  1. Further to my original post regarding the destruction of the LCD screen on my Elegoo Mars 2 Pro, I then went and attempted to do exactly the same thing on my brand new Elegoo Mars 2!! So I sat down to work out how to prevent any further attempts to destroy the LCD screens. The simple solution was: XVTonker
  2. Hi Peter, we tended to ensure the HDU and surrounding areas were kept clean and in fact, they very rarely got dirty. John aka XVTonker
  3. Hi, I have one of Aircraft in Miniatures Blue Danube given to me by Neil Gaunt. The model is a single piece resin moulding which is more accurate than the Airfix injection moulded part and is a gem of a part XVTonker
  4. The HDU and internal fuselage areas, including the bomb bay tanks were painted gloss white. I spent many hours climbing over, and working on the HDU during my six years working on Victor K.2's on 55 & 57 Sqn's.I XVTonker
  5. A couple of new additions to the ladder portfolio. 1. TSR.2 in 1/72 and 1/48 scale 2. Supermarine Swift in 1/72 Examples of the crew ladder in use For all of you RAF Phantom followers, I'll be starting on crew ladder sets in 1/32, 1/48 & 1/72 very shortly. XVTonker
  6. Anything would be a starter John. I'll PM you XVTonker
  7. Some jacks were generic and for use on multiple types. If I remember rightly the ones for the RAF & RN Phantoms were American and specific to the Phantom. XVTonker
  8. I'm looking for the jacks that were used on the likes of the Canberra, Jaguar, JP, etc. I've got several Topic 1 AP's for various types but the information is pretty vague, and my memory of manhandling the flaming things under various aircraft, especially the Victor, makes me break out in a sweat just thinking about it XVTonker
  9. Thanks for that, I'm looking for as many of the three legged versions that were used on the likes of the Canberra, Jaguar, JP, etc Any info would be extremely handy. Thanks again XVTonker
  10. A bit of a weird one, but can anyone point me in the direction of where I might be able to get technical data, Air Publications, dimensions, etc of the various types of post-war aircraft jacks? Many thanks for looking XVTonker
  11. Items relocated in latest edit
  12. Julian very kindly moved my EE Lightning 3D resin crew ladders to this section last month, I now have a wider range of British aircraft crew ladders that I have produced in 1/32, 1/48 & 1/72 scale that I'd like to post at reduced pricing for Britmodeller's. Can you please advise how I add a post to this section to present the range of 3D ladders? Many thanks John
  13. As our Victor K.2's were repainted from green/grey/white they were referred to having been painted in Hemp/Light Aircraft grey therefore, I would go with the BS381C as the preferred document. XVTonker
  14. Working on them as we speak... John
