  1. Hannants announced that this has had more pre-orders than any other kit in their history!
  2. The colour of the Eduard set is quite a bright blue which I am fairly certain isn't accurate however, it looks nice so I am going with it.

PXL_20220416_192557856 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr The other fun bit has been the canopies, being bulged blown ones they have a mould line along the top of each which is something I have never had to deal with before but it turns out that sanding sticks and Tamiya polishing compound make really quick work of them.

  3. Well house repairs trumped modelling time so progress has been slow but one wing fold is pretty well ready for paint. PXL_20220411_201816097.MP by OutcastJoel, on Flickr The cockpit has been prettied up with the Eduard zoom set and the fuselage buttoned up (photos to follow) I think I will miss the deadline of Thursday but I will have a crack at it.
  4. Nope It isn't even the second best kit on the market as far as I can tell. Sword is generally regarded the best kit on the market and the Revell kit from ~2008 is the next best option. This is still quite nice though and if you can find one for the right price I would thoroughly recommend it.
  5. A fun side note of all of the work on the folds is that I am having to learn how to scribe (right wing after, left wing before). It isn't great but I am happy so far. PXL_20220322_204829520 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr

  7. My model club has a theme of Sub Hunters next month so I am trying to get this popped out in time. PXL_20220311_182611488 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr But as soon as I opened the box a club mate asked if I was going to the wings folded so... PXL_20220311_213521684.MP by OutcastJoel, on Flickr
  8. That 809 NAS scheme is gorgeous.
  9. Please tell me the truck will be used in some sort of 30s Chicago bootlegging diorama!
  10. This: PXL_20220303_132709030.MP by OutcastJoel, on Flickr My dad was a big fan of Jim Clarke and I grew up hearing all of the stories so I am stoked about this kit!
  11. I was intrigued by the choice, does anyone know if Leopard and Le Clerc were considered?
  12. I was thinking that. A pity as they are really nice bits but not exactly the most important outcome of one little man's stupidity.
  13. Another vote for Wildcats from me. They seem to be the easiest way of getting Masterclub without waiting for Telford.
  14. Hello Folks, I have been polishing a car model I am making for a friend and using Tamiya compounds which I have found to work very nicely. I have been applying them using cotton buds (q-tips for those in the States) and some cotton make up removal pads I pinched from my wife. These work well but the pads fall apart very very quickly. So my question is; what do people use for polishing by hand? Are there small foam pads or similar designed for the job like those available for full sized cars?
