  1. I’m confused as to what a “Have Glass” canopy actually is? HG is more or less a radar reflecting paint, why would the canopy be covered in it? Are you by anyway referring to an iridescent canopy, where the colour seems to replicate a spectrum depending on the angle you look at it from?
  2. 501-109 is now referred to as FS*6480, although off the top of my head there is no currently producer of this either. FS*6473 is a good starting point though.
  3. It’s a drawing so why would it be photoshopped?

    Yip all ads have now disappeared, thanks for taking the time to sort this out. Have a great Christmas Steve.

    Just looking at the site on the laptop for the first time since these ads appeared in their current guise , and it's really really annoying. I've got ads appearing between every post, although the drop down one that I get on the I Phone and I Pad isn't there.

    I’m still getting the embedded ads between posts and the very annoying drop down ad at the top of the page every time I scroll. I know it costs money to run a site like this and ads are a source of revenue but if a members fee is all that’s required to rid the site of these , I’m happy with that(within reason). Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2020 to all on ARC.

    Getting the same here in the UK, started on Saturday morning. Very very annoying to say the least, somewhat takes away what ARC was/is all about. Can this intrusion be stopped?
  8. Sure hope they put some effort into this one, and hopefully we’ll see the big sponson versions at some stage.
  9. It’s pretty grimy in there so it’s hard to tell between Light Grey or White in photos.
  10. Thanks for the replies, think I'll try Italeri's OH-58D in 1/48 with the Blackdog AM, before tackling Kitty Hawks Z9 done up as a AS365N3 Aegean Dolphin.
  11. Ioannis, I may have the part you require in my spares box. I know I definitely have an Aires F-16 nozzle but can’t remember if it’s a GE or PW. I check later tonight when I get home from work. You’re welcome to it.
  12. Seems like Squadron for whatever reason have made a few bad decisions of late. I've been told the formula has changed yet again(in the last few months) due to the widely reported problems of the putty separating itself inside the tube, is this true? I've also now just found out that Squadron Green is no longer imported to the UK in any form and it's only White and Grey that are available. I can't think of anything worse than Grey putty on Grey styrene
  13. I would as they've sold a product that is unusable and not fit for purpose. I can't send mine back but I'm certainly going to send an email explaining my frustrations and disappointment.
  14. Thanks for the link Dom. Happy Modelling..... not so much these days as it just gets harder and harder to find the materials that I've been using for over 30 yrs. Then the added problem of crap kits etc etc........ binned my second Kinetic kit of the year(F-5A and Mirage 2K5), today as both were just unbuildable and not worth the hassle, time, effort and extra materials required. I haven't finished any builds this year as the two Kinetic kits have totally sapped any motivation from me, however start afresh in the New Year. Not surprised that the hobby is dying
  15. Late to the party here, but found out earlier tonight how crap Squadron Green now is, with the exact same problem as the OP. 😡 Please Squadron if you can please go back to the original formula Looks like my modelling days are numbered as I can't seem to get any of the materials that I've been using for the past 30 yrs, enamel paints and thinners are getting harder to find by the day and when you do find it the postage costs are so extreme you'd think it was Enriched Plutonium you were buying.
