  1. 1/48 RAF Phantom markings

The following sheets are out of production but do turn up on eBay occasionally: - Airdoc 48007 Almark AKA4802 Xtradecal X00248 Xtradecal X00148 If you Google 1/48 RAF Phantom decals you can see what options are on the sheets.
  2. Hobbyboss 1/48 Tucano

    Very disappointing.
  3. Hobbyboss 1/48 Tucano

    My 1/48 Hobbyboss EMB 312 Tucano has just arrived, bought because they advertised it as having an RAF option, only to find you can't build a Tucano T1 out of the box as they only include a 3 bladed prop spinner and not the 4 blade the T1 has, yet include 4 prop blades??!! There may be other details that are incorrect that I haven't spotted yet. Looks like a perfect oppertunity for the aftermarket brigade to produce a Tucano T1 update set - please.
  4. It would be quite acceptable to have your Firestreaks in overall green. These were often carried as ballast rounds as they generated a small amount of lift. Lightnings selected for display flying almost always had them fitted. If you google XS904 at Bruntingthorpe you will see it has them fitted.
  5. Wingnut Wings

    They are not my area of interest, but I can certainly appreciate a well built model or two. Excellent work.
  6. SMW 2017 Telford 11th & 12th November

    As a location Telford is spot on being roughly the centre of the country. The car parking at the venue is out of the hands of the IPMS and has always been the same. If I arrive early enough I'll park there, otherwise I use the one opposite the bus station, short walk and £1 all day on a Sunday. I did attempt to offer to help with the issuing of the members bands but the centre staff wouldn't let me through as I didn't have a band! Enjoyed my day and have no complaints except for the individuals that need to be introduced to soap.
  7. SMW 2017 Telford 11th & 12th November

    A very busy show this year. As an IPMS member I turned up at 9am to get in but couldn't be bothered waiting outside in the queue so sat down with a few other like minded people until the queue died down and got in around 9.30am. I popped out around midday and there was still a queue of people paying to get in, never seen that before so late in the day. Bought a few bits and pieces but made the usual mistake of spotting something worth having, but deciding to carry on and return later only to find it had long gone!
  8. Excellent!
  9. Revell 1/48 Tornado ADV

    Mine arrived from Jadlam today and the decals are in perfect register. (z suffix).
  10. Scarlet, we're having a reunion at Bruntingthorpe if your interested ? Mally "why me" is organising it its the weekend of 8th Sept.


  11. Lightning F6 XS928

    Pitot cover is made from tissue paper soaked in PVA glue and masking tape for the red tags. I've got an original one in my garage that I was able to get measurements from.😀
  12. Lightning F6 XS928

    I used Mr Hobby, Tamiya and Alclad paints, Promodeller panel wash, dirt streaks were my own mix.
  13. Finished this a little while ago but forgot to post the photos. Airfix 1/48 Lightning F6 finished as XS928 'AD' 5Sqn March 87. Extra's used include a True Details cockpit, Eduard etch set and a few scratch built bits. Decals from various sources including a few home made ones. I had been wanting to build 928 as it was the last Lightning I had the pleasure of working on before I was posted out of Binbrook in March 87 as the station started to wind down. Me in the cockpit of 928 just before towing it out to the line.
  14. Lightning roundels

    Low viz (pink/blue) fin flashes are also wrong.
