    Comanche RAH-66 (Tamiya)

    I found the kit well made. The open flaps are really tricky to stick and get lined up. Also missiles are a bit fiddly. Overall though I would recommend the kit feels good and solid

    Thanks Whiskey. I did fudge the colour slightly as the as I couldn't find a good colour match. Appreciate your comments. Ian
  3. Hi, This has taken ages and has been really fiddly - bits keep dropping off! I'm pleased with the result although the finish could be better

    USS Theodore Roosevelt CVN 71

    Nice model. Love all the detail and action on the deck. Really interesting to look at.

    Wow that is great. You should be realy proud. I agree that ships are hard masts are tricky and I have not had your success with getting things symetrical. my masts always lean and then break when I try and sort them. I'm making a helicopter at the moment - loads easier than boats!! But I won't give up on them as I really love al things maritime

    Humbrol satin enamel paint is very thin?

    Hi, I have found the coverage of the Revell enamel very good. The fuselage below has three coats of Revell SM363and I am feeling pleased wth it
  9. Fantastic - the detailon the inside is rally impressive. I enjoyed looking at the pics
  10. Nice looking car :-)

    Thanks for this. I have decided to use Revell SM363 instead - it's a slightly different shade but it does have much better coverage. I'm very reassured that the consensus seems to be that it is the quality of the paint and not my competence!!

    Ok feel much better - it is hu163 enamal that finally prompted me t write this post. I guess it's patience and perserverence that is required. Ian
  13. Hi. I am brush painting humbrol satin paints and despite mixing them endlessly they always seem very grainy needing lots of coats. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?
  14. Here is my second model. It isn't brilliant and has a number of pieces missing (lost in the carpet - dissolved by the glue!!). I have learnt lots doing this model: useful thngs like not painting parts where they are going to be glued as the adhesive simply dissolves the paint and it is necessary t create a bit of a sticky mess with paint and glue to get stuff to stick. I painted everything before I started construction. I've noted that others only pain what they have to before sticking things together and that this contributes to the good finishes I see on here. So with apologies to all the experts on this forum. Here is my poor effort - lets call it a training ship (TS Belfast :-))
