  1. They post links on their FB, -> direct download link 1/32 P.11c - www.ibgmodels.com/instr/32002.pdf
  2. Trolling, eh? No, people don't beg for new kit from Eduard. People try to guess when it be available. So you answered yourself: because you dislike 1/72 scale, you can't understand why other people like it. So why writing here about it? Just imagine, there are people do like 1/72, and German subjects are buildable for them. They can do small spots you can't. They don't think about 1/72 scale as toys. I could say 1/72 is true man's scale because you need skills to build them nice. Oh, how about "1/48 is too easy for me and even 1/32 is a big toy for people with big clumsy fingers". B
  3. Gents, I understand it is rumour thread, but in this case we have clear information from Mr. Sulc. Question is not IF they do Bf-109 in 1/72, but rather WHEN. here "1:72 Bf-109 series is essentially in queue, we just [have to] finish the S-199 / CS-199 / Bf 109G-12 1:48 project, then do one more simple conversion, and then 1/72" here "Personally, I think we'll do the Fw-190D in 1/72 as well. As for the Bf 109F / G / K, yes, we will make them in 1/72 as in 1/48."
  4. IBG words: IBG Models 1/32 PZL P.11c will hit the stores in the very last days of February, so depending on your location you can expect it then, or in a first days of March. The model will be available in 2 editions: - standard, full plastic + PE parts, 3 sets of markings - limited, as standard set with additional 4 turned metal barrels for the machine guns (Master production), resin figure of a pilot and 1 extra set of markings. Final, exact price will be revealed in a couple of days, preorders on IBG webstore and other model shops should be opened around that time
  5. AaCee, Your assumptions are all correct. But, shouldn't that be discussed in an separate thread? This is about Brengun. I mean, subject may be confusing. First, facts and my own comments. Speaking only on wings (so far): - yes, all Yak-1/3/7/9 family is evolved from yak-1. Yak-3 aside, it is smaller, redesigned version of the wing. Yak-9 had redesigned wing tip with straight trailing edge almost to the end of wing, so again aside. Yak-1, Yak-1b and Yak-7 had the same outline, differing on the wheel wells/landing gears, fuel tanks and flaps. Especially Yak-1 a
  6. Indeed. I am talking about completely different problem, and not strictly about fuselage construction. Well, I took an impression the only you proved is fact you are not reading carefully. I am talking about general length of both models P.11c and P.24 and "45cm extension" which does not apply to serial P.24 - basic fuselage except engine, was not longer than P11c. At this point all this explanation has no connection to the internal structure overall, and no connection to 45cm truss before cockpit. My intention is to explain that change of the cockpit section structure has not a
  7. Well, I'd say, to deny commonly accepted information, that you should prove it wrong? But, of course, take my hand: it is good to start with reading books. It is not strange than most books about P.24 were written the same author, Mr. Glass - so if you take one, you have the same information included in the other ones. You can choose what to read: Andrzej Glass - Militaria no. 2 - PZL P.24 Andrzej Glass - Kagero no. 3007 - PZL P.24 A-G (it is the same as Monograph no.66) Andrzej Glass - ZP Grupa - Polskie Konstrukcje Lotnicze no.1 - Samoloty myśliwskie PZL P.11, PZL P.24 Andrzej
  8. Grzegorz, It is generally accepted information P.24 used P11c fuselage rather than P11a which was an older solution with cockpit arrangement in lower position. However semi-skinned cockpit part system has been chosen for P24, it would be oversimplification to state whole P11a fuselage was taken. It is an mix of P11c fuselage geometry with cockpit arrangement (pilot seat in higher position) and it's (P11c) tail together with P11a cockpit skinning construction system.
  9. Gents, Let me explain where the "45cm insert problem" lies. Book mentioned above is excellent and is also the best source about P.24 ever written. Without doubt Mr. Glass (author) is one of most important experts on the history of Polish aviation. Of course information included there is correct according to all current historical knowledge but - and - of course it does not mean it can't contain errors, especially in drawings. Problem lays in your understanding of author words. To correctly understand this book, you have to know the genealogy of both projects: P.11 and P.24 (covered i
  10. Ok, I read that Bentley text and I find it very important, moreover it is universal, IMHO all factory plans should be treaten carefully with distrust to some extent. BUT. Considering only that part we're speaking, it is on the one drawing and lays very good on the plane pictures when compared. I think it can be enough to modeller's consideration, but I am not finding there answers to my questions, that's why asking here. So let's put Hawker plan aside. digression #1 - Arma Hobby is proud with fact their model has been designed on Hawker plans basis. Considering Bentley text citated
  11. Gentlemen - thank you for wide explanation about canopy, very nice shot of the warbird. My assumption is, that only bottom part (to be precise: bottom corners) of the hood changed wideness, and top (curved part above two horizontal bars) of the hood stay unchanged during operation. Is that correct? On the Hawker factory plan of the rails, dimensions are shown, but they are obviously not the same as a hood dimensions. Drawing of the hood show it in a neutral position, i.e. with parallel bottom edges. Do you have knowledge about hood external dimensions when atached in place? Acc
  12. One quick question. From Arma Hobby topic: So we have quite nice model, and most commented part was canopy. I noted strange shape of the "open" canopy part, but "closed" variant is making me suspicious as well. Q: can anybody explain HOW sliding hood changed during operation on the real thing? I mean, how it looked like when closed, how when open, what part (of it) changed shape, and how changed. I looked at many pictures and they are inconsistent, also fact that all restored flying machines have that part modified does not help. In the AH model, closed part has narrow
  13. You should note here that "both above and under the wing" is incorrect and "on underside they are totally omitted" is correct. To my best knowledge FLY kit does have flat fairings over wing connection (on top, bottom are correctly "totally omitted" too), so your comment about above/under wing placement as well as cross-section is missed or misguided?
