  1. So for an Aer Lingus Viking 1B the best starting point is the Royal Flight boxing of the Valom Kit? I didn't know the wings were different on the Viking 1A. Did Valom update the wings as well as the fuselages between the various boxings? I can cut out windows but as Moggy said cutting two fuselages at exactly the right angle and joining them square and true has never worked for me in the past! Cheers Joe
  2. Delighted to see Dora Wings is going to produce a Norseman in 1/72. I would echo others here and suggest a new DHC-2 Beaver in any scale would be most welcome. An injection moulded Max Holste Broussard would also be nice to see.
  3. The actual colour used was a gloss dark green Akzo Nobel 042002 which is virtually identical to Forest Green FS 14079 used on many US aircraft. Hannants have it in gloss in their Xtracolor and Xtracrylic ranges. See link below: https://www.hannants.co.uk/search/index.php?adv=1&product_category_id=&product_division_id=&manufacturer_id=&product_type_id=&code=&scale_id=&keyword_search=FS+14079&setPerPage=25&sort=0&search_direction=0&restore_search=&save_search_active=yes&save_search_name=&save_search= Hope this helps.

  4. I hope they provide the Bremen version at some stage with the inline engine Regards, Joe
  5. As far as I know 163 was only ever in the grey-green. It was in that scheme when it was sold and given a UK registration. Of course it may have been silver at some stage but definitely grey-green when sold. I've seen photos of 162 in silver but not the others. Best regards, Joe
  6. Is there a fin fillet included for a P-51C? I see it on the CAD but not on the sprue layout. Cheers, Joe
  7. Hi Eamonn, I never released a decal sheet for an Aer Lingus Viking mainly because I hadn't enough information on the colour scheme. The Aer Lingus Vikings had a wide green cheatline and lettering outlined in another colour, possibly gold or another shade of green. With no colour photos to go on I've held back hoping some new information will emerge in time. Regards, Joe
  8. I'd like to build an Aer Lingus Viking 1B which had the longer fuselage. Do you think it would be possible to graft a section form the original Valetta fuselage that comes in the box to get the extra length on the Viking fuselage? I would be interested in seeing what's in the box. Thanks Joe
  9. Hi all, It turns out that this style of prop is included (along with a different type) in the Roden Sopwith 11/2 strutter kits. If anyone is happy to part with one please let me know via PM and we can come to some arrangement. Best regards, Joe
  10. Hi all, I'm looking for a prop for an Avro 504K propeller in 1/46 scale as per the image below. The same type was used on as Sopwith 1 1/2 strutter. Does anyone make one (aeroclub?) or know where I could get one? Thanks, Joe
  11. Thanks for the feedback on this topic.it's been very helpful. Cheers, Joe
  12. Hi, Just a quick question on the major external differences between the RN Westland Whirlwind HAR9 and the RAF HAR 10. Did the RN HAR 9 have the under fuselage recess for a torpedo like the earlier HAS 7? I know the RAF HAR 10 did not have this feature. I'm planning to convert the Italeri H-19 into a HAR 9 as used in the Antarctic on HMS Protector. Any help with this question greatly appreciated. Cheers, Joe
  13. What an interesting topic! I've been interested in antarctic aviation for years and I've produced a few decal sheets with Antarctica as a theme including sheets for Beavers, Otter and LC-130 Hercules and some helicopters used in Antarctica. Most are sold out at the moment but see the Antarctic helicopter sheet at http://www.maxdecals.com/webpages/max7222.html As regards early light aircraft used in the exploration of Antarctica many are available in kit form but in some cases I'm not sure of the exact markings carried. My quick list shown below. 1928: Hubert Wilki
  14. Hi Nige, Thanks for that info. It will be the left seat that will be shown as "ejected" when I get this model built. Regards, Joe
  15. Thanks Selwyn. That is very helpful. Must have been quite a bang and flash for the guy sitting next to the ejectee. Best regards, Joe
