    A 1/72 Gloster Javelin that isn't rubbish

    I"m fairly sure that Airfix is interested in making a new mold of this in the future, because they've kitted almost every cold war British aircraft by now, with the Tornado, Hunter, Sea Vixen and Javelin in 1/72 still to go, I think. Maybe after the Bucc?

    Question about DC-9-32 wingspans

    Thank you, everyone! Looks like this won't be as easy as it looks. I'll have to take another look at the kit tonight to figure out how to extend the wing chord, but I think chopping the leading edge of the wing off, pivoting the leading edge at the wing tip a few degrees, then filling the resulting space would be the "easiest" way to achieve this, then adding the wingip extension. This makes extending the fuselage fore and aft of the wing the second hardest task, and adding the 3° anhedral the easiest of the tasks. Well, let's see how this goes!

    Question about DC-9-32 wingspans

    Aft stretch is between the wingroot and engine mounts, correct?
  6. Looking at the sprue layout, it does look like it could be kitted as a CAEW variant in the future. One remains hopeful.

    I'll run a tracert tonight, but I suspect AT&T has something to do with it, as I'm a subscriber. I can still access BM via my phone (Verizon) and at work.

    Question about DC-9-32 wingspans

    Hello everyone, This will be my first time posting in the civil section! For my project I'm going to learn to do some basic conversion and decal making - converting the Aurora/Atlantis 1/72 DC-9-10 into a 9-30-F. So other than having to make my own markings, the most significant change would be to lengthen the fuselage by 6.3cm, then add an extra 1.6cm to the wingspan. The fuselage part is easy - but for the wing, can anyone tell me if the wingspan increase also resulted in a longer wingchord, or was it just an extension to the tips? A tip extension would be easy enough. Enlarging the wing overall - that would require some planning. Thanks in advance!
  9. Thanks Duncan! I'm looking forward to it!
  10. It’s the original. There were talks of making an Americanized version but there’s no way it could be done without compromising the characters. As it was, it could have had potential as it was supposedly going to use material that wasn’t released.
  11. As Father Douglas would say, that would be grand! Let me at least reimburse you for postage.
  12. That’s true Steve, but I’ll build it anyway. I got it off the bargain bin for a few bucks, Well aware of the issue. It would be a nice distraction from the AModel and KP kits I just finished
  13. I have the F.3 in 1/72. Looks like I’ll have. To look at the Airfix item and make a pattern out of it.
  14. Hi everyone, much to my annoyance, Trumpeter didn’t include the refueling probe on their Lightning’s. How do I tell which birds were issued the probe? I’m trying to build F.3 XR749/DA of the Lightning Training Flight of RAF Brinbrook. I also intend to build a 74Sdn F.6 based out of Tengah and the Airfix instructions just stick a giant question mark next to the diagram of the probe.
