    Airfix News Just in from Telford: 1/24 Hellcat!

    OH yes! This just went straight to the top of my must-get list!

    Paul Fisher Fire Relief - GoFundMe

    So glad you and your family are OK, I can't begin to imagine how awful it must be to lose so much so quickly. Hopefully the GoFundMe campaign will help you out, I donated just now, wish I could do more but I guess every little helps. If it would help, I have your F9F-5 Panther, F9F-8 Cougar kits as well as your Meteor T.7, F-8C, RF-8C Crusader and A-1E Skyraider conversion sets, plus the wheels you made for the F-105D Thunderchief and F-84 Thunderjet. All are complete and unstarted andI'm more than happy to ship them out to you when you're ready if it will help you replace the masters lost in the fire. I'm happy to cover the shipping both ways (i.e, I'll send them to you and pay the shipping costs for you to return them to me when you're finished with them) there's no rush to get them back to me, just drop me a pm when you're ready for me to send them. Good luck and my best wishes to you, Susy and the furries, best regards, David.
  3. And I'd do the same for a set of landing gear for the Revell 1/32nd F-4 Phantom kits !

    1:24 Airfix Mosquito Gun Bay Upgrade

    Beautiful work, makes me want to go out and get the Airfix Mossie just to use these on it !

    I'd definitely be up for the F-5, F-111 and F-4E kits. I'd also go for the Buccaneer as I remember beating the old Airfix 1/48th scale kit into submission a few years ago and wishing at the time, that someone would produce a nice, accurate and well detailed kit of the same ! Don't get me wrong, the Airfix kit turned out nicely, but it was definitely not a fun-filled project.
  6. As I have a bit of a 'thing' for the P-36/P-40 series of aircraft (I have six of the Hasegawa kits!), I'd love to see RoG produce a P-36 and P-40 B/C in 1/32nd scale. I'd also like a series of P-38 kits, including the P-38 F/G/H and, as it seems unlikely that Tamiya will ever produce them, a series of late mark F4U Corsairs -4/4B/5/5N/AU-1 would also be fantastic.

    Tornado GR.4 New Tool Italeri 1/32 as well!!

    Yes, crack on with it, I have an ECR kit just waiting for your F.3 conversion ! Hope the printer stops being temperamental soon !

    Check Kits-World, I'm fairly certain that they produce swastika sheets, you can also find similar sheets on Hannants website. E-Bay is not always the best place to find things !

    Special Hobby Tempest VI

    Next tweak list: Mustang!

    Great work, this will be very useful when I get around to building my P-51, P-51A and A-36. I believe that there is a guy on here, Thunda, that is producing corrected spinners for these kits.
  11. Just checked my Hasegawa P-40 collection, I do have a spare short tail section, but it is from the Kittyhawk Mk.I/III kit (08204) and is slightly different to the P-40K tail in that it doesn't have the rounded fillet fitted to the short-tail K. It would probably be a fairly straight-forward modification to add the fillet yourself, I'm thinking that masking off the basic shape, then building up the fillet with milliput and sanding/polishing back to the correct curvature would probably work. Let me know if this seems like a usable solution to you, and I'll get the tail parts shipped asap. I don't want anything for them so if you think you can use them, just p.m me your shipping address and I'll get it sorted out asap. Have a great evening, best regards, David.
  12. I might have a spare short tail sprue as I have several of the Hasegawa P-40 kits, including a couple that I'll be converting to an F and an L. Give me a day or so to check and I'll let you know. If I have them as spares, you're welcome to them, fingers crossed and all that, eh?
  13. Can't wait to get my hands on one of these F-5 kits, my only problem is how to stop at just one! There are three options on the kits sheet alone that mean I'll probably end up with three of them, not to mention the F-5F !

    First pics of the Revell P-51D

    I got mine yesterday from the shop I work at, haven't opened it yet as I'm showing great restraint and will-power and have wrapped it as a Christmas pressie to myself, looking forward to opening it on Christmas day !

    Corrected Meteor F.4 canopy?

    I'm in for an F-4 canopy/windscreen set as well! I just ordered the T-7 and RF-8G conversion sets.
