  3. Early RAF Hercules colour question.

    had a really good day at the Cosford show today. Spoke to a nice Gent who had built a cracking little example of a 1/144 Beverly, he said he used xtra acrylic Gulf armour XA1813. as well as something i had not thought about but night Black underneath XA 1012. Looked good to me. Thanks all.
  4. Early RAF Hercules colour question.

    thanks all I will be seeing what I can find at Cosford on Sunday. Regards Glenn.
  5. Early RAF Hercules colour question.

    Hi All A question to the wise ? Could anyone point me in the right direction, I am looking for a colour call for the lighter shade of beige on the early beige/brown Hercules. I have Xtra colour RAF light stone and middle stone would either of these be right. Thanks in advance Glenn.
  6. A Models Jetstreams Decals

    I have one of each on order, in my best super hero type voice "This could be a job for Xtra Decal". They could take a look at the Devon while they are at it as the blue on those looks a little light as well. whats your thoughts Glenn.
  7. ACE Model 2017 - catalogue online

    Does anyone know if they still intend to do the Salamander ??? regards Glenn.
  8. 1/72 Airfix Phantom

    I agree with everything above. And won't be disposing of my Fujimi kits any time soon. One thing I've noticed different between this kit and the Victor also the new AEW Shackleton is the plastic. Not only is the plastic in the Victor and Shackleton darker but it isn't as soft, seems to make the panel lines crisper. look at the difference between the panel lines on the Shackleton MR.2 and the AEW. Regards Glenn.
  9. Airfix 1/72 Phantom FG.1 in Stock at Hornby

    "And now for something totally different " ? well maybe not totally, look at the wessex plane gaurd on the box front, would it be a HU.5 in 1974/75. Should it not be a HAS 1. if this is wrong it has totally put me off buying this kit. only joking Glenn.
  10. Airfix 1/72 Phantom FG.1 in Stock at Hornby

    Hi All I am really enjoying this thread especially the bits about colours. Have any of you read the article in July 2017 edition of SAM ( I haven't yet ) magazine suggesting that the RN colour is DSG instead of EDSG, can anyone shed light on this. Regards Glenn
  11. FAA Phantom roundels

    Imagine Falkland's war Phamtoms all over EDSG or Barley grey with royal navy titles.
