  1. Dambusters Lancaster query

    Brilliant . Just what I needed Cheers John
  2. Dambusters Lancaster query

    I'm just building the Revell Dambusters Lancaster and the instructions show the large bomb aimer's blister and the panel under the nose with the small oval window . Does anyone have any idea if this is correct ? John Green Nantwich, Cheshire
  3. Your first aircraft model ?

    My first one was the original Airfix Folland Gnat some time in the late 1960s . In those days it was in a plastic bag , had 4FTS markings rather than Red Arrows & came with underwing slipper tanks & rockets . I made the most appalling mess of it , but something must have appealed because I've been modeling throughout the entire period since .
  4. Cosworth DFV fuel line query

    Thank you gentlemen John
  5. Cosworth DFV fuel line query

    What I meant was where do the other ends go ?
  6. I'm currently building an old 1/20 Tamiya Wolf WR1 & , as is normal with Tamiya's DFV-engine kits , it supplies ignition leads , but no fuel injection lines . All full-size DFV photos show clear fuel lines attached to the injectors on top of the engine , the front 2 running backwards & the rear 2 running forwards , but however much I study photos I cannot figure out where these lines go . Can anyone throw any light on this ? John Green Nantwich , Cheshire
  7. Go for it . If you change the radome & fit a decent canopy , the Matchbox kit can produce a surprisingly good model , as my fiancée's article on ARC shows http://www.arcair.com/Gal4/3001-3100/Gal3079-FG1-Vickers/00.shtm
  8. Ordered mine yesterday . Eagerly awaiting their arrival .
  9. KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

    That looks great Jan . What colour do you recommend for The Burberry ? There's no colour shown on the illustration
  10. Where can I source tail plain swastikas ?

    Why would you need paypal ? Hannants take credit cards .
  11. Mirage F1 cockpit colour query

    Excellent Thank you gentlemen John
  12. Mirage F1 cockpit colour query

    Gents I was under the impression that the Mirage F1 cockpit was black , but I've just started the Hasegawa kit & the instructions say "aircraft grey" . Can anyone enlighten me ? While we're on the subject , can anyone also advise on the cockpit colours for the Mirage IIIC & IIIE ? As always , any assistance is greatly appreciated . John Green Nantwich , Cheshire
  13. Looking for opinions on 1/72 Mirage 2000 kits

    Thank you for the information gentlemen Much appreciated John
  14. Gents Whilst browsing Hannants the other day I came across a number of Syhart Decals sheets for some absolutely stunning Mirage 2000 commemorative schemes . I can see one or two looming in my future , but realized that I know nothing about the various 1/72 kits . I'm assuming that the Revell & Italeri kits are the same , but are they better or worse than the Heller kits ? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated . John Green Nantwich , Cheshire
