RE: Tony K1-61-2

I think you are right Chad. I have a coupla of Marutaka kits still left (Corsair and Mustang) and both are drawn/designed by M. Kato. In fact, I think Marutaka made such a kit of the Tony as I...

RE: SCRATCH BUILT P-38M NIGHT LIGHTNING

Again, extremely IMPRESSIVE work. One question - with the amount of detail you have added, I am wondering the accuracy of the Guillow's outline of the P-38. Was the outline accurate enough or did...

RE: SCRATCH BUILT P-38M NIGHT LIGHTNING

Very impressive! To accomplish all that from a set of Guillow's plans. I built my share of Guillow's kits as a kid and you have my admiration for blowing a set up large enough so to build such a...

RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

Dang Sam,

So sorry to hear of your loss. It's amazing that after all these years, the Corsair is STILL plaque with tip stalling - you think someone would have come up with a "fix". Is more...

RE: ZIROLI P-40 EATS IT

I REALLY feel your pain. What a magnificent looking P-40!! It is a bit ironic that the letters on the side of the fuselage read "***" - and we all know what THAT stands for! Again, sincerest...

RE: Messerschmitt BF-109 CMP

maybe it has been asked before, but how much do your aluminum spinners for the 109 go for Ty? Will you have any left over from your current run to sell to a few of us needing them? I bought the 109...

RE: Troy Built Models P40 ARF [ under construction ]

If I remember correctly, aren't the TBM "warbirds" advertised as "sport" scale, ie some liberty has been taken with the scale outlines and such? Although I am not a scale purist by practice, I am by...

RE: Goose's H9 F4U Corsair ARF bash

I may have missed something a bit back - when you trimmed the center section to conform to the wing saddle, did you make up for the "gap" that was left on either side between the newly cut center...

RE: Suggestions for Next Project?????

My vote would go with the Ziroli Skyraider - of all the planes that I was exposed to during my 22 years in the Air Force, I think this single airplane was one of the most FEARED planes in combat. ...

RE: Is this your F4U Corsair?

Actually, I think Jim's (Corsair Jock) H9 bashed Corsair looks a LOT better. Among other things, Jim fixed the badly done wing center section that protrudes at the back of the fuse wing saddle. The...

RE: F2G Corsair Build Sneak Peak!!!

RE: TF Red Box P-40 Building Instructions

there are actually quite a few differences in fact, least of which is the overall size. The gold edition has a 65 inch wingspan whereas the red box has a 60 inch. Also, the stab and vertical fin...

RE: CMP Hellcat Completion Thread (not a slow build thread)

RE: which country had the best fighter planes of WWII

wow, I think your "thinking" on the subject of the swastika is a BIT skewed. The swastika was and STILL IS a visual representation of HATE, just like the white pointed KKK hoods, and other notable...
