  1. Hello all, thankyou for all of your help it's much appreciated. I have been able to track down the Magna Models conversion set now thanks to a member of this site Looking forward to building this conversion as it'll be my first civil subject I've built (I normally build WW2 allied subjects). I'll keep everyone posted!
  2. I've had a look on the Blackbird models website, nothing listed. I think I'm going to try and make the various mods myself and scratchbuild it. Just need to find some civil decals.
  3. Hi all, thankyou for your help. I'd heard about the Magna Models conversion but haven't been able to find one yet, I'm hoping that Freightdog models may release it again as I'm sure I've seen the same conversion under their name. Don't suppose anyone has or know's the dimensions of the bomb bay cargo bulge so that I could work out how to scale it down to 1/72? I'm thinking I might be able to make it out of multiple layers of plastic card sanded to shape.
  4. Hi all, I am thinking about possibly converting an Airfix Halifax to represent a Halton. Does anyone know of anyone who produces a conversion set or decals for these aircraft? I think I can probably do the conversion without a dedicated set but decals could end up being the larger problem. Thanks, Matt.
  5. Maybe, I wondered about cutting a normal mosquito exhaust shroud and adding a piece into it too lengthen it, pretty sure I've got another set from a previous build somewhere. The photos shows the nf.xxx I want to build with covered exhausts.
  6. Hi all, I had thought about using the parts from the new Airfix mosquito and the tamiya one, just wasn't 100% sure how well they'd mate together and wouldn't want to waste a kit. The exhausts were a problem I'd thought about wasn't really sure how to get around that. Don't suppose anyone knows when Special Hobby are releasing their Mosquito? I've read on and off for ages that they were going to release one but nothing yet.
  7. Hi all, I am possibly looking to build an Mosquito NF.XXX of the USAAF in Italy at the near end of the war using the 1/72 Tamiya Mosquito NF.XVII kit and a conversion set of two stage merlin engines. (Photo of the Mosquito is on the link below, can't get the image to upload for some reason) https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/86905467798409808/ I heard that the Brengun engines are good but have some fit issues, if not I was thinking of using the Blackbird models conversion set if they come back into stock. Has anyone had experience of using any of these conversions? If so how did you get on? Also does anyone know of a set of decals/ masks for a USAAF Mosquito NF.XXX? I highly doubt there are any but thought it might be worth asking. Cheers, Matt.
  8. Hi Richard, That's brilliant thanks, given me a few ideas.
  9. Hi all, I'm currently building GWH's 1/144 Avro Vulcan K2 with the Aerowings bomb bay set and the Master models refueling probe. I'm intending finish the aircraft as XH558 when it was a K2 tanker and would like to display it in a diorama. I've been trying to find some images of Vulcan K2 tankers during maintenance but haven't been able to find any. Wondered if any of you kind people may have some or know where to find any? Cheers, Matt.
