  1. ***Finished*** Academy P47

    Cheers, I've put my su34 to one side and having done a lot of big jets recently, time for another small build, 2nd p-47 or the hellcat, can't decide (and no I haven't forgotten the blenheim thats to one side due to paint issues)
  2. F-4 STGB Again @ 13

    welcome aboard, thats 13 so far, no reason this won't make it to 2019
  3. Getting hold of XtraColour (or XtraCrylic?)

    But if you have your heart on enamels, I recommend enamels from here https://www.sovereignhobbies.co.uk/
  4. Getting hold of XtraColour (or XtraCrylic?)

    They don't appear as your spelling it wrong hhttps://www.hannants.co.uk/manufacturer/xtracrylix, as for the being any good, they are my go too brand. a small number of retailers stock it as well, the main one being wonderlandmodels.
  5. USN & USAF TPS Ghost Greys comparison chart.

    Indeed, be interesting to see how they compare to the offical chips, though I belive Jamie has the official FS chips when he formulated the colourcoats so perhaps that is the benchmark, which if true Im pleased as my coven brand is the closest to the colourcoats

    quite a variation between the brands.....
  7. **Airfix, The Golden Years Group Build.

    Yeo, though actually now I mention theres quite a few others that come to mind, the b29 I that I foolishly tried to build as a kid after getting the double edition with the b24 in woolworths 12 years ago, ended up in the bin after losing interest, part of me wants to know how the rest of the build goes, though the rest knows better with the silver finish and the rivets liable to be lost to sanding
  8. **Airfix, The Golden Years Group Build.

    f-18, in the nice gift set reissue from 2009. can put my name on the list, sure Ill find something, having built the old firefly recently Im sure there are other gems I can join with like that from this era, I know I want ro redo the tstee mossie so perhaps that can be my first choice
  9. **Airfix, The Golden Years Group Build.

    just checked and seems the kit sitting unbrought in my LHS i was considering for this was first tooled in 82, disappointing, though there is the aceint beaufighter/bf109g dogfight set, which not worth my time. However there is plenty out there that do some I may well vote for this just checked and seems the kit sitting unbrought in my LHS i was considering for this was first tooled in 82, disappointing, though there is the aceint beaufighter/bf109g dogfight set, which not worth my time.

    Lovely build, an an unusual subject as well newbies mistake but posted in the wrong section, sure a friendly mod will move it to the ready for inspection section it belongs
  11. reissue of the phantom, welcome but why can't they do the job and reissue it as a F-4B like they had announced years ago and is still listed for preorder on hannants....also be interseting ot see what other decal options comes in the box to try and tempt me to buy.
  12. Airfix B-17

    Topside done, now to do the underside
  13. Has anyone used Hataka Paints?

    Tried redline with a brush, brushed fine except the metelic shade in the set which left brush marks. Like to know how the blue lines go as I'd like to get the isreali set, especially the metalic shade.
  14. 'Greif' by name, Greif by nature!

    humbrol clearfix for the window replacement, used it successfully on several builds so far coming along nicely, been tempted myself by the new revell one in my local shop, though as I can't paint mottle its remained on the shelf.
  15. Airfix B-17

    It's even worse on the underside, but that's the risk of having several sizeable builds in the go and a small bench..... not done anymore today, on the way back from playing football
