    Dreaming for.....1/72 resin wants!

    Okay...Heller won't help with that but why not ask for the decals too P.S. the Heller kit would give you the clear roof base to put that on and the missiles but that's all

    How about some more builds

    Just as I am sure that you would not like to be mistaken for a Belgian, remember that ARC is run by a Canadian.......

    Dreaming for.....1/72 resin wants!

    For what it is worth, there is a Heller kit (80284) that is a retooled Airfix Gazelle with the French roof mounted sight and Hot missiles and some other parts but it is basically the Airfix kit

    Bad year...

    There is detail on the Robinson R44 here: https://www.72news.eu/2019/02/stranskyrobinson-r-44-astroraven.html and the Kamov here: https://www.72news.eu/2019/01/ace-model-instructions-and-markings-for.html Both look pretty good....
  5. Dave...For what it is worth, both the Dream Model 1/72 US Coast Guard Dauphin releases (H65A/B, H65C) have photo etch sheets that include 1/72 baskets but I haven't checked to see if Dream Models sell the photo etch as a separate detail set. You would just have to add the floats at each end. HTH Cheers Bruce

    A Warning to Moai Vincent

    Actually no posts in here count and thankfully he (it?) hasn't corrupted anywhere else on the board. Maybe Vinnie uses voice recognition software as that would explain why he is always shouting
  7. Pretty easy to scratch build. Just copy one from a Sea King (or steal an unused one) kit.......
  8. Curious.....using my laptop and chrome my link takes me right to the detail page for the actual conversion but C2j's link gives a 404 error instead of what I assume would be Air-graphics main page........

    phantoms 2018 completed builds.

    I believe the Falcon 20s are 1/72 Mach II kits!!!
  10. Works just fine when I use it but basically there is a mail order firm in the UK called Air-graphics that does 1/72 decals and resin parts/conversions and they do a resin Pelican conversion consisting of 9 parts plus instructions........I've ordered decals and other resin stuff from them O.K........

    A Warning to Moai Vincent

    PRODUCTION NOTE: This is where STEVE will edit in the obligatory "trains entering tunnel" videos followed by a geyser or volcano eruption then fade to a short commercial message and we will rejoin our story the next day.....I wonder who will pay for such great product exposure? Perhaps a Memorial Marker Maker or a Stone Counter-top guy.........

    1/48 Hawker Typhoon???

    If you are doing a Typhoon, check to see what the squadron was trained for before you arm the plane as each squadron specialized in what they used. For example, the 3 Canadian squadrons were trained for bombing and never carried rockets whereas other squadrons were trained with rockets and wouldn't carry bombs and a mixed load would be very rare so check photos of the plane you are doing or other same squadron aircraft if you can.
