  1. As stated by a David Wombley I would try and get a Belcher Bits set. http://www.belcherbits.com/images/172conv/bl3inst.pdf This is the Pdf that shows the weapons in the conversion. http://www.belcherbits.com/lines/172conv/bl3.htm# this is their website.
  2. The Flightpath conversion is just about complete and I would recommend using this as they have done all the hard work. I have this on my list of conversions to do but haven't started it, hopefully soon. I look forward to seeing your Vulcan conversion.
  3. Great looking kit, it is on my list of Phantoms to build. Did you modify the nose? Freightdog have a resin replacement. What paints did you use for the Red & Blue?

I live in Canada and Xtracolour is not available and neither at the moment is Humbrol metalcote. ( I was going to use Humbrol Aluminium metalcote) I do have access to Humbrol, (Full range except metalcote) Vallejo, (Full range including the metal range.) AK, (Full range including the metal range.) Tamiya, (Full range.) Mr hobby. (Full range including the metal range.) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

(Later this year) https://starling-models.co.uk/index.php 1/700 Fujimi (Ro9) as she appeared in the 50's 1/700 Aoshima (91) does it in two versions 1/700 Trumpeter (91) not yet released. 1/350 merit (91) big kit with lots of detail and lots of after market additions available. I didn't include Revell 1/720 or Airfix 1/600 Some are easy to find others are harder, hope this helps.
  7. I just read in Airfix Model World (page 10, Sep issue) about a 1/700 Ark Royal R09 circa 1978 is being produced by Atlantic Models and Starling Models. Does anyone know anymore about this and is it on any of the companies website?
  8. I just ordered a set, since I live in Canada the price is in US dollars it is around 28 US dollars or 22 GBP I got 10% off because it was my first order.
  9. I was looking on line to see what was available to convert a RN Merlin to have folded rotors and came upon this. https://www.shapeways.com/product/HJJFXLSBZ/folding-rotors-for-revell-italeri-1-72-merlin Has anyone tried these?
  10. Thanks Bootneck this is brilliant, just the info I was looking for. It will come in handy.
  11. I am trying to build the Airfix kit and would like to know. I wish to build it as she was on her last deployment. What colour is the flight deck? Green as in the instructions? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
