  1. Made some progress the last couple days. A little cleaning up left to do on the fuselage, it’s just sitting on the wing for now. I also need to do some trimming at the wing root to get a little dihedral. Carry on!
  2. Got started on some interior painting the other day. Been a bit under the weather so lost some momentum, but hopefully can get back to it tomorrow. Tamiya P-38 in progress.
  3. Spent a few hours this weekend cutting and cleaning, test fitting where I could. Detail is adequate and maybe a little overdone in a couple places. Plastic is incredibly soft so care needs to be taken when cutting and sanding, but it should build into a nice model. Heres a pic of the decal sheet and side views of the three options. They are very nicely done, thin, and separate which is a nice feature. Thinking I’ll do SE-CAD. Here is a link to Rebell Hobby: https://www.rebell.com/saab-91-safir-b-promotion.html
  4. A little late to the party but thought I might join in with the SAAB 91 Safir from Tarangus. I found a nice set of decals at Rebell Hobby of the Safir from IPMS Östergötland showing three B model promotion types. This kit has been on the disposal pile for the last couple months but this GB has given it a new lease on life! Not sure which one I’ll attempt yet but hope to get started on it soon! Geoff
  5. Keith, I have one I would sell to you if you are interested, I’ll probably never get around to building it! I live in the USA so shipping might be pricy, but you can contact me off board if you’d like and we can discuss. I'm not a hobby shop, just a knucklehead that has far too many kits and not enough time to build them! If posting like this is frowned upon my apologies. Let me know and I will delete! Cheers, Geoff
  6. I just received the civilian Gull kit and it is quite nice! Unfortunately as you’ve noted there are no color call outs, which is frustrating to say the least. I was thinking I’d do Beryl Markham’s VP-KCC, any thoughts on the blue? I initially was leaning towards a French Blue based on the box cover, but after viewing the pictures posted on their web site it seems almost a more turquoise color. I admit I haven’t done any digging yet, so I apologize if there is some discussion out there about this. Would love to hear your ideas and recommendations! Geoff
  7. Finished up the Balatan resin kit of the Lockheed Sirius "Tingmissartoq" for a group build elsewhere on the internet and thought I would share here. Well molded kit, only let down by canopy, misspelled decal and strange looking prop blades. Apologies for the dark photos! Geoff

  9. Six new Camel kits coming soon! Good thing I saved all my spare change for 20+ years! Geoff
  10. That's perfect DC! Indeed, very interesting and something I was not aware of. Thanks much! Geoff
  11. Question regarding color(or colour!) scheme of the Albacore during Operation Torch in November 1942. Looking at the DP Casper decal sheet 48007 it shows both the Albacore and Swordfish having the Dark Slate Grey/Extra Dark Sea Grey uppers, but also shows the upper surface of the lower wings to be Light Slate Grey/Dark Sea Grey. Was this standard practice or just typical of that operation? I cannot find any confirmation of this in my references and have not seen this before, so I tend to doubt the color call outs. Any thoughts or ideas, or point me in the general direction and give me a push?! Thanks much and apologies if this has been discussed already! Geoff
