  1. Hi everyone, after the FJ-2 tail surfaces correction set, a couple more Fury resin products for the Kitty Hawk kit are available for purchase from Hypersonic Models and selected partners: First a cockpit update set that provides a new aft bulkhead and turtledeck with all the details, a detailed ejection seat with belts and harness straps and a part for the loop antenna assembly. https://www.hypersonicmodels.com/product/fj-2-fury-cockpit-update-set Next is a nose gear strut with the lower (corrected) yoke cast in brass and the upper resin strut with
  2. Can anyone suggest where I might find images of the C-130J cockpit. I am looking for the general layout to try and improve on the 1/72 Italeri kit for the RAF version. Thanks Alasdair
  3. Avro Lancaster B Mk.I Nose Art Kit (01E033) 1:32 HK Models The Lancaster was a development from the two-engined Manchester, which was always an unsatisfactory aircraft. The Manchester was a response to the air force's obsession with twin-engined bombers in the 30s, which would have required engines of greater power than were available at the time, and led to a change in mindset due to the comparative success of our allies with four-engined bombers. Rather than start from scratch, AVRO simply re-designed the Manchester by adding an extra wing section between the
  4. Hi all, I'm a sad case as I know little about the Harvard (T-6) but I am embarking on a build of a Heller kit, converting it to a South African machine. My question is about the colour of the cockpit. Was it black throughout or were there some green sections, or something else? I'd valuie your thoughts in inputs. Thanks in advance, Martin

  6. J-35 Draken Updates (for Hasegawa) 1:48 Eduard Hasegawa answered a lot of prayers when they released their kit of the venerable Saab Draken, and there have been some sets available for it previously, but these are new ones. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. There are two sets, both intended for the cockpit, with the seatbelts separated so they can be etched in the new thinner steel PE.
  7. So my dad bought the Tamiya 1:72 MiG-29 a while back and I am building it for him soon, I have a question about the cockpit though, is the MiG-29 cockpit turquoise like earlier Soviet/Russian jets or is it grey like newer cockpits. I am asking because I checked on the internet and I came up with mixed results, some not even the MiG-29. Thanks in advance

    HP Halifax question

    Hello ... The bulkhead immediately behind the pilot’s seat in a HP Halifax has three ‘windows’ at the top. I *think* the bulkhead was armoured, and that the ‘windows’ were glazed. Can someone please confirm that these windows were glazed, not left open? Thanks in advance, Jonny
  9. Hello all! I have been browsing Britmodeller for a couple of years while I was gathering up my modern European jet kits. I have been building mostly 1/48th USAF kits but the European jets are so cool looking and I have some history with a couple. Got the Draken, Gripen, Typhoon, Rafale, Mirage 2000, and a couple of Tornados (IDS and ADV) lined up to build. I started with the Revell Germany 1/48th Eurofighter Typhoon and got to the painting stage when I broke the canopy in half trying to get the mold line off. Revell did send me a replacement but I did not get back to it yet. Whil
  10. Hey everyone im looking for detailed photos of Me-262a1a cockpits. I have instrument panel photo’s but cant find a photo of the armor plate and seatbelts.
  11. Hi guys, I am working on a 1/72 Special Hobby DH-100 Vampire FB52 - building it as a Mk6 of the Swiss air force. It's just the second 1/72 kit I build. I tried to build the instrument panel by using gloss black and white to paint individual gauges/instruments. What works quite well in 1/48 looks in 1/72 just wrong. Mainly the white gauges stand out too much looking not right. The only alternative I know of is either using decals or just painting the instruments with gloss black and putting a drop of clear color over it to simulate the glass cover
  12. Does anyone out there are any references (images) for the TB-26 Invader, please? Martin
  13. OK, I know we are all getting pretty fired up to do FJ-2's right about now, and I'm sure this question isn't new, but selfishly for my benefit, could Sabrejet or Tailspin Turtle elaborate on this query? I want to get this one right! Regarding the FJ-2, on a natural metal VMF-235 Fury, would these colors be correct? Did Sword get the longer windscreen correct? Did I get this right? cockpit below consoles, seat: FS36231 dk. gull grey wheel bays, speed brake bays: FS 34151, chromate green landing gear doors, speed brake door interior, including edges: FS 31136, insignia
  14. Good evening, first proper build post from me on the forums! Well it all started after a trip to the Midland Air Museum in Coventry where I got the fantastic chance to get inside an Avro Vulcan and see what it was like inside, and by god what an aircraft! I wish I had taken a lot more photographs but thanks to a thread that I found on the forums prior to joining, I found a nice walkaround inside of the cockpit. This was then followed by an enquiry to the Vulcan To The Sky Trust and after they gave me a few pages of the crew manual showing the details of both the front and rear cockpit, they a
  15. Hello modeller friends, I'm currently building a Tamiya 1/48 Skyraider USN early 1960s with a bucket seat (as opposed to the later Yankee extraction seat). I searched long and large but cannot find a reference for the colour of the seat belts/harness. Can any of you Skyraider experts help me in that matter? Thank you in advance, Cheers, Quang
  16. Hi everybody! The first pictures of my bf 109. Very nice kit and a great level of details, I added only few wires and 2-3 other things. I hope you will like it! The painted cockpit in the next post.
  17. Hello to everyone. I have a few questions and need some help from you First i would like to know can you suggest where could I find some pictures of landing gear interior, cockpit, engine ?? I did try to google but for some thing I get like houndred different things (cockpit) so I don't know which one is most accurate, for some stuff I just can't even find the pictures of real airplane, just pictures of some finished models (landing gear interior) ...

