  1. Some nose detail. What about the probe area that was criticised earlier ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WleNRwjmUY4
  2. Let’s have a look at it : https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235060672-148-amk-usn-vf-31-f-14d-super-tomcat-tomcatters/
  3. Hi ! Are you suddenly short of words or is your keyboard disabled ? It took me just 3 words to get the clue : F-14 Wing Bladder A space of time much shorter than you needed to write your question.
  4. 10 years back : http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/194502-vinyl-wing-bladders-for-the-f-14/&tab=comments See : http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/194502-vinyl-wing-bladders-for-the-f-14/&do=findComment&comment=1823398 http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/194502-vinyl-wing-bladders-for-the-f-14/&do=findComment&comment=1827558 There was even a prediction : http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/194502-vinyl-wing-bladders-for-the-f-14/&do=findComment&comment=1827678
  5. Hi there, I suppose no one could succeed in this query. Then, would any body having in his stash an A310 or A340 be able to over line a stab of these airplane together or beside an A300 stab (1/144th scale is convenient) on a sheet of paper, so we can compare their size. Thank you very much AV O
  6. Another one on the way to be completed. Only the engines are missing. B-767-300 Lauda Air : You can compare different aircraft sizes with these pictures showing an MRJ (1/200th FineMolds), next to a GE Nx for B-787 and the B-767 or the DC-8 (Doyusha).
  7. You may have a look at one here : http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/231458-hasegawa-1200th/&page=2&tab=comments#comment-2735131
  8. Again, many thanks to Scott for his helpful research for this document. There she is now waiting for a livery... If any one should use this diagram, please note that the drawing shows the real wing size, not a model kit wing itself as on a model, a part of the wing/body fairing is in some cases (here - Doyusha/Nitto 1/200- ) part of the fuselage. After reducing the drawing to scale, I used the trailing edge kink as a reference. Engines are BraZ. They lack the strakes. More 1/200th : http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/231458-hasegawa-1200th/
  9. A clue here : http://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1014173
  10. Hello, A few other things to be considered before choosing a brand or scale. It depends on the available space you have to stock the boxes before building the models, the space on your shelves or display cases to display them once they are built. (Think about the new An-225). And the size of your wallet if you intend to purchase top-of- the -range items. Then the details you want to give to your finished model, the time you can spend to your hobby (building the An-225 won't be as fast as a 1/400th B-747, not mentioning the amount of glue or paint !) You have also the choice of building one scale only models to keep an even collection, or different scales and displaying models of roughly the same size. Cheers. AV O
  11. I could not find another suitable decal, I decided to leave the same deco and carried on building it. Here she is, almost done, just missing the windshield and the wing engines. The tail decal suffered little damage. Wing engines on :

  13. Thank you very much indeed. Very helpful. The topic title doesn't really lead to a DC-8 query, does it ? AV O
  14. Hi, Concerning this kit, as it is a -61 series. (wingspan 142.4 ft - 43.4 m) Would anyone know how the wing is longer to get a -63 series (wingspan 148.4 ft - 45.2 m). Is it an insert before the tip, or an added part at the tip, making it longer and thinner ? A diagram showing the difference would be welcome. I did search for one but could not succeed. (As for the engine pylons shape if possible). Thank you . AV O
