  1. Just saw this link..it shows sprue shots, although not that clearly. All I know for sure is that this is definitely not the same parts breakdown as the hasegawa. https://www.car-model-kit.com/model-kit-letadlo-2797-a-7e-corsair-ii-1-48
  2. Hey all, I was talking to a guy at this years Telford show who was selling improved/re tooled 1:48 firebrand resin kits. I’ve tried to find them on the net with no luck. Could someone put me in touch with him please. I was very interested in a kit, but didn’t get chance to go back to the stall. Thanks a lot guys. Phil
  3. I can’t understand why Revell discontinued it.. :(
  4. Do you know if there’s any chance of being able to get a set of the kitty hawk gear seperately at some point ? thanks Phil
  5. Just got this kit today. It looks amazing. Just wondered if you could let me know where to get that metal landing gear please. It looks a lot better than the white metal ones. cheers Phil :)
  6. Hi all Meant to say sooner..mine arrived a couple of weeks ago. Looks great !! Haven’t had much chance to do a lot to it yet. Just cut the wings and tail from their pour stubs.. Cheers Phil
  7. Thanks very much for your help..I’ve rang them just now but the kit is discontinued and they don’t have any stock left. Any ideas ? thanks guys Phil :(
  8. Hi Guys, I'm in the process of building the 1:48 Revell Typhoon, its coming on ok, but I've had a disaster ! I've managed to crack the main canopy while masking it up to paint. This has never happened to me before and I'm livid !! Does anyone have a spare please ? , I'll pay of course. Hope someone can help Many thanks Phil :(
  9. That’s great. Thanks for posting that. I'm pleased to have just heard from Juan on Facebook. He thinks that mine should be shipped by early October, and that we all will get a tracking number emailed to us. I’m happy to know that things are progressing
  10. Hi, I’m glad in a way, that you haven’t heard either.. I was a bit worried it was just me. Yes it would be good to know. Hopefully not too long to wait now. cheers Phil
  11. Have all the scimitar preorders shipped yet ? I haven’t heard anything from Artie to let me know cheers Phil
  12. Picked this kit up at RIAT, I hope it turns out as well as yours has. It looks brilliant !!

    Rafale M help

    Hi John Thanks for letting me know he’s on hols. I’d like to have a more faded jet, like the ones I saw..maybe that won’t be possible with these decals. I hope this isn’t coming across as really picky, or a complaint about the decals, it’s just an observation.. Hopefully when they come off the backing they’ll appear a bit lighter Anyone know a good free image hosting site, that’s as easy to use as photobucket was ? I can’t figure out how to post pictures. I’d rather post pics than just the links to them.. Cheers guys Phil

    Rafale M help

    If you have a look at the pics you’ll see what I mean.. the white “marine” markings are for the drop tanks, the rest in grey I think are too dark.. https://www.imageupload.co.uk/images/2018/07/25/76669D3B-A771-40CC-8044-77634321CC82.jpg https://www.imageupload.co.uk/images/2018/07/25/46192D0D-2AEC-4EDA-8584-E06EE5D12BEF.jpg https://www.imageupload.co.uk/images/2018/07/25/14FA0662-839E-43C7-B5B7-4219BB9A9E8E.jpg

    Rafale M help

    Thanks guys. I really like your rafale Dave, it looks spot on. The marine markings and codes are a nice light shade which looks just like a couple of marine rafales I saw at fairford the other week, they had very light coloured codes. The problem I have is that the syhart decal codes are printed about as dark a grey as the large cruise missiles you have hung on your model. Ive tried to contact syhart through Facebook to get his opinion, but no response as yet..Pretty annoying as the sheet was nearly £12

    Rafale M help

    Hi all I’ve just purchased the 1:48 hobby boss Rafale M and the syhart tiger meet decals. I’m a bit confused as to the colour paint to use on the aircraft as the syhart code letters are very dark. On pics I’ve seen of rafales they are a fairly light grey with almost white code numbers. If I paint it so that the syhart code numbers are lighter than the aircraft, I’ll end up using something like Tamiya German grey.. I’m thinking that the syhart decals have been printed far too dark, and I’ll need to use the kit code numbers.. This also means that most of the stencil markings on the sheet won’t work out either as they are also very dark.. Has anyone else had this issue. ? thanks a lot Phil
  18. I’d really like Hannants to reprint sheet 48056, so I can do an F3 11sqn with the black tail. I’ve asked them, but they said they have no plans to do it. Sadly it’s not included on the new sheets. If anyone’s got a spare 48056 sheet,or just the 11sqn markings from it they’d like to sell, please let me know. Thanks very much
