  1. @Troy Smith one last question. Would a coat of Vallejo Model Air react poorly over a coat of Vallejo Model Color?
  2. Thanks @Troy Smith. I'll direct the question above to Phantom. If you can tag someone else that can help, it'd be appreciated.
  3. Well that's a can of worms isn't it? Does Model Air take longer to dry? Is it too thin and needs several coats? Once the first coat is dry to the touch, would a new coat ruin the first one/remove the paint? Guess I'll get the Model Air US. Navy paint set if those can be brushed.
  4. Hello guys, Which Vallejo Model Color paints would be needed for an F4U-1A Corsair (bubble top)? I'm looking for Model Color because they're water based, just like Revell Aqua. So far, these are the paint names and codes in Model Colour I've been able to find: 70951 Matt White, 70898 Dark Sea Blue, and 70903 American Blue. I'm not sure about 70903, it should be Intermediate Blue, but that one is only available as a Model Air colour (71299). Are these paints correct? P.D: I need Model Colour because I brush paint. Thanks!
  5. Remember that the Airfix kit is B. For a C, Fujimi may be your only choice. And then you'll have to source the antenna hump on the fuselage.
  6. After building (but not getting bored of) lots of Bf 109s and Fw 190s, I decided to pick this 1:32 Spitfire Mk.IIa from Revell. I read about its inaccuracies, but they don't detract the fact that the aircraft will, most likely, look like a Spitfire. I'm aiming for a start past December 6 of this year.
  7. I like the option to have the flaps extended. They make the aircraft look cooler.
  8. I found this from the RAF's archives: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.rafmuseum.org.uk/documents/collections/78-AF-954-Bf-110G.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwjsx8OF77j7AhV3q5UCHVc2ACMQFnoECCkQAQ&usg=AOvVaw1dsHXLQZqZv3r0dPPHtbRM It's very interesting. It says the aircraft I posted was originally in a mottled camouflage of blue-grey uppers with light blue undersides and coded, with black letters, OL. Surrendered in May 1945 at Grove, Denmark. It was restored in 1976 with an original nightfighter camouflage and given the IRL codes D5+RL.
  9. Assuming this aircraft was brought to Hendon as is from the many aircraft captured after WW2, D5+RL's camouflage consists of RLM 76 surfaces with RLM 75 squiggles (Took this photo and recorded a short video of the plane in 2019 when I was in London).
  10. There's a dedicated thread in the WW2 aircraft section mentioning RLM 83 could have been a blue colour instead of green. I think @Jochen Barett and @Troy Smith may be of better help than me.
  11. Found this link for a Pinterest photo of what I assume is the aircraft your dad's making. Hope it helps. https://www.pinterest.se/pin/178736678947869084/
  12. Is this like the 21st Century Toys models but without camouflage and decals?
  13. I'll be careful then. Last option if the test decal I use ends up sticking solid to my test mule's surface will be to make masks and paint.
