  1. I was in the Hornby shop this morning in Margate and was pleasantly surprised to see a new ( incomplete ) range of enamel paint. I am aware that there not everybody's cup of tea but they are the only paints that I have used in fifty odd years. I have tried Xtracote but could not get on with them in the long term. Incidentally, on the floor was a stack of the new Vulcan kits reduced to £50. Keith
  2. As an experiment I painted the interior of one of my 72nd Spitfires with the base colours of cockpit green and black. With a little dry brushing and a dab of satin varnish on the instruments and some seat belts from masking tape that was it. I have done one with just a black interior , seat belts and closed it up. With the hood closed there really was nothing to be seen. Keith
  3. Lovely pictures, thank you. It is great to see so many wonderful classic aircraft in such wonderful condition. Keith
  4. Nice to see the Aztec and other light aircraft being given a chance. I think 3d printing lends itself to this kind of subject. I am on my first 3d model only I am giving myself a challenge with a Fairey III. As for internal colours I think you can choose as you like, who's going to tell you that it's wrong. Keith
  5. With the demise of two of your chosen subjects I would hope it is safe to build another! Here's to your next project. Keith
  6. Very nice Lightningboy. Interesting how the F16 spawned a couple of derivatives and more if the arrow wing delta is figured in. Might I suggest you choose carefully your next project! Keith
  7. Excellent coverage, thank you for sharing with us. That Swedish jet trio reminds me of the British heritage display flight.... Keith
  8. On this subject of far east Lancaster's I have never seen a model Lancaster with the saddle tank that I believe would have been used. Keith
  9. I think you have captured the Hurricane just right there Bruce,and I do like your exhaust staining ! Keith
  10. One thing is for sure, the national markings are in keeping with the size of the aircraft. Reference the RAF! Keith
  11. I always wondered how that Jordanian fin flash got out of the paint shop. What happened to line of flight? I don't recall seeing other Jordanian aircraft with such sloppy application. And yes you may recall my consternation at the RAF Hawk T2 fin flashes. Keith
  12. This is my first printed model project and I will be treading carefully! I am chuffed to bits with the parts provided by Ben and hope to do his work and skills justice. I have removed most parts from the trees and gave them a gentle wash. After a bit of research via the Phillip Jarrett book on the Fairy III F I will crack on. Stay tuned. Keith.
  13. I suppose a folding mod would take about three years and some daft amount of money to do. Does the Seahawk fold down to the size of a Lynx or Wildcat? Keith
  14. Marvelous job on a quiet basic kit. Did you have to put a spar through the fuselage? I seem to remember the wing joints were a bit sloppy and not too strong. My local airfield Manston used to get these in almost weekly sometimes daily so it seemed at the time and on leaving one could hear them droning away for ages. Thank you for sharing and jogging the memory card Keith
  15. Airbus flew over here,East Kent about an hour ago in what I would imagine a preliminary scheme of overall white with just vertical stripes on the fin. Keith
