  1. Restock Of The A-7 Set?

    That is some cliffhanger right there! Please do keep us posted.
  2. Restock Of The A-7 Set?

    Thanks Chris! I hope for the best then... :)
  3. Restock Of The A-7 Set?

    Sorry for asking if I missed the memo but will the complete correction set (including the vac canopy) be available again? I understand there was som technical issues with the canopy section, but still thought I should ask.
  4. 1/48 Tamiya F-15... are the A and J the same plastic?

    Excellent, many thanks for the informative replies! While the Hasegawa or even more so the GWH Eagle may be the better kits I somehow have a special interest in the Tamiya offering. Don't know the logic here but that's probably for a different forum to discuss...
  5. Scalemates says the J has new parts but no detail on what's new, so could be auxilary stuff for all I know. Just curious if the J could be turned into an early USAF F-15A as the J has the same smaller pods on both fins. Anyone who knows more?
  6. Fw-190... converting an A-5 to A-6?

    Sorry jester, I forgot to reply to the above comment. As I only need the upper wings to convert my A-5 I figure the different fuselage won't be a problem.
  7. Fw-190... converting an A-5 to A-6?

    Gaaah! I'm getting all confused over this. Before buying I checked pictures of the Eduard A-8/R2 sprues and found the rectangular bulges present so thought they would work out ok. While 30 mm armament on the A-8/R2 I assume the bulges should be identical? Here's hoping... :) As for the actual A-6 armament I have the Aber MG151 barrels required. Strange. Could it be an error in the diagram in the Valiant Wings book that has sent me on this path? Hmm...
  8. Fw-190... converting an A-5 to A-6?

    Ok... I broke down and bought an Eduard A-8/R2 (Weekend Edition) to use its upper wings on my A-6. Problem solved for now! :)
  9. Fw-190... converting an A-5 to A-6?

    Ah yes. I just today recieved the Valiant Wings book on the short nose 190s. I did notice a few erranous or swapped around photo captions but otherwise a nice book, and in their diagrams of the different versions those upper wing rectangaluar bulges are indeed shown.
  10. Fw-190... converting an A-5 to A-6?

    Hmm, I may have hit a snag with the conversion to an A-6. It seems the wing should have the rectangular bulge on the topside where the outer MG151 are located. IIRC there is one cheap kit or another that have those bulges as separate pieces? Might be a good source for those bulges. Examined my Eduard F-8 and that kit has the bulges molded in place. While their upper wings certainly look better this way it doesn't help me much for my A-6, unless I go for robbing the top wings from a second Eduard F-8.
  11. Fw-190... converting an A-5 to A-6?

    Again, thanks for all the info. Very much appreciated! I had a look at the Aber set and it includes 2 x MG 17, 2x MG FF and 4x MG 151 so by using the alternate lower wing I guess I'm all set for the A-6.
  12. Fw-190... converting an A-5 to A-6?

    Excellent info, many thanks for taking the time to help me out. I was not aware that Eduard include another set of lower wing, I will have to check my kit again. And I will go for an A-6 in allied markings using Karaya decals so all weapons should probably be present. Thanks again!
  13. Fw-190... converting an A-5 to A-6?

    Just wondering exactly how the armament differed as I am want to convert my Eduard 1/72nd scale A-5 to the A-6. I have the Aber set for gun barrels that covers the A-2 to A-6 but am unsure of which barrels to use. Also, any other details that MUST be changed for a proper A-6? If I understand correctly a pair of openings for empty shells in the belly (in some cases) should be added, but I'm not 100% sure. Any help would be most welcome! :)
  14. 'New' 1/72 Academy F-100D... which plastic in the box?

    So Academy has Italeri plastic in their box. Good to know, thanks everyone! :)
  15. Anyone who knows more about this newly released kit, ESCI plastic inside or something else? http://www.academy.co.kr/6q/board_news_main.asp?pMenuId=BOARD00002&pCode=10259&pCategory=NEWS1 TIA! :)
