  1. Hi.. it may be hard to obtain in the UK, but the Platz 1/72 kit of the F-15 is JSD/AF specific and is the best fitting F-15 out there.I've built them all and I really liked the Platz offering. Some may think the paneling is a bit heavy but it "disappears" quickly after some paint and primer and aids in any weathering work, minimal that may be on an F-15. https://finescale.com/product-info/kit-reviews/2017/01/platz-f-15j-eagle-j-msip

    HI guys...I know that we really don't have any final information,. but what is the general view of the Telford show being held this year? I'm in the U.S. so its a long reach with some planning required. I'm just trying to get some rough idea of the chances its going to go on as scheduled.
  3. BTW, Tamiya Clear yellow Tint, sprayed inside the canopy gives you something that looks Like the gold tint. Spray It lightly in coats or mix it with some Future.
  4. Morning Gents..I believe extracolor did the Free Kuwaiti colors. I built up the Kuwaiti A-4 as such and it is quite pleasing.
  5. Gents..as promised, the link to French Air Force official colors. https://ereverra.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/ere_copie_couleurs_reference_def_fr.pdf in French of course.
  6. Hi guys..French built aircraft painted in French colors. I've got a link somewhere to the equivalent standard. Easy enough to google it. We've seen these colors before on Jaguars and other Mirages.
  7. Hi ..I was not aware DreamModel did a Dauphin...
  8. Gents. ..title says in all. I do know already about the tail rotor. I'm talking 1/72 DreamModel here.
  9. Hi gents..I might be giving Telford a go...Ive heard so much that its the number one item on my bucket list. A couple of quick questions...since rooms are sold out in Telford is staying i Birmingham a good option. It looks like a short ride on the weekends.? What rail line do you recommend? there appears to be several to choose from? How far the railroad station i the exhibit centre? Is it walkable? Can I do the show in one day and enjoy it or should I plan both days?
  10. Gents...your Red Arrows are now just down the road from me at Newburgh/Stewart AP in New York. I'll be attending the show on this Saturday. Being a bit of an enthusiast I was wondering if anyone could comment on just how they managed to arrive here. Do they carry extra fuel tanks on the Atlantic crossing? Are they modified for mid-air refueling on the crossing? What would their route be and where would they stop to refuel? I believe the range of the Hawk is roughly 500 miles for starters.

    Grey confusion

  12. Hello, who are your distributors in the US?
  13. Careful my friend. Trim and fit everything first and follow the directions carefully. Don't build anything out of sequence. Its a great j Kit but if something gets out of alignment things go south fast.
