  1. Sorry, Ed. I won't be home until next sunday. Cheers, Stefan.
  2. Thanks, Ed. They came from 1/48 scale kits. I think they represent the 250 lbs bomb in those. I gave some of them to a friend, also for a 1/72 project. So, I'm not sure if mine came from the Hasegawa or the Tamiya P-47. Tamiya and Hasegawa's 1/48 P-47 both have them and they are the only bombs in there. Academy's P-47 also has a bigger box-finned bomb. Cheers, Stefan;
  3. Hi, I never thought that other subjects could not be entered in this GB. It's always interesting to see other sbujects and techniques. Cheers, Stefan.
  4. Aargh, we're not going to get stuck at 20 votes, are we? One could also build P-47's. In 1/48: the old Monogram, the 1990' Academy and Hasegawa kits and the 2003 Tamiya kit. In 1/72: the old Hasegawa versus the more recent Tamiya. Cheers, Stefan.
  5. Hi, This is a link to my Intruder build from 2015 http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/286950-172-usmc-a-6a-intruder/ I don't remember for sure what I used for the bombs, I think they came from Hasegawa or Tamiya 1/48 scale P-47's. I see that back in the day, I also called them "WW2 bombs". But now I've read that they aren't, they were part of a series of bombs developed just after WW2. It was very sursprising to me that in those days of "everything is going to be atomic" a new series of conventional bombs was developed. I see in my thread that "Kurnass 77" calls them "Korean war bombs" which is more correct. Cheers, Stefan.
  6. Mmm, a well-researched 1/32 F-51D sounds nice. I'd guess that very few people on the planet are aware of these vents. From looking at that RF-51D picture and from the fact that Eduard is going to make new fuselage halves for the fillet-less P-51D, I figure that they'll also make new fuselage halves for the F-6D that they have planned. I have no idea if they'll do a Korean war boxing or if they'd make a new sprue for that one. Edit: I found your in-progress thread. Awesome! Cheers, Stefan.
  7. Hi, Peter. The "Overtrees" sets are just the plastic sprues (without decals, instructions, PE or masks) sold in white boxes. Where to get them kind of depends on your location. If you're in Europe, you could just order them from the Eduard site. For US customers, the shipping charges make ordering from Eduard a less attractive option. The P-51D overtrees are still available from the Eduard site. As a BFC member, you could get one for 10.69 € plus shipping right now, if not a member it would be about 12.00 € plus shipping. Cheers, Stefan.
  8. Hi, That's an interesting shot. The DF loop is on the sprues as parts G8 (the base) and G9 (the actual loop) , I think. I wasn't aware of those added cooling vents. Were these on all F-51's in Korea? This picture being of an RF-51, I wonder if that is something for the Recce models or a post-WW2 modification for F-51's in general. The radio set-up behind the headrest in the picture is not in the P-51D box, I believe. Cheers, Stefan.
  9. Hi, Apart from the decals, everything you need for a Korean war F-51D is in the box (even rockets). The latest news from the newsletter is that the Royal Class boxing (due out in December) will not have the F-6D parts (which were originally planned to be included), but there will be a new sprue with parts for the VLR Mustangs, including the 110 gallon metal tanks. Cheers, Stefan;
  10. Hi, With at least 2 models per participant and 16 votes, we should have 32 models at the starting line already. Cheers, Stefan.
  11. Hi, No worries, no offence taken. If anything , I should feel honoured to be mentioned as a potential buddy. Cheers, Stefan.
  12. Hi, Probably a moot point, but I did not intend to build a Strike Eagle in this GB. The GWH kit would be for a Kadena F-15C and the Hasegawa kit for a Desert Storm F-15C (probably Eglin's "Gulf Spirit"). Cheers, Stefan.
  13. Hi, I could be totally wrong, but I think that the wing/flaps set is the same. A case of DB productions ceasing to exist and the moulds being taken over by Airwaves. The Hindenburg tanks came from the F3's and I believe that during Granby they stayed the same colour as the underside of a Tornado F3: a light grey, not a tan. Some may have received a camo coat later on, but I doubt that happened before the ceasefire. The intakes may not be a simple affair, I seem to remember they received black RAM paint at RAF St-Athan before combat. I have no idea if that's the entire intake or a distinct patern as on the F-111. Cheers, Stefan.
  14. Hi, I might build some 1/48 F-15 Eagles, the Hasegawa kit as a Desert Storm Eagle and the GWH kit as a Kadena Eagle. I have a started but unfinished Tamiya F-15 too, that will become a FIS aircraft with the ASAT missile. Cheers, Stefan.
