  1. They'll need to put it in rice when it's pulled out of the water.

    RIP Hardy Kruger

  3. The new tool 1/48 Spitfire Mk I that was in last years announcement seems to have disappeared.
  4. When are Italeri going to announce their 2022 catalogue?
  5. There is a lot to carry under the wings but I've found that some of it is suspect or not relevant to the F/A-18E/F/G airframe. When the HB F/A-18E was released, I posted some comments on the stores provided.
  6. Beautiful finish, I was sorry never to fly on that particular aircraft as crew when it was in service.
  7. Nice review Mike, one small point to note is that if you're planning to use aftermarket decals you'd have to check the BuNo , the Meng kit gives you the option of the original ECS heat vents or the later "Bard stack" vents. The later vents were installed on all Lot 27 (BuNo 166598 and later) but were retrofitted to all Hornets by June 2014. Another factor is that the rear cockpit instrument panel is the Advanced Crew Station (ACS) this was fitted to all F/A-18F Super Hornets from Lot 26 onwards (BuNo 166449).
  8. If you have a look at the listings for the P-51 and P-47 you'll see quite a few ltd editions. http://modelingmadness.com/splfeat/kr/has48b.htm
  9. This topic has entered the realms of wish listing.
  10. Folding wingtip conversion by Eduard to be released in March. https://www.eduard.com/out/media/distributors/leaflet/leaflet2022-03en.pdf
  11. According to a note on the information for distributors list it may well be. https://www.eduard.com/out/media/distributors/leaflet/leaflet2022-03en.pdf
  12. I see there are four UK listings for Airfix 1/48 Buccaneers on ebay right now .
  13. Exactly! If you want quality then it costs.
  14. Dark Sea Grey and Dark Camouflage Grey. Decals https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/ML48130?result-token=E8IVD
  15. As a footnote to an excellent inbox review, there are no adaptors for the AGM-88 HARM included with the kit so you'll need to source them from elsewhere if using them.
  16. The only thing we know for certain about the Airfix announcement on Monday is that the website will crash.
