  1. Hi Derek, Swiss MK66s had a slightly different seat version, and it was black.
  2. Thanks! Yes the seats come with belts (one resin piece)
  3. Hi, I've used Gunze grey-blue RLM76 for mine - It's a good match I think. see here
  4. I used the QuickBoost engine (with Trumpeter magnetos) on my Haseg P-47 - fit was ok as far as I remember.
  5. If I have to re-scribe I use stretched sprue glued with extra thin cement. Much easier to sand and scribe than CA. Tamiya specific tools are the best.
  6. Hi Guys, Slowly but surely progressing. The Aires MK10 tornado seats have been "pimped" to better match the Hawk version. Plastic card, wires, and the sides from the kit seats and I called it a day. With a coat of Mr Hobby black surfacer I spare you the struggle to get a smooth intake duct. I decided to close the fuselage before painting the cockpit - It is wide enough to allow it. I have added parts form the eduard interior set and a few plastic bits. I made masks with the Silhouette for the instru
  7. Ouch, that is more than 3.5x what I paid for mine. Crazy.
  8. Indeed, and other differences such as landing gear and gear bay doors. It is a good base for a F-16a, as well. By the way, last year I also found two 1/32 Hasegawa F-16a for 30EUR each.
  9. Scored this for about the same price as the block 50 version...
  10. It is a delight to fly, so light, smooth and precise. Visibility forward is indeed very bad, especially with the Lycoming engine - nothing a very slight forward slip can't solve, though!
  11. I fly the Jungmann, which is pretty similar to the Tiger Moth in terms of design, and yes we fly it from the back seat when solo for a matter of CG. On the Jungmann you have to pull the stick full aft to land it 3 points. Not sure a 3 point would still be feasible if flown alone from the front seat.
