    Thinners ?

    Gentleman, thank you All very sound advice, and taken on board. I don't have too much of an issue using the branded stuff for thinning, but its hard to justify it for cleaning. Especially now the modelling budget is being stretched. The little man wants his own Maskol, masking tape, brushes!

    Thinners ?

    Outstanding support and advise gentleman, Thank you, I was once told car screen wash and water for acrylics ??? !!! Alex I was with you all the way, until a couple of weeks ago. I just threw a P51 together for my son ( he wanted a Jolly Wrenches/Dusty Crophopper thing ) I used some Tamiya acrylics thru the airbrush, and was staggered at not only how good it looked, but how much easier it was to spray and clean. Anyway cheers muchly all

    Thinners ?

    Hi Guys can anyone suggest a cheaper alternative to Humbrol Enamel thinners. Not long been back into modelling. I'm slowly going from moving from Humbrol enamels to Tamiya acrylics, so a alternative to X-20A thinners would be really helpful too. When you have two young kids that want new school shoes, new bikes, Lego and such like. The cost of branded thinners is hard to come by, plus its just a rip off ! Cheer for any advice
  4. I think he means this. I hope. http://z13.invisionfree.com/Tornado_SIG/index.php?showtopic=855
  5. Many thanks Andreas. I know that if it makes an appearance at Telford you will need to crowbar Andy off of it. I know I will sound like a broken record but hopefully the 1/48 will be successful enough to convince them to re-release the man-scale kit. Steve P.s. Is it just me or is this shaping up to be the most eagerly awaited kit for some time?
  6. Just found this. Woo hoo, check the bottom picture. http://www.hyperscale.com/2013/galleries/eftyphoontwoseater32dw_1.htm Storm Shadow, Taurus and a GAF recce pod. Yeeha, some goodies for my Tornado's.
  7. Anyone know what kind of load you get with the kit? Steve

  9. This is the fin from the IDS shown in the official photo's from the new kit.
  10. Mmmm. Decisions, decisions. One...or two....................dozen?
  11. As well as the HB kits. Especially considering the price shown at the moment is £22.99.
