  1. Nice catch on the Citation Those Osprey’s are always cool, I have seen these often on Mildenhall were these two are based. cheers, Jan
  2. A pity to hear but as Duncan says try something different! Maybe a diorama or tank or even a truck I hope you will find the MOJO back! cheers, Jan
  3. You are welcome fellows! @stevehnz you think these are exotic wait until you see the Iranian Seakings! https://www.airteamimages.com/westland-sea-king_8-2309_iran---navy_333803.html to me the Belgium one and Iranian are top of the bill colorwise Maybe you do know that this Belgium color scheme was intended for Egypt as the five the Belgium’s operated were initially intended for delivery to Egypt but that deal fell through. The Belgians just bought these and never bothered to give them an other paint scheme. cheers, Jan
  4. Quite a drive for two Seakings but i couldn't resist...250 kilometers one way These particular Seakings were operated by the Belgium Air Force Three years ago they were decommissioned and i never thought that i would see these flying again soon! They look as they were in service with the exeption of their registration OO-SEE and OO-KNG quite apropriate i think. This day they went to their new operator Historic helicopters in the UK who are planning to use these machines on airshows. May you fly and prosper you mighty King... https://www.historichelicopters.com/Pages/1/Home.html cheers, Jan
  5. You have done a fine job on that cockpit Lovely to see that this still builds up into a very beautiful model! cheers, Jan
  6. And it is available at the Aviationmegastore https://www.aviationmegastore.com/lockheed-c130j-30-hercules-zvezda-7324-vliegtuig-modelbouw/product/?action=prodinfo&art=182283 cheers, Jan
  7. Bring on that long overdue F27 new tool Friendship....
  8. The aviationmegastore in the Netherlands does have three kinds of westwinds from broplan in stock in a pricerange of a little more then 40 euro's...could not paste a link via my phone Cheers, Jan
  9. Great stuff and lucky that it all fits together nicely Cheers, Jan
  10. @Phew7410 sorry for my late reaction i don't seem to get the response alerts lately! The build isn't dead but it froze for a while other projects got in the way as well. Ik hope to restart this one soon.. Nice catch on that Arctic bird by the way and thank you for checkin in @LDSModeller thank you Allan for your story and thuis information is much appreciated. It is a very interesting part of polar aviation. I do have a weaknes for ski equipped birds. Cheers, Jan
  11. Great job on that one and I love the camouflage. cheers, Jan
  12. What a very fine build this is, nice and clean.. Great paint job as well cheers, Jan
  13. I just read through your build Dennis and the Texan does look very good. I love the colors cheers, Jan
  14. Maybe the wrong thread Homebee as this link is for the Border Lancaster! cheers, Jan
  15. This is looking good and I love the finish, again a great Chippie The more I see these kits in the RFI the more I want one cheers, Jan
  16. Your story makes sense on a kit that they don’t want to alter too much but in this case they made the new fuselage, wings and cockpit parts and props and they still made them wrong ! The did wanted to do a right one as more than half the kit was redone compared to the B and C variants and that is a lot of effort to produce a particular variant. So in this case it isn’t an easy calculation of leaving parts off to cut costs they just did not want to redo them after they discovered that these parts wich they newly designed were wrong and just send it out as is as it was going to cost them a lot more to correct the mistakes. I won’t say it is a bad kit and it is still is a nice basis too start one if you do not have an counter invader and you are also right that people would not mind the errors. cheers, Jan
  17. https://www.militaryfactory.com/aircraft/detail.php?aircraft_id=406 To me it looks like these props are too narrow and they are tapering too early .. In real life these were cut down DC6 blades. picture from the inbox review of Julien.
  18. Here with you as well..did gave em enough info regarding the cockpit and they thanked me for it! Didn’t do a thing with it So despite al things missing( like the padded cockpit walls, extra jumpseat, still a wrong propellor shape and yoke, it also is missing the armor plating on the sides which has been discussed on the earlyer variant) it can be a nice base. Still can’t understand why so much details are still wrong on this kit when they had a lot of things redone! Still mis a glass recce nose as they did flew with them in the Canal Zone . I was always waiting for an up to date Counter Invader and this comes close but still not close enough to let me throw away my conversions I have and go on with that B variant from them and scratch the cockpit. But this of course is my two cents from a K lunatic cheers, Jan
  19. true but the Williams isn’t an easy one and has some difficult area’s in which the Valom allready looks better... However I did not started it so maybe there are some surprises cheer, Jan
  20. As I have a few Williams kits I compared them. I have a guess that they used the Williams kit as a basis as most parts (Wings and stabilisers) are exactly the same size and I can fit the Williams right cockpit glass part in the Valom one! The left one does not fit but that is particularly due to the fact that the Williams is not symmetrical designed as the left is a little longer . You have a good chance that the vacform glass from squadron will fit. Front engine cowling ring is also exactly the same fit and setup but the air intakes are a bit different. The grey is the Williams part. a If I mate up the fuselage parts the Valom is a little shorter and the front nose contour is altered a bit. The floor of the Williams can be made to fit as well. Finally the windows are very crisp and on the right places in the fuselage, this is something I could compare with a template that is included in the Lima November decalset for the Fred Olsen C46. In the end they made up a very good Commando and it probably is a somewhat easyer built than the Williams which is still a good kit. cheers, Jan
  21. That is a very nice looking Tomcat and a good collection of Iranian aircraft as well. Thank you for sharing cheers, Jan
  22. Those misty morning pics are great you were lucky to have those conditions. You must have had a very pleasant day . cheers, Jan
  23. You can find the instructions at scalemates... https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/5/6/7/1325567-24-instructions.pdf sprueshots here https://www.hobby.dn.ua/en/product_info.php?products_id=102994&utm_source=scalemates&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=scalemates-marketplace&currency=EUR It does look like a very nice rendition , still a pity to see they left out the cockpit jumpseat behind the copilot and even in Vietnam wartime they had an insulating padding on the cockpit sidewalls and rear bulkhead. Looking at the sprueshots I have seen and the instruction I start to fear that they didn’t changed the control yokes. Propellor blades do have the wrong shape as the chord is wrong. These things are pretty easy to solve for an experienced modeller. Nice to see that they included the Special Kay nose art ( they mention it was based in the late sixties in that color scheme but the plane never wore the name in that period as it is only the name given after it’s restoration) cheers, Jan
