    Has anyone started the new PZL-11 yet?

    Well, the PZL came today, and all you guys were ABSOLUTELY correct about the corrugation detail-WOW! Can't wait to start this one! Tom Krouse WELL DONE, SIMON!!!
  2. Hello- I received word that my PZL P-11 kit had shipped late last week; can't WAIT to see it. Has anyone started on (or finished) this kit yet? Thanks- Tom Krouse
  3. Good afternoon! I can't find a price on this kit anywhere; what's the cost?

    Hall Bulldog Racer

    I built this one about 2 years ago; difficult, but very, VERY sharp once done! Tom Krouse

    P-39 Decals in 1/32d

    Yes; "Fancy Nancy" was a P-400. Thanks for the tip; I'll TRY, but that may be a BIT beyond my "Skill Set". I may have to settle for the Zotz "Wall Eye" scheme.

    P-39 Decals in 1/32d

    Hello guys! I recently bought the Special Hobby P-39; LOVE the kit, HATE the decal options! I built the AM 1/48 kit last year ("Fancy Nancy"), and would really like to find a similar decal sheet in 1/32. The only one I see in scale is the Zotz sheet with a "semi" shark mouth that I'm not crazy about. Any ideas? Rumors of anything coming out? Tom Krouse

    Erwin- What I love about this plane is the combination of different surface finishes (metal, plywood, and fabric), plus that GREAT French camo color scheme. Your brush work is amazing! This plane (and the Mk I Hurricane) are real "transition" aircraft between antique and modern-fascinating...... Can't wait to see the result! Tom Krouse

    Same here! Where are you getting the decals for this ace's plane? Are you making them off a printer?

    Erwin- I had the same problem with the first one of these MS-406's I built (I've done two). I wrote Azur and they sent me a complete new set of cockpit glass-FAST and FREE...Very nice. I don't usually go wild over the cockpit detail either , but the "high-tech" version has an INCREDIBLE PE dashboard set, plus decals for the Polish unit I wanted. One of my favorite kits-can't wait to see what you do with it. Tom Krouse

    AZUR: Dewoitine D-520

    I agree-it builds into a REALLY attractive model-the decals are excellent, and of course the French camo schemes are a nice change of pace.

    Williams Brothers' rebirth!

    All- While this is not 1/32 scale or larger, I just heard from a reliable source that the last remaining obstacle to the reissue of a "new" WB kit (the C-46) has been cleared! Nice to know they are on the road back-LOVE their 1/32 scale Thompson Trophy planes.
  12. Interesting article on Modeling Madness on the new Special Hobby 1/32 scale Brewster Buffalo, using the excellent new decal set from Yellow Wings Decals: http://www.modelingmadness.com/reviews/pre...tc/tmc32f2a.htm I just built this kit AND used the decal set, and had NO problems matching the Willow Green engine cowling using good old Testor's Model Master paints. The decals appear to be in PERFECT register-no problem at all! BTW, this is clearly MPM's best 1/32 scale kit yet!

    Bingo! THAT should do it! Does Hannants take PayPal? THANKS so much-the kit arrived this morning in GREAT condition. Tom K

    1/32 scale decals for Spitfire

    Alan- Thanks, this helped a LOT! Does anybody know where I can find a decal set just of 1/32 scale gray squadron letter markings-that's all I really need to do his "D-B" marking.?? Tom K

    1/32 scale decals for Spitfire

    Hello- I'm getting ready to start an old Revell Mk I Spitfire and was wondering where I would find decals to depict Sir Douglas Bader's aircraft? Any ideas? The kit decals will probably be unusable due to age, and in any case are the wrong squadron. Tom Krouse
