    SPITFIRE SERIAL CODE STENCILS BM597

    Has anyone got a good quality sample of the "Broken letters and numbers" used for spitfires. I am trying to do a mask in 1/24 of JH-C and need to make "BM597" Thanks
  2. It takes a lot to design accurate masks and costs a bunch to get artwork done. I know a bunch of people who get home cutters and I am happy to help. Please respect copyright. There is no such thing as for "home use"

      Tony, Apologies for a delay reply. A family emergency has come up and my wallet is £100 lighter so I will have to pass on the ordinance. I am sorry for any inconvenience

       

      Regards

    Greetings from Alberta, Canada, , Britmodeller!

    Starseeker I sent you a PM. As for help well if I learned on thing it is there as many different approaches as there are subjects seek out what works for you, My biggest mistake was not finishing a model. Something magically happens when you stand back from a complete model. Up to that point you have been focused on a particular stage or section. This is where we often get lost and start a new kit, never finishing anything because something doesn't look right. Take what you have learned and move to the next kit. One of the well known modellers and "Gurus" wrote this. I was only when I stepped back and looked at the model in it completed state that I appreciated that the fading or weathering or whatever that had not looked right at the time now blended in all perfectly and in fact so much so that the project turned out better than expected. That same model then took some praise later on at a model show. It was a project I almost put away for "another day"

    Thanks Troy. I am still trying to work out the reason for the huge variation. If you look at Techmods Decal paint scheme it is a nightmare. Surely these came off a production line like all other aircraft?

    I suspect that matts or templates ere not used. I can't see the pattern and I am only looking at the MKIII. Selfish ba***ds some of us are trying to make a living 80's later

    P-51B Mustang III

    I am trying to understand why there were so many variations in the camo patterns. Richard Franks at pg 68 and 69 of his book says there was a standard and late. Unfortunately the late picture is to fuzzzy to make any distinctions. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Tim I am glad that the masks came out so well. I worried that we were in the realms of "being too small for the cutter". So email me finished pics. Guys please join the Facebook Group. Their is always something happening. Sadly I don't get to Britmodeller as much as I would like. Regards Sean Topnotch Masks and Models

    I have only just found Tim’s build. Unfortunately a spell in bed and a week abroad led to an unusually long delay in getting the masks to him. I look forward to the end result

  15. I have set up a beta page and after advice on copyright I am satisfied that we can duplicate a part if its made from resin and cast from a Master mould and not injection moulded. I have set uo a form on the our Web site http://topnotchmasks.com. this is a request form and will also me to collate and deal with what you want, rather than trying to troll through FB posts. the philosophy is simple if I can help at a reasonable price then its a solution for all of us. We will cast in clear resin for canopies and replicate other parts in what ever colour resin my Chief bottle washer deems appropriate.
