    What's flying over your house? Thread #2

    Hi ,i live near Iron bridge in Shropshire ,Hawker Hurricane just made 3 passes over the village . Cosford Airshow is on tomorrow ,never been, but often see the aircraft flying the day before .
  2. Hi ,finishing up said model the one with the yellow and black checkerboard tail .Having a job getting said decals to stick to the tail . Using solvaset decal setting stuff ,the decals just shrug it off ,i can even move the decals that's how little effect it has . Earlier i used solvaset on a Airfix 1/73 BF 109 e and it worked ok . Anyone have any suggestions as to a different decal solution.
  3. Is it possible to move the decal when using KOE ?
  4. Hi ,this is the first time i have had any problems with decals ,haven't heard that KOE is god for sticking decals down ,i spray a coat of it before i start decaling !
  5. Hi ,thanks for the reply ,i found another thread about using Tamiya extra thin ,i tried it and it worked ,but i did loose some of the decal ,so i am reduced to yellow and black paint.
  6. Hi ,just found this thread ,i have posted a question about the decals in wip ,might try using super thin .

    Masking aircraft

    Hi ,i have mentioned before i am in the middle of finishing 19 1/72 aircraft ,having trouble masking on 6 of them Hurricane Hawker Typhoon Tomahawk and 3 French ww2 aircraft ,that i forgotten the names !. The RAF ones have the typical 2 colour upper camo schemes . Don't know what it is but the usual methods of masking is making my head spin ,paper masks ,Blue tack ,even tried using a pencil to lightly draw the shape of the camo . Found out that even if you spray over them you can still see the lines ,Doh . Don't know if it is a loss of mojo ,whatever that is .so i spent yesterday and today spraying the props and wheels ,even sprayed the road wheels on a 1/35 Panzer four . But every time i try to mask ,my poor old brain shuts down .It not as if i haven't managed it in the past. Don't know why i am posting this ,any help would be welcome ,as long as you don't tell me to pull myself together .

    Masking aircraft

    Hi ,thanks for the reply ,i was thinking about doing what you suggest .The Spitfire PR in Swedish markings just needs touching up the paint work and the prop spinner painting red . Same with a P51D Red tails and a NMF Super Sabre . Trouble is i like making kits don't like painting.
  11. Agree with the guy above ,the last shot looks like a real Aircraft . Seen this kit for sale in a few places ,thinking of adding one to the stash . (YOU SAID YOU WERE NOT GOING TO BUY ANG MORE KITS.) Who said that? No i did not say that ,that doesn't sound like anything i would say.

    Rubber Tank Tracks breaking in the cold .

    Hi ,i meant the tank it's self ,the instructions say Tamiya dark green ,s that correct?
  16. Hi ,has anyone had tracks breaking after they have been on the finished model for a while ? I store my built models in one of my sheds so it might be the cold doing it. Also didn't like the paint scheme after i had weathered it to death ,so i gave it the oven cleaner treatment . In the process of wiping the gunk off broke a lot of the breakages and lost one of the turret hatch covers ,i think it might be easy enough to scratch build another one .

    Rubber Tank Tracks breaking in the cold .

    Glad someone mentioned Tamiya's Chieftains ,in the instructions it gives dark green as the main colour ,is that correct?

    Rubber Tank Tracks breaking in the cold .

    Thanks for the replies ,the tracks in question are rubber band type from the Tamiya Churchill tank ,but in the past tracks have broken on a comet and a bren gun carrier . The track broke before i gave it the oven cleaner treatment . Any way all the broken bits are back on ,except a front headlight .Got round that by putting a German helmet where it should be ,same with the other headlight . A bit of Tommy humour to have German gear on their tank ,also scratch built a hatch cover . Want to add some storage on the rear ,not a lot of room on a Churchill ,would the crews have stored stuff over the exhaust pipes guard ? Talking of individual link tracks ,i am starting to get used to building them and i now prefer them to the rubber band type .

    Another Denial of Service Attack

    I posted this to show that there are aholes in all walks of life ,the first bit is true ,the second bit was just a bit of fun .Although i did once turn off the squesh ? button on my radio and i did hear some bods talking about building site things . Sad that some people have nothing better to do than try and stop other people trying to enjoy their hobby .

    Milton Keynes Show

    Hi ,Chris ,i might go along to the Gloucester show .I am a full time carer for my twin brother ,and he is a bit of a pain .We stopped in a hotel Saturday night near Milton Keynes . He dislikes walking ,so i dropped him off then i had to go park in the industrial estate . Is the Glos show the same size as today's show ? Shropshire council who look after us full time carers so well (where is the sarcasm button ) have given me 2 days respite in November ,so i will visit the Telford show for the first time . All in all i enjoyed the show ,talked to a few people and saw some great models .

    Another Denial of Service Attack

    I used to be a motorcycle courier in London ,late 80s to 1997 ,when i escaped back to Shropshire . One company i worked for shared a radio wavelength ! with a minicab company . One of their drivers used to drive one of our controller's potty by keying up when he was trying to talk to us . I was standing by in the west end playing around with my radio one day ,when i heard someone saying . "Lower , "Lower . "Stop " Then i joined in by saying "Lower " Then i heard the voice say "No ,stop". ME "Lower " Voice "No you berk stop " Me "Higher " Voice "YOU DOZY CRETIN ,I SAID STOP " Me "Lower " Voice "IF YOU DON'T STOP RIGHT AWAY I AM GOING TO $$%%%%%%&&&&&*** your head in ." By this time i was feeling very pleased with myself ,i turned around and there was this angry looking guy in yellow vest and hard hat walking towards me . In one hand he had a radio like mine ,in the other a pickaxe handle . Didn't stop around to see what he wanted Happy days .
