  2. My airline uses three jettys to disembark an A380, we can do it with two but three is preferred.
  3. They'll still be used by existing operators with the possible exception of Malaysian Airlines who are looking to get rid of their fleet.The main reasons for the failure are that it's relatively expensive to operate fuel wise when there are twin engined airliners which carry almost as much for a lower cost although the aircraft does have it's uses for slot constrained airports . The A380 is also relatively restricted as to where it operates as it needs widened taxiways and modified airport infrastructure to support it. The aircraft's cargo capacity is relatively limited compared to say the Boei
  4. I wouldn't describe the A340 as a total screw up , I still see them on a regular basis around the world. As for the A380 factory shutting it's lights off for the last time , it'll be re-tooled for another Airbus version. The only reason the 747-8 is going is the cargo version because it has been a relative failure with only 47 passenger version sold.
  5. The instructions for the HH-46D boxing are on this page https://www.scalemates.com/kits/academy-12207-ch-hh-46d-sea-knight-us-navy-version--107288
  6. AFAIK , the only one is in 1/32 scale from Isracast.
  7. Instructions now available for this forthcoming kit, https://stage.revell.de/fileadmin/import/images/bau/04994_%23BAU_F_18E_SUPER_HORNET.PDF Can anyone with more knowledge of the real thing tell me if the spine is OK, I thought it looked a little flat to me.
  8. The Heller C-130 is a rebox of the Italeri kit https://www.scalemates.com/kits/103349-heller-80385-lockheed-c-130-hercules If you google reviews of the Italeri C-130H kit then everything aftermarket wise there is applicable to the Heller kit. Attack Hobby did a series of updates for the C-130 which are OOP but are being re-released under Brengun. None of the 1/72 / 48 kits are stretched C-130s, you need a conversion for that which are listed at the bottom of the above link. HTH Stephen
  9. How about this for an interesting scheme? https://www.flickr.com/photos/20998733@N04/43342017882
  10. One reason I have is that it's quite time consuming to take pics with my camera then have to load them to flickr then upload them here whereas on Facebook it's easier to put pics up there.
  11. Excellent! I have an Italeri Chinook waiting for the sheet then.
  12. How about RAF Chinook HC.2 ZD983 which was the RAF display Chinook for 2018 and also took part in a tour of former RAF bases in Germany. It also has the RAF 100 markings on it. https://www.airliners.net/photo/UK-Air-Force/Boeing-Chinook-HC2-352/5058061/L
  13. What about the NATO Heavy Airlift Wing based in Hungary? One of their aircraft transited through Glasgow Airport a few days ago.
  14. Kittyhawk didn't release a T-45C or EA-6B, Kinetic did and they're two different companies.
  15. So very sorry to hear that, my thoughts and prayers go to his family.
  16. I'd like to see the Hornet and Super Hornet FSD schemes as decals.
  17. Hobbyeasy now showing a release date of 15/1/2019 https://www.hobbyeasy.com/en/data/tare0bal4idjzfrztyrj.html
  18. The Tornados were pooled among the squadrons at Lossiemouth and Marham, Ollie T-Y is correct in saying that the markings are very limited .
  19. No he didn't it was a one armed man!
