    Do 17z camo

    I've just completed a RLM 70/70/65 paint scheme on the Airfix Dornier using Xtracrylic paints. I know the 70/71 tints didn't sgow much contrast, which is why I abandoned the Humbrol colours I used to use, but my word! These acrylic tints are almost indistinguishable - if they are anything like correct it makes you wonder why rhe Germans bothered doing the camo ar all!

    Best sd.kfz 222

    Which is the best offering of the sd.kfz 222 in 1/35?
  4. Yes the Merlin engined varient is the one I was thinking of - thanks
  5. I'm aware that Revell's Halifax has some wing and egine issues. What's the problems and can they be cured?
  6. Given the Revell/Italeri F3 in 1/72 is hard to come by has the Airfix kit got any merits and is there milage in taking the fuselage sections you need from it to convert a Revell GR1?
  7. l have an unopened Hasagawa RAF Mitchell III that I picked up from a friend's sale recently. What I really wanted was a US version that I could do in natural metal finish. Does anyone know if this RAF boxing can be built as a US aircraft with just a decal sheet being needed, or are different parts required - in which case I'll try to sell/swap to get what I'm after (so I'd rather not break into the packaging)?
  8. Can anyone tell me a good paint match to the red cheat line flash and roundel colour used on French fighter aircraft in the 1960s please?
  9. Thanks for this help guys.
  10. I couldn't follow the link in this conversation but I have a similar question on the Do17z. If the cockpit was rlm66 and elsewhere the aircraft interior was rlm 02, where does the demarcation fall - does cockpit mean the whole of the front end, including the gondola back to the start of the bomb bay?

    Hawker Typhoon

    Which is the better 1/72 scale kit to start with, Airfix or Academy?
  13. So is there a MIG 19 in 72nd scale worth the effort?

    A bit late for WW2 perhaps, but was the F8F-1 version of the Bearcat equipped to carry HVARs?
