    Su-57 Paint Colours

    Hi Thanks for the info re AKAH paints but I'm looking for Tamiya or Vallejo colours. I dont believe you can buy AKAH paints in the UK ? Cheers, Simon
  2. Hi All, I'm currently building the Su-57 in the splinter? camo scheme but I'm having trouble matching the colours. I prefer to spray with Tamiya or Vallejo acrylics. Could anybody assist please ? Regards, Simon
  3. Thanks for all the help guys. Figures ordered Simon
  4. Thanks , they look very nice Any other recomendations anybody ?
  5. I have a couple of 1/350 kits in my stash to build (King George V & the USS Hornet carrier) and was wondering which are the best figure sets to get. Eduard PE sets or Tamiya Navy Crew set ? Are there any other alternatives ? Also, are there any 1/450 crew sets available ? Any help would be much appreciated Thanks, Simon
  6. Thanks Michael. Thats the one I was looking for. Shame its gone
  7. Seasonal greetings A few years ago I used to use a website/tool to help me identify which colour paint to use when building my models. You would start my importing an image of your subject into the tool and then select any colour from the image. The tool would then suggest a number of paints, from different manufacturers, which closely match the one you selected. Unfortuntely I lost all my bookmarks, including the link to this website when my PC broke last year Does anybody know of this website or use anything similar ? Cheers, Simon
  8. Hi, I'm currently building a 1/32 Mig-3 (the white one with blue underneath) but I'm not sure which blue to use from the Vallejo range. Could somebody please advise ? Thanks, Simon
  9. Hi, Thanks for responding. I think I'll be going for a Trumpeter kit Many thanks, Simon
  10. Hi, Could anybody recommend a modern US aircraft carrier in 1/700 or 1/720 please ? I've never built a ship/carrier before so I haven't got a clue which kit to go for. The ones I've seen so far don't seem to have much detail. Any recomendations would be much appreciated Thanks, Simon
  11. Thanks Paul for all the info, that's really helpful. Here's the model which comes with a water base..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8u1sq2bAu4 Skip to 1 minute Cheers, Simon
  12. Hi, I recently watched a review of the Trumpeter 1:700 USS Lexington CV-2 (1942) and noticed the model came with a water base. I've never built a ship or carrier before so I wasn't aware that some came with a base. Is this common or just a Trumpeter thing ? The reason I'm asking is that I'm looking to build an aircraft carrier (US/UK) but I feel I would really struggle to build a water base for it. So if a model came with one included, that would be a bonus. Could somebody recommend one with a water base ? Thanks, Simon
  13. Thanks. That's what I thought when I saw the price Cheers, Simon
  14. Hi, I was surprised to see the Tamiya 1/48 Sea Harrier in a local shop the other day priced at £12. Is this a good deal or am I missing something here ? For a Tamiya 1/48 kit I would expect to pay twice that. Cheers, Simon
  15. Thanks for the replies. Does anybody know of any similar models such as the Ariel Atom, Nomad or BAC Mono ?
