  1. Tamiya Aircraft Choice

    Thanks, my LHS sells it for 12.50 so after I finish the three which I have, I will get that.
  2. Tamiya Aircraft Choice

    Thanks John for the recommendation, I will definitely look into the Skyray, but as I do not have the Metalcote spray, I am a bit worried about the results.
  3. Italeri F-51D Mustang 1/72

    Thanks for all the replies guys, your advice is really useful, and as for my next one, it is either a red arrows hawk or an academy Zero Best Wishes BetaSingh
  4. Hello all This is my Italeri F-51D Mustang, and before I go on with the photos, there are a few things I would like to clear up first, The kit? The kit is pretty good, the only problem I had was the fit between the wings and the fuselage, but apart from that, went on a dream. Some of the yellow decals for the blue edges of the wingtips were slightly too long, but I forgot to cut them off, and I painted it with Humbrol 56 Aluminium and a mix of Aluminium and Silver. I also had my first attempt at some sort of weathering, by trying to create some panel colour variations (I don't know whether that counts as weathering so correct me if I'm wrong), and I also did some oil stains, which unfortunately aren't visible on these pictures. Overall, I feel it is pretty good, and that the colour variations on the fuselage were nice, but that I still have some way to go before my models reach the standard of those seen on Britmodeller. And so, on with the pictures https://imgur.com/gallery/IXkZu Kind Regards BetaSingh
  5. Tamiya Aircraft Choice

    Thanks for the advice, and how would the Hs-129 stack up against the Spitfire MkVb by Italeri, as I've heard the MkIV isn't good at all but I do not know about the MkVb, which is also £3 cheaper. Best Wishes BetaSingh

    Thanks for reminding me about the F-51, I'll put up an RFI ASAP, it was my first attempt at weathering. Best Wishes BetaSingh
  7. Tamiya Aircraft Choice

    Thanks for the reply, but my LHS doesn't stock the Italeri ones, just the Tamiya ones, so out of those two, which one would you pick? Best wishes BetaSingh
  8. Tamiya Aircraft Choice

    Hello all I have found a good deal on two nice looking Tamiya 1/72nd scale kits, but I do not know which one to get. Both are the same price, £8.99, and they are the McDonnell Douglas AV-8B Harrier and the Henschel Hs129. Both seem like nice kits made in the 90s (As I am comparing a WW2 aircraft with a modern one, I didn't know where to put this, so if necessary admin please move) but I really don't know which one is better so all advice and tips about either kit is appreciated, as well as which one you would personally get. Regards BetaSingh
  9. Thanks for the reference, although unfortunately, my modelling is very budget, so if I could buy the tools that you guys have, I would, but I try to do the best that I can with what I have, although I'll definitely have a look at that masking tape.
  10. Thanks, as you wanted me to ask, how do you know about the masking tape, and I'm sorry to disappoint, but Number 5 is an Italeri F-51D Mustang.
  11. F-51D Mustang Fuselage Colour

    Thanks all, I don't have an airbrush (should've specified earlier) so I can't use the Alclad route, but I'll probably test them and go with whichever looks closest. Best Wishes BetaSingh
  12. F-51D Mustang Fuselage Colour

    Would a Humbrol Aluminium Metalcote be a closer option for the fuselage, as I think you guys have said to use plain Aluminium for the wings? The problem is I don't know whether my local hobby shop stocks Humbrol 27001/02, and would getting variations in the Aluminium paint just be the better option if I can't get Metalcote?
