    Exactly. People with no lives other than sitting at their computers.

    Initial Impressions, Tamiya 1/48 Spit Mk I kit

    Jeremy Kinney of the NASM has a new book out about constant speed props, and I was surprised to learn that DH implemented a crash program to convert the two position props into governed constant speed props just prior to the beginning of the Battle of Britain, and that it made a huge difference to the outcome of the battle.

    Only option to give news of a sort

    MiG-25s aren’t P-51s or Bf109s

    Educate me on all things 1/72 EC-121. Starting point?

    The Fisher stuff is gone for good I’m afraid. All of the masters went up in flames.

    FWIW, the three-bladed prop is not a Jablo. It’s a de Havilland two-position variable pitch prop. Jablo props came in with the Mk.V.
  7. The AFV kit is a mess. I haven’t bothered to look at the wings, but the entire fuselage is a complete mess. It might possibly be worth buying one to rob the detail parts out of, but I’m sticking with the Hawk kit.

    I can’t imagine AMK sinking money into a MiG-25 at this late date. If they had done it three or four years ago they would have owned the market. But ICM’s kit is too nice, and with the exception of the MiG-25P, they have either produced or announced every version of the single seaters.

    Proposal for Steve Bamford.........

    I have no idea who any of the people you are talking about are. Never met any of them, but I did a search on the name, and I do not see anything that indicated to me that anybody deserved to be banned. Seems pretty juvenile to me.

    USAF F-84G in camo scheme

    That is likely to be an aircraft on its way to Yugoslavia, with temporary USAF markings. I have never seen or heard of a camouflaged F-84G in anything besides the NATO standard Dark Green and Dark Sea Grey camouflage with PRU Blue below. That’s undoubtedly what this photo shows, but the color is horribly shifted in the original slide or negative.

    Special Hobby claims to be working on one (eventually)

    George Welch's P-40

    I don’t think any photos of the two famous P-40s from 12/7/41 are known to exist. We know the side numbers from their log books.
