  1. I've not had the pleasure of using that brand. Look nice. Measure the sill width of the canopy and a dry fit of the ICM fuselage at the same point.
  2. If you are going for Falcon canopies check the width as ICM were a bit slim at the top of the spine. I put in a wedge of plastic on second build with vacuum transparency. Watching as you go. Grant
  3. The A19-xxx series being British manufacture had a few versions of the Bristol cowl exhaust ring. Most if not all A8-xxx series had late power-eggs shipped from Britain to be installed on the Mk.21 airframes. Hope this doesn't muddy the waters too much. G
  4. I believe that to be correct as I have a spare P-51 tail fin fillet which will not fit any of the P-51B or Cs I've done. G
  5. Heres that drawing which shows the two construction methods. The Mk.I used the left hand method. G
  6. An example of form following function.
  7. Shiny metal Spitfire 5cs. Photos made at Pearce Western Australia in 1945 when Dad was there. G
  8. Well, Darwin Harbour and environs would be tricky even at 1/600 scale. The tidal variations alone would require two sets of scenery for the initial morning raid and the follow-up at noon. The bomb falls and aircraft crashes alone would need a tennis court to encompass. Then there are the shoot-down and strafings as far as Mellville Is. Perhaps 1/2400 may be a better scale? Hold that thought, onward with the Carpathia.
  9. Did it in front of an audience of critical friends. Glad to see it made it home with out moths and leaves getting into your oggin.
  10. Canning Highway, Victoria Park. Western Australia today, Scads of beautifully restored/preserved Austin Healeys making their way through 11:00am traffic. Adhesive badges on doors, so a rally of enthusiasts. G
  11. An Aussie would think 'yeah, nah' and record regardless.
  12. Hi 757flyer, I received that Hakata set and was surprised at how dark the blue is compared to most other brands. It sprays quite nicely but is a bit translucent and glossy, so undercoats and pre shades need to be right prior to finishing. G
