  1. Hi guys. Building the revell 1/48 tonka using xtradecal set for za470 circa 1984. I have a query on intake ramps before i fix their position. What position would they be in with the aircraft parked up? I know at some point they were fixed in position but not when. Also in 84 would the kruger flaps be in use and how would they be positioned when "parked". Cheers PS LRMTS should have been fitted by then too yes?
  2. I don't see why it shouldn't be possible. If the Raider boxing follows this format, each viper is on it's own sprue and the clear parts for each are on separate sprues.
  3. As promised. First impressions, very detailed albeit the plastic feels a little brittle. One will be done in BSG the other, like the unstarted big brother, will be be wiffied.
  4. I'll pop a pic up when they arrive. I have a fresh 1/32 in stash so can do a couple of comparison shots.
  5. Is there any inbox reviews of these knocking about? I have a set inbound just wondering how they are vs the 1/32 kit.
  6. Witness claims the bear was over land. http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/feb/19/russian-bomber-flew-inland-cornwall-uk-airspace-witness
  7. He's going to have a companion. I've been doing an old hasegawa f15 as Thundercracker! I've buggered the canopy. Was nice and clear then I scratched a bit, tried to fix it and all went terribly wrong. Then I just thought it'll be a bit more like the cartoon version
  8. This is my first attempt at a rescribe. Bit gutted as the resin fuel probe came off. I found it and put it somewhere safe. Unfortunately it's gone again :cry: Tried contacting Freightdog re the probe, no reply at all. Not even a "sorry we can't supply".
  9. Bah humbug. Scored a too old airfix GR1 that has no LRMTS in it. Now er indoors has gone and "disappeared" the Revell one I was working on. Good news is the TSCs are there for an 8*1000lb version of my other revell kit
  10. Rest of the clear parts are shoddy too. Loads of flash on all the parts, wing lights are a mess. Will have a look for an airfix kit. Might still end up building the airfix kit in an alternative scheme. I've another revell in the stash, will have to check the clear parts on that one.
  11. I've hit a snag with my Bucc, was masking up to spray the steel on wing leading edges and snapped the resin refuelling probe. I cannot find it anywhere and I don't know at what point it happened, I'll have to use the plastic part
  12. Building the Revell GR1 in Op Granby scheme, however hit a wee snag with the LRMTS pod. The clear plastic part appears to just a vague triangle shape and doesn't even conform to the fuselage, or the rest of the pod. Is there an AM replacement or another (cheap) kit that does this better? Tried googling but only thing showing is an ended ebay auction.
  13. Nice, I've had a few pints in Pelaw club
  14. Hmm think I might end up with another gr1. Then I'll have 8 thousand pounders for an alternate load out. Will need to make twin stores thingies.
  15. I have a Revell GR1, building both as Op Granby schemes. It was the quality of the GR1 set that made me look at the poor quality of the Airfix set!
  16. cheers, might as well give them a whirl. Plenty of spares for other aircraft featuring missiles with foot thick fins (scale).
  17. Hi guys are the weapon sets well molded etc? I'm building a couple 1/72 models including a Airfix Buccaneer and it especially needs a better ordnance load. Was thinking of some resin replacements, but there's quite a bit in those H boxes for not too dissimilar cost... cheers

    Hi guys, spotted this for £3 in Poundstretchers, can anyone confirm the accuracy of this kit?
  19. Good looking gr3! One of my future plans to go with my gr1 and gr9.
  20. Thanks for the info. While I am waiting on the new RA Hawks, are they new tool or just new decals? Also noticed at Hannants that the Revell F-15E is being reissued. Which is great as they've been like hens teeth on fleecebay! I gave in and got the Academy SJ with figures version.
  21. According to Hannants it's now December!
