  1. Although not an answer to your question, I recently built a AN-M66 bomb with conical tail in 1/48 scale. The resin aftermarket bombs turned out to be undersize, and I had to build one up with strips of plastic card (see thread). Maybe that approach could work for you too. Scratchbuilding a 'box tail' is not as difficult as it looks. I built a tiny one for a 1/48 Blue Bird practice bomb, as shown below. I started building a square from four pieces of plastic card, then chamfered the corners a bit so I could glue on the four fins. Rob
  2. If my information is correct, the BMW Museum is just outside the Umweltzone, so that could be a solution. Thanks! Thank Hajo too 🙂 Rob
  3. I visited Berchtesgaden a couple of years ago. It an impressive facilty, especially the high-gradient bus ride and the elevator, and the sight at the top is awesome. But it was very, very busy in mid-summer. I came by car back then, but a quick search shows that there's a rail connection. Here's a start: https://www.berchtesgaden.de/en/general-information/maps-local-transportation Rob
  4. That will be near impossible to get to for me, since I haven't arranged a stupid 'Umweltzone' sticker for my car.. Rob
  5. I'll go on holiday near Innsbruck (Austria) this month, and I'm planning to travel around a bit to visit museums and other interesting places. I expect to travel mostly north in the direction of Munich. So far I've identified: - Deutsches Museum Flugwerft Schleissheim, close to Munich (150 km) - BMW World, in Munich (150 km) - Starfighter Museum in Niederalteich (300 km) From the above you can see that my main interests are planes and cars 🙂 If you have any suggestions, please post them! Rob
  6. One more airbrush mask idea: use solder of the appropriate diameter. Stick it down with (e.g.) Blu Tack. Rob
  7. There's a long list on my page: Design your own Alps / OKI custom decals Rob
  8. I'm definitely no F-16 expert, but to me this one looks like it was painted in the simplified scheme that used just two of the original three colors. It's especially the front fuselage that screams this to me. Rob
  9. Better use a dog: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NvBGb5lf78 I've seen it many times, but it still makes me laugh 😀 Rob
  10. I simply bought all slide fit tube packs they had in brass: SFT1 0.4mm, 0.6mm, 0.8mm & 1.0mm Brass Tube (0.1 mm wall thickness) SFT2 0.3mm, 0.5mm, 0.7mm & 0.9mm Brass Tube (0.1 mm wall thickness) SFT7 1.2mm, 1.4mm, 1.6mm & 1.8mm Brass Tube (0.1 mm wall thickness) SFT8 1.1mm, 1.3mm, 1.5mm & 1.7mm Brass Tube (0.1 mm wall thickness) SFT9 1mm, 2mm, 3mm Brass Tube (1 mm wall thickness) SFT10 4mm, 5mm, 6mm Brass Tube (1 mm wall thickness) You'll find used you never thought of. Recommended! Rob
  11. Agreed fully, fantastic stuff. They call them "Slide Fit Tube Packs' . They are not always included on the shop display rack, you may have to look around for them. Rob
  12. Maybe like this, with Blu Tack blobs: Just be sure to avoid CA from flowing under the Blu Tack too. Rob
  13. Nice, thanks! That's quite a load for a flight deck take-off .. Rob
  14. Thanks! For my F-84F stores project this will not apply 🙂 - I can't see those 2000 pounders hanging from the outboard 14" pylons .. Rob
  15. A yes, of course, I hadn't thought about that. Maybe because I built my two M65s and two M66s without lugs, which is technically incorrect. Instead they have 2x2 mm magnets installed at 14 / 30 scale inches, so they can be attached to the F-84F pylons that also have magnets, so you can build any configuration. Rob
