  1. P. & P. make purchasing one-off orders prohibitivly expensive, regardless of how much one spends. Thank you for reading this.
  2. 617 tornado

    Does anyone know if the 617Sqn 70th anniversary decals are available in 1/48th scale?
  3. DH Devon 1/72 decals

    Does anybody know if there are any 1/72 decals out there for an RAF 207 sqn DH Devon, circa 1980ish? Preferably one of the VP9.. serial ones? Ideally that Transport Command blue cheatline and the serial numbers.
  4. I came across a Kits World decal sheet for 1/72 Hurricanes. It has a couple of schemes that have peaked my interest. In particular, the Romanian Air Force one stands out in my eyes: Can anyone comment on the accuracy of these decals and the schemes illustrated?
  5. Just trying to plumb the experience of some more experienced modellers here: I'm currently approaching the decaling stage of a WNW Pfalz DIIIa, my first. I figured this one would be a gentle start rather than attempt the other dozen WNW kits which I have gathering dust in my ever expanding stash, and I was correct - it's gone together very nicely (and any and all mistakes are solely my own!). My question is this: I realise that WNW themselves advise against using any setting solutions in favour of using a hair-dryer, but is that entirely necessary? I used Micro- family solutions for the smaller decals - cockpit etc. - without any adverse effects (so as a very limited test there seems to be no issue), and I have never found Cartograf decals to be anything but tolerant of these solutions (with aircraft of other eras). Frankly I'd feel more comfortable using these solutions instead of risking using a hair-dryer (risk being relative, but I've never used the WNW recommended method before). Has anyone else gone rogue and used my proposed technique, or will it all end in tears if I push on? Any suggestions or cautionary tales are eagerly sought. SAS
  6. I'm looking to find a set of decals to the size and design of the one on this Hawk below. Does anyone here know of an existing 1:144 scale kit that has these decals, with the white outer band, or a decal producer that has them to this size? I'm not sure if the wing roundels are the same size and would be grateful for confirmation of that as well please. cheers Mike
  7. The title says it all. Linden Hill Decals has released again its beatiful 1:48 Arctic Flanker sheet, this time sized for the new Hobby Boss kit. Hobby Boss has released two 1:48 Flankers, early and late. Which of these two I have to pick for an accurate "Arctic" Flanker ? Best,
  8. Airfix 1/48 Junkers Ju87B-1 Stuka

    Hi Everyone, I am after a really big favour from someone. I have started decaling this kit with the decals supplied in the kit. Having placed the majority of the decals I have ruined the rest of the sheet. I am aware that I can purchase after market sets but want to complete it with the markings I have. I am not usually an aircraft modeller so don't have loads of spare decals that I can scrounge from. I have contacted Airfix but they cannot help me. If anyone has a set that they don't need I would be most grateful if we could do some sort of deal. Phill
  9. Paint problems

    Hello, I am new here. So I was assembling the revell 777-300er(zvezda repackaging), and I got the KLM decals from draw decals. My problem is, how do I paint the blue top of the plane, when I don't have spray paint, only paint brush, and I'd love if you guys helped me out. Thanks in adance!
  10. Our friends at Begemot have a new decal sheet that's being released, in the shape of the Tupolev SB in 1:72 - a quirky looking medium bomber , which despite its roots in the 1930s, saw service through until the end of WWII, despite any short-comings. The sheet contains 40 schemes from VVS, RKKA, Republic of Spain (Spanish Civil War), and even the Chinese Air Force for a bit of a change! Here's a sneak preview of what's included: It's available from their shop directly now here, and will doubtless filter through to the usual outlets in due course. As an aside (and quite an important one at that), there's going to be a new Su-33 in Syria sheet released in a few days in 1:48 initially, with 1:72 to follow a little later. If you're a fan of Soviet/Russia fast jets in foreign service, you'll want to watch out for it
  11. Decal Mould

