  2. Valom MD.450 Ouragan 1/72

    Hi Steve, It is El Salvador. Martin

    With the F-105 foremost in my mind at present I thought I'd post a few images from a trip around Carswell in 1980. I'll post more once I have time to scan them. The first three are a flight heading out to the ranges in the early morning (around 08:00). The light was low and so the Kodachrome didn't preform well, hence the B&W. Note 61-0076 is named "Pandora's Play Thing". Martin
  4. Some Thud help if you can.... Images of 59-1749 "Mr Toad"

    So, another.... was the Toad drawing taken from a well known image of the time or was it simply from the head of the SSgt Mx man? Martin
  5. Hi all, I just realised that I never posted any image of my Ouragan build from a couple of years ago. So, to put things right .... I am not proud of this one. Maybe that is why I didn't post it at the time ;). Martin
  6. Hi all, After a little masking - the dielectric panels and rear end, the underside is on. I used Colourcoats' ACSM01 Pale Blue Grey as it pretty much matches the images I have of the subject machine. It seemed to go on okay - you be the judge. Next will be the upper side camo colours - three tone sand/brown/green. I'm not entirely happy with the forward airbrake housing but at this stage it'll have the be okay. The rear one seems to have blended in okay. The re-worked canopy masks seem to have worked so that's two things to smile about. Martin
  7. Compressor Oil

    They need oiling?
  8. buying a new compressor and airbrush

    Can I re-light this one? I currently use a simple AS-18 (one of those Chinese made ones) that has done me well with my Badger 200.However, she is starting to make some odd noises - a bit like the piston is unbalanced. It may be time for a new one, although I don't want to spend money unless I have to. If I need to replace her what would be a good option? I build 1/72 aircraft, if that helps. Thanks. Martin
