RE: Please direct me to an online store that will ship a SIG kit to Australia

RE: Please direct me to an online store that will ship a SIG kit to Australia

Try here. http://www.the436modelshop.co.nz

Prices and stock levels are on the website and the Aussie dollar is always way stronger than the Kiwi. Goods usually arrive in a couple of days.

RE: Location of Kill Markings on Spitfire?

It didn't need to if the pilot scored his victories in earlier marks. The kill markings indicated the Pilot's score, not the aircraft.

RE: Electric 1/4 Spitfire MK1A full composite

Actually, the sound of the undercarraige hitting the ground on landing sounds very much like the typical popping and crackling a Merlin makes when throttled back. Have a closer listen to the video.

RE: Electric 1/4 Spitfire MK1A full composite

The Spitfire, the video and the pilot who flew the model in a very Spitfire like manner are all simply outstanding. With a pilot on board and maybe a slightly slower turn after landing this would...

RE: Clark 1/4 Spitfire

This Spit just doesn't seem to have the correct amount of dihedral to me. Could be an optical illusion I guess.

Dave, the wear and tear around the serial no on that photo is the reason the "B" looks like an "S".
