  1. Relax Tweener, your symptons are pretty mild. At the moment I am seriously contemplating kitbashing Tu-16 wings, engines and tail with Tu-134 fuselage to make half decent Tu-124 in 1/72 ... And if I follow it through I bet a beautiful kit of Tu-124 will appear the day I finish the model. Cheers Jure
  2. I think Divaca airstrip in Slovenia littoral region is still on more or less the same location as it was during 1915-18. It has concrete runway now, thought ... Cheers Jure
  3. Hello, dov These days that is industry standard in emergency situation. Even with total failure of hydraulic/electric/pneumatic system pilot can lower and lock undercarriage just by unlocking it and then let gravity and aistream do the rest. Cheers Jure
  4. Hello, on the top photo there is a Pou-du-ciel's aft wing in the right-hand lower corner, with its rudder in the middle of the photo near its right edge. Bathtube-like part on the opposite side of the same photo is Pou-du-ciel's fuselage. Her fore wing is on lower photo in its right-hand upper corner. Cheers Jure
  5. Hello Justin The dog's name was also a code word for breaching the Möhne dam. I think Stephen Fry changed it into Digger in a script for the mentioned remake. Cheers Jure
  6. Hello, Francois Very convincing looking Reggane. I especially like the rivets, although engraving them must have been a tedious job. Cheers Jure
  7. Hello Mark I believe Mistercraft kit is a repack of the old Heller H 75 A-3 kit. Unfortunately I do not know much about it. In my stash I have Monogram H.75 A-3 and Azur H.75 A-4 kits in 1/72. Especially the former shows its age and I understand both have somewhat slim fuselages, although this flaw is not that noticable. Also, they both build into nice models. Cheers Jure
  8. Hello Vultures1 Correct, that Revell F/A-18 E was a repack of Italeri kit, thanks. Cheers Jure
  9. I would advise against Revell kit. I bult one some 20 years ago and it has several issues: its shape is not accurate, still has A-B-C variants air brake between stabilizers, wings-intakes assembly is a bit fidly ... Cheers Jure
  10. Hello Neil.C and Giorgio N Decades ago I bought SMER FIAT CR.32 and G.55 1/48 kits. Both were in 1/50 scale and IIRC the latter was actually closer to Macchi C.205. Fortunately a fellow-modeller took it from my hands. I bashed Chirri's fuselage and empenage into something resembling first series CR.32, but exhausted my will power in the process and the kit is now permanent resident of the shelf of doom. Cheers Jure
  11. Sorry, my memory played tricks on me. National markings on wings and tail, and nose all wraped up so no idea about number. Cheers Jure
  12. Hello Joe I do not know if it helps, but in 2002 I took photos of Macedonian Su-25 UBK on Petrovac airport without any marking apart from tiny Macedonian flag on vertical stabilizer. These Suhois had been wet-leased from Ukraine a year earlier. Will check my photos as soon as I get home. Cheers Jure
  13. At least as far as Vulcan is concerned that made sense at the time. In 1992 XH558 was flying as a part of RAF Vulcan display flight (and two other Vulcan bombers had been kept in high-speed taxi condition) eight years after the type had been retired from regular service. Cheers Jure
  14. Hello, I think BBMF used to be called RAF historic flight or something similar. I wonder why that title had been changed? Cheers Jure
