  1. I think the best 1/72 F-4J is the later Hasegawa kit. I stand to be corrected but I think you will need aftermarket decals for VF-142.

    Hello Henri-Philippe and welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy your time here.
  3. Yes, the F-35B is the one that will be used on the new carriers. However I suspect that the Academy kit will come with USMC decals initially so you may need to source aftermarket UK decals. Oh how I long for Hasegawa to make an F-35C in 1/72.

    No, the modeller in question never got around to writing an article on how it was done.
  5. According to the IPMS Stockholm charts, for 361 Light Stone there is a choice of Tamiya XF-60 or Xtracolor X29. Dark Earth and Black are easily sourced.

    Of course, you could always start with an Airfix 1/72 Nimrod, and after some cutting and filling and filling end up with this: (Not my model but made by a member of Thames Valley Scale Model Club)
  7. Ideal loading for an Aussie Hornet is a portable barbi under the fuselage with an eskie under each wing
  8. As I recall with this type of helicopter, the devil is in the rear end. There are changes to the fenestron rotor diameter, the number of blades and the size of the hole in the fenestron. Hopefully somebody who knows more than I will be along shortly.
  9. From background reading, the RAF was very strict on flaps up where Hunters were concerned. Usual fine was a round of drinks in the mess, which could be expensive.
  10. Thanks for the information but according to their website, the only 1/72 scale conversion they do is for the SC9 (which is based on the PR.9). All the others are in 1/48.
  11. Instead of being plain, they would look nicer in a Laura Ashley floral fabric as recommended by Lawrence Llewellyn-Bowen
  12. It is the Frog B(I)8 kit. I was thinking of a T.4 as I can modify the engines and make a solid nose plus whatever else is needed. I'm being flexible depending on which canopy I can get. Thanks but I'd prefer a Canberra in roundels, but if push comes to shove, it's there.
  13. Does anybody make aftermarket canopies for 1/72 Canberras? I ask as I bought a kit from under the table at a model show earlier this year and it has no clear parts. I thought if I could get a bubble canopy I could make a T.4 or if I could get a fighter canopy I could make a B(I)8. Otherwise it goes back in the stash.
