    A-20 Havoc/Boston Question

    Good reference! That will be helpful, assuming the kit dimensions are correct. That took some serious digging! That looks like a great website with resources for all kinds of subjects. Thanks!

    A-20 Havoc/Boston Question

    Thanks! We're all smarter for that. I will make a note of that in my kit instructions and make certain that I do it.

    A-20 Havoc/Boston Question

    Indeed, that MMP article may be the source. IIRC the problem was noted early on when the kit was initially issued back in the mid-90s when MMP was being published. Now, does anyone have a copy of said magazine?

    MiG 25 A$$ End

    How much, if any, difference is there between the exhaust nozzles on a MiG 25 RB and a PD? Mongo

    A-20 Havoc/Boston Question

    Yeah, that's my recollection as well..., abut a quarter inch forward. I'm still trying to find that reference.

    A-20 Havoc/Boston Question

    I remember there once was some discussion of the old AMT 1/48 A-20 series of kits that the main landing gear was mis-located in the wheel-well/nacelle. IIRC, It needs to be re-located forward a bit. Can anyone speak to the veracity of that? Mongo

    F-14 Decals

    I know this isn't exactly the right forum for this topic, but I'm trying to get the widest appropriate audience... I won a Hasegawa 1/72 F-14A kit in a raffle. It came with neither instructions or decals. The kit is their "Pacific Squadrons" release with a VF-111 Sundowners jet on the box art. If you have the unused kit sheet I'd like to cut a deal for it. Otherwise, I would entertain the idea of an aftermarket decal set for suitable aircraft from VF-84, VF-111 or whatever others were in the kit. E-mail direct to mongo01 -at- twc.com. TIA.

    Seeking Do 217N-1 Image

    Greetings; I'm double-posting this message to get maximum exposure, sorry if you saw it already in Research... I am trying to finish a model of a Do 217N-1 in 1/48 using the Koster conversion applied to the Pro Modeler kit. I found some aftermarket decals (AIMSDecals 48D022) that has a suitable paint scheme. The decal instruction refer to a photo in a book: Nachtjager Vol. 1 (Williams, Classic Colours) page 73. The Do 217N-1 is coded D5+SM. Does anyone have a copy of this book? If so, can you scan the image and e-mail it to me? Thanks for any help you can offer. Mongo

    P-51D Seats

    I am building a Czech Model 1/48 T-34C. The kit seats are nice but bear little resemblance to T-34 seats. The T-34 seats actually are more like P-51D/K seats (although T-34 seats have a bottom cushion and the back is bare to accommodate a back-style parachute which is the reverse of the Mustang seats..., but I digress). I need two seats from Hasegawa 1/48 P-51D/K kits. Did you replace your Hasegawa P-51 cockpit with a resin set? Are you left with a bunch of P-51 cockpit parts and nothing to do with them? I'll take the seats off your hands. Please e-mail me direct: mongo01 -at- twc.com and let's make a deal! Thanks. Mongo

    Steel Photoetched Seatbelts

    Thanks for your insight!
  15. I have noticed that the newer sets of photo-etched seatbelts released by Eduard are advertised as steel. I assume all the earlier releases were the customary brass. Is there a difference in finishing or working with steel versus brass? Is one easier to work with? Does one take a set and stay draped better that the other? Mongo
