  1. Hopefully this helps- (about halfway down) http://tailhooktopics.blogspot.com
  2. Probably white. They like to use white to have a contrast so if any fluids leak, the leak will be easily spotted.
  3. Actually, a quick check showed some of the pics- http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=429
  4. Hi I vacuformed the parts over wooden molds I carved. I had a build thread on LSP, but the Photobucket debacle wiped out the pics.
  5. If you are reasonably seasoned modeler, you could attempt this method of correcting the kit's intakes- I did it, it wasn't that difficult. http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=21968 Here are mine, in a1/32 FG.1 conversion- http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=33470&p=315784
  6. Hi Tony, thanks for letting me join the GB- I'll build a 1/32 M2F2 lifting body from the 1960s- I'll start a thread when I have something to show. Cheers, Lee
  7. Yes, I have been in contact with him regarding the B-52, he wrote back to me less than a month ago. He sent me the email from this address- Gerald J Elliott <wings@sangereng.fsnet.co.uk> HTH.
  8. I use 2-part foam in many of my vacs, the exothermic reaction isn't nearly hot enough to damage the plastic. I would be concerned about the age of the foam- I have had opened tins of the foam go bad after a few months, which results in costly waste.
  9. Many, many years ago I built this kit OOB... Warts and all, it was one of those kits that were amazingly satisfying to build even though it is quite primitive. Good luck on your build!!
  10. Very nice, I especially like how you fixed the windows- When I last built the kit, when I was a kid, the windscreen and nosecone didn't fit worth a damn. The one on the cover of Scale Modeler was like yours, no seams, and i couldn't for the life of me figure out how he did it back then. Salute!
  11. The TB also lacked the Stanley escape pods, instead being fitted with conventional ejection seats, I don't know what type. The forward 2 seats were mounted off center, so the guy in back had some forward visibility over the shoulder of the guy in the front office.
