  1. Thanks all for the responses @scotthldr those photos are really useful! - Might just go with your suggestion of Dark compass grey @Red Dot, thanks for the suggestion, will join that site. Cheers all James
  2. Hi All, Just about about to start the Italeri AS.532 Cougar in 1/72. Looking at doing the Singapore option, as something a bit different. The colour schemes in the instructions are not the clearest. Looking at images on the net, I believe I am sorted for the upper surfaces and sides. The confusion is the underside colour - Italeri appear to have this as a tan colour, but the only picture I can find that shows any of the underside colour, it appears to be a grey - green colour - https://www.airliners.net/photo/Singapore-Air-Force/Aerospatiale-AS-332M1-Super-Puma/1197162/L?qsp=eJxtjjEOwjAMRe/iuQNRCYhsdGGkAxewHAORQhs5Hqiq3p00RUxs3%2B/bT56BxkH5rbcpMTjIjEJPaCCh4CuDmwGDkOBdO8yBtrX9sW1%2B/MIDy98GnDF2m2MYVr3dWXsq9jyKdlMBHpXPRJyU/ZdfxbOsFWeqjzzKpSmBpa8Z2kPhPuQUsTpYMURYlg%2BR8ELa Anyone have an image of the underside of a Singaporean Cougar or know what the underside colour should be? Thanks James
  3. Can on the site to have a moan about a magazine subscription that only delivered 11 copies in a year instead of the expect 12. Humbled by all the people making donations and released my time (and money) would be better spent support Britmodeller, so I have set up a monthly donation instead of renewing my subscription. Really appreciate that amount of work and time Mike and the team put into running the site.
  4. Do we know what markings are going to be included yet? I am hoping for an 80 sqn F.3
  5. It would be good to see a Mosquito flying the UK again. I was fortunate enough to live not too far away from where RR299 was based, at BAe at Hawarden when I was at school. We often saw it fly back or even practising displays. James
  6. Hi. Steve, Yes Medway Model Club, do not worry, I am terrible at putting names to faces anyway. No meeting in April or May. Keep Safe, James
  7. Hi Steve, Welcome form the other side of Medway - I guess we are in the same club? James
  8. If Memory serves my right, the Merlins were ordered as replacements for the Sea Kings and Labradors. The airframes were to be built in AugustaWestland, but the avionics and role specific equipment (the profitable bit) was to come from Canadian companies and fitted in Canada. The was a bit of an out cry that that the helicopters had been purchased from Europe and not the USA ( Where is suspect that they would have been fitted with US equipment). With a change of government in Canada, the order was canceled, and a huge fee paid to AugustaWestland the cancelation. The Merlins were eventual purchased for the SAR role anyway. I understand the downside of the S-92 was that the transmission was the same as that in the S-70 and and in the large machine it is noisy and there are lots of vibrations?
  9. Was in Hamleys Regent Street yesterday and they 30 - 40 on the shelf at £28, so there is still plenty around.
  10. You make be on to something with the herc - possible in 2021? My source has stated that it is in the design stage. Now is the question is are we both getting the same information from the same person or different people?
  11. or a comment from someone who had been to Airfix and seen the list............
  12. So at a recent club meeting, the rumour from along the North Kent coast was that the 2020 release list is confirmed........ ....Advice to all assembled modellers was to off load your 1/72 Vulcans.... Personally, I would not expect a new 1/72 Vulcan until 2021/ 2022, with a tie in with the 40th anniversary of the Black Buck Raids... I am hopping for a 1/72 Wessex, and in view of some recent art work, prospects are looking positive
  13. should have painted them red and issued them to the Red Arrows to replace the Hawks.
  14. So cutting up the starboard fuselage and wing also started painting the cockpit.
  15. Welcome aboard all. Sorry for the delay in updates - very busy at work, plus had some issues with leaking pipes, involving a stay in a hotel. Finally given up on Flickr, I can no longer access my account on a mobile device. So now trying Village Photos. started marking out were to cut... Now to start the cutting... More later (hopefully)
