  1. Oooohh errr missus I just choked on my bacon sarnie lovely job- very well built and finished
  2. I could drive a bus through most comments in your post. Don't get me wrong, Enamels ARE wonderful- unless of course you don't know the tricks of the trade for using Xtracolur. Firstly acrylics come in many different formulas and makes- they are all sooooo different in the way they react as to make a sweeping statement about acrylics utterly pointless. I would agree abut the potential problem with the outer skin hardening on paint like Gunze and Tamiya, but in truth this is due to laying on too much paint in one go with insufficient curing time. Same for most paints whatever they are.
  3. Sorry what was this thread about- I just passed out through the sudden shock...
  4. Christ guys! All I was doing was expressing my frustration at the disparity between the two sets of moulding- Airfix managed to screw both up badly because they didn't care enough- nothing more, nothing less. IF- they had paid a little more attention, they could have had a killer Mk9 (inside and out) and then followed up with a killer Mk1 But they dropped the ball both times becasue they were STUPID- cannot think of any get out clause that would fit the negligence. I would add that IF they had troubles finding a budget for the Mk9, but chose to go nuclear with the outer surface detail, and go cheapo on the internals and canopy etc, I could appreciate that, but to follow it up with a beautifully rigged and internally detailed Mk1, with utter shitola exterior details like something that came free out of a cornflake packet- is beyond belief
  5. he thing that gets me is NOT the accuracy- its the fact that if they did to the Mk1 on the outside the same as the '9 then we would almost have a perfect 1/72 mk1 Spit
  6. Having a fiddle around with the Mk1& 9 as I am shortly going to be building a Spitfire or three. Now- HOW can Airfix do this; Eminently acceptable surface detail on the Mk9, cockpit and small details from hell Utterly rubbish surface detail on the Mk1- brilliant cockpit and other details- AAAARRRGHHHHHHH Also, the wing root chord is more on the Mk9- huh?
  7. Please put a sunglasses warning on the thread title..... That's a ver-ry nice
  8. I nearly didn't click on this because the old Revell P-51B is not the greatest kit, and I wasn't expectng a lot- but I have to say that is bloody nicely done! Impressive finishing skills indeed. Also happens to be a fave of mine- so double well done
  9. Although I certainly agree on a personal level with Jonners, I DO feel there could just possibly be "issues" with certain aspects of this stuff. Like for instance the F-15 that did a one way trip. You never know about poo-poo going wrong until after its gone wrong
