  1. Now all that’s needed is the U.K. importer to pull their fingers out and get them over here, just saying.
  2. Hi, this is a long shot but does anyone have this sheet, or part sheet they’d like to part with? https://www.dacoproducts.com/ Ive tried contacting them direct but they seem off the grid, so a plea for help in finding this sheet. Thanks in advance for your help.
  3. It seem’s weird to me that weighted wheels, white metal u/c and a small colour cockpit etch is ‘extra’.
  4. 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?
  5. A tinted canopy would be the obvious, well it would be for me😉
  6. Thanks for the information, pressing on with my Revell 1/48 conversion.
  7. 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.
  8. You have a very nice looking Tomcat, well done to you.
  9. 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/
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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/
  14. 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.
