  1. I've got the Revell Boeing X-32A losing JSF contender in the stash. Count me in.
  2. I built an Academy F-15 Eagle in 2017, admittedly not using many of the kit's decals. My memory of decals from that kit - pick up replacements. Usually no problem with Academy decals - those were unusable. I was glad not to be committed to them. And I've got another Academy Eagle in the stash.
  3. I stumbled into their closing down sale, week before last. 50% off, but not much that really interested me.
  4. I mixed my own colour, until it looked right. Some blue into a tin of Humbrol 127.
  5. It's all mentioned on my Triple Nickle build thread, just the first few Eagles that colour with white codes. Then realised that this enhances visibility, rather than obscuring - hence changed to grey.
  6. There was an F-15 Eagle STGB in 2013, so have a peruse of the 1/72 builds - see what you like about each. Here's my Hasegawa F-15A from that build. And a previous Airfix F-15A
  7. Here we are with my other Airfix P-40B and the Academy B. Finally, my entire P-40 fleet. This is Tim signing-off.
  8. Two kits for consideration. Revell Breguet Br. 1150 Atlantic 1 (MPA) and Italeri Super Etendard.
  9. I've only got one Classic kit from pre-1986, the Focke Wulf Ta 152 H, which originated as a 1968 Frog kit - I'm in. My next oldest is the 1989 Tornado F3 - hardly in the spirit of Classic. Rest of Revells in my stash are newer than that
  10. I've just realised that the FAA Wildcat is Operation Torch. Is that eligable?
  11. The cheapest cappucino strirrer you can find. This one cost me a whole pound. Some small jars for thinning paints in. I pinched these from hotels when I'm sent away on courses. I use enamel paints, thinned with lighter-fluid, I've not tried it with Acrylics, and hear they're quite fussy about thinner. I've always used car screenwash when using Acrylic, and would use that for cleaning up after a spray session.
