  1. Many thanks Mike. Andrew.
  2. Mike, Are you likely to get any more of these boxings? thanks, Andrew.
  3. My set turned up yesterday; many thanks for the quick dispatch Mike. Good point on the subsequent boxings - there are an awful lot of markings in the kit and I may have one or two other sheets in the stash... Andrew.
  4. ...
  5. Hi Mike, I'll take one off your hands, please. Hopefully the postage to the Antipodes will be (sort of) reasonable. ta, Andrew.
  6. - understatement of the year I suspect Keith. Thanks very much for the photos, additional information and detailed explanations. Your posts are very interesting and really help to understand a great deal more about these Test jets. Andrew.
  7. Thanks for sharing the pics of your lovely build; the Draken is such an intriguing design - it still looks futuristic today! I really like the work you've done in the cockpit area, particularly the rods under the windscreen. I'm looking forward to the next instalment.
  8. All good Ray; thanks very much for looking. I agree on the postage amount - it's an added disincentive over and above the fact there's often only one of many subjects on a given sheet that appeals. Off to Fantasy Printshop I go...
  9. Hi Graham, I was always of the understanding that Humbrol 196 is intended as a match for the modern German colour RAL7035 Lichtgrau, which is why I bought a tin or two many years ago; I was suitably convinced when I first tried it. Sadly, I have nothing authoritative to back this claim today but hope that it might prove useful all the same. cheers, Andrew.
  10. Ray, great news on the SAC Time sheet (I'm not surprised you had it though, given what else is catered for) - that's a cool scheme the FB-111s wore at the the end of their SAC service. I would be very grateful if you could have a look for the Pig decals especially. Thanks Jabba, I'll go have a look to see what else they have.
  11. Hi Ray, Wolfpak has done two sheets that contain FB-111As - 72-037 and 72-081. Sadly, both of these are shown as 'Sold Out' on the Wolfpak site. An even earlier sheet, 72-020, has an F-111G in the grey scheme, but of course, that's also sold out. I'm not aware of any other sources of decals for the FB-111, but if I encounter them I'll give you a shout. cheers, Andrew.
  12. Thanks Rob, apologies for the presumption. I'll visit the Whirlybird site. Andrew.
  13. Lovely progress Christer; the finish will be well worth your efforts (and resumption).
  14. Thanks for the update, Rob - that's good to know. Forgive the impertinence, but you don't happen to be going to SMW this year do you? It's a bit of a drive (~17,000 km) for me, so I won't be attending... cheers, Andrew.
  15. Very nice resumption Christer and good explanation/demonstration of the painting technique - it looks as though it will yield a fine outcome. I also like your choice of location for the cowling 'gap management'!
