    Airfix JU88

    What about Zvezda's Ju-88A-5? It's essentially the same as the A-1 in most respects, cutting down the wing would be pretty straightforward. Cheers, Bill.

    Airfix JU88

    The A-5 has the same long span wing as the A-4, the A-1 has the short span wings. Airfix has the long span wings.
  3. I don't see any shortage of nazi decals in the marketplace...

    V1 kits?

    I can't help you with anything positive, but the Tamiya kit is VERY poor in terms of accuracy. I'm sure that there are better modern alternatives if accuracy concerns you, Cheers, Bill.
  5. Early stages on a Seafire MkIII kitbash in 1/32. Data I've read for both aircraft show a 10'9" Rotol propeller specified. To my eye they both look the same in photographs, but am I missing anything? Cheers, Bill.
  6. That's my approach to buying Airfix now. I used to buy a lot at shows and through mail order, but I've moved to buying Airfix only from retailers I can go back to easily. Cheers, Bill.
  7. Just a month? After 6 months of waiting, they eventually told me they couldn't supply a replacement canopy for my Sea Fury and to take it back to the dealer I bought it from. It previously took over a year to get clear parts for the 1/72 Blenheim IV. Cheers, Bill.
  8. I just checked my account and my order (placed 01/12/2018) is still showing "in progress". Is this timescale typical? Cheers, Bill.
  9. How did you get your tracking number? I've not received one... Cheers, Bill.
  10. The Hurricane mailing list is a seperate subscription, the direct link was sent out in an email I received on Friday. Somewhere on BM I'm sure Wotjek posted about the Hurricane subscription, but I can't find the link... Cheers, Bill.
  11. Put stuff in your basket and state your country, it will give you the postal rate before you have to commit to putting in your details, Cheers, Bill.
  12. The Eduard website includes images of the kit parts, including the decal sheet. Looks like you'll need to find wing roundels and RWB tail stripes at least for any additional builds. Presumably the same will apply to the stencils, though the image isn't big enough to confirm, Cheers, Bill.
  13. My initial reaction was "not for me", but it didn't take me long to think of upscaling those Eduard FAA Hellcats I've not got around to building yet... Cheers, Bill.
  14. Looks like the Mk.1c we already have to my eye...
  15. How does the shape of the nose measure out? I understand the research material was shared between Eduard and Special Hobby, and used towards the latter's 1/32 Tempests. The Special Hobby kits have a somewhat bloated nose profile, with enlarged spinner diameter, I wondered if this had been taken account of in Eduard's use of the data, Cheers, Bill.
