Derek Huggett It is an 'old friend', but with some nice new markings - the Irish Air Corps is especially different! Not the most high tech of models, but then we grew up with Airfix and the old makers, didn't we, and I think it all taught us 'patience' and 'how to do things better'!

LUIS ALFONSO AGUIRRE MORALES Hi Bill: Thank you very much for the tip. Of the New Tools, i only have bought the Me 109 G, and also the Old Friend which I found in a "Smithsonian" box in company of the P 51 B and also one of a "Heller" offering without box; hope to buy the Gnat, two place Vampire, Me 109 E at least.

LUIS ALFONSO AGUIRRE MORALES Hey Derek: I bought last Month one "Old friend" with RR Stanford Tuck box started without canopy and today arrived a Squadron vac canopy for it. Hope to continue the build and correct and replace first owner "Improved" parts. I was wondering if the exhausts of this one can be substituted by two Revell of Germany new mould ones. Cheers,

LUIS ALFONSO AGUIRRE MORALES Hi Derek: I have read in the Time Line the 2011 offering that this one has "New Parts", and was wondering what are the new parts included. Cheers,

Derek Huggett Luis - (sorry, this is the second time trying to answer your message - first time Scalemates system timed out!).
I had not noticed the Time Line this particular one until you mentioned it. I think that the original author for this may have been a bit excited by the 'New Tool' Sea Hurricane just before this, and thought our 'Old friend' had been 'Updated' in some way!! Wrong!!! Still, the new vac canopy you have should make quite a difference anyway!
I have not seen the new Revell Hurricane yet, so cannot make any comment on the exhausts (give me a bit of time and a few of my stash out of the way, and I might catch up ).
