  1. Nice one Steve, I have plans for another too. All good mate
  2. Fair comment Dick, as my skills improve I guess the next level will be incorporating the decals more into the weathering process. I would actually describe my finishes as more artistic than necessarily uber accurate. It’s how I like to build and present them though.
  3. Thanks . If I can save money and do it myself I will. To be honest though I used plastic card to replace those details I lost. A little time consuming but relatively basic skills and rewarding.
  4. Thank you. I used the kit parts, fair to say some sanding was required! Rewarding though and at least the plastic is soft.
  5. Thanks guys, comments really appreciated. It was a fun kit to build and very relaxing after an Eduard P51, which is a cracking kit too but requires a lot more attention.
  6. Airfix 1/48 Export Sea Fury built in Iraqi colors. A full build article is in Scale Modelling Now online magazine. This was a fun build of a great looking machine.
  7. It’s all true Mike. This is an expensive kit, but worth it. Everyone should get to build one. If it was £30 I would build several more. Unlikely to happen though.
  8. Thanks Nikola, it’s an exceptional kit, you will love it
  9. Evening everyone. I am pleased to share my latest work, Tamiya’s awesome P38 as a captured bird in Italian service. This is an absolute gem of a kit. I had so much enjoyment while putting her together. A few photos of the completed article. The model will feature shortly in a large build article for #ScaleModellingNow online magazine. Any comments welcomed
  10. I replenished my go to stock of H58 interior green from an online store yesterday. Got the new formula stuff. Both the bottle top and paint inside much more closely resemble Tamiya XF4 yellow green and bear absolutely no relation to the old H58. Several hundred shades lighter. Had I seen it in a shop I wouldn’t have bought it (2 actually!). Just a word of warning and can anyone recommend a good substitute interior green!
  11. Thanks jhutchi and sat69, I really appreciate both of your kind words
  12. Thanks for the info Troy, I’m keeping note of all the links. Hopefully if Eduard bring out a Mk1 the Tammy Spit will come down in price. I can’t justify £30 for a small 1/48 kit either, no matter how good. I don’t have an issue with their kit decals but I happened to have some spare Eduard Cartograph roundels that we’re just gorgeous, so I used those. The codes and serials are originals and I painted the walkways. I found that Tamiya decals are fine so long as you use the hottest water you can stand then they soften beautifully, just need to be careful though that you d
  13. That’s really useful and worth saving. Cheers Troy
