  1. Hi all To my eye the Tamiya "Buff" is the closest I have got to LS61, Not sure of other's experiences in that regard. May have been the South African LS61 version used in WW2 was slightly lighter than the UK one? Tim
  2. Ettienne who runs that site is a member on here as far as I know0 Tim.
  3. Hi all Yes, MavDecals are the South African go-to producer of SAAF decals. Can be a little brittle at times, so gently with the applications. Tim South Africa.
  4. Francis I have a book on landing craft lying around somewhere - I think it includes basic plans. PM me and maybe I can email you the relevant pages. Tim
  5. Try Dan Taylor modelworks or Milicast They do Landing craft in 72nd scale - they may even have such a kit. They do crew and I know they do an LCI, unless you specifically wan the small scale Tim
  6. Nice one Ian! Wish someone would do the WOT series in 1:72 though.

    Happy Easter

    Happy Easter one and all Tim
  8. Given the colour of the one in the SA Military museum in Johannesburg (they were afterall built in SA), the Mk IV is pretty much correct colour. Tim
  9. Don't forget the decals from this lot (have not tried them myself - qualifier) https://www.lmdecals.gr/index.php/en/

    Maybe @Stefaan can weigh in on this one chaps. He is based here in South Africa and I suspect has access to the museum data (if I remember correctly). I too can check later for you - I am out of town for the week, but when back home in Durban will contact my buds at the museum / check my references on this. Tim South Africa
  12. The East Africa Sky is a more grey-blue than the British one. Agree about the Belling book. Tim
  13. Maybe post this query on the diorama board - there are very expert members there - some great work done to assist you. Lots of good videos on you-tube to help with dio bases and water effects too.
  14. Hi all What I found interesting about the video clip was the Coles crane, while camouflaged on the sides still appears to have an RAF blue jib with the topside of the jib a yellow colour, unless I am missing something subtle. The same appeared to be true for the jib of the ?Rapier crane lifting the prop off the Lanc! Help me understand if I was wrong. So maybe the paint rules are not so rigidly applied as some others seem to have us believe. Or, was this movie-clip actually post-war recreation? Tim
