  1. Thanks, Paul! But being the impatient -insert description- that I am, I have already created a login and downloaded the instructions... But thank you very much for the offer!! Cheers, Erik.
  2. Hi Dennis, I already checked Scalemates - no joy. But thank you very much for the Galaxykits link. Exactly what I needed! Cheers, Erik.
  3. Hi guys, Can someone please help me with a scan of the decal placement instructions for ProModeler's F-86D Dog Sabre? I have mislaid my own instructions... What I really REALLY need is the placement of the stenciling. The kit-decals feature quite extensive stenciling, sadly the numbering on the Revell re-pops is totally different. Thanks in advance! Cheers, Erik B.
  4. I'm looking for photos of the cockpit of the F-51H in ANG service. Were these repainted in black as the F-51D cockpits were? Secondly, are there any photos floating around on the internet that show the Texas ANG option of the Modelsvit 1/48 kit? Cheers, Erik.
  5. Tim, to show you how spot on you are with your cockpit, here some pics from the NASM P-38J-10-LO. Reading the aircraft's history is very interesting BTW, it was a prototype for a two seat variant. When it was returned to being a single-seater, it was upgraded to P-38J-25-LO level. I don't know what that precisely entails, but hey, for the record! Cheers, Erik.
  6. I didn't find too much on P-38 wheel wells, certainly not period photos where the colours are really clear. photos: ww2aircraft.net This is a museum bird: And the nose gear well with cover. No idea if that would be on a P-38G too: What I did conclude from looking at photos was that the early P-38's up until the F had aluminium (painted) u/c-legs but that from somewhere during production of the P-38G they seem to be finished in grey. P-38G-1-LO Lightning, serial 42-12723, alu nosewheel leg. Photos from Wikimedia
  7. It seems that according to technical orders the interior was finished in a colour that we as modellers would characterize as "interior green"... Nice progress! My hands are itching to start mine, too!!! https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/hyperscale/early-f-g-p-38-color-questions-t510184.html P-38F-1-LO Glacier Girl The P-38J-10-LO in NASM's Udvar-Hazy facility. Although a later version, this P-38J is unrestored and may provide a good insight in the original finish of OD/NG
  8. Hi Yufei, Thank you very much for this hugely informative WIP! A couple of questions, if I may. 1. The cockpit rear bulkhead. Gabor wrote in his WIP that during the design-stage, little information was available on the rear bulkhead of the cockpit. The detail incorporated on the rear bulkhead of the kit look like details that also can be found on the rear bulkhead of the Su-27, only mirrored. Do you know if there is more info avalable now regarding wiring etc.? 2. I noticed that you’ve painted the rear main gear well “ceilings” aluminium. Is that also o
  9. Thanks everyone for the very helpful replies! Cheers, mates!
  10. Thank you Graham! I suspected as much but indeed liked to have it corroborated! I'm searching the things together to build a Swordfish Mk.II of 860 (Dutch) Sqn. which operated from the MAC-Carriers. These aircraft wre stored almost exclusively on the flightdeck... Cheers, Erik.
  11. It seems that I have been thick enough to post this in the AFV-section.... Sorry about that! I have reported my topic to the moderators, asking them to move it to the aircraft section. Sorry for the inconvenience! Cheers, Erik.
  12. Hi all, Did the TAGs (Telegraphist / Air Gunner) take their Vickers K MG's to and from the aircraft before and after missions or did the machine gun stay on the aircraft between missions? Thanks in advance! Erik.
  13. Hello all, I'm still trying to find out how the Merkava "works". What is or are the exhaust(s)? I see an opening on the left side with soot around it: But an extended exhaust-like opening can also be found on the right side: I presumed that the opening with gills at the right side was from the engine intake but the following picture makes me doubt.... Although this is probably a Mk. 2?: Thanks in advance for your insights! Cheers, Erik.
  14. Thanks for the answers, guys! Much appreciated! Cheers, Erik.
