  6. The Sea Fury rumour thread 2

    I have found that the cowling isnt a great fit. I originally glued the 2 halves together then added the rear part with the exhausts. The trouble with mine at least is that that then left a step , so the cowling panels that open on the real thing looked sunken. I have taken it apart and glued the top half of the cowling to the rear ring , then the bottom half. This then leaves a gap where the 2 halves should join that was easily filled with some putty. Its easier to deal with than it was. Also if you keep rotating the front ring part of the cowling you get to a point where its a good fit. Apologies for the naff photo but you get the idea.
  7. The Sea Fury rumour thread 2

    Both of mine have the short shot on the tail. Easy to fix i suppose but irritating.
  8. Zoukei Mura..............I dont get it....

    Whats with Zoukei Mura kits. I dont get it. Why are they held in such high regard. This is not a dig , moan , complaint , or anything like that , i just genuinely want to know other peoples impressions. I have had the Skyraiders. Now they were great and im sure they are very accurate , but build wise i preferred the Trumpeter kit. Some aspects of the ZM kits just seem to be gimmicky. I recently bought their 1/48 F-4S after hearing it was such a fantastic kit. It looked good but there was nothing that blew me away. I received the Academy 1/48 F-4b this morning it it looks equally as good if not better. Maybe i am missing something? Just wondering.
  9. What have you purchased / been gifted

    After years of building 1/32 kits , then realising i had nowhere to put them , i switched down to 1/48. I have my Tamiya Tomcat nearing completion and i have just added the ZM 1/48 F-4S to be its partner!
  10. AC-47 "SPOOKY"

    Very very nice. I still love the Italeri kit. Its a great kit. The AC-119 is beautiful too
  11. A Trip To Hannant’s: A Modelling Tragedy

    The original Hannants next to the tube station was great. Floor to ceiling stock and a great secondhand section , then it moved up the road near the RAF museum and it got smaller. Gary who used to run it left a few years ago and it got even smaller. I havent been to the London one for a few years now , come to think of it I havent made the trip to the warehouse either. I have since found a shop in Kent that sells loads of great kits including HK and Wingnut wings and its only 30 miles from me.
