    I tried to start one, but got tried of fiddling with it to get it to sit in the right place. May have to go back to it if I can find the kit and the cockpit


    Heya Ray,


    Yeah cannot disagree with it being fiddly to mess around with, I've had a couple of days break from it, but now back at it.... got some time on my hands at the moment.


    Glynn, wish you all the best with your build

    I have the Aires set and a Prowler, but in the stash.


    Like I said earlier, Aires cockpits are a bit notorious for being a tad oversized, so they'll need thinning to fit. They do look great though!


    Hi pollie.

    Yeah that i did worked out pretty quickly! 

    I was just throwing the question out to see if anyone has built it as yet?  I definitely agree with you that they look great.

  3. Today the southern NSW and northern Victoria fires joined up creating about a 600,000 hectare fire.


    As an Aussie,  I cannot express a bigger enough thanks to the Canadian, US and Kiwi firefighter teams coming over helping us out.  





    I work at one of the Avalon where both Coulson C-130's and Conair RJ85 tankers are based,  this photo was taken on early Monday morning, the smoke haze was a combination of the fires  in both states. 



  4. Good evening All.

    Most Probably a long shot here, I received a Hasegawa Neppy  for Christmas, and have intention to build it with Bombay open. I know that Eduard prduced a PE set for  it has been discontinued for quite a while ( at least 17 yrs)


    I was wondering if anyone had purchased  this set?  If so would anyone be able to scan a copy of the PE set as I would like to create the bombay in plastic card.


    Cheers & TIA.

    Make Vintage fighters great again.


    Australian Hornets already have NVIS external lighting, So why does it need replacing?


    What is the difference in the landing gear?  I am to assume that it be heavier brakes due to the fact that they will be operating in a  subzero temp environment rather than an Aussie winter.

    Pretty sure the A330 tanker is fully compatible with US aircraft.  Thought I just saw a picture of it refueling some F-22's. 



    Yep the F-22 refueling trials were conducted in August & Sept 2018  successfully.

    ”And the US would have a new tanker in service now, If Airbus had gotten the contract for it ”


    Oh, puuuuuuuleeeeeeeeeeeeze.  How's that A400M doing?  How hard was it to copy an upscaled C-130?


    Airbus is not the standard I'd raise.




    Australia went down that path and besides the OT&E issue with the boom falling off that one time, We've have had no operational issues at all.  Hey at least we have a new tankers.


    But this is not the thread to hijack.  Lets get back to the F-35

    LOL   The AF tanker program is probably as worthy of a years long, thousand post thread as the F-35 is.  


    You're definitely right there,,


    And the US would have a new tanker in service now, If Airbus had gotten the contract for it 

  9. Hi Guy's.


    Tomorrow is the last day for final submissons into the GB. 


    Sorry I haven't been an active member of the group. I have had some personal issues to deal with the last 5 months  which has severely hampered my love for building, but I am on the mend.


    I would like to take a moment to thank all of you that have participated and have completed builds, it has been a pleasure to be able to host this GB. Please continue to complete and share your builds even after the GB has finished.




  10. Hi Spectre,


    Not much as I have hoped for unfortunately. This stupid thing called work gets in the way.....  How inconsiderate of Pilots to break the aircraft that they Fly:whistle:.


    So I have got the  it on its gear and have managed to get the white down to start the painstaking task of making the squares for the chequered markings. There won't be any modeling sone this weekend as I am about to attend a conference over the weekend.
