Hi guys, While checking the contents of the conversion, I was a little bit puzzled by the two single cockpit components. Of course they are very visible elements but the out of my memory the PR XI had alas many more other features. So again I allocated my train journey time to an interesting task: to check all the changes. I'm currently allocating the few hours I have at home to a project to help someone but when I will get some additional time I will try to take some pictures of the modifications I made last year. Just to inform you, that mark had MANY other cockpit changes and so
I waited for the Roden 1/32 O-1 Bird Dog with much anticipation. When it finally arrived, I wasn't disappointed: a simple, no-nonsense, accurate, well-moulded kit albeit a little scarce in interior details. This latter point didn't bother me a bit because I like to detail cockpits and interiors. IMO the one thing the kit lacks is an M-16/ AR-15 assault rifle which is closely associated with the Bird Dog and the FAC missions it was renowned for in the Vietnam conflict. The O-1 is a little bare without it. The problem is that M-16's can be easily found in armor modelling in 1/35 but none in 1/3
Hi guys, I'm currently building a Tamiya 1/48 Skyraider USN early 1960s with a bucket seat (as opposed to the later Yankee extraction seat). I searched long and large but cannot find a reference for the colour of the seat belts/harness. Can any of you Skyraider experts help me in that matter? Thank you in advance, Cheers, Quang
