  1. Hi John, at the top of fin there are slots for the ECM and AFT Housings, meaning there are interchangeable parts. Only the F2 and F3 did NOT have these. If you're wanting to shift the conversion set I've been after one for a while! Cheers, WV908
  2. That tail breakdown suggests there is an F3 in the works... Eek! Cheers, WV908
  3. Couldn't download the Eduard news to check, but I thought they were doing JP233's? EDIT: Yeah they are, catalogue number 648551 Cheers, WV908
  4. This was the first thing I looked for when I opened mine too, which is great as I have two cheaply bought IDS boxings and this will help turn one of those into another GR.4. It worries me though that people will just buy the kit for the GR.4 bits and part the extras out on eBay as that kind of defeats the point of the whole ltd edition boxing thing. Cheers, WV908
  5. There are sprue shots on their Facebook page. Cheers, WV908
  6. Sword Models are to release in March 2020 a 1/48 Meteor NF14. Details as follows; The new kit SW48011 Meteor NF.14 Model will be available in March.

  7. Thanks for the info and photo Troy. Not sure if you've seen it but you have a PM from me Cheers, WV908
  8. Is there a suggestion that the aircraft is relatively intact? There are no dive photos etc available. Cheers, WV908
  9. Thanks for the replies all - MV268 (MV293) is the really funny one here as as with most in-flight photos, the codes look to be sky. I photographed her on the ground at Duxford last Thursday (will upload the photo when I'm home later) and I could swear the codes are white. Equally when viewing MH434 relatively up close on the same visit, her codes appeared grey and did not match the sky band or the white of the D-Day stripes. Cheers, WV908
  10. I'm talking about how the aircraft can appear in photos and how they compare to decal sheets - in those two it's clearly sky - in other photos of the same aircraft the codes look white-ish. MV293 is even more confusing than these two - regardless, neither pair of codes in these photos are as dark as any decal sheet I can find that calls it's codes 'sky' unfortunately. Cheers, WV908
  11. Thanks Troy - I'm hoping that the blue backing is indeed compounding the problem. Examples of Spitfires I am looking at are EP120 and MH434 - their codes are neither the usual darker sky nor grey and when compared to the roundels, are only just off-white. It's a confusing problem which was brought on by my plan to model MV293 in it's MV268 guise - in some photos the codes look sky, in others they look this off-white. Cheers, WV908
  12. Hi all, I'm not sure if this is entirely a post war thing, but most Spitfires on the flying circuit today wear squadron codes that are of an off-white (not sky and not grey) colour. I'm really struggling to find anything that will suit decal-wise in 1/48. I bought a set of Xtradecal X48023 which looked about right on the website, but turned up beige on arrival. Thanks in anticipation, WV908
  13. I'm holding off for a Swedish version - didn't realise the engines were different, thanks Cheers, WV908
  14. I'd guess there's only five at the pre-order price. Cheers, WV908
  15. '603 Doesn't have control surfaces to speak of any more. When she was fixed up a few years ago, the ailerons / elevators were de-skinned and re-skinned over in a couple of solid patches, with the former hinge lines painted on. Cost effective at the time considering she doesn't need the use of her control surfaces, but it shows that maybe they should have been done properly first time around. This is not a criticism of the museum though as the alternative was bean tins; just my two-pence worth. Cheers, WV908
  16. Record beaten by G-CIVP - It's nice that it was one of the more colourful birds - just a shame it wasn't the Landor or BOAC one though. The aircraft may be American built, but it's a British record once more. Cheers, WV908
  17. Other sources are quoting something that I couldn't find that suggested what I wrote. I linked only what I could find. Cheers, WV908
  18. The big Tonka will finally be revealed at Nuremberg toy show 2020. It's not clear from the translation if this is simply a reveal or a release for sale though; https://www.italeri.com/en/article/740 Cheers, WV908
  19. The IDS kit has all the parts to make a GR.1, minus the hindenburger tanks Cheers, WV908
  20. Thanks chaps - will definitely be picking that one up. Some nice additional detail sets too that will compliment my other Desert GR.1 build. Luscious Lizzie, Armoured Charmer or Check Six? Choices choices.... Cheers, WV908
  21. I'm happy to sit here and wait to see which Gulf War set gets upscaled at present - hopefully with them not needing underwing codes it may be just be two sheets. Cheers, WV908
  22. Is anyone able to tell me the aircraft's ID please? Photobucket has unfortunatley chewed up the quality of the images. Cheers, WV908
  23. Aha, Tornado GR.1 in March then. Not long to wait. Helpful that it's been translated as I had no way to do it myself. Cheers, WV908
