  1. Same error here, "error code EX1032". I'm on Win 10 with Google Chrome. The forums do appear when I'm signed in, but the format looks a little different than it did a few days ago. If I'm not signed in, I get error EX1032. Hope this helps.
  2. I was hoping for a Ninak or a D.VII to build for myself. Got there minutes after opening and all sold out. Wow! No worries, I'll spend the money on a 1/32 Tamiya Corsair. Still happy.
  3. Happy to announce a pair of "Spandau" LMG 08/15 machineguns, Model 1917, are now available in 1/28 scale for your classic Revell, Hobby Craft and Kitech Fokker Dr.I Triplane and Fokker D.VII models. Larger scales are possible. Model Monkey catalog of over 2500 products for scale modelers.
  4. I hope to design products for the Airfix 1/24 scale Spitfire in the future. There are several other projects ahead of it in the queue. And thanks for the research help, Shawn!
  5. Good news, early-style bomb racks for P-51 Mustangs and A-36 Apaches is now available in 1/32 scale for P-51A, P-51B, P-51C (Mustang Mk.III) fighters and A-36A attack aircraft. Regarding the SBD-5 radar set, if good, authoritative references are available I will consider adding the set to the research and design queue. Presently, the queue is full through 2021 so I would not be able to get to that project for quite a while. But thanks, Bill, for the recommendation!
  6. Hi Ron, The aft station is still in research. There's still not enough information about the real station to be able to complete it. The design for floor and the AI radar set is done. There are several components to the radar set. I've a good idea where in the station the various components go (all over the place). What I don't know is how the equipment was fit to the aircraft (mounts etc.) or enough about the ammo bins' to design them, specifically about their feed chutes. I'm still hopeful we'll get the information we need to complete the design sooner rather tha
  7. Thanks Dennis and James! The bombs racks are my design. Peter paid for the research and design work. The metal work and attention to detail on his 1/18 scale models is simply breathtaking. And his Airscale photo-etch products and decal sets are thoroughly researched and brilliantly produced. Highly recommended. I regret to report printing designs by others is not a service I offer. But for those seeking a 3D printing company to print your own designs, I recommend Collapse Industries of Florida (click here). Owner is Kirk Kirkland. Kirk owns several diff
  8. Hi Mark, Thanks for your compliments! Regarding a P-51B/C conversion set, I regret that there is no present plan to produce one in the near future. The early rack design was originally intended for Peter Castle ("Airscale") for use on his amazing 1/18 scale P-51C "Hope's Lope", presently nearing completion. Peter graciously encouraged me to release the design in smaller scales for other modelers. Thank you, Peter! I'd like to offer a 1/24 scale P-51B/C conversion, or perhaps just a replacement fuselage. But that is something to consider in the far future.
  9. Here you go, Dennis: happy to announce a set of four 1/32 scale Oxygen Bottles for World War Two- and Korean War-era USAAF, USN and USMC multi-engine aircraft is now available. These bottles were installed aboard many aircraft types including B-17 Flying Fortress, B-24 Liberator, B-25 Mitchell, B-26 Marauder, B-29 Superfortress, A-20 Havoc, A-26 Invader, PBY Catalina, PV1 Ventura, PV2 Harpoon, etc.
  10. Happy to announce a set of early P-51 Mustang / A-36 Apache bombs racks is now available in 1/18 scale and 1/24 scale. This early type of rack is most typically seen on A-36A, P-51A, P-51B and P-51C (Mustang Mk.III) fighters. Some P-51D aircraft may also have been fit with them. The rack could carry a bomb weighing up to 550 pounds (~250 kg) or a drop tank. The models were designed from high-resolution scans of original North American Aviation blueprints. This early rack featured aerodynamically shaped sway braces faired into the top of the rack. Later racks were of
  11. Thanks so much! Maybe the new Model Monkey business slogan will be "Making Tamiya shine since 2014".
  12. Revell's Huey has a special place in my heart, too. Superb helo, Chris! Beautiful finish. For more modern helicopter kits, I just love Academy's new 1/35 AH-1Z "Shark Mouth" Viper. Really nice kit and love the rivet detail. It just looks right.
