Title: Wanted/For Sale
Post by: NARSES2 on October 25, 2017, 06:43:04 am
The Wanted/For Sale Thread

Now you may well ask why the specific section of the site for this when we already have a for sale/wanted section ? Well some people have been asking me about having a "one stop shop" for those small sales and purchases you might not normally consider suitable for their own thread. A sort of on-line under the table a show section....kind of ?

The purpose of this section of the Swapshop section of the site then is to set aside a separate section of the board where people can list those more "commonplace" models that they are after or have for sale, maybe in multiples, rather than list each one separately. It might be that having listed something here you "forget" about it ? Well it will still be here, it won't disappear off the page and someone may well be looking for exactly that a few weeks latter ?

Why list them here if they are common place ? Well not everyone has a local hobby shop (I don't)  nor does everyone attend shows on a regular basis. So this is, if you like, an on-line "under the table search".

So anyway lets give it a go and see if it works. I can always disentangle it if it just causes confusion, but I don't think it should ? Famous last words  :angel:

First some basic rules.

This section is intended for "common kits" (what we may think of as What-if fodder) not hard to come by , rare  nor escoteric ones.

List the kit, manufacturer, scale and boxing wanted/for sale if applicable.

If offering kits for sale lists to be clearly marked as Available with price and/or whether a trade would be considered.

Can you state your country of residence so that the prospective seller can work out the postage in his price.

Are you prepared to pay postage from overseas ?

Is the Revell Arado 234 you want the ex-FROG 4-engined with the V1 on top?

I think I have one if so, and an Airfix Scout as well. I've probably got a FROG attacker too.

Yes Kit, it's the ex-Frog.

If you have PM me with what you want for them moneywise or if there's any kits you are looking for that I may have.

Im on the lookout for an A Model Ka.26 Hoodlum (standard version, kit 7240), any leads please give me a shout or if anyone has one for sale/swopsies :)

iv a hankering to build the one demonstrated from Glasgow Airport following an appearance at the 1975 Paris Air Show. Ka.26, CCCP-26184, called at Speke, Liverpool, 14th September, following which it routed through from Southend/Rochford to Glasgow/Abbotsinch for further demonstration flights. Whilst in the UK. it was under the aegis of Helicopter Hire and being promoted by Scottish Aviation as a possible type for European use/licence production. I actually recall seeing it flying over my home one sunny afternoon back then (i thought it was a Huskie!)

cheers, Joe

Bungle, I've an Airfix Boston not ten feet from me that's part started and I'd happily get shot of. IIRC, the internals are in and the wings are assembled, but that's it.  And it's a mid/late 70s boxing.

I can also supply a Novo Attacker or two (I have a considerable number in the stash...).  Also I *might* have a box of Wyvern bits in the loft at me Mam's.

I have a gentlemen's agreement with Gary to take delivery of his Warwick in exchange for beer tokens and a pair of white metal Aeroclub Merlins.  He thinks there may be enough bits for two Warwicks in the box.  I'm still on the lookout for another - an operational one with Vultures in Wellington sqn markings is a nice idea.

I have, presently winging to me from the Good Ol' USA, a Contrail "spare bits" kit for a Warwick.  It has sufficient fuselage, wings, tail to complete a Warwick from the left-over bits from the original Contrail Warwick kit.   I was intending to mould a resin kit from the vacuform model.   Perhaps we can come to an "arrangement"?
Title: Re: Wanted/For Sale
Post by: The Wooksta! on February 20, 2018, 07:06:32 pm
Probably.  I was actually considering doing something similar, although I was intending to cheat by using some Trumpeter Wellington components, such as the cockpit interior, fin and possibly tailplanes.  These would depend on how they matched the Warwick plans.  It's the transport one I'm most interested in, although a late GR.V with an FN82 tail turret is another one that's tempting me.

When I went looking for the Merlins, one turns out to be a De Havilland engine...

He's been ill hasn't he?  TBH, I'd rather try and fail with a vacform then go down the resin route.  Besides which, I reckon you'd be looking at the thick end of 100 for one - given the cost of rubber, I reckon I could do my own moulds for about that price.  Then possibly recover any monies by flogging the masters on...

