  1. Chucked mine into the bin also. There are land tip sites full of the stuff. You do not need to buy it. Last I heard they were using it to paint the lines on football pitches. Laurie PS Vallejo one is good for fiddly bits. A wet finger does a good job. But no good in large dollops or where used in a structural joint.
  2. Not surprised Ian you've got your wires crossed. That's a tin can. Laurie
  3. Thanks Ed. Had not realized italics made a difference. He/Laurie
  4. Need help. Please. Could you point me towards how the RAF colour scheme would be for the Paveway and the Bol 304. I have found virtually every other weapon on a Harrier but these two. I have the Harrier Interest Group pictures of a Paveway but they are the manufacturers sales photos although perhaps that is how they look for the RAF. Thanks Laurie
  5. Thanks Kirk Advice- do not give away your address on here Regards Laurie
  6. Thanks Kirk for that snippet I just love the names for the British aircraft. So much more interesting than names like Z56 or even B17. One for you Kirk Paveway II. Could you point me towards how the RAF colour scheme would be for the Paveway and the Bol 304. I have found virtually every other weapon on a Harrier but these two. Also have the Harrier Interest Group pictures of a Paveway but they are the manufacturers. Grateful if you could assist. Thanks Laurie
  7. Well I am deranged. I have used Tamiya paint for the first time. I expected a disaster. Got to say I am surprised being a Vallejo Fan. Slightly smoother than Vallejo. Strange though as the lighter grey is much smoother than the dark grey. any reason for that ? The other advantage which is a boon the Tamiya paint is so much more robust compared to Vallejo. So here is my Tamiya type Harrier so far. Just realized why "Harrier" and of course the Harrier bird which can hover. How naive can you get ? Seems quite deeply. Even the the Harrier air has the wing shape of a Harrier bird. Laurie http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// http://

  9. Hi Andre Strange it came up last night but not now. Usse thise address http://www.harriersig.org.uk/models/harriercoloursv112.pdf and a list will pop up. Look for the below.. This morning this came top of the list. It also mention PDF which is what the list is. RAF/RN Harrier Colours - Harrier SIG Laurie
  10. Andre This should solve all your Harrier needs. This list also gives the equivalent for all the most popular paints. Laurie http://www.harriersig.org.uk/models/harriercoloursv112.pdf Oh Harrier Harrier you just fly like a bird a blast of air & you perform the absurd my favourite with those just lovable wings and so up down with a side to side swing you float on air and, to some, much feared but to me, Harrier, you are just my little Shar Laurie
  11. Regret this is the world. Of some people. Their mother and father forgot how to spell please and thank you. Another "very much" an add on. My apologies is another one. Amazing part is that with the use of these kind words the world runs far better and people are happier. I am amazed in a local shop how shoppers grunt after the assistant has volunteered "have a nice day". They will not of course. I hope the cream bun, or what ever, chokes them. No they will throw part they do not want into the gutter. The other one. Some on asks if any one has a part available. Yes and you send it. I send bits with out postal charging. But it would be rather nice to have them say "I will send you the postage" but no. On the other hand there are some who are very nice and do all the very nice things. I like them. Laurie. Just off to smack the cat--------- no joking.
  12. I think you have to think in models not manufacturers. If you want an Apache then there are quite a few builds, final showings and reviews out there on most stuff. Best is to read as many as possible. Put Revell Apache into the search and on the second page after the adverts I counted 9. Similarly Hasegawa Apache I countered 10. These should give a good idea of how well the model built. Not to forget that some manufacturers buy out models and re-badged under their own name. Plus some like Airfix are re-making their moulds and making models of a top grade plastic. Actually for addons, resin,decals, PE and castings this would work well to be listed. Laurie
  13. For me most are good but none are perfect. A lot depends on how old the model may be. For instance some Airfix are horrible but the new Herrick range are some of the best. A Revell Apache recently was horrible and I ditched it but all other Revells I have built have been OK. A Tamiya Harrier was detail bare but a Swordfish was absolutely superb. Hasegawa Apache very nice. Hasagawa Harrier at present good but some info wrong some detail incorrect and instructions worst ever. But they are nice models to build Interesting subject. I have often wondered. What if manufacturers started producing perfect models. Would that be a good thing. We would have nothing to moan at. Also cost us a fortune as we would be building them so fast. Often wonder at the designer of models. Do they look at the detail and think we will make that difficult. Do they implant the detail in the the piece or produce another bit to fit on. A manufacturers problem is to design produce and market a model with in the reach of the average pocket. Laurie
