  1. I find the current trend to colorizing black and white images to be disturbing. Colorized photos are OK as long as they are identified as such within the image, such as the above. If not, colorized photos can easily become the primary new reference, especially to those less knowledgeable. What happens if those colors are represented incorrectly? I have seen that happen on too many "modified" photos. I would rather live with black and white originals and base my color assumptions on knowledge and experience. How many colorized photos do you see in quality historical publications? Not many I would suggest. However, one can't argue the impact of color imagery. Mark Proulx
  2. Eagle Editions sells lots of stuff for the 109, including a resin spinner. Mark Proulx
  3. Anyone ever release an accurate resin cockpit for the Trumpeter 1/32nd scale A-6A Intruder? I got the seats (Thanks Harold!), but what about the rest of the cockpit? One would think that it would be a natural for the aftermarket companies given the size and openness of that position . Mark Proulx
  4. I was eager for the HK kit when it came out. Some very progressive injection molding. However, once pouring over the kit, some fundamental shape issues left me un-impressed... I can live with minor dimension issues, but there is no excuse basic shape discrepancies. That just speaks to poor research. Hard to excuse when there are so many examples available to be examined. For that reason, I took a pass on their two-stage Merlin attempt... Mark Proulx
  5. Looks like KMC (likely OOP) and GT Resins. I know this won't change your build but the information might be helpful in the future for you and others. Mark Proulx
  6. Out of curiosity, any resin aftermarket pylons available? A number of Phantoms photographed with the outboard pylons fitted, but nothing attached. Mark Proulx
  7. FWIW, the Graf conversion set stated as available shortly in the review is currently listed in stock at Hannants. HTH Mark Proulx
  8. Many of you who read any kind of aviation history books, especially Luftwaffe related, will recognize Jim's name. It was widely seen in book credits and under published photos. For years he has assisted publishers/authors, me included, with the his period photos. He amassed the images over many years and was happy to share his efforts with us. Sadly, at 79 years young, he recently passed away. The publishing industry, those who do historical research and friends will miss him and his contribution to us all... Mark Proulx
  9. Well, I was among the first to criticize the HB effort, especially with the turret fiasco (seams). However, I really have to give credit where credit is due and you have provided us with a great presentation to this kit and show what is feasible. Thanks for sharing and great job! Mark Proulx
  10. Nice clean job on a 418 Mosquito... Mark Proulx
  11. This project ever finished? Mark
  12. Title says it all. Does anyone do a 1/32nd scale resin conversion to create an early Bf 109 (A thru D)? I believe there was in the past but I can't remember it... Mark Proulx
  13. Yes, this one of two 109 F's that were modified for Galland. The other had guns mounted in the wings. Mark Proulx
  14. So....anyone compared the 32nd scale kits yet???? Andrea, BTW, and my opinion only (others welcome to disagree and some will), accuracy counts for lots. I can forgive a millimeter here or there, but the additional fuselage length depicted here is well outside my comfort zone. Mark Proulx
