  1. Scalemates have got that wrong. Modeldecal sheet 83 which is now Xtradecal 72211 only has letters which are 48 inches high x 30 inches wide. It does not have any 30 inch high letters. Modeldecal sheet 114 is the one that T-21 needs; it has 30 inch high code letters. Sadly this does not appear to have been re-issued in the Xtradecal range.
  2. The dropper bottles are not an additional range. They are to replace the existing acrylic paint pots which are being phased out - several paint pot colours are already sold out.
  3. They appear to have got the squadron codes wrong e.g. AR on one side of the fuselage and RA on the other and the same error for the other versions
  4. Airfix starter sets come with limited selection of paints and all the colour references shown in the kit are to the paint colours that are provided. If there is no yellow paint provided in the set then there will be no mention of yellow tips to the prop. The propeller should have yellow tips The Airfix policy means that you get some very odd paint references in sets. The Red Arrows Gnat starter set instructions suggest the cockpit floor should be black while the side walls and rear bulkhead should be painted white - there is no grey paint in the set. The Tomahawk starter set would have you paint the interior in 93 Desert Yellow because they don't give you the relevant interior green in the set.
  5. Humbrol 250 is no longer in production. Xtracolour X032 RAF Desert Pink is still available but Hannants are currently out of stock of the Xtracrylix version XA1032.
  6. There is also this paint remover which is supposed to be designed specifically to remove Tamiya paint Carson Paint Killer
  7. LP was the code for Lee-on-Solent
  8. There is Yefim Gordon's book of Soviet/Russian aircraft weaopns - published about 2005 Soviet/Russian Aircraft Weapons: Since World War Two
  9. Alclad make a further satin finish varnish which has a slightly glossier finish than Alclad 312 Semi-Matte. It is Alclad 311 Light Sheen. Is this close to what you want? ALC311 Light Sheen
  10. There were 2 Russian 2-seat Su-30s at the 1997 show coded 52 and 54 blue along with 2 Ukrainian Su-27s coded 48 and 57. The same Ukrainian Su-27s had also been present at the 1996 show.
  11. The Spitfire kits are currently in stock at the Hornby warehouse in Kent and are being despatched to retailers at the moment. They should be in Uk shops in the coming week
  12. What Revell have announced in the newletter is that they are selling Hobby Boss kits via their online shop. Hobby Boss kits/ Revell online shop They are also selling Eduard accessories for their own and Hobby Boss kits Eduard Accessories/Revell online shop All the prices are there e.g. the 1/72 F-5E is €7.99 compared with a UK RRP of £6.25
  13. 6 Squadron had an exchange with Ala 46 of the Spanish Air Force in March 1989. One of the Jaguars, XZ104/EE, was painted in desert pink and photos appeared in the June and July 1989 issues of Aircraft Illustrated. It had full colour red/blue roundels with standard 6 Squadron markings on the intake and fin. The photo in the June issue of the magazine showed it carrying wing fuel tanks in the normal grey/green camouflage.
  14. While Hannnants are selling the re-released Italeri 1/72 Kfir C.2 for £19.99 they are also selling the Italeri Kfir C.2 kit in a Revell box at just £9.99 - this version only has one decal option. Revell (ex-Italeri ) Kfir C.2
