  1. Bear in mind Caseys recipe was for Humbrol 96 which is not the same colour as RAF Blue Grey as found on RN Helicopters. Shouldn’t be a problem getting the Hataka paint from Poland - I’ve ordered from that particular Polish EBay shop without difficulty before. But looks like there are also UK stockists who would sell just that paint if you do a bit of Googling Pat
  2. You can get individual Hataka paints - I can see RAF blue grey on EBay at the moment - would be £5 incl postage from Poland. I have that paint and it looks a pretty good match. Pat
  3. Thanks Dave - much appreciated. Pat
  4. I’m using the Falcon one although will not use the front fuselage. As am doing a late Neptune with the big glazed nose and sting will just move the radome, build up the cockpit area to take the new vac canopy and add a couple of windows to the Hasegawa front end.
  5. Happy New Year folks!! Have seen a number of pics of RAF Neptunes that have a lighter patch at the front of the radome (and also on the front of the port droptank). I know that the colour at the rear of the "sting" is a browny colour and that would be my guess for the radome too, but wondered if anyone knew for sure? Have just taken a saw to the Hasegawa Neptune to commence the conversion Pat https://www.verslo.is/baldur/p2/british/WX553_35-F_640.jpg
  6. It certainly does - it has all the airframe mods - despite having decal options that would not have had the mods Pat
  7. Thanks chaps - have ordered myself a copy! Pat
  8. And some versions instructions have you put the bulged cabin window in the wrong window too
  9. Is there a guide anywhere to at what point in time the various upgrades to the F-105D airframe got implemented or became standard fit for new build aircraft? I am thinking of things like the fuselage side scoops, the venting on the gun housing, the thin cable duct along the spine, various scabbed armour plating etc? Pat
  10. That looks great Colin - I’m actually in the process of doing one of these myself (with Air Graphics engine and bulged doors) and will pinch some of your ideas for improvements as well. is that some stray masking tape on the port side or has the co-pilot drawn the blinds??!! Pat
  11. That’s brilliant to hear that someone flew the aircraft that I modelled!! Thanks for letting me know Ha! No although I’m doing a 3D printed Andover in 72nd which is a big old bird. The Neptune I think is bigger still but the good news is we are in the process of having our garage converted so I’m hoping for some extra shelf space !!!
  12. Lovely job - would like to see the Frog kit and the newer Revell offering next to each other. Next job maybe?
  13. Was very sad to hear about the passing of Mel Bromley recently so this is a small tribute to Mel who ran S&M Models and gave us 72nd modellers a lot of pleasure producing kits like this, the Canberra B2 and the Sycamore. RIP Mel. This was a lovely little kit to put together with the one criticism being the very spindly prop which had broken on the sprue. I replaced this with a reshaped prop from an Airfix Skyvan. Not all Provosts have the ribbing on the control surfaces portrayed on the kit which seems to be restricted to certain serial blocks - check your references!! I decided I wanted to portray a machine in the silver and day-glo scheme with the CFS and finding pics that definitively showed the location of the code letters and the demarkation of the day-glo areas was quite difficult. There seemed to be a number of variations of day-glo around the tail area in particular. In the end this is a little bit of an informed guess - In know that XF892 carried the pattern shown and was coded "P-B" when in the earlier silver and yellow scheme and I know that many CFS Provosts retained the same codes when they switched to day-glo. The model was given an all-over coat of white primer and the day-glo was a 50/50 mix of Humbrol acrylic Orange H18 and Fire Orange H209. The day-glo was then masked off and Citadel Chainmaill was used for the silver areas. Markings came from the spares box. Hope you like. Pat
  14. Up until my most recent order fine but not had recent order 3 months after ordering
