Have to say upon looking in the box, this is excellent separately packed pilots and crew member, seperately boxed clear parts, PE and markings for six birds. It seems sad that Kitty Hawk is gone!

Regarding camo patterns, the protocol was for even-numbered aircraft to get the "A" pattern and odd-numbered ones to get the "B" pattern.

Robert Podkoński
I suppose so, too, Gary. There is a full scale mock-up (wooden replica) in Poland presented in the museum of Arkady Fiedler, the author of the "Dywizjon 303" ("303 Squadron") book:

I'm also building a Hurricane right now in the same scale. It's a IIc in Portuguese service but things look similar in the details as yours so I'm following along.

Following too!
10. July, 19:15
Gary Kitchen
Thanks all for your interest. Rui I'm following yours. When I saw the detail I thought they may be the same tool, but his one is an old Hasegawa according to the timeline where as yours is a separate tool, but they're remarkably similar styles.

Gary… I'm sure the Hasegawa tool has a open canopy option that can actually be posed open. I just found out I a test fit the the two part canopy in the Academy kit isn't really designed to be open. ☹️
I also discovered the the effort I put into the instrument panel was a waste because it's buried so deep in the fuselage that it will never be seen.
10. July, 20:07
Gary Kitchen
But you know it's in there 😉
The Hobby2000 kit has a single piece canopy so not open. But I'm going to use the Part rear canopy with some acetate and try and cut the front section away from the single piece.

Going a bit off piste with this one Guy. Zumbach's brief mount Hawk 75A-2 No107 was captured and sold on to Finland becoming CU-556 so I'm doing half and half. Photos to follow.
24. January, 21:25
Guy Rump
Really interesting combination of liveries Gary, strangely it seems to work, almost as if the time is when the Finns had taken the aircraft and had only half painted it so far...🙂
2. March, 21:32
Gary Kitchen
Yes. I'm much more satisfied with the Finnish side as I really can't seem to crack these French Color combos. Not sure if I'll do one like this again though.

this being a Curtiss ..I not certain and I'm curious if it was manufactured in Buffalo NY ?
7. July, 23:15

Hello @Mona I can't say definitively but it does look like all the french Hawks were Buffalo produced and shipped to France as kits to be assembled at Bourges.

Thanks Guy. I'm glad Julien called out my error before I'd gone any further though.
Thanks Andy, James, Juergen- I've managed to cover the fuselage with a slightly larger RAF decal- it has softened well enough to see the inspection hatch still and so am happy with that. I'm going to try and lift the upper and lower wing decals this weekend. Fingers crossed. 👍

Martin I'm already falling for this beauty, might be love at first sight.
Re the Italeri reboxings- learned that one with the Comanche I am building as Tamiya but a world apart in truth.

I am currently working on Zumbach and the VG-33 as well as three GBs the Schwalbe, the Arctic, and the 5th Gen. For my birthday recently my brother bought me a Buccaneer which I am going to be obliged to build and not commit to stash. Hopefully at that rate I can squeeze the Mig in, glad the GBs are running for a year 🙂

🙂 I bought the decals before I've even found a kit. Any tips on the best 1:48 F16c BLock 52+?
25. January, 21:29
Maciej Bellos
Get Tamiya's F-16C/N. You can build any single seater from Block 25 to Block 52. Good fit and lots of spare parts for other projects. Two drawbacks, the lack of a) the conformal fuel tanks and AG weapons and b) the tail base parabrake housing. There are aftermarket for those. Second choice is Kinetic's F-16C Block 52+ Hellenic Air Force, which has everything Tamiya lacks. Fellow modellers say it is kind of a beast in terms of fit but you get a lot of options (flaps, slats, huge choice of weapons).

In case you need any help regarding the Tamiya and which parts are required for the polish Viper just send a pm.

Cheers!

Thanks Gordon. It was my first kit at the start of UK lockdown last year as I got back into it. Lots of firsts- airbrush, resin, PE. The Airwaves kit has what you need if you're heading that way.

Hey, that's a great start!, I thought it was "The 'fix" one for a second-similarly detailed, that I've previously built. My Trumpeter 72nd experience is their Tu-128 which went together great, albeit with some sloppy inaccuracies [that others pointed out to me, so I'd have been none the wiser]
7. September 2020, 11:10
Gary Kitchen
Thanks for the encouraging comments guys. @Andy I'll have a look in your albums and take a look at your Wellington for tips 👍 @Erik thanks- I see you have a P.11c in your albums which was a Heller kit. I've just finished an Arma Hobby version which was lovely but a bit fiddly for my reintroduction to hobby. I've not detailed the build but have few snaps to put up soon.

Thanks all for your views, likes and comments. I'm almost there, final pics to follow. @Andy- I may well do a bit of dry brushing over top. I have to say this has been a lovely little kit any imperfections are inevitably mine. The only frustration was (a) no open bomb bay option, (b) the fuselage windows weren't particularly well fitting.
