  1. Is CanMil Air doing decals again? Last time that I looked at his website (which was several years ago), he had gotten out of the decal market.
  2. Belcher Bits used to do such a conversion, unfortunately, it's sold out now. They still offer the decal sheet though. The conversion was based on a set from a company called Aircraft in Miniature, Hannants may be a source for the engines.
  3. Maybe one of the old Airfix modeling magazine issues?
  4. Could you post some pics of your work? I am curious as to how you addressed the differences when mating the B wing to the Hasegawa fuselage. Thanks.
  5. Why? Well, that's what happens when you copy other people's work. Had AZ been more like Arma Hobby and started from scratch, doing their own research, maybe then they would have gotten it right.
  6. True the wings are good as they are a slightly more detailed version of the Revell wings. I am doing the same thing as you described (mating the wings with the Hasegawa kit fuselage) except I will be using the Revell kit's wings. I completely agree, while this method may not be "state of the art" like the new Arma Hobby kit, it will still give one a pretty decent kit. I had picked up Eduard's latest photoetch set for the Hasegawa P-51B kit, so toss that in plus a few of the resin sets that I have on hand, I believe that I will have something that will look pretty good on the shelf.
  7. I think MSAP covered this one on their North Africa sheet. It goes back many years, but you can still find it on eBay.
  8. There is no comparison. AZ's kit is a fubared copy of the Revell kit with some modifications. Arma Hobby's kit is new and for all intensive purposes, the most correct P-51B kit available now.
  9. I had no problem placing one into the shopping cart - are you on their website or another's? The link I provided above will take you directly to the conversion set in question (and Schatton's website).
  10. I had the High Flight set, ended up getting rid of it in favour of the Schatton Modellbau one.
  11. Schatton Modellbau makes a wonderful resin conversion which includes an impressive metal gun barrel. I do not remember which kit it is intended for, either Hasegawa or Revell:
  12. Those Special Hobby 109e kits are not exactly "no brainers". Their biggest, most visible flaws are the too wide canopy and too long undercarriage legs that feature downspouts for brake lines. Tamiya's kit still holds it's own. If the slightly too short fuselage bothers one, you can substitute an ICM fuselage or cut the Tamiya fuselage and lengthen it. Whether you chose the Special Hobby kit or Tamiya, both are excellent kits, each requiring some tweaking.
