    Hmm, let's see........... could it be airplanes?

  1. After some 69 years, I found the NCA DC3 model of the plane My dad took me on when I was two years old, and there was only one model in the World. It is being sent to my house along with an actual photo of the real plane. As we were boarding, a class of school children had come to see the plane, but I was more excited over the school bus.
  2. That’s just it. They still say it is a J, but when I first saw it, it was an H. My favorite multi engine planes were always the B-24, Halifax lll, Do-17, Bf110, P-38, and the Lockheed Hudson.
  3. Maybe Pheon Decals knew of the release which is why they are planning to release a set of more than 200 Dr1 decals.
  4. The BR.1 Camel IS the chase plane and Brown’s last combat plane. As a duelist, it doesn’t make sense, since Brow really fires out of range and desperation to save his friend. The Baron never even reacted to Brown’s attack, having been mortally injured by the Aussie gunner.
  5. It was the FAA that put the brakes on the flying car, not the manufacturer.
  6. Just use Elmer’s glue all for the kit clear parts. When the correct parts are available, use water to remove the old, making it easier to replace.
  7. A few years ago I saw and flew in the last flying B-24. On the side of the port fuselage it said, “Made at Willow Run Detroit Michigan”. This would make it a B-24 H. But last year, I again saw the same B-24, but the Willow Run inscription was missing and the owners insisted this was the original Witchcraft which was a B-24J. Since I’d like to make a 1/32 scale of it, what really is this plane? If it isn’t the original Witchcraft, what was it originally? When I flew in it it definitely was an H, which means it wasn’t the original Witchcraft. I want a model of the plane I flew in.
  8. Whether odd or even serial numbers determined whether the paint outside the masks were painted light or dark. Spits were always factory or repair depot painted, whereas Hurricanes were repaired and repainted by the Squadron mechanics. Also dirt had a lot to do with aircraft of any Squadron looking different in a photo, even if they all were painted the same.
  9. Oops, that X on my key pad is actually the one at fault.
  10. Talking about empty promises, what ever happened to Trumpeter’s promise to release all of the Century Series of jets at least a decade ago, this also included the Voodoo, which anyone living in the 50’s fell in love with, and it wasn’t just the name. It was a beautiful jet flying over, or just sitting on the ground.
  11. I’m hoping for a Duelist B36 and Turpolev TU95, LoL! Actually, I’ve never seen anything more beautiful than a F4J Phantom ll next to a F14A Tomcat, both done in the gull gray tops and white undersides or a F101A Voodoo next to a F104C Starfighter, both in shinny bare metal.
  12. Especially if they allow the engine louvers to have replacement screens.
  13. There are an awful lot of WWl planes. I’d say at the rate WnWs is going, it’ll take about 30 years.
  14. Actually Roden has only a SPAD XVll. I’d like to see some of the others, like the SPAD Xl, Xll, and Xlll, although the HC Xlll is still available on Evilbay.
