  2. Hi All, Found a short article about B-17E being modified as Armed Transport and used in PTO. https://www.historynet.com/old-soldiers-pacific-b-17-armed-transports.htm The article mentioned several modifications done, such as the elimination of the belly turret; "“One of the first things they did was remove the ball turret because of the possibility of entanglement of the parachutes during a drop mission,” recalled Jack Hoover, a pilot in the 317th Troop Carrier Group. “All the other guns were left operational." And also further modification on the
  3. Good progress there, Laz... Which size you're going to use for the rivets? Cheers, Mario
  4. Wow! I'm glad you revive this thread Laz! And your build results are amazing!! Your thread was the reason I bought the kit and Eduard's interior set... Anyway.. I'm still not quite understood by these warning... And having invested on the same set, I'm curious with it.. can it be fixed? Or should I make certain modifications? And do you have more detailed stories on how you make this "rod" (sorry... I can't find what it should be called) Cheers, Mario Indonesia

  6. Hi all, I'm in the middle of building 1/72 S-3B Vikings using Hasegawa S-3A kit.. I'm going to use Twobobs S-3B Santa Tracker decal and there's no pictures/information of the particulars airframe (160214 /NK 700) regarding it's sonobouy holes. The Twobobs sheet shows it's still have all of the original holes But Instruction sheet from Hasegawa S-3B kits I found online here; https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10034540/70/1 shows almost all of the holes should be filled.. So which one is correct? Cheers, Mario
  7. Totally agree with Warthog86, And don't forget Werner Wings Pavehawk decal set In fact that's one of my dream projects... Anybody know where to get the Armycast MH/HH-60G PaweHawk conversion kit beside from their web? Most preferably around Asia... it's quite expensive to send kits from Czech to my part of the earth 😩 Cheers, Mario
  8. Looks beautiful... what is your method for fading the green? love it... Cheers, Mario
  9. Any ASW control suit details in the cabin? Or they just added parts for torpedo and pylon? anyhow... I want one! Cheers, Mario
  10. Great progress... I built the same kit some years ago, and remember the rivets was too heavy but personally I think it look nice in the end. I got another one I'm planning to build as "Cherry Girl" which also a Mig killer.. Any plan to modify the nose gun camera? I believe the kit supply the later version, while your reference photo showed the early version. Cheers, Mario Indonesia
  11. Wow!!! Thank you, guys! Thank you for organizing a great GB... Congrats to all participants with fantastic projects (and colorful results too!) Cheers, Mario Indonesia
  12. Ouch.. Very sorry for your loss. My parents house was almost regularly flooded until the last 1 or 2 years. I know how it feels to see your stuff, including the built and unbuilt model gone or even broken. Glad to hear you and your wife are safe and already start cleaning and salvaging. My thoughts and prayers for you and family. Regards, Mario Indonesia. PS: Unbuilt models model which drowned in flood still can be built.. surely need new decals but I have actually built several of mine too.
  13. Thank you for the kind words, guys! It's has been fun... I already added several pictures in the hangar section Cheers, Mario Indonesia
