  1. Encountered the same crew at HyperScale replying to my post. Same set up, contact the "Friend" that has the items. It smelled sketchy from the start and when I checked the IP address it was showing up being located in Central Africa. Nope, Nope, Nope!
  2. Looks like a nice step up from the old Mach2 kit. A shame it is not in 1/48th scale.
  3. An explanation has been provided courtesy of another modeler via the HyperScale Plane Talking Forum that has built the Tarangus Lansen and is much more knowledgeable on the subject: [quote]Those are shields to deflect cartridge casings away from the belly tank. You're right, they're not in the instructions but they are visible in the marking and painting profiles.[/quote] Link to thread: Tarangus 1/48th scale A32 and J32 Lansen mystery parts.

  5. In both kits there are two oddly shaped parts numbered "16" and "17" which are not called out for use in the instructions. Does anyone know what these vaguely trapezoidal shaped parts are for? My first thought that it was intended to extend the height of the vertical stabilizer as an extension of the extant fin cap but that turned out to be a dead end as it lacks the length and width for that purpose. I have gone through both instruction sheets carefully page by page to the point that my eyes are now watering. This was also posted to the General Discussion forum t

  7. Bump back to the top. Has anyone built any of the kits I mentioned as clean aircraft with no stores attached under the wings and fuselage? I am more than willing to trade for the bits and pieces or purchase from anyone that has these to spare. Not looking for handouts unless you are pheeling philanthropic.
  8. I would like to relieve you of these three kits: Hasegawa AU-1 Corsair S/I $35 F4U-5 Corsair (2 available) S/I $20
  9. Bump. Airfix Valiant part has been acquired. Refined parts request to what is stated in OP title. Thank you Bill P. for providing the Valiant Clear part!
