One of the guys in the 144 SIG has done a Princess and it's magnificent!
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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

Various S&M decal sheets that could be particularly useful for whiffers (not just on helos):




(1/78th scale to fit the Revell kit)


All here: HANNANTS
Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

Why don't they do the 'dyne decals in 1/72 to fit the Airfix kit?  :unsure:

I like the BEA High Speed Jack version, but it should be a blue stripe, not black.  :thumbsup:

Because the Revell one was reissued fairly recently and is widely available?

BTW, the red Whirlwind on the first helo sheet is the BEA-tles machine seen at the end of A Hard Day's Night.  :thumbsup:

I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Injection moulded Curtiss C-46 in 1/72nd scale:



http://www.hannants.co.uk/product/SSM72015

Given the size of the thing, that doesn't seem unreasonable at 28.

Injection moulded Curtiss C-46 in 1/72nd scale:

That's the original Williams Bros. kit of the mid '70s IIRC. It's pretty good, I have one, but investing in the Falcon vacform windscreen set would be a good move as the glass area is enormous and really demands a good cockpit job done on it.

In passing I went aboard one, 'China Doll' herself, some years back and the cockpit really is huge, you sit in the Captain's seat and the window sill is below your knees, and it's about a foot away from you as well.

Love to grab another tho.
