  1. It's a superb model right enough, but & not that it detracts from the overall model at all, the F2a wasn't compatible with the Red Top missile, only the Firestreak. I have also seen pictures of this a/c fitted with 4 cannon ie 2 on the top of the nose & 2 below. Again it doesn't matter too much, as they were sometimes removed especially, the lower pair. ----------------
  2. There are a couple of closer up ones in this lot, about 11th or 12th down. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234943316-westland-sea-king-mk4-commando-royal-navy/ -----------------
  3. Tamiya are not the be all and end all that many seem to make out. Yes, they assemble very well, but like all model companies, they do make mistakes & inaccuracies. ------------
  4. It does have plenty of issues, yes, 33 pages of "discussion" here.......... https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/45987-hk-b-17-accuracy-issues/ I was just pointing out that the kit existed. --------------
  5. There is a 1/32 B-17 if you were not aware of it. HK Models B-17, also comes in E/F variants. https://www.super-hobby.com/products/B-17G-Flying-Fortress-Late-Production.html
  6. You can use any pva based white glue, even wood glue, which should dry clear (not all do). I have heard of some modellers using jewellers cement, which they use sometimes to fix watch glass. If the canopy is a good fit (and you don't tend to "fly" your models round the roomπŸ˜‰) or handle them much, you might be able to use whatever you use for a varnish i.e. a thin smear on the joint face & on it goes. If you do want to use super glue you can varnish, or Pledge/Klear/Astonish (whatever it's called this week) the canopy & this should protect from the super glue fogging but it is sometimes
  7. I have heard of some modellers keeping superglue in the fridge, it slows down the drying time, also a smear of vaseline around/in the nozzle/tip/cap etc helps, the super glue can't or shouldn't stick to that. That said it does have a shelf life as you probably know, eventually, it will become useless. Other suggestion is to get through more kits faster.πŸ™‚πŸ˜‰ ------------
  8. Ukrainian Mig-29's have been firing HARM missiles recently........
  9. Possibly, try links below, but the link you have shows, I think, an early variant of this seat which has a differently shaped headrest to the resin ones I have linked. You will have to compare & check with what's in the F-6 & take it from there. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/AIRE2131?result-token=CFbsd https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/CMQ32158?result-token=CFbsd https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/RSU32-0079?result-token=CFbsd https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/QB32209?result-token=CFbsd https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/QB32001?result-token=CFbsd
  10. I don't think the image for the 230 gal tanks are correct in that image, it looks suspiciously like they are the tanks used on Swiss Hunters as it has strakes on the bottom and rear mounted fins. The 230 gal tank has neither of those. Full sizes of the tanks should be approx 20" dia x 128.5" for the 100 gal tanks and 24" x 196.5" for the 230 gal size. I don't know any dimensions for the tank the Swiss used (but I wouldn't mind knowing if anyone does) It is between the sizes of the other 2 possibly around the 120 gal mark. Here's a pic of a Hunter carrying the 230 &
  11. Have you followed this exact procedure below, to the e-mail listed in it? https://support.airfix.com/hc/en-gb/articles/4411389893906-Spares-Request- I doubt they will respond to a spares enquiry to the customer services e-mail, which is for general enquiries and about orders etc, not spares, you would think they might be good enough to forward your e-mail on to the spares dept though, but I guess that isn't how Airfix works. -------------
  12. It's a bit dark some of these, cockpit photos on pages 2, 3 & 4, might be a start....... ----------- My apologies, I did not read your post properly. I posted a W walkaround, you want a Z.
  13. Good kits the Arma Hobby, very accurate, but may be a little fiddly to build. IE trial fit twice then glue, though I believe the Mk.II kits are easier to assemble than the Mk.I You should have a PM as well. --------------
  14. Another for you is the Arma Hobby kit, though it's a IIc and hasn't been released yet (sometime next year) but is likely to be the gold standard where 1/48 Hurricanes are concerned. If you prefer them bigger, Revell has a 1/32 IIb out next month. https://www.armahobby.pl/40004-hurricane-mk-iic-expert-set-1-48.html https://www.revell.de/en/products/modelmaking/planes/world-war-ii/hawker-hurricane-mk-iib.html Yes, I know it fairly well, been to Dunnottar, the fireball ceremony, a nice beach & harbour is quite quaint. Had a notion to move there when I used
  15. The new tool 1/48 Airfix captures this, a nice kit overall but needs careful assembly, as does the Italeri 1/48, which has a fair few accuracy problems and isn't as nice as the Airfix kit. And yes I am.
