  2. I'm trying to find out more about the window in the "Car Door" on early Hawker Typhoons. Some authors suggest that this could be raised and lowered, like a car window. Despite much searching I cannot find either a photo of a window "half open" or even any authoritative confirmation that it was movable. Does anyone here know?
  3. Hello all, I am intending to build the Revell 04478-0389 1/32 kit of the venerable Sud-Aviation SE 3130 Alouette II, but on floats, in civillian livery and markings. The aircraft chosen will be Zulu Kilo Hotel November Whisky (KZ-HNW) registered to Helicopters NZ (HNZ) and has an all-orange airframe with white cabin roof and yellow tail skid. The floats appear in the photo that I have to be white or a very light grey, with dark grey strips. Kit box via Scalemates: The photo of the aircaft can be seen here (via the HelicoptersNZ in the 1970s page from 'Top Birds & Everyfing' on Typepad): Photo copyright Top Birds & Everyfing on Typepad This photo also suggests the basis for a very simple but highly-contrasting diorama. The kit has a relatively large number of parts, (at least compared with the as-yet uncompleted and possibly ill-fated Accursèd Seafire 1/72 kit by Pavla that nearly drove me around the twist in very short order: I have a house brick on standby for that one), even without the bits for the Nord 5210 SS-11 missile system. This kit has been impinging on me off and on for some time now, and this Group Build is the perfect opportunity to do something with it . I have very clear memories from when I were quite small of seeing pictures of Alouette-like helicopters with floats on buzzing about, so I went looking on ye internet, and sure enough, quite a few turned up. The one that leapt out at me was the very attractive (well, to me at any rate) orange, white and yellow HNZ machine. I have read through the instructions (I keep all the kit instructions separate from the kits in my collection - coz I'm weird) and will trundle down to the lockup and attempt to retrieve the kit from the slightly-ordered mound of removalist's boxes that the stored part of my collection lives in, in the next day or so. The floats will be made from fine-celled blue Styrofoam building insulation, which I acquired a few sheets of a while ago for making parts for my flying radio-controlled scale models (last used for cowling scoops for my 1:5 Chippie cowling plug). I still have a lot left. If all goes according to plan I might even be able to float it in the bathtub. So, that's the plan. I also have a Plan B, which involves the Airfix 1/72 Crab Sea King HAR3 helicopter - which needs no introduction to anyone. Another brightly-coloured aircraft, all-yellow this time of course. I'll post again with some snaps once I've dug out the kit. Cheers, Alex. <-- likes the look of the nice grass in that photo above. Being in New Zealand, a sheep probably wouldn't be out of place on the mooted diorama...

  6. Hi folks, Happy New Year. My first out of the hangar for 2015, OOB except for a scratch built oil cooler intake and spray painted roundels, fin flashes, sqn codes and serial nos. using the kit decals as templates for home made vinyl masks: Regards J A
  7. Can anyone recommend any aftermarket bits and bobs , looking to gussy it up a bit in the cockpit area
  8. Hi all, Revells 32nd Typhoon with Xtradecal & Aires Engines added. "The Third Shall Be First" Brian.
  9. Started this yesterday and I have to say I'm actually disappointed with the kit. It's very thick brittle plastic with very large attachements to the sprue: extreme care needed when taking bits of. The cockpit & engines are very simple and plain, the undercarrige looks just awful and I've decided immediatly on an in-flight display. The stand is nice and the overall lines of this space fighter are fantastic: I just need to do a good paint job to redeem some of the other features. Top & bottom: Engines: I'll probable add some of my own piping Cockpit: I've added to scaps of plastic to the side walls where decals go just to give them some dimension The pilot fiure is also quite nice. There are plenty of decals which should make it look better but it's going to really depend on the paint job to look decent
  10. To begin the new year in the right way there's nothing better than a good model. The new Revell He 162 32nd scale is really a very nice kit. It comes together almost without putty and there is a lot of fun adding some details to the engine in such an unusual position. Only the pilot seat, one of the first ejectable, could be a bit more accurate, but can't complain. The model is built OOB with some scratchbuilt details for the cockpit and the engine. Painting as been done with airbrush using as always Tamiya acrylics. Hope you like it. Comments and suggestions are always welcome. Happy new year! Andy
