  1. This why I'm asking if anyone can confirm it for this particular airframe
  2. Airfix makes no mention in the painting scheme or on the box art, on a Facebook group I asked the same question and came up with 2 saying yes and 2 saying no
  3. Sorry for digging an old thread up, but did you confirm that this aircraft had the yellow leading edges ? I'm building the same aircraft and have been given mixed information. Many thanks Phil
  4. Sorry Mike, due to a relationship breakdown, I haven't done any modelling since that post. Phil
  5. 1/72 vc-10 ? 1/72 Airbus voyager? 1/72 C-17 ? Phil
  6. Surely it would be 2009 ? Phil
  7. Was just about to say that I'm having the same problem, but sounds like you've got it in hand Mike. Phil
  8. Thanks again for all the wonderful comments guys, I'm really not worthy Phil
  9. If you mix the paint well and have a good tin 2 or 3 should do the trick. Phil
  10. Wow, I'm really blown away by everyone's comments. Thanks guys. To answer John's question, I use a new size 2 brush and apply really thin coats working in opposite directions. I mix the paint to within an inch of its life and try not to overload the brush. The paint is basic Humbrol 11. Phil
  11. Pah a beer mat ? When I was a kid l had to do my modelling on the back of a postage stamp, at the same time a my 4 brothers. I'll get my coat. Phil
  12. Thanks, my modelling space consists of a table in front of the telly. So all my painting is done with a brush. Phil
