  1. Good to see this resurrected - I hope you get it finished!

    Excellent find which answers quite a few questions about the TBM.
  3. Hey Special Hobby Guys - Here is Jan Polc and Laurent XXX 's projection of sales for a couple of your 1/48 potential releases 1/48 Vickers Vildebeeste - 20 -200 sales 1/48 Bristol Beaufort - 2,000 to 4,000 sales So which one are you going to do? I guess maybe there is more information around on the Vildebeeste and more users and interesting color schemes so maybe you do that one?
  4. Hey Special Hobby Guys - Here is my projection of sales for a couple of your 1/48 potential releases 1/48 Vickers Vildebeeste - 100-1000 sales 1/48 Bristol Beaufort - 10,000 to 20,000 sales So why are you faffing around and not doing it?
  5. I know it has been asked before several times but is there any information on Tac-R Hurricanes about. This discussion (like most of the others) soon wanders off into PR Hurricanes, which seem to be different. In this discussion the Morley Mowers book looks interesting. Can anyone say if it mentions the difference betwwen an ordinary Hurricane I and a Tac-R version Hurricane I? Theres a link in Post 10 but it is defunct. I suppose it may be that there are no photos or decsriptions of Tac-R Hurricane I's beyond "They may have has a vertical camera fitted behind the cockpit and they may have had an oblique camera looking thru a little window in the fuselage aft of and below the cockpit". Any advances?
  6. Yes, or some weirdo without much English!
  7. Should this not be in the Work in Progress section. There is nothing new here. And, yes, see above, you will have to fix your own mistake!
  8. Have to agree with you that attaching the front fuselage parts to the rear fuselage parts then joining the two halves is easier. tried both methods and this works better than the Airfix instructions. Nice model and good research to go with it!
  9. Nice model with good back-story. Good job to make it more than "acceptable"! Okay, that's the one for the "Chief Fish" but is it possible to get more informations on the NKVD one?
  10. No, it looks like a really well done 1/72 scale model. It's quite exceptional! Excellent job.
  11. There is a post here http://www.aussiemodeller.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=14640 saying the Thorne-Atlas one should be blue and green. However the other schemes look nice.
  12. Maybe not........... http://www.b29-superfortress.com/b29-superfortress-variants.htm B-29 Superfortress "Silverplates" During World War II, the 509th Composite Group included 15 B-29s with special "Silverplate" modifications, and 1,800 men. The Silverplate B-29s had modifications necessary to deliver atomic weapons, which included an extensively modified bomb bay with pneumatic doors, special propellors, modified engines and the deletion of protective armor and gun turrets. and http://www.b29-superfortress.com/b29-superfortress-4427297-bockscar.htm The Silverplate Superfortresses Late in 1944, Army Air Forces leaders selected the Glenn L. Martin Company in Omaha to produce a squadron of B-29s codenamed "Silverplate". Martin modified these Superfortresses by removing all gun turrets except for the tail position, removing armor plate, and installing Curtiss electric propellers. The bomb bay doors and the fuselage section between the bomb bays were removed to create a single 33-foot bomb bay which could accommodate either the "Fat Man" or "Little Boy" versions of the atomic bomb.
  13. At least I have got it to work now!
  14. I signed in on a computer that someone else was already signed in to Britmodeller on. Unfortunately it killed my password. I think I have got it back - hey, I am here! Is this an unusual or a common problem?
