  1. Great photo - hard to believe that was over 40 year ago. Interesting to see both nozzles fully open.
  2. This is really great news but the real question is why it has taken so long! So many great schemes, so much history! I hope they do the rigging as etch.
  3. Looking forward to this one. It looked fantastic in the flesh on Saturday. I had a chat to one of the designers and 1. Markings options will be 2 US, one FAA and one French 2. There are so many detail changes between a - 3 and - 5 that all we are getting is a - 5. At least by current plans. HTH Will
  4. Very sad to hear this. 'First Light' is a wonderful book that I thoroughly recommend. The achievements of that generation only increases with time
  5. That is great. I have this kit in the stash and it is good to see it built for inspiration. Could I ask the technique you used to paint the spinner? Will
  6. I have just 'invested' in a Cricut air 2 cutter. The Amarillo USAF font is wider than the text on the Tamiya and Aeromaster sheets that I have for an F-84. Did the font change from the fifties, does anyone know where the correct font can be found or have software that can manipulate a font? Many thsnks Will
  7. Stunning and an inspiration as I have just ordered the kit. Did you use any varnish over the Alclad? Will
  8. Many thanks for that. I have found some.39mm braided brass wire that looks a little thin off the model but in terms of colour and look is spot on
  9. Slightly random question. Looking to get some wire to replicate and was wondering what the diameter of the real thing was. Any help much appreciated Will
  10. Well here is mine 1/24 Sea Fury - Airfix 1/32 F-106 - Trumpeter Gladiator - SH DH Hornet - SH EE Lightning
  11. Pertinent thread for me I just bought this kit to build and compared it to the 'scanned' Airfix kit and it matches well enough for me. The one thing I do want to fix is the cockpit. I accept I am never going to find a Cutting Edge set. Can anyone recommend an alternative? Does the Eduard set work? Many thanks in advance Will
  12. Fantastic to see progress on this. For such a short prodigy of 130 or so it remained on the front line for 3 years. Wallet at the ready!
  13. This would really do it for me. Love this helo.
