  1. Thanks Tony that would be great I'll PM you.
  2. I agree with you they look sort of gangly on the ground if that makes sense. As for the jet exhaust I always paint the inside of them a very light biege, which I think captures the actual colour, unfortunately the picture wasn't taken in very good light so you can't see it, but thank you for your comment.
  3. Thank you, I like to display my aircraft flying so yes I do make the stands myself. Just a piece of MSG and some 2mms brass rod.
  4. Thank you. First time I've done rigging, it was frustrating until somebody on here suggested buying gel superglue and a setting aerosol spray. Thank you.
  5. Thank you, as Lewis95 states the emblem is not included in the kit, but to be honest I've never seen any maker include. I am toying with the idea of printing my own decals in which case the few German aircraft I have will gain them. Thank you.
  6. Hello (Again) Everybody, this is my F35A, another gift ( I had a good birthday this year ) and this one was much closer to my normal taste. This was going to be a quick bash together and paint as a distraction from the intricacies of the Arado. I tried everywhere I knew to obtain paint masks for the RAM panels but to know avail. I decided that painting them without masks was beyond my patience and skill levels, so I have completed this one as 'representative' as an operational version. My apologies to the purists out there. Built straight out of the box and painted with Tamiya acrylics.
  7. Hi Everybody, this is my Arado 196B bought for me as a gift, not the subject matter I would have chosen and certainly not the normal scale I build. But I have to say it was a thoroughly enjoyable build and went together like a dream. The only difficulty I had was with the glazing, made a complete mess of the sliding canopy, that was purely down to my own inexperience and lack of skill, I now know how I would have done it differently. Built straight out of the box the only addition being some E-Z line for the rigging and painted entirely with Tamiya acrylics. As I said not my normal p
  8. Thanks for that Paul, I've seen sets of CA glue and accelerator on line. I'll give that a go.
  9. Hi All, I'm just about to start rigging a 1/32 Arado 196B. Can anybody body tell me what is the best .CA / Superglue is for getting a quick grab. I have the correct E-Z line and have tested the cheap Superglue I have but it seems to take ages to set. I live in the UK so places in this country would be good. Thanks in advance.
  10. Yes it is, on most of the builds the model will sit in the position you set it but on larger models I use a small drop of .CA to keep it secure. Previously I used to set a small piece of 3mms tube into the model with the same internal diameter as the rod, but matching the rod to the tube became very hit and miss.
  11. Hi Everybody, this is my second lockdown build and another Russian jet. A very enjoyable build which went together well with, the exception of the undercarriage doors, I suppose with the wheels down all they have to do is represent the doors. Build them in the closed position and they are not even close. Built straight out of the box and painted with Tamiya acrylics. I would be the first to admit this is not one of my better builds, so comments and crit
  12. Welcome back to modelling, that's exactly how I got hooked back into the hobby when one of my kids gave me a model of the Titanic for my 60th. I was amazed at how far modelling and equipment have advanced, five years on and my shelves are full of completed models and my bank balance is seriously depleted . Have fun !!!
  13. Excellent build, I have built a few but really want to do one in winter camouflage.
