  1. Ah that would explain it then, and why the website is no longer. Their decals still seem to be around a plenty , probably just ld stock that is now coming to market buy retailers.
  2. Is there any update on this potential release since there are some varied views on the Mach 2 Kit?
  3. We will have to wait for Saturday now. Such suspense, from this little nugget of 'leaked' information.
  4. I just wonder which VERSION they will release first. They could go like the Victor, early and then later version in a couple of years. A B.1 would be lovely and still sell tonnes, but a B.2 or even a K.2 will sell more.
  5. Managed to get her decalled, matte coated and some exhaust weathering DSC_0001 by stuart wellard, on Flickr
  6. Airfix Dakota Mk.III converted to a C-47a.

  8. Yes thats the two seater version i got as well as this. Both boxings some with the rails and rockets as well. Thanks for the photos and info, duly noted and ill add some detail.
  9. Further update, it seems this is turning into a weekend build of sorts Following on from the attachment of the new nose, attention was drawn to the wing to fuselage join. The instructions suggest the lower section first and then attach the two top sections. i followed the instructions and i predicted a nice gap at the fuselage wing join. The wing needed some fettling to get it to sit rich and needed persuasion to action cement to the fuselage as the trailing edge tends to want to pop away from it. DSC_0001 (1) by stuart wellard, on Flickr In fact adding the wing top sections to the fuselage wasnt that bad, they both needed a bit of persuasion to snuck to the fuselage but as you can see its not bad at all. I also added the new backing plate to the spinner and spinner. You may be able to see that the backing plate is slightly too big for the cowling and spinner so this needs gentle sanding to make it all look symmetrical. DSC_0002 (1) by stuart wellard, on Flickr Canopy and side windows added in place with some canopy glue. Behind the side windows I painted the white of the main camo. A bit more sanding in prep for priming. DSC_0003 (1) by stuart wellard, on Flickr Tamiya tape cut for the masking process DSC_0004 (1) by stuart wellard, on Flickr Added the cowling vent flap? U/C added, had to drill out the holes for the pegs as they weren't deep enough. DSC_0005 (2) by stuart wellard, on Flickr Now ready for priming DSC_0006 (1) by stuart wellard, on Flickr All primed using grey stynlrez DSC_0007 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Sky blue airbrushed on, i chose FS 35414 as a close match. DSC_0008 by stuart wellard, on Flickr White then duly applied, in a rough manner so that its looks hastily applied in the field. DSC_0009 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Earlier today i painted the wheels and exhausts xtream metals aluminum.

  10. Right, progress, First up choppy choppy. nice and easy, just follow the lines. DSC_0001 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Assemble the cockpit floor and bulkhead with seat and CP, test fit the two halves together to see if any further chomping and sanding is required. Then out with the AB with US interior zinc chromate. DSC_0002 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Fuselage cemented together and any required sanding to make this short run kit fit together snugly. DSC_0003 by stuart wellard, on Flickr New engine cowling fitted with cyanoacrylate. Cockpit all dirtied up for the hard ruski winters. DSC_0004 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Pit fitted along with CP ready for the next stage which will be the wing, which straight away isnt shake and bake. DSC_0006 by stuart wellard, on Flickr
  11. Ive not seen them ever released other than from Retrowings and it seemed to be a show special. Instructions and kits are the same apart from the additional rear canopy.
