  1. Have got the Airfix Sea Vixen in the to do pile. Hobby Boss is not the manufacturer of choice, it's just when looking for a Tornado F.3 I also came across the Hawk T.1a as well. I know the Airfix T.1a has a few flaws and wondered if the HB put them right. Yes I do only do RAF/FAA
  2. Currently building the Airfix Javelin and thinking of my next project. Been looking at the 1/48 Hobby Boss Tornado F.3 and Bae Hawk T.1a kits and after some feed back on them. Any points to watch out for during the build. TIA
  3. Cheers for the replies guy's Will have to get hold of a tin
  4. After having problems with Alclad High Speed Silver I'm looking at trying Xtracolor's offering. So does this have to go on a gloss black base? The problem with the Alclad is more than likely my doing as I have never had a problem with their other paints. Must add that I really like using the brand as well as the pre thinned Mil-Spec paint. Also does the Xtracolor offering have a metallic finish? TIA
  5. Thanks to all who have posted an answer. I asked the question as I'm building the new Airfix wimpy and this is the first time I've moved into the dark side of 72 scale, usually do 32 & 24 scale where you can get away with a soft edge. So hard edge it is.
  6. Quick question. Did the green/dark earth camouflage on the Wellington have a hard or soft edge. TIA
  7. First off I'll start by wishing everybody a merry xmas. Now for the main part. Changing scale due to running out of room for the 1/32 and 1/24 scale a/c so this year doing more 1/48 scale. For xmas the wife bought me 4 Airfix kits, 1/72 Victor B.2, 1/48 Hunter F.6, Meteor F.8 and Blenheim Mk.1F. The last time I built an Airfix kit god was a still a lad. Must say I'm really impressed with the kits and how Airfix has come on in leaps and bounds. Now waiting for the Vulcan. Chris
  8. Nice looking pair of Mossies. Especially like the B.Mk.XX as a really good friend of mine, who passed about 6 years ago, served on 627sq at Woodhall Spa. After VE Day, he was down to go to the Far East with Tiger Force. When that was cancelled he went on Avro Yorks with Transport Command.
  9. On an early war Spitfire with silver u/s, was this just lacquered or was it sprayed? TIA
  10. Have a couple of parts that I need copies doing for a future build. Is their anybody out there who can help me out and do them for me. Obviously I'll pay what ever it costs. TIA

    Looking for a Ju88C-6 night fighter in 1/48 scale. So far have seen the ICM and Dragon kits. Have never built any of these brands so my question is simply which is the best one? TIA
  12. The red and white striped Fw190 was operated by JV44 (Jagdverband 44), this unit was commanded by Adolf Galland. The aircraft were painted with striped under surfaces so as to identify them against friendly fire from the flak crews as they were used as top cover for the Me262 jets when taking off and landing. The unit was nicknamed the papagei staffel (parrot squadron).
  13. Thanks for the info, that is the handle in question. If it was for the brake chute it wouldn’t have been a problem as I intend to do a F.6A using the parts supplied in the kit.
