  1. Tamiya 1/48 N1K1 Shiden

    Slow progress, but progression nonetheless Engine and prop done. There's 40 lengths of wire in that engine. N1K1-5 by Jazzy Jase, on Flickr Painted with Alclad, Tamiya acrylics and Vallejo Model Color. Weathered with Mig pigments and potions. N1K1-5 by Jazzy Jase, on Flickr
  2. I had the same problem as you. Hadn't received one for ages. Signed up again using a different email address and now I get it every week.
  3. Which Mosquito book?

    Thanks chaps, checking your suggestions out on Amazon I had to laugh at some of the prices the sellers are asking for "as new" copies... Second hand for me! :-)
  4. Which Mosquito book?

    Hi Britmodellers, Looking for recommendations on which Mosquito book to read. Not from a modelling or technical perspective but more from an aircrew/operational/true account point of view. Cheers, Jason
  5. Hi Britmodellers, It's been around 10 months since I last did any modelling. I've been suffering from a severe case of modellers block and also some personal issues. Trying to get mojo back has been difficult. My (very understanding) wife actually came up with the solution when she suggested moving my modelling desk from the garage to the dining room for a while. I didn't want to crack-on with the P-51 I've been tinkering with, fearing being overwhelmed by all the aftermarket goodies I have intended for it, so I decided to build this old N1K1 I had in the stash, pretty much OOB. I really like the artwork on the box, so I'm going to be reasonably restrained with the weathering; None of the massive paint chips you normally see on these models. N1K1-1 by Jazzy Jase, on Flickr I've finished the small and simple cockpit. Enhanced with some lead wire behind the instrument panel and seat belts made from a leftover Coke can. N1K1-2 by Jazzy Jase, on Flickr I airbrushed Tamiya acrylics, and hand-painted the details with Vallejo Model Colors. I'm not concerned about their accuracy. Having fun is the name of the game with this one. N1K1-3 by Jazzy Jase, on Flickr Weathering consisted of Mig filters and finally some Mig pigments to dirty it up a subtly.

  6. Fantastic. I really like that.
  7. Auto focus Arggghhhh!

    I don't think you mean spot metering. The metering mode changes how the camera evaluates for exposure. You might have more luck switching to a single focus point (the centre one is usually the most accurate). Make sure the auto focus is set to continuous and not one-shot.
  8. Eduard 1/48 Royal Class Spitfire Under £70!

    Is it too late to sign up for one of these?
  9. What is your greatest flying experience?

    Had a flight in a Wessex as a young Air Cadet. Sitting opposite the door, as it took off it banked right and left me staring at the ground hoping I didn't fall out. Loads of low-level flying and very interesting to be able to watch the pilots feet above you. Won't forget that one.
  10. Eduard 1/48th Spitfire IXc available from their Website

    Mine arrived today. Have to say, the kit looks amazing. Slight problem with the Brassin seat though. Hopefully Eduard will send a replacement... Eduard 1/48 Spitfire IXc Late by Jazzy Jase, on Flickr Eduard 1/48 Spitfire IXc Late by Jazzy Jase, on Flickr
  11. First BA A380 fully painted

    I've flown on the Emirates A380's 4 or 5 times now and it's a great aircraft, but I have to say I find that BA livery very boring.

    Just received this email from Hannants.
  13. RAF WWII Roundels

    Come to think of it, I'm sure the mixes I have are from Ad Astra masks too so your theory on the blue could very well be correct.
  14. RAF WWII Roundels

    Interestingly, the mixes I posted differ from the mixes Troy posted so you may want to try both out and see which you prefer.
