  1. Very nice Twin Huey Shame KH never bothered putting the correct wide cord UH-1N main rotor blades in the kit
  2. Hope they put alittle more effort into the surface detail on this one unlike the recent 1/48 Hind
  3. So many schemes and variants...Hopefully Zvezda will deliver with other versions too, Hungarian low viz would be nice as the current available sheets weren't great. Macedonian splinter scheme will I hope make the trip from 1/72 to 1/48 Peru in the overall grey scheme with low viz sharkmouths And would also like to see decals for the Mil demo Hinds in the digital scheme..love 'em or hate 'em And finally although not needed for this boxing..hopefully we'll see a Mi-35 down the line so maybe the new Serbian helo's
  4. I need to find me one of those Aoshima C-2's at some point
  5. Need to get back to this one and the P-51H now it's not so crazy at work and the festive holidays are over and done with.
  6. Ohh... That's nice are they replacing the Hornets? Same paint job too
  7. Fundekals in the States does G-Fury on one of their Sea Fury sheets. http://www.fundekals.com/seaFury2.html
  8. Flanker Virgin noob question In modelling terms what if any are the differences between the SU-30MKK and the J-16? Also are the fins in Trumpys 72nd MKK kit too short do I need the resin replacements Cheers
  9. Got the original boxing on the bench right now for the P-51 STGB. Have to say I'm impressed with it so far.. Yes the snap fit is a bit of a gimmick and you'd still need a dab of glue in places even if you went the snap fit route. Treat it like a normal kit and the fit/detail is very nice. My only negative is the high retail price compared to the recent P-51 competition from Airfix & Eduard.. Although the Meng kit can be found cheaper if you shop around I'd recommend it for sure.
  10. Ok...well thats going on the 2020 must buy list....thank you ICM
  11. Gonna throw this one in too Modelsvit's new P-51H kit. Light years ahead of the old H kits but still basically a short run style kit so not expecting Tamiya/Eduard fit. To be honest i'm not really feeling any of the 4 schemes in the box..so if it get done it'll be in markings for Arizona ANG..the Copperheads... I think piecing together the markings will be the easy part on this one...lol Look for updates soon.
  12. Picked this kit up quite cheap off Ebay Thinking of doing a post war USAF or ANG Mustang,but will need to make afew changes to the kit depending on which of the 3 i've shortlisted. #1 Nellis AFB using a corrected IPMS decal sheet #2 Air National Guard units activated for duty to cover Keflavik,Iceland from the Soviets during the Korean war..with red Arctic wings & tail #3 37th Fighter-Interceptor Squadron at Burlington Airport, Vermont. All images copyright of USAF/Wikipeadia Will make a start at the weekend hopefully
  13. Right, managed to miss the postie yesterday so hit up the local parcel depot on the way in to work this morning...guess i have no excuses now. Now do I start with the easy straight forward Meng P-51D..or shall i dive in on the P-51H..
  14. So just bought the Modelvisit 1/48 P-51H and Meng's...cough glue free 1/48 P-51D after finding one of the latter stupidly cheap on Ebay. Coincidence that theres a STGB running i think not.. Will start build threads next week once they arrive
  15. I've got a old Astra Decals sheet in 1/32 if its of any use
  16. Well this will make a lot of folks very happy. Just worried what the RRP will be..
  17. Kill Info from Sword of David: The Israeli Air Force at War book.
  18. Excellent Job!, Built this jet twice over the years.. First time using the Fujimi thick & nasty decals on a 1/48 Hasegawa kit as the trash can was the best place for the Fujimi plastic. Second time in 1/32 using Tamiya kit with a mix of handmade masks for the stripes and a Astra decal sheet for everything else. Love the fact you've not only breathed new life into a old kit.but you made you own decals
  19. Awesome build....still not convinced the rake of the under carriage lags is correct if you build it OOB as Eduard intended. Guess I'll find out when i start mine
