    Best way to cut FW-190 nose?

    Hey, I have the Hasegawa 1/32 FW190 D-9 with the Aires full detail set which tells me I have to cut open the nose part of the plane. I'm fairly new to modelling so was just wondering what the easiest way would be to cut open the nose neatly?

    Vallejo Model Color won't thin

    Okay I'll have a look, just a pity they don't do the model air in orange red!

    Vallejo Model Color won't thin

    Hi guys, I have the 1/48 Ta 152 and would really like to paint it in the orange red colour, however I can only get the orange red in Model Color rather than Model Air. No matter how much I try to thin it it will not come out of my airbrush, only a few specks will come out, I'm using the Vallejo thinner so what am I doing wrong? Is there any other paint brands that do orange red? Thanks

    Hasegawa 1/32 FW190 JV44 stripes

    I have the Hasegawa FW190 JV44 kit and am wondering what the stripe size should be on the bottom of the plane. The kit is 1/32 by the way Thanks!

    Vallejo Orange red alternative?

    Anyone know who else does orange red other than Vallejo? Trying to thin their model color but I can't get it to work properly, it's not my airbrush as model air and thinned Tamiya paint come out fine

    1/48 Hasegawa Typhoon camo template?

    Hi guys, I know you can buy a mask for it but was wondering if there were any sites that have a Typhoon camouflage template I can print out and stick on my model? I've seen Spitfire ones but no other planes

    JV44 stripe size?

    Hey, Bought the Tamiya 1/48 FW190D-9 JV44 with the red and white bottom. I've painted the bottom white and am now masking the stripe bits however I don't know what size masking tape I'm supposed to use, it doesn't say in the instructions and on various sites they all seem to be a different size depending on who built them. On eBay the sizes I've wrote down are 2mm, 3mm, 5mm, would any of these the correct size?

    Best way to paint propeller nose? (see link)

    Nah not assembled yet and okay I'll try that
  13. Hi guys, New to modelling etc, I have a Tamiya FW-190D-9 JV44 and am not sure on the best way to paint the propeller nose, I've painted it black as per instructions but the end of the nose is yellow and am not sure how to mask it properly or if there's an easier way to do it. Sorry if it's a really simple thing to do but I'm not entirely sure on it! http://www.tamiya.com/english/products/61081focke_jv44/focke.htm As you can see the propeller nose is yellow at the end

    Paint underside first or last?

    Hi, Have the Eduard JV44 FW-190D-9/11 and have built both and will paint them soon. Is it easier to paint/airbrush the underside first or the top of the plane?
  15. Hello, I have these stands https://www.airfix.com/uk-en/aircraft-display-stand-assortment-1-72.html I plan on putting my 1/48 Spitfire and FW190 on stands but am not sure about the best way to make a neat cut? On the Matchbox kits they used to have a square on the fuselage that you could just cut open for the stand but for some reason modern kits don't seem to have the option anymore!
