  1. Probably true. However, anybody that has used their Brassin one piece cowl for their spitfires, know that they are too long and don't fit. Sure, after some trimming you can get them to fit, but you lose some detail in the process, which kinda defeats the purpose!
  2. Absolutely, and in no way was I aiming that as a criticism of the forums or it's membership, rather a nod to the collective knowledge on here that highlights these issues. I agree regarding the pricing, it does seem a bit steep. All the best. Ian
  3. I don't think there are many folk on here that would agree that Trumpeter get a pass for abysmal product design!
  4. You may have to cut out Tamiya paint masks yourself, but at least they fit the kit they're intended for. Unlike Eduard's.
  5. Yep, I and other members on here have found the same problem.
  6. Many thanks Tony. I'm interested to hear what they come back with. Ian
  7. Fully agree, you would have thought they would have tested the fit before release, particularly with it being designed to fit their own kit! I'm keen to hear what you find with yours, Tony
  8. I've had a go at shortening one, I actually took too much off and now it's a fraction too short, it's still too wide though. I did notice that the detail on the resin part doesn't match the kit detail, but I assumed this was because the resin part is superior to the kit parts, how wrong was I?!! Looks like I'll be giving a Barracuda cowl a try.
  9. Hi Tony That's great, much appreciated. Ian
  10. I've bought three of these to use on Eduard's Spits, the problem is, they don't fit! They are too long and are too wide at the front to match the nose profile. I've offered one up to the Mk.IX, MK.XVI and MK.VIII with the same result. I realise I can sand/trim to fit, but it defeats the whole point of buying them. I can replace the recessed detail, but the raised fasteners won't be so easy. I assumed as they were made by Eduard for their Spitfire, they would just be a drop fit. Has anybody else used these and had the same issue? Ian
  11. Both are really superb, well done. But, you may want to check the main undercarriage doors.......... Ian
  12. Currently building the exact same kit, in the exact same scheme, hope mine turns out half as good as yours.
  13. Absolutely phenomenal builds! Really glad I could help out. Ian
  14. Same here, out of all the varied brands I have used over the years, Tamiya, Mr Colour, Revell, Xtracolour, Xtracrylix, Humbrol, Vallejo etc, the only issues I have had have been with Humbrol enamels.
