  1. Indeed, I also had a good experience with Revell USA. I needed some clear parts, and they sent me the whole sprue! Great stuff, Cheers, Ian
  2. Cees, I just purchased one, plus an Superscale decal sheet with the correct Czech roundels. Not selling this one! Cheers, Ian
  3. Hey all, Been 3 1/2 years since I posted this thread. A lot has changed since then, my divorce was final, lost my house, gained a new fiancee, moved to Florida, sold 90% of my stash, (including the He 219 I originally started this thread with) got away from the hobby for a time, gained three more grandchildren, yeah, its been a ride..... But I'm trying to get back into building again, so I reactivated my account and here I am. . So, did we ever come to a consensus of what the colors were for this aircraft? Cheers, Ian
  4. Hey, what happened to the Traders/Sellers Board?
  5. Wumm, I would love the HPH version, but the hefty price tag keeps it on my bucket list. I suppose I could post an ad.. Thanks, Cheers, Ian
  6. Hey all, Are they as rare as I've heard? I'd really like to pick up their BP Defiant and their Me 410, but I'm afraid I'd have to remortgage my house to get them.. Any suggestions on how to possibly acquire these kits? Cheers, Ian
  7. Hey all, Been out of the loop for a while. Trying to get back into building the big stuff,. Glad to be back Cheers, Ian
  8. Nice Cees, great work. I, too, would like to see some aftermarket for that kit Cheers, Ian
  9. Thanks everyone. Rick, It's November now, and my wife and I just went swimming at the beach in St Augustine. Being raised in Ontario and Michigan my whole life, that's a concept that's hard to grasp Cheers, Ian
  10. Absolutely incredible work, John I hope someday, mine looks that good...
  11. Hey all, Just to let you guys know I'm still alive. Its been a busy year or so for me. Made a move from Michigan to Florida for a new job. I had to sell a lot of my stash and use the money for moving. I haven't worked on anything in quite a while. I actually have a dedicated workshop now, but its too hot to do anything. Well, hot for me, anyway Anyway, I hope to start on something soon... Cheers, Ian
  12. This is what people used to identify they were Jerry's work... I should have caught it myself, as the instructions are very similar to what came with my Hs-129. Duh Cheers, Ian
  13. Hey all, Just picked up a Hasegawa 32nd scale 190D-9 junker from a buddy and lo and behold, what did I find?.... a Jerry Rutman D-11 and D-13 conversion sets hiding in the bottom of the box.... The fusleage sides, these were warped real bad. I used my Revell D-9 fuselage parts to realign them the best I could. Hot water treatment... The fiddley bits The smooth cowling next to the kit part Prop hubs, blades, and wheel well insert...the blades were twisted and the hubs were all squished, one almost flat, wierd He got it off of eBay and and stole the wings out of it, and gave me whats left. I don't think he knew what he had. The castings were crude, at first I thought they might be bootlegs, but some of the guys over on LSP told me that some of Jerry's early castings could be kind of rough. I don't care, I have two conversion sets to work with Anyone have a set of 190D wings laying around? Cheers, ian
  14. The set I listed here sold right away. I wanted to model a post war CASA built He 111 James, Funny, I've heard the same thing as well...not sure what to think.. Cheers, Ian
  15. He all, Ran across this on Evilbay.. http://www.ebay.com/itm/231127828516?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_315wt_1133 I don't think its the conversion from Heritage..not a bad price tho..... Wadda ya think, worth picking up?
  16. Matt, Thanks for the info. Upon further review, it looks like all the A-5 parts are there in my kit, so I can just proceed as planned. Not much progress as of late, as I am working on a Ju 88 and trying to work on my He 219.. Cheers, ian
  17. Rick, Did the Aims conversion come with the decals for the Mistel? I'm liking it so far, but all that PE looks scary...
  18. Thanks guys! Working on my Ju 88 and trying to keep warm. Damn its cold here
  19. Got some other debts to pay on before I can invest in this conversion...
  20. Rick, Way cool conversion! Where did you get it from? Cheers, Ian
