  1. Figure build sequence

    Thanks for the replies gents, my way of assembly/painting appears not to far different from yours, so will continue as is, as it works for me.
  2. Hi Guys. I have been building figures for a few number of years, but one thing still puzzles me. Do you fit the headress at same time as the figure build, or do you paint the head and then add the headress afterwards. Secondly do you paint inaccessable areas while building or do you complete figure then paint? Thanks
  3. Thanks to everyone at NSMMG for a splendid show
  4. High Flight

    If you can catch it on the box well worth watching for the aircraft flying shots, another one to watch for is a film called Conflict of Wings, good shots of Swift fighters based in the UK.
  5. AIR-Graphics Models

    Just enquiring if anybody has had any dealings with AIR-Graphics Models, run by Gary Madgwick. They appear to offer a wide range of detailing sets, and a few decal sets as per the old Model Alliance sets.
  6. 1/72 Airfix Skytrain assembly difficulties

    This kit is a reasonably good kit to assemble, building one myself at the moment, the floor/bulkhead assy can cause small fit problems around 1mm but with carefull fitment will fit fuselage halves. Can you post a picture of the assembled cockpit / floor / bulkhead sections, as it sounds as though something has possibly been put in the incorrect place. Derek

  10. IPMS East Sussex - July 8th

    I am now able to confirm that we will have in attendance on the day, a Mr Mark Thompson from Plastech in Newhaven. For those of you who are not aware he is from the factory in Newhaven that produce the Airfix kits in the UK, he will be bringing along a small display of the items being produced in the UK. So you may well be able to have a lot of your questions and queries answered.

    Se Sean is quite correct, exactly as he says, the large one is also free all day. We also have this year use of the front foyer area for the competition and exhibitors, and if all goes to plan there will be a special display exhibitor, more info when we have confirmed. Please note that there are roadworks being carried out in the vicinity,so you will need to follow local diversion signs in High street, it just means entering the venue from the other end of the High Street Look forward to seeing fellow Britmodellers there, come and make yourself known, just look for the Blue shirts. Despite our extra best efforts, we cannot get any form of hot food on premises, so apologies in advance no Bacon butties. Derek
