  1. Great model, super detailed for a 1/72 kit Steve
  2. Amazing photos of an even more amazing model! Well done on a fantastic job! regards Steve
  3. Another great show, well done to the organisers, now looking forward to the Nantwich show next month!
  4. Brilliant show, looking forward to it!
  5. Lovely job mate, got the same one in the stash! Does it need any nose weight in it? Steve
  6. Really nice build, might have to get mine off the shelf of doom and get it finished!
  7. Am sure Masterbox do a set of insurgents, try Hannants or even EBay mate!
  8. Thank you for all your replies guys, as usual, lots of great info, pity about the double Sidewinder, I fancied beefing up the jet with a couple on each wing, maybe next time!!!
  9. Am about halfway through my build of the above Kinetic 1/48 kit, and have decided to build it as part of a small diorama. I have a couple of questions which I hope someone can help me with? When the jet is on the ground, are the engine nozzles pointing downwards towards the deck? As before, when on the deck, are the flaps fully extended and do the undercarriage doors stay open? And finally, is there anything else that I have overlooked to build a jet on the ground? Did the Falkland jets carry double Sidewinders on each wing, or was it just a single missile on each side? Many thanks in advance for any help given Steve
  10. Am in the middle of building mine mate, and will be using the Revell spray cans, namely NATO olive, it's one of those aircraft that looks a different shade in different light!
  11. Thanks guys, that's one of the photos that got me asking the question, think I will go for the no helmet look on this one!
  12. Thanks Sundowner, I thought as much, thanks for the response! Steve
  13. As my ongoing 1/48 build of the mighty Herc continues, I have decided to do an in flight model due to sheer size of it, my question is, do the pilots wear Flight helmets or just the over the head type head phones TIA Steve
  14. Having just purchased the 1/48 version of above, looking to finish her in the green coloured version, but not sure which?? I usually use spray cans, Tamiya, Revell and Humbrol, but not sure which brand/green to use! Anyone built and painted theirs, and if so, which green did you use? TIA Steve
