    Alright............ ummmm what scale are we talking about Shrike.......... 1/33 or 1/48?

    1/33 would go nicely with DN's Peashooter!:twisted: But to be truthful I'm not really worried about the scale.............. unless it something Ray dosen't have to re-scale to build.:grin:

    That's ok John, I don't mind doing my own rescaling. I just lighten my colors
    a little and print away. Also, I found that if I do find the odd bit in 1/144, most of the time I have to resize anyway for it to be accurate. And, it is fun being one of the minority in building scales. But, I just pushed 44, and am have lost about 50% of vision in my right eye, it is getting more difficult to build small. I may be required to (heaven forgive me) jump all the way up to 1/100!

    1/32 scale, as is the B-9. It's a project that I started about 4 years ago, screwed up a few things in the files, got sidetracked, et cetera, et cetera.

    I've got all the research I could want. I have the Westburg drawings and literally every known drawing published.

    This weekend I'm going to finish tossing the old version together and make a concerted effort to fix the most obvious problems and have something buildable.

    The models looks very good so far.

    I want to see one more detailed picture of the nose :twisted:.

    I'm interested in this plane because was used in Argentine Air Force.

    By the way, do you find a good 3d view of this plane with cross sections?

    Regards

    I found a good 3 view, but no cross sections. Had to go off of images, memory of seeing the real thing, and imagination.
    Here's the nose.
