I'd certainly be up for a Battle. The MPM one just didn't cut it for me; overengineered and the fit was pretty bad. 

 

And woefully inaccurate.

 

An Arma Battle to the standard of their Hurricane would be amazing. 

 

A Hawk 75 would be interesting, although the AZ kit ticked that box for me

Hi Dave,

 

Your mileage may vary but IMHO AZ Hawk 75A fuselage is hopelessly too narrow. Certainly no room for a Twin Waasp inside and rear fuselage remembering more like a flat fish than one of the Curtiss's masterpieces...

 

Cheers,

Detail inaccuracy is not a big point for me, but unbuildability certainly is. That MPM kit was just a mess as far as that goes.

There are concave and convex rivets on the model -  just cut off the convex ones, paste upside down in place of the concave and voila. Over 3000 pcs. as they write in the blog 😀.  

Sorry for the off top.

Humanity has long invented putty & sandpaper for modeller's!

 

But this easy way 😁....maybe best way use 3d printing for high-precision filling out concave rivets

and cutting laser

for convex rivets?

Wow! A beautiful-looking kit!

 

Only a couple of things make me to wonder a bit:

- Is the wing tip shape really so "Spitfireish"? I'm away from my references and my picture search didn't give me certainty. What do John Thompson say?

- Rear fuselage fabric covering is really petite. I wish to see it painted before saying more about it but in contrast tail ribbing seems to be on a bit heavy side.

 

Welcome and certainly filling a big gap in models of the VVS.

 

Cheers,

Thanks for the vote of confidence; no, the wing tip shape looks good to me. I'm hopeful that Arma will start next week shipping the kits that were pre-ordered a month ago, and then anyone who bought one (or more!) can have eyes on the actual product.

I don’t like all those rivets! 😀

Gotta agree. I'm no fan of rivets in 1:72.

Hi John

 

You are welcome!

 

As one advertisement said: "Ask one, who owns one" I remembered your labour-intensive Jak-1 project and thought you have better knowledge than my "mental image" of the Yakovlev's shapes ;) 

 

And yes, I'm eagerly waiting delivery of the two with a single model price offer kits!

 

Cheers,

 

AaCee
