  1. First, let me say the Hurricane has not held a lot of fascination for me. However, that doesn't mean I don't have plenty of books on it in my library. .So, after the tutorial I got earlier in this thread on Hurricane props (who thought it could be so complicated ), I opted to spend a Saturday afternoon reading up on the Hurricane. Geez... Now, I am left with even more questions! So, I read that Gloster didn't use standard colors for the national insignias on their Hurricane builds. WTH? What did they use and why? . Does it need to be this complicated? Mark Proulx
  2. Well, I guess I just got schooled on Hurricane spinners/propellers Thanks Troy! Now to try and digest all this! Mark Proulx
  3. Anyone know if different propeller options are planned? If not, I'm sure the aftermarket people will step up. Mark Proulx
  4. Looks like lots of effort put into parts layout to ensure a number of Hurricane variants in the future. Nice! A Mk I feasible as I see the two fuselage halves are placed in a stand alone separate tree. Mark Proulx
  5. Well, received my copy in the mail already! Like other books in the series, a worthy investment. I found the section on the Type 464 modification to be particularly enlightening. Mark Proulx
  6. IMHO, Revell has a tendency to release "less popular" versions first, so a Mk I likely in the future. Of course, this is based on the premise that a Mk II would be in less demand than a Mk I if they available to purchase at the same time. Mark Proulx
  7. Looks great! Can I ask why the new tail section? Is there a problem with the kit part? In addition, do you plan on creating F-4 Phantom pylons for the 32nd scale Tamiya kit? Mark Proulx
  8. I guess the great thing about the early Tomcat kit is that the cockpit panels are void of detail allowing for easier application of aftermarket 3D decals. Mark Proulx
  9. The sad thing is that people want answers right now. They are not prepared to wait a lengthy time for an official report. One need only to watch media after an airplane crash to be bombarded with "experts" giving their reasoning for the crash. This satisfies the need within the public sphere for an immediate cause. BTW, this isn't an anti-media rant, just my observation as a retired airline pilot. By the time the FAA/NTSB report is released, the news cycle will have moved on to some other horrific incident. However, as a professional, I understand the process and realize there are many causes to a crash, many not immediately obvious. The PROPER thing to do is let the investigators do their job so that we learn from this event and apply regulation as required to prevent it from happening again. The fact is that aviation has become safer in a large part because of the accidents of the past that we learned from.
  10. G-Factor did a set of 32nd gear legs for the 105 in solid brass. Probably worth tracking down a set IMHO. Mark Proulx
  11. Gonna take a lot of weight in the nose to counteract the additional resin weight in the tail. Are you considering brass undercarriage for this? This thing is gonna be heavy and I will be watching with interest! Mark Proulx
  12. I would like to chime in here and say this book a real must for any 109 enthusiast. It should be a component in any reference library. Mark Proulx
