  1. An update! A company called 3DPM has launched 3D printed ladders for both the F-105D and a pair for the F-105G. They are available direct or via Ebay (put 1/32 F-105 ladder into the search box). I have a pair on order and will report back on their quality and fit. Cheers BHH
  2. According to both Morgan and Shacklady's excellent Spitfire book and the allspitfirepilots.org website, EP706 had a "B" wing, so the Hobby Boss kit is perfectly fine to use a basis.
  3. To just correct you, the Hobby Boss Spit Vb Trop kit definitely gives the chin scoop - in fact you get the option of 2, the large Volkes filter exactly as in the profile above and the smaller Aboukir filter. The kit also gives the option of clipped wings and full span wings.
  4. Don't think it ever existed. On Ebay, someone sells a 1/32 Albatros W.4 conversion set to use on a Roden Albatros D.I kit.
  5. DK Decals DKD32009 has an option for one of Beurling's many Spitfires on Malta. Not certain about the Seafire, the HobbyBoss Spitfire Vb Trop is probably the best option.
  6. My current top 10 in 1/32 scale (in order of want): 1. Boulton Paul Defiant I 2. Fokker G.1a 3. Fairey Battle 4. Douglas TBD-1 Devastator 5. Armstrong Whitworth FK.8 6. Bristol Beaufort I 7. Blackburn Skua 8. Mignet Pou-du-Ciel ("Flying Flea") 9. Fairey Fulmar 10. Bristol Blenheim I
  7. Hi everyone. Could anyone tell me if a pair of ladders for the Trumpeter 1/32 F-105G Thud are available from any company? These could be traditionally moulded or 3D printed, I guess. Thanks in advance for your help. Cheers BHH.
  8. Andy I already have these leading edge slats, thanks. It is the flaps at the rear of the wing that I have been asking about.
  9. Thanks L.H., I will go ahead and build without lights as you suggest. I will also check out the book you suggest.
  10. Thanks for the updates guys. I came across a photo of a 110 with dropped flaps (actually on the cover of Ron Mackay's book "Messerschmitt Bf110: the Luftwaffe's Fighter-Destroyer in World War II") and so am determined to make one soon. Will probably have to chop and create as you suggest, Rick.
  11. Hi everyone. Does anyone know if any AM company make a set of resin flaps to fit the 1/32 Dragon / Revell Messerschmitt Bf110 models? I know that the corresponding slats are available from Master Casters but cannot find any flaps in my searches. Failing this, has anyone tried to convert the kit wings to show dropped flaps? How easy is it and any issues to watch out for? Many thanks BHH
  12. Hi everyone. I'm soon to start building the 1/32 Azur kit of the Caudron (in France flown by a Polish pilot). One thing puzzles me; I have scoured every photo and reference I can find, including photos of the Caudron under restoration in Finland, but I cannot find the location of the wingtip lights. I find it hard to believe a combat aircraft in 1940 did not have them so can anyone give me any advice, or a link to any reference showing them? Thanks BHH
  13. Thanks for this info, estrooper, I have just e-mailed them now! Cheers!
  14. Hi everyone Does anyone have the now OOP 1/32 decal set from Dutch Decals for RAF Fighters? If you have a part-used sheet, I would like to purchase the decals for the option for the 19 Squadron Mustang IV KM272 QV-V, named Dooleybird. I will meet your price and postage to the UK. Many thanks BHH
