  1. As I suspected you're making stuff up..
  2. Sounds like someone has changed your sheet out then. Despite not having Cartograph on the sheet they are printed by them. And as you can see in the image above the national markings clearly don't look like they are printed with a dot matrix printer. Could you post these decals up for us to look at?
  3. Hobby easy lists (or did) a weapons set as a separate product. Albeit at a hefty $30 USD I'd definitely buy a weapons set as those GBU-12 and AIM-9's look excellent. Having fought Eduard's resin ones recently I'm looking for alternatives
  4. I built the Airfix P-51 recently. I prefer it over the Tamiya one. It's great kit. I have to disagree with Gary, the decals are excellent quality as well (Cartogragh) . I used them for the national markings and aftermarket for the nose art on my build. The only part I didn't likew were the wheels, so I replaced those with AM ones. here's image of it [ The Meng P-51 does long excellent though
  5. Only 2 weeks til summer 2018. Not long now
  6. Write to Hasegawa (a old school letter not an email) Hasegawa Seisakusho Company Limited 3-1-2 Yagusu Yaizu Shizuoka 425 8711 Japan Clearly state what you are after eg 1/48 Hurricane Mk IID Kit # JT52, parts L4, A5, J7 and J11. Enclose three (3) international reply coupons (purchase from the Post Office) (last time this cost me $10 AUD total including post) Post and wait 3 weeks. The parts will usually appear in the post with some flyers. I have used this service 3 times. Twice I got the parts within 4 weeks the last time it took 4 months
  7. Guess I'll be looking for a Flickr alternative for my aircraft photos then...
  8. FWIW we used Pledge furniture polish in the RNZAF to clean aircraft canopies. I always wondered why, now I suspect the answer is that Plexus is the same as Pledge.. but Pedge was cheaper 😄
  9. From what I see most forums have less traffic these days. I frequent 4 or 5 forums (here, HS, Brtimodeller, Aussie modeller and Kiwi modeller) and all bar Britmodeller seem to have less traffic than they did pre facebook. That said I actualy find myself checking out ARC more often as it doesn't have hundreds of new posts a day. I find I can get my fix in 30 mins or so. IMHO Facebook is definitely the reason. it's so simple to join groups you're interested in and post a quick image, especially fro niche subjects. I build 48 armour and it's only place I go for that sort
  10. Nice work. You don't see this scheme often, which is a shame because it's quite attractive
  11. Lovely finish Jon, I love Mr color as well but I'd never get that sort of demarcation. I really like the ejection Seat grab handles. I think they look very convincing, great idea. I enjoyed the article (as usual). I know you don't do stores/weapons etc but you really should. : D
  12. Doesn't everyone use the unread content function? That's where I bookmark every forums
  13. And people thought I was being stupid 😄
  14. Looks great. Is the cockpit the kit one?
  15. Then perhaps you need to read some of 105 page to understand what the issue was..
  16. Good luck with the build. It's a bit a hellish journey depending on how accurate you want it. I'e not seen a post 1405 S-702 built (project Sea 1405 added the FLIR and a whole lot of other lumps and bumps to the S-70B2) . I don't actually know if anyone ever did a conversion, and if they did it's rare. I think you'll be scratch building a bit My pre 1405 build log is here, the finished build here My walkaround is here
