  1. Can't help with paints question, but that is looking like a real brute of an aeroplane. Lovely.
  2. Looking good - I'm guessing the primer will show up more sink holes as well....
  3. Heavy duty modelling going on there - good luck with it.
  4. A very useful tool - I have used mine quite a few times.
  5. Not used them before, but can see some uses for them. Looks like The Works do a cheapo version, so I'll be checking those out.
  6. That looks like it is itching to be painted - nice work.
  7. I reckon you've made one of these truck things before. All very convincing work - looks great.
  8. I use Palm Labs, Digbeth, Birmingham for my developing. They will also scan any film into the format of your choice. I think print film is more stable over time than slide, but I'm no expert by any means. https://www.palmlabs.co.uk Perhaps you could have one of the films developed, and they can let you know what the results are? Then you can make a decision on the remainder? Good luck, and let us know how it goes if you do get them developed?
  9. Great idea - no. 1 son is a meteorologist, so it's a family thing. Thinking a Choroszy Modelbud Viima (Gale) would fit the bill nicely.
  10. Just good practice for my Mach 2 Alouette I reckon!
  11. Prior to priming again, it was noticeable that the marbling in the resin was more pronounced. I don't know if this was a reaction during the paint removal process. Once the primer was on the state of the resin was clearer - far worse than when the kit was actually started, and it wasn't great then. Anyhow, chances of finishing by the deadline are slim, but the KUTA GB isn't that far away in any case. Interestingly, this was a kit up for consideration as a Blitzbuild candidate - dodged a bullet there I reckon.
  12. Not sure how I missed this - definitely interested. Add me to the list please?
  13. Well, on revisiting the kit, it had 'sweated' even more under the primer - so stripping nearly everything off seemed a sensible way forward. I used Mr.Color levelling thinner. It has a strange affect on the resin - some of it disappeared, assumed dissolved. Anyhow, it'll dry off tonight, and I'll give it a coat of primer in the morning.
  14. Back with it tomorrow - I'll give the Tamiya paint a go, nothing to lose really.
  15. I think it's down to the operating conditions and the paint finish - they have the 'Have Glass' finish, (I think?). Perhaps someone can confirm?
  16. Thanks - stop by for a cuppa if you make it. Thanks - there is a park and view option - not sure what the cost is, (we camp for a few days), but I imagine it will be less than official show entry.
  17. Here are a few from the Totterdown Farm campsite - slightly different perspective from inside the show ground, but no doubt just as melty - it was warm.
  18. Slow progress on this. Parts have been tidied up and primed as we go, whilst deciding on what finishes to use on the parts that were previously chrome. I think a dull aluminium for anything below the chassis, and a chrome like finish above - we'll see. I'll be using some 'wood' decal for the benches in the back, and a bright red/pink for the upholstery perhaps. The tyres are slightly odd shapes, however the tread will be roughed up in any case, so it shouldn't be an issue. The fit of parts looks very good in general.
  19. I think I've got a decent one of these sheets in the decal stash - lmk if you want them and I'll check once I am back at base.
