinner are not finished yet just placed without glue for pictures. The color kind of washed out in the pictures. Still need to clear coat and weather..
  14. You nailed it!! As for the water, it looks so good I want to go fishing!
  15. Hence the name, Combat models. You might be suffering from PTMD at this point. You have my admiration for finishing a Combat kit!
  16. Not quite sure I understand your question. The seat belt anchor forms a sort of small triangle that the belt attaches to. It mounts in two holes ,as it were, with the lower hole just below the top of the seat in the picture above. this allows for the seat to be in different position and still allow the belts to function as intended. here is another picture with the seat in a high position.

    RAF Yellow?

    Everything I've read says it is the same standard. 4" front and back. Started some time during the war.

    RAF Yellow?

    Mission accomplished....
  19. Great looking build of an attractive aircraft!

    RAF Yellow?

    Good point. I could have helped out by stating that my original question is in reference to a Tempest Mk. V.

    RAF Yellow?

    I'm at the point in a build that I am ready to paint the yellow wing leading edge and the prop tips and was wondering if they are to be the same color? Was there a specific yellow for the RAF?

    Tomahawk IIA Query

    Aircraft in the foreground seems to have a left aileron with the camo pattern shared by the other two aircraft.

    Tomahawk IIA Query

    Nice picture! The two background aircraft have a different pattern to the aircraft in the foreground. Was there different factory camo patterns?
