  1. If it is kit 84138 then you almost certainly have all the parts in the kit do do any of the Eduard IXe builds - look at their website for other IXe kit instructions. Your kit has the same parts as the IXe profipack and the Velveta (Israeli) special.
  2. the Valiant Airframe Detail book (No 5 - Defiant) on Page 59 explicitly says that the aerial wires were deleted when the TR.1133A radios (VHF) were fitted, replacing the TR.9D. It merely states that this was on 'later machines".
  3. On the GR3 the plates are right angled (as above picture) so the flat plate is glued to the wings. The Airwaves GR3/FRS etch had the same form - so there is a nice flat plate to glue to the wing - if you can get them folded and located that is without the carpet monster intervening. Unfortunatley it looks as if the GR5/7/9 had simpler vertical plates (images in the Fox Two Harrier book)
  4. Revell 48th Tornado (GR4) and Typhoon (Eurofighter) - need it but nowhere near as much as Revell suggest. It would be really helpful if reviewers that say "I used x gm lead to prevent tail sitting" would then say if this was a reasonable amount, was the result really nose heavy, about right or not enough.
  5. Hannants suggest November 2019 (presumably UK availabilty, other parts of the world may differ!) - As do Airfix on their website
  6. The airfix pylons look very much like the outer pylons shown in photos in SAM MDF 16, Hunter, on pages 94 and 95. These are shown attached to the 100 gallon tanks. The Academy ones look similar to the inboard pylons shown on the same pages. (I can't compare the Academy inboard and outboard pylons for their F6 kit - I've built it with only inboard pylons)
  7. Try Mission Mark: http://www.missionmarkdecals.com/decals/48003.html or maybe Mark ! Dozen Set: http://www.4pluspublications.com/en/publications/53-panavia-tornado-colours-and-markings Maybe Syhart?
  8. The Dragon kit (4606) doesn't include a FLIR lump but does include the LRMTS (stbd side lump).
  9. For the Tornado GR4, RetroWings do the LRMTS (item RW44007) if shaping some sprue is too delicate an operation at this scale.
  10. For a matt finish the Alclad Klear Kote Matt works and sprays well (after a thorough shake).
  11. Yup, and the Spanish call it EF-2000 Tifon, it was EFA until the renegotiations in 1992 when it became EuroFighter-2000 (or New EFA), Italian single seaters are/were F-2000A, two seater TF-2000a. The early Revell 48th kit was of an RB199 powered prototype.
  12. I gather that there have been no (external) shape design changes to production (UK) EJ200 engines. Materials (and hence colour) have changed. I now see that the Aires exhausts are all 1:32 and labelled EF2000A (not EJ200, remember that EJ200 is not the only engine to have flown in a Eurofighter Typhoon or EF2000). Most ofmy information is redundant as I know little about the 1:32 kits (I build 1:48). If I have wasted anyone's time, sorry.
  13. IKEA sell their glass shelves as separate packs - a lot cheaper than getting some made. If you make your own cabinet you could size it to take these shelves.
  14. The early prototype Eurofigighter were fitted with the RB199 engine from the Tornado. These early aircraft are those represented in the early Revell/Italeri kits (the ones with 4 cooling ducts under the rear wing/fuselage rather than the two fitted to the EJ200 powered aircraft). This might be what is meant by early late?
