  1. Ah so its not going to be a perfect fit. Hmm. Perhaps I can scratch a little filling if needed. Thanks for the response, Maverick Gaz
  2. Oh, sorry. Its the curvy part behind the headlight fixture, that sits above the front wheels. Whichever way I try to position them, they wouldn't sit flush for some reason. The instructions also showed them as having a 1mm wide bar between the two pieces, yet that's not how they were on the sprue Gaz
  3. Very nice work. I just got one of these, and I'm completely thrown by how the front wheel housings are meant to fit under the engine/cab. I can't seem to place them in any way that seems correct. Thanks in advance for any advice Gaz
  4. Thanks for the info, dnl, much appreciated Gaz
  5. Oh cool. So like, if you tighten it it restricts the airflow for I guess, increased pressure? Thanks for the reply bmwh Gaz
  6. Hi all. Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays I got a new airbrush for Christmas, a double-action model with an adjusting screw beneath the paint cup. I'm curious as to what this screw does since none of my previous models have one and I couldn't quite seem to isolate the function through Google searching. Much appreciate for any direction in advance Cheers Gaz
  7. Thanks very much, HOUSTON ^-^/ Gaz
  8. Hah. It was a bit tedious. Luckily they were mostly solid colours Thanks, Francis ^-^ Thank you, Red Gaz

    I got some of these a few years ago, and made the mistake (though this was on advice from AK) of using them like Tamiya. Not quite the case since they're lacquers. I've used some since, with their specific thinner. They can take a little getting used to in thinning (the only stuff I thin in the airbrush pot), but they do spray pretty nice once its down. Brush painting, I haven't tried much with them. Gaz
  10. Thank you, Nikolay ^-^ Gaz
  11. Nice shots, Paul . The effect is indeed very subtle. I'm honestly surprised they raise them so much on the kits given the molds they can achieve nowadays, even if it was make the detail more pronounced. Even slightly raised sections would catch a wash for definition. It's a shame because I would love to try one. Nobody seems to have made a brand new F-22 kit either, or even on an unrelated note, the ever popular A-10. Gaz
  12. I'm holding out hope someone releases a kit closer to the real surface texture as well, heh. Gaz
  13. Oof, that's going to be a lot of sanding, heh. Thanks for the reply, Dennis Gaz
  14. Cheers, Red ^-^ Gaz
  15. Hi all. I see Meng is prepping a new 1/48 F-35. I've been interested in an F-35 kit but there's one thing that keeps putting me off, and that's the raised surface detail with the sawtooth edging. The bits with the paler grey colouring. Every time I see photographs of the actual aircraft, the fuselage is almost completely smooth in these areas, but all scale model renditions show it raised. For purportedly being accurate, it never looks so. Does anyone know if this is indeed accurate and I'm missing something, because I could swear from any image of the real thing it isn't present in the fuselage. Appreciation in advance. Gaz
