  1. That's lovely Danny. I've been meaning to do a similar display with mine. How did you do the base?

    Making an Gloster Meteor F-3 from HK's kit...

    How about kits world decals all yellow yellow peril speed meteor?
  3. I'm sure a bullet weighing a hundred or a few tens of grams falling at terminal velocity certainly could kill someone. It would certainly cause a depressed skull fracture or even penetrate the skull. Sagittarius rising has an account of a girl on a farm being killed by falling bullets from a gunnery practice.

    WNW Albatros D.V Spinner..

    Having a lot of experience modelling the type too, I think there are variations in spinners. Not surprising given the hand made nature of the part. There are photos that do show the knuckle and some with gaps around the edge when seen from the front into the cowling. What I have not seen, is a switch of spinner shape on the same airframe when the prop was damaged and changed, but then again I wonder if pilots and units preferred a certain propeller brand and stuck to that when they were replaced.
  5. Hubris. It comes from being obsessed with the subject.

    Not Enjoying the Hobby

    Get a really good fitting kit that you have no references on and do it OOB in a kit scheme. Try the ICM Polikarpovs. Cheap and effective.

    Best NMF kits?

    The Trumpeter F100 is good in NMF. Surface detail on the italeri f104 is a bit mushy for natural metal but foiled ones look great.
  8. That's superb mate. Try uploading them to http://labs.wanokoto.jp/olds if you really want an old ww1 look. It's good fun.

    F100 tank help

    It's not a disaster, there are photos of bare Danish super sabres, but it's not typical.

    F100 tank help

    I need the kit tanks too. The boxing I have doesn't have that sprue.

    F100 tank help

    hey all, I'm planning a Danish f100d but have to use the white plastic trumpeter release without the underwing sprue. Not many Danish f100s were naked underwing, so I need to source some underwing stores. Are there any aftermarket 335 gallon tanks out there, or does anyone have a spare stores sprue? I'll pay. I know there are inserts for the short kit tanks. Would italeri 104 tanks cover it? I'm not a century series expert...
