  1. 05 01 2021 Hey all. I just received my 1/48 Buck Rogers Thunderfighter resin model made by Alain Rivard Model Shop (he's on Facebook). It's a good looking model but there's no transparencies for the canopy nor is there even templates to cut clear plastic ( or whatever) to the correct shape and install these. Would anyone be able to advise me what the best material would be good to use to make the cockpit transparencies please and where I might get some from? Thanks in advance Liam
  2. Kushan_Farsight you are a lifesaver. I had just about given up hope. I had thought to try JT but got them confused with JBOT decals. That guy has retired due to ill health. I have emailed an order to JTGraphics to see if they can provide the decals. Thank you so very much Liam
  3. 20 12 2020 Hi all. This is a real reach in the dark but would anyone out there either have the decals for the Buck Rogers fighter or know where I could get them? 1/48 would be the scale. Liam
  4. 29 11 2020 Hi Guys. Thanks for your help. Much appreciated Liam
  5. 26 11 2020 Hi guys, I've been doing a bit of a magazine clear-out and found this: My question is : do decals for these Batman symbol exist?? Here's hoping Liam
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Thanks Mark. That link is not opening for me though. So it's two different aircraft? Liam
  12. 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:
  13. 26 01 2020 Thanks for the advice guys. I suspected I might be okay but just wanted to double-check Liam
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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!!
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 20 02 2019 Love you guys. Really. @Tail-Dragon: Fantastic photos there. The section immediately behind F and the cowl flaps in the drawing....is that the black 'taped' area in your second photo? Rhanks again fellas. (say it like Scooby) Liam
  21. 18 02 2019 Hi Guys. Thanks for the replies. I have Milliput and will use it and perhaps use the plastcard strips to support it but what I need to see is what the actual shape is that I'm trying to make. The photos I see of the real aircraft of this area tend to be blocked by the gear doors or some such and the model threads on this seem to skirt over the actual work stages where the modeller built the area up and then blended the resin and the plastic. @Mark Joyce: re the wing guns: Yup, I'll be chopping that gun off as soon as I get the belly sorted Thanks!
  22. 17 02 2019 Evening all. Been awhile since I last posted here but I have a problem and would like some help please. I'm currently building AmTech's 1/48 P-40 F/L as 'Stud'. I decided to use the resin nose as supplied in the kit and it fit okay but I do have a gap on the bottom which is entirely my fault. he problem is I don't know how to blend the resin to the plastic donor kit, if that makes sense. I have the cowl vents ready to attach but cannot for the life of me figure out how to blend hgem together. I know this is probably very simple involving some plasticard and putt
  23. 21.01.2019 Hi Lads, Thanks for the entertaining replies. I just thought, for the sake of continuity, that it was odd and frustrating that they had that reaction like they'd never heard of a Dalek and yet UNIT was mentioned ( yet, inexplicibly no longer functioning due to lack of funding?). It's frustrating that so much good stuff was done previously yet somehow no longer seems relevant. Even a few well-placed throw-away lines would have sufficed to explain the universal amnesia re: Daleks. I liked some of the season … the Rosa Parks episode was a standout.... but feel there's s
  24. 19 01 2019 Okay, so the new Dr. is in and settled and I thought the New Years' Day episode was kinda good what with the 'steampunk' Dalek. However.... what's with people not knowing wat a Dalek is? We've had a number of planetary-wide Dalek invasions (and Cybermen) yet the first thing the companions say when the Doctor mentions the Dalek is' What's a Dalek?' and then carry on like they've never seen nor heard of one! What did I miss? Liam
