  1. I was very lucky, I purchased a Welsh Models Vanguard for the ridiculous price of £5 from a modeller at the Milton Keynes show a couple of years ago, following advice from a friend in my model club I cut the front cabin section from the Airfix kit and substituted it with the front of the Welsh Models kit. After a lot of fiddling and faffing it finally looked okay to me, it has been on display on my club stand on the model show circuit this year and received a favourable response. We are all different, I could not live with the failings of the Airfix kit, others can. Bryan
  2. The nose contours are still wrong, it will take a great deal of work to correct them. Bryan
  3. I built this kit a few years ago, quite a bit of work needed to get a good result but well worth the effort. It may be worth your while to look at the build article on Perth Military Modelling site, I found it very helpful. Bryan
  4. Well done superb model, the KLM livery always looks good. Bryan
  5. Very interesting Radleigh, Looking forward to seeing your progress on this one. Bryan
  6. I think that you are in for a very "interesting" build, it may be worth your while seeking out the build blog for this kit on the ARC forums. Bryan
  7. Very interesting thanks for posting, I think that I will stay with the Acrylic though. Bryan
  8. It says Acrylic on the bottle I have, Bryan
  9. I use Tamiya XF-56 Metallic grey, no longer use enamels. Bryan

    Airbrush Woes

    I use Tamiya and Mr Hobby acrylics thinned with Mr Thinners, I prime with Halfords orTamiya out of a rattle can . So far this has worked for me, I stopped using Vallejo Air because it clogged up my airbrush even when used with Vallejo thinners.
