  1. Gotta love Orkz. there's so much scope for weathering and imagination. Looking forward to your next update. Keep at it.
  2. Hello all, Would anyone know of a source for the DH emblems in 1/32nd scale please? I will probably require some for the struts of a TigerMoth at some point. I plan on modelling a privately owned example that has varnished wooden struts with the DH emblem as decals. Thanks for any help. Cheers.
  3. Probably best to leave it as is Peter but linking back to this thread from your build is a great idea, thanks. I'm eagerly looking forward to you getting started. Stay safe.
  4. Just so we're clear, I didn't ask for the thread to be moved folks. I can understand the reason and agree that we have mentioned aircraft from other eras but I'm not unhappy about the way things have gone. Tbh, buried down here in chat I wouldn't be surprised if this is the last we see of this thread. It took me all my time to find it and I was looking for it Thanks for everyone's contributions and good luck with your builds guys. Cheers.
  5. Do you mean the 1/32nd scale Revell Hawk Si? If so I think you'll enjoy it. @224 PeterPeter, good to hear your thoughts on the kit. I will keep an eye out for your WIP thread.
  6. Lovely result Bill. That turned out beautifully. Well done. For the balance weights, could you dip some wire into CA adhesive a couple of times until you get a hard blob of glue on the tip? I think that's what I did from memory
  7. Looking forward to it Peter. I treated myself to the Airscale IP and a set of Montex masks that WIP suggested earlier in the thread. I'm not sure if I shall get the resin seat but the joystick looks much better than the kit part. Please begin ASAP so that I can crib your ideas. Cheers.
  8. Superb additions Arnaud, well done. You are obviously a big fan of Rafale. perhaps you could produce an entire model for sale one day? No-one makes Rafale in 1/32nd scale.
  9. Superb work as usual Peter. Fascinating to watch. Re: the fabric wing covering. Isn't there a decal manufacturer that makes fabric/canvas effect decals? *Edit: I was thinking of Aviattic https://www.aviattic.co.uk/linen-effect--wood-grain-decals.html Scroll down for clear version for use over silver. Since these are 1/32nd scale I'm not sure if these would suit what you're considering Peter.
  10. @Graham BoakBoak. Thanks Graham. I wonder if it could be possible to combine the engines? Perhaps the Spitfire gearbox could be persuaded to fit the Mossie engine if the latter is significantly better than the Spitfire engine? @Work In Progress Thanks WIP. I seem to recall the Mustang engine being better than the Spitfire when I built them way back when. My reasoning for considering the Mossie engine was that there might be more of them languishing in folk's stash
  11. Hello folks, May I pick everyone’s collective brains please? I am thinking out loud really but wondered whether the two RR Merlins included with the Mosquito kit are much better than the ones in the older Spitfire or Hurricane kits? For those who have both kits, what would you say? Also, if as I expect, they are better could one be swapped into a Hurricane or Spitfire to jazz the old kits up a bit? I imagine that they aren’t the same mark of engine but do they differ enormously? A plan formed in my tiny mind and I’m wondering how feasible it might be?
