    Cougar MRAP 6x6

    Not specific for the Cougar, but worth a look maybe the Blast Model BL35181K US MRAP radio set
  2. Four flaps. You can use the nice walk arounds in the Reference Thread of this GB to check it
  3. First flight of a G series was in spring 1942, so this kit realy doesn't fit in the timeframe for this GB.
  4. Amazing build. Excellent execution of modelling skill.
  5. The Sutton Harness. Look at this forum discussion about the harness in Spitfires. HERE You can also take a look on this review of an early Tomahawk seat, i'll use in my build.
  6. Because i've myself limited to WWII RAF, i'm in with an Tamiya F.3.

    Spitfire MK IX

    But this are not realy 'easy' kits do get the feets wet, because of high part count or multi media parts. Anyways, both will be outstanding builds.
  8. Hi John, tried this build review? Look or this pre-view? Look and a build blog too: Look
  9. Superb job on the brush painting. I know some guys who are artist with brush painting on tabletop models, but this is realy outstanding at this scale.
  10. EB is correct, but i can't deliver the a/c letter. Spitfire Mk.I P9324: 3-2-40 to 6MU, then 13-2-40 to 222 Sqn, then 31-3-40 to 41 Sqn 81641 Pilot Officer Gerald Archibald Langley Born at Stony Stratford and educated at Wolverton Grammar School. His family moved to Northampton in 1936 and he started work with the Prudential Assurance co. He joined the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve, in March 1939, joining 41 Squadron from training at RAF Little Rissington, together with 3 colleagues, 3 of the 4 were not to survive the wars end. 41 Squadron (Spitfire) were based at Catterick in August 1940. The squadron had spent a busy period flying fighter sweeps over Northern France during the Battle of France and Dunkirk period. The squadron was transferred to RAF Hornchurch, north of the Thames – and the thick of the Battle – on September 3rd. On September 11th Gerald was shot down in Spitfire X4325 by return fire from a Junkers 88 over Sevenoaks; he baled out unhurt. On Battle of Britain Day, 15th September, he was shot down and killed while in combat with a BF109S. His Spitfire, P9324, is believed to be that which crashed and burned out at Wick Farm, Buphan, Essex, He is buried in St. Peter and Paul Churchyard, Abington, Northampton. He was just 24 years old.
  11. Eduards kits are always a good choice. Arguably a interesting build to come...
  12. My entry for this GB. The P-40 Tomahawk IIb 'Ace of African Front' boxing from Academy. Review here at IMPS. A bit of background: This build will depict AK402, GA-F, 112 Squadron. This aircraft was flown by Pilot Officer Neville Duke, based at Fort Maddelena in Libya, November 1941. Neville Duke was one of the highest scoring Allied aces, with 27 kills by the war’s end. While flying AK402, Duke was shot down on Nov 30, 1941 by Otto Schulz of 4/JG27. He belly landed safely. Inside the box are three sprues of gray plastic, a clear one for the transparent canopy parts, the instructions and a decal sheet with four options. I'll use also AML's interior conversion, Ultracast early P-40 Seat with Sutton Harness, Ultracast Tubular Exhausts and Eduard's Canopy Mask. Now i've to await eagerly the D-day.
