  1. Eastern Express is to release a 1/144th Convair 880 kit - ref. 144144 Source: http://www.pas-decals.ru/forum/novosti/1078-novinki-vostochnyj-ekspress?start=378#36281 Box art V.P.
  2. XFY-1 VTO Pogo 1:48 Lindberg The Pogo was a dead-end offshoot on the Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) family tree, which was designed almost immediately post WWII, perhaps with a little influence from the German Natter? It utilised the recently developed turbo-prop engine driving a contra-rotating pair of paddle-bladed props to remove the torque twist from the brute power of the engine, which would have had catastrophic results in the delicate task of landing the aircraft backwards. The aircraft was a large delta-wing with substantial over-and-under stabilising fins, and four castor-ty
  3. Managed to get my hands on a really really old kit. This kit is over 30 years old. All the parts are still there and the decals still work but has some issues like silvering. As per kits that old, parts are a rough and not very detailed. Had to spend a lot of time sanding join lines and filling in gaps. Printed decals for the cockpit but realized that the cockpits will mostly be closed anyway, oh well.

  7. The next project is this exciting piece of flying history. I have made a start and have painted the props, unfortunately they look like a great big black blob. Assembled the wings and part of the fuselage which looks nothing like the real aircraft. Some images of the real thing for a bit of a reference. Thanks for looking. Stephen
  8. Hello folks, Introducing my first completed build of 2018, the 1/72 Nostalgic Plastic resin rendition of the Convair YF-102 prototype. It was a chore and a challenge, and had languished to become a shelf queen for a long while. In fact, the build thread for it is over in ARC's "Shelf Queens II" Group Build: YF-102 Build Thread Some of my problems with this kit, as well as crying and gnashing of teeth, may be found there. But, here are the pics: Now, if someone wo

  11. She is a poor faded old gal, an original Monogram 1/48th F-102A Delta Dagger with the Case XX wing and I put her together in the early 90's using the kit decals and painted using one of those Humbrol small spray cans which were popular back then, was supposed to be FS36473 'ADC Grey' but I suspect was something quite different. Whatever, the sum of the parts was good and she has been on display in my cabinet until recently however with seven new builds this year I need the space and she has been ousted and is now poised on the edge of the 'shelf of shame'. So what to do? Well, I could bin her
  12. Convair B-36 Peacemaker Warpaint Series No.102 In 1941 the United States had to consider that Britain might lose the war with Germany; most of western Europe had already fallen to the German onslaught and the U.S. viewed the situation that they may have to take up the fight with Germany if Britain fell. The major problem was that America did not have a long-range bomber with sufficient range and load carrying capacity to fly missions to Germany all the way from the USA. Early in 1941 President Roosevelt and his senior military officers looked at the increasing likelihood of fighti

  14. Convair 440 Metropolitan 1:144 Welsh Models with Lima November decals Like many twin engine airlinres of the 1940's, 50's, and 60's the Convair 240 started life as a DC-3 replacement, and went through several developments. This version, the 440, was in answer to the Vickers Viscount and featured more soundproofing and aerodynamically improved cowlings. In service with SAS from 1956 to 1976, they were configured with 52-56 seats and operated with an excellent safety record, not one of SAS's fleet was ever lost. (although in 1965 LN-KLE on a crew training flight hit some trees and landed

  16. Convair F-102A (Case XX) 1:72 Meng Models Roughly a year ago Meng surprised us with a new tool F-102 in 1:72, something a lot of us had been waiting for. The original Kit was the Case X wing. This was reviewed at the time by Paul, and his review can be seen here. Looking at the tooling it was apparent Meng had designed this for the Case XX wing to be made as well. Our wait is now over and the Case XX wing kit is here. As is common with a lot of military aircraft the F-102 was subjected to being constantly upgraded throughout its service life. One of these upgrades was to what we know
