  1. Great model, John! And thanks for the explanation on the conversion. Carlos
  2. Believe it or not, there are three kits of the Crusader in 1/72! Karaka aside, Dekno (resin) and C. A. Atkins (metal) also produced a kit. I have the later, a beautiful but very chalenging kit. I'm learning a lot from this thread. Carlos
  3. In my previous message you have links for 3-views. The website of the Museum of Berkshire Aviation is very good, having drawings of most Miles designs. These are the same published in "The Book of Miles Aircraft". But I also would like to have better, more detailed ones! Carlos
  4. Hi Matt, I would use the Magister as a base for a Whitney Straight. In fact, I have a lot of Frog/Easter Express kits to make this and other Miles conversions... Of course you may use the better (but also more expensive) RS kit. If you compare the 3-view from both aircraft you will see that the wings are about the same. And it's much easier to modify plastic than resin, as it would be the case of the Plastic Passion kit. http://museumofberkshireaviation.co.uk/html/gallery/m14.htm http://museumofberkshireaviation.co.uk/html/gallery/m11.htm Carlos
  5. Hi Pat, Thanks for your interest. Unfortunately it is in the same condition... or worst, as it is still packed due to a recent move. I am still to make a proper vacuformer, as I have lots of parts to reproduce that would go better in female molds. Before that I am dealing with a pair of Vega Gulls, a civilian B-24, A Junkers 90, a Short Solent conversion from a Sunderland and a lot more... Solent wip to follow soon. Carlos

    If someone still needs the Aviation News article and plans please send me a message, as I have a good scan on my disk. Carlos
  7. Björn, I don't know about French Air Force registrations, but both "the Green one" (F-ANPY) and F-ANPZ were bought by the French government and used extensively. Ogilvy writes that both Comets went to Istres in 1938, where they were destroyed in a hangar fire in 1940. May be they wore military registrations by then? Carlos
  8. I was going to suggest you to buy Len Whalley very detailed drawings but his website - aeroplans.co.uk - isn't online. May be another member can share his contact. Anyway, basic drawings were published in the November 2007 issue of Model Aircraft Monthly. There are a few for sale in Ebay at the moment. Carlos
  9. You may have a look here: http://www.rquirk.com/smindx.html (and it seems that the same guy sells a more complete index: https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/ref/reeve/book_reeve_samindex.shtml) And here: http://www.aeroflight.co.uk/mags/contents/scale-aircraft-modelling-contents-listing-1980s.htm http://www.aeroflight.co.uk/mags/contents/scale-aircraft-modelling-contents-listing-1990s.htm http://www.aeroflight.co.uk/mags/contents/scale-aircraft-modelling-contents-listing-2000s.htm Carlos, also a magazine collector...
  10. Congratulations for a beautiful model! Having both the WB and several Dujin kits I thank you for an "out of the tin" recipe. Carlos
  11. I have the drawings but only will be able to access them next week. Send me a message to remember, if you still need them.
  12. I encourage you to buy one from Mini World instead. They are fantastic! https://modelsua.com/Lewis-Mk-II-twin-MG-on-the-scarf-ring.html
  13. A possible update to your method: after making the circle with the compass, use a small drill bit to pierce the card (make sure it is vertical); Then score another circle in the other side of the plastic. This way you can cut circles on thicker plastic card. Carlos
