  1. Hi Nils, I would be interested in this information as well. But the main information that I'm looking for is taking place on the Interwar years forum. So Nils if you would like to reply here I will look out for it, but otherwise guys thanks for looking at this post but otherwise consider this post closed. Cheers Joe M
  2. Hi Guys, Need a little help please. I'm trying to match up the Blue and Yellow colours that were used on American training aircraft of the 1930's. I know that there was a light blue and a slightly darker blue. The yellow has been described as an Orange Yellow. I know that Tamiya do a rattle can no 23 that's supposed to match the lighter blue but any help would be appreciated. Stay safe out there. Cheers Joe M
  3. Hi ian, Its a real pleasure following this build. I'm learning a lot from your methods. So far I've gone through 2 Pack of popcorn, 4 packs of cheese and onion crisp's and two cream eggs. I wont mention the booze. Keep up the good work as I'm well stocked up for the rest. Cheers Joe M Stick & String Rule O.K.
  4. Hi Segan, I concur with what everyone else is saying. Its a lovely build and a great finish. Cheers Joe M Stick & String Rule O.K.

  6. Thanks Ian, Appreciate that. Cheers Joe M Stick & String Rule O.K.
  7. Hi Todders, The kit isn't bad the cockpit is OK as I was building it OOB. All the parts cleaned up OK. Overall it went together very well except for one part, see below. I did have three serious problems; 1. The decals were inclined to stick and were difficult to move no mater what solutions I used. Luckily I had a second kit in the attic insulation and was able to 'borrow' some. 2. The red decals supplied foe the wings were not wide enough in chord to cover the wings. So I checked out all the red colours that I had and found one that was a PERFECT match! Well as far as I was concerned it was. And painted the red on having previously laid down the white. 3. No mater what way I tried I could not get the fuselage to upper wing struts to fit. I ended up cutting the struts and removing small bit from these ones until I was happy. Overall I was very happy with the outcome. It makes up into a rather attractive model.

  8. Hi Adey, Beautifully done. I have one in the attic insulation will have to did it out now. A question, how did you manage to get such fine lines around the nose of the bombs? Cheers Joe M Stick & String Rule O.K.
  9. I finished this for 'In The Navy GB' so all the build details are there, so just some finished photo's. Its rigged with 0.122mm wire.

  10. Hi Segan, have to agree with Ted. Its really looking good. Cheers Joe M Stick & String Rule O.K.
  11. Hi All, I hope that where ever you are you are keeping safe and well. I have finished this this Phonix D.IIa . I really enjoyed it even with the one or two spots of trouble that I ran into. IMG_20200421_221430 by Joseph Moran, on Flickr IMG_20200421_221339 by Joseph Moran, on Flickr IMG_20200421_221323 by Joseph Moran, on Flickr IMG_20200421_221315 by Joseph Moran, on Flickr IMG_20200421_221302 by Joseph Moran, on Flickr IMG_20200421_221249 by Joseph Moran, on Flickr I really enjoyed this GB. My first on this modelling forum. Cheers Joe M Stick & String Rule O.K,.
  12. Got a nice bit done today in between going for a 3.5 mile walk in the fields around us and managing to almost fall over my self when shifting a heavy flower pot. I came out of it O.K. but unfortunately the flower pot did not survive! Any way on to the model. I got all the main rigging done. It all went on very easily which surprised be as there were some odd pieces. Tomorrow its the turn of fitting the ailerons activators and the wire for those. As there are only four on the upper wing and two on the tail I'm hoping that this will go as smooth as todays work.
