  1. Boss plane! Love Japanese Starfighters. Gerry Anderson must've 'advised' Lockheed at the design phase
  2. Re your decals: could the yellow be Euro Sulfur Yellow RAL1016? Hataka do a 17mm acrylic
  3. Hi Sam, great progress! This the beastie you looking for? Part 309 of Revell's 04484. The Kit is 'discontinued' but I managed to get one from ebay.de (not cheap!) I Could knock out a cast copy of the part for you (Oyumaru/Miliput). And how the real thing looks on Helimed 76. Voodoo-S8 will probably have pics with better detail. Regards, Ian
  4. Chili nuts anyone? Thought I’d come through from the lounge to see what all the kerfuffle was in the public bar! Superb subject Sam, and a great start. I’ve got a couple of discontinued 1/32 Revell EC135s in my stash; (04484 ‘Polis’ and 04659 ’ADAC’) which together gives me the bits to do Helimed 76, G-SCAA, the Scottish Charity Air Ambulance operating out of Perth. Don’t know when I’ll get started on it – the paint job is a real doozy! So very interested in your progress and your research/detective work. Hopefully it’ll give me the much-needed impetus! Regards
  5. Yeah, thought so. Effect looks fine in your pics. Eduard's 1/48 much more accurate than Revell's 1/32!
  6. Yup, that's a good'un! Early pitot, domed rivets towards the rear, u/c-down indicators. And not a crowbar to be seen! Excellent. The 'Halo' effect on the roundels?
  7. Lovely Chopper! Did the kit behave? (Kitty Hawk has had some mixed comments). Were the Irish decals included?
  8. Well done! Cramming all that into a 1/72! Where did you source your electrics?
  9. Up to late 1939 most Mk Is had no head armour, windshield armour, nor fuel tank armour - so it would depend on the time period, and the particular aircraft you're depicting
  10. Don't know if I imagined this, but I seem to recollect seeing photo etch for the tail fin aerial connection and gun-heating air vents for early mark Spits. Of course I can't find anything online now! Was I dreaming?
  11. Great job, chipping is just right IMO. What's your technique? Wish Tamiya would do a 1/32 Mk I.
  12. Beautiful beastie! Remember an air show at Leuchars when I was a kid, a whole squadron of Phantoms doing a low pass over the crowd. The noise was indescribable! What a rush
