  1. Two F-35's flying low around Bromfield Shropshire, really low but just too far away to make out if they were RAF or USA ones
  2. Brilliant painting skills, just one thing, the barrel looks a little bent on the rifle
  3. If you Google it there was a news item/video showing one
  4. I think the stuff might have changed a little in 11yrs
  5. Is that flat black or flat primer grey
  6. Is the slopping turret design under the main gun of the Panther, what they used to call a shot trap
  7. Never seem to understand the cut out as pulling the trigger all the way back will do the same thing surely
  8. How does the Tamiya one compare to the newer Italeri offering
  9. Meng Pre Coloured 1/9 BMW HP-4 Racer. Was going to get the uncoloured one but didn't fancy all that carbon fibre decaling but this came up on offer. Well I'm blown away by the quality of the carbon fibre on the kit, it looks like the complete sprues have been hydro dipped, no way could I get that effect with decals
  10. I think this may get closed down, far to political for BM
  11. Not sure what you mean by buggers up Acrylic non lacquer and even Alclad.I know if you put a lacquer clear over Alclad metallic it will dull them, that's why they do Alclad Klear coat. In what way is it spoiling the acrylic paints, as I haven't had problems spraying a lacquer clear over Acrylic so long as it's had enough time to dry
  12. Excellent Spit, nicely done weathering used but not abused
  13. They don't look to be very well moulded, wonder if their having problems with later production ones due to the moulds

    If it went nuclear there are no winners I'm afraid for any side, even those not in the conflict
  15. Is there a need for the top spec more expensive tank looking at what's happening in Ukraine
  16. I use automotive clear from car paint suppliers on ebay, use this with Mr Levelling thinner as its less aggressive to the decals when going over to seal them in. Also its not affected by decal softener like some of the hobby clears 1 LITRE 1K CLEAR COAT LACQUER / HIGH GLOSS / UV / READY FOR USE / TechniQ GLASS | eBay They also do semi gloss/matt It says ready to use, would be for a body shop paint guns but needs thinning more for model airbrushes

    Sanding Seams

    That's basically what Mr Dissolve putty is anyway

    Sanding Seams

    Mr DP is quite hard when it sets and if the surrounding plastic is softer you may be sanding that away before the Mr DP thus leaving a ridge. Try a car glazing putty or Tamiya basic putty
  19. Beautiful build and WIP Have one in the stash with the Tamiya detail sets, must pluck up the courage and get it built after seeing this
  20. Very nice indeed KP, nice to show a raced car
  21. You know some of my best models don't look as good as your awful one, considering what you had to start with I'd say you've turned out a winner
  22. For kit wheels they certainly do come out well Lovely roadster, must get one soon
  23. I've always loved the look of the Vokes filter Spit's and that description suits them to a tee Lovely builds by the way
