  1. Good russian source of photos with 2 downloadable drawings: http://www.airwar.ru/enc/sww2/she2.html Russian Modelist-Konstruktor article with excellent detail drawings: http://hobbyport.ru/avia/sh_2.htm

    1/72 B-17

    Photo of B-17C floor is interesting. Maybe it's only mee but it doesn't look as one piece floor but rather that small floor plates after pilot seats are simply bolted to the seat frame. Also intererestingly there are some weapons loadout drawings (even the very crude Emergency exit plan drawing has step) that show stepped floor for C and D (towards bottom of this page) : http://warbirdinformationexchange.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=248545
  3. Just a suggestion. It would be nice if Airfix would add Egyptian air to ground missiles and fuel tanks
  4. My humble sugestions 1/144 soviet WW2 submarine series: - series X and series Xbis Schuka class submarines - series Vbis - needs only new connig tower really- i don't understand why only series V was made - the only type that didn't see the action (all being part of Pacific fleet) good model tough, series Vbis-2 Schuka class , - series XII - M class submarine, - A class submarine (modernised American Holland - class) 1/72 - G-5 class torpedo boat - D class torpedo boat - BK-1125 gunboat - basicly scaling down to 1/72 of all your coming 1/48 aircraft and helicopter projects
  5. You also have PART PE sets for Gran kits (usable for other kits as well) S72 134 La-11: S72 133 La-9:
  6. SMER Il-2 (IMHO the most under rated Il-2 kit) has 2x FAB-100 and 2x FAB-500(?). Also UM-Pe-2 series and ICM SB kits are good way to fill up spares box with RE soviet bombs (and machine guns).
  7. KORA models i belive does early FAB-50 and AO-25 in 1/72
  8. Yes i missed that. PART really should update their site.
  9. I did ZTS kit long ago. Not that bad but not to up to date standards RE detail and fit. Bought IBG recently looks great. BTW there are a couple of PART PE sets that could be adapted to new kits. I expect that Eduard Will make some sets for these new kits but in meantime: S72 049 PZL P-37 Łoś (exterior) S72 050 PZL P-37 Łoś (interior)

    Old Airfix Do17E

    Nice kit. Softer scribed lines small amount of rivets (airfix riveter was on vacation that day), nice canvas under wings AFAIK there is a bit of a hump on fuselage - wing joint but nothing a file and sandpaper wouldn't cure. BTW While there is no interior Extratech produced a rather comprehensive PE set for this kit which included quite comprehensive cockpit detail.
  11. I would like to note that second trumpeter kit of T-28 apeared in my stash. T-28 (riveted) kit no. 07151. the only difference is the turret sprue which includes conical turret with longer L-10 gun for model 1940 (despite artwork and camo schemes showing cylindrical turret with L10 gun) and a bit diffrent side tool boxes which are identical to LH side box of tanks produced 1936-38.
  12. I see only one problem with this kit: It isn't in one true scale. Looks great. Now repeate the excercise in 1/72
  13. I would second the AB-47J especcialy in 1/72 (well amy scale would do if "one true scale" won't be made). It was first helicopter in Slovenia police helicopter unit https://www.airplane-pictures.net/registration.php?p=YU-HAK A new good model of Gazelle would be much appreciated escepccialy for yugoslav AF with Malyutka AT missiles and civilian version (on which i worked for a year)

    UM kits any good?

    UM-UMT is basicly the same company. My experiances with their kits Their AT guns are excellent (except the supposed wire rims on 45mm - you also get steel rimed wheels). Small guns like 45mm have multipart PE shield T-34 series and derivates are quite good acctually, but they gave wheels as plastic rim and rubber with hard plastic link&lenght track. A rather wierd but if you are in dioramas very helpfull if you want to do burned wheels (saves a lot of sanding). GAZ series of trucks and derivates are best/only in scale but BA armored truck do need some work (rivets, correcting the doors etc.). Their rubber tires are really nice for this scale. BT, T-26 and T-70 (T-70, SU-76/76M, ZSU-37) series are also good. Su-76M needs some detailing in fighting compartment. T-26 series has best to scale hard plastic link&lenght track i worked with (but they are very fiddly) and they also sell them seperatly (for those who bought Mirage FtF T-26/Vickers series) ZIS-2/3, GAZ-AA/AAA trucks and T-26 are AFAIK SKIF moulds a bit updated (T-26 series) Also there is multitude of turned aluminum gun barrels available for their kits as well as some PE sets (PART mostly) Generally good models. Some need a wee bit more detailing but are rather cheep. Bit of advice trucks, armored cars and T-34 have rubber tires. I was advised to paint the rims under the rubber before the rubber is put on as the plastic and rubber can react on long term (havent seen it yet but better safe than sorry).
  15. Just for clarification if you are talking about small triangular intake old 1/72 TOKO/Eastern Ekspress kit has it
