  1. Hello,Dear Stix - Please accept my apologies for this late reply to your very kind message.Thank you so much,as always.I look forward to more appearance again on BM.My bench time has been quite limited recently but currently at the painting stages of a 1/32 scale Phantom in the JASDF ‘Oceanic Scheme’.I look forward to posting her here when she’s finished. My best regards to You and Mrs.Stix.
  2. Hello,Alan - Thank you so much.My apologies for my late reply.I need to get more active on Britmodeller again.The real aircraft in this anniversary scheme wore an immaculate full gloss finish.This model was painted in Mr.Hobby Aqueous and I built the shine up with about four coats of brush-applied ‘Klear/Pledge’. It’s a pleasure to being in contact with you again.My best regards,Paul.
  3. Hello,Tony - Two superbly finished Hurricanes here.A fine tribute to the pilot and your favourite aircraft.Great work as always.
  4. Hello,Russ - Thank you very much.This is my first JASDF scheme and plan on doing a Sea Camouflage build when I can. All The Best,Paul.
  5. Hello,David - Thank you so much.I must be a glutton for punishment because I love schemes like this.This was my second in a row so my current build is a much easier one! All The Best,Paul.
  6. Hello,Andy - Thank you ever so much.I’m a great fan of colourful Anniversary/Special Schemes. All The Best,Paul.
  7. Hello,Evert - Thank you very much.I can honestly say they are the best I’ve ever used and can wholeheartedly recommend them.They do have interesting subjects.In this case,for example, the gold bands on the nose needed quite a bit of manipulation,particularly over the gun fairing but there was no tearing or splitting and responded perfectly. All The Best,Paul.
  8. Hello,Russ - A beautifully built,finished and displayed example of my lifelong favourite aircraft.I love it! All The Best, Paul.
  9. Hello,Gary - Thank you ever so much,my friend.All things considered this build went from start to finish without any issues whatsoever.Unlike the previous Transatlantic Anniversary Scheme Phantom. This build was also the very first time that I’d airbrushed acrylic paint.( Cobalt Blue -Mr.Hobby Aqueous).Again,no issues whatsoever.The quality and ease of use of the DXM Decals I cannot praise highly enough and they performed impeccably with MicroSol only.After airbrushing the Cobalt Blue, the subsequent coats of ‘Klear/Pledge’ were brush-applied,nothing more. I fell in love with scheme as soon as I saw a photo of the real aircraft.Yes,it’s blingy but certainly an eye-catcher. Will phone you shortly.It will be great to have a natter and catch up,before Christmas! As Always, Paul.
  10. Hello,Orion - Thank you ever so much.The real subject shone like a mirror and kept absolutely immaculate.Just the way I love them! All The Best,Paul.
  11. Hello,29 Triplex - Thank you ever so much.Yes indeed,these decals are by DXM and an absolute joy to work with.I couldn’t find any issue with them whatsoever.Their quality made this scheme doable. All The Best,Paul.
  12. Hello,Steve - Another beautifully built and finished model of what is becoming a more and more appealing subject to me.Great work as always. All The Best,Paul.
  13. Hello and thank you both very much, gentlemen.The JASDF isn’t backward at coming forward with decorative schemes.My next Phantom build will be a Michigan ANG aircraft with nose-art.All the very best,Paul.
  14. Hello,Friends - Many thanks to each and every one of you for your very kind replies.They’re much appreciated and respected.I don’t know where the introduction to this build went but I’ll just say this was the first build that I’ve airbrushed with acrylic paint.I used Mr.Hobby Aqeous.The colour is Cobalt Blue.I brush-applied ‘Klear/Pledge’ floor polish overall before and after decalling.I wholeheartedly recommend the quality of DXM decals.They were faultless to work with and responded well to Microsol.I used ‘XTreme Metal’ on the NMF areas. All The Very Best,Paul.
