  1. Excellent result. If you hadn't have said it was brush painted I would never have known, would have thought it was airbrushed. Very smooth finish.
  2. White Waltham airfield Photo used https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:White_Waltham_Airfield_(1).jpg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Waltham_Airfield Extract from the Wikipedia page:- "After the war, the airfield was also used by Fairey Aviation and later Westland Helicopters, which assembled and tested aircraft built at their Hayes factory. These included the Fairey FB-1 Gyrodyne (1947), Fairey Jet Gyrodyne (1954), Fairey Ultralight (1955), Fairey Rotodyne (1957) & Westland Scout (1960) & Westland Wasp (1962). The prototype Fairey Gannet was first flown from Aldermaston but production aircraft were completed and first flown at White Waltham too and an example is currently stored at the airfield."
  3. It seems to be the wing of PA28 Cherokee, Taper wing version!
  4. I have a Molotow masking pen, very convenient and easy to use https://www.scalemodelshop.co.uk/2mm-masking-liquid-pen-molotow-728001-p16465/
  5. Canopies are the best I've ever seen, Very nicely done RAF just called, they asked can you make one 72 times bigger? apparently they need one at Chester, oh and could you paint it red.
  6. Cos I'm cheapskate I have the 395nm one but seems to be only good for highlighting & retrieving parts stolen by the carpet moster but won't cure Elegoo std gray, never tried it with any other resin. The cheap LED from my UV glue pen works well though.
  7. My thoughts entirely, we are on a whole new level now
  8. This is the DH84 entries on Scalemates https://www.scalemates.com/topics/topic.php?id=15105 Rugrats resin kit in 1:72 seems to be only available kit. Oxford also do a dicast https://www.oxforddiecast.co.uk/collections/dehaviland/products/dehavilland-dh84-dragon-g-ecan-railway-air-services-72dg001
  9. Hot off the printer this afternoon for you Dennis, just need to let them dry, snip the supports off and then cure them. I'll PM you the relevant stuff in a day or so. Mark
  10. After a search through my own ref material I've come across some more stuff From the Warpaint Buccaneer book I've found this on the scale drawings, dragged the scale onto the drawing before uploading Click here for super high res 1200 dpi scan Also a couple more pictures from that photo sortie with XX191 from this extract publication from Air International. Hope these are of some use CT
  11. Ill get them printed probebly this week I think. Just to check, do I have the 1mm & 2mm ports the right way round?
  12. Dont worry about printing costs (unless of course youre building a fleet) Just postage costs, Think your in Illinois? everything sent together should fit in the "large letter" category and if I can keep it below 100g total weight then it would be just £4 or £5.85 upto to 250g 1:48 is just a simple enlargement of 1.5x
