  1. Sunderland Beaching Gear - Colour?

    Thanks for the replies, I've just painted them aluminium.
  2. 1/72 Airfix Skytrain assembly difficulties

    Had no problem with my build but it is an issue for everyone now & then & I just had similar probs with the current Italeri Sunderland build. If both fuselage sides have the locating points for the interior assemblies, it's feasible that unless the interior assemblies are absolutely straight & level, they are going to be slightly out of alignment on the other side. I make sure that all are attached firmly to ONE side, then, if I encounter said problems, remove the locating points from the other side & - usually - hay presto!
  3. Sunderland Beaching Gear - Colour?

    The Italeri instructions provide no guidance. Any ideas? White like the airframe?
  4. Wow brilliant model & an amazing idea for a display stand!!
  5. Reggiane Re.2000 Falco

    Saw this in SAM. Superb job, especially on the paint job!
  6. Carlsberg don't build model ships, but if they did....classy. I have to ask, what are the two apparently timber poles that are placed at an angle to port & starboard in front of the citadel?
  7. 1/48 Airfix Folland Gnat T.1

    Great work. The Gnat was a beautiful little jet. Is there one based at North Weald?, I saw one in the circuit the other Sunday - looked like Red Arrows livery.
  8. Macchi Mc.200 Saetta

    Unusual parts breakdown in that there kit!
  9. Great work on the exhausts! I love that particular FAA scheme too.
  10. Short Sunderland MK 1 Query(s).

    Red to port, green to starboard (which is the international maritime standard also applied to aircraft). I think confusion sometimes arises as the green glass looks blue when not illuminated. Regarding colours I posted a similar query today regarding the Italeri Sunderland III!
  11. Sunderland III interior colours

    Cheers Alan. Very helpful. I won't be opening much up but want at least a reasonable facsimile of the correct scheme. If I understand you correctly you say interior green for the turrets & black cockpit floor?
  12. Sunderland III interior colours

    About to start the Italeri kit. Interior seems to be called out as interior green throughout, including turrets. I can imagine this for the cockpit but the turrets? Also, I recall walking through the RAF Museum exhibit that was aluminium within the hull. Can anyone confirm this?
  13. My wife has left me...

    I never knew true happiness until the day I married my wife. Of course, by then it was too late.......
  14. Breda Ba.65 A-80 Special Hobby 1/48

    At least it's molded in plastic rather then the resin used in their Anson kit. Complete waste of time, effort & money & into the bin.
  15. Allied aircraft color photos

    Indeed. Poor fellow.
