  1. Briefly resurrecting this thread... Can the photoetched fishplates of Brengun's detail set BRL 72048, for the Typhoon Mk.Ib, be used on this kit? Pete57
  2. I don't know...in terms of survivability, I believe the AMX is nowhere close to the Rook
  3. Does anyone know what color the lower part of the cockpit of the ItAF AMX happens to be? In color pictures, it appears to be a blue-gray, slightly darker than the exterior color. The exterior color, at least to my untrained eye, seems to have been extended to the upper part of the cockpit interior. From what I could glean, the exterior color should be FS 36280 "GRIGIO CIELO MEDIO" per Table 1 (list of colors) of Publication AER(EP).M-P-100. There are three more grays listed in Table 1, specifically, Dark Gray "GRIGIO SCURO" FS36081, Dark, Sky Gray "GRIGIO CIELO SCURO" FS36152, and Light Sky Gray "GRIGIO CIELO CHIARO" FS36314. FS36314 should be the most likely candidate, given its closeness (FS595-wise) to FS36280, but I'm gonna leave the final word to the experts... TIA Pete57
  4. What really annoys me is that, despite the relatively high price, slats and flaps are not separate parts and on the real aircraft, when parked (no hydraulic pressure), they are down!😠 Reckon Italeri has decided to give business to the aftermarket manufacturers...😏
  5. Thank you, sir! Indeed the roadblock with a Centurion tank and the houses in the background suggest the Korean War
  6. Hi sandsmodels, do you have a link to the video?
  7. Hi John, I agree with you. I wanted to build the Academy 1/72 kit as a KW vehicle. Guess I'll have to try to fit the Heller's cab into the Academy's frame. Thanks anyway.
  8. One can be seen being towed by a closed-cab CCKW-352 at minute 2:50 of this youtube video. Unfortunately, it's too blurred to read the registration and bumper codes...
  9. Hi, I'm looking for pictures of closed-cab CCKW 353's during the Korean War. Can someone help? T.i.a. Pete57
  10. Great news and how about a canopy without the rear-view-mirror blister for Dragon's Meteor F.Mk. I? Regards Pete57
  11. Graham, Would it be one of the many lacquer 7102's?
  12. Thanks SafetyDad, useful info indeed. Pete57
  13. Hi SafetyDad, Could it be one of the RLM 79 Variants? And in your opinion, would this apply just to the NASM airframe, or could it be an Arado's approved practice, perhaps applied to the production from a given Werknummer on? Thanks for your input. Regards. Pete57
  14. The caption to a picture on page 69 of ARADO 234 BLITZ, by J.R.Smith and E.J.Creek, Monogram Monarch - 1, states " When NASM staff were working on the interior of the undercarriage stowage bay they found this unusual buff color ". I thought RLM 02 or un-painted were the only options, but the evidence shows otherwise. Can any Luftwaffe color expert cast some light? T.i.a.
  15. Great news and in the one, true scale
  16. Hi, I'm buying Eduard's FW190A-8 and planning to build it as W.Nr.734018, E8+BB of 1./NSGr. 9 in Villafranca, Italy, 1945. Is there a white, W.Nr. decal sheet of suitable size? T.i.a.
  17. Not sure if they've already been listed https://www.etsy.com/listing/1210879044/172-personnel-raf-01-wwii?click_key=f282962ebe460d7a72559c6987f6a9db7e1488ea%3A1210879044&click_sum=2c013abb&ref=shop_home_recs_6&crt=1 https://www.etsy.com/listing/1210957170/172-personnel-raf-02-wwii?click_key=5d45f35693da2e0dcb60ea11a51d9a550b33f0b2%3A1210957170&click_sum=f317726d&ref=shop_home_recs_3&crt=1 https://www.etsy.com/listing/1201531527/172-raf-pilots-01-wwii?click_key=71aed5cdb330f5e27db1283ea22c3505974d31d5%3A1201531527&click_sum=2619d865&ref=shop_home_recs_1
  18. Does anyone have details on the camera installation of the Israeli-modified Gloster Meteor T7's, used during Operation Kadesh? So far, all I have is the picture on page 49 of "Gloster Meteor" by IsraDecal Publications. Thanks in advance Pete57
  19. https://www.lfmodels.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_5_73&products_id=3798 I'd be tempted...but Kora sells it on line at a whopping €66.00!

  21. I'd like to build "White 52" of the Israeli AF, the aircraft that started Operation Kadesh/Musketeer, by shooting down an Egyptian AF Il-14. Unfortunately the DP Casper "Musketeer & Kadesh, October 1956" sheet has only "White 50" and the Isra Decals sheet is next to impossible to find...
  22. Are the parts for the NF Mk 13 included in the NF Mk 11 kit? I don't have the kit yet, but looking at the instruction sheet on CMK's e-shop, the parts 8 and 10 could be the cockpit cooling intakes and the parts 2 and 5 could be the wider air intakes, and given that they are all four crossed out...
