Replacement set for the guns carried on a AC-130 Gunship.
QuickBoost do the resin guns for the AC-47, apart from scratch building there's no alternative.

There are several resin kits for the F-16 conformal fuel tanks.
The Typhoon and the advanced Super Hornet are due to include conformal fuel tanks in the latest update.
Is it possible to get the two ends cast and sand the resin body into shape?

Would it be possible for you to do a conversion of the Dassault Breguet Br1150 Atlantic 1 ATL1 to the Atlantique 2 ATL2.
L'Arsenal do a ATL 2 set but the price is more than the Revell or Mach2 kit.
They also do the Exocet missile rack.
I'm not too sure if there's a resin Exocet missile set in 1/72 scale.

Thanks

Don't worry, all suggestions are considered, quietly. I have a friend who works with the Catalina Society and has a massive library, will ask him. Problem might be that like many civil modifications, the can vary from one to another. I have a Broplan set that I think has faired over nose? Anyway, I will look into it as I'd like to do some civil stuff.

The ex-Danish Air Force Catalina at Cosford has a turret-less nose that's been carried over to many civvie Cats as well.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Thanks Colin
The Airfix kit is the PBY-5A amphibious variant, whilst Revell do the MkII A which has beaching gear. I have both in the stash and they don't line up. The Airfix is slightly longer.
RVHP do the PBY-6 conversion set in resin.
I'm not too sure about the other manufacturers what marks their kits are based on.

The Academy kit is probably the best starting point, although even it is getting quite long in the tooth now. Think I have an Airfix one in the loft but it doesn't really compare with Academy versions.

I maybe wrong but didn't Freightdog used to do a 1/72 4 blade propeller that could be used on a Avro Lincoln?
I haven't seen this for quite some time, as most publications make the mistake and say that the Avro Shackleton has eight contra-rotating propellers. It would make an interesting whiff.
