    I've always been an enamel guy, Bruce, I have never had problems with it ever, not even the fumes... but my go to paint is Testors Model Master Enamels, and I have only ever used one coat, works well for me... although I am going to come over to the 'dark' side of paint and am going to try some of the acrylics, soon..

  7. 2 Stage Merlins for Mosquito

    Oh sorry Ivand, I miss read it I have a set of the CMK ones, I found this on Ebay https://www.ebay.com/itm/Airwaves-1-72-resin-set-of-2-Two-Stage-Merlin-engines-for-the-British-Mosquito/182954137442?hash=item2a98ea9762:g:vL4AAOSweZJaLAGC May work for you...
  8. 2 Stage Merlins for Mosquito

    Yes, it seems Hannants from the UK have them still, https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/CMK4108 Give this a go, they are a bit pricey, but this seems to be the only game in town that I have seen, apparently the rivet counters say they are a tad short, and the best solution is to use the ones from the Airfix kit, but then there is a ton of wheel well work to do. I have this set in my stash to be used for my Spartan Air Services Mosquito B.35 conversion. The engines are of good quality and I am happy with them. Give Hannants a try..... let us know how you get along.. hope this helped you Jeff
  9. Flight of the Phoenix

    Probably the coolest model I have ever seen, awesomely well done...... the first movie was WAY better than the 're-make'... not sure why the movie folks have to mess with greatness...... you model is a great tribute... take a bow ! Jeff

  11. I really like the base you used as well..... you weathering talents are awesome, certainly not over done, looks battle worn......
  12. Hurricane No.1 Sq R.C.A.F photos, (thread edit)

    I would have to dig into my collection and re-read his memoir, and check some of the letters he sent me, we were VERY good friends, and corresponded a lot over the years..... I could also try to check the ORB....

    YO*N was a Mk IIb and was flown by P/O Alvin E.Harley from the base at Digby Lincs. The 'DO' on the cockpit is for his lovely wife Dorothy, his Spitfire MkVb had "DO II" on the cockpit

    One more update, I had a few minutes yesterday to sit at the becnh, and I fitted one of the two stage Merlins to the kit, and guys and gals...... the fit................... was PERFECT, and I mean perfect, I was really careful how I cut off the original engines, and when it came time to mount the new ones, the fit was outstanding, I will buy another few sets of these for sure...... just thought some of you may be interested to know.... I am a happy old man !! LOL
