  1. Does anyone know where I can get a set of the above for my Zulu Cobra, can’t find them anywhere on tinterweb, everywhere out of stock, are they not produced anymore??? TIA Steve
  2. We always had two up front, so not sure!
  3. I have the same kit and will be doing the same as you mate!
  4. If I remember correctly from my days flying in them, the pilots wore standard flight suits with helmets, some with visors, some without, personal preference if I recall! Hope this helps?
  5. PJ productions do a pilot with two different styles of helmet which would do!
  6. Not 100% sure, but didn’t PJ Productions mould a RN Pilot from the 50/60s Era?
  7. Great model, super detailed for a 1/72 kit Steve
  8. Amazing photos of an even more amazing model! Well done on a fantastic job! regards Steve
  9. Lovely job mate, got the same one in the stash! Does it need any nose weight in it? Steve
  10. Really nice build, might have to get mine off the shelf of doom and get it finished!
  11. Am sure Masterbox do a set of insurgents, try Hannants or even EBay mate!
  12. 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!!!
  13. 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
  14. 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!
  15. 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!
  16. Thanks Sundowner, I thought as much, thanks for the response! Steve
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Think it was 2005 they changed over mate!
  20. I used the Halfords range mate, I think it was Ford Polar Grey for the top, fuselage and Racking grey for the undersides. Steve
  21. Halfords do a Khaki in their camouflage range which I have read is a very good likeness to Hemp, together with their racking grey for the LAG, haven't tried it myself yet, future project in the making!!!!! Steve
