  1. Can you get 1/32 Panavia Tornado decals for TWCU circa 1982? Dave

    I was going to build this one but then bought a built one of eBay. I did start with the Airfix kit as it the correct fuselage length but obviously has to have the tanker parts cut out if using the K2 kit and a probe to the nose if using the old BA version (nose probe was used for instrumentation not refuelling). I don't think there is harm using a Roden kit, they would all need rework to them anyway. Dave
  3. Hello all, Where's the best place to park and watch around RAF Marham to get the best viewing? I'm looking to go on the 28th to view the 9 ship formation flypast. Dave
  4. Thanks for the hints and tips guys, I didn't realise Alclad would be that thin. That was my only thought for rubber right back to the plastic.
  5. For the first time properly, I have started to use an airbrush for painting. I got a RDG tools airbrush and compressor for a Christmas present. I have done some practices on scrap models to try and get the right paint/thinner mixture. I've also been using Alclad 2 Aluminium which doesn't need to be thinned and went on well on a test model but now have a problem with an actual model. First the primer went on very rough, so rubbed down so it was smooth again and re-primer. Now the Aluminium has gone on but seems to still show where the primer was still rough, how do I solve this? I only have only ever used a Badger airbrush with the old canister type. Also, being quite dumb and all but is Vellejo surface primer actually go on quite thin?

  7. What schemes would this kit build into?
  8. Just bumping this subject. I'm just in the process of building both variants released. I've only built one kit by Mikro-Mir - Blackburn Beverley and took ages to build. For a small scale kit, I'm disappointed at how the kit has to be constructed. No locating lugs, several parts to the fuselage where a full length is sufficient, too much complexity to the cockpit, wheel wells and engines. I don't like how you have to build the undercarriage legs before the airframe is built up. Far too many very small parts to add, some even small the my pointed nose tweezers can hold. Flash on all parts with also some parts that are molded as one piece look like have two halves stuck together and that aren't aligned up. My kit were bought from Hannants in November, so unless this is just a bad batch I'm reluctant to carry on or buy any more Mikro-Mir kits. If i do carry on, how do I contact Mikro-Mir? I've sent a message on Facebook regarding I have messed up the fuselage parts for the Tu-22UD kit but no reply. Thanks Dave

    Any good for you? Dave BAC 1-11 XX105 (1) by ravodavo, on Flickr
  14. Very interesting information. I started mine last year but got side tracked on other things. The thing I've got a problem with is the shape of the fuselage, one side has the tail end has bent in and the two halves don't meet with one half taller than the other. Dave
  15. Yeah, I made mine about 7 years ago now - haven't bought the MR2 yet.
