    I just can't understand why they try make F1 cars in 1/24. But of course the big fault was made by Tamiya starting to produce them in 1/20... /André

    Wishing for New Too Airfix Spitfire Vb

    I got the AZ Spitfire Mk Va kit a while ago and would say it is rather more difficult to build than the Airfix Spifire. Albeith with nice panel lines it has a little rough structure and it need a lot more cleaning and dryfitting during build...

    Giller's last P-51D "The Millie G"...

    Hello! Just wonder if there is any pictures somewhere on the internet on Miller's last "The Millie G" the P-51D 44-72123 (the fourth aircraft and the third P-51D with the same same)? Cheers / Andre
  5. I got the reissued 1/72 decals today and quickly noticed that the reissue isn't the same as the first issue. With the first issue one could decal two aircrafts of the "The Millie G's". This is sadly no longer possible with the new decalsheet... I had to get another sheet of decals for the other "Millie G" I intended to build... Cheers / André Ps. The first issue... http://www.hyperscale.com/2011/reviews/decals/barracudacast48011previewbg_1.htm

    Airfix 1/144 Boeing 707-436

    My build att IPMS Stockholm with a few pictures so far. https://www.ipmsstockholm.se/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=10504 In fact, it doesn't need that much filler. But there are hours to do cencerning cleaning upp parts, cutting and dryfitting and lots of wetsanding. Most works are with the wings and engines. There are also problems with the decals as they don't fit rather well. For example those BOAC decals for the enginepylons has to be trimmed on place. Be prepared to use a lot of Micro Sol...

    Airfix BOAC Boeing 707-436 Decals

    Hello, Building my BOAC 707 I noticed that the BOAC decals for the engine pylons didn't fit wery well. I had to cut the white away from the Engines and use the supplied trimfilm on the decal sheet to fix the gaps on top of the pylons. Now I wonder if I have to expect the same thing with the long four-parts BOAC dark blue fuselage decals as well? What can be done to avoid any problems during decalling?

  9. Yes, the 1958 Airfix kit... I built the latest Airfix kit a while ago with the decals from the old Revell kit (Cockie) and it was then I've found out about the decals from Xtradecals. It's sad that the last Airfix kit doesn't have the filletles P-51D as choise (as the Heller has). But this give eduard possibillities when/if they comes up with an 1/72 P-51D. Cheers / André
  10. Wasn't there an old movie about an ex pilot coming home till USA after the war and starting building up his life again with cutting down the B-17's he flew in the end of the movie? Cheers / André
  11. When will Airfix make an Dooleybird in 1/72? Or a kit with the markings of the first P-51D kit from Airfix? Cheers / André

    IAF colours

    I made an try with Revell SM 381 (RAL 8025). It has that shade of reddish Brown that RAF Dark Earth doesn't have. I think I am close to the "AIF Camouflage" formula... Cheers / André
