  9. Help me prevent a murder...

    I spilt a bottle of wine, red of coarse, onto a new carpet in a B&B I was staying in. I used about 1kg of salt rubbed into the carpet and scooped up, repeat and keep repeating until it was about gone then I hit it with hot water and detergent for about 30 mins, again, repeating the process over and over. I t worked a treat. I would suggest the same as you have nothing to loose and hopefully the salt will absorb the paint. Failing a successful outcome, take the hit and wait for her to spill her nail varnish and then you can call it quits. Good luck.
  10. Help! Decals melted on MK V Tempest!

    Cheers Graham. Just came back to the hobby after forty odd years and a lot to learn! This place is a great resource for that. ☺
  11. Pocher 1/4 ducati panigale

    Hi all here is another update. Bit of detailing of this bit
  12. WIP Revell 1/72 Halifax I/II

    Nice start Don! Don't forget to bin the Flight Engineer's seat and remove it's pedestal (just behind the pilot's seat). Do you have any plans for the engine nacelles? They're about the worst feature of this kit.
  13. From Failure to Failure

    Thank you. I knew somebody would know. Tonight's entertainment is brought to you by courtesy of a pint of Orkney Dark Island and an airbrush full of Colourcoats Night, both being a similar colour Night by jongwinnett, on Flickr Night by jongwinnett, on Flickr Have I mentioned just how much I like this paint? Used with the matching thinner it's a dream to apply, even with my total lack of airbrush experience and ten quid Chinese airbrush. And it's less smelly than most acrylic lacquer systems I've tried, not to mention any aerosol. So much so there hasn't been a word of complaint from the normally hypersensitive nose of Mrs 06/24! I suspect it may need a second coat to add depth to the colour, but it looks good to my eye already, and rather than rush things, it's in the airing cupboard to dry overnight.
  14. Mi-17sh, export version of the Mi-8AMTsh. Pics thanks to Kevan.
  15. That's the strategy i went for i've just had a look at mines and neither of the rear sprockets REALLY fit right but it looks ok from a distance......
  16. Yup. If you care what some random stranger things about a kit, you definitely need to get a life.
  17. RAF Britannia C1 XM496 'Regulus'.

    Yep thats spotty dog mate looking forward to VC 10....love those always bailing out those horrible tristar which always R always go downbird in Oman on the way back from the 'stan. Love job mate
  18. 1:72 Airfix BAC TSR.2

    I think that’s yer aktuell in flight serving? Trevor
  19. Turkish Starfighter With Extras - edited

    Top draw James, the paint fading looks nice and subtle, I look forward to the full scheme. Also, been there trying to get a decent photo to convey the faded orange tank colour, nearly impossible! David
  20. More today.... All versions of the Flanker have a distinct shallow-vee shaped lower fuselage section - correctly captured in this kit by means of a rectangular insert..... Very few Flanker kits get this area correct - so well done Modelsvit!! Note the raised detail in the wheel bays and engraved panel detail - this is a quality kit. The cockpit/nosewheel bay sub-assembly and port side rear exhaust is in place - with the stbd one still to be added. The main wheel bays are built up from three vertical 'walls' The complex contours of the engine nacelles fit perfectly onto the lower fuselage. The only smear of filler needed was on the lower joint line (overdone in my case). Ken
  21. Thanks mate. I use Vallejo acrylic gloss.
  22. That’s blooming lovely
