  1. Airfix Napoleonics

    Airfix 01746 Royal Horse Artillery - an old set restored, one man missing
  2. I can't believe that Rolls Royce still don't make FAB1s
  3. I always liked the Airfix 54mm figures. Nicely sculpted and with interchangeable parts. This was the French Polish Lancer (02553) converted to a British Private, 9th Light Dragoons (Lancers), 1817
  4. I read this as any classic Airfix kits - sorry I won't trouble you any more
  5. Airfix 1/12 Bentley 4.5 Ltr Supercharged 1930 (09398)
  6. The good thing about using oils is, because they take longer to dry, it gives you a chance to manipulate the colours. Drying times will depend on how thickly (or thinly) you applied the paint. A thin coat should dry in a day or so (depending upon the ambient conditions). The first horses I painted with oils took over a week to dry - I'd put the paint on a bit thickly
  7. The next set up for restoration are these Airfix 01746 Royal Horse Artillery
  8. Airfix Napoleonics

    The 23rd with the 14th - not quite the whole set of 01745 (I had to steal some heads)
