  1. I'm really enjoying following along on this one, it looks a great kit and you are doing it justice! Nick
  2. Yep, i use mine for flight sim (DCS) and racing sims. 2 Transducers either side of my seat and it works surprisingly well, although i will add 2 more when i get chance. I also use VR, and those 2 combined makes it feel very immersive.
  3. I have made my own, using some transducers and a mini amp. Got the idea from this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K55VNaS5rZI It works very well!
  4. HI Stew, did you ever finish this? Looks a great build!
  5. I would love one, but there's no way i could justify spending that much. I would be too afraid to build it in case i cocked it up, so it would just sit in my stash (alongside my Wingnut kits ) and that would be a waste - After all, kits are made for being built aren't they? For anyone who does get one though, and builds it, you are my hero. What a kit!!
  6. I’ll follow along if you don’t mind, been eying this kit up for a while now. Gotta love the Tempest, a bruiser of an aircraft
  7. Just thought i would update this... Turns out my hand was forced in the end, long boring story but basically the dining room is being turned into a bedroom, perils of having kids moving back in! So i've converted my brick shed into a modelling den, and its very nice having a dedicated space. I don't need to pack up after a session, my tools are organised and i've even got a spray booth! Just wish i had more time (and energy...) for building now. Thanks again for all your advice!
  8. Ammo MIG is great, they do a flat aluminium which brushes on very easily. I pretty much only use these paints now, they are really good.
  9. I'm using the dining room at the moment, and while my wife is very understanding and doesnt really mind, i'm conscious that my ever growing stash of paint/tools/etc is slowly but surely taking over... Plus its a pain having it all in boxes. I have actually had a breakthrough though, i have a shed/workshop attached to the side of the house, which i was using for something but these days its just a place to store my tools. So i've decided to use that, and get rid of a lot of tools and equipment i wont use again. A change of career has put paid to that. Its brick built and has power (yay) but isnt insulated and gets cold in winter, which i can sort out. The only negative really is that there isnt any natural light unless i leave the door open, there is a small window but as it faces out on to the drive i have covered it up so people cant see in and decide they want all of my expensive tools! I'm hoping to get cracking on it soon, it will be a lot of work but not nearly as much as putting up a new shed. Thanks to everyone for their help and advice, its much appreciated. Nick
  10. Nice work, i'm tempted to have a go at one of these, it would look lovely next to my A6M2. As @jenkosays, the undercarriage is a bit tricky, you're supposed to be able to operate it, but mine is just down - If i tried to move it now it would just break.
  11. You will enjoy this build, i did the A6M2 a few years back and it was ace. As for Aotake, i did a lot of research when building mine and in the end was none the wiser!
