  1. Roden is to release a 1/32nd Boeing/Stearman PT-13 Kaydet kit - ref. 631 Source: http://www.roden.eu/HTML/framemodels.htm V.P.
  2. Hi, please I have a question about the Stearman aircraft used for training (in U.S. Navy) during WWII. Because training airplanes sometimes did not have radios, when a sudden storm or other emergency arose, a "Recall" aircraft was launched. When a cadet saw the Recall airplane flying through the area, he knew he should return to the base immediately. This Recall aircraft was painted in its entirety with dark stripes on a white background. As an example, the image below is from the website "The Aero Experience: Stearman Flight Clinic Provides Opportunity to Share an Aero Experience". It's a restored Stearman, painted with black and white stripes. However, other sources say that in fact the stripes were Insignia blue and White, "according to the old U.S. Navy Recall flag, the origins of which date back to 1777". I searched the Internet, but I did not find this specific "Recall flag". What are the correct colors for the Recall aircraft stripes, blue and white or black and white? And, were there other planes besides the Stearman painted like that? Or just the Stearman? Thanks in advance.

  4. Stearman PT-17 1:48 Iliad Designs The PT-17 was the military designation of the Boeing-Stearman Model 75. This was used as a the primary trailer for the USAAF, USN and RCAF. It was a conventional biplane of rugged construction with large, fixed tailwheel undercarriage, and accommodation for the student and instructor in open tandem cockpits. This new sheet from ILIAD allows for 5 different aircraft can be built from the sheet; PT-17 4th British Flight Training School, Mesa, Arizona earl 1940. PT-17, S/N 216546, Kunming, China 1943. N2S-3 (USN PT-17) S/N 39123. California 1944. N2S-4 USN S/N 29950, Michigan, 1942. PT-27 (RCAF PT-17) FJ888 of 36 EFTS, Pearce, Alberta 1942. The decals look excellent, well printed, colour dense and with minimal carrier film. Conclusion These decals will help the modeller make a good looking PT-17. Highly Recommended.
