  1. I ordered the 1/48 version to make a few kits, and will build some of my 1/32 tamiya kits in different South American markings, such as late Dominican Airforce machines. but cobble together the markings. Both sets look very good.
  2. A bit like the P-43 Lancer and P-47 Thunderbolt are the same really. Easy mistake to make. (tongue in cheek0
  3. I have this sitting and waiting, and will get a few of the 110G-4 when it comes out again in the new year. What I like is that it is about the only 110 with a correct trailing edge (apart from Matchbox) but they goofed up the rear upper fuselage so a shim is required there. Apparently it is also a cow to get the cowlings to fit.
  4. Sort of love my mac, probably ten years old, and now running 10.11.6. But they are weird compared to PCs and it is scary doing anything software wise on them. Lately it has been slowing down, Facebook runs the little whirly wheel quite a lot, and sometimes I need to exit Safari to get it going again. Yesterday I had possibly my first virus, or corrupted email, which would crash Mail each time I opened it. But if I hold shift when starting......move this that way and that this way, I can remove the offending one. It is not easy and there needs to be more simple ways to do things (for a novice).
  5. I mentioned elsewhere a whole batch of new decals shown on Hannant's, then went to check, and they were gone. Just assumed I am going looney.
  6. Looks like we might get a few boxings, the clean "Cannon Fighter" and then a bomber version. All is good.
  7. How did we get from Kate to wanting an Me 410 in just five comments? Is this a new record?
  8. We saw the canopies moulded what seems like more than a year ago now.
  9. That looks pretty damned good tbh. Having just worked on the rather soft Roden kit, I will look forward to building some of these eventually. Even one of the decal options is tempting. And the instruction sheet, while not WNW standard maybe, is more than sufficient. Bring it on and hopefully great sales will lead to a few more WW 1 kits from Meng/Mung/Ming.
  10. Mentioned at the end of this video. Well worth watching also just to see that 3D printer in operation and the results.
  11. Not mentioned previously that I have seen, Resin2detail and Flying S Models have mentioned a 1/32 CA-15 and Gannet AEW 3 for future release. It was shown on a video I watched the other day, but I cannot find it just at the moment.. The Gannet will be interesting for sure. Greg
  12. I think we might need to contemplate doing that conversion ourselves as well Mike. A pity as SW could get a new stock item for little extra work, but it is what it is.
  13. The SPAD I will surely buy a few of, but the others..... Roden should be capable of lifting their game a tad to get closer to WNW tolerances, sort of like CSM and ICM etc. Great news all around.
  14. I'd try again, mine went through a few days ago.
  15. You may be interested in my reference photos of Vulgarian Air Force Ju 52s converter to turbo prop power.
  16. There is not much point in having a half finished kit that does not get released, especially if you are paying someone a lot of money to do work. I don't recall any that I ever started for HPM not getting finished and released, apart from the 1/32 Mustang which was usurped by Tamiya when still at the 2D computer stage. Promises and good intentions don't keep the wolf from the door, whereas the F-4K, Halifax, P-51B, and Beaufighter (all of which have been mentioned and maybe part finished) would do so.
  17. It is almost like they took a little plan out of "Aircraft of the Fighting Powers, 1944" and blew it up to 1/32. So much wasted effort as they can do good kits if they choose.
  18. The Vampire has been announced as a longer term release by Infinity Models.
  19. Ah ha, in a momentary flash of brilliance, I realised that , if HKM want to do a B-17 nose in 1/32 to match the Lancaster, they would have to make a new mould. Doing so they could correct the sections forward of the canopy. I could then be tempted to buy a B-17 kit and graft on the new nose.
  20. I am still waiting on the first release. ZM don't seem to get around much. At Lucky model it is still listed as a future release, HLJ had not even heard of it when I enquired.
  21. Helping us all to get to 40 pages. Also a bit chuffed as this kit is not really of interest to me. Maybe we can also have a group build for wheels. Aftermarket and all.
