  1. My brother loves this plane and wants to build one. The only plastic one we've found is Amodel. What's the quality like? I don't think I've built an Amodel kit. Ta Darren
  2. Thanks will look out for them on my next visit to my LHS
  3. Due to having moved to a smaller house I can no longer keep my airbrush, compressor and spray booth out all the time and as I'm currently on a 1:144 kick at the moment, and I'm not too good at brush painting, which Tamiya, Humbrol or other manufacturers rattle cans would you suggest for doing mainly WW2 RAF (and some German planes). It seems way too much of a faff to get the airbrush set up for a square inch or two of painting For example dark earth, dark green, sky, sea/ocean greys and PRU blue.
  4. Not according to the part of the article I've just read. "... are kits which have a slightly less part(s?) than standard models and are slightly less challenging to build" Simpler tracks at least for the tanks Going for wargamer market by the look of it
  5. cheers, I will search them out
  6. thanks Paul, very helpful
  7. I'm thinking of doing a little dio of my 144th Ju.52 in a snowy scene. Any ideas on how to do snow in that scale? Thanks
  8. Thanks for the link I'd be grateful if you could post a few pictures.
  9. Thanks for the heads up - I sort of assumed they would be of the same period so might go for the Nelson if I have a choice
  10. I see there is the old Tamiya kit available and a newer Meng kit (but getting on for three times the price). How do these kits compare and is it worth the extra for the Meng kit?

    Pre War Hurricanes

    I saw a programme on TV recently - I think it was something like "The True Cost of the War". On of the presenters on it was Andy Robertshaw, who pops up quite a lot in these types of programmes talking about planes, tanks, guns etc. In this particular episode they were talking about the Battle of Britain and he said that one reason the Hurricanes took on the bomber because the Bf.109 had a ceiling of over 30,000 feet whereas the Hurricanes ceiling was only 17,000 feet. I've tried to find this info on the net but only find a ceiling mentioned of one similar to the 109. Was he correct?
  13. Not usually my thing but I am tempted by this kit at this price. Is it a top quality one does anyone know?
