  1. Despite the apparent EU bashing from some quarters in this thread, Kursad you should kwnow that if you do decide to go with registering for the EU you'll only need to register in one country. However, my info at the moment is it will be optional, you can continue to trade as before and I'll pay the charges when I collect the package. https://www.revenue.ie/en/tax-professionals/tdm/value-added-tax/part10-special-schemes/vat-ecommerce-rules-1-july-2021/vat-ecommerce-rules-1-july-2021.pdf I do take exception to the inference further up that the EU is somehow responsible f
  2. I've made some progress on the Revell kit. I'm now wondering if the u/c doors should be zinc yellow, along with the flaps and flap bays. U/c bays green. Outrigger bays yellow. Ideas? Also made a start on the H. Well, cut the wing box like Paul Boyer did. Well, my attempt at what he did. Not sure if i got them the same. I thought I was a genius when I figured I'd just install it upside down. It's keyed so it will only go one way..
  3. I have it. It weighs a ton.... The bubbles are there too,cbut that's not the worst of it. The deck itself is warped, to the extent that the catapult track dips and bends, not in a straight line in either the vertical or horizontal planes. In addition, each one of the blast shield parts are all of different thicknesses. It's impossible to get them all aligned to each other (or the base). I think you've got the better of the two. (and yes I've tried the hot water trick on mine... usually makes it marginally better until it cools down and reverts to warped state).
  4. Thanks. Based it on the online photos of the AF museum D interiors and the Duxford museum D landing gear.
  5. Hi all, Starting a double OOB build of the Revell D and the AMT H. D will be the box Orlando scheme and the H will be some recent/current example in Gunship Grey. I'm not going all out on these, the D will be OOB and the H "might" get some of the tips from Paul Boyer's article in FSM from years back. I probably will try the wing box mod.. these will be for me only and not comp standard. I know the u/c on the D is silver and on the H white, but what about the rest? So far I have the following.. D; u/c legs wheels silver. cockpit, wheel wells, uc doors and flap interio
  6. Possibly a bit too general but Vietnam Air Wars by Rene J Francillon. Covers 1945 to 1975, l'AdA, Aernonavale, USAF, USN, USMC, US Army, VNAF, NVAF & one chapter on others. If you like reading spreadsheets I also recommend Tonkin Gulf Yacht Club by the same author.
  7. Lovely model. On my to do list. Still looking for an affordable tamiya Sierra Cosworth kit.
  8. CTA do exactly this...
  9. Agreed. And I'm definitely up for buying one of these, as this collection is one of my themes. But 1/72 please!
  10. How about some VNAF birds in 1/72? Or a 10th May 1972 sheet? I know some/most/all have been done but not all are available (anyone got Silverkite 211 from Fox?) Or even the rescue mission for Locher on June 1st/2nd? A-1H Skyraider; HH-53C; F-4; F-105; MiGs. The direct task force of 119 aircraft included two HH-53C rescue helicopters, bombers, and an array of F-4 escorts, EB-66s, A-1Hs, F-105G Wild Weasels, and KC-135 tankers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Locher This is my favourite titbit I learned today; "During the rescue, an F-4E
