  1. I have a question: what happened to K5083? The most I can find, from ThisDayInAviation, is: On another forum someone said it was acquired for use in the film Test Pilot but then returned to Hawker as it was too different to production examples. We know for certain the fate of K5054, it’s sad that the same can’t be said of the first Hurricane.
  2. Pretty! Dare-I-hope-for-a-V2?
  3. I have long admired your models across the internet, thank you for sharing this lovely Dragonfly!
  4. That is fantastic! Never heard of the film - like most, I guess? - and what a refreshing change from the normal Optica fare. Bravo!
  5. I think this is the first time I've seen this kit built! Lovely work. It makes me sad that there are only two 269/300 kits, and one of them is an egg. Really looking forward to the AMP/MikroMir kits!
  6. I love that there's a conversion set for this aircraft! This has been an entertaining thread to follow and I'm keen to see the end result.
  7. This looks like an excellent kit. What are the chances of aftermarket New Zealand Police uniform and accessories?
  8. The box art immediately made me think it would be the newer A-4B/Q kit. I just can't fathom why they'd use the A4D kit, nor why anyone would suggest it when the new kit exists! Still struggling to come to terms with the Classic/Legacy Hornet masquerading as the upcoming film's E model, but ah well. I was hoping the co-operation with Academy for armour kits would mean we'd get Academy's Super Hornet and Tomcat for this series.
  9. Beautiful work Ian, that’s brought a much-needed smile to my face. Bravo! I’m so glad to see one of these completed. One day I’ll be in a position to get the kit. I didn’t expect to see a cover on the hopper opening. Did you find a photo of one?
  10. It would've been nice to get some accurate N main blades - that really disappointed me when I found out. Would it be possible to do them in resin, with some sort of spar to avoid excess droopage over time?
  11. The film is Zero Dark Thirty. I quite enjoyed it, and the Stealth Hawks were very believable. Almost identical except for the fact it did not have a shrouded/fenestron tail rotor and it featured a low-mounted horizontal stabiliser instead of a T-tail!
  12. @Creepy Pete ooooh that looks good!
  13. I'm not a fan of the font used for the RNZAF example's serial, it doesn't look right....
