  1. Just had a look at the sheet I've got, and there are three sections of No Step wording - white for the F2/F3, Black for the RAF Tornados and Black for the RAFG Tornados. You maybe looking at the Hook symbols in yellow (like the number '2' but with an extended baseline. There are no yellow & red feet symbols on this sheet.
  2. I've got one of the new Airfix Buccaneer S2B kits, and want to make a version from 237OCU as Honington is my nearest RAF base. I can find the decals for 237 on Xtradecal 72307 (Buccaneer S.2 XT287 237 OCU RAF Honington 1972), but can I use this kit? It doesn't matter if I can't because I will use it for another aircraft, and I'll get an S2C as the base for this instead. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks
  3. I'm considering a long-term build at the moment - a 1/32 Tornado F2/3, using the Revell GR1 as a base kit (mainly as the Italeri one is above my budget). Does anyone know of any conversion kits that would allow me to create an F3, noting that the availability of the Heritage one seems to be like finding Bigfoot wearing the proverbial hens teeth? I've seen a couple of good threads of people on here that have converted a 1/32 kit into an F3 - just wanted to do one myself.
  4. Great help again from BM Thanks redcap for your help. Will
  5. Hi, I am looking at the Copper State Models 1/32 Nieuport 23 (RFC, 32005) and am impressed enough to want to buy one. Does anyone have a copy of the instructions / list of paints mentioned in the instructions that can be passed on, so I can buy the paints as well at the same time? Fingers Crossed, and thanks for any help.
  6. I'm struggling with trying to find a reasonable red/orange enamel or acrylic colour for the IAF Surya Kiran aero team. Any thoughts were I should be looking?
  7. Thank you for all your very helpful information. There seems to be little on the internet, and it’s great that BM can fill the gaps. Hope you’ve all had good Christmas breaks.
  8. I'm trying to research Tornado F3's during Operation Deny Flight in the mid-90s, but cannot seem to find much information on units / markings. Does anyone know where I might find (any) information on this? Happy Christmas
  9. There was a Model Alliance sheet - https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/MLO-32701?result-token=ftdYi - 29 Squadron Lightning F3 XP705/L
  10. From what I've got, they look properly done and equal to anything other decal manufacturers produce. From what I can remember, the whole thing cost about £11-12 which included the postage from Russia. The person who produces them has aspirations to produce other 1/48 Tornado F3 silk-screen decal options - worth getting in touch via the website..
  11. I've just ordered these https://uprise-decal.ru/tornadoadv/novyy-tovar for my 1/48 Tonka. It took a few weeks, but they look just right - four 1435 Flt Options, but you will have to use the Revell stencils etc for the rest of the decal fit.

    Paint Racks

    I hadn't thought of either of those options. Thanks for that.

    Paint Racks

    I'm looking for a vertical paint rack that will hold a variety of paint pots - Humbrol tins, Alclad (small / large), Xtracrylix As I appreciate budget suggestions, is there a vertical paint rack that I can get that will accommodate all of these? Currently they're all in a shoebox and I need the bench-space. Thanks.
  14. This may (or may not), help. http://www.fradu-hunters.co.uk/history.html
  15. I didn't expect that detail of information. Thanks for all of that - I can now finish off my research successfully.
