    Unfortunatley Covid19 doesn't seem to be settling down, and how has the death rate settled down. It has due to lock down but will more than likely spike again and another lockdown will follow. You only have to look at the pictures of people on the beaches, old habits die hard as you say

    The world is in the hands of the people trying to get a vaccine sorted, until then nothing I'm affraid will get back to normal anytime soon
  3. Brilliant build and finish, the rigging looks very impressive and in scale
  4. Don't think you'll get better than that for a pound
  5. I think he means purchasing the resin body bolts from sloucher
  6. So they went to the effort to produce the spues etc for a one off limited edition, yes pull the other one, there will be another H for sure but with different decals. Their taking a leaf out of Hasegawa's book here
  7. That's my trouble I'm computer illiterate.Don't fancy trying to scratch build so many of something that small
  8. Thanks Codger, do you know the correct term for the fixings

    I think you've just listed why SMW will not be going on in 2020.That is unless a very unlikely vaccine is suddenly available asap. Telford Uni probably doesn't want to take the risk of letting out their rooms in the current sitiuation also
  10. I'm not so sure, after checking out a number of builds, another on here, they seem to show them that way up ? But looking at the real thing they show them the other way up, perhaps Italeri have got the instructions wrong
  11. The only trouble I find with Stynylrez is it doesn't bite into the plastic, fine if you don't need to mask any part but a nightmare if you do Lacquers don't seem to bother it if you give it enough time to fully cure
  12. Renek If your thinking of producing these for sale I would definitely purchase a set off you Keep up the good work, mine arrives next week and I'm picking up a lot of good tips from your build
  13. The only airbrush I can use to get a decent gloss finish is my Iwata HP-TH. It's a .5 needle, this allows me to get wet coats on the model from further away thus avoiding flooding the area and runs. Even with a.35 needle I struggle to get a decent finish, too close and you flood the area, too far away and the overspray collects like your pictures and you get rough spots, especially with all those uneven edges. It's far easier to get a good finish on a flat surface, when you start having edges you get bounce back, the overspray which has bounced back off settles back down as dry paint. You don't say what you use to thin your paint, Mr Levelling thinner is by far the best as it's not as hot as the general High gloss/low bloom ones from the body shop suppliers, it still drys quick but allows the paint more time to level out.
