  1. Hi Peter, I have not heard of hot transfers, but interestingly enough that's almost exactly how I apply traditional transfers: warm, almost hot water, blotted down with a cotton bud, then an application of Solvaset and left alone overnight. These HGW decals almost sound like those temporary tattoos!
  2. That's what I'm thinking. I can't be the only one hoping for this.
  3. Okay, seriously, they've GOT to be doing a CAEW next, right?!
  4. Completing lesser-quality kits builds character. If anything, it's looking great. I tried building this kit in 1996, never finished it, and it put me off Strike Eagles for years. I'm only just finishing another Strike Eagle (this time, the new Academy kit).
  5. Oooh I'm excited. It'll either be a PLAAF J-7, Pakistani Q-5, Singaporean F-5, Malaysian Nuri/Sky King or Aussie Mirage.
  6. Hi everyone, Does anyone know, other than buying a C-27J or C-130J kit and robbing the props, if one could get the Dowty 6-bladed props in 1/72? I've looked about and it much to my annoyance, Attack Squadron apparently didn't add props in with their engine kit.
  7. That looks excellent! What did you use for the metallic finish?
  8. I"m fairly sure that Airfix is interested in making a new mold of this in the future, because they've kitted almost every cold war British aircraft by now, with the Tornado, Hunter, Sea Vixen and Javelin in 1/72 still to go, I think. Maybe after the Bucc?
  9. I am also up and running. Thank you for re-enabling our addiction!
  10. Hi Mike, Here's my tracert: Tracing route to britmodeller.com [] over a maximum of 30 hops: 1 3 ms 2 ms 2 ms homeportal [] 2 29 ms 23 ms 23 ms 75-27-164-1.lightspeed.iplsin.sbcglobal.net [] 3 * * * Request timed out. 4 * * * Request timed out. 5 * * * Request timed out. 6 * * * Request timed out. 7 * reports: Destination net unreachable. Trace complete. SBCGlobal is also known as AT&T internet. I'll give them an earful.
  11. Thank you, everyone! Looks like this won't be as easy as it looks. I'll have to take another look at the kit tonight to figure out how to extend the wing chord, but I think chopping the leading edge of the wing off, pivoting the leading edge at the wing tip a few degrees, then filling the resulting space would be the "easiest" way to achieve this, then adding the wingip extension. This makes extending the fuselage fore and aft of the wing the second hardest task, and adding the 3° anhedral the easiest of the tasks. Well, let's see how this goes!
  12. Aft stretch is between the wingroot and engine mounts, correct?
