  1. Hmm, very interesting, I'd like to do a U-2. Like VC above, I hope it's accurate. Justin
  2. Ver nice. I did one fairly recently in 1/72 and enjoyed it. A photo that I posted in my WIP strand suggested to me that the WWII-era ID lights under the starboard wing were not present on the Cavaliers though. I worked that out rather late in my build so filling in the holes was not perfect. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235064735-cavalier-f-51d-172-airfix/page/2/ Justin
  3. Am I right in saying that the Xtradecals instruction sheets are incorrect in showing the tailplanes shaped a la PR34 and B35? Not material if the artwork is correct, but I find that Xtradecals' research is often a bit iffy (as is the register of their roundels). Justin
  4. Wow - great model and diorama. Did the troops sit facing forwards astride that bench? Looks like an exciting way to go to war...! Justin
  5. Beautiful job. Well done. Justin
  6. Looking forward to this. In the meantime you might find the following websites useful for references: http://www.4thfightergroupassociation.org/ http://www.littlefriends.co.uk/ And this is a nice memorial if you're ever in London: Justin
  7. @Dave Swindell Dave, I didn't I'm afraid: recently I've found that doing a WIP has been the kiss of death to getting the thing finished...! J

  9. Beautiful. Great paint job, and the whole thing looks exquisite. Justin
  10. Thanks everyone for the kind words. Mike @72modeler, for the windscreen I polished off the frame detail at the bottom of the screen and scribed & painted a new frame onto the fuselage itself. It just about works I think. @SAT69, the panel was by Modell Hobby and I was quite impresssed. Needed a bit of trimming to fit and my iphone photos don't do it justice, but nice all the same. @Doc72, yes I think the Fujimi kit is probably still the best out there. Some issues with the overall shape (e.g. the fuselage could be a bit more triangular in cross-section,
  11. New lockdown, new model: life does bring its consolations. After a couple of Hunters and a Vampire last year, I've warmed further to the 50s jets theme. In so doing I became interested in the RAF's brief but successful relationship with the F-86/CL-13 Sabre, just four short years from 1952 to 56. This is the Fujimi kit, rebadged recently as Italeri, and I had a lot of fun with it. Using references here on BM and elsewhere I made a number of changes to turn the F-86F into a Canadair Mark 4. I missed a couple of details but hopefully the errors aren't too visible. I also moved the wing pylons in
