  1. Well made and in an attractive scheme Trevor
  2. Story I heard at the time was that the Tucano was chosen as a sort of quid pro quo for the help Brazil gave to the U.K. in the South Atlantic and with all the changes, any similarity to the original Tucano was minimal. As for licence building the PC-9, Pilatus obviously changed their mind with Beech for the Texan II. If you want a pre owned Tucano, then look no further..... https://www.trade-a-plane.com/search?model=TUCANO+MK1&s-type=aircraft Trevor
  3. This looks very nice indeed. I’ll tag along if you don’t mind Trevor
  4. They also thought about a naval variant of the indigenous Tejas but after trials I think they abandoned that route. Trevor
  5. Mine was originally a Max Headroom head but I changed it a few years ago to the one above. It’s a lion on top of a column in St Mark’s Square in Venice and on on one wing a gull looking the other way. No reason other than I like the photo I took and is a memory of a nice very hot day I had there. As for the name I liked the programme. I was going to choose Slartibartfast from Hitchhikers but couldn’t find a suitable avatar. Trevor
  6. The Spit looks good. I like the idea of kabuki style masks for camouflage in 1/72. If I read the post correctly, someone has also suggested a pre painted transfer for canopy framing. That might work for the 109, but may be trickier for types with complex curves such as a He111. Looking on with interest Trevor
  7. Ow! Maybe HK will send a replacement half if you ask nicely. Otherwise it’s a ruddy great reinforcing tab on the inside. I find it puzzling that HK went to the bother of having two bespoke starboard side moulds though. Trevor
  8. Isn’t ‘creche’ a posh word for a prang? Is that my coat over there.........? Trevor
  9. Adding to what @Pete in Lincs said about the radiators ‘611 would appear to have the deeper intakes like ‘474. The latter was built for Far East operations and tropical heat hence the larger radiators. Not sure if the MK.VII’s were built with this in mind but given its area of ops with the French, maybe a retrofit? Trevor
  10. Just found this thread and all I can do is admire your thoroughness for a subject you obviously care about. I’ll sit in the corner and applaud from a 2m distance. Trevor
  11. Here you go! https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/324420014557?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=324420014557&targetid=1000478309230&device=m&mktype=pla&googleloc=9046489&poi=&campaignid=10204071534&mkgroupid=107296322532&rlsatarget=pla-1000478309230&abcId=1145987&merchantid=9363284&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI84GzxJCg7gIV5IBQBh3-dwhfEAQYASABEgI_NvD_BwE Trevor
  12. Would this be the first ‘new Airfix’ to be reboxed? If so, it’s nice to think the two brands are hooking up again. Trevor
  13. I wonder where the C-47 originates from? Trevor
