    AugustaWestland Wildcat info please

    Thanks guys, that is all brilliant help! So I've as much chance of converting the Lynx to a Wildcat as England has of winning a penalty shoot-out in the World Cup!! Oh, hang on..... But seriously, thank you for the time with all the replies and photographs, it is really appreciated. I'll just wait for either Airfix or Revell to come out with a proper kit now!
  2. I've just started one of these myself and have just found your one here. What a lovely job you've made of her, really superb work! A quick question, which paints did you use for the Green over Blue finish? One small comment, if I may, is that ailerons deflect in opposed directions and the control column would need to be positioned towards the up-going aileron. If the elevators are deflected down, as most WWII aircraft would be seen whilst on the ground, deflecting the control column forward makes for a more accurate representation.

    Polikarpov I-16 Type 24 ICM 1:48

    Hi Michael, so how is this one coming along? I've just started one myself, so found your thread very inspiring!
  4. Hi all, A simple question to begin with: Is it possible at all to convert any existing 1/48 or 1/32 Lynx kit into the AW159 Wildcat?

    Airfix 24th Typhoon Zipp X

    I've just found this thread and am in total awe at your work Bob! Absolutely amazing level of detail and now you've got me scouring the various sites to maybe pick up one too!
  6. Well, thanks for reviving this thread! It is still a WIP, but it has not been banished to the cupboard yet. When a build goes in the cupboard it rarely sees the light of day again! At least this is still on the bench!! Thank you for your kind words!!

    Hello from Brisbane

    Wow! Britmodeller should possibly think about changing its name to Worldmodeller, it's got a ring to it! What do you think @Mike? from me, an expat Brit in France whose next visit to the UK will be to Plymouth to be present at my son's passing out parade at HMS Raleigh. I spent many happy days in Brisbane mostly eating at either Jimmy's on the Mall or at the Brekkie Creek Hotel! Ironically it was breakfast at Jimmy's but dinner at the Brekkie Creek! Damn you Australia for my addiction to quality red meat!

    Grumman A-6E Intruder - info please

    Wow! Great info and so quickly too! I did check Hannants for the decals and I really would prefer a late A-6E TRAM scheme, so these are limited. Image is copyright AOA Decals from their site and I apologise for 'nicking' it. But the scheme that I have in mind is AJ-500 (16175) as it breaks up the greys with a bit of colour. But I guess with everything 'dropped' on the model, there are plenty of red areas exposed that would look attractive Now I've seen the photos, thanks to Giorgio, I really like this load: And thanks also, Mr. Woo! WAFU? If that is what I think that is, my Son has just started with the RN as an AT!
  11. Morning all! I've recently purchased the Trumpeter 1/32 A-6E/TRAM Intruder. I have no idea why, but the Intruder along with a few other U.S. aircraft, sits firmly amongst my favourite aircraft types. Information regarding weapon loads is fairly difficult to find, along with good photographs, so I thought I would ask here what is a good and accurate load involving preferably some Mk.20 Rockeyes and maybe AGM-88 or AGM-84E missiles? I wanted to avoid using any "Green" bombs as I'm rather bored of Mk.82s! Any suggestions considered along with ideas on schemes, with decals if available. There does seem to be a shortage of decent schemes available in 1/32, the 1/48 kits have loads available! Thanks in advance, Mark
  12. Hi Jannie! You are right! Flt. Lt. Andrew Beauchamp-Proctor VC DSO MC DFC did indeed fly the Snipe and sadly lost his life during a practice detail prior to an air display due to be held at RAF Hendon in 1921. Thanks Darryl! She's almost at the top of the 'To Finish' list!! Cheers Kev! I'll have a try with that technique later today.