    Hi all. Given how I now have an airbrush, and have boosted my techniques, I thought to myself today "Maybe I'll revisit my old 1/48 F/A-18F that I have in a box in the garage and complete it". I recalled I had the box in a cupboard in the house and went to check I had still had the instructions, parts and decals. So far so good. And then... Upon opening the instructions, i found they had stuck to the decals a bit. I thought it was maybe just the ink, but as it turns out, the decal sheet has a sizable amount of what looks like mould on it (brown dusty stuff). Aside from my instant annoyance at this, what has me equally dumbfounded, and kinda makes it worse, is that the decal sheet (which is a rather critical part) is literally the only thing in the entire box affected. The instructions are clean, the box is clean, the parts are clean. Has anyone else suffered from this before, or even know if there could be a way to clean them off? I have never ever seen this before. What's weirder is that the mould, for the most part, seems to have formed around the actual markings, so they could be salvageable (most at least) but still, I'm kinda at a loss as to how its just the decal sheet. Gaz
  12. Hello all I'm considering buying one of the Revell Tornado kits and I have a question about the available Luftwaffe edition kits for anyone who might know. Do the Luftwaffe kits have the data stencil decals printed separately from any decals associated with the special paint schemes they all have, or is there one of those kits that features a standard Luftwaffe "line bird" option on the decal sheet as well as the special scheme? I ask this as I'd like the kit for a "What if" project and I'll need German data stencils for it, but they will be useless to me if they are incorporated into a bigger decal or are not the fleet standard type. I know I could go the aftermarket route, but if one of those kits has a decal sheet that could save me the time it would be great. Thanks in advance
  13. Royal Navy Phantom Decals 1/48

    Hi Paul I'm after a set of four red 'omega' logos, the four white Royal Navy decals for the Hasegawa 1/48 Phantom FG.1, as well as two sets of nose banners, Four fin 'R's and those weird degree stencils by the rear stabilisers. I'm fine for numbers and roundels and stencils. Is this something you could do? Any help appreciated. Best Rgds Ben
  14. ESCI decals

    Specifically the aftermarket sheets ESCI used to produce in the 70s. 1/72 & 1/48 sheets for various aircraft. I've never been able to get these to work well...particularl. They REALLY seem to hate solvents or setting solutions if any kind. Which they really kind of need because they're so thick and inflexible. Has anyone ever found workable solutions for these decals? I'm wondering if heat is the only thing that would kind of make them conform...
  15. Spitfire Decals Needed 1/32 PCM Mk XIV

    About 18 months ago I built the 1/32 PCM Mk XIV Spitfire. I was fairly new to airbrushing and ended up painting a very rough surface using alcohol as a thinner (Tamiya Paints). I decaled the model and everything was fine up until the clear coat stage. You guessed it, about half of the decals silvered. My own stupid fault, but the Spitfire sits in hiding, ashamed to show the job I did on it. I have tried all sorts of things to fix it and nothing has worked. I intend to strip the paint and redo it properly, but now I can't find the decals for it. PCM has recently closed their doors, so I don't know how to get a replacement set. Zotz makes a nice set, sheet number 32-033, but I can't find anywhere online that has a set in stock. Does anyone know where I can get replacement decals? Either PCM or the Zotz set. Is there another set that is made for the Mk XIV? Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  16. Short Fuse Sallee in 1/72

    Can anyone tell me if there is a set of AM decals in 1/72 for Richard Turner's "Short Fuse Sallee", either cor his P-51B or P-51D, or both. Tried googleing for it yesterday but only came up with 1/48 which is not my scale. TIA DennisTheBear
  17. Ryanair Decals

    Wonder if anyone has any good knowledge of decals that can help.... I want to build a few Ryanair 737-800's and have the kits already - the catch is these are just plain kits with no livery included. Does anyone know of any sources that sell decals (with "choose your own registration") for up to 3 Ryanair Aircraft?
  18. Decals for Stinson Mod. A?

