Get the canopy challenge; note IIRC some NF10s when used later as (I think) nav trainers had T11 canopies retrofitted.  Also if you are tempted to do an NF10 conversion the canopy shape was remarkably similar to the Mosquito fighter canopy.


Somewhere in my library I've got a pic of a 23 Sqdn NF10 with a T11 canopy. I thought it was a Venom NF3 until I realised the fins were the wrong shape.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

Would be in the market for 1/72 conversions:
Sunderland to Sandringham
Sunderland Mk V
Hawker Fury Sabre & Griffon
Vampire NF 10
Folland Gnat Mk 5

Hope springs eternal!

I had suggested this before but got no feedback... If Freightdog already have 1/72 F-16CFTs for the Revell kit, why not make conversion sets for the latest Vipers, the E/F/I? There are no kits or conversions of the E/F available in 1/72.

Thanks for suggestion, and apologies for not replying before. I thought these options had been covered by Hasegawa and Kinetic? I will look into them.

How about the AIM-95 Agile missile in 1/72nd?

Also

How about 1/144th and/or 1/200th scale Skybolts for the small-scale Vulcans made by GWH and Dragon?

You may not need masters for that as they've been done at least twice before by other concerns, now long since closed. I've got at least one set..................  ;)

Airline ladders/steps in 1/144
Fire-bomber conversions
Seamless air-intakes for the HP Victor
Mirrors- as a lot of 1/24 and smaller scales don't supply them on vehicles or aircraft (fighters).

How about Merlin 85/87 engines as fitted to the Lancaster VI?
would be V. useful for upengining all sorts of piston powered aircraft.

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

Aircraft in Miniature already does a very good North Star conversion for most of the variants, including one that would work for the Mk.VI

The first option Alistair, with the exhaust stubs sticking out on both sides, the other two are different variations of the exhaust "cross-over" so the exhaust exited on the outer side of the nacelles

In 1/144 scale a tanker conversion for the Micro Mir Valiant, and even more a Valiant B2 conversion for the same kit. Please pretty please.
