  1. what about Banfield Hansa brandenburg KDW flying boat against Baracca Nieuport 11, or a FBA flying boat ? even if it takes some years...
  2. If you could get me a walkaround of the pilot helmet, would be great
  3. Many thanks Thierry ! No worries, we made 2 poses of belgian mirage pilot sunday PM, and did them a second time as I noticed the G-suit was in a wrong position. Better late as too late....
  4. It's a dream to visit the nats one day, but coming with my figures is realy not worth the investment. Shipping costs from France to US is only around euro 10.00
  5. Hi Roselies model show in one week now, we'll be there !
  6. But we are looking for a guy, 1m75, 70 kg, tom cruise like (or not) for a scan of belgian pilot at Roselies model show in 2 weeks...
  7. I had some contact for some, but unfortunately nothing happened...but who knows ?
  8. Super-etendard : first flight in 1974, so probably not in service before 1976 : other boots, other G-suit, other helmet, other mask, so the answer is no. But for an etendard IV, or an early french crusader, will need to add two pockets on the G-suit and replace visor mechanism by straps
  9. Hello Our second french Mirage pilot is now done, shown stepping out of the cockpit. Like the first one, he has the 1969-1972 era equipment: Note that the ladder needs to be placed a bit forward, itis too much back as it is Cheers Norbert
  10. The difficulty is to find the vest with the right pouches, if somebody can help...
  11. Hello And what if I tell you I met Miss Santa in the night of december the 24th ? cheers Norbert
  12. I heard they should have a parachute, anybody has more informations ?
  13. can somebody confirm the french topowl helmet is the same as the USMC one ?
  14. Now to find a heavy walkaround of the pilot helmet...
  15. Hi Added the HGU-4/P standard issue sunglasses version to the tomcat pilots, just a little detail... cheers Norbert
  16. Hi now we go close to 50 years back : here is a mirage III pilot from the 69s to the 72s era, maybe 66s to 74s. I made a colourized render this time, as they are hard to find on the net and here with my last century Heller kit A+ Norbert
  17. So, back to the french air force and its beautifull mirage 2000 and Panther helicopters... Next figure is a SEA army fuel service truck crewman pulling fuel hose. Hose is not provided, but of course you get the fuel nozzle in hand. cheers Norbert
  18. Roselies : 2nd - 3rd of february next year
  19. Hi Ben, hope you will go to Roselies show too, can't go to Putte, sadly. Was very nice to see your progress and how you went through all difficulities. BTW, hope to see your A/S32-A31A cast in resin. cheers
  20. I push them in that way, and will push more when I meet them beginning next year. It seems that 1/32 is close to inexistant in Russia, ICM just releasing his first 1/32 kits with small size aircrafts (I-16, I-153,Bü-131), Zvezda having none. And ICM is even not in Russia, but in Ukraine...
  21. Hi, Moving from USA to Russia... Two russian airforce ground crews, in summer working uniform (blue or sand), one pulling a munitions cart, the eother one depicted as an officer, but, except the grade badge, outfits are the same. The cart comes from Advanced Modelling,and I'm pushing them to make it in 1/32 too. excuse for the picture quality, the bad luminosity these rainy days do not help. Cheers Norbert
  22. Hi Latest from Reedoak are 2 US Navy fighter pilots walking with helmet bags. They depict 70s to 90s era pilots, and can be used for exemple with early Tomcats or Navy Phantoms. There will be version with or without sunglasses for both pilots. cheers Norbert
  23. And for those interested, there will be samples of Reedoak figures on display somewhere in the french corner at Telford (but no sales). A friend kindly took them with him
