  1. For me what is too expensive is a model that is quick to put together. I like building and find it Well spent. If its cheap and quick to put together, it's TOO EXPENSIVE Get what I'm saying?
  2. My wife just told me not to take up ship building.🤣
  3. This confirms it. The Mk Vb was the first Spitfire to see extensive overseas service. On 7 March 1942, 15 Mk Vs carrying 90-gallon fuel tanks under their fuselages took off from HMS Eagle off the coast of Algeria on a 600-mile flight to Malta.[158]
  4. This might answer your question! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supermarine_Spitfire_operational_history
  5. I built a model of the USS CONSTITUTION and after spending a lot of time on that project. I found their was a problem with their moulding process. You can check out my other posts. After struggling with that kit. I though it would be nice to build the CUTTY SARK. WRONG WRONG WRONG!! Checkout the attached picture. The masts are not right. I checked the plans and reviewed my work and it is impossible that I made a mistake. The two masts fit in two holes in the deck that are configured in such a way that they can only face the directions shown. Is it possible that Revell employees are smoking dope? Any Ideas?
  6. Thanks Pete exactly what I was looking for!
  7. Thank you for the replies! I guess early 70s will do.
  8. Can somebody tell me what year this car is. Crazy that they don't put a year in the plans or on the box
  9. If you glue them I don’t think you will be able to spread the Hull to get them in place. I did not glue mine till after they were in place and it worked ou quite well. Check out your instructions I don’t believe they say to glue the decks together prior to installation. I am about 1/2 done and find the kit to be a real challenge as there is a lot of parts pep sanding and trimming. Other wise it is fun to see it coming together

    Plastic Sails

    Thank you for your reply ! I have so much food for thought. I am going to experiment with different things, one thing seems for sure. The plastic sails are out.

    Your 2 cents is valid and I agree unfortunately my wife wants to see Sails. Oh well I might have to surprise her!!

    Plastic Sails

    I am building the US Constitution and am at the point of deciding to build it with Sails or just the standing rigging. Could somebody direct me to where I can find a Video or at least some information on installing the plastic sails. There is nothing that I have found on this subject. Please I am interested in hearing from anybody who has used the Plastic sails supplied in the revelle kit 1/96 scale. I am not interested in making my own as I am to old and have limited resources. Thankyou
