    Hello, a returnee modeller

    Hi Welcome back to the dark side For glue I would recommend Tamiya extra thin or Revell contacta For paint when I came back to modelling I switched from my old enamels to acrylic and my paint of choice is now Vallejo But I am sure you will get many opinions on paint as it seems some get on with one manufacturer but not another Hope that makes sense lol B

  6. Be gentle now, first time post of a completed model on here. Took a while to get through this one as I lost interest a few times due to dodgy fit and instructions but persevered and got there in the end I know there are a few omissions and errors but I just wanted it to end lol

    Our Internet stopped working this morning so I decided to chat to my wife for a change I was surprised to find out she doesn't work in Woolworths anymore
  16. Hi I am no expert but I bought the Revell boxed Viper and the main halves of the fuselage had Mobius stamped inside so it seems it is just reboxed by Revell Regards Bik

    SR-71 Blackbird, Blue ?

    Hi Next up for me is a 1/72 SR-71A Blackbird my problem (among many ) is finding a colour to finish it in I have read it was painted a very dark blue but when I search for pictures depending on light and angles etc it can look anything from Matt black to almost silver I was thinking of using Tamiya rubber black XF-85 but might be to dark ? Any thoughts or (polite) suggestions welcome

    Spray booth

    Hi I use the same one as Brianl has linked to. It works fine and a bonus for me is it fairly easily folds down to a smaller size for storage I just sprayed a 1/72 Lanc in mine it was a bit tight mind but still worked ok
  19. Cracking Build well done Regards Bikkit
  20. Looking forward to seeing this one. From what little I know I am fairly sure the Airfix kit is a series 3 and so is the Telecom one in your pic the SWB was 88 inches back then and the LWB was 109 inches regards Bikkit
