  1. Thanks a lot.. that's a very useful information. Best regards!
  2. Hi all.... Were the B25 Mitchells fitted with lap or shoulder belts, or both of them? TIA and BEST regards
  3. Thanks a lot, gents. All your info have been of great help. Now I'm sure I must discard the old Monogram J, and resume my project using an Accurate Miniatures D as a starting point. Best regards, and have a Happy weekend!!
  4. Thanks for your answer... According to Squadron Signal's In Action, HD326 is a Mitchell III, but some other info in my collection say It's a Mitchell II, as you correctly say. What lead me to a sea of doubts, are the tail gunner and side fuselaje gunners positions, both features from.the B25J. On the other hand, haven't been able tomfind any Pic showing the undersurfaces.....can't figure out about underwing codes or so.... Best regards
  5. Thanks for the info. Anyway, I'll keep searching for some pics of those yellow/black trainers.
  6. Beautiful "Bacalao" (cod). I've been working for years in the old Hobbycraft kit in 1/48 scale. Hope mine turns out half as nice as yours!!!! Cheers

    RAF Mitchell II.

    Hi all.....Does anyone know wich changes were made to the mentioned aircraft when they were received by the RAF? I know they weren't supplied with the Norden bombing sights, but what about the radios? Did they keep the original north american equipment, or were they fitted with British radios instead? TIA and BEST regards from Tenerife!!
  8. Dear Sirs: After a long time away from modelling (in every sense) due to severe health issues, I'm slowly resuming my old builds and "shelf Queens". I'd like to ask for info about the RCAF Mitchell II/III used as trainers during the late 40s, early 50s. Specially regarding those yellow/black aircraft wich looked like target tugs. Any good pics or three views drawings? TIA and BEST regards.
  9. Hi, Sirs.... With Juan just returned from Lebanon, we're able to resume activity, but with some limitations due to the poor condition of some rubber moulds. That listing show the kits still fine, but once the rubber moulds will be damaged, they won't be repeated, so the kits won't be available. BEST regards
  10. Hi, Mike!!! Same wishes for you and your wife from the cold island !!!! Unfortunately, Teide Hobby closed it's Doors and is no longer in the business...Juan is dar away, deployed at Lebanon, and due to the lockdown , the gang doesn't meet as frequently as we'd like to do... Anyway, some new members hace joined our club, such as our German friend Andy Klein, the Guy behind Airdoc Publications, Wingman Models and Double Ugly. On the other Hand, another hobby shop is working hard here in La Laguna, keeping us amused with plenty of Models and supplies. Regarding the Welsh Models kit, it's a Boeing 747, with the short fuselaje and enlarged Wings for long distance flights, in 1/144 scale. Someone mismatched the address...!!! I'm not going to build It at all, so if you want It on your stash, just remind me your address, and to England It Will fly to its new home... BEST wishes, Hope you'll enjoy a peaceful and Happy New Year's Eve....!!
  11. Dear Sir. My apologies for such an upsetting situation. I've been trying to Contact my friend Juan, but he's deployed at Lebanon right now, and comunication is somehow difficult. Nevertheless, I've ordered a PayPal refund. Last time I talked with him, he assured all those shipments were already sent back then. Maybe the canadian postal services strikes those days had some responsability. According to his shipments records, 12 packets were sent to Canadá in early 2019. We cannot Accept any responsability for a damaged or Lost packet once shipped. Anyway, I prefer to loose some money than being called a thief. BEST regards.
  12. The main "problem" with this kit (originally Hobbycraft), much older then the Academy boxing, is the fact that it represents a canadian CT33 Silver Star, with the proper nose for a canadian built T33.
  13. Hi all......to my surprise, the postman brought a wrong model. I think someone out there missed the addressee, and sent me a model I've never ordered or traded. It's a Welsh Models vacuformed Boeing 747. Please, get back in touch with me if you think you mismatched the shipping data. There must be someone out there waiting for a kit that will never arrive...!!!! Best regards.
