    Following this one with interest as its next out of my stash. Thinking about doing some of the smaller windows with Krystal Klear; what do you think?

    Varnish troubles [Help!]

    You might be able to fix things with a gentle rub with a cotton wool bud with a little Isopropyl Alcohol or thinner on it. You are of course removing the varnish but if you are gentle you are just moving it about. There is a danger that the bud will deposit fibres! I tend to search my model with a magnifier before I varnish (as well as do what the others suggest).

  5. That' lovely but it looks like the decals on the wings are torn?
  6. Giemme, Forgive me but I'm been looking though the build to pick up some advice on how you made the masks for the markings. Excuse me if I've missed it. Could you tell me how you did such a wonderful job? Matthew

    Always love to see a good Halifax model and one with a proper 'back story' will always be a bit special. Thank you for posting.

    1/72 Wellington codes needed.

    I need to do a bit more research but I am very grateful for all your advice. I'll see if I can identify a photo from the same period (mid/late 42) and then I'll have to plump for one or other.

    BK, You are a star! Can you use some 1:48 scale red codes? PM your address if you can.

    I should also point out that I bought 1/48 codes for a 1/72 scale model. My only excuse is that I normally work in 1/48 th - other than that I just wasn't thinking!

    1/72 Wellington codes needed.

    The aircraft was a Mk III of 75 Squadron. X3396 code AA-S. Lost in September 1942. http://www.adf-serials.com.au/nz-serials/nzwellington.htm This links to a photo of a 75 Sqdn aircraft AA-K. Interestingly the letters all look the same size yet Trumpeter would have the AA smaller than the K? Thanks for your advice chaps by the way. M
