  1. Hello I decided to add the first 1/144 kit to my stash (since I really have no room for a 1/72 B-36, but love this plane). Little did I realise that getting the canopy "right" would be a major operation, given the number of separate panels and frames. I have a few questions: 1. Apparently a Russian company (AK, or A-squared) has a set of canopy masks specifically developed for the Roden kit, but this is not available anywhere I could find (perhaps for obvious reasons). Do you know of a current source? 2. There is another set of 1/144 masks from EZ Masks. Has anyone tried this with the Roden kit? 3. Failing these; do you know of a way of printing your now masks for this kit? any help will be appreciated
  2. Fortunately this kit was from the time I was a teenager, so the censoring of nose art had not started. The biggest surprise for me was how well the decals worked, even after >30 years. Whoever printed them for Matchbox, great job! Totally different experience with my Hasegawa PV2-7 Neptune, where the decals basically fragmented into a hundred pieces as soon I tried to pull them into place.
  3. A little update on this one. This weekend we just had the first Australian Model Expo since the beginning of the pandemic. This was my first opportunity to show my models in public and compete. And the news is..."Redwing" got first prize in the small scale/ propeller planes (Out of the Box) category!

And the new is...the Gearing got first prize in the large scale/ powered ships category, and "best of brand" for Dragon!
  5. Good rendition of an unusual subject. I am more familiar with the Bubbletops the Brazilian Air Force flew in the Italian campaign. Where did you get the decals?
  6. You got a great result here. Inhale one in the stash but keep postponing given the bad reputation with fuselage warping. How did you find that part of the build? And how did you overcome the fit issues?
  7. Congratulations on the model and the photos. Really top quality.
  8. Thank you. Interesting comparison of the hull shape
  9. Fantastic. Any chance you can post a side by side view comparing the Hood and Bismarck models?
  10. With the hurry of finishing this, I forgot to let you know: yes, I did manage to reattach the crane jib the right way! (pictures above). Thanks for saving me from the embarrassment...
  11. Thanks for the link. It is a superb model. But all those stencils! There is white writing even on top the "star and stripes"! Phantoms must have been the peak of the stencil madness.
  12. The link works, but it would be better to have the picture visible here. Particularly for such lovely model, really great plane and you made it justice. How did you find dealing with the Mach 2 model? They have a reputation of being difficult.
