  1. I was just browsing thru the Sprue Brothers website and I came across a new company selling 1/24 scale kits of WWI aircraft. They currently list a Spad, SE-5A and a Fokker DR-1. Is anyone familiar with these kits? I'm wondering if they're any good. Nice large scale.
  2. Can someone recommend a good first airbrush that won't break the bank but still be capable of good results once I learn how to use it properly? I had an airbrush long ago but after several moves, I have no idea what became of it. I'm an aircraft modeler and I'm thinking about going back into plastic modeling. Currently, I build and fly R/C sailplanes and an airbrush could be useful for touching up repairs but my primary interest is for plastic scale models. Suggestions are very welcome. Things to look out for are especially welcome.
  3. Some of you may note that one subject we had previously hinted at producing, a 1:32 Curtiss P6-E is missing from this list. We had indeed planned to release this kit, but it would have been in resin. An injected plastic kit manufacturer was kind enough to contact us about this subject, and expressed their desire to release an injected plastic kit of this subject I don't suppose you would be at liberty to disclose the company bringing out this kit?
  4. How about this: http://www.amazon.com/U-S-S-Worlds-Largest-Airship-Lighter-than-Air-Center/dp/B001AYOMM2/ref=sr_1_6?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1310422602&sr=1-6 I haven't seen it, but it looks like it would give you the info you want.
  5. I would think it would most likely be an E.III but I can't think of any way I could prove it.

    Oh, I don't know about that. I think it falls into the category of so ugly its cute! I just kinda like the looks of the cowled radial tail dragger Yak 18.

    Nice artwork. Could you show an enlargement of the insignia on the tail please? I'm not familiar with it.
  9. Funny, I always hankered to take a Monogram 180 and a 1/48 L-19 and make an OE-2. Never got around to it, tho.
  10. Are they keeping the original tail? If they do, it will look more like a 180 than a 170!
  11. It looks like a Consolidated PT-3, a fore-runner of the Kinner powered Fleet trainers. Unlike the Fleets, the PT-3 had 4 ailerons.
  12. Those ARE great pictures. What focal length lense was used? Digital or film camera?
