Hello everyone ... Figured id go with another Bump for this. I also thought id pop a few photo’s of model kits available. Heres a couple of kits from Tamiya the older. And the newer. Heres an 1/76th scale from Airfix. A newer one from Dragon. And one from Meng. Here are a couple of non tank variants. The older Italeri Bergepanther. And the Newer Takom version. Then there's something like this FlakPanzer from Hobbyboss. I do hope this gives you a small sampling as to different sub-types and models available to be built. Dennis
i built this kit a long time ago and don't remember having any issues with it. keep going, because it is a nice kit. i remember when i built mine that i couldn't be bothered sanding the roof to remove the mold line for the targa top, so i just painted that section black and used the TS badge instead of the TB badge.
Thanks Hans. It did take a while. I've got 4 coats of matt white on now. I had to fill the underside seam and sand down a few time so it probably needs another coat on the belly but the wings and tail are fine. I can't find any Gloss White anywhere in my stash despite knowing I have a pot of both Revell and Xtracrylix. Maybe I'll just layer on a coupl eof coats of Kleer. Thanks. I might not be the best modeller, but I am determined and hopefully resourceful. I'm not going to let a bad coat of paint beat me. Thanks Col i haven't any photos from today but it looks a lot better. I'll post some tomorrow.

Thanks also for the editing tips, the dark look to the photos is not helped by the blue tint of the self cleaning glass on the conservatory roof and the time of day that I took the photos, you're right they do look wintry. Cheers John
As for colour, I'd suggest FS. 36375 Light Ghost Grey as a good match. Gloss coat the model, then once dry apply the Flory wash with a very fine brush as opposed to an all over everything type of wash, then remove any excess with a fine brush dampened with water. Seal the wash in with semi-gloss varnish. Richard.
Graham Boak replied to dnl42's topic in Pacific at War GBOh dear, checking on the credibility of decal sources - always the chance of an unwanted answer! I'm not familiar with the original, but I think it very likely that it was a C-47B, as it's a pretty safe bet that most of them were.
No Michael, T does not have the port wing elevated most, it is above the aircraft taking the photo. Z is below the aircraft taking the picture yet has the wing elevated more than the more adjacent E. The radiator on Z does not appear completely light but has the visible shadow line from the wing at an angle. Given your comments on the rear fairing behind the tailwheel (very interesting, I hadn't noticed that before on any Hurricane) then why is the radiator of Z light at all, for it also has the light appearance of this rear fairing? It is not 3 Hurricanes in this flight with this feature but all four. Why mention the early examples of the three-colour undersurfaces? It's irrelevant. No-one has seen a pink tiger with red spots, but absence of evidence there actually probably is evidence of absence. You are pressing the suggestion that a particular camouflage scheme has been retained on multiple aircraft for two months in the face of direct instructions otherwise, instructions made at the request of operational pilots in the interests of tactical advantage. Your argument is based on one highly debatable (as the above proves!) interpretation of a fairly poor quality photograph. Remember that every flight at that time would have been observed. The Observer Corps would have reported examples of fighters in obsolete camouflage, word would have been passed around and some response would have been made. (I'm tempted to suggest that Bowyer would have reported it in Fighting Colours!) Two days possible, two weeks unlikely, but two months?
Check out the Aeroguide on the Harrier GR3 / T4. Good side-on shots of the LRMTS nose and it’s flared joint with the cockpit section. 1417 Flt decals in 1/24th scale...? It’s a case of make your own or paint them by hand. Hope that helps for now. Cheers Nick