  19. Fw 190A-5 Cockpit - For Eduard Kit 1:72 Eduard Brassin This set from Eduard is designed for their new tool Fw 190A-5 which we reviewed here. The set under the Brassin label contains 8 resin parts, and a colour photo etched set. The resin parts consist of the main cockpit tub, seat, instrument panels, two types of instrument coaming, control column, and a throttle lever. The photo etch fret contains parts for the front canopy frames, rear armoured bulkhead, rear interior canopy frame, seat belts, instrument panel details, rudder pedals, and interior cockpit parts.

  20. Afternoon All, I recently acquired the Aeroclub 1/72 De Havilland Venom FB1 and FB4 kits with the intention of building them as RAF machines from 249 (FB1) and 28 (FB4) Sqdns. I'm looking to see if anyone has some decent cockpit interior images so I can add some detail to the cockpit interiors? Anything you can provide me with would be gratefully received! Thanks in advance, Mark.
  21. New from NeOmega - a 1/48th cockpit to fit the Trumpeter kit http://www.neomega-resin.com/su-24-cockpit-148th-scale-883-p.asp This will also fit the Komplekt Zip resin accurate nose kit also! AVAILABLE NOW! Marry Christmas! Gordon.
  22. Bell P-39Q/N Dream Model 1:32 The new 1:32 Bell P-39Q/N from KittyHawk is a very nice kit straight from the box, but there’s always room for improvement, and Dream Model have released this etch set just for this occasion. Designed purely for the cockpit the single pre-painted sheet is full of those useful little items that can really make a cockpit. The set also includes the instrument panels in a three part systems, where the instruments, printed on an acetate sheet are glued to the back of the panel, then white pare, the templates of which are provided are glued to the back of the
  23. I am finally getting around to starting on my Academy/Minicraft 1/72 B-17C, for our group's Pearl Harbor 75th Anniversary build. I want to add a little detail to the interior, using plastic & stuff (No commercial aftermarket parts). I have already scratch-built the supercharger & intercooler intakes. I am ready to start on the cockpit, but I am not sure if the B-17C actually had 4 seats or only 2. A google search wasn't very informative. Are they the same type of seats that were in the B-17G, with the same elaborate truss structure? Does anybody have any good photos, showing any ot
  24. Like the Spitfire, the Hurricane had one too, but I struggle to get information how it was entering the cockpit. The oxygen bottle was behind the seat as can be seen on the Finnish Hurricane undergoing restoration. This is the only picture I could find showing the tube dangling down the seat. How does it get there from behind the seat? on the port or starboard side? It looks the valve on the bottle is on the starboard side, but the tube ends up on the port side of the seat... It would be great if anyone could shed some light onto this. Many thanks, Peter
  25. Hi All, Just coming back to modelling after a 10 year break and I'm posting a few of the things I had just finished before my absence from the fold. This is a conversion I did of the old ESCI 1/12 scale F-16A cockpit to F-16AM standard. My day job is a simulation software engineer and at the time I was working on a sim of this aircraft for the Dutch and Norwegian AF. So I was lucky enough to have access to the appropriate TOs which hopefully means it's accurate! Although I'm sure some eagle-eyed Viper experts will spot something! As those who know F-16s will be aware, the F-16AM cockpit
