  1. Any news on decals for this scheme? Cheers.
  2. Hi and good to see you back on your big Spit Charlie. Nice work on the wingtip lights. You got me thinking, do you think it might be possible to use a cylinder of clear sprue of the correct diameter in place of the solid plastic cylinder? I wondered if the sprue was rounded at the end it might be possible to colour it then mask it to spray cammo over it? What do you think? Nice work enhancing the radiators and carb intake. That sort of attention to detail is sure to pay dividends in the long run. Keep at it. Cheers
  3. Gotta love Orkz. there's so much scope for weathering and imagination. Looking forward to your next update. Keep at it.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. @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
  13. 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? What are everyone’s thoughts on the matter? *Edit: Perhaps it’s already been done and if so there might be a build thread that you know of? Please could you share a link if you have one? Thanks. Cheers
  14. You lucky blighter. This is a great idea. I'm looking forward to seeing how it all comes along.
  15. Bingo! That's just the ticket WIP. Many thanks for the link.
  16. Many thanks guys. As it turns out I may invest in a set of paint masks for the markings in an attempt to create the archetypal BoB Spitfire in my eyes. I suspect we may all have a vision in mind when someone mentions BoB markings. For me it should be green over earth/sky undersides with roundels above and below the wing and a yellow edge to the fuselage roundel. I believe Montex make a couple of sets that might suit. There are likely to be other purchases of aftermarket along the way I suspect.
  17. It's landed I've had the box open and had a fondle. A mixture of raised rivet and fastener detail with recessed panel lines. Very nice. She's a big girl too. This should be fun. One thing that is odd is the colour sheet for the painting and decals. It's double sided but has the same scheme on both faces.... It looks like a misprint. Can anyone shed any light on things?
  18. Go for it. You know you wanna @224 Peter I suspect mine might suffer a similar fate but at least there'll be something to open on Christmas morning. It'll be like being a kid again
  19. Well, after desperately trying to avoid buying one of these I’m afraid my determination waned and I pulled the trigger. Whether it’ll ever get built is another matter but it should be fun fondling the sprues in all of their flash bestowed glory.
  20. Hi Ed. Thanks for detailing the trials and tribulations of this old kit. It has been quite an eye opener for me. There really is alot of work to be done in order to create a reasonable model and you’re doing a fine job. Looking forward to seeing more. Cheers.
