  1. 06 05 2020 @ stever I think that was the point of the conversation. If you marry the wings, tailplane and other bits of the Fury to the Tempest you get either a Mk. II or a mark VI. I'm not sure which. Was hoping for clarification. Thanks though
  2. 06 05 2020 Hi everybody, This is a bit of a long shot but I saw or read somewhere here in a different conversation that it was possible to convert a 1/48 Typhoon into a Tempest using a fair amount of the Hobbycraft Fury (same wings I think??). I think I saw this on Britmodeller. Can anyone point me in the direction of that topic or to where someone might have attempted it? I'm not sure what mark of Tempest they were trying to make but it sounded interesting. Thanks in advance Liam
  3. 02 05 2020 Thank you all for your replies. @Buz I've never seen those photos before. The top one is amazing. Love seeing the tread pattern on the tyres. So, it's the American colours then? Dark Earth and Middle Stone on top but should I use the Neutral Gray or Azure Blue then? I understand that there's a blue filter on the top photo but would a blue filter change the tone of Neutral Gray to make it look so blue? Liam
  4. 30 04 2020 Thanks Graham. It's this one: https://modelingmadness.com/review/allies/us/cleaverp40f.htm So, are you saying that I should go with the Dark Earth and Sand on top and Azure blue underneath? Liam
  5. 30 04 2020 'Morning campers! I'm currently building the AMT/Ertl 1/48 P-40F Warhawk. I plan to use a combination of Aeromaster Decals 48-219 and Superscale 48-844 to make White 10 'Sweet Stuff' of 69th Fighter Squadron, 57th Fighter Group, 9th AirForce Western Desert 1943. So, my query revolves around the actual colours to use … I know - a potential Pandora's box. Both Aeromaster and Superscale advise that the colours to use are Dark Earth and Sand on top and Azure blue underneath. So far so good. However, on the reverse side of the colour call-out page there's a Colour note that references the US Desert Camouflage p-40's. It states that the aircraft on the sheet did not wear the standard RAF Desert camouflage scheme of Mid-stone ( I assume this is Sand), Dark Earth and Azure blue but instead wore US Sand (616) and Dark Earth (30118) on top and US Neutral Gray (ANA 43) which "photographs much like Azure blue." They also state that "this is our opinion" and that they have no way to confirm or deny this. I would think that given that the aircraft were made in USA, painted in USA for USA squadrons in the Desert that I should therefore use the American colour call-outs. The colour 'tones' are very different so what do y'all think? American or British? Thanks in advance Liam
  6. Thanks Mark. That link is not opening for me though. So it's two different aircraft? Liam
  7. 23 03 2020 Hi Everyone I have a question regarding the Aeromaster sheet for this plane. I'm using Aero Master Decals sheet Desert Hawks part II 48-219 to make White 10 - 4596. So far, so good. However, I have Histoire and Collections Curtiss P-40 Planes and Pilots from 1939 to 1945 and on page 36 there's a profile of White 10 and it has 'Sweet Stuff' written above the exhaust stack and the number '4' in the serial number is covered by the fin flag. Soooo, the title 'Sweet Stuff' is not included on the decal sheet. Pictures can be seen here: http://raf-112-squadron.org/57th_fg.html And again, differences....red coloured surround on the Stars and Bars for example and also look at the hub covers here: https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=56514.0 (scroll down a bit) So the question is, if I want to make 'Sweet Stuff' as in the sas1946 web-site photos with title and hub cover markings, is there a sheet that does these markings in 1/48?? Thanks in advance Liam
  8. 26 01 2020 Thanks for the advice guys. I suspected I might be okay but just wanted to double-check Liam
  9. 25 01 2020 Hi All Just a quickie... in 1/48 can you use the masks meant for the p-40E on a P-40F? Can't seem to get the F masks anymore but loads of E masks out there. Cheer in advance Liam
  10. 18 01 2020 Hi all: Just a quick question: I was in local hobby shop and I was browsing through the Airfix selection and, being of a certain advanced age, I couldn't remember which boxings were the new tools released in last few years an which were the older boxings from before Hornby. Is there anywhere where there exists a list of all the Airfix new tool kits? Thanks in advance Liam
  11. 18 01 2020 Hey all, I have to say it: Normally I would look to see the positives in the worst but that last episode of Dr. Who in the 'Pleasure Dome' has to be one of the worst they've made using any of the Doctors. It tried really hard to be exciting and logical. And Jodie was excellent but now seems to be limited to running around excitedly, being initially puzzled, then figuring stuff out, more running around and then a message delivered with a sledgehammer. They've got to do better. Give the crew better scripts, better directors and please God!!! better editors please!! Liam
  12. 12 09 2019 Hi All, I hope this is in the right forum but I was looking for tips on how to paint an Iron Man model, specifically the red. I was wondering what shade or red would be accurate for the armour and how would you get that nice metallic sheen? I would prefer to brush paint this and not airbrush it if at all possible but I would consider aerosols. Can anyone help please? Thanks in advance Liam
  13. 03 07 2019 @Mark Joyce Mark, is it only one (outboard) machine gun removed from each wing? Some sources suggest that that there was only one gun left on each wing. I can't find anything definitive on it. Kit is progressing. Just finished the nose/belly. Moving on to the rest of it. Thanks in advance Liam
  14. 15 04 2019 And the question is : how do you use the masking stickers?? Asking for a friend who loves making these complicated beasts. I have never made an F1 car and I have never seen 'masking stickers' before. Any advice would be greatly appreciated Liam
