  1. Hello Everyone... As my Condor Legion Ju.86 is nearing completion I will be gearing up for my next build. This will be Trumpeter’s 1/72 North American F-107A UltraSabre. This would have been built of course for the North American group build. I project a start sometime in the next week or so. Here are the sprue shots from a previously unopened kit. Ive done quite a bit of research with @72modeler and 99% sure will be going with the test scheme. Im not actually inspired by the test scheme and I still leave 1% open to a possible Whif scheme. I would need to find decals though for such a scheme. Most likely a former F-100 unit, or possibly F-105 unit from Europe circa early 1960’s. The theory being that these were competing with Republic for the same role, so F-105 units would also be good options. Maybe @RidgeRunner has some insights to this. I did reach out to him awhile ago via P/M but never got an answer. Questions, comments, and or thoughts please don't hesitate. Dennis
  2. Hi guys, here are some photos of a model being completed ... departing from the terrible Trumpeter Kit Tu16 K10 ... converted into K10-26 I propose a backward WIP, that is starting from the current state and the phases that preceded it ... sorry for my mistake english ... ciao Silvano
  3. Hi, Here is my interpretation of Wellington Mk.III HF670 'U' from 142 Squadron flying from Blida airfield during early 1943. The Trumpeter kit is an absolute joy to work with and the only criticism I can think of is that the wheels look too skinny. The decals are from the generic Xtradecal dull red and my reference was 'Wellington Squadrons in Focus' by Freer and Parry. I hope you like it, Russ
  4. I've lacked a Wyvern in my Fleet Air Arm collection for far too long, so the 60th anniversary of the Suez landings seems a suitable excuse to build the marvellous Trumpeter kit that has been hiding in my stash for many years now: This is a really nice kit, easy to build and most impressive looking when finished. I decided against the wing fold option. .... and with the rest of my Suez builds: FredT
  5. I've long wanted to do a 1/72 Sea Fury, and as a mojo-restorer I've taken the plunge and got myself the 1/72 Trumpeter kit. I know there's an MPM kit too, and that neither of these are perfect. But now I'm heading down the Trumpeter route, I'd welcome any advice on what the issues are with the kit and how to overcome them. I've seen comments that: The prop blades are too narrow and stuck into the boss at an odd angle. I think I can correct these problems but let me know if there's an easy route; The undercarriage legs are too short and should be mounted a bit further outboard from the centreline; The canopy has a nasty seam down the middle which I'll need to massage out. Any thoughts on these and other potential problems? I'm not sure what colour scheme I'll do, but it might not be a Royal Navy one. Any tips on decent & interesting decals also v welcome. Thanks folks, Justin