Glenn Ashley is also blowing hot air about one, although his tale is that the bloke who's doing his masters works when he feels like it, goes very slowly and takes the huff and downs tools when quizzed.  I'll believe it when I see it.

I have been looking for a kit of a Robin Reliant - can't find one anywhere.  Ever since my daughter saw one on Top Gear she's wanted one, and if she can't have the real thing - which she can't, in the US - then a model would be next best. 

Does anyone know of such a kit?
Title: Re: Wanted/For Sale
Post by: PR19_Kit on March 03, 2018, 06:08:47 am
It's a RELIANT ROBIN, not a Robin Reliant!

Do they call them a Beetle Volkswagen or a Mini Austin? No!  :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

As for models of same, I've never seen a kit of one, but there's at least one diecast one around as a friend of mine has one on his model railway layout. He models in 3 mm though, so it's pretty small.

There are more models of the earlier Reliant, the van version of which appeared in 'Only Fools and Horses' of course. See here :-

The Bug kits costs a fortune when, and if, they appear for sale. It's a lovely kit, I have one unbuilt one in The Loft and I really should build it. (How many times have I written that this year?)

A cracking car to drive, specially in the summer with the 'doors' off.  ;D I had the one I test drove on two wheels more than once.  ;) ;)

Most of the models in the Google link are Regals though, but this one is the Robin my friend has on his layout.

You are not far off on the price, I think Alec is aiming for 110. Masters were ready last August but he is waiting on decals at the moment, three boxings at least planned. Glenn Ashley mentioned about doing one but as I understand came to agreement with Alec not to proceed which is sensible. AlleyCat Warwick masters were made my Alan Southcomb, who has done all the recent Blackbird sets and kits.
 
Its a fairly large lump of resin, but I'm sure he will sell a few even at that price.

Post by: The Wooksta! on March 11, 2018, 12:50:08 pm
Whilst the price for the Contrail vacform is high - the last one I saw on ebay went for the start price of 40 notes - it's considerably less than what Alleycat may be charging.  I know what I'll be aiming for.  Vacform and/or mould my own.

Definitely after another one or two Warwicks.

And having had a close look at the Formaplane Hastings in my stash, I really want another one or two.

Long shot, I know. I got it in a big junkyard lot of un built airliner parts and pieces. If no one needs it, I was contemplating turning it into a wall hanger and mounting it on a wooden plaque. Only need half a plane for that.  :thumbsup:   But, I'd rather it find another half if possible.

Revell did a 1/144 -200 with a removable panel in the side, and zillions of tiny seats to paint inside.

They did a Tri-Star like that too and I've actually got one of them in The Loft. Totally knackered box but the plastic's still good.

Yes and no.  If I saw it, I'd get it but TBH, I really have more than enough of the things.  20 is the top end of what I'd pay though, although it's not overly expensive for the best kit of the type we're likely to get.

Post by: PR19_Kit on August 29, 2018, 11:38:38 am
I may have some United 1/144 decals for a 767-300 somewhere, which might do the job. Two sets would definitely fit, but I'd need to ensure they didn't have windows on them already.

I won't be home till Sunday though.

Post by: TheChronicOne on August 29, 2018, 11:51:06 am
Cheers! Have a look when you get a chance, no hurries. I'm testing the waters, as it were... 

Honestly, I think I'd rather have myself a 747-100 or 200 for this livery but uhhhh....  I have the 400, I DON'T have the others. Which is the old Airfix kit? That's either a 100 or 200, right?

I may wind up waiting to get one of those anyway but I'm curious to see what may be around.
Title: Re: Wanted/For Sale
Post by: PR19_Kit on August 29, 2018, 12:09:40 pm
Yes, the Airfix kit is a 100/200, but with that ULTRA thick fin and the missing wing fairings it always looks wrong to me.

