  1. Also, does anyone know if the lowback Spitfire ever had a c wing configuration? If so I can just order the Mk.Xvie and swap parts around. Or is there a civilian Mk.Xvi with no guns like a racer or something?
  2. Thanks. Does anyone know who may carry the sprue parts in the US?
  3. I know what I needs to be converted, I just dont know where to find the parts. I have the correct cannon barrels and 50 cal barrels from master, and I can close up the outer ports easily. What I don't know where to find is the gun panel covers. The ones in the Cwing kit have the bulge on the inside and I need them on the outside.
  4. Does anyone know where to track down the E wing panels to help convert the Tamiya IX C wing to an E wing?
  5. Google maps shows it as permanently closed now.
  6. Because the other one sucks. Please let us be happy without being a debby downer for no reason.

    1/32 M117s

    Ordered a set from Videoaviation. Let's see how long it takes to cross the pond. Thank you for pointing me in the correct direction.

    1/32 M117s

    I'm starting a Trump Thud and I'd like to run a fairly heavy M117 loadout. I purchased a few sets of CAM m117s and was immensely disappointed. They casting is horrible, lopsided and full of issues. I said no worries I'll just use the kit ones. Well, theres a hug difference in size between the two. The Trumpeter M117s are much bigger. It looks like the Wolfpack ones are about the same size as the Trumpy ones. How close or not close are the Trumpeter M117s to being correct? If not close, are the Wolfpack ones better, or are there any other options?
  9. Think I'll just go ahead and put mine in the trash. This is remarkable looking.
  10. I've got over half my total flight time in the airframe. From freighters to corporate birds, GE and Garrett engines, and C model through F model. I've wanted for years to build a really nice one. I have almost all the information a guy could want on the airframe, except good dimensional measurements. I even contacted Dassault once to see about getting a good 3 view drawing to work off of but unfortunately they said couldn't be of assistance. Unfortunately Dassault has mostly wiped their hands of the aircraft and does not prefer to work with it. I may be able to talk with my Director of
  11. Here is my Tamiya F-16. I really good friend gave me the kit anand it has been a wonderful reprieve from the world this past month. Only addition is a Quickboost seat and Two Bob's decals. Any F-16 expert could pick it apart but I had a ton of fun with it and I'm quite pleased with it.
  12. Heres my Tamiya F-6D. Nothing special, I just wanted to try Alclad and learn how to work with it for an upcoming build. I didn't forget the wing insignia, this aircraft didn't carry it.
  13. Something to remember as well is a laminar flow wing is not only predicated on an extremely smooth wing surface. Its about the shape of the wing and where the "curve" back down of the airfoil is located along the chord. I've flown a lot of laminar flow wings that were anything but super smooth, and yet they did a perfectly fine job. Yes, smooth helps, but it's not the end all be all of making this wing what it was and is.
