    Import duties from China

    I want to buy the Tiger Models 1/35 combat boat 90/CB90 6293 from China. (it seems hard to get here in the UK) and the supplier says additional import fees and brokers fees may be incurred. Has anyone got away without paying these charges or is it a slam dunk, I will have to pay? eBay £36.80 + £14 postage.

    Tailsitter for take off

    Hi. This might seem a dumb question for many, but I've seen photo's of Scimitars' and Buccaneers ready for take off on aircraft carriers tail sitting, I just wondered how they did it. (sarcastic comments accepted but don't be too boring, thanx).

    Revell 1/32 Mustang.

    Looking good, but be careful gluing the instrument panel to the fuselage sides (suggest leaving one side free hanging), the front windscreen is a bit too narrow so you'll have to pinch that area closed.
  7. Hope it's better than the 1/32 P-51, must have been done by Revells B team.

    Material for canvas lorry tilts: solution?

    I've found one of the best materials for canvas/bedding in 1/35 are the spectacle wipes, dead cheap and they dry hard into your preferred shape. I can't see (no pun) why they can't be used in your little scale. Worth a go?

    Transparent PVA Craft Glue, The Works

    Just seen your post as I've just bought a bottle from Hobbycraft. Same price but different bottle though I suspect the same product. Might make a bit of difference than the usual white glue.
  10. I was pleasantly surprised with Revells Aqua paints. I use their own brand thinner and they spray really nice. I thought they were a bit gimmicky looking at them (silly pots).
  11. 'bout time. Goody goody goody

    F-15E Strike Eagle - Revell 1:48

    Nice build. That canopy has the same problem as mine, it's not the seam too much but there's a bit of sag and it seems a bit '3rd rate', it's the weakest part of the kit. I have two of these kits and the first canopy had what looked like black soot embedded in it. Got a replacement though from them. Apart from that, the detail is great, one of Revells better kits. I can't wait too see the finished bird.
  13. I use MTN Turquoise Green - RV-219 300ml Water Based Spray Paint. Decant and thin with Tamiya thinners. Sprays beautifully and if you think it's too green, a light coating of clear blue over the top but I left mine as is. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00NIPHJ62/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  14. A joy to watch. Great work!

    1/32 Revell (new tool) P-51D-5 Mustang

    Looking good. Making mine at the moment and it's a struggle to be honest. It's the silly breakdown of the different variants which don't fit neatly (but that's modelling I guess). For the same price you can get the Dragon P-51 and although not perfect, it goes together a lot better than this Revell kit. Carry on regardless
