  1. that's brilliant and many thanks for all of the help. I'm doing a hasegawa Stuka 1/48 and fortunately i bought two engines in case i make a mistake!
  2. Hi, I read on another thread that someone has done a resin bath. is this just a cold water wash or is it something else?
  3. Hi - I want to make a diorama of an airfield revetment. What do people recommend using to create large amounts of earth etc?
  4. Hi, I've just bought this kit and extras from eBay but will watch with interest. When you say resin bath, is that just fresh water?
  5. I let my frustration get the better of me on the Airfix Instragam account - by why exactly do we have to wait 9 ffffffing months for this when if, if they knew they were going to re-release it, why couldn't they have it ready to sell
  6. Brilliant thanks for that, it seemed a bit too “yellow” but if Airfix are talking to an expert that’s good enough for me!!!!
  7. Inspired by a thread I’ve seen in here about the old airwing on HMS ARK ROYAL, I’ve got a Phantom FG.1, a couple of Wessex’ and I’ve just bought the sword 1/72 scale Gannet AEW, looks like a great kit and I’m looking forward to it. id love to make it folded wing, but has anyone ever tried mating the airwaves wing fold photo etch which is for the Revell kit with this (sword) kit?
  8. I’ve got two of these, one of which I’ve nearly finished and is an experiment to see if I could move onto doing a professional job like you guys. Two questions......is humbrol no74 “linen” realistic for the internal bays such as wheel housings etc and wing internals for the folded wing option. and.....has anyone used the Eduard etched kits to use with this kit?
  9. Guys thanks for this, I was watching a trumpeter 1/48 Sea Fury but I’ll let it go. I bought two Airfix SFs, one to practice with and the other to spend some time and effort on. Quick question, has anyone used the photo etched sets from Eduard on the Airfix Sea Fury?
  10. Arrggggggghhhhhhhhh. I’ve been looking forward to building this for ages....but I’m noticing that some bits don’t fit..I’m struggling with the nose sections, which ever way I glue is there is a gap. im thinking of buying the trumpeter version..has anyone else had this issue?
  11. Hi, does anyone know of a manufacturer of a 1/48 Scale Gannet AEW?
  12. Hi I've got the martlet version of the airfix wildcat, do you know if the Eduard PE kit will fit that as well?

      Hi. Normal fit. But, in fact, it is quite possible to do without the set for cockpit. Because you can't see something. But flaps set is much better. But this requires serious messing around plastic.

  13. Hi, I'm a great fan of this aircraft but have never attempted a 1/32 scale before.. Does anyone have any tips comments on which PE parts are the best? Cheers carlos
  14. Hi, I've seen lots of amazing finished projects on here where the tiny gap and rivets are highlighted by dark paint? How do I do this?
  15. Hi I've seen lots of pics of models in WIP that show the rivets and joins accentuated how do you do this?
  16. Hi two questions: I've just bought the new airfix 1:48 scale pr mk vi and it had two sets of wings and fuselage is that normal? Also does anyone know if the eduard tamaya photo etch additions fit this set? I'm liking the internal details you've put into yours
  17. Hi thanks for this. I bought my son an Airfix short Stirling and I thought it was horrendous. It barely fit together but I'll try the airfix Lancaster Thanks
  18. Hi I'm going to do a Lancaster bomber next, who makes the best version and is there a 1/48 scale version? Thanks
