  1. Hello again, seems like only a few days ago that I was writing up last year's build log. Time flies! But, I was determined to make the best of this rather trying year... Anyway, here are this years completed models, although a couple were shelf queens from yesteryear. First up, the Lift Here Models Piper PA-58 -- last of the Mustangs: For those interested, the build thread is HERE Next up, the first Great Blue Whale, the XA3D-1 conversion of the Hasegawa A3B: XA3D-1 Build Thread HERE Next up, the Wingnuts
  2. Hi Chaps, Well 2020 proved to be quite a productive year with 10 models completed and a few more well advanced but to be completed in 2021 . The first model was built in February for @trickyrich's 'Nordic Group Build', a Special Hobby Saab Viggen. Modifcations made to the cannards and scratch built Anti ship missiles @rob85's 'In the Navy Group Build' allowied me to build a New Zealand Navy SH2G from Kittyhawks excellent kit. The 'In the Navy Group Build' also encouraged a Fairey Fulmar. Quite a challenging kit which has been in the stash for many
  3. Hi, all! Reading the technical manual for the I-300, the prototype of the MiG-9, drew attention on two type wheels on this aircraft: Soviet type. Main wheels: 660×160 mm Nose wheel: 480×210 mm ....and American wheels. Main wheels: 26×6 inch Nose wheel: 19 inch. The question is, on which American aircraft were these types of wheels used ( maybe P-39 or P-63?) ? B.R. Serge
  4. Hello people I'm new to Group Builds and I apologise if I shouldn't be making suggestions. I'm not all that sure of how the whole process goes; but this is just an idea - one close to my heart/home in fact. My wife's grandfather was the chap portrayed by Anthony Hopkins in the film 'The World's Fastest Indian'; Burt Munro. He wasn't an Indian; it was the make of an extremely old motorcycle; one that he dedicated his life to, and got the world record for the fastest of it's type after trekking all the way from one of the Southernmost parts of New Zealand (Invercargi
  5. - experimental vehicles - prototypes - record breakers (if specially modified) - flying laboratories - one of a kind Examples (some qualify by in more than one category) : Experimental: XB-35, X-29, X-47B, Su-47, Maus tank Ptototypes YB-49, YF-23, Sukhoi T-50, Concorde G-BSST, A-380 and B-787 in "First Flight" livery Record breakers TB-1 "Strana Sovetov", Bloodhound SSC, Ruthan Voyager SR-71 is an example that DOES NOT qualify as no special modifications were made Flying Laboratories NB-52, Tu-144LL One of a kind An-225, Sukhoi T-4, Wright Flyer Worth trying ?
  6. My main interest is in experimental aircraft and prototypes, especially those 'G-Whizz'aircraft of my childhood when new and exciting types appeared regularly. All are 1/72 scale Supermarine 510, Maintrack Vacform (my first vacform) Hawker Hunter prototype, PJ Hunter F6 resin with 'knobbly' bits removed. Anti-spin parachute added and home-made registration letters. The font I used to make the letters didn't match the photo I had, so I spent some time modifying the figure '8' only to find that when the registrations were cut up and spread over the u/c legs you couldn't tell the difference!
