    WW2 Chinese pilot research

    Yeah, its a tough one this one. The boss is going to grab all the archived information from Taiwan later in the year but Ive been digging around with what I have without too much luck. Problem is that since the communist regime took hold there's no information on the nationalists from there. Ill report back though as its going to be a great story, I can feel it in my waters!
  2. Hi Guys, Long time, no see! Ill have to fill you all in on the adventures of Coolie sometime soon. Im doing some research for my new boss on her grandfather, a fairly high ranking Air Force officer for the Chinese nationalists. Any ideas where to look? Books, websites, people etc etc... Standby for the gory details Coolie

    Painting canopies.

    I use Parafilm for mine. Stretch it over the canopy and then cut along the frame edge before painting. Works very well, although time consuming...although which methods dont? http://cgi.ebay.com/32x4inch-PARAFILM-MODE...4QQcmdZViewItem

    MDC has announced the price of Radu's Ki-61

    So I'm not allowed to disagree without copping 17 pages of barely coherent nonsense and then an insult? ok... Matty, why are you still at work? I know you were going nuts while in recovery but this is crazy.

    I think you are mistaking "Happy with your purchase" for "Bargain" Jay...If you think that you are happy to pay the money even though its a bit much...then its not a Bargain

    170 bucks before decals & shipping! Come on, thats not a bargain...might be the cheapest the manufacturer can do but you cant give that the thumbs up as a steal.

    Minimum 130 bucks AUD is a bargain??? if you buy any aftermarket stuff this is going to go through the roof!
