Just an update on the Forum page loading issue. The new owners of the Forum hosts, Tapatalk, contacted me late last week and reported that they had fixed the speed issue but other problems (such as the missing Search buttons on several Forums) could not be fixed as the software is now too old. Page loading speed was much better for a short time but within a day it was back to the slow loading that we have all exprienced over the last couple of weeks. I have asked Tapatalk to address the speed issue again, but I suspect that the Network 54 software is just too old. Tapatalk is planning to migrate the Forums to a new platform and I have now asked that this move be prioritised. I apologise again for the delay and the inconvenience.

I must again apologise for the slow loading pages on HyperScale's discussion forums recently. I have sent multiple reports to the provider but haven't had a reply yet. I am now actively looking for an alternative Forum provider, although this won't be a fast process, and I have deep regrets about losing 20 years of history here. I'll keep everyone posted.

  • Tonight I present a big new Feature Article on building Eduard's all-new 1/48 scale Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A-4 with the BRASSIN cockpit. 33 captioned images cover everything from preparation of the BRASSIN resin parts to the construction of the airframe. Painting and markings will be covered in Part Two.

  • I also review the Eduard BRASSIN 1/48 scale Fw 190 A-4 Engine and Fuselage Guns, including images of the set's resin and photo-etched parts.

  • I am looking for a couple of additional regular HyperScale reviewers, located in Australia to keep postage costs manageable. I'm hoping to find a couple of experienced modellers who can take their own good quality photographs and can turn reviews around quickly. I'm particularly interested in finding a 1/72 scale specialist. Please drop me a note on btgreen@mac.com to discuss in more detail.

I have just had news that my latest book, "How to Build Tamiya's 1:32 F4U-1A and F4U-1D Corsair" is due out at ScaleModelworld in November and may be pre-ordered now. We provide an exhaustive step-by-step illustrated guide to building and detailing Tamiya'a 1:32 scale F4U-1D and F4U-1A, offering plenty of inspiration with two different configurations and colour schemes. Chris Wauchop has built the F4U-1A while I have tackled the F4U-1D. We also have a bonus Chapter on building Tamiya’s 1:48 scale Corsair family, offering some tips for painting pilot figures and including a close-up look at a Corsair under restoration.
