  1. 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.
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. Ah, I missed that detail. And, as you say, probably one of those details Trumpeter missed too.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Iain, many thanks for taking the time and trouble! The conversion back to the -1B indeed looks doable, think I will go ahead and give it a go. As you say, the -2 canopy may well be usable (as is) on the -1B, will have to check my references. I will await any further post but thanks again, Iain!
  8. Just found an additional snippet of info as it seems the -2 featured an oil cooler door on the lower cowling. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/obscureco-aircraft-obs48002-grumman-bearcat-f8f-2--177240 But perhaps Trumpeter never bothered to modify their -2 to include the door? Otherwise I assume it might be easy to backdate the cowl by deleting the door.
  9. Yes Iain, I can indeed wait until the weekend. Many thanks for taking the time! I will await your info on the different boxings. Thanks again!
  10. Ah, I see. The taller fin alone of the -2 makes me drop this idea. Better to just get the proper -1B. Thanks for the info!
  11. As I believe the basic plastic is the same, can a -1B be made from the -2? Just curious, as I understand that only the armament differed between the two versions. So a set of aftermarket items for the -1B specific cannon barrels might do the trick? Thanks for any input!
  12. Great to hear from you, Alek! Good to know you're still around. I may need a few custom masks, will get contact you soon in that case.
  13. I have tried their website for a while now, but still down "...due to maintenance". And seeing the previous topic I start to wonder what has happened.
