  1. In that case, it will do for me
  2. why does it mention the Trumpeter kit if it's a new tool? Or is it just a re-box?
  3. Swedish option isn't quite the same. It now has a Yellow spinner instead of red
  4. I also received a Revell Star Wars Vader Tie Fighter from my sister in our Secret Santa yesterday I was expecting a pre painted click together thing but it's a proper nice little glue and paint kit I can see myself getting a few more of these
  5. Airfix 1/48 Red Arrows set Vulcan:God of Fire book And FIFA 17 and Call of Duty for PS4 which means I'll not be building any models
  6. I bought the other XJ220
  7. Vulcan I probably would but not a Hercules
  8. Correct orange is GM code 70 Flame Red (in 1975) or Orange Flame (in 1976). Variations of colour on the cars used, especially early series cars, was due to different colour cars being painted orange. In later series they primed them before painting to eliminate the variations in shades. However, try as I might, I've not managed to find GM70 in an aerosol or otherwise in the UK. For my GL build using the Revell kit as a base, I'll go for what looks right, probably Hemi Orange. I did build the AMT version in Humbrol 18 over a white base and it didn't look too far off
  9. Hopefully Hawk T2. Anything less would be a bit of an insult
  10. Afternoon Chris,

    Just had a root around my parts tub regards F4 bits. Not much there but I've got a pair of Hasegawa MB seats painted but without any seat belts on them, a pair of rear cans also painted and some (4) 1/48 under fuselage Sparrow/Skyflash whizzy things still on the sprue. If these are of any use to you then you can have them.



  11. I've just broke my previous £40 high for the SH Viggen in 1/48. In a fit of madness I've shelled out 50 notes on a 1/48 Airfix Buccaneer twin boxing. I am hoping to offset the cost by selling the FAA half when it arrives as I only want the RAF half and don't think I could handle building 2 of the beasts
  12. Eduard

    What are the poly caps for anyway? Never found a use for them or am I missing something?
  13. I did mine from the Airfix, didn't know about the tail fillet when I built it Sneb I think was old Airfix from the spares, resin CBLS from Giorgio if I remember rightly and early seats are Aeroclub white metal jobs. Also used Italeri gun pod as its better detailed and the correct size
  14. Coil packs or possibly crank position sensor. Faulty crank sensors can make cars run awful. Obviously not the same but had them fail on a couple of my Saabs, cheap fix and they ran perfect once replaced Best getting it connected to a diagnostic reader, should usually be able to pinpoint the error code if you've had a check engine light, codes will be stored in the ecu
  15. I've just bought this 'new' fast car. 99 9-3 Turbo Auto. 98k miles, good service history and in excellent condition and health. Purchase price, £395. It's only the low pressure turbo but it's fast enough for my 4 mile drive to work and much faster than my 2.2 diesel
