  1. So if I understand this thread correctly, which isn't guaranteed, the best, or least worst 1/72 Gloster Javelin is 1 Novo Kit (or the Frog) 2 Airfix 3 Heller 4 Mistercraft, ZTS Plastyk or the Chematic And all these kits need aftermarket PE, Resin and/or Decals to bring it up to a good standard. Hopefully I'm close enough.
  2. Thanks for the answers, they've been a help. I think I'll get the Humbrol Clear Orange, less arsing around.
  3. I'm currently building the 1/72 Airfix TSR.2 (its the kit where you can build either the BAC TSR.2 or the anime TSR.2MS but I digress) in the instructions is says that the canopies should be painted with clear orange (Humbrol 1322) but from photo's I've seen they look Gold Coloured. If anyone could give me an answer, it would very helpful. If it is gold I can use some Satin Varnish with a few drops of Humbrol Gold paint.
  4. I've just been reading an Magazine article (Aeroplane April 2021 No 576) about the Nuclear Weapons carried by the V-Force and as per the article it was Blue Steel W100 for high level deployment and then that evolved into Blue Steel W200 for low level deployment. There was also plans to Skybolt, with either the original W-47 warhead or the US W-59 warhead. Of course all of this came to an end when the UK got Polaris in June 1968.
  5. There are usually a couple of Airfix 1/48 Hawk 100 (Canada / Australia) for sale on eBay, mainly around the £20/£25 mark. Any decals required for the kit are usually available in the aftermarket decal range. With my 1/48 ROK Hawk there is about 10 different decal sets to choose from.
  6. Deleted - Please read the pinned post
  7. Thanks for the info, I'll try both and see what works best for me.
  8. I think a recon Jaguar would have a PHIMAT and AN/ALQ-101 on the outer pylons 1200ltr on the inner pylons and a recon pod on the centreline, not sure if the overwing pylons were used to hold AAM Missiles or not. Hope that helps
  9. It's my first time using photoetch on a model and I had a bit of a problem getting it to stick with Tamiya glue (Both Thin and Regular). I ended having to be a bit liberal with Humbrol Precision Poly Cement to get them to stay in position. Is there a glue that works best with Photoetch?
  10. Thanks for the info, I've just brought a set of decals for the kit from Hannants so problem solved. I realised that the decals in the box are probably from 2014/5 and the RAF/FAA versions hadn't been seen yet or built. Phone, thanks for the pic, at least I know what I'm supposed to aim for. I would have thought you would have done the Canadian version, unless the Canadian Govt. are still just going for the F-35A.
  11. Just got my hands on the Kitty Hawk 1/48 F-35B version 2.0 Kit Number KH80102 and whilst it does have the decals for the foreign versions (UK, Korea, Italy, Netherlands & Canada and Australia) the only stencil data is for 5 different US Marine versions. If anyone can point me in the right direction to get the correct stencil data I would be grateful. Thanks
  12. I think I may have an answer to this, which you probably already know, but hey-ho, On my 1/48 Jaguar GR3A there is a option for 2 outer 1200ltr fuel tanks and a Centre line Reconnaissance Pod, which is roughly about the same size and shape as the tanks but with no rear fins.
  13. I recently asked Airfix if they planned to re-release the 1/48 Sea Vixen, they replied that owing to some tooling issues they were hoping for a 2022 release of the new tool 1/48 Sea Vixen not sure what type etc, unless they are planning on using the FAW 2 again
  14. I also got the Tamiya 1/48 F-15C for about £25 which again from the reviews is a very good kit.
