  1. Looking good.
  2. I've been looking at Hurricane pictures before starting my new mould Airfix 1:48 aircraft. I haven't decided on a particular aircraft yet so haven't looked for specific pictures yet. I bought a set of CMK control surfaces and the fin does not include the short mast for the aerial wire. Do I presume that early aircraft were fitted with the wire and later aircraft were not? I understand that that was what happened with the Spitfire. TIA Matthew
  3. Lovely work!
  4. When you produce something as nice as that it deserves a good few photos! How did you do the grass? Also I'm not sure about the aerial. I've looked to see if they were definitely fitted and some were and some weren't. I haven't decided whether I'll fit one to mine. M
  5. I've actually had success with a spot of Araldite! I tried many of the ideas above but found it very difficult with a Bf109 undercarriage because of the angles. In the end blobs of Araldite worked very well (with due attention to touching up etc.!.
  6. Thanks all, I'll do some experiments.
  7. I've just struggled to spray some Galeria Matte and wonder whether I hadn't thinning it enough (with water). Can anyone offer any advice. TIA Matthew
  8. Really nice kit but I bet the crew are going "that's our advance stopped"!
  9. I'm sorry; I didn't notice that you'd answered this question before. Thanks for your trouble anyway.
  10. Its still looking good. I'm probably a bit behind you now as two of the last four Sundays have been spent (misspent) at model shows (Huddersfield and South Cheshire). I'm almost ready to matt varnish and then I'll post some pictures.
  11. Skippy, I have this in my stash but haven't really looked at it (I'll be very happy if it turns out as well as yours); what's the problem with the canopy?
  12. Dedicated

    Thank you.
  13. There are a couple of photos on the IPMS Lancs Facebook page. Mostly centred around the very good value cooked breakfast available at the venue! Well received after setting off at 06:15 to get there for an early set up!
