  1. Some of the Eduard 1/48 MiG-21 Weekend Edition kits include HGW superfabric seatbelts (in particular, kits 84127, 84123 and 84128). Modellers may use these kit seatbelts if they come supplied in your kit, but may not use separately-purchased aftermarket seatbelts.
  2. Some of the Eduard 1/48 MiG-21 Weekend Edition kit instructions require modellers to scratch-build cockpit sidewall detail. Modellers may follow the instructions and scratch-build parts as directed.

What is the Kittyhawk Cup?

The Kittyhawk Cup is a special Scale ACT judging category where all entrants must build a particular 1/72 aircraft model, to our “Out of the Box” rules.

Oh, and why call this special aircraft competition the “Kittyhawk Cup? This comes from a project undertaken by ACTSMS members to build eight Academy 1/72 P-40E Kittyhawk models in RAAF markings for the Australian War Memorial.
