  1. Good day guys, A question, if I may, to anyone knowledgeable about the MiG-17. Currently I am building the Trumpeter MiG-15 and I also have the Hobby Boss MiG-17 in the stash. Since the cockpits are very similar I did notice that the MiG-15 has a window-like partition just behind the seat fixed to the sliding canopy. In the MiG-17 kit however, there is no such part. Is this an oversight by Hobby Boss or is this feature not present in the MiG-17? I thought maybe to improve rear visibility, they left it off on the Fresco. Thanks for any reply, Pierre
  2. Thanks habu2, sorry for the late reply. I love these math problems, lol. Will have a go at it now. Thanks for taking the time! Pierre
  3. Thanks guys your help is appreciated! Pierre
  4. Hi Sean, That is an excellent idea, thanks kindly sir! Pierre
  5. Good day guys, Can someone please help me with a calculation here? I want to create a cone shaped ring of plastic to add to the inside of a 1/48 Mig-15 intake in order to smoothen out that abruptly ending lip just aft of the intake mouth, a problem plaguing all Mig-15/17 models apparently. The smaller and larger circumference of the cone is easy using 2πr, right? But since this cone is created using a flat curved strip of plastic, how do I calculate the radiuses and corresponding angle between the two radiuses in order to create a curved strip that, when joined together, will
  6. Thanks Mstor, I stand fully corrected, much appreciated, Regards, Pierre
  7. Thanks kindly guys, after some searching I am also sure it is the Italeri kit. I think the Academy has droop-able intakes which should make them look different. The Sidewinders also look kinda Italeri -ish. Regards, Pierre
  8. Hi Guys, Can anyone confirm which manufacturer is contained in THIS boxing? It does look like Hasegawa. Regards, Pierre
  9. Much appreciated guys! Regards, Pierre
  10. Thanks to all for responding, I was not aware that the Hasegawa nose gear is wrong. I do have the Academy kit also, how is the nose gear leg of this kit? Regards, Pierre
  11. Hi guys, I am busy with a 1/48 F-86F-30 Sabre, SAAF in Korea 1953. Just as a matter of interest, is the Sabre nose gear offset to one side by any chance? Looking at my Hasegawa kit, it sure looks like it. Thanks, Pierre
  12. Thanks mawz, that is interesting indeed. Sorry for my late response. Pierre
  13. Privyet(?) Nino, How about THIS I see a central fuel tank in some of the pictures. Regards Pierre
  14. Hi friends, I have two P-38 questions I need help with please. The first concerns the Academy 1/48 kit. I see on my Hasegawa kit there are a pair of vent louvres just ahead of the turbochargers on top of each boom but when I checked my Academy kit there seem to be two plastic lumps in the same position as if the louvres were filled before molding. Is this a problem with all Academy kits? The second question concerns the Red Bull P-38. Would I need an F, G or H to build this plane? Thanks for any help, Regards Pierre
  15. Thanks kindly Mstor, great idea, since the stenciling would more or less be the same, and those are thankfully included. Think I'll do that! Regards Pierre
