  1. From what I understand (was told whilst 74 was at Honington in '88) the weird colours had nothing to do with primer. The painting was contracted out in the States and they painted the first 4 or 5 in the closest colours they could find as they didn't have access to std paints. Being told the colours were wrong, they had another go with a different, but also incorrect paint. After another jab in the ribs the third batch was much closer. Or so the story goes.
  2. Nope, only ever use enamels, think I'm one of the few people left alive who can't get on with acrylic!
  3. Chuffed to find out all OK with crew, but gutted. Visited her many times whilst based at Swansea airport and missed her fly every time. Was due to fly at Swansea Airshow this year, hopefully one day.
  4. I'm with most of the above, never clean sprues, never use primer, never had a problem!?
  5. Having been concerned about rapidly using up my stocks of Klear to protect enamels against washes I've recently stared using Flory washes, being water soluble no protection is needed and black, dark and grime so far have, with a little post matt pastel (and practice), worked wonders. http://www.florymodels.co.uk/washes/
  6. You can buy stuff online! As above get to Kbely on the tube (deffo first choice) or if you're short of time the Army Museum.... http://www.prague.eu/en/object/places/145/army-museum-zizkov-armadni-muzeum-zizkov http://www.prague.eu/en/object/places/153/aviation-museum-kbely-letecke-muzeum
  7. Bucc Javelin Sea Vixen Scout/Wasp Vulcan Please!
  8. Looks VERY similar to the old Model Alliance sheet, right down to (if my eyesight serves) to the wrong date for the 1100 years of King Alfred's Navy marking. Still an inspiring sheet though.
  9. Ahhh, Model Junction for every trip to Bury, brings back memories!
  10. Agreed, Airfix kit is terrible. The only real options are Hasegawa which is regularly on offer on offer on Luckymodel, or a very much 2nd best in Fujimi. All other kits on the market are either the wrong version or pants.
  11. 1109 (Thetford) Everything
  12. Vulcan, SA Bulldog, Gazelle, Puma, Javelin.
  13. This site might help... http://www.tornadosig.com/index.html
  14. Hobbyboss 100%, I think the only real edge Kinetic has is there is a late wing boxing.
  15. Yep, at least one was, I believe as part of the scheme trials.
