    My Finnish “Mersu !”

    Hello everyone... The landing gear for the Mersu is on and set. Next up is the weathering and other little bits like antennas. Hope it looks good enough to pass muster. Questions, comments, or good stories ? Dennis
  3. Very nice work on the handles and belts Steve

    KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

    I have a few of those myself. They were good kits in their day, but badly need replacing by modern, cutting edge kits.

    Has there ever been a Sukhoi GB?

    OH YEAH BABY!!!!! count me in with bells on!! I still have another Su-17 to build, plus the Frogfoot. @Ham Hands you're on the right track just starting this thread, just start a list in your first thread to keep track on the number, we need 30 to got through to the vote. Keep it as the Sukhoi GB, you should get more interest, this could be a big GB. @Corsairfoxfouruncle you're going to be a very busy wee chappy......that said I may have 3 next year as well! Plastyk (ex Smer) do a 1/72nd Su-22 with Polish makings. Plus there are some really nice markings for Polish aircraft by ModelMaker for the 2 seater Su-22UM, there are a few of them available as well

    1/72 - F-15E Strike Eagle - by G.W.H (GWH, Great Wall Hobby)

    Good news, though there are another two schemes to cover for the other two squadrons, but I'm sure a decal manufacturer will be along with that very soon.

    Tornado warning

    Hi Chaps, The great Enzo has replied and given us a date. So the long range weather forecast for a Tornado warning is September 2020. Maybe a bit further into the future than wanted but reasonable based on the current number of active builds. Still plenty of time to clear the bench, get some goodies delivered and be ready to go. Colin
  15. That SEAC scheme looks nice, that's two I'll want now. Steve.

    1:48 B-24 conversions & replacement vac canopies

    I am not sure. Lone star will issue a full kit not a conversion. The other one may have used the old concise model and graphics resin conversion as a starting point but it us hard to tell from the pictures. I have used that guy for some vacuform replacement canopies and been pleased. The resin sets where put in a drawer to stay as I was not impressed. The B-36 slumbers until I retire. As to PB4Y-2s and 1s, I'm going with Lone Star as the detail level is vastly superior and better casting quality.

    Vietnam Patton

    Maybe late now, but despite what the decal sheet shows, I would tone down or eliminate the blue of the cupola glass and periscopes. On the real thing, there is not really much of any color to it, as depending on the situation not much light may be showing through these. Just my opinion. This thread on Armorama discussing various non standard .50 cal mounting points has some good pics of the cupola and its glass as well. https://armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=247647

    Spitfires over Holland May 13th 1940

    You can look through the entries here for that date, zeroing on the particular pilots you have listed. Clicking the Preview an image of this record allows you to view scans of the squadron diary entries, just hope the watermark doesn't obstruct anything important. https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/results/r?_q= 13-MAY-1940 regards, Jack

    Shooting Starfire

    My condolences. I expected more figment issues with the academy version I did but surprisingly enough it was easily remedied by only glueing a little at a time and I used superglue on the leading edge. if I see that I would have just threw it out lol...good luck.

  26. Ah, so the pylon that would carry the AGM-88s? USN E/Fs routinely carry the AIM-120 there but don’t recall seeing the sidewinder

  28. Just picked this up from the Hobby Lobby chain stores here in the US. $17 after using a 40% off coupon. I'd say that's a steal.
