  1. That is amazing! Thank you for sharing! I was wondering, what is your relation to Richard Klein?
  2. Some BOAC (Civilian operated) Mosquito IVs also appeared in the temperate scheme of Dark Earth, Dark Green, and Sky
  3. You can tell in one of the photos in Mark Davies' thorough comparison of the three modern Lancaster kits on Hyperscale: http://216.187.79.26/2013/reviews/kits/airfixa09007reviewmd_1.htm The comparison of the engine air intakes of the three is towards the end (together with the main wheels) and you can clearly tell that Revell's are much wider and more square than the other two. Similar to the issue with the 1/32 HK Models, discussed here for example. https://forum.largescalemodeller.com/topic/6104-hk-models-132-lancaster-hints-tweaks-and-tips/page/5/
  4. Main issues as far as I'm concerned: Compared to Airfix, the surface detail of the Hasegawa kit is much, much nicer. The Hasegawa kit is easier to build with much better fitting parts than Airfix. Compared to Revell, the Hasegawa shape is more accurate - especially the nacelles, the curve at the rear and the front intakes. The Revell's air intakes are approprate for late-war and post-war versions. The wheels of the Hasegawa kit are much better. The Revell kit's dihedral is not exactly right - Hasegawa is better than Revell here. The Hasegawa has the least amount of interior detail of all three kits. There is a minor inaccuracy with the position of the escape hatch in the main canopy.
  5. brave! This morning I happened to cycle past the crash site of Hampden AE185 - they've put up a monument recently. https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/53211
  6. Yeah Roy Sutherland and Lynn Ritger are also skeptical; on Facebook, Roy just said
  7. So far I've used AMMO for Interior Green, and Dark Earth and Dark Green myself. I quite liked how their Interior Green looks right from the bottle, but I made my own mixes for Dark Earth and Dark Green because I do not like their premade colours for those two. I used these mixes (and the Interior Green from the bottle) for my 1/72 Lancaster - you can see the photos here and I also mention the colours I used for the mixes and the ratios. I might make the Dark Earth a little more brown next time however though. From the bottle, I think Sky looks acceptable and so does Medium Sea Grey, but I've only tested these colours on a small piece of sample plastic. The Ocean Gray looked too light to me when I tested it, so if I do ever use it I'm going to use a darker mix for that. I haven't seen the Middle Stone and Azure Blue so I don't have an opinion on those. One tip: thin AMMO with Hataka acrylic thinner - makes it work really well!
  8. No not quite - I destroyed the D-type nose parts in the process, so I only had parts for a completely nose-less aircraft. Useful parts went into the spares box, the rest have been discarded.
  9. the base is from Noy's Miniatures. The Dodge is a great little build - goes together really easily except the windscreen - take care with that.
