  1. There's some great photos there, thanks for posting Cheers Dennis
  2. I don't know about modelling supplies but I got some from eBay, it's used for fly fishing, I wanted self adhesive stuff https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FLY-TYING-VENIARD-ADHESIVE-LEAD-FOIL-SHEET/351931304707?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 Cheers Dennis
  3. I am not an expert but I would also go with Sovereign Colourcoats, I used it on several of my builds in combination with some Xtracolor paints the Xtracolor was used because it gave me a nice gloss finish the Colourcoats was just as good but satin For the D520 I used ACF05 Gris Bleu Fonce, ACF07 Kaki, ACF04 Chocolat and for the undersides ACF09 Gris Blue Clair. For the MS406 I used Xtracolor X125 (Intermediate blue) for the Gris Blue Fonce, the green was ACF07 Kaki, and the brown ACF04 Chocolat, for the undersides Gris Blue Clair I used Xtracolor X127 FS145414. The Bloch 152 was finished with X127 for the Gris Blue Clair, the green was again ACF07 Kaki, the brown ACF04 Chocolat and the Gris Blue Fonce Xtracolor X125. The builds were 1/32 scale and I used Blu Tac sausages and paper masks to give a slight feathered edge between the colours. Hope this helps Cheers Dennis
  4. Great job, one day I hope to build a Halifax in 1/48 if another manufacturer fetches one out, my two FM ones were sold a long time ago so I can only admire your skill and perseverance. Hope to see it at Telford. Cheers Dennis
  5. Most impressive, I tend to get a bit dissatisfied with aerial wires, I prefer the positive attachment method as well and that looks good. In fact the whole model looks good hope my "one day" Swordfish looks as good. Cheers Dennis
  6. AMT 11 and AMT 12 are dark, here is some photos of the French NN Yak3 being stripped back to the original paint, the usual cautions about photos and lighting apply but you can see how dark the colours are. Cheers Dennis
  7. Ahh Spitfires, just re read Edgar's notes and you guys are spot on, the area behind the pilots seat was not counted as cockpit so was silver, great photos. Cheers Dennis
  8. Great job, love the mix of real photo and model photos, really convincing. Cheers Dennis
  9. Edgar's notes on the new 1/32 scale Revell Spitfire, AM is your friend, or try to find the Revell/hasegawa kit with the new wings. Cheers Dennis
  10. That's looking good, that good in fact that I might be tempted to buy another ZM kit, the Mustang IV looks quite tasty. Cheers Dennis
  11. This is encouraging as I have one in these in the stash but the rigging scares me to death, so its nice to see how to do it. Cheers Dennis
  12. Absolutely amazing, what a fine build Cheers Dennis
  13. Looks fantastic, makes my Hasegawa one look a bit bare Cheers Dennis
  14. It's great paint, I used it on a yellowing bath panel and it worked really well, and is really tough. Cheers Dennis
