  1. Grand Phoenix released a cockpit set years ago: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/grand-phoenix-32005-cockpit-interior--188714 Not sure how necessary it is as the Trumpy cockpit is pretty good and the cockpit opening is such that you can't see much in there anyway. One item I didn't see listed on the scalemates page was the Archer Fine Transfers F4F instrument & placards set: https://www.archertransfers.com/AR32008.html
  2. "Kuniomi Nagamatsu won the 1971 race driving a Mitsubishi Colt F2000" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_Grand_Prix
  3. Another suggestion: Mitsubishi got into auto racing back in the mid -60's. Maybe you could find some inspiration here? https://www.mitsubishicars.com/who-we-are/history
  4. I can only assume you had the initial release, as the revised version (and the subsequent F4F-3 kits) is/are pretty damn good.
  5. Are we talking about Trumpy's original F4F or the retooled version? IMO the latter is the best Wildcat released in any scale. http://kits.kitreview.com/f4f432reviewbg_2.htm
  6. "The display bases are constructed from durable, hard wearing 3mm Foamex board, a rigid, weatherproof plastic, printed with the latest odourless latex ink onto laminated matt vinyl for near photographic quality, giving a permanent and waterproof finish which unlike paper products will not fade, lift or bubble."
  7. This might be of interest: https://www.ima-usa.com/products/original-japanese-wwii-mitsubishi-a6m-zero-propeller-named-usn-bring-back?variant=19400221032517 "This propeller is solid aluminum construction and is approximately 54 inches long and 10.5 inches at its widest point. One point of note is that the reverse side of the prop is painted brown. James Lansdale, a noted authority on Japanese WW2 aircraft color and markings, has started that "mid 1943 Mitsubishi started painting factory propellers brown. Prior to that, Mitsubishi painted the reverse side of the props only, and that color was brown, not black."
  8. I have this kit in my stash, looking forward to this.
  9. Thanks again to Gewher 43, and Merry Xmas to all.
  10. Good point, I definitely wouldn't give anyone over there my cc info.
