    Very Fire

    I am not familiar with them, Very Fire appear to do a lot of ship/naval subjects so your question may get a more knowledgeable reply if posted in the Maritime Modelling area.
  2. Yes please, I would be interested in seeing any pics of IAC machines.
  3. The Airfix/Motorhead He-111 tribute was release in two boxings, the initial one(https://www.scalemates.com/kits/airfix-a07007a-heinkel-he111-h-6--1239911) included the base kit(A07007) markings as well as the Motorhead scheme. The second release of the tribute kit(https://www.scalemates.com/kits/airfix-a07007b-heinkel-he111-h-6-motoerhead-bomber-special--1241168) only contained the Motohead markings. HTH

    ....probably more like a scoreless draw!
  5. The Irish Air Corps operated the Hurricane post war, the Mk.I being retired in 1946 and the Mk.IIc serving until late 1947 when they were replaced by the Seafire.
  6. Another option is the Zvezda kit(same plastic as the current Revell 109F 1/72 kit) https://www.scalemates.com/kits/zvezda-7302-messerschmitt-bf-109-f-2--147849
  7. I don't ever remember the ESCI 1/72 Phantoms ever having pilots, at least not the RAF Phantom/F-4s(kit #9045) or the F-4C/J(kit #9031) kits that I built back in the day. I do remember Fujimi 1/72 F-14 and A-6 kits having some excellent pilot figures as well as the Monagram F-105 kit.

  9. I don't know if humbrol 28 is of accurate for the JP scheme but I have used Humbrol enamels 165 Medium Sea Grey & 167 Barley Grey(aka camouflage grey?), both available in the humbrol acrylic range. #28 is closer to Light Aircraft Grey #166
  10. Happy to be able to help.
  11. Have a look at Hannants, they appear to have something that may fit the bill. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/X72065?result-token=OTepw
  12. Have you tried sun bleaching the decals? I place the offending decals into a clear ziploc bag and taped them to the inside of a south facing window for a few days and the sun should reduce the yellowing. HTH

    Which glue?

    I use a number of glues for building models, for main assembly Tamiya Extra Thin cement (TET) is quite popular, available able from most good model outlets. Also I use old fashion tube poly cement and Tamiya cement for basic construction as well as super glue for various detailed parts and PE(not suitable for clear parts) and PVA for clear parts. HTH

    Very reminiscent of the artwork on the original Matchbox Harrier GR.1 boxart

    Also for what it it's worth, some of the European based traders have been know to accept Euro's in the past so if anyone happens to have a few €€€ left over from that their last trip to Euro-land it may be an option to have in the back pocket.
