  1. The 20mm in a figure is 'boot to eye'. Five feet at 1:76 is about right, although figure scales meet this standard ..well..approximately. It's because of helmets, I suppose.

    Airfix 2020

    Ju-88A1 for the anniversary. Obvious, necessary. I'm not sure relatively obscure types from the war and early post-war are going to sell in large numbers to the rest of the world. However, look at Corgi for ideas of where the wind blows.
  3. A few strokes of the file..and you'll wish you never tried.
  4. Thanks, that was useful despite my Polish not being what it might be. My two are on the way and Hannants also have them now (I found a Polish source cheaper). I was interested to see what parts are in each kit. If we wait for the full six we'll get every kind of G-H-I but these two are quite specific and there seems to be no spare parts. Of course you can build any with a few bits from the spares box.
  5. Plastic is the wrong medium for this, it should be made out of beer cans. And sold only on market stalls.
  6. Well I remember buying Hasegawa's attempt at going the other way, PFM into F. Yes, I wrote canopy when I meant screen, but surely the cockpit has to change to fit the extension of the overall canopy length and AIUI that means the fuselage halves. If I'm wrong, maybe it's kinda possible. Anyhow, it did not work out well with the Hase.
  7. The PF needs more than just a new intake, the fuselage halves would need changing, and the cockpit interior and the canopy.
  8. If Airfix occupied their time by producing 1/48 models of everything they've only done in 1/72 and vice versa, especially cold war jets, they wouldn't need suggestions for a year or two.
  9. How about a set to convert the Airfix one into a Scout?
  10. Here's a listing which attempts to reconcile US losses and Vietnamese claims using multiple sources. https://web.archive.org/web/20120331182753/http://mysite.verizon.net/anneled/usloss.html It's air combat, sometimes things are uncertain. Neither side has the monopoly on truth.
  11. Rather this is a change in incidence so the inner wing stalls before the tip?
  12. Looks like it may be Takom plastic, it is displayed at Nuernburg with a Takom transporter.
