  1. I have several eduard mk8 kits. Really great kit. Hopefully they do griffon versions. I see now the shorter nose of the mk12... I eat too much, so maybe a fat spitfire would fit me better! I love 5 blade props!

  3. Hey guys, i changed title to ask a question... i am not a SPITFIRE guy (yet) so dont laugh at me! But can one use the griffon fuselage in the airfix 1/48 mk12 kit with props and bits in the mk14 recce to get a mk14? I bet there is something obvious that i am not aware that also needs to change. I would not be adverse to bashing 3 kits to get the mk14 I want!!! I saw that the mk12 kit has a griffon, but is an earlier fuselage. What more needs to change?
  4. Ok... i checked my stash... i have the newer airfix photo recon mk14 kit, that is a bubbletop. I thought this was a later mark! So how long until airfix makes a proper mk14 spit 14 with a high top standard fuselage? Is that in their plan or any announcements? I am not good enough modeller to cut apart fuselages and cobble a turtleback on this kit.
  5. Thanks for that suggestion. I did not know airfix made a new tool mk14. I have a photo recon low back late mark kit, bit its not a 14. I am not familliar with all the airfix kits, and sometimes run across old tooling in the new red boxes. Can someone post the kit number of the new airfix 1/48 mk14 kit? I did not follow their newer 1/48 kits as I was a '1/72 only' guy up until my eyes and age forced me up to 1/48 about a year ago... Thanks guys!
  6. Hi Guys. I want to know your opinions and experiences with the Academy 1/48 Spitfire mk14... I have heard about inaccuracies. I see there is a resin upper cowl and prop and spinner for it. Does this fix the inaccuracies? This is my favorite mark and i want to build one... Thanks
  7. Hi guys... I am building a Tamiya 1/48 mosquito mkiv bomber. They have 4 nice bombs in the bomb bay. WHAT COLOR should they be? Tamiya kit calls out black green xf27. Recently I used mr color c70 dark green on my Typhoon and it looked ok. Whats the correct color? Did they have any colored striping? Thanks!
  8. I have the sharkit in 1/72 of this. I recently converted to 1/48 because I frankly am too old for 1/72. Eyes, fingers, dexterity with tiny parts had forced me back to 1/48. Where in 1/72 I would build 3 to 5 models a year and have frustration, i now in 1/48 build about 20 models a year and have alot of fun. I wont do every horton, just major versions. Likely this wont be done in 1/48... but I would invest alot in a 1/48 kit of this... i also prefer the original Horten design to the later Junkers design, but would still want it. If it doesnt f
  9. Hi CR... thanks for the replies guys. I started the tamiya mossie yesterday... i am building this one oob, but i do have resin bits saved for a future mkvi. I painted the nacelle as you say yesterday, and have bulkheads silver, doors silver and roof in raf interior green. Fuel cell painting will be challenging, it will be a tough masking job... very fun kit sofar!
