  1. Yes, especially when the kit in question has no intake trunking detail or engine faces so you just have a dead end.
  2. Do any aftermarket companies make these any more? I think TwoMikes did a few years ago, but as far as I can tell they are no longer produced.
  3. Thanks, I was leaning towards Post Office Red so I'll go with that unless someone knows differently. Though I've just realised that the red on the decals may not be a match so I may have to do some experimenting!
  4. Apologies if this is answered elsewhere, but I've been searching and not found anything definitive. What is the correct red for the tail of 56 Squadron Phantoms? I'm trying to do depict the aircraft on the Revell boxing of the 1/48 Hasegawa kit. The instructions say Revell "Fiery Red" but I don't trust the Revell colours to be correct . . . I've got decals for a 56 Squadron Tornado F.3 which say the colour should be "Postoffice Red", I've also seen someone say "Signal Red" is the colour they used. So which is the correct one?
  5. I've got this Revell version of the Hasegawa kit, and I plan on making XV426 as featured on the cover of the box. I've got a few questions which hopefully someone can answer Are the decals provided in the kit accurate for XV426? What are the correct BSC codes for the greys, red tail and cockpit interior ? (I'm assuming the Revell paints suggested are probably wrong!) Are the British FOD guards flat with two handles? The US ones seem to have a more three dimensional shape. Thanks!
  6. Good finds, thank you very much!
  7. Does anyone know of any aftermarket companies which sell seeker head covers for 1/48 AIM-9's? I know Eduard do a set of resin missiles that come with the covers, but I don't really want to buy a load of missiles I don't really need if I can help it. Thanks in advance!
  8. Duralumin is very resistant to corrosion in water and acidic waters (the soils in that area of Burma are acidic), but it corrodes badly in alkaline waters.
  9. You can just make out the roundel on top of the wing, just under the rudder. Looks full-colour to me.
  10. There is a great build here that might be of interest http://s362974870.onlinehome.us/forums/air...howtopic=153212
  11. Well they were getting on a bit . . .
  12. These pics may or may not help! http://web.bg.uw.edu.pl/welw/military.pl/u...nder/rycina.gif http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb2/ken...ng/POT_5220.jpg http://www.air-and-space.com/20051018%20Ed...20front%20l.jpg http://www.air-and-space.com/20051018%20Ed...%20head%20l.jpg http://f.blog.xuite.net/f/c/3/0/23928322/b...34687637/14.jpg
  13. Video up on the BBC site now: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-14106730
  14. End of the year at Modelzone? Though I suspect 1/48 F-18 for £10 and 1.32 Tornado ECR for £15.
  15. Puma down in Hampshire, no serious injuries though. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-14034511
