  1. I've got the DU-G letters in sky (dunno from where) you can have, but Oz is a long way from me. /Finn
  2. That's correct. Dunno if they still are available. /Finn
  3. Late to the party, but I've just done a VII this way (it's in the decaling stage) and you pretty much have the idea, however, you do have the short carburettor intake on the eduard sprues. I used the VIII lower wing and carefully sanded off the rear part of the long intake, and it came out neatly.
  4. You might want to try to find an R/C model. There was a guy at Hyperscale that built a 1/18 spitfire with insane details. I believe he based it on a R/C foam model. HTH Finn
  5. I found that when painting the yellow first and then masking it, that the masks did not adhere too well and could come adrift. Painting the blades black and then masking the black, eliminates that problem. Usually I prime the tip in white, as it then only takes a very light coat of yellow. HTH Finn
  6. Is it just me, or has the rearmost Seafire it's undercarriage splayed a bit (Legs not perpendicular to the wing). compared to the rightmost?
  7. There are newer threads on the problem of getting a decent 1/72 Mustang B/C than this 7 year old one General consensus is that even the newer B/C's have not rectified the old kits faults and have introduced problems of their own. No-one is perfect and for my part. I'm impatiently waiting for Tamiya to come up with their take on a B/C. /Finn
  8. I have had all sorts of problems with acrylics drying in the airbrush, so I use Xtra color exclusively. Overtime I have learned just how thin it needs to be to produce that gloss surface that makes decaling a treat. So my vote on Xtracolor /Finn
  9. Thanks, sorry about the trick question, but I'm sitting with DK decals "Spitfire Mk VI/VII/IX High altitude fighters" which, to my surprise, specify Azure blue undersurfaces. Of course the model IS painted, luckily with PRU blue underside Phew... /Finn
  10. I hope that you don't mind my resurrection of this thread, but I have a question to the high altitude painting scheme: Was this Medium sea grey upper and Azure blue undersurfaces or what? TIA Finn
  11. Osprey's aviation elite #3, No 91 'Nigeria' Squadron, has a photo on page 81 of a XII with "Nigeria" on the port side forward of the cockpit. HTH Finn BTW: We had a very long XII thread a while ago, did you see that?
  12. I'm also doing this one, so interested. 100$ question is: If it wasn't yellow, what colour was it and why?
  13. Thank, I'm happy to be corrected. My feeble excuse is that there's so many pictures that has been "altered" that you automatically assume it. With that digression out of the way, we should get back on topic. The question was about hard and soft edge camouflage demarcation. /Finn
  14. I read somewhere in an old modelling magazine that the painter foreman was the one that drew the camouflage pattern with chalk, for the painter to follow and fill out. This is obviously a practice when mats were not used. Come to think about it, does any one know how the mats were used? It's a possibility that the mats were only used to mark the pattern. Edit: Looking at the Whirlwind, isn't that a colourized b/w photo? The red of the upperwing roundels seem different and there is different fields in the foreground but not in the background. /Finn