That early Revell 747, which I think you already have, is a far better kit.
Title: Re: Wanted/For Sale
Post by: TheChronicOne on August 29, 2018, 12:44:43 pm
Good to know... I really shouldn't buy any more 747s in 1/144 anyway. If I really want it, I can find a 100/200 in a smaller scale. Hasegawa does the 1/200 and Zhengdufu makes one in 1/300. Using the 747-400 for this livery is a "if all else fails option" because I'd much prefer a 100/200 It's just finding one...

Oh yes, that later United scheme is SUPERB!  :thumbsup:

I've never found a decal set of that scheme in 1/144 for the 747, although Flying Colours do it for the DC10, 727 and 737. Maybe it would take up too much decal paper for a 747?

Actually, looking at the DC10 sheet I rather fancy that, and I do have a small 'collection' of DC10s.  ;D

One of my two 1/72 747's came with this decal sheet, only the windows came on a separate sheet.  Only I'm not going to use them, one will be a shuttle carrier (with shuttle) and the other will be a YAL-1

Managed to find that Tamiya kit on Ebay and now have it in secure custody.  Very nice, includes markings for Kwasaki's demonstrator as well as New York Airways and Pan Am.  Really tempted to do a 1/72 whif of an civil on in Chicago Helicopter Airways markings; it's a comparatively simple scheme and the company's logo would fit well on the tall rear rotor pylon.

I can probably come up with a ball turret from a B-24, I'm converting one of the B-24s I have into a Coastal Command ASW where the turret was replaced by a retractable radome (it'll have the RP racks too). I'll have to look for it though so I'll get back to you later when I've found it (which could be later in the week)

I've got a brand new ICM Fw-189A that I bought as prospective boom fodder for the Rotocrane and now it's surplus to requirements. The box and plastic bag have been opened, but all parts are still on the sprues, and it has markings for Bulgarian and Hungarian Air Forces, no idea why.

The retail was 18.60 so 10 should get it for any interested parties for delivery at Telford, otherwise it'll cost P&P as well.

Thanks, bud!!!  Here's the thing, though; I can live without the stairs, I just want the gravel kit that comes with them. Oddly enough, it doesn't actually say on the header card for some reason, but that fret has the deflector plate and other gravel kit items (or at least SOME of it, I don't see the vortex dissipator things there .. )  that go on a 737. I can already tell I'm going to have to scratch build it (shouldn't be difficult at least) but I'm trying to track this set down anyway if for no other reason than to try because the popular opinion seems to be that these have all been used up by now and none will ever come (back) to market.  :wacko:

This is the type of shenanigans/trouble I find myself in every time I do a real world build.  :rolleyes: :rolleyes:      Not that I'm complaining, but, when I started this project I was unaware that EVERY 737-200 Saudia flew was fitted with the kit. Up until that point, putting a gravel kit on my model was just an option. Only saving grace is that a lot of them didn't have the rock deflector plate on the nose gear, however, so I still retain the option to omit that, but, that's the coolest part of the gravel kit!!!

The Revell Halifax III (radial engines) has several upper turrets, including the Boulton Paul four gun turret that was used on the Defiant.  Worth getting as you get the complete thing, not just the glazing, and you have a Halifax to play with also.

You may also want to think about the Squadron vac set for the Halifax.

I am looking for a small radar dish similar in shape to the one on the front of a Gepard SPAAG.  It's for use in a 1/35 build, but so long as it looks the part and is roughly 0.5" - 0.75" in diameter, I don't care what scale it's labeled.  I have cobbled up something that will do, but it's over-sized, IMHO, and I'm looking for something better.

Does anyone have such thing?  Or, perchance, know of someone who makes something like this?

Thanks!

Thank you as always Jim, although I've got my heart set on a F-5B or T-38.  It's for a real project and there's too many changes in the Tiger.

Fight you for it!  :wacko:  Seriously, no worries as the project I'm looking at has aspects of both the T-33 and F-5B and it'll be easier to remove stuff from the latter then add it to the former.  Still, if you find a few I'll have one, although the odds of stepping in rocking horse point seem higher.

