  1. Product code: AZM7653 As well as is it any good. Why does the box cover show a 41 squadron a/c, but when I download instructions, there is no 41 sqn a/c painting instructions.
  2. Supposed to start new thread! Where can I obtain a 1/72 Jaguar canopy? For Revell GR1 but willing to adapt.
  3. Hi all Just been surfing the Hannants site for rear fuselrge serials in white. I have in mind 12 Squadron Buccaneers circa Autumn 1970. If you have the Haynes manual, there is a pic on Pg81. Do any suitable decal sheets exist?
  4. When the Matchbox Sabre was release it was improved by replacing the wings with those from the Airfix F-86D according to one of the modelling magazines, Thoughts anyone? F-86A please Mr Airfix!
  5. The FROG Hunter F.1 was praised to be accurate in shape. Even better than the atrocious Matchbox offering. Have the latter, prefer to have the former.
  6. Thank you Giorgio I'll avoid KP Mig-21s in future. Thankfully the type is proving popular given its shape and distribution. Let's boycott kits that require butt gluing for wings/tailplanes. Giorgio, what's the square addition to vertical tail plane in your pic? Noticeable because it's white

  8. Hi all Is this still available? https://www.scalemodellingnow.com/hn-aircraft-decals-sm-hsgnat Thanks in anticipation
  9. Thanks Simon T the link led to a photo of the Airfix Stug, entering SAINT RAPHAEL, complete with the kits decals though questionable number style.
  10. https://www.airfix.com/uk-en/airfix-vintage-sturmgeschutz-iii-ausf-g-75mm-assault-gun-1-76.html Note, Balkenkreutz on top
  11. Thanks Jack https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18693438-a-sound-like-thunder Do any appear on the top of the tank as depicted on the Airfix box art? I'll use the Trafalgar decals then with the black outer border
  12. Hi all Balkenkreuz from kit or from my decal sheet titled "Trafalgar Models Sheet number 2" these are the same size but with a black outer boarder to the white. The Airfix decals have just a white boarder. Thanks in anticipation
  13. Thanks for this pic Radfan. I should be able to replicate a close matching jet provost using Xtradecal X72291. The daygo orange I'll have to airbrush on. Getting the symmetry on the nose looks tricky as shown by the pic.
  14. Have this courtsey of my local lending library. Thanks Radfan Hunters. So you can point me to pages.
  15. Hi all About to start the ICM Ki-27 Nate. Tips for finishing most welcome because kit only gives Model Master paint 2115, all colours: http://www.modellversium.de/kit/artikel.php?id=3722
  16. No my name is not Ernie. I'll send you my unmade Frog Hornet if your hopes are dashed.
  17. Thanks Work In Progress. Cannot see any discussion of wing tabs. So if the AZ has locating tabs, it's a must for me. Added bonus if it includes markings for Flight Lieutenant R. A. Harvey's 41-Squadron a/c
  18. Just noticed a new release of the AZ de Havilland Hornet F.3. Apparently not the Special Hobby reboxed. According to Hannants My question is which release has lugs for wings/tailplane? I want to depict hornets flown by Flight Lieutenant R. A. Harvey, and a Flight Lieutenant R. A. Harvey 41-Squadron,
  19. Hi all As a nostalgia build I thought I'd make the reissue Stug III from Airfix in 1/76. In Humbrol enamelsl I thought 83 Ochre for the whole tank and pattens of 86 and 160. Is this the best strategy for a Normandy tank? Are there superior alternatives? To make it look authentic, thought I'd also add scale branches as camouflage. Any tips for improving the kit are most welcome. Edit: I see http://www.matadormodels.co.uk/tank_museum/zairfix_stug3_1.htm provide a replacement 10.5 gun to make a Sturmhaubitze. Question is, which was most common at Normandy?
  20. My computer does not like your screen shot The Frog kit's colour guide shows duck egg smthng, Revell 59 is the closest I have
  21. Hi all Really enjoyed making the Airfix Tomahawk. Recently descovered my Frog decals for a Flying tigers P 40B Only I have one side painting instruction and no decscription of colours. I thought of Humbrol 30 dark green and humbrol 29 dark earth for above and Revell 59 duck egg green for below. Can I improve on this in enamel paints? For those of you bewilded or need of revision: Gen. Clair Lee Chennault's American Volunteer Group took delivery of just 90 P 40Bs to fight the Japanese invasion of China. Thanks in anticipation for any links/paint suggestions. M.M.
  22. Looking at the kit's manual: https://downloads.revell.de/Manuals-Modelkits/04728_%23BAU_JUNKERS_JU_88A_1.PDF It seems option 93b will go a long way to depicting a KG30 a/c Still need to find a swastika though, tail looks wrong without it. And kill markings? My one is on order from my LMS, but I'll need to catch a train to purchase it!
  23. Good luck! Might it be a case of sourcing decals from multiple sheets? Any links to this conflict would be interessting
  24. Thanks JWM I've asked this post goes to correct location WWII. Home confinement is leading to internet problems
