  1. I am currently working up to starting my first kit in a great number of years, and I've noticed a lot of talk about how good/bad the paints are these days. I used to use Humbrol enamel tins back in the day (1990s), but it seems from some comments that they've changed the recipe and gone downhill. As my first model I'm looking to build an ADV Tornado in 1:72, so lots of shades of grey. I don't have an airbrush so the paint will be manually brushed on. Has anyone got any good recommendations - I am prepared to ditch Humbrol forever if there is a decent alternative.
  2. Slight hijacking of the thread, but I'm looking for some 1:72 F3 / ADV serials - the small white ones on the fin. Any suggestions on where to look for a bulk-decal sheet?
  3. Thanks for this. A prototype F2 will be part of 2017 I think.
  4. I'll have a look at that one. Thanks for all the help you've all given me.
  5. Thanks for all the good suggestions. Does anyone know if there are any overseas units represented. I found a RSAF 29 Sqn set in a folder yesterday during a search, but I don't recall seeing any for the Italian ADVs that were borrowed from the RAF?
  6. I've recently rejoined model-making after a gap of about 25 yrs and have noticed that some of the decals I'm looking for are either too old, out of stock or discontinued. I'm particularly looking for Tornado F3 decals in 1:72, so Xtradecals, Model Alliance and Modeldecal. My aim is to eventually represent all units that flew the ADV. I've tried Hannants, eBay (cough).... am I looking in the wrong places?
  7. Just a short description of why I'm here. I started Ted making Airfix kits (and others) about 30 years ago. Always planes, and for some reason all in black, despite what the colour should have been. My favourites were UK aircraft starting with the Lightning, up to and including the Tornado. After a gap of about 25 years I'm back making kits, though this time I'm concentrating on Tornados only. Any help gratefully received, and if there's anything I can do just ask.
