Most post-war "DC-3s" (actually converted C-47s or other military variants) had the forged u/c legs, having been made with them; in Australia, at least, all pre-war DC-3s (the four ANA aircraft) were converted to the forged type during their war service and not converted back. I'd imagine that this would have happened elsewhere as well. Apart from being stronger, the forged components were easier to get, and so the question of spares was easier to address.
jrlx replied to jrlx's topic in Work in Progress - AircraftThank you Ced! The German course is in its last level and semester. I managed to pass in the C1 level exam in February and am now in the C2 level. The last exam is in late June. It doesn't get any easier and we're now using the language at a very sophisticated level. Cheers Jaime
Rabbit Leader replied to Rabbit Leader's topic in Cold WarThat's more than fine John, with all the Canberra information you've happily provided over the years, you more than deserve a second pint! Cheers and thanks for all your help (and latest pic) on this topic.. Dave
Well this is the original boxing with the VMFP-3 Decals. So i will need to find one in very good condition. Otherwise i have the Hasegawa kit as a backup. Its just that Gold colored Bear that i remember so much. https://www.airliners.net/photo/USA-Marines/McDonnell-RF-4B-Phantom-II/1329601 Its just been a plane I've wanted to redo since 1985. Dennis
Col. replied to Fatcawthorne's topic in 50s NATO v Warsaw Pact in Europe GBVery nice!
What if we did a Britain’s got talent Amnesty stash swap? I was thinking I remember every kit I made as a kid but I can remember one kit I didn’t make as a kid that was a Fw190 matchbox. I can remember the actual date I first saw it 26th January 1991 in a John Menzies shop after my first football match. There must be a few people out there who have this kit and will never build? Just an idea....
While there's a couple F-4 Phantoms and a Cessna O-1 Bird-dog in the stash that would do the job for this one I'm thinking to search out a something from the North side such as a MiG-17 or -21, An-2 or, if I can find out how it looked, the T-28
I have a few GBs in mind but I'm loathe to suggest them because frankly, I'm a terrible GB host. If anyone(s) would be willing to host my suggestions, I'd be happy to post them. Or if anyone wants to suggest and host them, PM me and we can chat.
Corsairfoxfouruncle replied to Ettore's topic in Trainers GBI always loved the look of these. Shes really looking good Ettore.
Kirk replied to roma847's topic in Work In Progress - SF & RealSpaceI do love the way you are so clinical Manfred. I saw something that said "about the consistency of chicken noodle soup" once and this probably explains why any airbrushing I have done has been so hit and miss. Thanks for showing that there are more rigorous ways to do things...
I bow down to your superior intel. You are correct. I didn't do a complete read of all the pages, just a quick scan and a look at photo captions. I know! Sloppy research on my part. Thank you for providing the information. Still, Revell got the look totally wrong. The outlet end of the sax should be curved, not the straight slot, slab-sided thing Revell provides.
