  1. Giemme, Forgive me but I'm been looking though the build to pick up some advice on how you made the masks for the markings. Excuse me if I've missed it. Could you tell me how you did such a wonderful job? Matthew

    Always love to see a good Halifax model and one with a proper 'back story' will always be a bit special. Thank you for posting.
  3. 1/72 Wellington codes needed.

    I need to do a bit more research but I am very grateful for all your advice. I'll see if I can identify a photo from the same period (mid/late 42) and then I'll have to plump for one or other.
  4. 1/72 Wellington codes needed.

    BK, You are a star! Can you use some 1:48 scale red codes? PM your address if you can.
  5. 1/72 Wellington codes needed.

    I should also point out that I bought 1/48 codes for a 1/72 scale model. My only excuse is that I normally work in 1/48 th - other than that I just wasn't thinking!
  6. 1/72 Wellington codes needed.

    The aircraft was a Mk III of 75 Squadron. X3396 code AA-S. Lost in September 1942. http://www.adf-serials.com.au/nz-serials/nzwellington.htm This links to a photo of a 75 Sqdn aircraft AA-K. Interestingly the letters all look the same size yet Trumpeter would have the AA smaller than the K? Thanks for your advice chaps by the way. M
  7. 1/72 Wellington codes needed.

    You and me both; any science grads round here?
  8. 1/72 Wellington codes needed.

    A pal of mine who isn't a modeller (yet!) is making up the Trumpeter 1/72nd Wellington in the markings of a relative who was shot down and killed over Northern Germany. I promised that I'd buy him the necessary codes. I've already managed to buy him the wrong size (anyone want so very big red codes?). He brought the kit codes in and I'm looking for one letter is about 20mm tall and the other two are about 15mm tall. I've looked at the Xtradecal sets and I'm a bit confused. I suppose it would help if I knew what size codes were used on the Wellington! Can anyone help before I look an even greater fool than I do now!
  9. Airfix 2018

    Yes please; in 1/48th scale please. Did I say please....
  10. Your Airfix top (REALISTIC) future releases?

    I refer the honourable member to my answer below.......
  11. I am working on a Hurricane Mk 1 and I will certainly use yours as the example to follow. I think its an excellent piece of work that I can imagine would really stand out on a club display or the like.
  12. 1/18 Spitfire Mk. XIVe - Race #80

    I know this is going to make me feel so inadequate but I can't take my eyes off it!
  13. French Spitfire Mk IX

  14. 1/48 Macchi MC 202

    Like that a lot. I have that in my stash - any problems with it?