Them Sword T-38s are rare.....  first one comes up is yours! I'll wait for the second.  ;D I just threw in my hat because I figured one of those F-5Bs will come up sooner than the Sword T-38.  ;D

I saw one once on eBay a couple years ago and something told me I should have snagged it then and it turns out I was right. It was a bit pricey... I probably didn't want to pay it, but had I the chance now I'd snap it up.  :banghead:


EDIT:  Seeing as I'm a fan of the T-38, I'm curious as to why, say, a Hasegawa or PM T-38 kit wouldn't do if a F-5B would suffice anyway? I know they're not accurate, but if you're willing to "settle" for an F-5B, why not possibly settle for for one of those other kits (which are really just F-5Bs anyway). Is there something special about the ESCI F-5B?  I'm curious is all, not trying to criticize... I'm just wondering what the differences are because I don't know and would like to.  :lol: :thumbsup:

It's the best of it's time and nothing's come along since.  Like a lot of Esci kits, it still holds up well for it's age.

I'm not settling, the F-5B will work better (If I used a T-33 kit I'd probably need some F-5 parts) and the Sword T-33s are proving very shy!  Please take any Sword kit that comes along, I've no specific need now, it'd just be stash fodder

MPC was the USA arm for Airfix (same as USAirfix), all they did was rebox the Airfix kits but with a different decal sheet. So what came as plastic in the box was just reproduced.  I've got a few MPC kits and they're all the same format, identical plastic, different decals.

One time, I bought the reboxing of the HP Halifax because the box art shows a solid nose version, anything plastic like that in the box ---- nope -- just the decals for it.

I bet it wasn't intentional then, they probably simply didn't notice or pay too close enough attention to the sprues! Probably a "not my job" type of deal.  ;D Or, simple cost-cutting. That's just as likely I suppose.  :angel: :wacko:

Anyone have a SPARE (don't go breaking up a kit or anything... if no one has one, I'll come up with another solution) canopy for a single seater F-16? I have an old Monogram F-16A sans canopy.....   I imagine another brand would work maybe, depending, so that would be fine, too I guess.

I find Games Workshop have the extremely annoying habit of simply changing the name of their paints every couple of years or so. Mind you my only personal experience is with the pots/tubs of paint, not the spray range.

Sure they haven't simply done this and it's now called something completely different ?

You don't need a Mk.II to do a Lincoln conversion as the outer nasels are different due to the extended wing, certainly the two conversion sets I have bought over the years had new molded nacels for the outer engines and new front ends for the inner nacels.

Post by: The Wooksta! on May 21, 2020, 02:23:49 pm
I'm assuming that Phil is using the Blackbird conversion and that's based on the Airfix Lancaster II with the Hercules engines and the nacelles for those are wider due to the round nature of the engines rather than the shape of the Merlin power egg

IIRC, both Paragon and DB/Flightpath gave you different nacelles for that reason and the wing changes are outboard of the nacelles anyway.

I spoke to the owner of Blackbird about this and he really just copied part of the instructions for the Lancaster B.VI kit which includes the recommended kit information. You can as both myself and Lee (The Wooksta! have said, use a B.I/III kit.

Post by: The Wooksta! on May 22, 2020, 04:48:00 pm
Whilst you can use a B1/111 kit for the airframe, you do specifically need the different nacelles of the B.II as the conversion parts are geared to go with that kit.

Other Lincoln conversions were released prior to the Airfix 2013 tooling and gave you new outer nacelles and geared to go with the 1979 Airfix kit.  FWIW, the DB/Flightpath ones are correct and Paragon's are just plain wrong.  If it wasn't for the Balckbird release, I'd go with a very expensive combination of Flightpath for the engines and nacelles and Paragon for everything else.

OK Lee, I'll bite. Which parts of the Airfix Lancaster B.II kit are specific for the Blackbird Lincoln conversion set which are not in the currant Airfix Lancaster B.I/III kit?

