  1. If you are thinking of 1/48 or 1/72 I think there are already decent kits available so no surgery necessary. Atb, Steve.
  2. I think you have done a good job Peter. She looks lovely in silver and, although there are inaccuracies, the completed model seems to have a 'presence'. Also it is still the only game in town in this scale. A tricky kit to build especially with those separate wing roots! I have done an OOB version in camo a few years ago, I had to do it as this kit was the only one to ever 'beat me' as a young modeller and I never did complete my first attempt. Glad to say I was the victor in the re-match Atb, Steve.
  3. I've built a few Airfix F.24's and always ignored that comment in the instructions. To be fair, my research wasn't extensive but I never found a pic showing the window on line or in the books I have. Seafire 47 does have the belly camera so it could be a genuine mistake by Auntie Airfix. The colour and decal illustrations never seem to show a camera window in the belly iirc? Atb, Steve.
  4. Careful use of a hair dryer can also help but you have to keep an eye on the direction of airflow otherwise the decal gets blown off. Not sure if this would work with Klear as it may dry it far too quickly. I have used a hair dryer with Sol/Set many times though. Atb, Steve.
  5. If the IPA you have got is India Pale Ale, you will be properly relaxed after approx 2-3 bottles. Just don't do any modelling until 24 hours after the last bottle Atb, Steve.
  6. Oberleutnant, try here. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/REVELL-British-Phantom-FGR-2-1-48-Aircraft-Model-Kit-04962/401748809870?epid=10031188594&hash=item5d8a18588e:g:fmkAAOSwCA5ccB4~ Blue special is one of the decal options I believe.
  7. My kit arrived today which is much appreciated. It seems that Scratchaeronautics are keeping their word, later is very much better than never. Also, must say, it is worth the wait. All the best to you, Steve.
  8. Sounds like the Customer Service Department have already given up and are just waiting for Airfix to call in the administrators .......
  9. You haven't mentioned the Academy kit. If you are going 1/48, definitely worth a look. Your best bet here is to google some online reviews. I've done Italeri, Hasegawa and Academy in 1/48. I would rate them in that order based on the Academy kit being the best. Atb, Steve.
  10. Well, the estimated delivery date has come and gone. No answer to emails and ebay contact seller requests. Lesson learned. Amazing that i have never been ripped off until now, it really is an awful feeling knowing some geezer miles away has got his hands on my hard earned cash for nowt !!
  11. Thanks for the update. Two unopened Airfix kits waiting on the shelf all ready to be hacked up! Atb, Steve.

    Phantom FG1

    Majority of the FG.1 parts are on sprue J of the Hasegawa kit which is not in any of the 5 Revell kits I purchased recently (all current reissue) When I say majority I mean the difficult to alter parts, tail plane and nose leg. Pretty sure the non RWR fin top is in the Revell boxing though. Atb, Steve.
  13. It's a good little kit, as a lot of the Airfix 1/32 series were. But, that is simply the best model I have ever seen from the TR4 kit, well done. Atb, Steve.
  14. That is looking very nice and quick work too. I think, once you have experienced a few CA kits, you know what to expect and work through it quicker. I got a NF.14 conversion set for the Airfix kit recently, looking to start on that pretty soon. Looking forward to seeing the paint stages on your model. Atb, Steve.
