  1. Why not just use Halfords white primer in the first place, that's what I do
  2. Currently on YouTube, but almost certainly shouldn't be, so jump in quick if you want to see it
  3. This is indeed my preference. But the other way can work well, is worth a try, and even if you don;t like the result you're no worse off, just a bit more to remove before you repaint Doggy, if you repaint instead, no, whatever you do don't try to scrub the existing paint off with thinners, it will tend to go everywhere. Sand it off gently with 600 grit or finer wet & dry, much easier to control
  4. I have not seen any credible report of a closure plan for the LWH, meaning one based on information from someone who might actually be in a position to know. What is your source for it, and what evidence was provided?
  5. You are thinking of the wrong film. This is the original film and is definitive as a source of accuracy https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0036152/
  6. I prefer doing yellow tips first, as yellow over black is not easy covering, esp if you are brush painting. One easy way to do it without brush marks letting the black show through: Poke a little impression in a piece of plasticene or blu-tack or whatever, fill it with yellow paint, then and dip in each tip to the required depth (about 1.4mm in 1/72) letting it dry with the blade still hanging vertically down before you do the next one
  7. No, that's because the starter kits are limited to a small number of paints so they simplify the painting instructions on those kits. Yellow prop tips, for sure
  8. The way everyone's ignoring this is classic Britmodeller
  9. If you want to do this with Tamiya paints then everything you need to know is in this thread. The underside colour you want is Sky. "Type S" is not a colour but a surface texture, S for Smooth (small particle size, not rough to the touch, but not glossy) For a potted history and debate of the origins of Sky, try this thread as a starter https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/7791-sky-type-s-whats-the-deal/
  10. Why do you think that those are the 50 vehicles concerned?
  11. My view is that it's not a documentary, it's a work of fiction, just like Where Eagles Dare or Kelly's Heroes.
  12. Oh yes please!! These are really helpful, thanks for going to the trouble
  13. It's possible worth a try but the kit is still in stock at Airfix so your best course would surely be to get a spare from them. Ask VERY nicely and they might even let you have a freebie, but they don;t usually charge much for small spares https://support.airfix.com/hc/en-gb/articles/360019394159-Spare-Parts
  14. Yet was never authentic to how that actual airframe served in its military ownership, having never seen a theatre of war, let alone fired a gun in anger. It's hard to see anything it ever did in Canada as historically significant. Complex issues indeed, there is no answer which will suit every interest.
  15. One of the factors which I think people under-estimate is the economics of keeping an aircraft like this going in what is now largely a post air-display world. Once upon a time it was possible to keep an aeroplane like this going from display work, even to earn a living at it. That is vastly harder now and we aren;t going back to the glory days of the '80s and '90s. There have been successive large reductions in UK flying display volume, starting with the large scale reductions in flying from UK RAF basis in the 1990s and 2000s, and then the withdrawal of the USAF-occupied bases fr
