  1. Most photos I've seen of 80s Buccs seem to have them carrying the slipper tanks, that's how I did mine.
  2. @canberra kid thanks John those pictures are great! I feel it's going to be difficult to get the grey so pale yet still bluish. Even within the green there seem to be colour patches, yet with a model it often just looks messy if I try and recreate this. Any grey suggestions that isn't msg but looks like faded dsg? I can't mix as I use spray cans. My handpainting always looks awful with big brush lines in it so I never handpaint big areas. Nice view of that extra three-bladed aerial on the wing though, I'll need to scratch build that.
  3. Brilliant! Beautiful jet extremely well finished, and those lovely red and white 56 markings always look the part on any RAF aircraft.
  4. Looks like it's standard DSG and RAF green then, though I'm tempted to go with medium sea grey then darken parts of it up or overspray with DSG.
  5. Interesting, does that mean the ones with paler grey like this one just had their dark green painted over the RN all-over grey?
  6. Thank you gents. I've been looking at quite a few TT18 photos and a lot of these Canberras seem to have their grey camo quite pale compared to the DSG of Tornados, Jags, etc. I assume this is down to fading, but I'm wondering whether it may be more realistic to use medium sea grey for this, anyone have any thoughts?
  7. Thanks chaps, that's really helpful info! A B2 might have to be the best way to go.
  8. I have the old Airfix Canberra B.2 and their newer B(I)6 in the stash in 1/48, I would like to build one from Wyton circa 1987. Ideally the TT18 with black and yellow stripes would look good in such a large scale, but I can't find the target pods in aftermarket, nor, perhaps surprisingly any 100 sqn tailfin markings. Are there any available, or is it relatively easy to scratch build the Rushton pods? Which of the Airfix Canberra kits would be best to convert to a TT18? If the pods/conversion prove difficult perhaps I could just do a 100 Sqn B2 instead, I believe they operated some in the 80s, albeit grey underneath not yellow & black. Perhaps a question for @canberra kid?
  9. Outstanding Hunter! Brilliantly painted too, a superb example.
  10. These are excellent, so well finished!
  11. I know it's a way off yet but having just booked a holiday in Suffolk for a few days in July, does anyone know if LN is likely to be shut on Monday 6th July as a day in lieu for 4th July being a Saturday?
