I been eyeballing those myself !!!  Those are so Kool !!!!!!   Where did you get the pictures ? I didn't see those on the Unicraft website or on FantasticPlastic either ??? I been thinking of trying some of those kits from Unicraft but haven't yet. I've heard they were good kits but don't know anybody who has bought one.

Ennis, the kit subjects are good, but the kits can be a real challenge.  I've got a few of Igor's creations and with a bit of work they do clean up good.

This one below is half an Unicraft kit, it's a conversion to make the RR Griffon mid-engined Mustang, you get all the fuselage stuff, the wings come from a donor kit.

Thinking about it, this would fit into the beyond '46 nicely but it would have been more like the bottom pic, I was told by David Birch (the official RR Historian) that had it flown it would have had a Tempest tail fitted. I've also modelled this to have a RR Crecy engine installed, this was to be a 5000 hp 2-Stoke engine. EDIT: That should read, a 5000 hp, 2-Stroke, V-12, sleeve valve engine with an exhaust turbine to boot.

Thanks for the info,my friends,I checked after I read the post and found they had changed it since I last was there !!! They added several new kits and more pictures as well.  I've built resin kits before and they can range from equal to or better to crap and anything inbetween . I've made masters for resin kits before so I know that it's mostly up to the caster than the master maker.  I've got too many things to finish before I can start anything else but I'm ordering some soon anyway !!!   LOL!!!  I'm just wondering if I want to order direct or thru Fantastic Plastic. Not really worried about either just depends on cost.

I've ordered directly from Igor and the models showed up within a month. This was back when he was forcing styrene into his molds by hand (a few pieces had fingerprints molded into the plastic) and one side was charred. The quality was pretty bad. Some of his earlier resin kits were not very good either, but that may have been due to the late 90's resins he had available.

Some of his newer models seem closer to average in quality.

I would get them through Allen, especially if he has the kits in stock and you need it NOW.

Thanks for the info ,guys. I've discovered that he has made some changes in his website and added some things. I'm using Fantastic Plastic for my first buy. I'm just trying to decide on what I want !!!   One idea I had was getting the turbo conversion and the Falcon wings for an FW-190.  I'm also wanting the Heilofly III /57. Now that would be Kool to have in real life,too.  Soon as I've built something you will be seeing it here.

I've been doodling on an early jet design drawing but the prototype (so far finished part of the "build") ended up in 1945.
Can that be considered part of my "entry", or should it remain a part of the "build"?
I do have a follow up in mind, that will go beyond 1946.

I already put an entry in Profiles, so I don't need an extension.
BUT.
If we can be pretty sure that there will be more entries with an extension, let's have the extension.

I'll certainly have a profile entry and more than likely a physical one as well with an extension.

Gracias, Senor GB moderator!

Bastille Day seems very appropriate somehow.

I'm hoping we get until 11:59 PM July 14th in our respective time zones. I still need to finish up paint, decals and backstory on mine!
