    Two Bobs Arctic Bandits

    Have you tried to email twobobs and ask them directly? They are pretty good for helping out.

    Pzr IV/70(A) Sd.Kfz.162/1

    Interesting. I guess I am so used to most kits that have the running gear attach quite firmly sitting true. Can you rotate the drive sprockets at that stage? do they allow for you to better position and attach the tracks?

    Looking good, but what happened to that drive sprocket? - it's sitting rather cockeyed isn't it?

    Airfix Ju87 Stuka 1/72 - Finished

    You may want to be aware that the Stuka had both internal and external framing for the canopy. Many modellers mask the internal canopy frames as external ones (it does not help that most if not all model companies compound that error by molding the internal frames externally). I've added a picture from an LSP where the modeller has correctly depicted the canopy frames. HTH.

    Canadian Air Force CC-142 (dash 8) questions

    Didn't see the harm in presenting a superior option to the CanMilAir one that was suggested - don't you think it's always good to be aware of other (better) choices? Reading things with such a narrow and constricted view, one can miss out on something else that may prove more appealing.

    Canadian Air Force CC-142 (dash 8) questions

    Personally, I am not a big fan of CanMilAir. Whether its that he uses an Alps printing system or that he takes a 2-D image and creates a decal that is to be applied to a 3-D item. If you can find Leading Edge's resin and decal set, you will be very happy with it.
  9. I think you need to lighten up on the primer...

    Canadian armour Battle of the Scheldt

    Peddinghaus makes several decal sheets with Canadian armour markings. None are specific to the Battle of the Scheldt, but they do contain elements of the units involved. Hope this helps.

    Spitfire Mk.V into a MK.IX

    That is an actual complete resin kit (and a very pricey one at that if still available). Beard 's link to Freightdog Models is of an actual conversion set. The Freightdog Models piece strikes me as a better alternative not just in terms of cost but also when it comes down to assembly. I find it more easy to work with a plastic model kit that to be messing around with a resin kit that requires a lot more clean up and test fitting of parts plus mucking around using CA glue.

    Thanks Roman. Where did you get the resin set?

    AZ models P-36 kits; are all the same plastic in the box?

    Fantastic! Thanks Mike. I appreciate all that info. It certainly makes this a lot easier now.

    AZ models P-36 kits; are all the same plastic in the box?

    Thank you Jure.
  15. Can anyone confirm if the AZ model P-36 kits are all the same regardless of boxing? - ie, the same sprues regardless of what it is packaged in the box as but with just different decals depending on the boxing? I want to build a Finnish P-36 and have an opportunity for a P-36A or P-36C kit at a reasonable price. I hope that I can build either as the Finnish version.
