  1. Need to put my La-5 aside, needs some serious work I think and need to get something done for end November for the local IPMS thing. Will get back to that shortly. Promise. So pulled this out. Bought completely by accident, wanted the SBD Dauntless, so ran into my local shop, saw Battle of Midway on the box side, grabbed it and rushed back to work. Realised when I got home I grabbed the Vibrator by accident. No complaints, wanted one of these too but still, not ideal. Box art in the usual Academy style. Sprue shots. Clear parts look good. This comes with PE lap belts and canopy masks (bonus!) out the box. 4 sprues of plastic goodness. Some minor flash and ejector marks. Started filling them last night with Mr Surfacer 500. Chances are good most will be invisible, but not taking chances. Close up of the holes on the cockpit side structures. Quite a few but shouldn't take long to sort out. Will be referencing THIS during the build. They appeared to have solved the sink marks that plagued the early (??) Accurate Miniatures release. So huzzah! As for scheme, would love to do a USMC Wind Indicator stationed on Midway during June 1942. So extreme weathering is required. Here's hoping I can pull that off.
  2. Special Hobby is to re-edit the Azur 1/48th Vought V-156F Vindicator "Aeronavale Service" kit under ref. SH 48213 This kit will contain the original Accurate Miniatures SB2U sprues (link) with new plastic wing for French version, new windshield, big PE parts and detailed PUR part. The decals will offer markings for four a/c instead of three as in the Azur boxing.

  3. Vindicator V-156F Masks (M48004 for Azur/Special Hobby) 1:48 Special Mask by Special Hobby The Vindicator has a long narrow greenhouse-style canopy with a lot of panes between the many frames, which may turn some modellers into gibbering wrecks at the thought of having to mask each individual one. Fear not, because as well as reboxing and updating this Accurate Miniatures kit that we reviewed here, they have also added a set of masks to their new line, making that task oh-so-much easier. Supplied on a sheet of yellow kabuki tape on a Caramac coloured backing sheet that gives it a brownish tint, these pre-cut masks supply you with a full set of masks for the canopy, with compound curves of the windscreen handled by using frame hugging masks, while the highly curved gaps are in-filled with either liquid mask or offcuts from the background tape. Each panel is cut with the radiused corners as appropriate for the framing, so you should be able to get them finished in double-quick time. You might wonder why there appear to be two sets of masks, but this is intentional, as the dimensions for the open canopy parts are necessarily different due to some parts having to overlap others, but the instructions aren’t too forthcoming on which is which. According to their website and the pictures of the product, the masks can also be used with the Accurate Miniatures/Azur/Special Hobby SB2U kits, which is nice. Highly recommended.
