  1. As for adhesion - I don't know, I use both Bilmodel and Gunze C - they are comparable - and always used a surfacer prior. I use mr hobby grey 1200 or black. I know that folks use some silver ones as they work ten with colors what is important as you can use very low pressure and the paint layer is very thin. With such approach use of surfacer is necessary to make the surface of the model smooth. I don't know anything about melting plastic while airbrushing lacquers but I heard a rumor about one "wise guy" who was testing lacquers by soaking plastic parts in it Don't do that! Also despite this is not recommended when I have to make small corrections or apply small amount I use a brush ocassionally - but this is for sure just my laziness
  2. Oficial statement used to be that there is no acrylic medium used. But we both may be right...
  3. Nope. Those are cellulose paints - similar to Gunze cellulose paints, only for airbrushing and needs undercoat. You can use leveling thinner with it. I stopped using anything else as I started to use bilmodel paints. You can put masking tape or touch painted area few minutes after airbrushing., and they cover very well with a thin lalyer. But they stinks....
  4. And one element is missing in the kit. it's easy to scratch it but as I paid 30 pounds...
  5. And here we have something interesting... Considering the thickness of the PE, such a solution is quite bold, however they write thanks to technology used they achieved thickness of 0.04 mm. It would be good to see it on the model. https://arma-models.ru/catalog/fototravlenie/am4840f_fototravlenie_dlya_mi_24v_vp_vneshnie_paneli/
  6. Maybe this will satisfy your needs. Set 1 of 4, next on the way. source https://www.facebook.com/Arma.Models/ Some details - like bulb light protection - missing, but I like it. more stuff than in Eduard.
  7. You can also make Mi-24D from the Hasegawa kit. It has both 9M17 and 9K114 missiles with appropriate two versions of ATGM antenna. Or Airfix that made Mi-24 D. But it's always a question why if you have Eduard Mi-24D conversion to best available zvezda kit, both Airfix and Hasegawa were made over 30 years ago... As for DDR markings you can use HDL in 1/72.
  8. At least there is a chance that AMP can be seen at a local store before buying. I have never seen LF in any local store.
  9. Modelmaker... huh... I'd love to see his set of mi-24 in Polish service as he did for Mi-2.
  10. That is the question what will we have to upgrade (or just to make the model at the acceptable level). Most comprehensive PE set for Zveda 1/72 Hind was ACE #7257, 7258, 7260. Would be great if they do the same for 1/48.
  11. I was thinking to use Mi-24D PE from Part (S48-003) - but as you can see the cockpit is useless. I believe the same ma be for other resin sets. For conversion to D version some other items from this and 004 Part PE set can be used. I agree cockpit needs upgrade and I hope except Quinta we will have other companies making additional PE parts as Quinta makes only early variant and for example in later Czech or Polish Mi-24Vs there are some upgrades and they're painted in black.
