Custom Model Decals

I saw some samples of this firm's work at a model railway exhibition. He can produce fine lettering down to fractions of a millimetre in colours and, importantly, in white. He can do solid colours by overprinting white. The samples I saw of lettering on railway subjects were impressive and he has do...

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.

Herr Hauptmann, will one bottle of Vallejo 70.995 be enough for this tank?

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...

Re: Five projects

SO.4000

Rather unusually, this early 50s French prototype didn't crash on its first flight, and never killed anyone, although it was only flown once. This probably related to a realisation that it was a lot of airframe, with a lot of rear-facing structure, for two early Nenes. The front fuselage of this air...

Why no UAP models in our scale?

Apologies for posting an item about 1/72nd scale. Good to see this in Forthcoming Releases, though, following the publication yesterday of the following: https://www.dni.gov/files/ODNI/documents/assessments/Prelimary-Assessment-UAP-20210625.pdf (Main aircraft image mostly USN believed to be in publi...

A Belgian Pioneer

The world's first pressurised airliner, the Renard R.35. Unfortunately it crashed early in its first flight, fatally for the pilot and the project. The cutaway in an 80s Air international does not show provision for a toilet, so there may have been multiple pressures had it entered service.

Re: SF.260 and MiG-21 - Tobruk, 2017

I'm very taken with these!
I wasn't really aware of Heroes Models but they appear to do some useful stuff.
