  1. They should do an -A version! No one so far has done one in 1/48... cheers Uwe
  2. Saw the film last Sunday...and am blown away! It was simply great even though it had Hornets in it! A worthy successor for the younger generation but for me being an old fart the original is still the best...and nothing will ever beat a Tomcat. Having said this, I went ahead and ordered a Hobbyboss -E Hornet and afterwards spotted that very old Italerie -E that I have in my pile. Lot's of errors on that kit though, not sure if it is worth bothering with it? cheers Uwe
  3. Worth the decal sheet...I still have three Monogram Tomact kits in the basement... cheers Uwe
  4. ...Childhood memories...the original came in white plastic and a VF-1 box art.
  5. Hi Mike A question about the decals, please. Are those also wet transfers as the ones shown in the videos about the "the view" boxing. I have the kit but can't tell. The carrier film of the stencil page definitely seems thinner then on the main sheet. thanks Uwe
  6. Hello all I am on the finishing run of my Airfix 1/48 Mk. IIa, which is P8522 RF W from 303 Sqn. I have used decals from Xtra Decals. Now the decal sheet shows 8522 as having the blunt spinner, wider blades and already fishtail exausts. can someone confirm this? Any pictures of th ereal bird around? Couldn't find any... thanks Uwe
  7. I am actually after the same thing and I wonder if the Italerie SBD-5 could be back dated to a SBD-3 easily. I am far from a Dauntless expert, the last one I built was the 32scale Maybox one...when it was originally released. thanks Uwe PS: AM SBD-3s are hard to find...I only got a SBD-1 recently...
  8. Hello Jack Thanks a lot, I will correct that and rememebr it going fwd with the other builds... cheers Uwe
  9. Some pics of the progress...it always shocks me to see faults in high res pictures that the naked eye can't see and even with glasses, that I need anyway, they are almost not detectable... cheers Uwe
  10. Thanks again for the info...and yes, I have other Spitfires in the making. The right one is the new Tamiya Mk.1 and it is causing me trouble right now. Put the gloss on Friday, still not fully dry. I used enamel gloss, shouldn't have done that I guess. Next time Tamiya X22 again...
  11. Thanks a lot for the explanation and especially for the pics! Since I have multible Spitfires in various stages on the assenbly line this info comes in very handy! So my Eduard Mk.VIII will be all green inside. The picture of the Mk IIa in flight is the absolute burner... thanks Uwe
