  1. Nice. I'm bit wary of Italeri's track record in 32nd scale but if they do release a Gr.1 in the future I might be tempted to get one.
  2. Ah, the pipes are paired on the upper left side only. That may account for my confusion when looking at photos and drawings. Thanks!
  3. Thanks Dennis and Rick! Very much appreciated info. Rick I may send you a message with my email for any photos you can share. In my references I have noticed that there indeed seem to be confusion as to which type has paired exhausts or not. For example, the Mushroom publication containing just drawings have missed that the Type 24 has the paired exhausts also on the lower fuselage. I just now tried to make both of the lower pipes (C15+C17) fit in their opening but it was tight so I figure some enlargement of the hole needs to be done. Rick, the method you used w
  4. Link to photo of instruction So, should parts C15 and C17 go through the same opening in the lower fuselage?
  5. I really like this kit but must say that the instruction leave me with a few questions regarding the exhaust pipe arrangement. I have been looking in my (limited) book references and on the web but finding good photos of how the exhaust pipes should go is difficult. Should the two lowest pipes on each side come out together through the same opening? Looking at photos have me somewhat confused... Thanks in advance for any advice!
  6. I see, and your windscreen looks very good as you have done it. Great work! And yes, I understand the work needed to modify the interior bits, but it still looks like a manageable solution. Many thanks for the overhead photo of the nose, that clarifys the modification needed. Excellent stuff!
  7. Good info, thanks! I may try to reduce the width of the forward top fuselage by at least 2 mm instead, because where I'm sitting anything sounds easier than having to rebuild the windscreen.
  8. Many thanks Alain! I see that I have some work cut out for me if I want to make a more accurate 406. Will have to ponder this project some more...
  9. Anyone know how to get in touch with Gustave regarding his build of this beautiful MS 406? I have tried direct messaging and seeing that he was last online here back in 2011 I don't have high hopes for getting a reply. Just curious about exactly he modified the windscreen and created the glass portions. Thanks for any help!
  10. Excellent work on a very interesting subject. I have loose plans on doing the same with my Tamiya P-51D so following this with interest now that I found your WIP.
  11. Ah yes, the seats would be prime contenders for replacements. I will follow your progress with great interest. :) I will look and ask around for the Matchbox/Revell Lysander some more, but otherwise I guess eBay is the only way to go...
  12. Great stuff! Really like the 3D printed engine detail. As you mention possible more printing, do you have plans for anything in the cockpit? Having today completed the Dora Wings 72nd scale Lysander I have just gotten interested in the good old Matchbox/Revell kit in my preferred scale of 1/32. But this kit really is a bit hard to find these days...
  13. Ah, I missed that detail. And, as you say, probably one of those details Trumpeter missed too.
  14. Hmm, after posting yesterday I spotted a French -1B and it seemed to have the -2 canopy. Perhaps it was a retrofit? i will have to look around some more... Edit: Found this photo that I borrowed from https://wwiiafterwwii.wordpress.com.
  15. Looking at the -1B canopy on the above site it seems as that part also has the extra frame, so virtually identical to the -2 canopy? Or perhaps I am confusing things.
