Re: Canopies

Painting windows black or another colour is a convention that currently runs at its strongest in airliner modelling. Opinions vary but many civil aviation modellers prefer the appearance of black or dark grey windows to that of glazed passenger cabin windows, which often resemble little lenses rathe...

The Douglas DSC-2

The General Electric Fusormak of 1952 made space flight practical, but the Douglas Space Craft 2 of 1959 made it economical. These are episodes in the long career to date (2/26/2035) of the 42nd DSC-2 spaceframe, USAF serial 60-21577. She entered service in 1963 as a VCSF-2, working regularly on fla...

Re: A Belgian Pioneer

The Belphégor is wonderful. Really my sort of aircraft. You wonder about the design process that led to using what was essentially a He177 power plant. The look of the front end suggests the engineers thought they could always add another air intake but ran out of space.

Re: Yak-1b (Armory) somewhere in Russia, 1943

That photographer certainly gets around. He is taking a picture in one of my Arctic doramas, too. A small correction is needed to the North Star figure; he appears to be using a Fed-1, whereas a captured Leica III would be more likely at that stage in the Great Patriotic War. Some might think this a...
