  1. 1/48 Spitfire XVI

    Looks great, good camo. demarcation.... Good luck buying Future in Australia! I use Pascoes for clear parts, it seems fine, but if you have a source for Future, I'm all ears!
  2. I built the Westland Whirlwind from Trumpeter, a couple of years ago, I wanted to recreate my Airfix series 1 experience from the '60's - the "transfers" were rubbish, but the spares box took care of that, and, hey, I have a Whirlwind.....(if only they put Merlins in that plane!). I also have built the Airfix Sea Vixen, and love what Airfix have been doing lately, I have most of the later Airfix stuff. The Trumpeter Sea Hawk was good, IMO, as was the Wyvern. I wouldn't discount Trumpeters efforts, and certainly not Airfix's, it is a buyers market out there, and we are the beneficiaries .
  3. Airfix 1/48 P-51D - not that impressed

    I don't think i'd be building a Zvezda Pe-2 in a hotel room, myself.....but then I can't walk and chew gum.
  4. Novo Gloster Javelin FAW.9

    You are a bit of a 'johnny come lately' to Frog Javelins..... I built the original frog prototype WT830 (?) in about 1959, perhaps!!
  5. Trumpeter 1/48 MiG-19PM Farmer E

    Just beautiful, i will get mine out, again, and plug on, and will be happy if it is half as good!!
  6. Taking SCALE into account, the Monogram tail boom doesn't seem shorter than the Zvezda offering......The Monogram tail rotor clashes with the main Rotor and rear Elevator "wings', but it seems the rotors are too long, as opposed to the tail boom being too short, as has been stated many times. Anyone have any thoughts on this......?
  7. Just throwing it out there......I'm not seeing much discrepancy in rear fuselage length between the Zvezda sprue shots above, and the much maligned 1/48th Monogram offering. Does anyone have any thoughts on that?? (Off topic, I know, but it's something I have pondered on for awhile). Perhaps the fin leading edge angle is marginally different.....!?
  8. Didn't you build a 1/48 MiG-31 a few weeks ago........
  9. The old Hawk kit is not so bad, it works well for the Lysander. I just have to remember to stick the wings on not front to back, when I do one. Great model, love it!! (do you have the right no. of rocker arm covers on the cowling....... ?)
  10. PTFE seals for Iwata Neo

    I have an Iwata neo, and have used all kinds of solvents thru it....well, Lacquer, Enamel and Acrylic thinners and gun-washes of various types, with no problems of any kind. If you were to leave the air-brush in thinners for a long time, the seals would swell up, and retain their normal size when they dry out. I am a professional Spray-painter by trade, and feel that the seals in an Iwata 'brush are the least of your problems!! My skills with an air-brush are another matter entirely!!
  11. Are you serious, Hasegawa?

    Hasegawa will probably wait and see what the market will sustain..........
  12. I am on the other side of the planet, and that is good....the much maligned Trumpeter Whirlwind, or....?
  13. Petlyakov PE-2

    Tamiya like in fit, nice to work on!!
  14. Humbrol tins

    I mean, we all like exotic tools, right, and everybody has a Gunze Opener......surely!! I have not found a jar that I can't open with my trusty Gunze opener.....(I don't work for G.S.!!)
