    for Texman

    in case you're interested in building the f6f from this site, I recoloured it as a F6F-5K drone like the one on Jan Mace's site (http://janmace.com/ ) direct link to the profile is http://janmace.com/ww2/F6F-5K.html .
    Just let me know if you want to have the file.

    cheers,
    Richard

    Scaled these models to 1:87

    I have done some preliminary work on these great offers from the Konradus site. The five aircraft models in 1:200 scale were all scaled to 1:87 and parts rearranged, plus spare parts added to the new print sheets.

    Here's the F-6F-3: http://www.kartonbau.de/wbb2/attachment.php?attachmentid=56657

    And here's the Walrus as a further example: http://www.kartonbau.de/wbb2/attachment.php?attachmentid=56659

    If you are interested in these versions have a look at this post at Kartonbau.de (all in English). And please don't use the examples above for building - they are low resolution illustrations, not to scale.

    The Kawanishi "Emily" was such a magnificent offer that I treated it in a separate post, with many images of the original and its history. It would make a grand 1:87 model, since a basic cockpit interior is provided. See this post immediately after the above. The 1:87 "Emily" was also recoloured to make a better match with the sole surviving original.

    Best, Leif
