  1. Check out Minicraft for 1:48. They made a Cessna 150 and 172 that I recall. Piper Cherokee as well. They may have made a few other civilian aircraft
  2. Very interesting. As a Canadian, I approve greatly

    French Vought F4U-7 question...

    Agree with Dennis. I've built the Hobbyboss version and while it needs some work it turns into a nice model. The "fabric" on the wings was filled in with putty and sanded to make a "metal wing. The cockpit interior need a bit of work and the actuators on the tail surfaces need to be removed. I've read that the cowling is wrong but it looks OK by me. I've never built the Heller version so can't offer any opinion

    Well done. I'm about to try my first blu-tack method as well so watching closely

    Very nice and agree with the mottling. Any time I have spare paint in the cup I practice

    Airfix Lancaster Extras?

    The only issue I had was closing up around the front of the bomb bay. I had to grind away at the bulkhead and even then I had to use filler. HOWEVER.....this may have been an issue with me and my 3 thumbs
  7. Very nice. I recently finished the early version. The only problem I had with it was at the front of the wing insert/fuselage join
  8. That looks great. Nifty setting as well

    It would be nice if EVERY kit maker would have the wing tips molded in halves. That way you could fit each half to the wing half and then deal with an edge seam instead. With regards to the wing fold, Airwaves makes an etched set though non-working...https://www.scalemates.com/kits/945178-airwaves-aec48101-buccaneer-wing-fold-for-airfix-kit https://www.modelhobbies.co.uk/shop/airwaves-blackburn-buccaneer-wingfold-48101-p-39185.html
