  1. 9A52-2 SMERCH-M 1/35th scale Trumpeter 01020 Hmmmm! Now, here is the dilema??? Two at Once? This is a dilema many of us come across, especially these days with competition as it is - MENG or Trumpeter, Trumpeter or MENG - which one shall I build? Well, the £20 difference in basic costs does make a certain statement and as I already have the Trumpeter Scud-B on the back burner I decided on economy. A lot fewer sprues but much larger and, without sitting down for several hours to count them, the number of parts would look to be similar quantity. Costs in at £79.99 RRP Section 1 and 49 parts. Construction of the main chassis - right side At 322mm long and 20mm/35mm across this is the most important part of the chassis All jigged up on my Picador Blocks, the chassis is square and true. Section 2 and a further 25 parts complete phase 2 of the main chassis At this point, everything fits in extremely well with no surprises. So far, all parts are well engineered. The left side-member is not yet glued but is held in place with tape to ensure the cross-members dry correctly. A few more bits still to add. Next Time: Remaining Chassis & Engine
  2. I hope that you folks in the Real Space category will graciously accept a few Cold War rockets and missiles..... My very first attempt at modelling again after an absence of over 40 years!! Thanks Steve
  3. Hi, with my 1/48 Trumpeter Westland Wyvern in the last stages of completion I have to install the 60lbs rockets within the next days but I can't find any pictures that show how the wiring for those is attached to the aircraft and the rocket, i.e. where does it come from and where does it go on the rocket. Does anybody know? Ingo
  4. Hi everyone I am looking for some Sura rockets for my Fly Model 1:48 Strikemaster (the Omani option). I know this is a big-time long shot, but if I remember right, someone was able to get a set from a Hunter from someone on this site. If someone can help me on this Lord of the Rings-type quest that would be great, thanks from Josh.
  5. British RP-3 Rockets 1:24 Master Models Just in from Master Models are these three sets of rockets and warheads for use with any British 1:24 scale aircraft, but are mainly designed for the Airfix Mosquito and Typhoon. There are two packs of rockets with hangers for either early Mk1 rails or the later MkIII, and a separate pack of warheads for those who want something a little different. Each pack of rockets contains eight tubular brass bodies, nozzles, 60lb warheads, pig tail wires, sixteen fins and a sheet of decals. When assembled they will be quite weighty affairs, which probably explains the use of the styrene hangers as even the best folded and glued brass would have difficulty staying together, it also makes them a whole lot easier to assemble and use. The heads and nozzles are beautifully turned as we have come to expect from Master Models and the only parts that require any clean up are the etched brass fins once they are cut away from the sheet. These then fit into pre-cut slots at the ends of the brass tubes before fitting the etched fin attachment brackets and nozzle. Before adding the warhead, which also just slots in at the other end, the hangers will need to be slid along the tube into position. The only difference I can see with the hangers is that the Mk1’s use a T shaped piece which slide on the internal guides of the rail whilst the MkIII has a U shaped top to slide on external guides. The separate warhead pack contains three different type of warhead, eight of each. They are:- 60lb Semi Armour Piercing, Fragmentation 25lb Armour Piercing MkIII 25lb Armour Piercing MkI, with alternative decals for the similar looking 25lb Semi Armour Piercing round. The 60lb SAP Frag, is the only warhead that requires additional parts which include the arming vane and nosecone. Other than that each warhead is a simple slide in replacement as for the more commonly seen 60lb warhead contained in the above sets. Conclusion Whilst some modellers will be quite content with the rockets Airfix provided with the Typhoon and mosquito kits the warheads on these new items look much in line with the real things. The rest could be said to be superfluous, but in my view they have a finesse that even in this scale cannot be realised in styrene. The only thing that will be awkward to get right are the pig tails, especially if they are not connected to the aircraft. Getting etch/turned brass to hang naturally isn’t easy, even after tempering them, but since the end pieces are so nice, it will certainly be worth the effort. Very highly recommended.

  7. Hi, Here is one photo from Finland's SA-archive. There are many stories about IL-2's shooting rockets backwards. According the original text here is rail of rocket. I haven't seen any pictures before. -Vesa
