    Saturn V question and Future Build.

    I bought this set when I built my Dragon Saturn V, and I have to say they are essential when building the kit, especially as Dragon left off so much ( Most ? ) detail from their kit.

    Tamiya New Tool 1/48 Spitfire I?

    At least you know if it's a Tamiya kit it will fit together easily .

    Books on German WWII Aircraft

    The Airframe In Miniature books ( No. 5 and No. 11 ) by Valiant Wings have all the detail you could wish for on all variants of the 109, with loads of detail photos, drawings and scale plans, plus info on colour schemes and a section on scale models.

    The Incredible 1/32 Tamiya Mossie

    That's a superb model, and knocks the Airfix 1/24 kit into a cocked hat, with MUCH more detail ( And i bet it fits better ! )

    Colour of F-4 intake interiors

    Well that's something I never knew, so thanks for that. Just proves that you should always be wary of " Standard " practices !

    Colour of F-4 intake interiors

    As an ex RAF groundcrew member on 17 Squadron I can confidently say that F-4M's ( AKA FGR 2 ) in the early Dk. green and Dk. sea grey camo were painted back to a point in line with the wing leading edge, as were the Viet Nam camo F-4c, F-4D & F-4E. Royal Navy Phantoms had white intakes right up to the rear of the splitter plate.

    Revell 1/32 P-51D Late Version delayed/cancelled?

    I don't have this kit, but if it builds up as well as their Focke Wulf 190F then it'll be worth the wait.

    Revell 1/32 P-51D Late Version delayed/cancelled?

    Having built the Tamiya kit I can safely say you won't be disappointed. True, it is a tad expensive, but definitely worth the money.

    Heinkel He 111 wing markings

    According to some sources I've read the wing bars were on the same side as the rudder markings, which seems logical. The photo I have of A1 + DA shows the markings on the port side of the rudder, so that's what I've gone with. Anyway, it's too late now as the decals are finished, so if it turns out to be wrong I'll just have to live with it ! Anyhoo, thanks for taking the time to reply to my query .

    Heinkel He 111 wing markings

    Thanks for the info . . . I've already looked at that discussion, but thanks for youe help anyway, it's much appreciated. I think I'll go with bars on the port wing only so that would match with the rudder. If I find out later they were on both wings I can always add them later.

    Heinkel He 111 wing markings

    Hi guys, I'm decalling my 1/48 ICM Heinkel He 111H-3 at the moment, and according to their instructions the upper wing formation bars are on both wings, but I've only seen photos, pics, etc. which depict them on one wing only. The machine I'm modellng is A1 + DA from KG 53 during the Battle Of Britain : there is a photo of this machine which shows the vertical bars on the port side of the rudder, but unfortunately the rest of the upper surfaces are not visible. I'd be interested to know if anyone has any extra info on this, and whether the kit instructions are likely to be correct ?

    1/48 Trumpeter F-100D

    I built the F version of this kit some time ago and found it a pleasant build. I did buy a resin nose and a Eduard cockpit set, but otherwise it was a straightforward build. I love the F-100, and I shall follow your build with interest . . . looking good so far.
