  1. It's a new KP injection moulded fuselage, cockpit etc which has original wings, undercarriage. A box of two half's! If you look back on the thread there's photos of the new parts. The box art of the International kit has certainly got my attention, I take it that's Egyptian markings.
  2. Depending how accurate you want to be the Kits World ‘Active Screens’ release is close to a GR1, biggest difference for this being the pilots moving map screen is square shaped for a GR4 and round for a GR1. Theres another couple of small square displays top right and left on the GR4 that aren’t on the Gr1 but these will probably be largely hidden under the cockpit dash/coaming.
  3. There's a new current special scheme for the Maryland ANG which is pretty cool also....... http://warbirdsnews.com/warbird-articles/free-state-guard-centennial.html/amp
  4. Yeh I was aware the Reds were continuing with theirs. But the Review originally said in March that the withdrawal of the T1 in the training role would be prior to 2025, which it certainly will be now!
  5. Apparently Hawk T1 out of service brought forward to 31 March 2022!
  6. Although I've built 3 Revell Tornados this is the second successfull build as it's been sitting waiting to be completed. It's Eduards Desert Babe kit which I was lucky to have ordered early on the first run. Wasn't sure what weapons fit to go with and ended up going for 4 x 1000lb bombs from Reskit. Also added AIM-9's from AMK's weapons kit and a Master Pitot probe. Finished with MRP Desert Pink.
  7. A great feat by this crew of two ditching a cargo aircraft in the sea at night and living to tell the tale....... https://news.sky.com/story/boeing-737-cargo-plane-makes-emergency-landing-in-ocean-off-hawaii-12347337
  8. I'm not really a fan of the scheme, from pics I've seen the black appears to be a matt finish which just doesn't look right to me. Would have been much nicer in a gloss black finish, not sure if this couldn't be done due operational reasons with the jet. Quite sure Xtradecal will be along with this and other 2021 display schemes.
  9. I'm not going believe a company would announce their closure in such an amateur manner. I will await further info to be convinced.
  10. Had to check my boxing to remind myself of the decal options and yes the new boxart scheme is not there. So chances are there will be new decals but there is no mention of it in their announcement
  11. The aircraft apparently changed or loaned Squadrons so relevant sqn insignia was applied over the old markings on a temporary basis. Thanks for all the kind comments folks.
  12. I've got a few kits in the nearly finished category and this one is the one I started most recently. Finished first probably because it was such an enjoyable build. Built out the box with Hataka Orange line paints.

    I take it your talking about 1/48 kits seeing as you mentioned the Kitty Hawk kit? I have built the KP (which is the SMER boxing), Kitty Hawk and Hobby Boss UM version. I found the Kitty Hawk to be the best for me but you have the issue of needing to buy an AM shock cone to complete the intake assembly. As long as your careful with construction (I assembled the fuselage half’s before joining the two fuselage half’s together.) You won’t have any issues. Muzz
  14. Welcome back to the hobby, nice Tomcat!
