  1. Hi Timmas, Thank you so much for the decals you made for me, they are just what I needed. I haven't been model making for what seems like an age but, will hopefully be back to it soon. Thanks again. Kindest Regards, Richard.
  2. Hi, As far as detailing/photo etch there is the dedicated Paragrafix set( I have this, it's superb) but mostly concerns the cockpit. You would also want to get some flat panel LEDs to back the photo etch(get these from "Age of plastic", just google that with "Millennium Falcon" and it will take you to his site, loads of great info there too and links to his 3d printed parts.) Green Strawberry also do dedicated sets for this model, may be worth a look at. Many people use the Tamiya fine surface primer(grey) to prime the model and then lay a base coat down of Tamiya AS-20 insignia white (rattlecan) or you can use LP-35 insignia white(Lacquer paint range) or a mixture of Tamiya flatt white XF-2 and Deck tan XF-55. If you wanted to really push the boat out in terms of paint you could go the route of "screen accurate" paints by Archive X enamel based paints ( Pretty expensive, I have some and will be using these with Tamiya and Gunze Sangyo). There are dedicated groups on FB for the PG falcon and the Archive X paints, some helpful people and links there also. Hope this helps a little. Cheers, Richard
  3. Hi, I have bought some of Tamiya LP-23 flat clear lacquer paint and it looks quite opaque/yellow/brown compared to other clears that I have( including Dull cote, also lacquer based). Is this normal for this type of clear? Thanks, Richard.
  4. Hello Timmas, Is this offer still available? I would like some decals for a 1/350 CH-46 Sea Knight if possible (Naval version). Are you able to help? Thank you. Richard.
  5. Beautiful work Andy. I have an advanced Tie fighter to build and will use your superb rendition as an inspirational guide. Regards Richard
  6. Thanks gamblor916, just what I needed to know.
  7. Hi, I have been looking for good reference material for Bandai's 1/72 model and the above mentioned book has been suggested. My main concern is that it's in Japanese and that there does not seem to be an Enlish version available?. Is it still worth trying to get hold of and can anyone offer advice on other sources? Thank you. Richard.
  8. Hi Andy, That looks fantastic, looks much larger than it is in reality. Beautifully painted as usual. You mentioned using a glaze medium, is this Vallejo 70.596 and do you thin it further with water? Regards Richard
  9. Hi Seadog, A charming little boat, beautiful. I have only just found this build and thought I would comment. Great work. Regards Richard
  10. Looks great Danny, I particularly like the starfield diorama with the saturn like planet. Good job. Regards Richard
  11. Hi Andy, Hope that you enjoy your time at the forum, they are a good bunch here with much knowledge and kind advice on all sorts of subjects. Regards Richard
  12. That's a very nice collection of droids and the new addition looks superb even if not "accurate" as you say (few would know that). Really top class build and paintwork as usual Andy. Regards Richard
  13. It looks good already Andy. I am tempted to go the "no primer" route myself having had such poor results with Alclad recently. Do laquer paints adhere better than standard Tamiya or gunze?. I may give it a go but it seems strange not to primer, though I never used to back in the day. Wishing you all a Happy New Year. Cheers Richard
  14. It seems that it does in fact come with the P.E. and LEDs to answer my own question. I noticed on the last link that the pre-order is through Revell? The postage is not included and is listed as from £6
  15. Does anyone know if this version of the PG falcon will include the photo-etch and the LED lighting?
