  1. I for one would buy plastic versions of the Me410 and Ta154, the resin versions of which I already have...
  2. I watched this film recently and was interested to see the Bf 110 that 'Septic', the main character shoots down, is a 'G' variant. In one shot a radar pole is clearly visible on the nose. The film was released in 1952, and I was wondering if anyone might know about this aircraft? Could it be the one that now resides in the RAF Museum at Hendon? The film is well worth a watch, if like me, you like Hurricanes : ))
  3. I have the Me410, which is one of my favourite subjects, very nice kit. It has always puzzled me why HpH chose the version that they did rather than the version with the BK5 cannon?
  4. Regarding the sabotage of slave labour built machinery; during the rebuild of the Maybach engine for Bruce Compton's ( 'Combat Dealers' ) Panther tank, it was found that one of the intake or exhaust valves had a bevelled relief machined into the stem, which would have caused catastrophic failure when the end snapped off.
  5. Thanks for the interest and replies Tony, I'll keep waiting : ))
  6. Hi Tony, thanks, yes I saw that link and posted it in the original post, but having heard about this kit some time ago I was suspicious that perhaps the magazine series never got past issue 7?
  7. Apparently offered by De Agostini as a monthly series build. Has anyone ever seen one in reality? For some unknown reason I have a fascination with this aeroplane, and would would be keen to build a 32nd version. Here are two links from the net, from what I can gather there are 24 issues, but only 7 available? http://mavzolhobby.com/store/deagostini/legend-aviation-scale-132/
  8. Thank you for the great photos! Pardon my ignorance, but why did the RAF clip the blades?
  9. Beautiful, love the paint finish!
  10. Received my sets safely John, first impression; there's a lot of it! Thank you once again for doing this, best regards.
