    New, clean topic: HB B-24 Test Shot Photos

    How much, and where, do you put enough weight to keep this thing on its nose wheel?!?

    Question Re: Trumpeter Mustang Mk III

    Well, I'm sorry if I offended anybody with my opinion of the kit. I'm still going to go ahead and build it, though, because that's what we do with kits...

    Question Re: Trumpeter Mustang Mk III

    Brad, Currently working on this kit, and it includes both canopies. For what it's worth, the Aires resin cockpit fits great (unlike other Aires offerings), but I haven't attempted to fit the resin wheel bay yet. I think this kit gets a bad rap, but we'll see how it pans out. So far, so good, though! What are you doing for markings?

    Aires Cockpit Fit Issues???

    Just have to pick and choose. Slapped an Aires resin cockpit into my Trumpeter P-51B today and it fits great, but I also haven't attempted the wheel well, yet. I may only bat .500 on this kit. That size difference between the resin and plastic pit is rather substantial, though. Not sure I'd be that brave. . .

    Heck, I'd be happy if all he did were corrected turrets, and maybe minor conversion sets (ERCO turret PB4Y-1, or British Liberator rear turrets, to name a couple)

    Best F-4G Conversion

    I have some of the GT Resin sets for the Revell kit for sale at a steep discount, if anyone is interested. Please PM me if you'd like to look at getting them. Thanks! -Daniel S. Westminster, CO US of A

    Are the Hasegawa P40 kits really ill fitting?

    The tail parts fit just fine, they are just split on a vertical panel line that doesn't exist, so that requires filling. The P-40E/K windows also require a bit more work, for the same reason; the parts are split on panel lines that don't exist. Does it require a little extra work? Absolutely. Does it fit poorly? Only if you make it fit poorly. I've built four of the 1/32 kits and have two more in the stash. Great kit, just difficult to find (unless you want an E). Just my two cents.
  8. My AD-5 landed today, and all I can say is WOW! Get off your butts and order one of these gems. Any idea when the Caracal sheet will be released? I'm really itching to build a Naval Reserve AD-5.

    Next Group Build, starting June 1st will be...

    Why not, I'll join in with an Fw.190A-6 night fighter.
  10. They won't be giving the kit away, though, and the E13A is a pretty big airplane. The price might sting just a tad.

    Quick question (maybe) about BF 110-E2 schemes

    AIMS decals also makes a set that contains three similar E schemes, but at least they aren't desert schemes. It's the Bf.110 Stab decal set.

    F4U-1D Decals?

    My brother had the idea of doing a naval reserve sheet, with the A-1E Skyraider, F4U Corsair, F6F Hellcat, and F8F Bearcat, too.

    F4U-1D Decals?

    Shamelessly hoping you're considering doing a sheet for the new Tamiya Corsair, and also shamelessly going to put in a request for a post-war, Naval Reserve option: http://www.wardrawings.be/Modern/Site/Air/USA/Fighters/FG-1D_Corsair.htm Please, pretty please?
  14. Folks, Title says it all. I have the Hasegawa 1/32 P-47M in the stash and am not wild about the two marking options included in the kit, and would like to build a different bird. Does anyone make markings for the two-tone blue over natural metal schemes? Thanks in advance for any info you can give, Google was a little confusing to me. -Daniel S. Westminster, CO
  15. I vote for a Naval Reserve marking option, in overall GSB with the orange fuselage stripes. Just my two cents!
