  1. Here’s one of the original threads
  2. Jet Provost Mk1, reminds me of Crazylegs Crane from the Pink Panther show.
  3. Personally I would wait until the guy in Mexico pays for kit and shipping before contacting the Ebay buyer, then explain.
  4. A ship is a ship and needs to be structurally sound regardless of whether it’s a training ship or a deployable asset. Looking at various photographs coming out of the ship, I cannot see the BR setting sail again. The damage to the ships systems alone will outweigh any economical repair, and it would probably be cheaper to build a straight replacement.
  5. Looks like it’s stolen a couple of CFT’s off a F-16.
  6. The error is easily seen on finished builds which have a Matt finish. Also if the problem wasn’t there, then why would Raymond admit to correcting the error on the TF and A/C mouldings?
  7. I would imagine that the vertical pipe is some sort of vent, another wise the bladders would create a vacuum as they emptied.
  8. Also be aware that the undercarriage, the inside of undercarriage doors along with air brake wells etc... will be gloss finish, whilst the main airframe will be matt.
  9. What version of the Mirage F1 are you planning?
  10. Do you think it could be an option to redo the G fuselage on it's own, at the same time as you start to produce the A/C version. Even if it was sold separately from the kit itself and involved extra cost to the buyer, I for one wouldn't mind paying to get the correct shaped parts. I don't know how much it would cost to tool a corrected mould so it might be a non starter. Do you have any plans to redo the F-5A/B in the future?
  11. 1/ Can you please clarify 2/ You don't think the largest part of the kit the fuselage, is equally important if not more so. You'll find that with most kits the areas you have mentioned are more often than not corrected by means of aftermarket items, your own Mirage2K-5 being one with wrong radome and exhaust which has been addressed by KASL. I cannot think for a minute that any AM producer will market a correct shaped fuselage to rectify the G's shirt comings and any modification to correct the shape by 99%of modellers(including me) would be a non starter. I don't know if I've read the last part wrong, but why would you pass the CADs to someone "who has no idea about it"? 3/ Good to hear, I've found that most of the problems I have building Kinetic kits is that they are over engineered, were a more simplified approach would be most welcome, the F-5A being one.
  12. They weren’t day-glo, it was more of a Peach colour.
  13. The Euro1 scheme was used on USAF Phantoms ie: C D E G and RF. The EJ was used by JASDF and never wore Euro1. The JASDF did have a two Green /Grey scheme of their own with Lt Grey undersides.
  14. Yes but unfortunately the G version which I would imagine will be the most popular out of all the possible variants, will not be getting rectified. Despite what some say it is not an easy fix.
