  1. Possibly not the definitive mold: one of the openings for the Sparrow fin is missing
  2. Ah ok sorry got confused with the Tempest II...
  3. Clostermann’s Grand Charles is a Tempest V, no?
  4. Yes, frustrating maybe, but let’s try and make the most out of those new fantastic models coming out... We are spoiled really
  5. My plan is to get the AMK kit and build it with the wings in oversweep position, and try to use the other set of wings with everything down as un ‘upgrade kit’ to alter the configuration of the Tamiya model ... Hopefully the wings will be interchangeable without too much drama
  6. Belgian Air Force all the way for me.... Fighter School Koksijde both in High Speed Silver and in camo

    Tornado Gr1

    Remember the Gr.4 boxing is not just the IDS box with some extras... The pylons for example are different from one box to the other. Also the insert for the upper trailing edge of the fin (different on an Italian IDS) is not included in the Gr.4 box. But I agree it’s a shame the Gr.4 is discontinued. I would also like to see the IDS reissued with some more standard schemes (both German and Italian). No doubt they will appear over time... G
  8. I’m not into 1/72 so not following this release very closely, but I do like the F-1... Interesting to see the different size of the “5-OA” compared to the other codes. First time I see this. The Berna sheets certainly didn’t cover for that. Has anyone got any ideas?
  9. One small thing I noticed is the shape of the tip of the ailerons. I think they should be similarly shaped to the elevators and rudder, with that unique ‘curve’ at the trailing edge tip... A 10 second job with a sanding stick and I’m in no way saying Airfix should retool the parts, but I rather make people aware and avoid seeing Hunter after Hunter built with this ‘mistake’ Looking forward to hold the plastic in my hands!!!

    Future Decal Release from Fantasy Printshop

    I don’t think the Navy Hunters sheet was ever released in 1/48....
  11. I would sell a kidney for one of those
  12. And hopefully some love for the early F1 through F5.... small bore engines and straight leading edges. Maybe a manufacturer like AlleyCat would consider?
  13. Yes indeed the parabrake tail was included in the test shots. But maybe Airfix won’t include them in this offering? Time will tell. If they end up doing an FGA.9, I suspect and extra sprue with rockets, large tanks and cutout flaps will be included Well I wasn’t a big fan of this conversion set. I much preferred the Aeroclub. The fuselage cut was forward of the wing which made it much more forgiving if your cut was slightly off... The Heritage had you cut the fuselage mid-wing which left absolutely no room for error, and I found it a pain to get the whole thing together. I never finished mine. If AlleyCat takes the ‘aeroclub approach’ and includes a resin canopy, I’m in for at least 6 or 7 sets

    1/48 Mirage V, whats out there?

    I think the upgrade had been completed by 1985, but I don’t have my reference books handy so hopefully someone else can confirm. There’s this for example from 1979... early jet with the LAG underside
