  1. That`s a great looking model! How did you create the streak effect on the wings?
  2. Amazing model and great photos! What did you use for the rigging?
  3. Thank you all! Yes, that`s the sort of close up I was hoping for. It looks much the same as the ones on the AVG P-40B. If that`s what the Hurricane used too it would be great as I actually have a Master set for the P-40B. :D
  4. Can someone show me a clear photo of the bead associated with the early gun sights (the ones with the ring)? I`m not sure if it`s just a rod or has some details on it. I apologize if it has been shown before, but I could not find it in the 58 pages of the thread.
  5. Hi! Scalemates lists a 1/72 IAR-80 kit (SH72151 )by you for the future: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/special-hobby-sh72151-iar-80--102588 Is this somethings you`re still considering? I`d appreciate any further info on this subject.
  6. Awesome model! Do you have a photo of no.217 with roundels and this camouflage pattern?
  7. I want to point out that the above mentioned volume two of the Messerschmitt Bf 109: The Yugoslav Story has been released: http://wingsofserbia.com/category/messerschmitt-bf-109-the-yugoslav-story-volume-ii/ It covers the Bf 109 service with the Croat Air Force Legion fighter component, the Independent State of Croatia, Bulgaria and post-war Yugoslavia. A pdf file with sample pages from the book can be found on the author/publisher`s website: http://wingsofserbia.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/Messerschmitt-Bf-109-The-Yugoslav-Story-Volume-II-Sample-Pages.pdf
  8. Nice job on an interesting subject! One thing though. Did you forget to unmask the lights?
  9. I want to point out that two new books have been released as part of this series, centered on the German machines in Romanian service, this time: Fieseler Fi 156 Storch - German Aircraft In Romania No. 01 http://www.radubstore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=118&products_id=736 Messerschmitt Bf 109 E - German Aircraft In Romania No. 02 http://www.radubstore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=118&products_id=749 Also, I`ve noticed that all three volumes are now available at aviationmegastore too, which should make them available to more people: Hawker Hurricane British Aircraft In Romania No. 1 Fieseler Fi156 Storch, German Aircraft in Romania Vol 1 Messerschmitt BF109E-3/E-4/E-7, German Aircraft in Romania Vol 2 As soon as I get the chance (I need to buy them first ) I`ll try to review them too.
  10. Great looking model! Where did you take your inspiration for the camouflage scheme?
  11. No, the ones I was referring to are the ex-Yugoslav Hurricanes with fabric wings (two of which are present on RB Productions decal sheet) for which the propeller that comes with the standard Airfix kit is fine.
  12. Shouldn`t both sides in between the wheels bays be pointy? I`m referring to this shot: Am I wrong or is a chunk missing from the plastic part there? If it`s a mistake I hope you`ll be able to correct it. In any case, great job with this project! I`m looking forward to the kit being released.
  13. Mitch, is there any difference between the injected and vacuformed canopies as far as the framing is concerned? From what I remember, one of the accuracy issues with this kit is that the front frames are perpendicular on the fuselage when they should be slanted. Right, here`s the list... http://www.hyperscale.com/2011/features/ik372aa_1.htm
  14. The L series to be exact. Troy, I was under the impression that they`ve included two types of propellers and three types of spinners. Which are they?
