    Zvezda C-130?

    Fairly sure if they do an H there will be decals everywhere for every nation. An E or H would have the most demand worldwide.
  2. Evidence only shows the first couple hundred Birdcages may have had salmon on them. And on wrecks the only salmon showing on exposed areas was in the tail wheel well.
  3. As others have mentioned, there are newer updates than the link you provided. In regards to the Pensacola Birdcage, it is a real shame they are not restoring it as they found her. For example the main wheel wells had light sea grey paint overtop the salmon. The inside of the engine cowl at the front also should be lsg. The only exposed areas where salmon was showing was the inside the tail wheel.

    Tell them to do an H.
  5. With the announced new tool 1/72 Zvezda C-130 Kit would you consider downsizing the Hercules decals?
  6. I’ve often wondered if we feel Monogram shapes are the accurate standard because we have trained our minds to those shapes because we all built them so often. I know a lot of new tool kits look awful, especially the Trumpeter C-47. But how many errors do the Monogram kits also have? Just a thought.
  7. There are rumors, or were, that the Revell Beaufighter is the Accurate Miniatures kit. So perhaps it was secretly released.
  8. If you are ever confused, early or late, buy this release: https://www.eduard.com/eduard/spitfire-mk-ixc-early-version-(reedition)-1-48.html?cur=2 It has both wings, both intakes, both fins.
  9. Awesome technique for the stressed skin, beautiful build too!
  10. Beautiful work btw, I guessing the two of us may know one another now that I see your location. I frequent the Calgary model shows. I originally thought this build was by a UK modeler.
  11. Not originally, the artist Ray Cryderman originally painted the nose-art with white hair until Russ Bannock saw it and had him change it. Ray passed away from cancer 15-20 years ago, he was a great man. He was my CWO in 418. Ray served many years in the RCAF/CAF and was an avid contributor to Canadian aviation and IPMS Canada. A lot of the postwar Lancaster photographs are his.
  12. Stunning.........I love build threads.
  13. Beautiful work, I love the shading of the panels!
