A hinged Headrest/Storage Locker is provided above the Rear Seat. .....could'nt find the Mini Bar and Ashtrays........ Oh yes , the Dash is Black with a colour coded 6" strip runnin' around the lwr edge of the Dash ....... dunnoo where the Compass is . cheery "2019" mumbas ! Geoff F.T.G. 3156

    Airfix 1/48 Meteor short shot parts issues

    hi ALL , I recently built (2) ea of the PLATZ 1/144 F-106A Delta Dart and AV8A Harrier II Kits .......... absolutely perfect mouldin'. The Fin and Wing Tips on the Dart were so fine that they warped while handlin' hhhhhhhrrrrr ! and snapped one of the Outrigger Legs on the Harrier. One of the Engineerin' efforts I really liked on these Kits was that there are Tabs on the Canopies that hold the Part in place....no glooin',no mess, no cutting the part to display the Cockpit GO FIGURE Geoff F.T.G. 3156

    Hello all Steve here

    hi all , I have seen that Revell Paint Conversion Chart. The HUMBROL Chart I am referencin' has (10 ) Conversions , including Wargamers Paints ..........would be about (10) years old at least. Have you gone to the Svedish ipsmstockholm.org/colorcharts/stuff Site ? ......... It's all there but dated by now ( Sept 2006) Had success with the Halifax /Glasgow Apple Green by mixing a base colour of Humbrol Fluoro Green with EXTRCOLOR X-11 RAF Trainer Yellow...... BINGO ! cheery "Pre Christmas " mumbas ! Geoff F.T.G. 3156

    Hello all Steve here

    hi Steve, thanks for your Reply, yep Aussie's do have that REVELL Acrylic Paint down here I already have HUMBROL's FERRARI RED, but havin' seen the real thing when I visited the U.K.in 2014 I think the HUMBROL #60 Scarlet is pretty close a match . Any suggestions for the HALIFAX / GLASGOW of the 60's 70's Apple Green ? Are HUMBROL RAIL COLOURS still in exsistence ? .....have had a lot of trouble tryin' to git that Colour right hhhhhhrrrr ! However I bought a tinlet of HUMBROL #208 Fluorescent Green, and with a dab of Grey just might do it Will be beamin' Photo's of My EFE HEBDON BRIDGE D/Decker adorned with Local Ads sometime soon. Real Busineses but never happened as far as I know mumbatatshunzz ! Geoff F.T.G. 3156
