    Cold War US Navy/Marine Corps jets. What Am I missing?

    Just bagged a Revell A7 Corsair for £4.81 on eBay! I think that the kit dates back to the 60s, but for that price it is worth a punt.

    UK unveils new next generation fighter jet.

    And not your or my scale anyway
  4. I'm a recent convert to the inward exclamation Ced - it's kind of like mindfulness training in that you have to discipline yourself to prouduce the required Anglo-Saxon expletive on the in-drawn breath, the F not being silent. Marvelling at your patience with those straps!

    Nice lighting Chris!
  6. The array of loadout options give this every impression of a flying Swiss Army knife Giorgio! Stately progress as always.

    Back To The Hobby

    Quite a fan of that Hellcat! Lovely line up there.
  8. Welcome aboard bbudde. I hope to surprise you with what can be done with the Mach2 transparencies. This is my Mach2 Atlantic with the tranparencies from the kit. I will describe how to clean and polish them up. regards, adey

    Dornier Do17z

    Thank you, yes you are quite right both ailerons are down...... however I only realised this once the build was painted so I've opted to leave it and not damage the paint, not historically accurate but looking pretty (I will take more notice next time.). Thanks Michelle.

    1/72 Hobby Boss P-51C Mustang 617sqn

    Impressive work with that HB kit. It seems that HB had learned a lot after they made their rather skinny and strange P-51D... For sure a Good looking RAF Mustang! Sheers / André

    Splinter Camo Hawker Hunter

    Are the ones at the top cameras or some sort of sensor? They don't look like holes to me.
  12. Today
  13. Great to see your gesture was so well received. Your diorama is an excellent tribute and well deserves display in their new museum.
  14. Thanks Ian, even I managed to understand those guidelines and I shall store those details for future projects. Funds are the issue at the moment so I won't be able to get a Zvesda yet, however I can attempt your techniques on my Minicraft kit. Mike

    Need Mitsubishi Ki-15 “Babs” references

    Eagle Eye 1 is about Sonia and Ida, not Babs.

    First and last time y'all will see the IP, hopefully closing-up the fuselage halves tomorrow if I can squeeze some time in the Cave: Thanks for all the interest so far, really appreciate it as always. Ian.

  18. Hello Tony, I've just come across your update/correction note and was particularly interested in your comments about Beaufighter NV115/D `Pamelamay' from 16 Sqn SAAF. I am very interested in building the aircraft and wanted to locate any photographs in support of the Build - haven't been too successful on a web search (other than a small photo of the mission markings). i don't know whether you have ever subsequently published any of your research - so, I'm taking a chance that you might have photos of the aircraft that you might be prepared to share? Or perhaps point me in the direction of... Many thanks - Mark

    Mirage F.1CT Desert Camouflage Colors for Kitty Hawk kit

    I would go after a photo of the plane you want to do.. lots of sand brown camo planes are actually CRs so take care what you look at! There ate also quite some different sand brown shades on F1s out there.. do not nessecarily trust the KH insttuction with colors, less so with armament!!!! I am not using Gunze.. so no advice here...

    Thanks for this kind of words David. This kit is ambiguous, now everyone knows it

    1/35 Kolibiri

    Great looking model, like the figures, shows how small the kolibiri was.
  23. Hopefully the article i wrote for imodeler might be of some help.... http://imodeler.com/2017/06/a-corsair-for-bob/ There were some differences between the Carrier-Based -2s and the Marine -2s mainly in the paint scheme application. -d-

    Color help

    Hello friends havent posted in quite a while but need some advice. Now that Testors has for the most part eliminated their MM line of enamels I find myself in the land of acrylics, where my problem has been the fast drying time for an old man who paints slow and deliberate. Anyway, my question is what Tamiya color is closest to MM dark glossy blue, or 15042 if I remember the FS number correctly. I want to do a nice dark glossy sea blue on a circa 1945 Hellcat. If I have to start using acrylics then a basic spray job is in order. Are acrylics ever glossy, or is a gloss coat necessary? I know that the vast majority of you guys have been using acrylics for years but this old dog needs to learn a few new tricks out of pure necessity. Well, any help would be much appreciated. Cheers SA
