  1. Hmm, that is interesting, thanks for the info.
  2. I've toned it down a bit Christer and contemplating doing a bit more. I'm trying to do it in controlled stages so as not to lose the effect totally.
  3. Here you go.... https://www.amazon.co.uk/Proops-Piece-Micro-Twist-Swivel/dp/B00LX17XXW/ref=sr_1_3_sspa?crid=322RSMO1JJBUP&keywords=pin+vice+drill+set&qid=1558443878&s=gateway&sprefix=Pin+vice%2Caps%2C183&sr=8-3-spons&psc=1 If you search for Pin vice and bits you'll find loads more. Roger.
  4. Sorry, I hope I haven't caused any confusion. Troy's information is correct, however follow my reply for steps, 31, 32, 36 and 37. Roger.
  5. If you have a look at the marking option in steps 74 and 75 you will notice the difference between the wingtips. You need to choose whether to build the camo (early) step 74 version or the later clipped wingtip version, step 75, with metal finish. Roger.
  6. I've just found the instructions online. You only need to open them up if you want to fit the bombs which is optional.
  7. Have a look further along in the instructions to see what fits there. As for what will happen if you don't, nothing, the world will keep turning so don't stress yourself just enjoy building the kit. If you do decide you want to open up the holes heat a pin and open them up that way. Roger.
  8. Gloss white, that's exactly the problem I'm having at the moment. My solution is to spray it on top of the palest grey I can find in the paint box. Unfortunately there's been a bit of paint build up before I reached that conclusion. Roger.
  9. Today I've been playing around laying some different tones on the upper surfaces of the aircraft. I think it might need some light coats of something else, perhaps the base colour, to blend it in and give smoother transitions between the tones.
  10. Home on leave for my month off and work can continue on the Hellcat.
  11. For that price it's got to be worth a read whether we agree with the author or not.
  12. Lol, got the CD!
  13. Has anyone here read the above book by Alan Brown? There's copies cheap enough but I was wondering if it's worth a read. Roger.
  14. That's exactly what I've been doing Dennis. My day will come..... just not yet.
  15. 1/72? WOW!!!! It's always a pleasure seeing your work Faud. Roger.
