  1. IPMS Avon Show - Sunday 13 August 2017, Thornbury

    Thanks neilh, I noticed it was rather wet in the cubicle but noticed it outside, if it's just water on the floor thats ok, at first I just hoped it wasn't someone who missed so to speak and ended on the floor
  2. A330 Wingtip paint help

    Graeme H - Yes thats what I mean, the tip itself is white like the Swiss example but I was wondering about the bit that joins on to the wing on the kit, which I was wondering if it is part of the wing itself. I shall paint that grey then. Thank you all for the help just the answers I was looking for, thank you! James.
  3. A330 Wingtip paint help

    Hello all, I'm trying to find out about painting the flat bit on a A330 wingtip. I'm talking about the 'horizontal' bit that joins onto the wing. Would this actually be the grey continuing on from the wing? I can't find much close up pictures but it looks like it is the same light grey from the wings and the 'vertical' bit if you like would be white (for the one I'm doing) Any help appreciated! James
  4. IPMS Avon Show - Sunday 13 August 2017, Thornbury

    Brilliant show, time seemed to go a bit faster spent more time browsing and talking to people about their builds than I did at our stand. I actually found it quite interesting to spend time looking at other types of models that I don't build but taking an interest on what someone has spent time to build. Canteen was ok, bacon rolls were very popular that they were selling quicker than they could get them up, that was about 0930. The toilets seemed to be rather wet on the floor!
  5. Wow! That is very nice! For a mash up of decals you have made it look very convincing, looking at the pictures I would have thought that it was from an A310 decal sheet. You've done a grand job there, ever thought about making it a bit grubby? (Not a critizism at all by the way, just a pure question, so you don't have to answer if you don't want to)
  6. Thank you! Pinky coffeeboat - yes made a start on my first heavy, the Revell A330 Airbus house markings boxing. Doing an Air Inter one using Flightpaths decals, and the Thai Airways sheet from my other A330 kit for the windows and details, as neither the Airbus House or Air Inter sheets have windows (and not much detailing on the Airbus house one either) Going to start selling an early built model soon, time to move some older stuff on to clear space for the new builds
  7. Hello all, Having completed the Air Baltic Avro, I have finally got round to finishing my Iberia One World A320. The kit is the Revell A320 (The Edelweiss boxing) which I recall picking up at the local toy shop, and managed to haggle a lower price for it too (Can't remember how much) but the kit itself was alright, the usual filler was required but that was only around the fuselage join, not much problems elsewhere it terms of fitting. Only problem was every part suffered flash, and there was a few pieces that suffered quite badly, not an issue obviously as it comes off easy, just delays the process a bit. Spraying was easy, white coat was all that was needed for the body, though I manage to accidentally get some green paint down the front side, so had to tidy and re-spray that bit, which set it back again. Lesson learnt, keep wet brushes and open paint pots well away from the model! The One World, windows, doors and Iberia related decals are from Classic-Airlines, and are lovely to work with. The rest are from the stock Edelweiss decal sheet. Thanks for looking! James.
  8. You've done a goid job there, that blue is fantastic! Having seen plenty of these at Amsterdam there would be one thing I'd do, dry-brush around the front/back, nothing excessive, just adds a tad bit of weathering. Only a tip/idea by the way, I'm not telling you what to do
  9. Well you did a much better job than I could do, looks fantastic!! I hope to get the new MD-11 someday, will you be doing one, either Civil or Cargo?
  10. Modelarstwoalexander decals

    I can vouch for Ebay seller Kosciuv Found the Giodecals BA 757 Blue Peter special on his Ebay site, decided to trust the 100% feedback, paid the price plus postage to UK, and they landed through the letterbox no more than a week later, recommended seller
  11. Hello all, A very big long shot but someone out there just may have the answer! Could someone suggest any rattle can paint matches of either Tamiya or Halfords spray's please? No mixing paints, nothing that requires a spray gun (I don't have one and not investing in one), just a simple suggestion for rattle can sprays please. Doesn't have to be 100% of course, anything very close is appreciated (I.E looks like Etihad, not EasyJet ) Any help is much appreciated!! Cheers James.
  12. Hello all, It's taken many month's for me to complete my BAe 146 model, problems having time to spray it was one thing, but some other problems came about through it's whole process. Originally this was for the group build. I picked up the Revell BAe 146 TNT kit at the Yeovilton model show with the plan to use the supplied TNT decals. It was then pointed out to me that the TNT decals are for the 146-200, and having looked up their fleet, they only had -200's and -300's. I then put it aside to await other decal's, and then sometime later fumbling through my decal book I found some Air Baltic RJ70 decal's! I then ordered the DACO BAe 146/Avro RJ stenciling set and made it into Air Baltic's RJ70 YL-BAL It was slightly tricky, the only real major problem was the wheels, it wasn't right until the end that I found I had knackered the undercarriage, it wasn't straight and made putting the wheel's in very difficult. In the end it was decided to shove the carriage door's on in the closed position, cut a hole and stick it on a spare Airfix stand, and it works perfectly, and can be displayed banking left or right, perfect! The Air Baltic decals are from Flightpath, yes I know when I built the EasyJet 737-200 I recall saying on here that I'll never use Flight Path again. Yes I had some trouble with these, not as much as last time though, I've learnt that lot's of water and being EXTREMELY careful does work, but being extremely careful isn't always easy, they fold the moment your concentration drops for a nanosecond. Would I use them again? I probably would actually because they do some different and classic stuff that usually you can't find elsewhere. And I can only pick the decal's up at show's as they are hard to come by secondhand online. Anyway here is the final outcome: DSC_0040 DSC_0037 DSC_0035 DSC_0034 DSC_0032 Thanks for looking
  13. FAA Yeovilton 2017 model shows cancelled

    That is a point though, same as if I was to visit the STEAM museum in Swindon, I'd go on a non-event day otherwise I wouldn't want to pay full price and not get to see the exhibit's clearly, but then I suppose people can check the FAA site to see what events are on and not go if the model show isn't on. So what about the Wedding Exhibition in October 2017/2018 at the FAA, Is that in the halls? Will that also spoil the exhibits or will it not matter because it's not a model show?
  14. FAA Yeovilton 2016

    Oops sorry, yes it was Mr Models that used to be there sorry Little-Cars. Not sure if Little-cars space will be there, if they are binning the sim for another display, what amount of space will it take? That's assuming it's gone by Feburary of course
  15. FAA Yeovilton 2016

    Slightly off topic but in regards to the museum are they having a shift around? I noticed the Flight Simulator is closed for good and will be removed, but I understand there is to be a new exhibit and a change around for next year? Not sure whether it's to do with some of the restoration works going on, but at the show I noticed a Helicopter filled in the space where Little-Car's used to be
