  1. Part 1 of 3 Ki-43 notes 2019 As part of Ki-43 research I decided to buy and compare all modern 1/48 Ki-43 kits available side-by-side. This is unfair to model manufacturers as all the kits below do build up into believable Ki-43 models, however I am looking for the best and most accurate so I will harshly judge them by that criteria. There is much commonality among the parts, as in the real plane. The modern Ki-43 kits in 1/48 I compared were- Ki-43-I Nichimo Ki-43-I Hasegawa Ki-43-I Ki-43-II Otaki/Arii Ki-43-II Finemolds Ki-43
  2. Tiangong-1 and Shenzhou-8 Spacecraft Great Wall Hobby (GWH) 1:48 History During the early part of the 1970's China initiated a space programme, titled "Shunguang-1", with the intention of developing and using their own craft and astronauts for space exploration. The first astronauts were selected in April 1971 but nothing came of it and the project was cancelled. The programme was restarted in 1985 with the intention of building their own space shuttle however, at that time, China did not have sufficient technological knowledge or experience for such an elaborate undertaking and t
  3. Launch Tower & Space Shuttle with Booster Rockets Revell 1:144 Following the demise of the Saturn/Apollo programme, which ended with the Apollo/Soyuz Test Program (ASTP) in 1975, NASA moved on to a new era in space flight; that of the Shuttle Programme. The intention was to design, build and launch a manned vehicle that could carry a crew and cargo payload into low earth orbit, deliver its cargo, and then return to earth, land like an aircraft, and be reusable for future launches. The requirements for the Shuttle were to be that, unlike the Saturn/Apollo system which progres
  4. FINISHED MODEL Got this kit for £12(?) off a guy on Facebook, it sat in the stash for a week or two, but I was itching to build my first German aircraft (German aircraft being my favourites in WW2). Yeah the canopy needs a little clean up, but that's effort. It's not built to an amazing standard, just enough for me to be happy with it on display without close scrutiny. Criticism welcome though, I'm always looking to improve where I can (be bothered) . Yep wonky gear, haven't glued it yet, so that why. REVIEW Quick version (copy pasted from my revie
  5. Hi, I was wondering if anyone has used 26decals decals and would care to share a word about the ordering process and quality of the products? Many thanks in advance! Cristian PS: Ray at 26decals sure answers questions very fast!
  6. Hey, I was about to post my first review just to realize there is no "Start new topic" button on that page Are there any per-requisites for this like a certain number of posts? Should reviews be sent in differently? Thanks! Cristian

    Hi All, Has anyone seen the new Valom Harrow kit yet? Been working on the Contrail vac for some time, but this has to be a better option i would think. John
  8. BAe Harrier Gr Mk. 7/9 1:72 Revell Developed from the prototype Hawker Siddeley P.1127, which flew for the first time over fifty years ago, the vertical take-off Harrier has become one of the most famous post-war jet aircraft of all. Awarded what some would say is the ultimate accolade for a non-US designed aircraft – a purchase order from the United States Government – the first generation Harrier was successful enough to merit the development of a second generation. Despite a slightly troubled development, during which Hawker Siddeley pulled out of the joint Ango-American
  9. Hello, Having noticed a dearth of discussion regarding said kit, I thought I'd start the ball rolling myself. Sprue pics are already floating on the Net, however here are mine. Looks like this boxing is the only one that we'll get, with optional parts for early and late versions and something for the spare box as well. Manufacturers take advice: the fuselage interior shape follows, well, is the actual fuselage: the Karman fairing is a separate part. Great for accuracy, although it remains to be seen how this will affect putting on the wings. With respect to their first ki
  10. HAWKER HUNTER in RAF Service by AIRfile Hot on the heels of AIRfile's first 'single type' aircraft publication, the Fairey Swordfish, comes this book on the Hawker Hunter. This sleek and beautiful single engined jet has to be one of my all time favourite aircraft, ever since I first saw them in Borneo whilst on operations out there in the 1960's. The book is produced by Neil Robinson to his practical and visually impressive style of layout; starting with the a full colour photo on the A4 card cover, depicting a Hunter FGA.9 of 54 Sqn RAF. Within the book's 88 pages are chap
  11. I have posted a review of the new OzMods 1/72 Pilatus PC-9 on Aussie Modeller. http://www.aussiemodeller.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=8786&p=68384#p68384
  12. I've been reading various reviews on the merits of the Hasegawa / Italeri kits in 1/48 scale. As expected, the general opinion is that the Hasegawa wins hands down, however, I see the Italeri new mould kit, No.2716 is currently available for around £20, considerably less than the opposition. Rather than a review, has anyone who's built the Italeri (or both) versions any comments to offer? I appreciate there is still some work to be done on the Italeri kit, but a £30 saving is a considerable incentive to overcome this!
  13. Adler Gegen England (Eagle against England) The Luftwaffe's Air Campaign against the British Isles 1941-1945 Book by AirFile Adler Gegen England (Eagles against England) is the story of the Luftwaffe's attempts to subdue England; following their unsuccessful attempts to control the skies by destroying the RAF Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain. The story highlights how the Luftwaffe changed their tactics; to a concerted effort to bomb the industries, import and distribution networks, including the domestic infrastructure of Britain. Considered to be a major factor in
  14. Unmanned space probe VOYAGER 1:48 Hasegawa The Mission The Voyager space probe program was initiated to send two unmanned space probes into deep space with the intention of conducting near-passes of the giant planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Their mission (referred to as the Grand Tour) was to obtain images and data of those planets and transmit the information back to Earth for analysis and was planned to last approximately 5 years. This was no mean feat as the planets were millions of miles away from Earth; with Jupiter approx 550 million miles, Saturn
  15. Heinkel He 115 B/C Seaplane 1:72 Revell The handsome Heinkel He 115 was the largest twin-float sea plane used during the Second World War. Developed by Heinkel in the mid-1930s as a replacement for the He 59 seaplane, the He 115 was intended to fulfil the role of torpedo bomber, mine layer and reconnaissance aircraft. Although somewhat obsolete by the outbreak of war, the He 115 was able to remain in service throughout, due largely to the fact that it was able to undertake nocturnal mine laying duties while relatively unmolested by allied aircraft. The He 115 was a minor ex
  16. USS Kearsarge LHD-3 1:700 Hobbyboss The USS Kearsarge was the third of the ‘Wasp’ class of amphibious assault ships to enter service with the United States Navy. Commissioned in October 1993, she followed the USS Wasp and USS Essex into service. The eight ships of the Wasp Class (Wasp, Essex, Kearsarge, Boxer, Bataan, Bonhomme Richard, Iwo Jima and Makin Island) were each designed to ferry a detachment of over 1800 US Marines into battle, deploying them via landing craft, hovercraft and helicopters. The Wasp Class of ships are also able to deploy strike aircraft including A
  17. I confess I had missed this release so seeing the review on Hyperscale certainly caught my eye. What conversion options are there and how easy to do I wonder? http://www.hyperscale.com/2012/galleries/sealynxmk8832dw_1.htm
  18. Fairey Swordfish Mk.I Floatplane 1:72 Airfix Although somewhat antiquated in appearance when compared to its all-metal monoplane contemporaries, the Swordfish turned out to be a formidable warplane which earned itself a place in aviation history. The fabric-covered biplane took to the air for the first time in 1934 and entered service with the Fleet Air Arm two years later. Designed principally as a torpedo bomber and reconnaissance aircraft, the versatile Swordfish also found itself used for other roles such as anti-submarine warfare. It remained in squadron service longer
