  1. Any comments to the crossection of the radome? To my eyes, it looks like an ellipse that has the long axis off the centreline (think Spitfire wing) rather than a true ellipse? From pics, the nose looks a bit too flat and straight in profile to my eyes...

    F-20 Tigershark in 1/32?

    it probably won't matter much so far down the intake, but I would think the inner walls would converge to a sharp point rather than a very blunt one as that would create flow separation and turbulence?

    F-20 Tigershark in 1/32?

    I'd like to see an F-20 kit - particularly the first prototype in the red and white scheme. Jens

    Rules of the Road

    Having an abysmal track record om 0% completion for groupbuilds, I may still be tempted to join this one. Not quite decided yet... Candidates are Tamiya Mosquito, Tamiya Tomcat, KH F-5E or Hasegawa F-18.

    VF-1 Tomcat decals!!

    What is the serial number of the gull gray and white aircraft? Would it have the 7-hole mid breech panel and early beaver tail? Jens

    Speaking of Hasegawa.... What's up?

    Tamiya can certainly inject some new life into their F-16 by releasing a standard P&W powered variant as well as the two-seater... Jens

    CORKTIP 632

    Any more progress on this David? Jens

    1/18 P51C Mustang "Lopes Hope the 3rd"

    No detail seems to be too small to be a model in it's own right... Jens
  9. Picked up an F-5E on Saturday, and went over to Aires and as if an F-5E cockpit was on their radar. Negative. Don't know how much was down to the language barrier or them pretending not to know what's coming... Jens

    1/32 Early F-15B Eagle - 58TTW

    The seats in the Revell kit ARE Escapac seats, not ACES II... And all gear legs are fragile. Bought and built this kit when it came out in the first half of the 80s, and the undercarriage legs were the first to go. Jens
  11. I see that Curt ("Netz") hasn't visited since 2008, so PM'ing him may not give any results. Would be nice to get some copies of the F-15 wheels I mastered for them some five or six years ago...:( Jens

    Revell 1/350 Tirpitz

    The profile of the bow looks a little off for Tirpitz - it looks more like the profile of the Bismarck that had a more concave shape and a shorter length over the waterline. Tirpitz was slighty more vertical (i.e. longer over the waterline) and not as curved. Started modifying the Tamiya kit, and from memory the difference would be around 5 mm in 1:350. Jens
