  1. Great info, thanks. I need to ask about the tail stabilators. I would like to start a Kurnass and she will be an Early, with short gun fairing, hard wing, from Bats Sqn. in YKW, 1973. What about the stabs? I'm arguing that all the Kurnass were delivered with slatted stabs. It's correct? Or the earlies were also delivered with "flat leading edge", unslatted ones? Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi all, working wit a lot of French Air Force colleaugues, I'm starting to consider the possibility to have a Mirage 2000N in my showcase. And I would prefer the Italeri/Kinetic kit, rather than the old Heller/Eduard. Is it possible? What are the requested modifications and aftermaket accessiories available, especially as decals? ...my preference goes for an operational bird, more than for a special scheme. Many thanks!
  3. With all the respect for KASL, I need a Tomcat with a flap/slats down wing, as I need a toe-hole in the sock! :-)
  4. Great thread! Then, to sum up, in order to build-up a VF-1 bird with the tan radome, but with standard tail provvided in the Tamiya kit (I'm not too confidend in my surgery skills), I've find out that is possible to select Bu.No. 159858 F-14A-90-GR NE112 in dec-78. Any other choice, as far as you know? Thanks!
  5. Thanks a lot you all for the very interesting replies and suggestions! :-)
  6. It was the solution I was thinking of, scotthldr. Thanks. But I'm not too confident that the decal will accept a mask, even if well protected, without cracking. Or, at least, I'm serching for a solution to not run that risk. Since I have just one decal sheet and generally, I'm not that lucky in modelling! :-) To ruin the small wolf head in the nose would be a nightmare to recover. Yours will be my B plan. Still looking for something less at heart attack risk!
  7. Hi all. Is there someone that has info on how long exactly was the tan part from the tip of the radome? Or tricks on how to mask it properly? I don't know if at that time there were relevant Navy standard rules for radomes paint.. My Cat will be a block-80 early VF-1, then I need to know exactly where the tan begins, because of the red VF-1 stripe point. Any help appreciated!
  8. A new tool MiG-31, a new Tomcat.... I'm standing on my job desk, cheering. My boss is wondering if I'm drunk... God (or whoever you prefer) bless you, AMK!!
  9. As far as I ever known, in Gunze acrilic range, RAF Barley Grey is H334. While H22 is a close match for RAF Admiralty Grey. My two cents. Cheers
  10. Thank you so much guys! To all of you. Frank, Rob, Koen.... Look forward to see you there. :)
  11. Hi Rob. Thank you so much for all those useful info! Looks that I can find there all the consumables I could need. I strongly hope to join the IPMS-NL, and to know you in person once there. Kind regards Paolo
  12. My wallet is running to hide! Can't find it!!
  13. Hi all. Find this thread very useful. I'm planning to move in Eindhoven from next summer, for 3/4 years. Then, I will bring all my modeling hardware there, since I will have plenty of time for modeling, I guess. Taken for granted that I already have too much kits, what I will need will be the consumables. Paints (Gunze and Tamiya), thinners, glue, tools, hardware... Will I find that kind of stuff at Flash Aviation? Or there is another shop in the area, where to look for? I strongly hope to not be forced to go everytime to Aviation Megastore, for two or three bottles of paint. Or to b
  14. Hi all. As title says, I need hi-vis stencils set for a Viking. Best would be a spare Aeromaster 148-028. But I'm open to alternatives. Can someone helps? Please reply via pm. Many thanks! Paolo - Italia
  15. Absolutely a fine job and a steady hand, my friend!! My sincere compliments. I'll follow carefully.... Ciao Paolo
  16. Some european ebayers have the kit available. Ordered a couple from Modelbau ebay shop, for 45€ each + shipping.
  17. Absolutely good model! Right click and Save As, for future reference. I've the same kit in my stash. My sincere compliments to you and your collegue, Nazar! Paolo
  18. Thank you both for all the infos you gave me. I've just bought the Isra book. And thanks Kurnass77 for your offer to give a look at your copy. I will refer to a specific photo as reference for my Baz. Regards! Paolo
  19. Hi all, apologize if this matter has been already discussed. Even if I remember to have read a topic in the past, I didn't find details, doing a search. I'm gathering infos in perspective to build a Israeli Baz. My choice would be a two seater, starting from Hasegawa F-15E I'm aware that instrument panels of Improved Baz's differs a lot from the original configuration. My question: is there any detail/update set for instrument panels relevant Improved Baz's? Looks like no one of main aftermarket producers (resin or photoetch) have something useful in their catalogue. Then, I'm wond
  20. Ciao Vincenzo! Good to see some update. Lovely paint job and astonishing cockpit! May I ask why you are proceeding keeping the front part of the intake still unglued? There is some advantage? (wondering if I must do the same on the ANG F-16 I've currently on my desk.... ) Hoping to see you soon. Paolo
