    B29 question

    Just a further question. With regards to the propellers used on the atomic bombers. Were these off other aircraft from the time? Are they available in 1/72 as parts? Thanks

    B29 question

    Thanks for the replies. I would probably be doing the bomb bay doors closed. So it would just be the propellers that are different then? What exactly are the differences in the props from a normal b29. Thanks

    B29 question

    Hi am looking at buying the academy B29 in Old battler markings however I wondered what the difference between this kit and the Enola Gay kit they do as I was hoping to do one of the silverplate B29s. Thanks

    Niihau zero

    Hi I am wanting to complete my airfix zero in the markings of the famous niihau zero. I was wondering if anyone know if any decals for this aircraft have ever been made as I cannot find any. Thanks
  7. Hi. Think the revell one is the only mass produced option. It was re released the other year in a Thai livery so it does come and go. You may find one on eBay however they seem to go for stupid money. Far more then there worth. Other options are kingkit or someone one here may have one. Edit: just looked and there is currently one on kingkit. However it's £59.99 which for me would be far to much to pay for this kit. Cheers
  8. I have recently bought them. The first ones were ordered accidentally as from the revell advert I thought it was revell aqua. My fault I should of read the description. However when they arrived I was very impressed. The colours seem very close and the paint is much thicker then other paints I have used and covers well. I have since bought some more of the humbrol ones this time.

    Roots paint

    Hi I have ordered some roots acyrlic paint on eBay and they are supposed to be matched to revell. I just wondered if anyone had tried them and if they are any good. Thanks Luke

    Hi I have just found an old bottle of clearfix in a drawer. Probably around 3 years old. On opening it seems very thick. Is this normal or should I get a new bottle. Cheers
  11. Hi I am looking for a multi angle cutter for styrene and small amounts of wood. I have found a few online but wondered what peoples opinions are. My feeling is the Chopper by Northwest short line is the best option however I have seen alternatives and wondered if people rated these such as the one by expo tools. Thanks
  12. In general airliners. But the model I am building is an embraer 190. Cheers
  13. Hi I am just wondering what sort of colours people use for there wheel bays?A set of instructions I have says to use a sand Matt colour but when I look online it appears to be more of a green colour. Thanks
  14. 114026453298 Do you mean this item? The seller has 100% feedback. However not personally bought from him. There is a seller on there who sells lots of Brasil decals and he is completely trustworthy. Ordered from him many times. Think he is called koscuiv. What paints are you planning on using?
  15. Hi I have ordered in the past from them but only through eBay. That seem to be fairly reliable, however there have been issues with them ripping off other suppliers I believe. Cheers
  16. I don't know of you found any decals but bsmodelle make them I think. If you have a look on there website. Cheers
  17. Thanks for the replies. I'm planning on using Tamiya spray for the other colours so as long as I leave it long enough to cure I should be fine. Cheers
  18. Hi I am planning on switching to using Halfords appliance white as many of you do to paint my airliners. However I wondered if anyone knows if it reacts with any other brands of paint or if there is any varnishes it doesn't like. Thanks
  19. Hi I am wanting to make a Delta MD 88 in the current livery. Does anyone have any ideas on what paint would be suitable for the blue in either Humbrol, Revell, Halford or Tamiya. Thanks
  20. I have to agree. I think that some of the prices are very expensive for what they are. Cheers
  21. Hi I am just wondering if the newer eastern express kits such as the q400,md90,717, dc10 are any good. Do they go together well? And are they worth the price? Thanks
  22. Hi There is quite a bit of difference between the earlier 747s and the 800. Mainly the hump length and engines. Aswell as the wings. It all depends in if you want it to be accurate or not. Airifx and revell did make 747- 200 kits. It may be better to source one of them. Cheers
