  1. another vote for the magic scale modelling motors. They are very small and fitted exceptionally well the B-25 engines
  2. i built a KA-6D in 1/32 with 4 drop tanks I also read that electric intruder post saying that the tanks were awful, so i compared the trumpeter A-6 and the hasegawa tanks Well to me it's not that awful. Yes there's a difference, but barely visible Length is the same, front section is the same, the hasegawa are just thicker at the end section. Something I could really live with; So in the end, I sticked to the trumpeters. Note also the missing details at the rear tip, I made these with decals You biggest problem is not the tank actuallly, it's the way the tanks are attached to the pylon. The intruder have a very noticeable downward angle when loading stores, including the wing bags. Trumpeter wants you to load them flat and that is a real eye attractive mistake. That's the trumpy way: and after the correction: Hope that helps, have fun with the KA-6D, it's a great kit. But it needs a bit of love, especially converting to tanker beware wing fence and DECM antennas More info in my WIP
  3. I can help with the A-7E part of the CVW-8 Microscale Not sure I can find all the smalle stencils, modex and NAvy markings for the corsair, but at least I have the big red parts and the snake
  4. When I researched the same question when doing this one i found out that it was indeed possible, but both small doors at mid section should be up, not only the one with the raised wing. Like in this picture, clearly seen on the starboard wing in red
  5. You mean, you did THIS in 6 days? That's insane Nice colours, typically what I would use as well rather than the dull 3 grey tone on the instructions, much more colourful. I like it
  6. She's incredible. Great work !! what catched my eye was the shoe marks around the cockpit, i tried to make them but never was satisfied with my result. I'd be satisfied if i could have done half the quality of yours !!
  7. No need to wait for tonight, i even have it on this computer: dunno who created it but i know i found it from Monster kit retailler in France, so all credits to them. I hope it's okay to post it.If not, feel free to remove it http://www.ravico.com/ST/models/MRPAINT-ColorChart.pdf It stops at MRP-295 so it's outdated but quite useful anyway
  8. I have it home. I saved it the minute i saw it. I'll scan it and upload it tonight, unless someone is quicker than me
  9. Poor in quantity but certainly not in quality. that L-39 looks gorgeous
  10. I made a side by side comparison a few years ago and maybe you can get a few information about the revell single seater in there: https://reddogsmodels.wordpress.com/2012/06/18/132-ef-2000-revelltrumpeter-comparison-side-by-side-report/ Out of memory, the APU was really bad. The intake are a mess but you know that already. For the rest It build like a eurofighter and you can turn it into a nice model: Here is the conclusion I came up with at the time: To compare both I scored some items, the low scores of the revell column may provide more information about where I felt the Revell kit came short Hope that helps - it's pretty personnal and in no way am I a eurofighter expert.
  11. Yep, this I knew. I wondered how the pilot would see the amber ones though as you can't from dead astern. But them being cleared to contact, it doesn't matter Mine will be green, just need to figure out a bright enough paint.
  12. Thank you Timmy that's quite valuable information and knowing that i can see the purpose of these marks no contact and 5 marks visible, the first out of the reel Contact and obviously the closer to the reel is just visible inside one mark every 10 feet seems spot on, so i need to have 4 marks visibles on my setup, the fifth being Inside the reel
  13. YEp, nt a chance i'll miss the day and I can't wait to see your Viking !! I have a small detail bothering me. I know the KA-6D reel hose is about 50 feet in length and the drogue is about 26 inches. it seems there are kind of distance markers on the hose. visible as yellowed white on the picture below. Would any one know how they are spaced? My best guess is every 10 feet but i have seen some other pictures suggesting otherwise?
