  1. Hmmm, was thinking about joining this GB to give my mojo a kick up the butt since I've not even sat at my bench for around 6 months now. Looking at a GWH 1/48 T-33 in the stash
  2. New video over @ Andy's Hobby Headquaters Y/T Channel Think i'm gonna buy afew of these for the stash.
  3. They have a limited shelf live. The chemical propertys in the propellants and explosives start to degrade over time,as do the electronics...most are marked with a expiry date,and have a limited amount of flight hours. Biggest threat over Syria has been UAV's better to use up a old stock almost time expired AIM-9M on a drone than a new and very costly AIM-9X.....save them for something else.
  4. I would say yes... I think the CH-53G got new composite rotor blades at some point same as the USAF MH-53J/M's which IIRC have a different tip profile to the earlier blades...that may limit your use of the RH-53D to a certain time frame of Bundeswehr use. But i'm no expert on the type.
  5. Microscale did it decades ago,Twobobs did it more recently but its long OOP
  6. Don't think the ones above wore any unit insignia, I know the Op Crossroads DB-17/QB-17's wore the same as the B-29's.. If I ever get around to doing those I'll pick up a couple Warbird Decals sheet that has Dave's Dream on it for the 58th Wing insignia...plus I want to build the AFWC B-29 option too
  7. Yeah it is surprising they are still fully armed in 1946!...the turrets were quickly removed but it would make for a easier build apart from paint and decals.
  8. Ok...I'm in, Airfix's B-17G Late Please excuse the bad phone pic just a quicky to show the unstarted kit(afew pieces removed from sprues but nothing glued). Colour scheme...well its gonna be post war for something alittle different. I had planned on building maybe 2 or 3 kits for this GB but since I'm already late to the party I'll now just concentrate on one. The original choices were a B-17G from the AWFC(All Weather Flying Center) based at Clinton County Air Base,Ohio between 1946-49 for Project Thunderstorm were they gathered data on Thunderstorms and chased Tornado's and flew other adverse Weather missions. The other options were 1950's Drones in either the yellow/orange with black stripes or the red/white scheme maybe with the added wing tip pods. Well I guess I'll make a start and make the final choice when it comes time to close up the fuselage as I'll need to fair over the removed gun turrets on the Drones. Cheers for now, Gary/Mungo1974
  9. Been distracted with real life of late so haven't been visiting BM regularly.....Hence.....I Forgot all about this GB! I do however have a handful of 1/72 Airfix/Revell B-17F/G's in the stash so may still enter something.
  10. Thats going on the Christmas list... Just wish Revell would also re-pop the AN-124 Ruslan,with this upcoming release I now regret trading mine away afew years ago
  11. Is it just the camera angle or my eyes but those wingtips look alittle strange. Also a nasty seam on that nose turret glazing same as the old Monogram 48th kit,would have hoped in this day and age you'd be able to mould the clear turret parts better than that. That being said i'm a Norfolk lad,and given how many Liberators flew from bases local to me during the war...there's little doubt one will end up in my stash
  12. Tan Model at one time said they were gonna do a 1/48 T-37. I think they even had images on their Facebook page of a Turkish museum bird they were using to LIDAR. I was hopeful at the time...however Tan Model have promised us much and delivered very little so far. But yes we do need a 1/48 Tweet!
  13. Wish they would re-pop it too Seemed to sell out almost immediately compared to the other Centurion boxings
