    Are all Airbrush needles the same?

    I can't speak for the H&S needles, but I did try out the needle of a cheap Chinese airbrush in my Badger 150 and the needle fitted well enough (though it was a bit longer, not enough to make a difference) but the taper on the needle was a different length so it produced a different (and unsatisfactory) spray pattern. Give it a try anyway, as long as the diameter is the same all you risk is disappointment... Cheers, Stew
  4. I'm in. I believe you will do a better job on this one than the last one Cheers, Stew
  5. Thanks Ced I fitted the exhaust blanks: ... and joined the fuselage halves: I managed to get a faint step on the fuselage underside which means I had done something wrong, given the precise fit of everything else. However it was sanded smooth without troubles. I painted the inside floor of the cockpit moulded on the lower wing: I did remember to drill the holes for the bomb-rack first I'm at a bit of a loss how to proceed now, the instructions - and logic - dictate the fitting of the lower wing, which I have now done and which is currently setting. I'd like to leave the upperwing off as long as possible, and the tail surfaces, for ease of painting and rigging but I imagine painting the fuselage and wings now before they are all joined might be more practical... anyway I believe the assembly of the engine is next, so that gives me a bit more time to decide how best to proceed... Cheers, Stew
  6. Gods, I can see why you might be undecided; is your stash actually Hannants warehouse? Cheers, Stew

  13. I'm sure I have a recollection of both Tamiya and Revell kits being issued in 'Light and Sound' sets? That said I'm not sure I would pay extra for those sort of features given that I would probably only do it once to see what it looked and sounded like. Would be an interesting project to see if you could do it yourself to a 'standard' kit... I fondly imagine that a spinning prop is less likely to sustain damage than a fixed one in that if you mishandle it, it moves rather than breaks. Since I tend not to handle my kits once they are finished this theory remains largely untested but I am a fan of any foolish notion that promises me less work later on Cheers, Stew

    1:32 Tamiya Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IXc

    Lovely job on the cockpit Bill, looks very convincing to me Strange Tamiya missed the headrest though, it is quite a prominent feature... Cheers, Stew

    What have you purchased / been given

    Was it a PBY-5 you were after, or did you not want a Catalina at all? Cheers, Stew
