  1. I would like to concur with this recommendation. I got one second hand from Ebay and found it very nice.
  2. Thanks for all the suggestions! Was thinking about the Hobbyboss kit but as was noted the props are turned the wrong way and the correction kit seems hard to find.
  3. I am looking at getting a 1/72 Dornier Pfeil. What are the best options around?
  4. Yes I think that will be my choice. Thanks!
  5. Thanks, I don’t want to come across as ungrateful, but as I stated in my first post I would - if possible - depict an aircraft on the European or North African theatre. A59-75 SF-Q of 13 Sqn RAAF was as far as I understand it in the Pacific. Would I need to change the armament as Geoffrey suggests?
  6. Thanks but none of those can be built OOTB from the ZTS Plastyk kit I think as one has a different turret and one has the desert engine filters.
  7. Thanks but as I wrote I would prefer RAF or Commonwealth markings.
  8. I see. So, but is the origin of the ZTS Plastyk kit FROG then?
  9. As part of a batch of kits I bought the ZTS Plastyk Lockheed Ventura PV-1 was included. As I understand it this is a re-box of the FROG kit (more well-known while re-boxed by Academy. I would like to build this one as a RAF, RAAF or other Commonwealth version for Europe or North Africa if possible. To do so I need decals (any suggestions?) but is there anything else I need to consider to adjust for it to represent a Ventura V (GR.V)?
  10. Thanks but I stick to 1/72! Was also looking for something more sophisticated than using an Airfix 1/76 Tiger I 8,8 cm gun.
  11. Thanks for the advices and links! I saw the MPM kit and got curious. I haven’t ordered it but have Revell, Airfix and Academy 262’s in my stash. I ordered the Schatton BK 5 cm metal barrel which looks like an excellent thing to add with the pepperpot muzzlebrake.
  12. What is the best option to go for making a 1/72 Me 262 A-1a/U4?
  13. I specifically asked you guys not to tell me to get a different kit. I really want to use the Matchbox kit that I have in my stash and I want to do it with some details (I have ordered the two CMK interior detail sets) as far as aftermarket details allow such as new machine guns etc. That is the fun part for me, heightening the standard of an old kit. Changing the fuselage shape and such is beyond my ambition. I am however thankful for the good advices and will try and look up the mentioned articles and such.
  14. I'll stick with the engines but would be up for a new turret if there is an aftermarket option available.
