  1. Apologies Greg, moved to where?
  2. You and me both.....it clogged my airbrush and I'm not impressed. Too thick to spray from bottle?
  3. Hi guys, for those who have used it on their tanks, what is the best thinner to use with this?? Thanks
  4. They're convinced US is planning on storing a supply of free fall nuclear bombs like those stashed at various airbases in Europe including Germany. A supply was at Lakenheath and supposedly removed in 2004 I think?
  5. Getting the best is always a problem as like you say penny pinching governments always seek the cheapest deal, although in this case that would actually be Blackhawk with the bonus that we already have a good number of pilots trained to fly it after exchange postings with the US. E7 is currently the best AEW aircraft, but we need 5 as opposed to the 3. Type 26, yes we need more than 8....
  6. If the UK wants to give our armed forces the best option is Blackhawk hands down.... andthe Army wants Blackhawk
  7. Amazon and Ambuscade had Exocet fitted later in 84/5? Making Antelope the only vessel in its class that never carried it.
  8. If I recall correctly, only 5 of the Type 21s had Exocet fitted initially, Antelope was one of the 3 that did not have it in 82
  9. The Tamiya 1/350 Bissie & Tirpitz kits are nice, built Tirpitz a good while back now.

    RAF Dark Earth

    Yep, the Gunze/Mr Hobby colours are very good. They do RAF colour sets for differing time periods, highly recommend them!
  11. Voyager appear to do one in the TES update set?
  12. I believe Voyager does one in its update set for the TES version, but I can't find one for the kit as such which is surprising.
  13. Can anyone tell me if the RFM Challengers come with metal barrels? If not, does anybody do one? I'm thinking of RFM 5062 in particular, I fancy doing it in Berlin Camo. Thanks
  14. Hi guys, could I pick the brains of the experts here please? I'm looking to build a Scimitar of the Blues & Royals in the Falklands in 82. AFV Club do a 1/35 Scimitar CVR(T) and also do a set of tracks - early & late? Can this kit build into a credible model or does it need a lot of aftermarket? In addition which set of tracks would it need? Early or Late? Many thanks in advance.
  15. Its a shame the Lancs used in the movie were all late versions with the twin .50 cal tail turrets and the prop hubs were painted light grey instead of black. The bomb doors were removed and the bomb was a semi rounded over accentuated fitting fixed to bottom of the lancs, a good pic of that appears in Lancaster at War vol 1 which has a small section on them.
  16. Many thanks for that! I'm using migammo as base coat. So no worries.
  17. That looks great. Ok, you've applied a thinned oil wash over an acrylic base coat.....but what happens if you try to remove the excess with white spirit?
  18. I'm thinking more of the need to really seal the acrylics, as that finish and white spirit will not go together well!
  19. I use acrylics and hence oil wash is not ideal, but I suspect Florey type water based washes will do the same?

    Which Beaufort?

    The completed Airfix kits in the review are very impressive indeed! Don't normally do 1/72, but might be tempted by this!
  21. Very nice indeed!! Although this kit is distributed by Italeri, its been suggested its manufactured by Tamiya?
