  1. The length quoted for their 1/72 C-130 doesn't scale right either...
  2. No problem Steve! https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235064206-new-tamiya-mustang-132/ https://www.luckymodel.com/scale.aspx?item_no=TA 60328 https://tamiyablog.com/2019/12/some-upcoming-2020-tamiya-releases/
  3. The cited length scales up to 27.72m, so too short for a J but also too short for an H? My calculations may be wrong!
  4. If it helps your decision in anyway, I've read an F-51D boxing is on the way.
  5. The bomb bay's full of 21 bombs in one the CAD images so Black Buck 1 and 2 should be no problem. No sign of any Shrikes yet.
  6. Everything I've seen and read about the Academy B-1B is positive and makes me want one, I hadn't seen the B-52 news and I am very excited about that based on the Bone!
  7. Hi all, This is the New Zealand-exclusive Flying Kiwis rebox of the Italeri A-4E/F kit, which came with low-viz markings decals as work by our Skyhawks from the mid-1990s until retirement, with some surgery and extra bits by me to replicate 05 as she was on the day of the Air Combat Force disbandment, December 13 2001. I've seen photos and heard stories of her display at Sqn Ldr Jason "Easty" Easthope's hands that day so I thought it'd be the best subject. I'd already been saving reference material for a while when a friend and fellow member of the WONZ forum asked if I'd like this kit as he wasn't going to do anything with it.

  8. I showed my wife the box art - she made a face like she ate a lemon and said "Well, you can tell it's Russian!" I, on the other hand, am enjoying the build and will follow progress with interest. I really enjoy your builds, Ken.
  9. Hello Alexandre, Did you find a solution for your decal issues?
  10. That is some beautiful work. For years I wanted to scratch a 1/32 Gull Six with open cowls, but I think the Dora kit would be a much better option. I love your engine and cowls! Inspirational stuff.
  11. I'd love a Qantas set!
  12. Hi all, I know very little about the B-17 but have wanted to build a movie Memphis Belle for some time. I'd like to build the main movie Belle, N3703G, which is still flying in the US and I imagine some forum members have seen her in person - would it be best to start with a G and backdate (like the film production did with the real machine in 1989) or an F, and which kit would be the most accurate for this airframe as depicted in the film?
  13. Italeri have had their reissue of the ESCI JetRanger in their catalogue as an upcoming release....for three years now. One day it'll happen!!
