  1. I got a AFV 1/35 Churchill Mk.III from my sister for xmas. I have never built a AFV kit is there anything I should watch out for?
  2. I ordered on Ultracast on the day posted and they arrived on Monday. Not bad for December from Canada.
  3. I am in the middle of making a Airfix 1/48 P-51D Mustang, It's a great kit apart from the seat it lets it down. I have looked on Ebay, Hannants and Google and I can't seem to find anything. Does anyone make a Resin seat with belts with the armor plate in 1/48?
  4. I have been searching the last couple of days on google and not really coming up with any solid finds. I am trying to find a online shop in the UK that does aftermarket decals for US Sherman's and German vehicles for 1944 July onwards. Hannants has let me down, they used to do a whole different range or military decals but they only seem to do these Star decals and there is not a lot for US in France. Any help on where to go for decals would be great. Oh and please don't say EBAY.
  5. Thanks guys you have given us a lot to think about and to read into, he is undecided if he wants Historically accurate or just to show what each side had to offer. I am leaning towards being accurate but this is about him and getting him into our hobby after all.
  6. I am going to be doing a diorama with my stepson as he has really got into modelling lately. Our idea is to have a American or British armoured column coming down some French rustic road towards a bridge and town. With a German Armoured Division waiting for them. Now the American and British side of things is easy to find out, but we are having problems finding out what type of tanks would be in place in France 1944. So far all I have found out is Panther, Tiger 1 and King Tiger. But there was many types of Panthers, then there was Panzers, tank killers etc etc. Can someone help me with what would be a good idea to use German wise for our Diorama? This area is all new to me as I am normally aircraft builder, but my stepson prefers things on the ground which is why we decided this option. Any help on this would be greatly received.
  7. Hey all, I finally got a 1/24 Airfix Hawker Typhoon Mk.1b bubble top. I I had a good look at the instructions and parts and got myself some Masks and Cockpit Dials as the kit is lacking them on the decals. Is there anything else this kit needs as replacement or for improvement? As I want to do this kit some justice when I start, as I be collecting the bits over the next several months I haven’t set a price limit yet as I be building this as I recover from major surgery later in the year. So any ideas or advice would be appreciated.
  8. I am not sure if you can still get them but Mr Color did actual colours for the F-22 in a set for when Hasegawa released there 1/48 F-22. That gives you the correct metallic sheen you need. EDIT: Ok according to Hasegawa and Mr Hobby you use SM203/4 and mix it 50% with the camo colours to get the shine you need as they are a Super fine metal colours.
  9. This is the only image i could find of his plane on google.
  10. my mistake it is 42- I mistyped, so I go with the Curtis prop for my choice?
  11. Thanks Guys some really great info there. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. The plane I am building is: P-47D-4-RA, 48-22762 Lt Samuel Stamps of 56FG/63FS, Halesworth Feb-March 1944 I am not sure now if it's a Hamilton prop.
  12. I have a really noob question, I have a Tamiya 1/48 P-47D Razorback that I might start over the Christmas period, the scheme I have chosen calls for the Hamilton Prop but I can not tell which one out of the 2 supplied is the one I need. Can someone please help me by pointing me in the right direction.
  13. I am about to start my 1/48 F/A-18F and I have to say I find the inbox loadout extremely boring. Now I am not up on my USN modern stuff but I know that F/A-18E/F like the legacy Hornets have those racks (not sure of the name) where they can have things like Mk 82's, GBU 12's GBU 38's side by side. Now I looked at the hase kits it seems that only the Legacy Hornet kits only come with the older version of it. Does anyone make any resin ones? I had a look on Hannants but not knowing the name of them it was a fruitless exercise to be honest.
  14. Well I got annoyed trying to find the decals I discovered that Superscale also do a 1/72 VFA-2 decals but that was no joy either. My other half knew I was getting upset by this she surprised me with a 1/48 Revell F/A-18F and Superscale VFA-2 decals this morning, so the 1/72 will go in the stash and I will build the gift instead.
