    Raspberry Ripple Phantom

    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?

    High Speed Siver

    Hi I am looking to build A Vampire, Meteor and Canberra all in High Speed Silver. My question is what paint is a good match for this colour. 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.

    Ark Royal R09 1/700 kit

    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?

    what was your very first Airfix kit.

    My first Airfix kit was actually 3 kits I received for my birthday. Golden Hind (The little one with the water base, if I remember correctly it had a couple of holes so you could hang it on the wall). HMS Ark Royal F4U Corsair. The only one I painted was The Golden Hind. The corsair went strait out the bedroom window crashing below. HMS Ark Royal went into the bath tub to be sunk by duckie.
