  1. Count me in!!!
  2. Hi Steve, WOW 83 pages!!! I see you have put a lot of work on these models. One question: is the 1/72 Hawk a downscale of Airfix's 1/48? I'm asking this because I have the later one and it seems that most panels/lines are wrong and I thought of using your build as a guide to correct them. Keep up the good work!
  3. Nice subject and I'm looking forward to see how you're going to make the "B" Skyhawk into an "F"!!!
  4. Hi Wez, It seems to be Silver. If you compare it with the undersides, which are Silver, the hue seems to be the same. Cheers Shalako
  5. Hi David, Sorry, to see the "cracking". Did you use Humbrol's 'Klear'?
  6. Hi Giorgio,


    How are you?


    My name is Bill (aka Shalako) and while looking for some info on the F-104G in 1/48, I saw one of your posts regarding the 1/72 Starfighters.


    The reason why I'm contacting you is because from what I've read, I realised that you have a thorough knowledge on the particular aircraft and the kits released by various companies over the years.


    This is why I would like to ask you, how accurate is the ESCI 1/48 F-104G when compared to other kits such as, the Hasegawa? Or, even the Monogram Starfighter in the same scale?


    You see, I was recently given a MisterKit conversion set (TF-104G) in 1/48, and I'm looking for a cheap kit to buy in order to convert it.


    Thank you for your time Giorgio, and I look forward to hearing from you.




  7. I like the weathering on the walkways. Very realistic!
  8. Just to keep you updated about this matter. I had send today a second email to Hannants and I got a reply. They informed me that they got my first email (so, writing Damaged Item and your order's number is not recognised as spam email. Good to know) late last night and that they will inform me on how we're going to proceed with this matter.
  9. Thanks lads, I'll do so.
  10. I don't have a Facebook Mike but, thanks for the tip.
  11. I have send them an email (sales@hannants.co.uk) with the photo attached but, still no reply.
  12. Hi All, I would like to report a complaint regarding my latest purchase from Hannants. The items I had ordered were decals' sheets and etched detail sets. All these items were crumpled but, most importantly, one etched detail set was damaged, as you can see in the photo. I don't know if anyone else has experienced something similar but, for me this is the first time. I would like someone from Hannants to give me a valid answer on this matter and how we can rectify it. Thank you for your time and attention.
  13. Wez and Jure, thanks for your replies lads. I was referring to the stand-alone sheets for generic subjects. I have seen quite a lot on Ebay, and was wondering if it's worth buying some (for example, this one; P-38 LIGHTNING & P-39 AIRCOBRA Nr.32). Cheers Shalako
  14. Beautiful work!!!
  15. Seventy five quid is also my limit. Looking forward to see your progress! Cheers Shalako
