    Anyone for an RNZAF Skyhawk 'Kahu' panel and HUD?

    Hey CJP It will be available through Roys website. A few guys who put in some $$ at the start to get the ball rolling will get a set for free/minimal cost. Then it will be up to Roy to go from there. But I know he is pretty excited to put it into production. I think the hold up is me now..... We haven't printed the antenna's or sensors yet either

    Matt and Zac, appreciate you continued interest guys! I have updated on my other post on the cockpit upgrade thread. Wayne, yes mate I do have lots of detailed photos of the avionics bays, sling me a PM with your email and I will get them to you Cheers Anthony
  7. I must have blinked and missed all that happened! Anyway, stunning work.....the weathering is so realistic and those deployed slats and flaps are something else! Very inspiring indeed

    Ok team I thought best do you the courtesy of an update. The great news is that Barracuda are going to cast and produce it! I have all the printed parts all fitted together and they fit beautifully. However my issue is that I have cannibalized Aires Cockpit sidewalls and fitted them to my kit and am having difficulty ensuring they will fit a std Trumpeter kit. Looks like they will, but I have had to carve up my cockpit that I have done so far and I ended up cracking my nosewheel well....arrrrrgh! Which wont be an easy fix! ……...Anyway. . The good news is that it seems like it will all fit together in the Trumpeter kit, coaming height looks good, but still a bit more fettling to do to confirm that. Didn't realize there would be so much work at this stage, I thought the hard part was done LOL...... I have to confess that I have had a bit of pressure from my engineers on my Auster T.7 rebuild with certain areas. I am getting pressure to have everything ready for fabric on the fuse by the end of the year. But you guys know me well enough to know that, that wont happen until its perfect! New fuel lines and tracking down missing drawings and parts has kept me busy. Back to the Skyhawk, when I cracked my wheel well I had to put it down cos I was only getting ratty and doing more damage. In fact I almost decided modelling wasn't for me anymore and I have enough on with real aeroplanes!!! LOL, don't worry I have calmed down again. I'll just finish off my fuel lines and I will be back into it...... Stand by team Cheers Anthony

    Hi Max, Dean & Mike Dean I see your point, however I think this is where Silver Wings has the market captured already. People wanting this sort of thing look to Silver Wings to plug those gaps. I would guarantee they sell more Tiger Moths in their range than a Hawker Demon simply because of the military and civvie users. Would make a nice compliment to their US counterpart, the Stearman thats already in their range too...... Max...I wonder what Silver Wings themselves think?? Cheers and nice to have your guys feedback Anthony
  12. Wow, Mike that's awesome buddy! Love the 'fat' Raiders! Keep up the great work....I could see someone wanting that belly radome to build a RN bird as well

    I agree, the colours look good, but need a touch more contrast. I think after a little weathering they could start looking similar in shade. You are very very close though....mind you I am only looking at a screen... Keep up the great work!
