  1. 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

    D.H.88 Comet, French A.F.

    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

    Handley Page HP 42 information sought

    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

    Aircraft Modelling magazines

    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...

    Congratulations for a beautiful model! Having both the WB and several Dujin kits I thank you for an "out of the tin" recipe. Carlos

    Supermarine Southampton

    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
  10. 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
  11. You may use calibrated wax, like in this video:

    Storage of super glue and super glue gel

    Hi Colin, The big problem is moisture; So I store my superglue in a can of Nesquick with silica gel. No more problems!
  13. Hi all, I am building the nice Amodel kit of the Shavrov Sh-2 and I intend to make a civilian aircraft. However I would like to avoid the dull green and blue decal options, and found two photos in blue and orange Polyarnaya aviatsiya livery. Is there more info of these flying boats in this atractive scheme? As you may see, the demarcation between the colous is different on these photos, and probably some others exist. My sources are this monograph (from where the photos were taken) and Lennart Andersson's Red Stars 6 - Aeroflot origins. Thanks in advance for any help. Carlos
  14. Revell issued both the Matchbox and the Frog kits. In my opinion the Frog one is much better but has too big engine nacelles.
  15. To be completely accurate the prototype boxing should include Hamilton Standard and Ratier props (and spinners, and different logo decals). "The Orphan" with the racing number G-16 shows yet different props... Different air intakes would be needed also. And previously, before the cheat line was painted, the fuselage included only a comet in the port side. Not an easy subject, the Comet. Carlos (I restored the photos in the thread pointed above by Roger Holden).
