ya beat me to it I was just able to dig out my p51 oh well thanks
any ideas on the pods as far as what wood would be (pun not intended) good for them I had grand ideas of making them from plexi with a bras frame work inside but afraid it would still sag over time
I thought of oak but way to expensive for that size peice pine is too easily warped , alittle help please
just found these kits on #2
bandai 1/24 king tiger
airfix 1/24 hawker harrier
airfix1/72 b 29 bomber
tamiya 1/12 john player special
bandai 1/48 hetzer(kagdpanzer)
a repilca built by martin bower has a 1/43 tnt exterior post trailer bottom on one side of the walkways
I can see the 1/24 King Tiger engine panel, though I thought it MIGHT be the Panther ( I really don't know much about tanks), but what parts of the B-29 are on the #2? I know there are at least 5 of the engine cowlings to be seen on the underside of the platforms between the walkways and the leg pods on the #1 model.
Apparently the wood of choice is a type called jetulong? The article about the restoration of the #1 Eagle says that is what the pods are made of.
I have the Airfix B-29 and 3 Saturn V's in hand with another 4 in the mail from the UK, so I have a start on the detail parts. I also have the Airfix 1/24 P-51 for the above mentioned parts. I suppose some sort of map of the walkways would help to identify the parts found and still to be identified.
so you are saying mark that the suspension parts on the top of the walkways are not cheiftan parts?
and the exhaust parts on the sides of the front walkway are from the 1/25 jagdpanther ? I thought bandai 1/24 king tiger a close seconds in my opinion and yes the damn m 60 is toooooooo damn expensive but hey I got lucky and picked one up for under 200.00 ouch ouch don't hit me
sorry but sometimes it pays to watch ebay until the weeeeeeeee hours of themorning
I didn't say the Chieftain parts were not used. I said I was talking about the Jadgpanther so as not to get it confused with the Chieftain
FYI, the layout and details of the Bandai King Tiger, Jadgpanther and Panther are not that close to the Tamiya kit.
I picked up another M60, but it was the vaiant A1, for a less amount. I needed two anyways and I wanted to have at least one of each 1/24 Bandai kit so I could see what was and was not used on Star Wars and Galactica models. The Hummel was a steal at $100.00. The re-issue is WAY more.
