    1/144 Roden C-133 - For Sale on eBay

    If you do them, PLEASE do not have Cartograf match the FS595 exactly. Your EC-121 decals are useless. The Insignia Blue is black and the Insignia Red is deep maroon. Scale color effect is a real thing.

    No, there were only 50 C-133s built and they all wore MATS/MAC colors. They pretty much all looked alike except for the wing badges.

    Best Luftwaffe references?

    There have probably been as many books published on the Bf109 as there were Bf109s built.
  4. Have you seen this? The instruction book is 59 pages long! http://fundekals.com/spitfiresPart2.html

    I have a tracking number for mine and it’s currently on its way to me.

    The cross sections are all circular regardless of whether it is curved in side view or not, so that’s irrelevant. I’ve put a 5’ piece of aluminum bar against the aft end of a T-33 and it is *not* a compound curve. The aft end is three intersecting cones. You can feel the change of angle with your hand where they intersect.

    Actually it isn't. The real thing is three intersecting cones with no curve. I've put a straight edge on the real article. GWH is the first ones to get that right.

    Care to enlighten us on those areas? That’s the first mention I’ve heard of either.
  9. Long time lurker, first time poster on ARC. I bought the HpH MiG-23BN conversion set, but unfortunately they missed two of the main ID features of the MiG-23BN - the bullet shaped Delta-MN pod under the right wing glove, and the seriously bulged nose gear doors to accommodate the bigger nose wheels. Any chance you might be interested in doing them?
