  1. A brilliant build of a lovely little aeroplane! I too am pleased to see Avis tackling these charming subjects. Now if only Avis would 'scale up' this little Short flying boat to say, a Short Calcutta... Best Regards, Jason
  2. Interesting link, J-W! I had never heard of the pilot John Robinson before. I suppose I need to start reading a bit more about aviation outside of the Great Patriotic War. Regards, Jason
  3. I say go for it (both the Salmson variant and the floatplane), J-W! Regarding the Abyssinian-Italian War, I'm almost surprised the Abyssinians had any aircraft, but by 1935/1936 I suppose just about every self-respecting country had at least a few aeroplanes. Regards, Jason
  4. Very nice - I've always liked the Seasprite! Regards, Jason
  5. I will be buying a couple of these - one for the Spanish Civil War, and one for the Gran Chaco War. Now about a Br.19... Regards, Jason
  6. Now that's an interesting kit! It should be rather substantial (in size AND cost) in 1/32nd scale. Now how about a 1/32nd scale Tu-16 Badger? Regards, Jason
  7. Brilliant work on that Javelin! And welcome to the site! Best Regards, Jason
  8. Beautiful job on an interesting and very advanced little aeroplane! Best Regards, Jason
  9. Well, I suppose that makes sense. I don't agree with their reasoning, but it makes some sense. Thank you for answer! Best Regards, Jason
  10. Brilliant work, Claudio! Mine won't come out as well, but even close to your standard would be nice. I plan on doing mine without the bracing wires; as initially flown it did not have them as it was meant to be fully cantilever. That also means no race number, but I can live without that. Best Regards, Jason
  11. Very sharp-looking Banjo you got there! Regards, Jason
  12. I can well imagine. I do like things to be in scale, but I don't consider myself a rivet-counter. Regards, Jason
  13. I don't understand modellers' cavalier attitudes between mixing 1/32nd and 1/35th scale vehicles, when so many throw a conniption fit because a model is 5 scale mm too long. To continue that further, why bother if a kit is 1/76th, or 1/78th, or 1/75th, or 1/72nd if you have some aircraft models - I mean it's all pretty much the same, isn't it? I suppose my main point is that I thought that 1/32nd scale was the normal scale for aircraft, not 1/35th scale. How are helicopters different? Am I somehow more likely to have my helicopter or autogyro with a 1/35th scale tank or artillery piece? Regards, Jason
  14. I have that Kora Turret Demon kit - thank you for pointing this out! It doesn't look too hard to fix. I may kit bash this kit with one of my Aeroclub Hart/Audaxes, and just use the fuselage as a sort of conversion piece (and whatever other bits and bobs I fancy using from the Kora kit). One thing I love about the old Aeroclub Hart series is the one piece lower wing - makes it much easier to get the dihedral and wing placement correct. Regards, Jason
  15. Since when was it decided that rotor-wing aircraft should be done in 1/35th scale? I thought that off-scale was for tanks, and 1/32nd scale was for aircraft. Helicopters and auto-gyros are still considered aircraft, aren't they? Or am I missing something? Regards, Jason
