  1. I must be 1 of a very select few that displays their models 'in flight'. I see so many excellant completed builds on this site but I always wonder why the vast majority of completed builds are shown on the ground with as many access panels, control surfaces, ladders and assorted ground associated parts included. It's just a question, I'm curious to know the reasons as I much prefer to see the real thing in the air so try to model them likewise.

    Airfix 1:48 Canberra conversion

    Hi, I'm pretty much at the painting stage with this beast. Just wondered if you could let me know which red you used for the tail. Regards

    Airfix 1:48 Canberra conversion

    Thanks john. All ordered now so fingers crossed I can get it to fit. First time I've tried anything like this so was going to tactically ignore the canopy. I have to admit, and I'm sure every purist will hate me for saying, but I can't see what the difference is between the 2. Could you shed some light? If it's a major difference I might hack away. Did try and look at the sig but it wouldn't load. Interest in the Canberra is limited but am bored of modelling bog standard kits so was after something a bit more interesting. I was really after a PR.9 kit but I had more chance of finding hens teeth. I think a T.17 is a good replacement and certainly an interesting aircraft. Thanks for your help.
  6. I have the Airfix 1:48 Canberra B2/B20 (A10101) kit but am wanting to convert it to something different. I have seen that Alleycat produce a conversaton kit to make a T.17 varient. Does this conversion kit fit with the Airfix model & if So, any advice on what needs to be done or to look out for when carrying this out. Thanks

    F-21A Lion/Kfir C.1

    I'm in the process of starting a F-21A Lion used by the US Navy as an aggressor. Need a little help with colours if anyone out there has knowledge. The instructions give the following FS colours; -35251 Aggressor Grey -36307 Light Sea Grey -35237 Grayish Blue If anyone can give me an approximate match for either a Humbrol, Tamyia or Revell paint for any of the above that would be great. I'm not adverse to a bit of mixing but I'm not too concerned with 100% accuracy. Cheers

    Harrier ZD379 Retirerment flight

    Thanks Nick, Plenty of detail for me to use, just what I needed. Simple answer in why ZD379 is that the kit comes with decals for it. The instructions present it in the temporary winter camp applied for exercises in Norway but I didn't fancy that so once I found that ZD379 had taken part on the final flight I thought that would be a good way to go.
  9. I'm looking to complete a 1/48 Eduard Harrier GR.9 as ZD379 when flown in the Harrier retirement 2010. Could anyone clarify what colour scheme was carried that day? Was it the all over light grey or the 2 tone scheme. Also, it would be helpful if anyone could tell me if the centre line weapons pylon was fitted Thanks

    Pink PRU Spitfire

    Hi, I've looked at a lot of info regarding pink spitfires and I think I have the colour sorted. I'm making an FR Mk.IXc and was wondering if they had any stencil details on them?. I haven't found a huge amount of info on this mark of PRU spitfire but the other marks seem to lack the stenciling but the only kits I have seen for an FR Mk.lXc show stencils. thanks
  11. Hi, I'm planning on making a 1:48 model of the Typhoon and Spitfire that flew at RIAT 2015. I can find a decal sheet for the typhoon but the spitfire is proving harder to come by. Any ideas on where I can get hold of them or how I can cobble them together out of stencil sheets? Much appreciated

    Revell 1/72 F/A-18F

    Awesome build. Think I'll leave mine in it's box as that's a standard I'll never achieve!
  13. That should be a Spitfire Mk.lX not lV.
  14. I'd always wanted to complete a kit in this way and this kit gave me the perfect reason to do it. I've since also completed a Swordfish and Dauntless in the same style. Hope you like.
  15. Darby, having made all RAF, SHAR and USMC AV-8's I felt it was time to try something different. jhutchi, new aircraft were made after 1945, I'll post a spitfire for you later
