  1. Although the stencil data will work for you the roundels and fin flash won't as they are a different shade of Blue. Try contacting John(Yannis) here he can print these in all 3 scales http://www.hafoncolors.com/
  2. I got my Steel Beach ones from Sprue Brothers, ok I know you asked for UK/EU but the postage was reasonable.
  3. Look here http://www.dstorm.eu/pages/color/france.html Pretty sure the scheme you're after is Arabia Type A1, I'm happy to be corrected but all F1's were Aluminium on the undersides as far as I know?
  4. Was that the reason behind Wonderland dropping it, I heard it wasn't selling due to postage charges being applied which were quite frankly ridiculous. I've started getting my Xtracolor from here https://www.aero-spezial-modellbauversand.de/Paints/Xtracolor:::1_2.html?language=en Postage from Germany is over half of what Wonderland were charging to send from Edinburgh to Inverness as they maintained it had to come by courier as Royal Mail wouldn't accept it due to it being a hazardous substance , strange how Royal Mail still deliver it to me today but with a German postage label on the package.
  5. The only two Kinetic kits that suffered from the hideous nose droop were the first batches of F-16 NATO Viper 48002 and 48004 the F-16A/B boxing. Both kits were subsequently fixed and if you were to buy any of these from a mainstream outlet it would be the updated boxings that you would be buying. The original misshaped boxing's still turn up from time to time on places like Ebay and the various modelling websites classified sections Personally I've built Hasegawa, Kinetic and Tamiya F-16's and none of them are poor just different, They all look the part and all build fairly easily, the Kinetic one is slightly over engineered but nothing too taxing. The following were all built using Aires cockpits and exhausts Hasegawa 'D' Kinetic 'C' Tamiya 'C'
  6. AIM-9's were carried for self defence on most F-4's whether they were assigned to FIS or TFS units
  7. The two pics above show AIM-120 AMRAAMS and not Skyflash, however Skyflash were never White either always Lt Grey.
  8. Definitely two tone Grey, Gris Moyen and Gris Clair although French are notoriously difficult to match. However I would say you wouldn't be far off with FS35237 and 36320
  9. There has been several F-16's flying with 36170 drop tanks. https://postimg.cc/image/7wi67jatx/
  10. The colour you're looking for for the F-16's is FS36170, but as you correctly state they don't have the Have Glass treatment. However it's more common to see normal FS36270 painted tanks on F-16's and the variation in Greys will give you a more interesting model to look at. For the F-22, I would say the tanks are 36118 as if I remember correctly they were developed for the F-15E as some sort of deployable tank( don't ask me what makes a deployable tank), during OIF/OEF.
  11. Don't take what I'm about to write as gospel as I don't have either the kit or cover in front of me. However looking at the Revell instructions on the internet, it looks like you have to remove the front portion of the intake at the first panel line where it starts to curve towards the intake face, then leave off the fan faces and the covers should then fit flush, for the exhaust leave parts 11 and 81 off and again the cover should fit flush.
  12. Aren't the Steel Beach covers exactly that , and not plugs? I've used several of Darren's sets and never had a problem with any of them, just a little clean up of edges and that's it.
  13. It'll be Aluminium, the same colour as the undersides.
  14. One's that I've came across would be at a guess and from memory approx 500mm/50cm long at most, I've also seen some short ones approx 250mm. RAF Tornado, Jaguar, Harrier etc etc.........
  15. I would drop Sprue Brothers an email as they normally adjust the shipping costs at point of postage and will refund you the difference.
