  1. Copy available here: Page 1 https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SqsoVDi1OWqqbUQp_q1ud4uadvqb1YXb/view?usp=sharing Page 2 https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uLPdcczC98lF4dwgVOW3Pw2L6TL8guC2/view?usp=sharing Page 3 https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FQSdRgFoz02RkW-c_tU-DYWYKpgLnkwO/view?usp=sharing
  2. I do have a copy, but I won't be able to scan it until Sunday.
  3. March 1979. It has a yellow background to the cover of Max Longhurst's "Carabiniers" vignette. I have dug my copy out, but I won't be able to do a scan of the article until next Sunday. Yes, it was US Marines legs and arms, 8th Army torso and head, and a scratchbuilt slouch hat, with various plastic card additions to the uniform.
  4. Alan Hall did a couple of Anson conversions in Airfix Magazine in 1971 where he recommended using FROG Oxford engines. One of them is in the Internet Archive here.
  5. I think the reason that Airfix did the 2F1 is that Culley's real Ship's Camel was in the Imperial War Museum, and Lambeth wasn't that far to go from Wandsworth to do the research. The Bristol Fighter and R.E.8 were in the IWM as well in the 1950s, I believe (I didn't visit it back then as it was before I was born ).
  6. Like the Seaview, this one was an Aurora kit originally. Although Monogram didn't reissue the Seaview, Polar Lights did, around 20 years ago.
  7. What I read somewhere was that pilots would tend to aim halfway between the national insignia, so if the insignia was asymmetric, they would miss the fuselage. I can't remember where I got that from though, so it could be complete rubbish.
  8. This was one of the very first Revell aircraft kits, issued in 1953 along with the Starfire and Cougar. This is the revised 1954 issue, with an open cockpit with pilot, landing gear and rivet detail added, the wings moulded in two halves and the fuselage shape modified from the -1 to the -3 variant.
  9. The Airfix website says preorder for Autumn release, so probably another couple of months at least.
  10. The Anniversary set is advertised in the new Airfix Modelworld - Operation Jubilee Dieppe Raid 1942 billed as Hurricane IIA/B/C, though only two Hurricanes are included with 8 decal schemes.
  11. There was never an Alan Hall article on this conversion in Airfix Magazine (all of Alan's conversion articles were based on Airfix kits for obvious reasons...). I think it was done by Bill Matthews in Flying Review International, but I'd have to dig out my back issues of that title.
  12. There's a link to both UK hit versions of the song in the eighth post in the thread...
  13. Looking at the instruction sheet for your kit on the Revell website, it certainly looks like one of their 1950s designs. The flat, low draught bottom of the hull is a bit of a giveaway. As Scalemates is constructed by its users, information on it is not always complete or accurate.
