  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. What on Earth have they done to Squadron Green Putty??? I've just opened a new tube of the stuff, first one in the new/latest packaging and half the contents have just poured out all over the place. What remains looks like the result of nasal congestion. I've looked on line and it seems that this is a new improved formula, really?? Why on Earth do companies feel the need to alter a product that has proved itself for over 20 yrs with something that is far less superior.
  8. Have I missed something here, I wasn’t aware of any 1/48 MH-47 kit out there? I hope I’m wrong as I want to build a CH-47SD and need the large sponsons.
  9. Thank you very much, I’ll drop them an email next week.
  10. Does anyone know if Kitty Hawk provide a service where you can purchase individual sprues from their kits? TIA
  11. Hi all, Wondering if anyone out there has the Kitty Hawk 1/48 UH-1N and will not be using the parts to build the SAFIRE FLIR turret? If so would you be willing to part with them for a small fee, I’ll cover postage costs to the UK. TIA Scott
  12. Hi all, I seem to recall that there was company thinking of making aftermarket sponsons for the CH-47SD. Is there any further updates on this? Scott
  13. It's a Thomson TMV-018 Syrel ELINT pod.
  14. I've noticed that on later built a/c that the RAM tape isn't as obvious as on the earlier aircraft. Here's a link to a recently delivered Vermont ANG a/c and there's no colour difference between the tape and surrounding areas. Hope it's ok to post the link if not I'll remove it.

  15. Where does the Mirage 2000-5 stand after the move onto the new injection process, are there plans to re release the kit, as I’m still waiting for a replacement for the grossly inferior/defective kit I was sold.
