    A20 Havoc / Boston

    You'll definitely want to replace those main wheels. Also, when assembling the fuselage sections, glue the nose halves to their respective main fuselage halves this will help avoid some fit problems in that area. That's for the "bomber" versions, I don't know about the A-20G or the P-70. Eduard had a couple of pretty good sets for them, Vector makes some nice resin for the cockpit and nose sections. True details wheel sets include the liferaft that sits on a shelf behind the pilot. While I like the raft, I think their wheels are to "flat" for my tastes. There are plenty of other aftermarket bits available including conversion, exhausts, intakes, cockpit, etc.

    Looks like you'll have to "take one for the team." Let us know how it works out.

    Meteor NF engine nacelle size

    I keep hoping that Airfix's F.8 was a success and that eventually they'll do a Mk.14.

    Chengdu J-7 color

    I don't see a little smily face after your first sentence, so I assume you're being serious. While the Chinese aircraft, obviously, aren't painted to US FS colors, apparently the FS color is a good match for the Chinese colors. I wonder if the Chinese have an equivalent to FS 595 that's published. Hmmmm…

    Sikorsky/Westland S-55

    I keep hoping that Gallery will do an H-19/S-55 in 1/48 as a follow-up to their very nicely done H-34/S-58.

    Sikorsky/Westland S-55

    Check out Lonestar Models. If Mike West hasn't released his H-19 cockpit set, he ought to be very close. http://www.lonestarmodels.com/store That kit is probably older than most of the guys on this forum. I just turned 60 last fall, and I think the kit originated before I did. This may be worth a look if you're curious: https://www.scalemates.com/products/product.php?id=1092892&p=timeline

    Martin B-10 Interior

    For the kit, when I built mine more than a few decades ago, the only problem I recall having was getting the clear nose part to fit. The AFM does have a virtual tour of the cockpit of the B-10: http://www.nmusafvirtualtour.com/full/z-013.html

    MiG-29A cockpit colour?

    Xtracolour has this color in their range, also. It dries to a nice semi-gloss finish, not glossy like their usual product.

    Need advice:NorthropT T-38 Talon/ F-5 Differences?

    IIRC, at one time (ealry 80s?) Micro-Scale had a decal sheet with NASA T-38 markings.

    RAF Mitchell FR209 post-war markings

    Sorry, I can't agree. That radome appears to be much too small to be a Lancaster H2S dome.

    Revell 1/48 f-15e

    I'd be patient. Keep looking for one, and if you don't find one at a price you're wiling to pay, then wait for Revell to re-release it. I'm sure they will at some point. That's been their modus operandi for some time. Not all kits are in production all the time…

    The Russian Whitley model.

    Instead of varnish, try this: Now, I don't know if it's available where you are, I suspect Hannants may be worth a try. I would test an image I'm not going to use, if it shatters or has other issues, paint another image with the Super Decal Film and test that. All should be fine. You "paint" the rest of the sheet, let it sit for a few minutes (10 minutes, IIRC) then apply as normal. The only difference is, you don't want to cut right up to the image, leave a little around the edges, so you'll have some decal film to attach to the paintwork.

    OV-1A & OV-1C Mohawk questions

    Not necessarily the last word on the topic, but I did find this: http://www.airvectors.net/avmohawk.html#m3

    Airfix Folland Gnat T.1

    Thank you, Giorgio. I should have mentioned that I'd like to see one in 1/48th scale…

    MIG-21UM forward airbrake .. a further question

    Yep, that's the one. I think their H-34 is finished. It's in SVNAF markings (well it was when I was there about three years ago)…
