  1. I just noticed this on the WNW site, nice to see. http://www.wingnutwings.com/ww/0F5423B90F70448DA9264C40ED3D8EB7 http://www.wingnutwings.com/ww/B789BF7F35FE69CA62BD722B8BCAC4D6 Cheers, Mark
  2. Two sets of each version for me please. Cheers, Mark
  3. Nice work, hopefully that'll shake something loose. Cheers, Mark
  4. No probs; I've seen photos of both the T-8M work in progress and the Centaurus...both are certainly on my list as well Cheers, Mark
  5. In my experience, if Paul gets an email, he responds. It sounds like he's still doing that. Cheers, Mark
  6. Derek, That 'someone else' you mentioned is me. I have now completed the Tempest II wing using the Fisher Sea Fury wing as a starting point. You can see what I have done here... Tempest II kitbash BTW, I too have sent Mr Bently several emails with orders for his prints. The last of the emails was sent August 2009, yes seven months ago; I've not yet got a response. Cheers, Mark
  7. Thanks for the feedback Phil. I used Tamiya Gloss Aluminium sprayed directly from the can. It yields a nice finish as long as you do a few light passes. Cheers, Mark
  8. A few more pics with some decals on... Cheers, Mark
  9. Hi All, A little more work today... Cheers, Mark
  10. Awesome! No weight will be needed for the nose. The conversion also includes a set of white metal gear (nose and mains) from SAC. Cheers, Mark
  11. It is now listed as 'in stock' and available for order. A couple of days work is all it took, really totaling a few hours. I painted the high speed silver last night. I just masked the area for the yellow trainer bands and will paint them in the next couple of hours. I hope to start decaling this afternoon. Cheers, Mark
  12. And a few more photos... Cheers, Mark
  13. Hi Guys, Well I'm pleased to be able to show some photos of my brand new Fisher Model & Patten 1/32 Hunter T.7 conversion, designed for the excellent Revell Hunter kit. I received this conversion a few days ago. As usual with any resin from Fisher, the castings are of very high quality. Along with the resin there is an excellent photoetch sheet and decals printed by Microscale for three versions of the T.7 in RAF service. The conversion itself is very easy to use. The only casting blocks requiring a razor saw are on the bottom of the ejection seats. The remainder of the 'large' pieces come ready to use, some small pieces need to be snapped off their sprue or cut free with a #11 blade. The original Revell kit requires just one cut...about four inches of the kit spine must be cut away to make way for the resin spine. It took me all of three minutes to remove this part. Here are a few photos of the parts included in the kit and the marking options (linked from Fisher Model & Pattern website)... Paul started shipping the conversions last Monday, and I believe he's quite busy casting and filling orders. If you haven't ordered a conversion yet, you can order directly from Fisher by following this link... Hunter T7 orders I think this first version for me will be the high speed silver 74 Sqn version with the yellow trainer bands. BTW, does anyone know how wide the trainer bands should be on a T.7? I have already ordered two more conversion sets so I can complete the other two very attractive options. Anyway, enough talk, here are some photos. Cheers, Mark BTW, don't do what I did in the above photo. The canopy hold open mechanism should NOT be glued so it is flush with the top of the spine. The instructions clearly explain this, but I just missed it.
  14. Sure, it can be done. Here is a link to a conversion that I've been working on. Tempest II from a Sea Fury The thread is a little old, I have now completed the wing, I'm really happy with how it turned out. Drop me a PM with an email address and I can send more photos. Cheers, Mark
