  1. I have studied that photo and others on the net and if you look closely at the 2 thicker "wires" they appear to be bar which is threaded at the ends and are rolled into an aerofoil shape in between the threaded ends. Also some of the other "wires" appear to be bar.
  2. I bought some recently, it is in tall flatish bottles of 1ltr similar to flash cleaner and is as per the photo earlier in this thread is with other cleaning products. It is also on their website
  3. It seems to have been desgined by a committee of whom either did not meet or talk to each other! To get it to fit there is alot of trimming and adjustment of plastic to get it together. (Hacking about). Tamiya it is not, but it could have been so much better given some recent Revell releases. I have one part built on the shelf of doom at the moment most of building done. The above was my response to the F/A-18E review on here last year. The fusalage body does not fit in th location slot without trimming the thickness down alot, the outer wing will not fit due to the joiner being to big and not fitting in position. Revell also indicate that the bulkheads in the main fuslage engine area have to have 1/2mm removed from them to allow the top and bottom to come together. The cockpit part has to have alot of trimming to get it to fit the rear half and the front of the intakes require very careful fitting together to mininise clean up and preserve the detail. One good point is the main wheel well which is very good. This kit does give us a good F/A-18E at a good price if you can stuggle through it but I don't think it does thier reputation alot of good. There is a good build LSP. It seems to have been desgined by a committee of whom either did not meet or talk to each other!

  4. Kent Models have it available on Ebay for £118 + shipping. 3 available
  5. Scrap it, as it will be rusty in other places and welding will only be welding on rust . Replacement tank would be the cheapest the option

    PayPal Scam

    All the time from them, Visa and Paypal, closing your account, having £600 taken from your visa account and money begin taken from our Amazon account. Both phone calls and emails. The phone slammed down and all the emails deleted and poeple who are live on the phone are asked if they should get a real job instead of trying to scam people. Don't give them half a chance. ,

  8. I have just bought one from Kent Models for £75 + £5.50 shipping. A bargain, I don't know if they still have them.
  9. I would love a p-51b and others in the mustang range but a F-51 only requires minor changes and can be done with only a minimal amount of investment in time and money.
  10. There is a one of these on Ebay for £15.03 LOL Paypal will be working O/Time on refunds!
  11. Had mine delivered yesterday with the missile set as separate parcels from Hobbyeasy . They left HE on 7-8 and were delivered on the 12 by EMAILING
  12. HLJ have them for delivery in Dec for £80 plus shipping

    Printed models.

    On ebay is a fully printed 1/48 Hercules fully finished all for approx £1200, in just printed form for you to finish and paint with materials they supply for £450. The end of modelling as we know it? I don't think so and I wonder how many they will sell. As an aside the props look very off vey curly! The seller is printedplanes
  15. This is going to cost as Jadlam have it on preorder for a minor amount of £999.99 what a bargain!
