  1. Mike, the SBD gunner's seat did indeed have a lap belt. Definitely add one. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  2. I agree, but only if the rubber tires are hollow and allow for natural bulging. Most rubber wheels I've experienced are solid, and don't bow out at all unfortunately. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  3. They do make some really, really nice stuff. Will be keeping an eye on this one. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  4. Looking forward to ordering! Thanks for posting prices. Very reasonable. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  5. I sure could use an N canopy, as mine in snapped in half :-/ - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  6. Definitely count me in! I have the older set, and these resin updates will be a welcome edition. Proud Pastor John supporter. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  7. At what point do the discounted prices show up? I am just shy of pulling the trigger, and its still showing the full amount on my cart (early Halb and early Fokker VII). Did I miss the sale, or have I selected two kits that aren't on discount? Not sure how this is all working... - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  8. That's a really great idea I never thought of! I am going to do that, too... how much did each shelf set you back? I have a modestly sized curio cabinet from American Furniture Warehouse. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  9. Tim, I know you were looking for some markings for this build. I have the following two from a Kagero book if you are interested in them at all. I'd be happy to send them to you free or charge: 54268334_1014329878768015_2963998317274464256_n by Dennis SAuter, on Flickr 54728313_365088954095636_1181841795743481856_n by Dennis SAuter, on Flickr 55512193_2266683493571162_3158545672764915712_n by Dennis SAuter, on Flickr 54437011_298737300796098_7821899812755734528_n by Dennis SAuter, on Flickr - Dennis S.

  10. Hannants is showing several upcoming sets for this kit: ED32944 B-24D/B-24J Cockpit Set ED32945 B-24D/B-24J Seatbelts EDJX230 B-24J Window Masks Here's to hoping their cockpit set is better than their recent disappointing set for the Lancaster. Looks like they are set for release at the end of April. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  11. Those wing spar boxes look pretty robust. If not for the rigging, you could, in theory, make the outer wings removable. Like many here, while it's very, very impressive, I'll be passing on this one. Unless I get commissioned to build one, it's just way too big. Sure do hope to see one built some day though. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  12. Thanks Ron! I wasn't sure... was just thumbing through my HK B-25H last night, and saw that super nice Brassin wheel/tire looking back at me, and I thought, "Boy, that sure looks like it could be the right size..." but alas, it is not. Those True Details wheels are absolutely atrocious. They look more like off-road vehicle tires than aircraft tires, and the distance between the wheel hub and the brake assembly is gigantic. Guess I'll be patient and wait for Brassin to (hopefully) release a set dedicated to the HobbyBoss B-24 kits. Perhaps they are waiting for the D to come out so they can get all of us in one fell swoop. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  13. Out of curiosity, what's the size comparison between the B-25 and B-24 nose wheels? The Brassin B-25 wheel set sure is nice... but would it work? - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  14. Most definitely it would. I think this would be the most logical fix using the kit parts themselves. However, you're still stuck with the rather inaccurate turret interior, so you may have to scratch build those bits (or not) to suit your personal preference. If no aftermarket turrets materialize, this will likely be my plan of attack. - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
  15. I do still feel that the best plan of attack, even in this scale, is what Hasegawa did with their 1/72 Liberator kits. Make the base piece in resin, and vacform or clear resin (or, dare I ask, injection mold) the upper portion. Seemed easy enough for them to do it, so why not in our scale? Would definitely leave room for all those accurate innards. Capture1 by Dennis SAuter, on Flickr Capture by Dennis SAuter, on Flickr - Dennis S. Thornton, CO USA
