  1. And hopefully the announcement will be before we have all passed on!
  2. It is Number 10 published in the early nineties.
  3. Spirit in the Sky is excellent but you may need something else for details. The Verlinden Lock on features the RAF F-4 including the J and I found that very useful
  4. This is fantastic work Thierry and is inspiring me to when I start mine on 10 July. One thing I do need to check on my build is whether the Hasegawa MkII wing is the same chord at the wingroot as the Tamiya Fuselage. Will
  5. I am hoping our Lockdown finishes soon as I intend to spend quite a while looking at the Mk1s at Hendon and Kensington. I have always thought that Dzus are slightly raised disks as they reinforce the skin.
  6. Replicating Dzus fastenings has be scratching my head until Archer came out with some.
  7. I could not agree more. Any chance of you having a crack at it?
  8. the problem is the issue with the nose starts basically mid-cockpit rather then being just the radome. The F-105 is so iconic it is a shame that there is no decent kit of it
  9. Good for you Thierry. Will be interesting to see how you get on with it.
  10. I am with you on this Chuck - same goes for Italian and armour as well. Don’t get me started on the 1/35 kits of German boxcars! I can build Cold War Warsaw Pact stuff and like modern Japanese and German subjects too as well as Chinese (just thinking through the stash) On the subject of boring markings for Allied subjects - you just need to look harder!
  11. I have the MDC bits and will use them on my Mk1 - they look pretty good in the packet to be fair
  12. Not sure but I have a feeling that it is itself based on the Hasegawa kit.
  13. Getting into detailed planning for this. I plan on using the Tamiya Mk IX rear fuselage and tail surfaces as well as the cockpit structure. The windscreen, nose and wings etc will come from the Hasegawa Mk1. I have the Eduard etch for the cockpit along with the Barracuda seat, door and detail bits along with the True Details wheels. I plan on vac forming a canopy with the bulged top and flat sides. I also plan on cutting my own masks as I want to make a machine with a funky colour underneath (eau-de-nil ideally) Is there anything else that I should be aware of?
  14. Nothing is ever perfect. I would be interested to see if he would have used the Hasegawa Mk1 wing if he had that.
  15. That is a great build with significant surgery. Does anyone have photos of the details on the rear fuselage of the original Revell kit. I really want to get an idea of what the Fuselage looks like and what is worth using. it is ridiculous that there is no good mainstream kit in 1/32 of either a Hurricane or Spitfire Mk1 given they won the first really/most significant air campaign ever
