  1. I'm investigating the possibility of modelling a still from the 1969 film 'Marooned'. The scene is of the fictitious X-RV lifting body being lowered on to the back of flat bed truck at Cape Canaveral. I've managed to source base kits for the X-RV lifting body and the CH-3C helicopter, the last piece of the jigsaw is the flat bed truck. Any ideas? https://imgur.com/bcd42QN Thanks
  2. I'm thinking of doing a model of Al Worden's deep space EVA on the return trip of Apollo 15. Does anyone know of any articles that anyone has produced on modelling this subject? Thanks.
  3. Thanks everyone. It looks like the Revell kit of the CH-3C is going to be my best bet. I'll keep an eye on FleaBay.
  4. Welcome from yet another recent returnee to modelling. My experience so far is of a very friendly, very knowledgeable bunch of folks on a well-moderated forum.
  5. Thanks Just found this http://www.impdb.org/index.php?title=Marooned_(1969). They name is as a Sikorsky CH-3C c/n 61527 s/n 64-14224 of the USAF. Reading some more it looks as though the HH-53 and CH-3C were essentially the same aircraft. Thanks for the help.
  6. I'm thinking about producing a model of the X-RV lifting body from the film Marooned. One option is to depict suspended from the helicopter which in the film transports it to Cape Canaveral. (see attached picture). But what type of helicopter is it? It looks a bit like a Sikorsky CH-53, but of course I could be VERY wrong. https://photos.app.goo.gl/pRQxnWoasmYHmuXm9 Thanks

  8. Thanks. Looks like there are at least two different variants of the Mi-8 used. Both are available in 1/144 and 1/72 scale. Now where to find a small scale model of the Soyuz descent stage?
  9. Can anyone help me with my search for details of typical paint job/markings for the Mi-8 helicopters used in the recovery teams used in Soyuz landings? Thanks
  10. Thanks I've just put in an order for 5 sheets each of white and clear and for some Microscale decal film.
  11. I'm want to get some clear and white inkjet decal paper and a compatible fixative/sealer to keep the ink waterproof. The two makes of paper and sealer which seem to come up tops in side by side reviews seem to be those produced by Testors and by Papilio. My frustration comes because neither is readily available in the UK. Are there any side by side comparisons of decal papers and/or sealers that are available in the UK?
  12. It looks as though your budget is considerably larger than mine! I bought a Switzer A081-069 compressor and two airbrush kit from eBay. Under £90 delivered. I know some people will doubtless say I should have spent more, but my total budget was £100 max, so it's the best I could afford.
  13. I'm just starting down the long and winding road that is airbrush painting. I've got my first airbrush and compressor and will now spend a few evenings practicing with it before subjecting any models to my doubtless ineptitude. I see from various YouTube videos that some people spray small parts holding them on bottom-weighted wooden sticks with a crocodile clip on the top. I presume the shafts are just kebab skewers and the clips just cheap clips one can buy on eBay. Is this correct? What is the best method for constructing a simple weighted base to hold the stick? Thanks
  14. I've been using a set of modelling knives I bought at Lidl. The supplied blades are about to run out. Before I just buy a randoms set of blades from the internet, I was wondering, "what type and make of blades do people on britmodeller buy?"
  15. Thanks I'll wait for the EE kit to come out and see what price it is.
