  1. Got the P51 set; normal excellence!!! Highly recommended!! Can't wait for the stuka set!!! Thanks for showing 1\24 some (more!) Love!!! Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  2. Hello Red dog, That is some great work on your B25; awesome job! Thanks for showing me the way to do the carb intakes - beautiful rendition of a complicated part. Do you take commission for decals? I'd like Sally B in metal finish as Ginger Rogers when she flew in LWT's tv series 'We'll Meet Again'. Please let me know if that's something you could help me with. Thanks again! Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  3. I have a pair of HKs 1\32 B 25j Mitchells to do, but both aircraft use the other, boxy\square carb intakes rather than the 'slit' type in the kit: does anyone in the aftermarket do these? I hope you can help! Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  4. I'd like to see them live; 'Hotel Key' is a favourite song on my 'phone! Might be a bit far for me to attend in person, tho! Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  5. Oy vey! Well that is staggeringly good! And those flaps! (Ooooerrr Missus!) Ever thought about adding little servos to make them work? They certainly look like they might! Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  6. You are quite right Markjames! Total brain fart on my account- I will correct that!!! Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  7. https://www.air-shows.org.uk/2023/02/airshow-news-flying-legends-returns-at-leeds-east-airport/ RAF Church Fenton aka East Leeds airport will be the place to be in '23! Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  8. It might be worth extending the antenna post down to the cross piece before you close the fuselage too, I think that is just visible viewing the cockpit. Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  9. To misquote the immortal Spike Milligan " everythings got to be somewhere...! " it is odd it's not with the relevant sprue, tho! Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  10. Ok, the two boomerang looking things are part of the undercarriage system: Google is your friend here!, I think the other part is the optional headrest, which I believe was missed in the instructions. Missed the last one! That does have me stumped; alternative rear view mirror perhaps? Hope that helps ! Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  11. Mrp, Thanks for your excellent reply ( and what superb pictures!) That's a great build you've done, too! I've got Greg's decals (in 1\32 ) - I see you altered the air intake shape to the right shape ( strange no one does these for the B25, in any scale!), for some reason these intimidate me more than the camera nose conversion... thanks for the heads up with regards to the faded paint and the wooden door: I've got a few shots of the fuselage interior but detail is hard to see since it seems this was black! I have found some good exterior pictures in Dilip Satar's books which are a great help though . Thanks again and congratulations on a super build! I hope mine will be as good. Well, I can dream! Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  12. I'd be very interested indeed to have your opinion on the cowling shape in this correction set, as on another forum the shape is described as incorrectly profiled and this is not a cheap correction set! Btw, I'd be wary of buying from this supplier via Ebay; the postage prices are exorbitant and each part is sent separately since the seller refuses to combine postage for multiple purchases ( unlike most eBay sellers) - hopefully not the case if one orders directly from the website ( But I can't say for certain, for although the website promises international delivery, it will not accept the UK as a destination.....odd. Especially since I did buy everything else Resin2detail does for the A26...and it was indeed delivered to the UK. Nothing like being consistent....! Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  13. I have received no response to my messages and the website was not working well at alI for me previously ( and many products are no longer listed), however I just tried again and it seems to be working......BUT, the postage prices are INSANE - €74 to post a £15 part ( 1\24 f6f3 rear cockpit bulkhead). Really? Needless to say that sale didn't happen. It's such a shame as I bought the other Hellcat parts Adriatic produced, and they are excellent ( and I don't recall the postage I paid being such a joke). Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  14. Hello Dennis Thanks for your reply. I'm after the Cheyenne type rear gun position and would like to buy or swap my early 'stinger ' parts ( that's the most pressing requirement for my project), but I'd also be interested in the F nose with windows only, no nose cheek guns and the smooth no guns nose perspex transparency. If you can help with any of those parts it would be great! Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  15. "Does anyone mind if I park this here?" Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
