  1. Afternoon, Am planning to do a MI 8 and came across a picture of one in North Korean colors. They look to be a dark green and reddish brown over a lighter bright green. Anyone have any information as to the closer FS match? Is there any decals available for any North Korean aircraft? Regards, Chris
  2. Not having seen the Spanish kit I cannot comment on it's quality. The conversion isn't that hard to do if you have a kit of the HH-3. Finding USCG decals will be an issue. Chris
  3. WhirlyBirds make a kit of the HH-3 for both the USCG and USAF. Check out Linden Hill for availability or contact WB directly. There was also a conversion set from Aviation Workshop at one point. Chris
  4. Hi, Will you be scaling up the RAAF Mirage sheets to 32nd scale. Chris
  5. Afternoon, Just a little note to remind you all that we are hosting our 2nd Gala on May 28. Contest details available on our site IPMS Real Cote. Hope to see you there. Regards, Chris
  6. Afternoon , Unicraft out of Ukraine make one also in 72 but it is very crude, needs a lot of TLC. I have both kits and if you can get your hands on the Whirlybird kit get it, you won't be disappointed. Regards, Chris
  7. It's their older scheme,white with a blue stripe with lt. grey bottom and blue tail fins. Will check out the car colours. Regards, Chris
  8. Good day, Am building the Shorts Skyvan in Nordair colours and would need the closest match for the blue they used. I have the Whiskey Jack decals but the blue is too dark from what I was told. Thanks in advance and Happy New Year Chris
  9. Nice build. May I make an observation, I believe the kit skids are too tall for your build. From the pictures posted, you would need to lower the skids quite a bit to make it sit properly. I am far from being an expert on the OH-6 but I recall that they have both low and tall gear. Regards, Chris
  10. Thanks for the information, will check out the threads from Britmodeler Chris
  11. Afternoon, Can I use the MK III kit to build a MK VII. What would be involved , modification wise? Regards, Chris
  12. Good day, Just back from vacation and I see this thread. Do they have a North American or European distributor or do we have to order directly. Thanks Chris
  13. Morning, I picked-up this old Revell kit of the Enterprise for 10 $...missing a couple of pieces..mostly the base / stand. The only issue is that I don't know what scale it is...not indicated on the box or instructions. The model is about 22 " long and I would like to replace the kit supplied planes / chopper with some aftermarket if available Hadn't built a ship in a dogs age and couldn't pass it up. thanks Chris
  14. As mentioned it has issues but is workable, am currently working on a Canadian Coast Guard version with floats. The main issue is the flatness of the fuselage, it should be more round on the top. Regards, Chris
