  1. Nice! Unfortunately, too rich for my blood
  2. Would a brushed layer of klear over the enamel not act as a barrier?
  3. So, my bad Angel encouraged me to buy an Airfix Spit XII, and this thread is very interesting. I think, for me, that I'd want to try to reduce the fuselage height a bit, and use an Eduard rudder. @Troy Smith, I have seen your earlier pics, but do you have any further details on the front fuselage cut? Rgds Martin
  4. Thanks for the warning! I've added the rear bulkhead / armour plate to a fuse half, and will extend the floor at the rear appropriately so the ip will fit. A slice of card glued underneath the existing floor should do. It'll be hidden by the seat in any case.
  5. Aren't the colours for UK WWII roundels as printed on PrintScale sheets much too bright?
  6. Hi Pete, No need for apologies. They don't show up well on the photos. Rgds, Martin
  7. Thanks, Pete. In answer to your question, yes she was. 199 Sqn. I have added 8 Mandrel aerials on the underside in the appropriate locations (taken from information in Streetly's book on 100Gp). I have also added a Window dispenser. Rgds Martin
  8. Finished pics now included in RFI. Thanks for following. Rgds Martin
  9. Thanks, Echen. Thanks, Colin.
  10. Yep. Wasn't too interested in the pre-1930 bit. I thought the quest for fighter speed and firepower chapters, together with the bombers to attack Germany one, were good. I also thought that better use of illustrations (eg how the various fighter specs. linked together chronologically, tables of Air Staff organisation, etc.) could have added clarity. Rgds Martin Thanks Roger. Thanks, HS!
  11. Thanks, Adrian. I should really finish my Matchbox A-20 for the gb, but I've lost interest. I fancy something oob. Airfix Tempest? Sword Tarpon? Tamiya He 219? Got to get my mojo back for starting my Airfix Sunderland! Tell me: what did you think of the book? Rgds Martin
