  1. RFC colour help needed

    Looking for help regarding PC10 and clear doped linen. Best matches for Tamiya? TIA
  2. Spray booths

    Have been asked by the boss what I want for Christmas. I've said a new spray booth that would take large scale aircraft kits. Had a look on the web and finding it hard to see much choice. Have seen one that looks ok but it's only available from the US and the costs take that one out of consideration. Any advice on where to get them from would be most welcome. TIA
  3. Spray booths

    Just been given a kitchen cooker hood extractor fan by somebody having a new fitted kitchen. May have a look at knocking one up myself using that

  6. RFC colour help needed

    So basically PC10 is a case of I'll do it as I think what's right and you prove me wrong
  7. RFC colour help needed

    Tried the WNW colour call out on their Camel Br.1 and to my eyes it look as though there is hardly any green tint at all. Intending on doing the Camel of a local ace (17 victories). His name was Edwin Swales who was born, lived and died about 5 miles from where I live. He kept a pice of fabric of one of his a/c and this was definitely green in colour.
  8. Spitfire LF Vb

    Nice looking Spitfire. For some srange reason I do like the clipped wings on a Spitfire, to me it makes it look more aggressive.
  9. Hurricane rag wing

    Does anybody do a rag wing conversion for the Airfix 1:48 scale Hurricane Mk.I (A05127)?
  10. Hurricane rag wing

    Find it strange that Airfix have done a rag wing in 1:72 scale. Wonder if they have any plans of a 1:48 kit in the future?
  11. Colour recommendation

    Looking for the humbrol or tamiya paint number for late WW1 battleship grey. tia
  12. Colour recommendation

    Cheers for that, will give them a look.
  13. Colour recommendation

    Should have stated it's Royal Navy
  14. Mk.V wheel colour

    Can't find the colour for the wheels of the female Mk.V tank. Toying with the idea of doing one that has shed one of it's tracks. I know they would most likely have been covered with dried mud but would also have shown a bit of colour. Also would the crew have gained access to the inside by the doors under the sponsons? TIA
  15. Mk.V wheel colour

    Cheers for the answer. Will probably go with Battleship grey.
  16. Tempest Mk.V to TT. Mk.V

    Thinking of doing the Special Hobby Tempest Mk.V as a TT. Mk.V if only to get away from the usual grey/green finish. liking the look of the high speed silver over yellow/black under surface.. Question is what are the main differences between the 2 versions. The decals given by Xtradecal give a/c NV994/D, which I believe was originally used by Pierre Clostermann with 3 sq. I should imagine canons and gun sight would be removed but anything else? any info regarding target drogue towing fittings? TIA
  17. Tempest Mk.V to TT. Mk.V

    Thanks for that. Very helpful
  18. German grey query

    Looking for the grey used by the Germans on their field guns etc. Would Tamiya XF63 be a good match? TIA
  19. Interior detail kits - advice sought

    I will be starting the Meng Mk.V male myself in the next couple of weeks. This has a full interior and can be built with various doors and hatches in the open position so a good portion of the insides should be visible. Not 100% sure but it may be possible to build it with the armament removed and the sponsons pushed in so as to show it in the transport mode. Can honestly say that this looks to be a stunning kit and can be done totally out of the box. Saying that though, I will be using the Aber gun set and have also ordered a set of the wider 26" tracks.

  20. Takom King Tigers

    Getting more and more into AFV's and noticed that Takom have three 1:35 scale King Tigers for release in the near future. One has a Porsche turret with zimmerit and the other two have the Henschel turret also with zimmerit. One of the Henschel offerings is marked up as a special edition. Any idea what makes this a special edition?
  21. Mk.V Meng kit

    Recently got my grubby mits on a Takom Mk.IV kit and was toying with the idea of doing a bit of internal detailing so as to have one of the doors open. Now I have found that Meng models do a Mk.V with a full interior. Being a newbie to AFV's, how do the Meng offerings rate?
  22. Mk.V book help

    Looking to make a start on the Meng Mk.V tank in the coming weeks but wanting to get some reference material first. Have seen the Osprey New Vanguard book on Amazon but before buying it I want to know if it has any good interior photos? If not, any books out there that has?
  23. Mk.V Meng kit

    Have just recieved the Meng Mk.V. I have also recently bought the Takom Mk.IV Hermaphrodite of the same person. Not had chance to have a proper look at the Meng kit yet but the part count is really impressive for the cost, even at full price.
  24. Mk.V Meng kit

    Struck lucky as there was one for sale on this site. Fraid it's now gone
  25. Mk.V Meng kit

    Thanks for the reply. Will have to treat myself to one in the near future.
