  1. Beautiful work, she looks gorgeous. Bravo, and thanks for sharing her with us!
  2. I've seen one, and it was recently bought by Jerry Yagen and has been relocated to the same shop that restored his Mosquito. I was planning on building a 1/48 version once it's complete, now I know there'll be a kit!
  3. New Zealand has never had a Lysander and I doubt Australia has either. Canada, on the other hand, had a few surplus examples converted to agricultural aircraft for spraying and the like. I think I've seen a Brian Baker build of one in 1/72 with spray gear. I don't believe any were used as bushplanes but am happy to be proven wrong.
  4. Time for me to roll out my visual wishlist again 3C60085A-0A4E-421D-BB2E-E2744D8994C1_zpsgsfegupu by Zac Yates, on Flickr 8DA7955D-0942-4CF1-A4F8-B1BEBAEA1005_zpsqerjez8a by Zac Yates, on Flickr 26F027A0-C737-48FF-AFA2-D9F356529937_zpsnbao9nwq by Zac Yates, on Flickr 40C03A2E-6985-464B-BCA5-59A90F3EBE2C_zpswwm2yyal by Zac Yates, on Flickr 49C7E44A-8D1A-4DD9-9844-E744E3B8E206_zps29o9jzdv by Zac Yates, on Flickr 5A38A2BD-15AA-4DB0-AF36-8817B77E5D10_zps0ezytnbc by Zac Yates, on Flickr 1215AB6B-A6C5-4B7A-A9A2-37FA77E2C3F4_zps4mjkv8ek by Zac Yates, on Flickr DSC_0402 by Zac Yates, on Flickr DSC_0480 by Zac Yates, on Flickr
  5. Thank you both for your thoughts and advice, as I mentioned I know precious little about B-17 variants so this is all very welcome and helpful. My idea is to build the movie star version,
  6. I was about to start a new thread, but my forum search found this one with my question yet to be answered... I'd like to build the main movie Belle, N3703G, in 1/72 - would it be best to start with a G and backdate (like the real machine) or an F, and which kit would be the most accurate for this airframe as depicted in the film?
  7. Beautiful. Absolutely brilliant news. I bought and resold an Azur 1/72 kit as my skills weren't up to the task back then, this could make for a fantastic kit.
  8. Speaking of helis long in the catalogue, my birthday is 8/8 and the long-advertised 1/48 JetRanger reissue would be the perfect gift!
  9. Ever since they announced the kit I've been hoarding photos of Myanmar machines, this is great news!
  10. Wake me when there's an Australasian boxing with exclusively RAAF and RNZAF options It's looking like a fine kit and I look forward to seeing some builds.
  11. I was excited for this kit when it first popped up in The Rumourmonger, and builds like this don't help my ever-weakening resistance to buying a copy. Your Islander is eyecatching and the scheme is crisp and very nicely done!
