  1. Anyone notice the tropical filter on the sprue in those shots. North Africa build here I come. This will complete my Hurricane needs. As an aside, I did a IIC with Grey Matters conversion out of the PCM kit a number of years ago in SEA camo.
  2. Eduard P-38 external set includes I think six of them.
  3. I have started mine, and I am very impressed. Pretty simple build in my opinion. Have only added seatbelts to this point. Paint is on, but on hold with doing markings. Waiting, hopefully, for some aftermarket decals.
  4. Pardon me if this has already been mentioned, but what will be the cost be here in US?
  5. Waiting to judge when the kit is released. As with any kit “some modeling skills required”. Some have more than others. Just saying.
  6. Man, SeaFury, Mc-202, Hornet, and now this. I swear I haven’t passed on. It seems so many dreams are coming true. Now, if we could also get a good P-51B
  7. I built the Hobbycraft kit with some Fisher details added some time ago. Doesn’t look too bad, BUUUT I could perhaps be convinced by this kit to move on. Bring it on !!
  8. Lotsa great color schemes for this bird!!!
  9. I doubt it would be resin for £67. I’m sure someone will find out soon. Not me- just to clarify.
  10. Does anyone have any idea whether someone will be doing an aftermarket sheet for the ICM YAK-9 kits?
  11. I built one of some time ago. If I remember correctly, correcting the fit of spinner to nose contour was the worst issue. Fairly easily corrected.
  12. Many of the Folgores had tan with green mottle/ squiggles on them or vice versa- much easier to paint. Access to Ali d’Italia book will help with camo schemes.
  13. Nice work on this kit. Looks like a very nice kit to build overall.
  14. Agree. Not many issues for me when I built it.
  15. Any news regarding the issue of this kit.
  16. Never mind gang. After looking more closely at this scheme, I have decided I can do it myself. At least that’s what I’m telling myself. Thanks for looking anyway. G
  17. Does anyone know if there is a decal sheet in 1/32 scale coming that might include his -9M/T markings. This aircraft has been included on Foxbot sheets in smaller scale. Trying to do this bird. I will make my own masks if needed, but markings look somewhat complicated.
  18. I have ordered the Montex mask set. Thanks for the info. I'll probably be able to use the insignia stars- depending on their size. The victory star decal should also work out well. Maybe someone will issue a decal set after I get this done
  19. Ray, thanks for the offer, but I will go with getting the Montex sheet. The stars will end up being consistent that way. Again, thanks. Will post results later.
  20. massimotessitori.altervision.org/soviet it is under Yakovlev Yak-9 profiles by Michael Sekula Yak-9M P Y Golovachev Red stars with white outline and I count 31 of them. it is a neat scheme in my opinion. I thank you for looking into this.
  21. I am working on the ICM Yak-9, a wonderful kit by the way, and I want to do Golovachev's bird as found on Massimo Tessatori's site. However, I thought I had a variety of victory stars in my spares box, and I found that I have none. Does anyone make a decal sheet with a variety of these victory stars?
  22. Very sorry to hear about the Me-410. It would likely have been a good seller. I built the resin kit and was quite satisfied. But mind you, it was as they say, "some modeling skills necessary". Thanks for your efforts HPH.
