    AMS F4U-5N Conversion for the Trumpeter F4U-4

    My -7 conversion fits only where it touches, and that is not in many places. What we really need is to cajole resin2detail to push ahead with several late mark conversions for the Tamiya kit. New noses, under fuselage, windscreen, canopy and raised fairing, interiors, props. We should all be capable of puttying over the wings and rescibing.

    Boulton Paul Defiant kit possible?

    I would like to think that Chris @HPM would be tempted to go the whole hog and produce an injection moulded 1/32 Defiant. Back in the day, I was working on a P-51B and D, and we were contemplating the Whirlwind (the solid masters of this went to China with me while working on the original Mirage). Then Tamiya came along with the P-51, and the rest is history.....

    Strawberry was indeed a bad word here a few weeks ago.

    One of the first things I noticed as well, it seems to be a standard convex airfoil section. This is a problem when capitalists rather than enthusiasts get involved.

    HpH Wyvern breaks through the clouds...

    I think I might prefer the main parts as vac form than resin to be honest. Resin has lots of failings. i always fear opening up my many hundred dollared boxes of resin kits and hoping the bits remain straight.

    Resin2detail 1/32 B26 Marauder

    AS Jennings says, I would prefer a good accurate kit, and I certainly don't want to be paying an additional $100 for bits and pieces in the radio compartment that I cannot see. I don't have to know that things are there. Maybe we can get a standard version and additional radios and chairs and tables as an add-on.

    Albatros OEFFAG

    I too would like an Alb D.III Oeffag, but have not looked to much into it. I cannot recall anything written up about the work required, but someone will know.

    Yak 9 M/T Silver wings 1/32

    Now I have to go and Google to find out what, where, and how, is Google Docs, and how to use it. So much to do, so little time.

    On to 1/24 scale./ Fovard March.

    'tis but an evil ploy, to tempt the 1/32 scale Val and Kate into this world.

    Researching the CA-27 Sabre

    You need to get Kevin's KLP Publishing e-book as a start, if you have not already done so. I cannot recall any published drawings as such, but I may have some accurate side views lurking about. If I can find them I can possibly scan and send to you.

    1/32 P-51B, P-40B instead of P-51H?

    I have an extra Special Hobby P-36 set aside to convert into a Tomahawk.

    How about a F-82 follow on to the Spad? :-)

    I suppose it it just like a kit and a half, two similar fuselages, a left and right wing, and a joining wing and tailplane. But still a fair bit of resin.

    HPH Models 1/32 P-51H Mustang (group buy possible)

    GrahamF, I would hope that HPH would just totally ignore Boeing if they go ahead. It is the right thing to do. Must admit I would not spend too much on a resin P-51H, maybe a cheap injection moulded kit I would, but that is not going to happen.

    Model kit trading platform...

    I have been thinking about this as well as I have a departed friend's built up collection to contemplate selling. I could make a Facebook Group/page but it would take forever to get traffic. eBay sort of sucks these days with fees and then paypal fees, although they are obviously feeling the pinch as they have been offering deal and even free no cost listings. I am interested to see this may lead. Greg
