    What a funny thing to say, Especially considering many of us have read the biographies on him ☺

    Aftermarket 1/72 GE F110 nozzle for Has F-16?

    Aires and Brassin, my preference is Brassin. Both make specific nozzles for Hasegawa. The difference lays in the donut piece, the rest of the aftermarket parts are usually the same.

    Japanes F2 Paint help please

    http://www.sealmodel.com/product_details.php?category_id=117&item_id=800 Mr Color J.A.S.D.F Oceanic Camouflage set CS665 C374 Shallow ocean blue is FS35109 C375 Deep ocean blue is FS35045 If you use the Google translate APP you read this sentence, . . .but in actual machines, it got an impression with slightly high saturation, and it is mattered aiming for low visibility. So maybe it behaves a little like the US Have glass paint and can look a little different based on lighting and viewing angle. If you use Sealmodel their surface freight takes a while but my packages arrive safe and sound every time. I spray Mr Color with their own surfacing thinner and find it constantly great.

    New from WNW - a Taube!

    The poll states we have 3 committed souls who have purchased the entire range. With 8 more boxings to be released before mid year, if your wives catch you at it, we will be committing your souls!

    The WNW Camel is coming!

    Right you are. I think production problems are less likely than IT though. 'If' the Camel were to be available from mid Feb, say. Seafreight to Europe is what? Six weeks including customs to the Netherlands warehouse? They would have had to be on the water before Christmas. Of course that is just my opinion, . . .

    The WNW Camel is coming!

    It is summer break here in NZ. Most people will be back at work from the 16th. So who knows but the IT contractors may still be holidaying with the kids at the beach. I would rather be.

    F-16A RNoAF Block 1, Tamiya C conversion.

    Great work thus far. I am liking it. Great subject. Looking forward to your treatment of the IP. Before today I have chopped an Eduard etch piece and mated it into the Tamiya dash. Happy to copy off you for my next build. Marcus

    Turkish Airforce F-4E Missiles

    Remember the ELTA-8222 jammer on the front right Sparrow well. If they are not going in loud with AIM-7 & -9 they are bound to be jamming

    Kittyhawk SH-2G Super Seasprite coming November

    Many a time I have fallen asleep in my pit, to the lilting song of the damn thing beating the air into submission as the deck repels the heathen contraption after the chains were released. It's one of those kits, I will get it and do whatever is required to make it like one we had on board. Maverick with the blue stripes and all. looking forward to it .

    Avro Lincoln, RF389 RAF 75 (NZ) Sq, code/serial colours?

    That sounds like pretty good reasoning, thanks for your help!
  14. Hi Guys, I have recently received the neat Blackbird models conversion for the Airfix Lancaster B.ll. I wish to model it as RF389 AA.A as flown for a few weeks by the Kiwis of 75 Sq during to work up in UK for Tiger Force. Based out of RAF Spisby. There are a few photos freely available on the web that show this aircraft resplendent in white with black undersides and attendant exhaust stains. What I would like to know is what was the colour of the aircraft codes and serials? As a point of discussion the photos B/W photos show the codes in a similar hue to the roundel centres but that could still make them red or grey. Thanks for any help you may be able to proffer. Marcus
