  1. First off I'll start by wishing everybody a merry xmas. Now for the main part. Changing scale due to running out of room for the 1/32 and 1/24 scale a/c so this year doing more 1/48 scale. For xmas the wife bought me 4 Airfix kits, 1/72 Victor B.2, 1/48 Hunter F.6, Meteor F.8 and Blenheim Mk.1F. The last time I built an Airfix kit god was a still a lad. Must say I'm really impressed with the kits and how Airfix has come on in leaps and bounds. Now waiting for the Vulcan. Chris
  2. Nice looking pair of Mossies. Especially like the B.Mk.XX as a really good friend of mine, who passed about 6 years ago, served on 627sq at Woodhall Spa. After VE Day, he was down to go to the Far East with Tiger Force. When that was cancelled he went on Avro Yorks with Transport Command.
  3. On an early war Spitfire with silver u/s, was this just lacquered or was it sprayed? TIA
  4. Have a couple of parts that I need copies doing for a future build. Is their anybody out there who can help me out and do them for me. Obviously I'll pay what ever it costs. TIA

    Looking for a Ju88C-6 night fighter in 1/48 scale. So far have seen the ICM and Dragon kits. Have never built any of these brands so my question is simply which is the best one? TIA
  6. The red and white striped Fw190 was operated by JV44 (Jagdverband 44), this unit was commanded by Adolf Galland. The aircraft were painted with striped under surfaces so as to identify them against friendly fire from the flak crews as they were used as top cover for the Me262 jets when taking off and landing. The unit was nicknamed the papagei staffel (parrot squadron).
  7. Thanks for the info, that is the handle in question. If it was for the brake chute it wouldn’t have been a problem as I intend to do a F.6A using the parts supplied in the kit.
  8. Just got the new Airfix 1/48 Hawker Hunter and have a query regarding part C37 in the cockpit. This looks as though it's the parachute brake release handle which the standard F.6 would not have been fitted with. Is this correct? TIA
  9. Earlier on in this posting it was stated that the F-4J(UK) did not have slatted wings. Take a look at the photo on the site that I have linked of the Tiger Meet a/c and it clearly shows deployed slats. https://falkeeinsgreatplanes.blogspot.com/2014/04/british-phantoms-f-4-phantom-ii-in-raf.html?m=1
  10. I'm just starting the F-4J marines boxing. This will be done as a 74sq F-4J(UK) a/c. Possibly the only things that needs adding are the underwing strengthening strap and rear seaters periscope. The Marines offering gives you the option of posable L/E slats and tail planes, although some surgery is required for these. The first boxing of the J did not give these options.
  11. Quick question. Are the Roden 1/144 VC 10 tanker kits any good? TIA
  12. That’s interesting as it shows the tiger stripes on the starboard side and the tigers head on the nose. According to one book on 74 sq, the nose art came off on the flight home as it was quickly applied on the base in Italy with non standard paint.
  13. Thanks for that. Glad to know I’m not going daft and I was correct.
