  1. Well crap. The blow off valve was cracked and sheared off. Bolt extractor managed to get the threaded portion out, but it appears to be a fine metric thread, nothing in my stash of compressor parts matches. I did wire in a Condor MD11 Auto/Off switch, and the unit was building pressure to the cut off, but would not start up again at the low pressure cut in point. I suspect this is due to not plumbing the unloader valve somewhere back into the compressor.
  2. Bill, I'm having the same issue with a friend's medici compressor. Basically its running up to pressure, until the blow off valve opens slightly, thus creating a situation where the motor runs continuously. I was thinking it might be a blow off valve that releases too early, and was going to fit a 135 PSI valve on (easy and cheap fix first). But after seeing you have the same issue, I'm wondering if it can be repaired, or if I can install a new Pressure Shut Off switch, or, repair the existing switch (assuming it has one).
  3. Thanks fellas, I was not aware of some of the other offerings. I agree that its such an important aircraft that it really does deserve some new tooling.
  4. Fellas, its been years since I followed the 48th Aircraft release scene. I've seen new Viggens and Jags, but did someone do a new A-10 along the way that I missed? Or has one been announced? The only ones I'm aware of are Mongram one and the early HB one. Cheers! Graeme
  5. Ohh.. the weathering potential on those utterly filthy RAF birds...
  6. Man, this is looking good! Love that scheme on the Otter!
  7. my mind is blown! This is a paradigm change for the hobby.
  8. Good news! Shoot me an email when they are in stock and I'll pick up a couple. Cheers! Graeme
  9. really nice! I'm digging the prop tip chipping
  10. Like Riderfan, I let my IPMS Canada membership lapse around '97 or so. I just renewed it in 2011. I think the main reason was the quality of R/T...there were so many well written, well researched, quality articles that appealed to me, it just made sense to join again. R/T is also the only magazine I currently subscribe to. I was a member of IPMS Edmonton for a few years, and thoroughly enjoyed all the meets we had; the regular monthly ones and the impromptu morning coffees. I believe I've made some lasting friendships that transcend modelling as a result of that club. When I moved to Ottaw
  11. Denis - the Late Grizzly is already out..who would have thought we'd see one of these in styrene?!? BTW - I am ex-AD as well. 119 AD Bty / 4 AD Regt / 18 AD Regt, from 93-2003
  12. Yes & no. The ASLAV-PC is more akin to the Canadian Bison. Yes, its an 8x8 LAV, but it does not have a turret, and the upper rear hull is a continuous steep angle from the beltline.
  13. Hiya, when do you expect to have these in stock?
