  1. I didn’t know anyone did decals for the Pave Low in 1/48, or have I got the wrong end of the stick on that?
  2. A tinted canopy would be the obvious, well it would be for me😉
  3. Thanks for the information, pressing on with my Revell 1/48 conversion.
  4. Hi, A quick couple of questions regarding the MH-53 Pavelow. The cockpit upper glazing colour, is it smoke or dark green? Or is it something else? Secondly, the support struts fitted from the upper airframe to the sponsons, I see pictures with and without, any reason when they came in and why (apart from the obvious, to support the sponsons) Cheers in advance.
  5. You have a very nice looking Tomcat, well done to you.
  6. And this is a link to my finished build. I ended up printing the pod. Apologies but I can’t for the life of me load photos on this forum so here’s a link to BM.. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235070165-132-trumpeter-fa-18f/
  7. Sorry for the delay but I can send you these two parts from my kit. I’m in the UK. PM me your address and I’ll get them in the post ASAP.
  8. Hi Guys, Can anyone tell me if someone makes one of these in 1/32? I have a link to the Cobham site data sheet to show what I’m looking for. f
  9. Wow, outstanding. I’ve just finished my 1/32 Intruder Tanker conversion, loved the whole build. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235068244-132-trumpeter-intruder-ka-6d-conversion/ A great way to show both models, the basket is just awesome. Well done sir.
  10. The Camo one is a Mk2, a troop carrier for the RAF. The sonar fitted Wessex looked like this. https://nelsam.org.uk/Exhibits/Search/?search=XM833 https://abpic.co.uk/pictures/model/Westland Wessex HAS3 https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234953439-westland-wessex-has3-xm328/
  11. Oliver, I don’t wish to tell anyone how to build their models, you build what you want my friend. I will say though, the sonar set your elegantly building was installed to the Royal Navy Wessex Mk3. The Green Wessex picture with the engines and electrical bay open is a Wessex Mk5 of the Royal Navy, used for troop transport and not with a sonar installed (it’s also missing an engine starter shroud on the nearest engine, just sayin as an ex Navy Wessex Engineer) The last photo you’ve posted is of a Royal Air Force Wessex Mk2 of 72 Squadron, again it never had the sonar installed.
  12. A loss to the aftermarket but this is a hobby and family should alway’s come first. I have enjoyed using your resin to convert the models I’ve built, great subjects. Thanks for your contribution to this hobby of ours.
  13. Still waiting for the Wessex 3 to appear.
  14. Hi Darren, Yes I did. I wanted to do something a little different from a bombed-up Intruder so your set provided me with the opportunity. I am using the Avionix cockpit with your panel’s, the decal sheet from AOA 32-023 and I plan to change the centre line tank with the deployable basket tank from SAC. Thanks to all who answered my question, I know you guys know your stuff. Cheers Ian.
  15. Hi, I’m building the 1/32 Intruder and am making a KA-6E of VA-65 embarked on US Independence 1974/75. My question is, did the Intruder have the strip Formation lights fitted, as depicted on the Trumpeter kit? I’m seeing conflicting pictures on the web and would like to make sure I’m getting the correct era aircraft. Thanks in advance. Ian.
