  1. Wow! Didn't know they flew in all black. Very cool. May have a Spring project(among others) to do. Thanks for posting. Paul
  2. Thanks Gregair I'm looking at building a Hip that flew with the Sierra Leone Air Wing in the early 90's Paul
  3. Was wondering what color the blades are on a MI 17 Hip. Is there a standard or does it go by user or??? Thanks for any help. Paul
  4. Question for the chopper boffins. I'd like to build a MI8-MTV Hind. Is it possible?, is there a specific kit?, a conversion set? I've not done a helicopter and am quite enthusiastic to try. Any help is appreciated. Thanks Paul
  5. Genre: Early WWII pacific campaign(Dec 7/41-June 7/42), small wars/brushfire wars Scale 1/72 - 1/48 aircraft Build any manufacture that producer the subject I want.
  6. I had that kit back in 1967. I was 10 years old. I thought it was the coolest kit ever. I had my sisters husband help me build it because he built car models and painted them even so obviously he had superior talents. It's memory's like this that make me smile!! Paul
  7. Great discussion! Thank you all for the insights and honesty's. Hopefully this matter gets answered sooner than later. Thanks again Paul
  8. I've done some initial research and have not found anything bad said or implied about the Gripen. It's all been very positive and this is from several sources. As for cost I would assume the Gripen is approx 1/2 the cost of an F35. Let not fall into the "senior citizen trap" and make purchases on what the man at the door told us we needed. Big and flash is nice, but is it what we need or want to pay for??? My 2 cents worth. Thanks Paul
  9. I've thought that the F-35 would be the obvious choice for Canada. It new and modern, easily adaptable to our US ally, parts, maintenance, even airbases would be easily applied across borders. But I've had a change of heart. Whats everybody's opinion on the SAAB J39 Gripen E. I think this could be the winner if given a chance. Paul
  10. Turned out beautifully!! Large aircraft I would imagine. Whats the wing span??
  11. Just ordered "Dutch Naval Air force against Japan". I'm very interested in the early Pacific campaigns. Been looking at it for a while so hope it's as good as what I anticipate! Will let you know! Cheers Paul
  12. Great build. I'm curious as to how you make out with the MAV Decals. I have a set for a Katangan C47 that i have used yet. keep up the great work. Paul
  13. Thanks for the quick reply. First noticed the Vampire about July. I was at a Garden centre on HWY 24 and it was coming in to land. Very loud whine. Great to see though. Thanks again Paul
  14. In the Kitchener/Guelph/Cambridge, Southern Ontario area. I've seen a De Havilland Vampire and another small jet trainer flying past several times in the last few month. What's up with that?? Anyone now what their about?? Just curious. Thanks Paul
  15. Great subject choice! Love the Katangan /Congo era. Biafra as well! I've a couple of T6's in the stash to build in various African schemes. You've done an excellent job with yours. Don't hesitate to use your Zotz decals on another interesting subject such as you've done here. Cheers Paul
