  1. Best 1/48 f4u-1 kit

    No the bubbletop. I haven't got the birdcage in my hands so can't comment on that.
  2. Best 1/48 f4u-1 kit

    2 areas I prefer the Hobbyboss kit to the Tamiya one is the clear wingtip lights and the window frames are more defined, whereas they're vague on the Tamiya kit. I prefer the 1/72 Tamiya kit to the 1/48th one. Almost all the same detail but more defined window frames.
  3. Have the 1/48 AMG 109's been released yet?
  4. 1/32 Westland Whirlwind by Specialhobby

    About time we had a decent Whirland Westwind!
  5. All the Hurricane questions you want to ask here

    Thanks tango and interesting info.
  6. All the Hurricane questions you want to ask here

    Great photos and I see what you mean. Nice weathering opportunities though.......which is good.
  7. Humbrol tins

    I often use thinners to get rid of the paint but interesting idea.
  8. Humbrol tins

    Like many I've always had this problem. I've tried wiping the paint away but after a while that doesn't seem to work as even a small amount of paint seems to build up so the lid can't be fully closed properly.
  9. All the Hurricane questions you want to ask here

    Anyone else find it surprising how weathered the Hurricanes are in the photo above of 73 sqn? I take it those P reg's haven't had the metal wings for very long yet the wings especially look as if they've been heavily chipped with the bare metal showing through quite a bit.

    Thanks guys. Yes it's not easy to make things out and it's inconclusive so I'll probably carry on with one of the metal winged/ DH prop from this photo of 73 sqn..........
  11. All the Hurricane questions you want to ask here

    Troy before I finalise things and get on with decaling my Airfix kit as a metal winged BOF p reg from 73 sqn I thought I'd go back to this photo you posted for a final check http://www.asisbiz.com/il2/Hurricane/RAF-501Sqn-SD/images/Hawker-Hurricane-RAF-501Sqn-SDbeing-refueled-by-a-bowser-at-Bethenville-France-11th-May-1940-01.jpg Looks to have metal wings, looks to have a DH prop (though I'm not certain) but it also has the non pole mast which could be helpful. Do you or anyone else know what this particular aircraft from 501 sqn this might be?
  12. Painting Tamiya's Gloster Meteor (616 sqn)

    Thanks all! Great photo's and info.
  13. I'm making iit straight from the box and doing EE235 from 616 sqn and it says to paint it AS9 dark green and AS10 ocean grey on top and AS11 medium sea grey underneath but I was wondering if the Tamiya paints are a good match for these colours? I know this is a well known aircraft and has been discussed many times before and colours could vary quite a bit but also how quickly would those colours fade anyway seeing as it's 1945? Strangely enough also I can't find that many pics of 616 sqn Meteors of that time.
  14. How big will the wingspan be on this?
  15. All the Hurricane questions you want to ask here

    Thanks Troy and yes taking notes but it's the dates that are the main cause of confusion as you'll probably agree. So really it's back to a P from 73 squadron because of the wings. One thing I find hard to see too is the difference in the position of the landing lights on the fabric and metal wings. I can't see much difference so my eye obviously isn't as good on that as yours.
