  1. There would be no off the shelf parts to model this monster. If you have a look at the images taken by Lanasator https://www.instagram.com/lanasator/feed/ and find her shots of the Ekranoplan she took beached on the shoreline. There are also interior shots ! Looks like this was the MD-160 Lun-class ekranoplan https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lun-class_ekranoplan
  2. I remember enjoying building the 1/72 version back in the late 60's
  3. Could that have been a result of a heavy landing buckling the fuselage? I doubt that AA could do that without pepering the hull with holes, regards Iain
  4. Interesting rippling along the fuselage, I haven't seen many like this one, maybe most WW2 images had almost factory fresh deliveries although its noted that this B-29 has been damaged https://www.worldwarphotos.info/gallery/usa/aircrafts-2-3/b-29/boeing-b-29-superfortress-damaged-tinian/
  5. Marry Christmas to All.. I ve given this model for a Secret Santa present to a young modeller in the family, probably wildly ambitious, but he does love tank models. Has anyone modelled this one. The Rye Field Model 1/35 M1A1/A2 Abrams w/ Full Interior ? https://modelingmadness.com/review/misc/vehicles/previews/rfm/5007.htm https://www.super-hobby.com/products/M1A1-A2-Abrams-with-Full-Interior.html Australia fields some US Abrams, so I'll try to track down some Aussie paint suggestions too. Regards Iain
  6. I wish they could get the rights to inject the WNW Lancaster..
  7. There's no, if not many, 1/32 production models of a B-29. Has anyone got and links to built models. This URL is a great tour of through the fuselage. https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=Qa3Lu8iPfHW&fbclid=IwAR3bPGgdDVW-Pu0Nx1PvVN-VwXgkTfQofqcNpUab_pSKUJrji-1nhTs__iU
  8. I haven't seen this until your post now, but I grew up with my Father and many relatives with their lives tied up in WW2, and be them American, Canadian or British ( and all the other involved national forces on every side ) I still respect and honour hearing personal histories, especially the ones I have been lucky enough to have never lived through, but could, on hearing such history, imagine how I should have, if I were in their times.
  9. Chasing Bears Part 1 – RAF intercepts of Soviet aircraft https://coldwarconversations.com/episode44/ along with this link; https://omegataupodcast.net/172-chasing-bears-with-the-phantom/
  10. A recent trip to Orange NSW, caught my interest with their family connection to this nose art on a B-24. There are a lot of Pistol Packin nose art examples, this one was flown by the owner of the vineyard, who trained US crews in Australian flying conditions with RAAF Liberators out of Darwin, there were other training camps further south at Tocumwal NSW. The vineyard has a special bottle designed to celebrate the connection, http://cargocollective.com/ninaharcus/following/ninaharcus/PISTOL-PACKIN-MOMMA
  11. Did many flights remove those rear perspex covers that we expected to be in place? or am I seeing a maintenance shot here?
  12. An odd find from facebook on a Lancaster rear turret "I have managed to confirm what the two pipes are. They were fitted and filled with two roman candles. Two separate colours and fired when a GH Leader crew had a GH malfunction. Usual colour Red or Green" Lots of images of tail turrets, they all seem to have customised differences
  13. This explosion has raised fears from a the nearby town of Newcastle, where Orica has a stockpile of ammonium nitrate that is four times the size of the one that exploded in Beirut https://www.news.com.au/finance/business/mining/how-chemical-stockpile-could-wipe-out-newcastle/news-story/fc4d3a747bb7a64dfa799dde961d4c97
