    MPC 1/72 B 29

    Hi, I'm not a really into building planes and I got this kit off of Ebay for a friends son as a Christmas gift. Could you kind people help me on the lineage of this kit, Is it an Airfix? I know this was in the General Meals MPC era kit. How difficult is the build? I don't think they will paint it but will build it as a family project. greg

    cockpit 360's

    While reading about the move of the XB 70 to it's new home in Wright Pat's museum another person posted links to this site. My apology if this has been posted before, looks like it is a great reference site http://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/Visit/VirtualTour/Cockpit360.aspx greg
  13. I built this years ago for a customer straight from the box. I do not claim to be a plane modeler, expert or pilot as I have stated before, it has to have 4 or more wheels and usually red and has lights and a siren! This was a change for me. Humbrol paints airbrushed and bare metal foil for tail portions. Built with generic markings as I believe it was marked later as a gift to someone the customer knew. greg

    Demilitarising the 1/24 Huey

    Here's a few https://www.pinterest.com/pin/6896205654184470/ http://ink361.com/app/users/ig-1756342272/lacountyfd/photos/ig-1005225003234591757_1756342272 I believe Season 6 episode 20 "Isolation" has a UH 1 in scene greg

    Demilitarising the 1/24 Huey

    The description on the web page lists a rotor diameter of: Rotor Diameter : 43 ft 3 in and they state former military and list them as UH 1 but picture has them as 204's which I don't understand. greg

    Demilitarising the 1/24 Huey

    My guess would be the removal of the ammo box under the rear seat, filling the feed holes and mounts for the armament, The web site for the helo company says they are former military so the pilots seats should be ok since the original model did not have armored seats, the back must have a rear facing seat as the specs from the web site say 10 passenger. I just gave mine a civilian paint scheme greg
  17. I am not up on the model nomenclature, but I have a lower 40 back burner project older than some of the modelers here that I stretched one of the kits and was going to end up with the longer version. I recently revived this project and looking at a 412 it might be just easier to go all the way to that model. Does anyone have dimensions of the superstructure around the engines and the rotor fairing? I think it would be a real challenge and it would be a great piece in my collection, Has any one every modified this kit? greg
