  1. Here is one with no restraints thru the head rest and the color scheme you are doing....and the opposite example...
  2. Most of the pics I have seen show the seat with the restraints thru the headrest, I would hazard (with no official backup) that the other type of seat would have been prior unification (1967). But I guess it is possible that some have linguered longer. Even my model above does not have the right seat, I was too lazy/not talented enough to modify the resin seat I used....
  3. $50 Cdn for a Canmilair 1-32, and no stencils to speak of.
  4. I would think it is definitely a niche market, and we should be thankful that Leading Edge and Canuck spoiled us over the years. Canuck is still around, but has other priorities right now, related to putting bread on the table... I am glad Caracal did the Hawk special scheme last year, Canuck was supposed to do it, but like I said above... I appreciate Caracal's willingness to come forward for us, so lets send him those references...
  5. How about the Hobby Boss T Mk100/102 will that do for an RCAF machine ? http://www.ebay.ca/itm/401098108375?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    You should really get in touch with Philipe Collin, he is a great photogrpaher and the "squadron historian" Here is is Flickr Page: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mephisto3/ and his Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Mephisto53?fref=ts
  9. Very nice. I am planning the exact same build and color scheme ! Those PT6s can really dirty up a nice looking aircraft...
  10. Andrew, Where did you buy the Wolfpak decals, I tried Lucky and Sprue Bros. and they did not stock them. If I could easily get a replacement I would change it. This aircraft means something to you, it deserves your best efffort ! I grew up, and still live, just 25 miles north of the border close to Burlington, by the time I went to airshows, the F-102s were long gone... They have an airshow this year over Lake Champlain, hope we get a sneak peak at their future resident, F-35 !
  11. Wrong business model, never adjusted to the new reality of the model industry. I used to get their flyer and catalog about 20 years ago, when they were king, have not bought a thing from them since.
  12. So I ordered a decal set and 3 resin items and used their New Lower Cost International Shipping Option for Small Parcels to Canada, here is what happened: One day after I ordered I got a UPS Mail Innovations email with a link to track my package, I was able to track it using this link until it was handed off to Canadian Customs, it was not updated after that. Package showed up in my mail box with Canada Post Sticker on it (one week later), No UPS brokerage fees or Canada Post Customs fees. I'm a happy customer that will put Sprue Brothers back on my list !
  13. Thanks, glad you liked the article ! Cant wait to see the GWH kit now .
  14. Great, cant wait to see some pics of the models..
  15. Was this just a vendors thing or was there an actual model contest going on ??
  16. Great model !. I did not know about this model company, I checked them out, they actually have an Avro Jetliner !!!
  17. Really, a resin set to 'convert' to a canadian machine !! You are seriously overestimating the differences...
  18. I like it a lot... More pics please where we can see the Blacknight badge !
  19. Well she is done, missing a few items like mirrors and pitot, nothing that cant wait the day before the contest... :rolleyes:/>
