  1. Avro Lancaster Question

    Ok many thanks guys this is really helpful. Great reference photos as well chris
  2. Avro Lancaster Question

    Afternoon folks - I'm currently building the Tamiya 1:48 Lancaster and am wondering about the windows along the fuselage. Are these windows blanked out? I ask as the decals on the side of the fuselage cover one or two of the windows and I'm not sure if I should have these windows as windows or blacked over? thanks chris
  3. 1:24th Typhoon "Car Door"

    Ok that's interesting - I've not thought of using gloss black before so will give that a try. Superb build and inspiration to get on with my one. Need to finish my Tamiya big Lanc first though!
  4. 1:24th Typhoon "Car Door"

    Stunning! The weathering is outstandingly- did you pre or post shade? chris
  5. Alclad primer problem

    interesting - I've used Alclad primer for years and recently have had similar problems. It has been my 'go to'primer because it is so good! I thought it was my airbrush but I'm not so sure... chris
  6. Airfix 11Sqn Lightning

    Yes that's very nice indeed - the weathering is very effective chris

  10. 1:48 Tornado F3, 11 Sqd, RAFLeeming

    ok so I took the plunge with my Italeri Tonka kit and actually the fit so far has been quite good! Detail not as good as the HoobyBoss one but ok. Doing this one in flight again and just checking to see which schemes to do This is two days worth of work... chris
  11. 1:48 Tornado F3, 11 Sqd, RAFLeeming

    thanks Eng and you are spot on about the HobbyBoss kit! I havent got the Revell one yet but it does sound good I have to say. Out of madness I started the Italeri one - will see how that turns out! chris
  12. 1:48 Tornado F3, 11 Sqd, RAFLeeming

    Many thanks - I used Gunze H334 for the Barley Greay and H315 for the undersides Chris
  13. Ok so over the last couple of weeks I have been finishing off projects that I started some time ago and this is one I started over 2 years ago! It is the HobbyBoss 1:48 Tornado F3 which I had given up on as the fit was poor and I got bored of it. Anyway I decided to have another go at it and this is the result. Its not bad but far from perfect but 'in flight' it looks pretty good in the special scheme. It was largely out of the box with resin seats and Xtradecal decals. Paints were Gunze and Tamiya with some Alclad. I love the Tornado F3 and am eagerly awaiting build reviews on the Revell kit which I am hoping is much better than the HobbyBoss one cheers chris
  14. many thanks - I Painted the whole think Matt black and then the camo was Tamiya XF 52 and XF60 chris
