  1. One thing I always found interesting with the Westland Lysander is the way wings taper towards fuselage (they narrow instead of usual widening) img source: Wikiwand Is there any reason for this design decision apart better visibility - e.g. some aerodynamic or structural advantage? Thanks
  2. Never seen this one before, thanks for sharing!
  3. A rather interesting decal sheet has been released: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/dp-casper-72033-corsair-f4u-4-at-wwii--1328990
  4. Even if mask are not included in the box - I'm sure they will follow shortly from Eduard or some smaller producer like DEAD design. This one has been on my 'need-a-decent-kit-of-it' waiting list for years, so I'm in the 'Definitely' crowd
  5. IMHO, it is easier to address a seam not running in the place of a panel line, simply because it is easier to later re-scribe the panel in plastic than in putty. Having the seam run across existing panels (instead in their direction and position) reduces the putty areas that go under the blade (Zvezda did a similar thing on their Yak-3 wing-to-fuselage joint).
  6. Some nice RAF/RCAF style fonts available for download below: http://aircraft-in-focus.com/ath_aircraft_fonts/?fbclid=IwAR3t9zZ8uOk9rQkGrRNqddQvyTukoqOwz8opdU0t-r1IyHdwnBkh8y3eGFs Regards, Aleksandar
  7. Beautiful rendition of one of my favorite aircraft. Well done!
  8. Encore and Zlinek Tu-2s are re-pops of the ICM, the only difference being that Zlinek also includes a small photo-etched fret. I have the Zlinek Boxing, and the plastic is the same shade of dark olive green. To answer the original question, ICM/Zlinek/Encore undoubtedly is currently the most detailed one (especially the exterior panel and rivet surface finish - closest to true scale representation You will get). But, not many are seen actually built, given they are a bit on the short-run side. If You dislike a challenging-fitting kit, but don't mind non-existe
  9. Another one of those early models with flush gun ports, where You can't really tell if that's tape over them or something else...
  10. Thanks, not yet complete. I might add the Kaufmann starter and the aerials later.
  11. I did, here's the link to the chart. Link to the discussion topic. Green fields represent 'existing' Black ones are 'Definitely impossible' Regards, Aleksandar
  12. My standard process is following: Paint the tire in tire black or any other very dark grey. Put a toothpick in the axle hole, then spin it slowly and spray a slightly lighter gray perpendicular to the thread surface (if You keep the airbrush perfectly perpendicular, this leaves the portion next to the wheel-hub in a darker grey with a soft edge), Protect it with lacquer Add washes, pigments and/or other effects. Regards, Aleksandar
  13. No, I sold mine un-started. The model pics above are from the internet, taken just for illustration purposes.
