  1. Oooh I like that! Never heard of this plane but it's really interesting. I just saw a picture on wikipedia where the nose kinda reminded me of that weird Gloster Meteor with the prone pilot.
  2. Indeed. The plans can be wrong, the kit can be wrong, or both.
  3. I had no idea this ever existed but this is a thing of absolute beauty! Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I will have to acquire this
  4. I'm sorry, but you misunderstand. I meant the actual facemask on the actual plane. On the left side it hangs over the C for Cargolux, but on the right side it's tucked behind the top right bit of the X. Any tension on that mask would fling it off. It should go all over and then hang behind the two left parts of the X
  5. I am so annoyed that that mask is not gonna stay in place, the way it's fixed to the X on the right side of the airplane. Not at all Revell's fault, but it still bugs me!
  6. This looks pretty damn good. Is there a specific name for this type of aircraft? And by "this" I mean the Pucara, the Cessna Strikemaster, OV-10 Bronco, OV-1 Mohawk. Small planes that seem to carry a fairly big stick to pummel the enemy with. They really appeal to me for some reason.
  7. The base looks *really* good, but I don't think satellites get dirty. They're kept clean during production, stay inside a fairing or nose cone during launch and then up in space where there's little to no chance of weather to weather the thing.
  8. I'm in a Fiat 500 club and the versions from '57 to '64 were all suicide doors. In our club the story is that they are called that because if a door opens when driving (which did happen somewhat frequently), the person next to it would instinctively reach for it. Since seat belts weren't a thing back then, anyone grabbing that door would be pulled out, killing (or at least severely hurting) themselves. I have a feeling this is just one explanation among a myriad of others. Sounds plausible though.
  9. Thank you for the review. There is no such thing as too many Corsairs!
  10. Is it possible that the first picture is the wrong one? The box art clearly says it's an interior kit and there are 3 (instead of 4) decal options.