    A few years ago I could "catch" a 1/72nd scale vacuform kit of the Stinson A. http://www.airliners.net/photo/American-Airlines-Stinson-LLC/Stinson-A-Tri-Motor/1263327 I would like to build this ugly/beautiful model, but I think there are no decals available. (American Airlines prefered) Has somebody an idea how to get decals for this wonderful airplane?
  19. Airfix Jet Provost Mk3

    Hi All, Having built two Mk3's in the late 1960s I was really looking forward to the new version. The test shots and the marking looked really good.. I ordered 4 as soon as they were available and bought the xtradecal set as well. I am really pleased with the kit but the decals are another thing. Great schemes but mine do not adhere to any curved surfaces, it looks like cardboard stuck onto the model. I have used the Microscale system but that is struggling to cope. Is there anyone out there with some ideas that work? Kind regards
  20. Meng Decals and Solvaset?

    Hi all, im currently trying to put the number plate decals on my Meng Achzarit Early. Israeli number plates are 'embossed', so the number plates are provided as brass etch, with decals. The trouble is that I can't get the decals to settle down into the relief on the etch at all. I started with MicroSet and MicroSol, and that had no effect. So I reached for my bottle of Walthers' 'Solvaset' - which is a 'hotter' version of the same thing. Solvaset usually turns decals to 'jelly'. But it's had no effect at all. Has anyone else had this problem and what am I to do? Thanks, Phil
  21. Sice months I am looking for decals for the Douglas DC-3 "DST" (Douglas Sleeper Transport), in the colours of American Airlines or others. Do somebody know a maker of those decals? I Built a DC-3, a Lisunov Li-2, a DC-2 is WIP, and so only the DST, what easily can be converted from an italeri DC-3 is still missed in my Douglas "family".
  22. Hello, Wonder if these decals from Xtradecals also useful for wartime aircraft's or are they only for pre-war aircrafts? Or are there other decal's available concerning RAF black letters and numbers in 1/72 for WWII aircrafts? https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/X72157 / André
  23. P-47D stash botch. Ignore all sorted out

    Hi all I don't model with an overriding theme other than buying & making things I quite like the look of (with a strong bias toward good value) I was musing what to build next and was thinking of doing a pair of Thunderbolts and hauled out the two I have as part of bigger sets and Havibg done so I've now realised the box art in the Gabreski set is a nonsense (it should be green & grey with red nose/tail v.similar to the Revell boxing) and both planes only have one decal option Does anyone have a recommendation for a decent priced decal sheet (I only need/want to change one of them) or a partial sheet they'd be willing to sell/swap that'd do? I'm not wildly fussy but it seems a shame to make two nearly the same planes alongside each other (to me anyway - I've seen some amazing work on multiple variations on a theme but I don't think that's for me)
  24. Having spotted that Kits World had released a couple of sets of MSG squadron codes, one of which was 28", I became rather animated. Despite the official requirements for squadron code sizes, it's obvious from studying photographs that these were not always adhered to, and being something of a Battle Of Britain buff, there was a need for some 27"/28" codes (plus 32"/33", but that's another story). Imagine my confusion when confronted with this: That's not Medium Sea Grey! I was sure that squadron codes were Medium Sea Grey in this time frame? Certainly, that's what my references tell me. It has long been a bugbear of mine that many decal manufacturers get MSG so wrong, and and at first appearance, this seems to be yet another. However, I noticed that the decal title states that it's Stores Ref 33B/157 Grey and I have to confess, this is the first time I have encountered this term. Is it known what grey this is? Did it become Medium Sea Grey or was it another colour entirely? If so, which is the correct colour for 1939-40 squadron codes? So many questions! Cheers, a very confused Mark.
  25. Decals for 1/32 F-4F

    Does anyone know where I can find a set of decals for a standard modern German F-4F in 1/32 scale, such as the JG74 decals in Revell's '50th Anniversary' kit 04743? I've contacted Revell Germany but they no longer have any in stock. Thanks. FH67
