  1. I think you're right. I'll see if I can find the instructions for the Silver Wings kit. Maybe they'll shed some light on the matter! Thanks for the good idea!
  2. Hi Juraj, the parts you mention are the blast tubes. The ShKAS machine-guns are supposed to be placed just in front of the cockpit and behind/around the fuel tank.
  3. Hi guys, I have ICM's I-153 kit but nowhere in the kit are the 4 machine guns to be found (or mentioned in the instructions) that should reside in the fuselage. As far as I know the should be visible as they are cocked manually by the pilot? So it's not like they were situated directly behind the engine. In fact, they had very long blast tubes. Does anyone have (or could point to) drawings or photos of how the MG's were mounted in the fuselage by the Soviets and how the ammunition was stored?? Here a link to the kit instructions: https://www.scalemate
  4. Looking forward to this kit! I DO wonder about the strength of the resin wing-fold, though... Even with the steadying poles supporting the wings, wouldn't they be prone to breakage?
  5. My condolences for your loss, Jennings. I hope you find the strength to carry on.
  6. Just my two cents: I would like to see two-seaters allowed, too. I don't expect that we'll see a squadron of Phantoms or Tomcats built! But it is nice to see maybe one or two?
  7. On the other hand, Eduard has a big sale from 05-05 to 09-05 to commemorate 75 years of Liberty. So not all of CZ is shut down. But it is of course always a possibility that a couple of employees are sick at home so the process is slower.
  8. Huh? The aircraft registration on the instructions and the decals differ?...
  9. As the title says: Do you see merit (preferably profit ) in producing decals for Tamiya's forthcoming F-51D? The "Was that too Fast"-option is already (too) well known from the 48th scale offering... Besides, many ANG units flew the F-51D in very colourful markings. Heck, even some active USAF units had you take out your sunglasses... Thanks in advance, guys! Erik.
