  1. C2J, FIrst off, thank you kindly for taking the time to give this excellent response. The way it's looking is that this cowl was either on, or off. Okay, as such I'll be building this kit with the cowl securely on. Thanks kindly! Mark.
  2. Hello everyone, I've posted questions about the Vega in a number of places online and have spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to find the answer. I'm hoping someone here can help. With regards to the engine cowl on the Lockheed Vega 5B (specifically Amelia Earharts Vega), does anyone have any pictures, diagrams or design sketches of what the cowl was attached to at the top/bottom when opened up? I'm not so much worried about the R-1340 underneath, or anything to do with the engine, engine mount, etc., but very specifically how the cowl itself was attached. The
  3. There are parts I need but I can happily send you those I'm not going to use (like the instrument panel and other components). PM me if interested.
  4. Gents, all, and I mean ALL my physical reference material (that book, numerous other books) are all at home in Nova Scotia and I haven't had a chance to get them shipped out to me in Ottawa, which is why I'm without this information. On the plus side, talking with the museum in hopes of getting much more up close and personal with the nose than the general public. Thanks a million, Cheers, Mark.
  5. Hello all. As things are still happening with my family in Ottawa and I'm here on a temp move there won't be many updates for the Viper for a while unfortunately. I decided that I'd rather move kits with me that weren't started (like the long awaited Avro Arrow project), and I didn't want to risk damaging the parts of this build in a move half way across the country. Meanwhile, I'm going through the fun times of moving all these pictures from Photobucket to another server as I'm sick and tired of PB dropping off. Anyway, merry Christmas and happy holidays to
  6. Evening everyone. I'm wondering if anyone has the correct nose-cone profile drawing of the Mk.II Arrow - or effectively RL-206, that would make for a good comparison/guide for the 1/48 HC kit. I'm working overtime here while in the capital to build up as much info on the Mk.II to build an accurate representation of RL-206, but understandably they don't want to let me at it with a measuring tape, lol. What's the worst that'll happen, right? Thanks in advance for any and all help, Mark.
  7. Yeah, to be back in 1934, right? So, 1/48 is the largest scale aside from paper models and wooden models... mind you in the RC world, the only sizes that lend themselves to being accurately shaped are far too big for the shelf. 1/32 and 1/24 would have been great.
  8. Hello all. Trying my hand at building up Amelia Earhart's Vega. I'm looking for reference images (plans, diagrams, pictures) of the engine area without the cowling. The Winnie Mae cutaway helps a bit but the setup as far as I can tell was different on the AE Vega. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers. Mark.
  9. Hello all. I've got my grubby little hands on the 1/48 AMT Lockheed Vega. Curiosity has me right now in its grips in looking for a larger scale version of the Vega, but surprisingly the internet has turned up a lot of nothing. Does anyone out there reading this know of a Vac Form kit of the Vega in either 1/32 or 1/24? Thanks kindly! Mark.
  10. Sean, Long time no talk! I hope things are going well for you. Thanks for the tip. I've emailed them with fingers crossed (as the last two times I sent them a message they were out). Wish me luck! Mark.
  11. Loooooooong shot but I can always hope, right? Folks, I'm looking for either the Canuvk or Arrow Graphics decals for a 1/48 Avro Arrow. More specifically I'm looking for the placards and stencils for the aircraft. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Mark.
  12. Good Morning, A short message from Switzerland just to say...CONGRATULATIONS about the CP-140 Aurora...

    By hoping you will continue this one or like you said on 3D printing...

    I'm a P3-C Orion fan…Just one more question...where did you find the drawing...on the flight manuel.?

    Impatient to see the future CP-140 Aurora 3D model….good luck

  13. Brett they had a large selection and quantity still. The shop is Hobby House Ltd. in Ottawa. PM me if you want contact info or particular paints. Vern, thank you kindly for that! That will definitely come in handy when I'm back home looking for paints. Mark.
