  1. tried sealing it with clear. left for 48 hours. masked to paint something else. took the masking tape off (was only on for an hour) and a lot of the metal colour peeled off with the tape.
  2. Have sealed with klear and it has solved the problem. Not lost much of the metallic finish
  3. Sprayed my phantom metal bits last night. Started to mask for darker metal spraying tonight and found paint coming off om my fingers. Anyone else experienced this?
  4. almost finished the latest Simon Scarrow 'Macro & Cato' roman soldiers novel. I do like them.
  5. Thanks Coolhand. The Meteor was mine. Didn't win anything. That class was won by one of the AMT Migs
  6. a year or two ago, I was using a tooth brush with Tamiya thinner to scrub paint of a bit of plastic. A drop of the thinner flew back into my eye. A fun evening at the hospital, luckily no damage down (wifey wasn't too happy as he was serving up dinner when I said, I'll be back in a minute, just want to finish this'[ a year later back to the same hospital with my son when he grabbed a bottle of mr color thinner of a shelf and managed to open it. Just caught him raising it to his lips when I grabbed it outta his hand. Some got spilled so off to hospital we went incase he had swallowed any (he hadn't, he had a great night playing with 2 student doctors - the wife was serving dinner at that time too - I spot a pattern, keep out of the man cave when dinner is being served). My lad sat is his seat on the way to hospital, we kept asking him is he was ok - he looked at me and said 'uh oh'!!
  7. lets hope that other manufacturers follow suit as I hate cutting resin bits off of large blocks.
  8. I like the way they have made it easier to cut fragile and small bits off the runners with the thinned attachment towers rather than having to carefully cut the whole part of the molding block .
  9. Absolutely cracking model. Well done!!!
  10. stunning. It looks like it would start up if you spun the propeller. Nice job
  11. Thanks Guys. Sorry to not aswer your question Mr Happy. The gray was home brew mix. I made up a mix for my Eduard Limited edition Lavochkin LA-5 building and just added a load of white to the left over paint to get the colour I wanted. Not sure of the exact ratio. Approx 50:50 of the Lavochkin grey to white
  12. Thanks for the lovely comments guys. Glynn - the decals are nice, they conform nicely to the curves with a bit of encouragement from Micro sol. The only thing to watch for is if you are going to try to bend the decals around the wing edge, the decals get rather brittle and I really struggled to make them do what I wanted (the only down side of the decals). The roundels are the kit one, however I had to nick a pair of roundels from another kit as there were only four of the smaller roundels on the kit decal sheet and I needed 6 Goggsy - the open panel below the cockpit is the gun bay. You can open both sides if you want. Don't know how I forgot to take a pic of the area. oh. Just got back from the Shuttleworth model show. This model won the 1/48 catagory in the competition. First time I have won a competition so am very pleased.
  13. Very nice kit to build. The only problem part of the build was the join between the fuselage and top wings. Unusually the join of the bottom wing was perfect to the fuselage. The decals for the coloured stripes (and codes) were xtradecals. The bang seat was also an resin after market one. This was the first time using mig ammo Panel line wash. I was very very impressed with it. really brought the model to life I scratch built the engine intake covers (the rear ones are which are eduar 1/48 spitfire wheel hubs) Fancied something other than the usual grey/green. 20170218_131518 by Richard Page, on Flickr 20170218_131529 (2) by Richard Page, on Flickr 20170218_131537 by Richard Page, on Flickr 20170218_131543 by Richard Page, on Flickr 20170218_131552 by Richard Page, on Flickr 20170218_131604 by Richard Page, on Flickr 20170218_131619 by Richard Page, on Flickr 20170218_131636 by Richard Page, on Flickr 20170218_131646 by Richard Page, on Flickr 20170218_131657 by Richard Page, on Flickr
