  1. Slow progress, but progression nonetheless Engine and prop done. There's 40 lengths of wire in that engine. N1K1-5 by Jazzy Jase, on Flickr Painted with Alclad, Tamiya acrylics and Vallejo Model Color. Weathered with Mig pigments and potions. N1K1-5 by Jazzy Jase, on Flickr
  2. I had the same problem as you. Hadn't received one for ages. Signed up again using a different email address and now I get it every week.
  3. Thanks chaps, checking your suggestions out on Amazon I had to laugh at some of the prices the sellers are asking for "as new" copies... Second hand for me! :-)
  4. Hi Britmodellers, Looking for recommendations on which Mosquito book to read. Not from a modelling or technical perspective but more from an aircrew/operational/true account point of view. Cheers, Jason
  5. Hi Britmodellers, It's been around 10 months since I last did any modelling. I've been suffering from a severe case of modellers block and also some personal issues. Trying to get mojo back has been difficult. My (very understanding) wife actually came up with the solution when she suggested moving my modelling desk from the garage to the dining room for a while. I didn't want to crack-on with the P-51 I've been tinkering with, fearing being overwhelmed by all the aftermarket goodies I have intended for it, so I decided to build this old N1K1 I had in the stash, pretty much OOB. I really like the artwork on the box, so I'm going to be reasonably restrained with the weathering; None of the massive paint chips you normally see on these models. N1K1-1 by Jazzy Jase, on Flickr I've finished the small and simple cockpit. Enhanced with some lead wire behind the instrument panel and seat belts made from a leftover Coke can. N1K1-2 by Jazzy Jase, on Flickr I airbrushed Tamiya acrylics, and hand-painted the details with Vallejo Model Colors. I'm not concerned about their accuracy. Having fun is the name of the game with this one. N1K1-3 by Jazzy Jase, on Flickr Weathering consisted of Mig filters and finally some Mig pigments to dirty it up a subtly.

  6. I don't think you mean spot metering. The metering mode changes how the camera evaluates for exposure. You might have more luck switching to a single focus point (the centre one is usually the most accurate). Make sure the auto focus is set to continuous and not one-shot.
  7. Had a flight in a Wessex as a young Air Cadet. Sitting opposite the door, as it took off it banked right and left me staring at the ground hoping I didn't fall out. Loads of low-level flying and very interesting to be able to watch the pilots feet above you. Won't forget that one.
  8. Mine arrived today. Have to say, the kit looks amazing. Slight problem with the Brassin seat though. Hopefully Eduard will send a replacement... Eduard 1/48 Spitfire IXc Late by Jazzy Jase, on Flickr Eduard 1/48 Spitfire IXc Late by Jazzy Jase, on Flickr
  9. I've flown on the Emirates A380's 4 or 5 times now and it's a great aircraft, but I have to say I find that BA livery very boring.
  10. Come to think of it, I'm sure the mixes I have are from Ad Astra masks too so your theory on the blue could very well be correct.
  11. Interestingly, the mixes I posted differ from the mixes Troy posted so you may want to try both out and see which you prefer.
  12. I can't remember where I got this from but I've got these Tamiya mixes saved in my references. Dull Roundel Red : 75% Flat Red (XF-7), 25% Red Brown (XF-64) Roundel Blue : 75% Flat Blue (XF-8), 25% Flat Black (XF-1) Roundel Yellow : 95% Flat Yellow (XF-3), 5% Flat Red (XF-7)
  13. Sorry for sounding dumb but is the Sutton the correct harness for a WWII machine?
