  1. Hi - I got out my Trumpeter TBF-1C Avenger (02233), which I bought on ebay years ago. Upon receipt I noticed the torpedo was missing from sprue H and this was resolved. Being dim, I did not check the sprue to the parts diagram. I now realise that Trumper put the undercarriage on sprue H. So, I have no undercarriage. I just wondered if anyone had built the kit wheels up and could sell me the sprue. TIA
  2. Hi Guys need help with the colour on French Hellcat operating in Iindochiine 1953, on the wheel wells, undercarriage plus inside of the engine cowl . Thanks for looking Wellzy.
  3. Brass Landing Gear (internal) for Hobby Boss B-24J Liberator 1:32 Aerocraft Models We reviewed the new Hobby Boss B-24J recently here, and we generally liked it, with one very important issue that could affect the finished model's durability. The plastic gear legs. I measured the weight of the seven largest parts as 640g, to which there is 300g of nose weight to be added, plus a complete interior, engines, paint, glue and any aftermarket that you may decide to throw into the mix. My estimate of the finished weight could be 1.5kg or more, and Hobby Boss have incl
  4. Hi All, I have started this new thread because I want to more broadly cover the things that Spitfires rest upon while on the ground. My intention is to cover/discuss the main undercarriage and tail wheel units as fitted to various Spitfire aircraft. While on occasion looking more closely at the specifics of Spitfire legs. To introduce the topic I will list the various types of struts as fitted on Spitfire main undercarriage and tail wheel units. Please note that the following list of main undercarriage and tail wheel unit strut types is incomplete (with some obvious omissions) and may even
  5. Hi All, I have just got hold of a Tamiya Tomcat and am about to order some decals on line. The kit looks quite heavy and the plastic undercarriage maybe a bit weak. Has anyone built this and is it worth spending another #20 on the white metal undercarriage legs from SAC? Cheers Colin
  6. Focke Wulf 190 Wheels and Main Undercarriage 1:32 Brassin As good as the wheels and undercarriage are on the new Revell 1:32 Fw-190F8 the seams on the tyres will take some careful sanding to completely remove them and thus probably a lot of detail. These new wheels come in the standard blister pack with two layers of foam protecting them. On opening the quality of parts really stands out. The tyres, with very finely engraved treads, the mains with radial treads along with the tailwheel which whilst having no tread the hubs are beautifully moulded with a more natural look than the ki
  7. Hello, everyone. I'm thinking of using an Airfix Meteor III in my stash for a Trent Meteor conversion. It seems to be a simple enough job, with a pair of scratchbuilt auxiliary fins, Trent nacelles built up with putty, an Aeroclub Mk I canopy and a pair of 5-bladed props & spinner (from Testor's Spitfire 24, perhaps?) and some tweaking here and there. Then there is the undercarriage problem: it seems the Trent Meteor had a longer landing gear to give clearance for the Rotol props. Does anyone have an illustration of some sort to show how this elongated landing gear looked like? Also, where
  8. Vickers Valiant Bk.Mk.1 Update Sets (for Airfix) 1:72 Eduard The highly anticipated Valiant kit has been knocking about the shelves now for some time, and so have a couple of these Photo-Etch (PE) sets. The rest are brand new, fresh from the Eduard stables, and will give your Airfix kit a boost, correcting some of the inaccuracies and less detailed parts that are found within the kit. Cockpit Set (73428) You can't see a massive amount of the interior of the Valiant when the canopy is applied and painted, but if you're planning on lighting it, or leaving the canopy loose to show of
