  1. Hi, It's not too late. I believe the aircraft in the photo at the top of the article has the Sniper pod in its usual location (like on your model) and the Dragon's Eye pod on the centerline pylon. So, when it becomes available, you could add it to the centerline. Cheers, Stefan.
  2. Hi, Everything I've seen from your Thunderbolts was totally awesome. I'd love to see them when they're finished. I think we can still post pictures in our threads even when the GB has been moved to Archived Group Builds. That's what I plan on doing with my Mosquito PR XVI. Cheers, Stefan.
  3. Hi, The early Tomcats (early as in the first 12) are a part of that arena where you'd be without competition. I mean the really early ones with the higher fences on the back. There is a 1/48 Steel Beach conversion set for the Tamiya Tomcat, but decals don't exist as far as I know. The markings are pretty cool with all the red and orange. I've read that in 1/72, the old Matchbox kit has the higher fences. I believe that it was only ever issued with decals for fleet markings. Cheers, Stefan.
  4. Hi, Not finished yet, this is just a dry-fit. But considering at how fiddly that landing gear looked, I'm glad I got this far. I plan to build and photograph her in 3 finishes: first just in PRU Blue, then with the red tail and then with the invasion stripes. Mosquito July by StefanBuysse, on Flickr Cheers, Stefan.
  5. Yes, and the sheet with the VF-32 Mig killers and the VF-41 Sukhoi killers is coming in 1/72. Cheers, Stefan.
  6. Hi, That kind of combination (43+85) stays with the aircraft its entire life, even if it moves from the Marine to Luftwaffe. It's like a serial, not a code. The only exception is when an aircraft carries a test registration (98+xx). If after the tests the aircraft returns to regular service, the aircraft will regain the same registration it had before. Cheers, Stefan.
  7. Thanks, Steven. I've done so just now. Cheers, Stefan.
  8. Hi, Here's Pete Brothers' Spitfire Mk VII. Cheers, Stefan.
  9. I'll upload another picture into the finished models thread. Cheers, Stefan.
  10. Hi, I would love that! I'm not aware of their planned releases, but I had considered sending an e-mail requesting 1/144 Victor sheets. Maybe if enough of us do that, they'll consider it. I love their 1/144 Argosy/Beverly sheet. Cheers, Stefan.
  11. Hi, The Spitfire is almost finished.I need to add a bit of weathering and the rearview mirror. Cheers, Stefan.
  12. Hi, Dutch. Where can that article be found? I know Jan Van Waarde wrote some great articles on various subjects in Scramble magazine, but I don't recall this one. Cheers, Stefan.
  13. Hi, Not sure at all if I'll get her done before the end of the GB, but I've started on some sub-assemblies. I know from the Spitfire build that I love the Mr Paint PRU Blue. While I was at Duxford, I went to see the exhibit outside the American AIr Museum that commemorates the USAAF and USN aircraft lost while flying from the UK. It consists of glass panels with a small metal silhouette for each loss. Quite impressive as one walks past panel after panel each full of silhouettes. The last panel had the US Mosquito's, there were 13 of them… Cheers, Stefan.
  14. Fantastic! With all the research and the skillful scratchbuilding that you've put into this, it is a world-class model of an LCM-3. I've seen some amazing naval models at shows and maybe some builders like that have also built LCM-3's, but there can't be many. Cheers, Stefan.
