  1. Air-Craft.net stock the Mr Hobby Aqueous range. Mr Hobby have recently brought out a new Aqueous Mr Surfacer 1000 primer.
  2. The only intake related stuff I've seen for the ZM Phantom is the Out of Production Phase Hangar Resin Seamless Intakes and the GT Resin Seamless Intakes that are sold through Spruebrothers.

    F-4EJ Kai Questions

    On a related note, does anyone know of any seamless intakes for the ZM kit apart from the OOP Phase Hangar Resin and the GT Resin ones which are sold via Spruebrothers who are not sending goods to UK due post Brexit HMRC rules. In trying to make the kit intakes seamless or as smooth as I can get them, I have managed to create a saw tooth effect at the edge of each intake tube.

    F-4EJ Kai Questions

    Currently building the ZM 1/48 F-4EJ Kai, and have a few questions related to colours that are not well explained in the instructions. 1. The instructions show a demarcation between white and the exterior grey occuring at the join between the intake trunking and the intake. Is this accurate for a JASDF Phantom? 2. There is no colour listed for the interior of the air brake housing. The air brakes themselves are red on their inside. I have painted the interior white for the time being. Should this be red? 3. What colours are the edges of the flaps and slats painted?
  7. As your struggling to get an answer here, I would suggest that you try contacting Paul Bretland via the ISM Facebook page or emailing UMP Retail. He mentions in his YouTube videos if anyone has any problems to get in touch. I'm sorry I can't offer any other suggestions but I don't have an Apex.

    Joint flaws

    It's a really thin enamel based pin wash that uses capillary action to fill panel lines. https://www.tamiya.com/english/products/87131_133panel_accent/index.htm It's not officially imported by the UK distributor for Tamiya. You can however get it from Amazon, eBay and other suppliers who are EU, US or Far East based. This is an example of where it is being used to check the filling and scribing work prior to paint. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235084404-132-brit-phantom-fg1-xv571-conversion-from-tamiya-and-wild-hare-set/&do=findComment&comment=4182581

    Joint flaws

    I've seen people using Tamiya Panel Line Wash to check panel lines etc before priming - both for ones that have been filled and for others that need to be rescribed.
  10. The box art and built up model of the launch version look really good. I can see a load of Reedoak figures getting purchased to go with this, both deck and flight crew.

    Desk lamp

    I've got one of these from IKEA. https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/p/tertial-work-lamp-dark-grey-40450802/ It's not too bad. You need to be careful with the bulbs to make sure you get one that gives a cold white light rather than a warmer yellowish light.
  12. I'd agree with this. Sounds as if Tamiya have replaced the spars that the wings slide onto that allow them to swing with a single spar that locks the wings in the forward position.
  13. Don't think it's imported by the UK distributor. Got some recently from Amazon UK website, sold by Dominio Italy. Cost nearly £12 by time factored in postage.
  14. Saw this on Twitter so not sure if it counts. Old Merc AMG rally car.
  15. Al, Have a look at page 8 of this build thread on LSP. https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/89339-124-airfix-f6f-5-hellcat-kicked-up-a-notch-june-1021-fuselage-closed/
