  1. Does anyone know what the font name is for the double white lined tail codes on Tornados in GW1 or where i can get decal lettering in 1/48. Looking for BM
  2. Takamota

    1/48 BOL rails

    Struggling to find any of these anywhere. Anyone know of any or a kit that definitely has them in? Or have a couple they no longer need? Tom
  3. Just finished this one today. Not a bad kit considering it's 40 year age!! All that was required was a quick rescribe. Not much filler either which was a pleasant surprise! Paint used was Hataka in the main with Alclad Kleer Kote Flat to finish. Hope you like it!
  4. Kit Manufacturer: Airfix Scale: 1/24 Extras: None Paint: Hataka orange line Seen four or five of these built recently with all builders slating it in a big way and two of them binning the model half way through the build. I thought i'd give it a go to see what the fuss was all about. For a 45 year old kit I can safely say I was impressed and really don't see what the issue is other than the engine cowlings. But, back in the day, these were designed to be off or on and nothing in between. Technology back then was not as great as it is today so really not fair to expect this kit

  6. I had a go back in 2014 before the decals were released also. 1/48 scale but it is possible
  7. My GR4 has been sitting on the shelf for 6 years now with every aftermarket resin and photoetch set i could throw at it except metal gear....... not collapsed or shown any sign of collapse so far... As well as the cockpit i have resin electronic panels and lox bottle panel in there too.
  8. 1/32 Brimstone and launcher rails for Tornado/Typhoon pretty please
  9. undercoated with Tamiya X-1 mixed 50-50 with mr color self levelling thinners
  10. Number 3 for 2017 is this fantastic kit from Hasegawa. Goes together with almost no filler required anywhere. Metallics are various shades of Vallejo Metal Color and the other colours are mainly Tamiya.Thanks for looking
  11. Finished this one just before Christmas. Kit is Hasegawa and the scheme decals came from the Afterburner Decals Alaskan Aggressor sheet. Paints used were Tamiya for the black and white and Xtracrylix for the grey. Flory Models wash was applied before sealing it all with Alclad Klear Kote Matt.Was a pleasure of a build. Hope you all like. Thanks for looking.
  12. Thanks. The Vallejo metal Colour is fantastic IMHO. Sprays straight from the bottle and brush paints with ease also. Hard enough to mask in under 10 minutes..... I'm converted. Used to use Alclad for NMF but no more.
  13. I used chrome, alluminium and duralluminium
