  1. Kitty Hawk is preparing a 1/32nd North American T-28 Trojan family for 2015.

  2. Another model completed. I enjoyed doing it and that's why I want to share this pleasure with you. Here's the picture.
  3. My latest build, a 1/72 Heller T-28 converted to AT-28D of 15th Strike Wing of Philippine Airforce. Cockpit and canopy was from Pavla, cut and scratched build the airbrake; cut and reposition the flaps; added blade, whip antennae and red anti collision light on the rear fuselage; removed and filled the airscoop in the front fuselage; scratched build the gunpods and pylons. LAU-68 from Italeri's Huey kit and Mk-82 from Hasegawa's Aircraft Weapons 1. Decals are from Blue Diamond Decals. Thanks for looking.
  4. Here is my Trojan from Heller with Pavla resin cockpit. I added the armor headrest by shaping a piece of plastic I removed the airscoop on the top of the front fuselage and will level it with a piece of plastic. thanks for looking.
  5. After the ICM's Mustang ( http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234981984-148-north-american-p-51bc-d-mustang-rebox-icm-by-arsenal-model-group-amg), Arsenal Model Group (AMG) is to rebox the Roden's 1/48th North American T-28 Trojan as "aerobatic" - ref. 48504 Source: http://hobbyterra.com/product/american-t-28-trojan-aerobatic-amg-models-48504.html V.P.

  7. NA T-28 Trojan Detail sets 1:48 Aires and Quickboost Aires have recently released these three sets just for the Roden kit. Once removed from their casting blocks it looks as though they are drop in direct replacements although the modeller may need to thin the kit parts to get the bays to fit snugly. Plenty of dry fitting is recommended to get then to sit correctly. The Aires Wheel Bay set (4584) comes in the standard blown plastic box on a cardboard sleeve. Protected against most damage by a foam insert there are the three replacement bays, each beautifully rendered with lots of extra detail when compared with the kit parts. Each bay has the casting block on the top face which will need to be sanded down to fit, particularly inside the wings. Additional detail is provided on a separate block and includes extra piping, replacement undercarriage parts, such as actuators, links etc. All the bay doors are also provided as direct replacements giving a very fine edge, yet with nicely moulded structures on the inner faces. Beware though that the parts are very fragile and even though protected, some parts have still broken away from the blocks, such are the fineness of the connecting points. Quickboost Exhaust and Cooling Grill set (QB 48 523), is exactly that, finely moulded in grey resin the three grills, (more commonly known as cowl flaps), and two exhausts are contained in thin poly sleeve, but protected by the large ends of the casting block. The trailing edges of the flaps are super fine, giving a much nicer scale look to the items when mounted on the kit. The same can be said of the exhausts, the three pipes per mount are hollow enough to provide a much more refined look. Quickboost Control Lever and Rudder Pedal set (QB 48 513), provides, surprisingly, new rudder pedals and control levers, (joysticks). The control levers are super fine and great care will need to be exercised when removing them from the casting block and also removing the thin resin web that runs from top to base. The rudder pedals don’t look to be as bad to remove, but they are ultra thin, so much so you can see through them when held to the light. When using this set it may be wise to leave the joysticks till last as they will be the first thing to break when the cockpit is being manipulated. Conclusion These are three good looking and very nicely detailed sets to enhance the Roden Trojan. If you get nothing else for the kit, you really need wheel bay set. But if you want a great looking model of the T-28 then the finesse given by these sets will really give that additional detail that can lift a model. Highly recommended.

  8. T-28 Engine & Airbrake sets (for Roden) 1:48 Quickboost (QB48459 & QB48471) The new Roden kit reviewed here has a few rough edges, but is a nice kit overall, but as always can be improved upon. Aires' range of fast, drop-fit improvements are well named, and here we have two sets for review. T-28 Engine This is an incredibly detailed rendition of the T-28's Wright Cyclone R-1820 radial engine, sweeping away a number of parts from the kit, but with no instructions, the modeller is forced to guess what should be retained. This modeller feels that parts 5E, 19A, 10E, 1E, 2E, 7E, 6E, 3E and 16B could all be consigned to the spares bin, but replacement pushrods will be needed to replace those lost with 5E, so take care when making your decision. As the casting includes the back-plate 16B, it is a drop-fit into the fuselage with the above-mentioned caveats of the push-rods. Part 4E would seem to be retained, but don't take my word for it – check your references! Detail is exceptional, as would be expected from Aires products, and if you feel the engine needs some work, this is a worthwhile upgrade. T-28 Airbrake The kit airbrake is necessarily chunky to survive the injection moulding process, although it does have the characteristic lightening holes moulded in. The resin part however is much more dainty, reaching scale thickness, and having internal structure moulded in. The lightening holes are flashed over with a thin skin of resin, but this is easy to remove with a sharp knife, drill bit, reamer or similar. A pair of retraction arms are also included to replace the overly thick parts supplied with the kit. A simple replacement that improves detail, with no fettling of the remaining kit parts required, it lives up to the brand name – Quickboost.
