  1. Thanks for all your help. It was LSA I was thinking of, and it makes sense why I couldn't find any trace of it online. Shame to see another shop has shut.
  2. My fat fingers pressed post before I added the second paragraph. Hopefully the second paragraph narrows it down a bit..
  3. I've been stuck all morning trying to remember the name of model shop in the south of England, and it would be great if someone could remind me of its name. I remember that there used to be a model shop on the south coast I think, who had a three letter name beginning with L. They also used to advertise in MAI, and I can remember them stocking Eduard kits, but I cannot remember the name. Can anyone help ?
  4. Yes i was really dissapointed with the set tbh, I only used the serials and the H for the tail, the squadron markings and stencils were from the revell FGA.9 sheet and the insignia from Fantasy Printshop. Here's a picture of my build (finished during lockdown)
  5. Fair comment, was just thinking about Meng releasing the Dr.1, i know there was an 0/400 in the works but I dont see them releasing that !
  6. I have used the decals and was less than pleased. I found them resistant to most setting solutions, and the colours weren't quite right on my sheet and the serials were out of register. The bits i ended up using were the aircraft serials after some careful trimming. IMO I'd see if someone has the squadron crest for the nose spare from the revell FGA.9 sheet and go from there. Actually I've just realised you'd need to source the H for the tail too for XF442.
  7. I wonder if they've bought the rights to the Wingnut Wings Lancaster ?
  8. Great thank you. Do you use the tamiya panel liner wash ? As i can see them lurking in the background
  9. This is a lovely looking Vc. One question Do you seal the decals in with a clearcoat before you apply the wash/ lighter fluid or white spirit ?
  10. Agreed, the panel lines and rivets are some of the most crisp I've seen on any kit even including the new Eduard kits How they went from the spit 22/24 kits to the Buccaneer in a few short years is incredible !
  11. Just to chuck another colour into the mix, I quite like Mr Hobby 368 for Sky on my FAA builds.
  12. Hi yes, that sounds good to me ! I'll drop you a PM now. Gareth
  13. Why does the dutch football team get called Holland in that case ? As I've even seem the football term referred to as Holland whilst i was in the Netherlands.
  14. I've just sprayed out a couple of colours, left to right we have: Humbrol 74, Tamiya XF-4. Tamiya XF-60 and Tamiya XF-88. What do you guys think ?
  15. The reason that i asked about a colour match is that i have bought some of the new Humbrol enamel 74, and both tins are a very bright yellow, almost the exact same colour as Yellow Chromate primer. I thought Hawker yellow was a more Buff/Sky colour ? I have gone through my stash of paints and Tamiya XF88 seems to be the closest match to the pictures that Steve has posted up. If i get round to it I'll spray some Humbrol 74 and XF88 for comparison.
