  1. Yep your right and I have the highest regard for Adrians work. I haven’t got the book to hand right now but from memory someone else did the artwork but as you say these things can change quite literally over night.
  2. There’s a colour drawing port side view of 903 in the recent DHC-1 Chipmunk Warpaint 123 by Adrian M Balch showing an undersize serial under the port wing - doesn’t mean of course that the drawing is correct!
  3. I can’t see any mention of the 1/48 Sea Vixen on the Airfix site. Is it still due for re-release this year or am I missing something?
  4. Can’t honestly say there were any problems at all - but then again Ive made quite a few now.
  5. Cheers - not sure about flawless but it was enjoyable
  6. Another variation by Mini Art of their lovely 1/35 Cierva C.30a kit. Mini Art market this one as an ‘early production’ Leo C.30. The early aircraft delivered to the French military were actually Avro built Genet Major powered machines rather than the later true Leo variants (note the Leo built machines were a very different aircraft with a Salmson engine, propellor, a modified nose, tail wheel and additional tail surfaces). I opted for one of the colourful early French Navy machines of 3S2. It’s a lovely scheme and adds a nice splash of colour to the cabinet. The kit includes four options, two French Navy, a single Armee de l’Air and a Belgian Army machine, all as already noted Avro built rather than Leo. Mini Art seem to have also got confused by 3S2 Squadron (French Navy) referring to it throughout the instructions as ‘352’. Love this kit - that’s number five with a sixth already on the bench. Hope it’s of interest.
  7. Latest build for the cabinet is Airfix’s lovely 1/48 Sea Fury done as FB.50 616 of 860 Squadron Royal Netherlands Navy. Quite fancied a quickish build so only added Barracudas replacement engine cowl and Xtradecal sheet 48175. Even so the build dragged on a bit. Have to confess Second World War aircraft types are not really my interest at all but the Sea Fury has always fascinated. Thought lock down might see more time for modelling but the Mrs has had other ideas. She can’t understand why I don’t take as much care with the decorating as I do with the models! Hope it’s of interest. I enjoyed the build so much I’ve bought another two.
  8. Cheers for this. I’ve just about decided to go with FS31136 with a bit of shading and weathering plus the single port side aileron that was presumably cannibalised from one of the two seaters which had day glow outer wing sections.
  9. Hi Yes they had one single seater D-CACY. Found lots of shots of it on the web but I wondered whether some official colour was used. Might even be tempted to do a 1/32 two seater if I can find a Fishermodeks kit that won’t cost me a kidney
  10. Prop powered fighters have never been my thing but I seem to have developed an unhealthy interest in Airfix’s new 1/48 Sea Fury. I’ve ordered a few reference books but in the meantime can anyone confirm which red the Germans used on their target tugs - thanks in advance
