  1. I just finished the Bobcat Yak-28P and this parts breakdown looks far less complicated, and therefore probably better fitting, than the Bobcat version.
  2. As we have seen lately it would appear that the 'other' company has had the wind taken out of their sails, in fact they don't even have any sails anymore! This one looks fine anyway.
  3. ** WARNING ** DO NOT INSPECT TOO CLOSELY!! 😁 Finished after a huge struggle, lots of filler and a mask set that didn't really work very well.. It's the only game in town which is why I got it in the first place. 70 grams of weight in the nose to stop it being a tail sitter. Only recommended for the experienced modeller. Cheers Warren
  4. Finished.. Old Trumpeter kit. Hardly any filler. Tamiya X-11 and XF-19 paints. Mask set which worked well. Thanks for looking. Warren
  5. Hi Beefy. I have started a couple of wingy things for a bit of a break. Next 1/200 subject is the Rodney's victim, Bismarck. Jeff, you are correct there but larger ones are much easier! Cheers Warren
  6. Hi Jeff. If you need anymore info on the Rodney just give me a yell as I have a very good reference her I can refer to. Cheers Warren
  7. Thanks mate but I am leaving them the way they are for now. If you noticed there is no rigging either.. couldn't face it.. might do it later.
  8. It slides... I only put that derrick there a day or so ago and forgot all about that door. Let me just delete that photo...
  9. First up thanks for your side views you made as they where what I went used for my pattern. I blew them up then cut masks from ordinary paper and put them in place with masking tape. I never use Bluetack as I find it leaves residue whenever I use it. But much of the paint on the superstructure has been done with the good-ole hairy stick as well. Too hard to mask up something with PE all over it. The reason why I stopped rivet-counting with the paint was purely down to availability and the fact that paint colour on ships changed all the time back in WWII due to the weathering effects of the environment. If availability had not been non-existent for Colourcoats I would have used them like I have before. Sorry but your distributor in Australia is rubbish and never has them in stock and I could not be bothered waiting while he got them in. I still don't understand how a distributor can get Colourcoats but a private person can't. I know all about Royal Mail restrictions etc bu why can't the pots travel by sea? It may be slow but at least they will get here. Thanks again, Warren
  10. Airbrush.com (I think!) is where I buy mine. Great service and no problems shipping overseas. Thank you.
  11. There are a few good reasons I didn't use Colourcoats, the main reason being they won't post to Australia anymore. ANother reason was that the distributor for my region don't normally have them in stock. They are always 'on order'. Lifecolor paints are really excellent once you get used to them. Cheers