Title: Re: Wanted/For Sale
Post by: The Wooksta! on May 23, 2020, 02:50:48 am
I don't have one to hand, but the engine nacelles that plug into the wing - they have a more rounded shape for the Hercules, which is a radial, and a Merlin 85 cowling is round.  The difference is quite subtle but it is there.  A look through the Lincoln Warpaint shows that the nacelle shape, certainly on the outboard ones if not the inners, is definitely a more rounded shape.  Hence why Glenn specifies the Airfix Lancaster II.

Paragon gave some adaptors for the inners and new outer nacelles that were round at the front (the ones for his Lancaster II were similar) but TBH, I think they're underscale and the engines themselves have the wrong front and are also underscale.  DB gave you vacform outer nacelles to go over the Airfix 1979 ones, Flightpath resin ones but neither gave you adaptors for the inner nacelles, you just have to use Milliput or another filler to fair it all in.  Mind, there was a lot missing from the Flightpath conversion than there was in the DB one.  Paragon,s may have been wrong in places but at least you got everything, and so did Blackbird.  Although not enough for the RAAF ones as Red Roo did an expensive upgrade for an expensive conversion to go on a not entirely cheap Lancaster kit.

I'd suggest a read of Woody67's conversion from the Lancaster II with the Blackbird kit over on Britmodeller, if it hasn't been fubarred by the Photobucket snafu.  It's very informative and quite handy in places.  In addition, there's a Lincoln in Detail in SAM from either late 1989 or early 1990 that has a conversion from the 1979 tooling using the DB conversion.

Here is a picture from the instruction sheet of the Blackbird Models Lincoln conversion set for the current Airfix Lancaster

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49925092433_94428a5d4f_c.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/2j4H9BK)

Due to the change in angle of the outer wing panels between the Lancaster and Lincoln the outer engine nacelles are replaced with part 4. For the inner engines part 3 is supplied to replace the front of the nacelle which means that a B. Mk I/III kit can be used.

 I agree with Lee that there is nothing to do to the nacelles to add a Merlin 85 to a Hercules powered B. Mk II which is why the Airfix B. Mk II is recommended for the Blackbird Lancaster B. Mk VI set which is where the line at the start of the instructions comes from because I talked to Glen about this the last time I was at Telford and he agreed with me that any of the modern Airfix kit's could be used including the Dam Buster version.

Similarly the Blackbird Models Manchester specifies the B. Mk I/III but any of the kits could be used because parts are replaced or not used in that conversion which are specific to Lancaster marks just as for the Lincoln.

Thanks for that, I was sure you had to use the Lancaster II and indeed I've got one for that very purpose in the secondary stash, along with the Blackbird Lincoln.

I'd still recommend Woody's build thread, because there's one thing he spotted which no one else has - the rear fuselage on the Lincoln is angled up by three degrees - it was found to be easier to do this to change the angle of the tailplanes.  IIRC. he cut the fuselage and put a wedge in to do it.

No problem Lee. you can tell from the instructions that Glen copied and pasted from a previous set of instructions on the same page as the step number changes.

I see things that are wrong, appart from my spelling at times  :rolleyes: because my job entails me dealing with precision and being able to precisely inform others. So when I read the instructions I did wonder about what was going on and I did compair the parts against the kit so that I could resolve any discrepancies.

I'm not sure he's entirely correct when he told you that the shape of the wing changes - in planform it doesn't, the taper just carries on from the Lancaster quite smoothly into the Lincoln wing.  Overlay a Lancaster wing onto that of a Shackleton and you'll see what I mean.  What does change is the dihedral, and you just need to do a saw cut and put a wedge in.  All the other conversions gave you the outer panels and told you to do that, but they were products of a different age when you were expected to use a modicum of modelling skill and intelligence, as opposed to now where modellers are spoiled and spoonfed.

In planform Lee is right, I think the change is in the dihedral. From the Manchester, through the Lancaster, to the Lincoln, the wingtip height from the ground remained the same.

I have one of their Daytona Cobra kits, which has a white metal chassis built just like the full size one, amazing stuff. I've stuffed a Ford 289 in there though, filched from an AMT Cobra kit.

I've only been building it for about 20 yrs, with luck I'll have it done before I'm 100....
