  1. The Bf 109G-6AS cowl has the refined cowl similar to a G-10 or K-4. So, you can't build a G-6AS from a standard G-6 kit without a whole new nose. HTH, D
  2. Serial 44-11161 falls into the first batch of 200 P-51D-5s built at the Dallas plant. Production blocks by serial number can be found here: http://www.mustangsmustangs.com/p-51/production Keep in mind that ALL surviving P-51D-5s in service were eventually fitted with the dorsal fillet mod, and the last 200 or so were modified at depot level prior to delivery. HTH, D
  3. The slats were not spring-loaded. They were free-floating, thus fell open while on the ground or reacted to airflow pressure in flight. The link to the video again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2Kc6NRwSic HTH, D
  4. Yes. I don't know. Someone with the kit should be able to tell. From the leading edges to trailing edges of both, yes. This post: https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/77661-hobby-boss-132-b-24j-initial-observations/&do=findComment&comment=1094949 I did check that previously-posted airfoil drawing's authenticity, and it certainly appears to be 100% correct. HTH, D
  5. For those hoping to correct the cross section of the airfoil, here's what you're up against: Just an FYI post. Images previously posted in this thread were simply combined to show the true airfoil shape superimposed over the kit's parts. D
  6. Like this? Otherwise, a BMW is about as feminine as one can get... D
  7. No, it is not out of scale. The wingspan in 1/32 scale should be 16.0625" (408 mm) and it is exactly that. Full scale wingspan is 42' 10" (13.0556 meters). HTH, D
  8. I hope you're being sarcastic, because the upper line aft of 60% is most definitely "concave". If you're serious, maybe you might try printing it out and putting a ruler across those two points if you're unable to see the curve on your screen. D
  9. Anything for the Revell 1/32 OH-6A would be MOST welcome. D
  10. I don't know where you people shop, but you might be doing something wrong: Tamiya P-51D - https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B004WBBZWA/ref=dp_olp_new_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=new Zoukei Mura P-51D - https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B008X2JG4S/ref=dp_olp_new_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=new Just examples of fairly standard internet pricing for those kits. HTH, D
