  1. Another West Londoner here, which considering I'm from Hayes, isn't too bad! Could be worse, it might have said I was Brummie, a Scouse, Yorkshire or even heaven forbid, Geordie!
  2. There was no question really, just a statement that after all of your corrective work, there wouldn't be much of the original kit left!
  3. Have to say that the SR-71 is one of those aircraft that, to my eye anyway, just looks right from any angle! Enjoying the build...
  4. Not sure that the words 'awesome', 'masterful', 'exceptional', 'fantastic', 'superb', 'work of art', 'incredible', 'impressive', 'brilliant', 'unbelievable', a-ma-zing', 'magnificent', 'mind blowing', actually give credit to the quality of this build! Best I can come up with begins with F, contains two words and the second word ends with L! Is there any Anigrand resin actually left?
  5. What they all sais above I know that the colour scheme of the prototype is disbuted, where did yoiu get your scheme from?
  6. Sorry, only only a vacform 1/72 canopy
  7. Whilst no expert in these matters, I would have thought that as long as the thinners haven;t permiated all the way through the canopy, then sanding back and polishing should eventually provide a clear canopy! What's the worst that can happen, if the canopy is already damaged beyond repair, trying to sanding and polish wont make the situation worse, just confirm that a new canopy is needed! I'll check my spares but I'm pretty certain I don't have one! Tony C
  8. Oh bugger! Kidney, wife, kids or grandkids anyone? Might even consider a lung or even half a liver, as apparently they grow back
  9. Can't see anything in that listing that I don't need (sorry, want ) so yes, it could get expensive!
  10. The canopy should polish up with mico mesh pads and followed up Klear/AK Gauzy or your preferred substitute however, if none of these are available, I have used toothpaste as an alternative to sanding (standard white Colgate if I remember correctly). Hope this helps! Tony C
  11. Seems to make sense but think I'll wait until firm confirmation before leaping in with both feet! I appreciate all the input so far, Much thankings
  12. Hi Mark, What would the postage costs be to the UK? Ta, Tony
  13. Thanks Troy, I have 3 of the above images (don't have the LF Mk.IXe) but certainly appreciate your imput! The image that shows the wrecks of the XVII has me a little confused with regard to the oil tank, as the wreck on the left, seems to show a cap on the shoulder of the tank as well as one on the top, whilst the one on the right is inconclusive! The image of the LF Mk.IXe shows the air intake/filter that I would like to know if similar were fitted to the XVII and F.24? Again, thanks for the imput. Tony
  14. I'm currently undertaking a series build of 6 Spitfires and 1 Seafire but have hit a small stumbling block and wonder if there is anyone can help with the following.. Can anyone confirm the colour of the forward fuel tank as fitted to the Spitfire Mk.Vb during WWII? Would it have been left unpainted, painted Interior Grey/Green or 'rust' coloured, assuming that it was self sealing? Also looking confirmation of whether or not there was an air filter, similar to that fitted to the Merlin in a Mk.IX/XVI, also fitted below the Merlin in the Mk.V and if possible any images of such? Same question regarding both forward tanks for the Seafire Mk.XVII during its Frontline career? Left unpainted, painted Interior Grey/Green or A.N. Other colour, if it was self sealing? Also looking confirmation of whether or not there was an air filter, similar to that fitted to the Merlin in a Mk.IX/XVI, also fitted below the Griffon engine fitted to the Mk.XVII and if possible any images of such? Same question regarding both forward tanks for the Spitfire Mk.24. Left unpainted, painted Interior Grey/Green or A.N. Other colour, if it was self sealing? Also looking confirmation of whether or not there was an air filter, similar to that fitted to the Merlin in a Mk.IX/XVI, also fitted below the Griffon engine fitted to the Mk.24 and if possible any images of such? I've tried Google without any luck (obviously typing the wrong questions in) and despite having approximately 15 books on the Seafire/Spitfire, none seem to show any clear pictures of the these tanks. I would therefore be internally grateful, if anyone in Britmodellerland, is able to provide or point me in the direction of pictures which show these tanks and particularly any which show the area where the filler caps are! Please consider me lain prostrate at the collectives feet! Many thanks, Tony C
