  1. Looks great - hard to believe what it has been through .. . What kit is the F86H ?
  2. A really unusual subject and so well done, brilliant. Wonder if you might have put it on "water" like ship modellers do-- made from silicone I think
  3. Great looking Seastar.. I have one ready to start but I have never used PE before can you tell me how you got on with it and what you used to stick it on with. Going to use Model Master International orange FS12197 and Xtracolour FS17875 for the white.
  4. Academy 1/72nd. McDonnell Banshee. Only issues were with the basic kit seat and the fit if the tanks to the wing tips Brush painted - Upper surfaces with Xtracrylix FS16440 and lower surfaces Humbrol Acrylic white.
  5. Thank you for your comments on metalcote.. I used Humbrol 11 acrylic, brush painted, on a USAF Airfix Sabre and was quite pleased with that result. {Posted January 2018}.
  6. Nice collection of Sabres. I tried Humbrol Metalcote from a tinlet but could not get it to polish up. Did you use the spray can ? What do you think of metalcote?
  7. Thank you very much for replies.
  8. Can the Sword FJ3 FURY be painted in the USN grey and white scheme using the kit decals ?
  9. Looks great - what paint and colours did you use. Can you give brief detail of the kit problems please. (I've been looking at the Sword AEW Avenger}
  10. Thank you all for a lot of good information. It seems that the simple answer is that Sword have got the colours wrong.
  11. Thank you all for replies - great photograph of 056 on the carrier deck. I would like to build the kit in the "Medium and Light grey" scheme as in the sword kit just wanted references for these colours and if possible find pics/info of the actual aircraft in this scheme.
  12. Thank you for your prompt reply. The FS 16099 and 14424 scheme is not what Sword are showing on their artwork. Have a look at the link below. http://swordmodels.cz/en/172/134-sw72115-tbm-3w-guppy-laeronavalekonmarine.html
