  1. RAN Wessex 31A

    Thanks Steve, I thoroughly enjoyed that video. Martian
  2. RAN Wessex 31A

    Cool video, thanks for sharing! Martian
  3. New Me-262 Airfix 1/72

    Bought this kit myself this week so I have to be interested in your efforts here. Martian
  4. Supermarine's best? Mojo-restoration!

    Great to see you enjoying this build. Incidentally, is Crispo-bodging and new verb now? Sigh! The ever changing landscape of Earthling modelling speak! Bewildered of Mars
  5. Just got back from model club and got my original issue of the kit out and taped together. As I suspected, once a bit of flash has been trimmed off the canopy fits fine with no more than a smear of Krystal Klear being needed to blend it in. The canopy you have there does not look like it has been properly moulded as the original is clear and does not exhibit much lensing. If it still does not want to fit when you have tried the remedies suggested by our esteemed colleagues, I think you would be more than justified in asking for a replacement from Airfix. Martian
  6. I'm not sure that the canopy you have is properly formed. I have an original issue of this kit and will go and see what the fit is like for you. I certainly don't remember any problems when I built the kit as a small Martian. Martian
  7. Dornier Do 18-D

    Good work on the cutaway bits, the loo and the Wehrmacht toilet paper really do have to go in now! Martian
  8. Wessex HC2 1/32nd scale.

    That looks mighty impressive! Martian the Impressed
  9. Some kind of a very special AAA battery

    Those look like parakeets, in parts of the UK escaped birds have thrived and bred to sucah an extent that some people now consider them a pest. Martian
  10. Some kind of a very special AAA battery

    With all the options on figures, this should be a cracking diorama! Martian
  11. The landing lights certainly look the part! Martian
  12. Strangely enough, I have an Airfix Catalina and some Stoppel decals laid down for such a purpose. Martian
  13. RAN Fairey Firefly AS5

    That could well be the case and of course we have to allow for any repainting during the aircraft's life. I do remember seeing an instruction somewhere, ordering that RN aircraft were to have there wheel wells finished in the underside colour. I don't know if it is still the case but the Firefly in the Fleet Air Arm Museum last served as a target tug and even had the wheel wells in black and yellow. Martian
  14. I love stitching! Martian
