    Spitfire pilot pistol

    Have you thought of the pilot waving a flare gun to destroy the plane with rather than a pistol? Tom
  2. building a 1/48 Dragon Ju88. Joined fuselage and then realised I hadn't put the two little underside windows in aft of the wings. I don't want to split the beastie so does anyone have any ideas? I'm thinking of using superglue to build up a ridge inside the holes to give them something to support them. All suggestions welcome Tom

    Clamping wings

    I thought of posting this in the 'Tips and Tricks' section, but, alas, the site wouldn't let me. Cementing the wings together on a 1/48 Spit, I found I needed a bit more pressure on the inboard leading edges. Clothes pegs kept slipping off. I cut thin strips of pencil eraser and used these as spacers to 'grip' the curved areas then sandwiched them to the wings with clothes pegs. Worked fine. Tom

    PANELS LINES TYPE --->QUERY RESOLVED<-----THANKS

    Your asking for kits with recessed (inwards) panel lines. What specific aircraft do you wish to model, (e.g. Spitfire, Me109, FW190, Mustang, Hurricane etc.). Pick an aircraft type, pick a manufacturer and search on scalemates for reviews on that subject then (if you want) pick another manufacturer and repeat. Tom

  7. Apart from the ship pointing in the waves direction I don't think there'd be any. If you want to make it a little 'rough' It'd look like the vessel was moving only without a wake or pronounced bow wave. If you made your sea really, really rough waves would still break over the bows (although the ship's captain might decide not to anchor in those conditions and just steam very slowly into the waves).

    Camouflage

    I temporarily construct superstructure deck assemblies together with bluetac, mask and spray as required, then add smaller parts and paint them the 'background' colour as necessary (or pre paint them first if it's easier) Take your time masking to get the camo to look right. I tried Kriegsmarine splinter camo on a Tirpitz many moons ago and had to re-do it several times, I seemed to constantly over estimate the size and shape of certain areas of colour. So step back and examine the pattern constantly. Tom

    British Ammo markings

    Who does ammunition box marking. I've got some Resicast ammo sets 25pdr ammo 35.287 boxes and UK small ammo boxes 35.2227 (3" mortar; four types of .303) and am considering decaling some of them up. I see Archer do the 25pdr but what about others?

    Sexton part id clarification

    The kit comes with 4 boxes on the rear deck parts C13 and C14 to be fitted in sep 11. I originally thought they were 25pdr ammo boxes. But, on further inspection (and a google search) methinks they might be Bren gun ammo boxes. TIA Tom
