    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.
  3. This may (or may not), help. http://www.fradu-hunters.co.uk/history.html
  4. I didn't expect that detail of information. Thanks for all of that - I can now finish off my research successfully.
  5. I'm researching a P26 build (with a hope to follow it up with a P12), and was wondering if anyone knew what paint to use for the Yellow / Blue schemes? I've sort of a zeroed in on RLM04 for the Yellow, but have not managed to decide what the right blue is. Is there anyone who can help me?
  6. Thanks for all of your help - I had thought that I'd want to steer clear of batteries, this has confirmed it. Probably going to be white lights, my disco days are long gone.....
  7. I've managed to get hold of a Detolf cabinet, and am starting to fill it up with old models that I'm gradually refurbishing. Has anyone got any suggestions about LED (or other) lighting options that I could use?
  8. Thanks for the advice, and the great pictures. I may do as advised and build the T55 as a Saudi or Kuwaiti one, and find a Sword T5 for the RAF version.
  9. I've managed to find a Matchbox Lightning T55 Lightning, and want to build/paint it up as a RAF T5, I know that I've got to find a pair of straight wings, but is there anything else? And is there a step by step conversion I can follow?
  10. Thanks for all your suggestions; I may have to start haunting model shows for hints, sniffs of P1a heaven.
  11. I might find myself trying to convert an existing kit..... I'd love one of the three mentioned, but they're like hens teeth clamped around unicorn eggs. Thanks for the help.
  12. I can see lots of different ideas for those, who like me, want a Lightning P1A to build. I've seen excellent conversions for large scale (i.e >1:72) Lightnings, and obv the Whirlykit option in resin at 1:72, though I'd have to save up for that one. For the benefit of the uninitiated (i.e me), what are the options if you want to model the P1A in 1:72 - I'm quite happy to hack up a base kit, just that I'm not sure what I need to do then..
  13. Not my content, but Thunder & Lightings have a cockpit section of XG331 in 1997. It might give an indication of previous paintwork. http://www.thunder-and-lightnings.co.uk/lightning/survivor.php?id=540
  14. These are both excellent answers; in fact the X72-092 option hadn't twigged. I've emailed Hannants this morning, and they've said that in addition to all of this, they're adding a reprint of X72065 to their website - should be online in a month or so. Thanks for both your answers.
