  2. British Phantoms

    Phantom help needed!! Just embarking on the route to a couple of Brit Phantoms using the 1/48th Hase kits. I want to build an FGR2 but only have a couple of boxings of the Fg1. What do I need to change? I seem to remember something about the rear horizontal tails being different if so are these able to be "Borrowed" from another Hase F4 Kit. Thanks in advance RG

  4. Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year to you all. I would like to share my last build of the bench with Kinetics new 2 seat Harrier. There is a little bit of a story around this kit so to keep it brief the kit arrived on the 14th October and work started immediately with a deadline for the kit to be on display at Telford just four weeks later. For those eagle eyed modellers amongst you it was on the IPMS Lancashire club display at SMW. Cant go into too much detail as the build will be in print. But a much improved build than their two Sea Harriers and a first in 1/48th scale injection moulded plastic. A thoroughly enjoyable built any one who thought NMFs were difficult than they should try gloss black! All out the box with Tamiya gloss black and Eduard RBF tags. Thanks for looking Rick G
  5. Kinetic 1/48 T-Harrier...any good?

    Hi All, While you all wait in anticipation of their pending arrival here in the U.K. Here is a little taste of what you get, for the eagle eyed amongst you at SMW this was on display on the IPMS Lancashire stand. It got the royal seal of approval too from Raymond and Sylvia aka Mr and Mrs Kinetic at Scale Model World. Rick G.

  8. Kinetic 1/48 T-Harrier...any good?

    I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy for review and will appear in SAM in due course. There are some changes to the assembly of the wing and intake sections that were the Achilles heel of both the FA2 and FRS1. Still needs a little care and attention to detail in test fitting the parts with some sanding needed in places. Super decal sheet as well,covering nearly a dozen airframes. Hope this is of help Rick G
  9. Hi All, Not posted anything new here for a while, none the less been lurking in the background looking in now and again at your builds. This is my take on Zvezda's SU-33 Flanker D in 1/72nd scale. This is a fantastic kit in terms of fit and detail and well worth a look if you want to add the Sea Flanker to your collection. My build is out of the box with only Eduard seat belts added plus a Master Model metal pitot. Paint was my first outing with MRP and was a pleasure o use. Decals are from from the kit and worked a treat. Thanks for looking Rick G

  13. Airfix Jet Provost Mk3

    Hi, Most modellers have complained about the decals in these kits, and I also found the Xtradecal aftermarket ones not to be any better. I used hot water to apply them with this makes them a little more flexable then Daco Red strong setting soultion on the day glo strips on my build. I still had to resort to a little touch up with Hmbrol 205 in some places. Great kit though. Hope this helps, Rick
